Rochdale’s very first Nando’s will officially open for business on Wednesday 1 December, creating 40 new jobs.

Famous for its Portuguese-inspired peri-peri chicken dishes, the restaurant will offer indoor dining as well as collection and delivery.

The restaurant has space for 96 diners inside and four outside.

The South African restaurant has taken 3,500 sq ft on a 15 year-lease in the Riverside shopping complex.

Nando’s is located next to the entrance for Puttstars and Reel Cinema, and the forthcoming Loaded Burgers.
