The Ogalo story started with an idea to provide Australians with a home style taste that gave every meal its own character - without compromising on our delicious and healthy quality. The Portuguese are renowned for their wholesome style of barbequing marinated chickens on a healthy grill, cooking in the natural flavours without the fat and creating a tasty meal that the whole family can enjoy.
The Portuguese explorers who preceded the colonisation of Africa were introduced to the African bird eye chili and thus began the culinary journey to mainland Europe. This is where the so-called 'Piri-Piri’ chilli sauce concept was combined with local Portuguese vegetables, fresh grown herbs and our traditional lemon garlic fusion. The combination of the African style chilli and the traditional European flavours have been unified to represent a premium style of Portuguese chicken.
Ogalo is a leading Casual Dining Restaurant in Sydney providing customers with a culinary experience like no other. With our enticing special recipe and appealing superior taste alongside our reputable customer service (with table service at all non food court style restaurants) we are able to appeal to our customers ever-evolving needs and preferences to ensure our Brand continues to grow and penetrate the marketplace.
At Ogalo, we are part of the new 'taste evolution' creating our own timeless, all inspired basting sauce combining fresh chilli, garden herbs and exotic spices that tantalize taste buds and draw out the natural goodness of our chickens and burgers. If you like it hot, then have a lot, if not just a little... We will make it just how you like it. We only use premium quality produce and we take time in freshly cutting and marinating our chickens; yes, that's right, every chicken and every fillet of our famous Ogalo burgers.
So who is behind Ogalo? Ogalo started as a family business and has since grown into a chain of outlets that are owned and managed by other operators who are ever faithful to the founding vision. We are a young and enthusiastic bunch of people with a fresh, enterprising approach to delivering tasty, fresh food in the local community.
Ogalo, in particular, provides itself on only approving 'Owner-Operator' style restaurants to become a part of our Ogalo Franchisee Family. We want to ensure that every store has a supreme level of customer service to ensure our customer needs always come first. Without a growing customer fan base, we would not be where we are today. We love to sell amazingly tasting the food and ensure our store owners also share our passion and motivation in offering our customer a superior product with a SMILE AT ALL TIMES!
Ogalo represents a vision in quality convenience food - We are a part of the new Casual Dining revolution that has been taking Australia by storm. We pride ourselves on preparing high-quality food, customised to your liking and all prepared fresh while you wait. Our secret to our success is consistency. Our secret recipe for our marinated chicken has been since 1988 and not changed since we served our very first customer.
