Chicken is chicken...you would think, but not with Afros! It is simple, just a few things on the menu, but each done to perfection. They do just chicken and they do it well. Wraps, strips, burgers and chips. The portions are generous and prices great.

I absolutely love Afros. We use 3 branches. You have to have 50 50 sauce which is half lemon and half chilli. Then half chips or tjips as they call it and half gold slaw. My favourite take or place. Bev Moore

The menu is simple. The food is amazingly delicious. There is an option of hot or koel. I recommend hot as it is so good and not crazy hot. The chicken strips are so soft and tender it leaves me in awe everytime I eat...More

I visited Afros twice in 1 weekend. The first on the beach front for an awesome greasy breakfast bun! The coffee was legit too! The second for lunch near Gateway. The chicken was incredibly seasoned and the coleslaw fresh and crispy. The value for money...More

Afros menu is simple, but the food is tasty and delicious. Their chips are hand cut and are possibly the best in Durban - a reason on their own to visit. The setting is clean with plenty safe parking and the view of the Durban...More

We had the misfortune of buying takeaways at Kings Park rugby stadium before the game. What a mistake! The food was an absolute disgrace. I think even my dog would turn her nose up at this offering! Poorly cooked and very poor quality. Never again!

Not really a dedicated kids menu, and their menu is limited to chicken strips and chips and chicken burgers and chips or slaw - for kids I would suggest strips and chips.

Afro’s started in a trailer at “Durban Day”, Peoples Park in September 2012. That was the first of two trailers that travelled durbs for two years, pulling up at the finest markets, events, shindigs & private jols. In 2014 we moved into our first shop on South Beach, serving surfers, cyclists, power walkers & anyone who agrees it’s “lekker by die see!” We’ve moved into a 9 locations since then. and we’ll keep moving.
