Nando’s reopens revamped Al Ghurair branch
Dubai, September 29, 2010
Nando’s, the international Afro-Portuguese chain of restaurants and the home of the peri-peri flame grilled chicken, re-opened its revamped restaurant at Al Ghurair City.
The new restaurant’s enhanced ambience and interiors have been designed to draw a much greater customer base while at the same time keeping its loyal clients coming back for more.
The Nando’s at Al Ghurair was the second Nando’s restaurant in UAE and the first to be launched at the then newly re-furbished Al Ghurair City. Today, there are eight Nando’s outlets in the UAE; six in Dubai, one in Sharjah at Al Qasba and one in Safeer Mall at RAK.
Nando’s plans to not only double its number of outlets but has also taken strategic steps to ensure existing outlets perform more effectively and increase customer turnaround.
The previous Nando’s restaurant at Al Ghurair had an old worldly charm with low ceilings, Mediterranean arches, lantern lights, family cubicles and green wood interiors.
The new restaurant’s interiors are a fusion of contemporary woodwork, niches in walls graced by traditional Afro-Portuguese artifacts, warm textures and fabrics, a hint of local Arabic elements, paintings splashed with the spirit and colours of vibrant modern African civilisations – all bathed in golden lights that resembles the radiant dawn. The most striking feature of the decor is the graceful olive tree placed in the centre of the restaurant with seating around it, bringing to life the glorious African landscape, stated Suhail Gidwani, CEO Nando’s UAE.
“At Nando’s we always theatrically place the grill upfront where customers can have a full view of it. This not only allows our clients to see their chicken being flame-grilled but also assures them that their meals are freshly prepared and that our kitchens are always clean.”-TradeArabia News Service
