Nando’s fans in Norwich will be disappointed today as both restaurants in the city are currently closed.
The Red Lion Street and Riverside branches of the popular chicken chain each had signs on their doors to inform customers of their closure.
A staff member said they were currently closed due to staffing issues, although the shortage of chicken was also a factor.
They hoped to open later at half capacity.
Nando’s announced this morning that 45 of its restaurants were to close, affecting outlets in England, Scotland and Wales.
A Nando's spokeswoman said: "The UK food industry has been experiencing disruption across its supply chain in recent weeks due to staff shortages and a number of our restaurants have been impacted.
"However, since Monday, a team of our brilliant Nandocas have been supporting our key suppliers onsite - working in partnership to help get things moving again, and this has already had a positive impact on affected restaurants."
