“The Jam Corner has a great location (very important in a spread out city like Townsville!), very good coffee and food (I have eaten here for both breakfast and lunch) and most importantly, great friendly service for all customers- whether they be regulars or occasional visitors like me. Very welcoming and highly recommended!” – Fussyandhonest, Brisbane


Besides our legendary chicken, the one thing you’ll always find at Nando’s is a warm welcome that’ll make you feel right at home. And that’s not just because of our PERi-PERi!


Each one of our restaurants has its own special design, but they all have earthy textures and colours that remind us of our sunny Afro-Portuguese roots and many feature original South African art and unique design touches. Cool Afro-Luso beats and friendly service add to the vibe, and then there’s the piece-de- resistance – our flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken that’s served on beautiful crockery.


It makes for a sizzling experience and we can’t wait for you to join our table. Because if there’s one thing we love just as much as PERi-PERi, it’s big, happy gatherings!

Come in and experience Townsville’s best

 Our very very brief history so far…

Almost everyone craves a burger now and then, but too often I felt compelled to abstain. I’d complain to friends that I could rarely find a burger that didn’t make me feel heavy & bloated. Most agreed and eventually a good friend (sick of my whining) told me to put up or shut up. It was in that pub that the idea of Grill’d was born.

I decided that our restaurants would only use the finest freshest ingredients, have the friendliest staff and the most delicious, healthy burgers. After thousands of hours of hard work and heaps of help from friends & family we finally made it.

Thank you for your support. 



    Seasoned is the newest restaurant on Palmer street and is the perfect setting to spoil yourself with great food, wine and service.

    Select a wine from the cellar – one of the largest in Townsville – and pair it with an entree like lightly smoked ocean trout with beetroot, vanilla croutons, goats cheese, pistachio and wasabi vinaigrette. 

    For something bigger, you might opt for wagyu strip loin with asparagus, chickpea fritters, red wine jus and bearnaise sauce, or perhaps sovereign lamb rack with basil pea puree, artichoke, potato and olive gnocchi and fava beans.

    Open for breakfast – continental buffet and alacarte, lunch and dinner. The Sugatrain lounge bar and café offers a wide range of dining options and a bar open til late.

    “We stayed in Palmer Street for 5 nights and ate at this restaurant 3 nights. We loved the meals we chose on the first night so went back and had them again and we were not disappointed. The Jazz Trio playing one night were wonderful too. Service varied depending on staff but all in all it was good.” Sandayday, Port Stephens
