Our Story

It all started 34 years ago in Rosettenville when our father Francisco and Carlos, his son-in-law, started a small take-aways.

Twenty years later we opened our second branch in Edenglen. Within a year, we ran out of space. The response was amazing. Fortunately we were able to expand into another premises next to us. We continue to grow and have opened another branch in Cornwall View, Centurion.

O’ Peri Peri is family run with one brother at each outlet. Family run means we can keep our quality standards high. Even sons and wives play an active part.

With over 34 years experience, we’ve perfected our chicken from start to finish.

We marinate for at least 24 hours and then grill from fresh to keep them moist and succulent. No steaming or par-boiling.

Our peri peri sauce recipe is second to none. It has been passed down three generations and we guarantee that the same original sauce will be passed on to you.

No frills, no fuss, just good food.
O’ Peri Peri – Sempre Portugues (always Portuguese).

What is peri-peri spice?

Peri-peri (“piri piri”, “pili pili” or “african bird’s eye chilli”) is widely grown in Eastern and Southern Africa.

A long time ago, when the Portuguese explorers sailed up to the east coast of Africa on their way to India, they discovered many wonderful things. The most wonderful thing they found was a small, very unique and strong tasting chilli.

The local people, who spoke Swahili, called it Peri Peri. They used Peri Peri as a medicine as well as to enhance the flavour of their food. The Portuguese saw how good Peri Peri was because it tasted so delicious.

They loaded their ships with Peri Peri to introduce it to the rest of the world.

Peri Peri is rich in vitamin A and C, but more importantly it gives new life to your food.
This chilli may be small but it packs some serious heat, not to mention flavour.
It’s considered one of the spiciest chillies measuring in at around 170,000 scoville units.
Peri Peri chilli is the secret to creating our great food.
