Home of great tasting meals. A fusion of cultures. The coming together of our Rainbow Nation.
We sell Fries, Burgers, Pizza’s, Toasted Sandwiches, Rolls.
We are the home where legendary meals such as the “AK Special” and “Wonder Why”
have been born.
Akhalwaya’s style of food started in the 1950s in Fordsburg. It was a melting pot of cultures, American, British, European, Malay, Indian and African. Culture affects everything: our ideas, dress, food, etc. In this fusion of cultures, stores such as Zulfikars, Minty’s, Pinkys and Akhalwaya’s were born and thrived. These stores were frequented by patrons from across a wide spectrum of cultures. The food offering was Western food and an Indian flavor.
In February of 1990, we opened Akhalwaya’s Dial A Meal in Mayfair on Church Street. Here we made Fast Food in the same style and taste of the 1950s. Our menu offering was the traditional fish and chips, burgers, sandwiches and curries. In 1995 we moved to bigger premises and introduced our unique pizza’s from a traditional clay oven.
Today we have rebranded ourselves and have begun franchising so that we are more accessible to the entire country and hopefully the whole world. Offering the same food, taste, and quality you have associated with us across all stores.
