Nando's employee shares types of customers she sees every day - and drink trick they try

By Zahna Eklund

Let's be honest, who doesn't love a Nando's?

Almost all of us will have enjoyed the restaurant chain's famous PERi-PERi chicken at least once in our lives, and the laid-back environment of the franchise makes it a great place to go for a quick meal out.

But according to one employee, the types of people that most often frequent Nando's can be put into one of four groups - including one that always tries to nab free drinks.

A woman named Fiz posted a video on TikTok in which she ran through the common types of customers she faces on a daily basis and said she had been inspired to make her clip after seeing someone else take on the trend.

Fiz, who posts under the username @fiz.ox, first started with a picture of herself, and wrote: "POV [point of view] - you work at Nando's."

She then shared a picture of four young blokes who are likely to come in as a group, and claimed they're often the type of people who decide to shoot their shot and flirt with their waitress or with the person taking their order.

Fiz said one of their commonly used phrases is: "Can I order you, darling?"

The employee then moved on to take aim at customers who aren't daring enough with their food choices, as many still come into Nando's and question whether even the mildest of sauces will be too spicy.

After all, Nando's is famed for its range of PERi-PERi sauces that scale all the way from mild to extremely hot, as well as a couple of interesting flavours such as Lemon & Herb, which is one of the mildest sauces but offers a different flavour to the classic spices of the other options.

But Fiz still claims she's always asked: "Is Lemon & Herb going to be too spicy?"

The third group of customers often inconveniences staff working at Nando's, as they're the type to come in large groups and ask for tables of upwards of 20 people - meaning staff have to move tables around to accommodate them.

And the final type of customer is often a younger man who will try and take advantage of Nando's drinks scheme in order to bag himself some free Coca-Cola.

The restaurant chain currently offers bottomless refills for those who purchase a fizzy drink, and Fiz said customers will sometimes come in and ask for a glass of tap water - which is provided for free - before using the glass to get a refill of soda at no cost.

However, those customers will soon be out of luck, as Nando's is scrapping its free refill scheme in October this year.

Commenters on the video were in stitches over Fiz's statements, with the viral clip racking up over 77,000 likes since it was posted in April.

One person said: "Haha, so true."

While another added: "I work in Nando's this couldn’t be more true."

And a third wrote: "God I remember the days working there. So true."

Nando's has been contacted for comment.
