Nando's Oceanus Pre-Opening Event

Last Tuesday, I was invited to Nando's Pre-Opening event at the newly opened Oceanus Waterfront Mall, the invitation stated I could bring along 3 friends for a complimentary dinner at Nando's, so I happily brought along my younger bro and 2 of my friends.

As everyone knows, this is the 2nd Nando's restaurant in Sabah, the 1st Nando's was opened at 1Borneo Hypermall back in 2013. 

Traffic in the evening was as usual quite hectic, by the time we got there, it's already 6.30pm, we were late thanks to it. We even have some trouble in finding the parking area in Oceanus, which is at the 3rd floor.We drove around in 1st & 2nd floor but couldn't find the parking ticket machine. Thankfully we found it at 3rd floor, lolz.

The newly opened Nando's is located at F37 & F38, First Floor, opening hour is between 10.00am-10.00pm from Mon-Sun. The restaurant was almost full by the time we got there, we were greeted enthusiastically by Nando's staff  and finally we were seated at a cozy table near the entrance after a quick check on the namelist and a handover of survey form and envelope.

We were served by a lovely girl named Santi, if I'm no mistaken, I'm really bad at remembering names,lolz. My bro decided on getting 1/4 chicken in Lemon & Herb sauce with a side dish of potato wedges & grilled veg.

Not So Brave! Indeed, lolz.

while the rest of us decided to be more adventurous and pick on the 1/4 chicken in Hot Peri-Peri sauce.

with a side order of coleslaw, chips and corn on the cob.

Nando's marinade and basting sauces are made of 100% natural ingredients and contain no added MSG, flavourant or colourants. The Peri-Peri chicken are absolutely delicious, well marinated and quite spicy, thankfully I didn't pick the extra hot, lolz.

Peri soup and garlic bread are also included in our complimentary meal. The Peri Soup is quite creamy and has the usual thick consistency of a mushroom soup, with a hint of spice.

Bottomless drinks of Coca-cola, Sprite, Fanta strawberry, Heaven and Earth Iced Lemon Tea kept us from being thirsty during meal.

Now remove all evidence... Hehehe

The bill was paid using these bank notes issued by bank of chickenland, lolz.

After receiving the balance from the chicken notes and completing the survey form, we finally decided it was time to go home, but not without a quick pic first, hah!

Nando's are definitely very generous, besides our complimentary meals, they even gave us something extra, vouchers for 1/4 chicken for our next meal. Yay! Thanks Nando's :)

Flame-grilled, Peri-Peri chicken with Afro-Portuguese inspired side dishes, Nando's offers a whole new dining experience. If you haven't tried out Nando's yet, do visit them as their Peri-Peri sauce are definitely worth trying.
