In the news: Nando's to bring peri-peri favourites to Basildon's East Square

Visitors to Basildon Town Centre will soon be able to enjoy even more dining choice as Nando's brings its unique brand of flame-grilled peri-peri chicken to a new restaurant on the East Square cinema development.

The new restaurant will open later this year, with work beginning on site 2 August 2022. 

Nando's have more than 1200 restaurants worldwide, offering a delicious menu of peri-peri chicken with a popular range of sides and accompaniments in a uniquely themed setting.  

A spokesperson from Nando's said: "Nando's is very excited to be opening a new restaurant in East Square. We are relocating after successfully trading in Basildon since 2008 and look forward to being part of the new restaurant and leisure location in the town centre. The new restaurant will have 100 covers, a unique Nando's design and will open later this year." 

The new restaurant will be located in East Square, Basildon, part of the new development led by Basildon Council. The development will include six new dining experiences, including Orleto Lounge which opened in February 2022 and Kaspa's Desserts opening in Autumn 2022, as well as the upcoming Empire Cinema, a luxury state-of-the-art cinema, all right in the heart of Basildon town centre. 

Cllr Craig Rimmer, Cabinet Member for Regeneration at Basildon Council, welcomed the announcement: "I am so excited to welcome Nando's to the East Square development in Basildon Town Centre. The success of Orleto Lounge and the recent announcement of the upcoming Kaspa's Desserts, shows that people want to spend their time and money in Basildon. Nando's adds even more choice to this popular destination and the East Square development is bringing opportunity and a much-needed boost to the town centre."
