Another restaurant will be opening at Halifax’s Broad Street Plaza on Wednesday.

Nando’s, which describes itself as home of Portuguese flame-grilled peri-peri chicken, will bring with it 30 new jobs.

The restaurant will have space for up to 100 customers at one sitting.

Regional managing director Gordon Adams said: “We have been looking for a site in Halifax for years, so we’re very excited to open our doors to the public!”

Several eateries have already opened in the Plaza, including Frankie and Benny’s, Harvester and TGI Friday’s, as well as Pure Gym. Still to come are Pizza Express, J. D. Wetherspoon’s and Chinese Buffet, the 100-bed Premier Inn and a related Beefeater Restaurant.

But everyone is waiting for the multi-screen Vue Cinema and the 400-space car park to open, though dates have still to be announced. A spokeswoman for the development said in July the cinema was likely to open in mid-October.

Calderdale Council has dropped plans for a customer service office but NHS Calderdale still wants space to replace the nearby Laura Mitchell Clinic.
