Is Nando’s Halal in Australia?



Nando’s is not a Halal brand and their company does not pay any fees for Halal certification. However, Nando’s chicken suppliers all carry Halal certification in order to meet the needs of their broad customer base and export market.

Some of their franchised restaurants in Australia have obtained individual restaurant Halal certification. The venues listed below DO NOT SELL BACON.

The following Halal certified Nando’s in NSW are:

Bankstwown (Permanently Closed)

Address: Centro Bankstown, 12/41 North Terrace, The Appian Way, Bankstown NSW 2200

The following Halal certified Nando’s in VIC are:


Address: Broadmeadows Central, G157A/1099-1169 Pascoe Vale Rd, Broadmeadows VIC 3047

  • However, Nando’s kitchens use two distinct cooking surfaces within their restaurants to cook chicken on:

    1. The open flame grill, commonly seen at the front of the store: and
    2. A flat top grill, usually housed in the back of the restaurant area.

    Bacon is only cooked on the flat top grill at the back of the restaurant, therefore, any chicken on the bone products (including quarter, half or full chickens, grilled tenderloins, ribs and thigh pieces) are all cooked on the open flame grill and do not come in contact with bacon. These products are therefore all suitable to consume. In addition, Nando’s are happy to receive requests for the chicken on the burgers, wraps, pita or salads to be cooked on the open flame grill should you wish.
