Piri Piri Corner, which has another outlet in Stapleton, launched its second shop in Clifton Triangle.
The official VIP launch was conducted by professional boxer Glenn Catley, former world champion in the super middleweight division, who cut the ceremonial ribbon.
Shop owners Janad Raja and Shabir Hussain said they were thrilled to be investing in these difficult economic times.
They are planning to open more stores in the coming year.
Ms Raja said: "We are a family business that has spent £120,000 on the building and the restaurant and are delighted to be investing in Bristol, while so many other businesses are closing down.
"Our first chain has been a huge success and we are therefore looking to build upon this achievement by launching a new venue every six months around Bristol and Bath."
Piri Piri Corner specialises in authentic Portuguese chilli cuisine.
