With fire as their base ingredient, they continuously push themselves to create new and innovative dishes for the masses. The venture also sells a range of chilli sauces and condiments.

Say “ahoy” to a chilli chicken wing that is guaranteed to leave you sweating with spicy satisfaction.

Take home gourmet chilli sauces, smoked salts and barbecue spice rubs from Banditos’ range, along with branded laser etched kitchenware.
