“A good place to get your cholesterol”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

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

“A simple but good fast food outlet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

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) on the tables.
You pay at the counter, go to the serving area, they take your receipt, give you your food (if it is take away they will pack it in a paper bag alongside small sachets of vinegar, salt and chilly sauce) and you pick your spot to sit and dig in to your food.
Compared to other fast foods in nbi, I like these guys cause their chips are well cooked (if you want it crispy and dry make sure you tell them when they take your order slip).
All in all a simple but good outlet for those who want a meal on the quicker side. Of course being a fast food they are much cheaper and the portions are not too bad either.

“Best Fast Food Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

I rarely eat junk food, but once in a while I give in to my cravings. McFrys is a regular fish and chips joint and the reason I would not go anywhere else is because they are clean, the food is made right there and then (no re-fries), and the price is soooo reasonable. They are open until late and so if you are a person that enjoys going out at night and feel like a quick meal before heading home then this is your place. I normally go to the one in Parklands and the new one in Gigiri. Their fries are yummy and so are the sausages and chicken. You can't go wrong with McFrys!!!!
