Peri peri chicken giant Nando’s looks set to open its latest restaurant here at Forestside Shopping Centre in south Belfast, it can be revealed.

The South African-owned firm will take one of the newly-constructed units at the centre, just off the Saintfield Road, according to new plans.

The newly-named Lesley Forestside will soon be home to a range of food operators. That also includes US fried chicken firm Popeyes, while it’s also expected burger business Five Guys could take a unit.

Speaking at the time, Gerrie Anderson, manager of the new restaurant, said: “We’re delighted to be opening our stunning new restaurant at the new Belfast Odyssey complex.

“We can’t wait to be giving customers the unique Nando’s experience and serving our delicious flame-grilled peri-peri.”
