McFrys offers fast food, good price and with very ample schedules. Fried roasted chicken and fish fingers are the best for me. Perfect place to mix with the locals.

Went once to the Gigiri branch and its the only time they will see me. Ordered and half chicken and the "cook" took a sad looking piece of cold fired chicken and chucked it in the orange looking boiling oil for another 2 min. When I ate it it was dry as a rock. Go to Galito's its another planet.

I have on more than one occasion experienced rudeness and racism by the staff especially the ones packing the chilli and chips!!! It is clearly stated they need to give us 2 full scoops. Hey don't. When you say anything they have the nerve to tell you go elsewhere. The man giving out the chilli actually snatched it off my... More

The big debate among the locals is whether the fat-fried chicken is better at KenChic INN or at McFrys - I prefer McFrys, maybe because it's a few shillings cheaper, or their fries seem crispier, but the most important thing is to have copious quantities of beer to go with the meal to cut the grease.

Found the range of chips really good, such as poussin, garlic, and pilli pilli chips. Also the paneer chappati is the best i have tried anywhere

If you are a fan of chips, fried chicken and fish and want to do a quick meal, then McFrys is a good deal. There is no formal dining or cutlery. Chips, chicken or any other food is served on plain white papers. There are chilly sauce bottles (which were mineral water bottles. And same goes with vinegar and salt)... More
