Welcome to Kcal, an innovative food and lifestyle company, dedicated to changing the fast food industry as we know it and bringing the world optimal wellness through good, wholesome and healthy food.

Our mission is simple. To make the world a better place through outstanding service and healthy, wholesome, fast, tasty food.

Kcal is all about taking charge of our health and wellness, without compromise on choice, ease, speed and convenience. By making small, sustainable lifestyle changes, we can look great and feel great.

We have an extensive menu, inspired by firm favourites from throughout the world. We don’t sacrifice on taste and quality and use only the freshest ingredients, as close to their whole and natural state as possible.We operate a strict no-fry policy yet every single dish is bursting with rich flavours, tantalising tastes and health-promoting nutrients. Each dish has been carefully created to comprise a perfect combination of energising carbs, complete proteins, healthy fats and essential vitamins and minerals.

As obesity levels reach alarming heights, coupled with increasingly poor eating habits and reduced physical activity, leading to a number of so-called lifestyle diseases such as diabetes and heart disease, never before has there been such a firm call for healthy and wholesome food that optimises wellness and longevity.

If everyone takes a healthier and more balanced approach to life, the benefits to be had are far-reaching. We believe that what you eat determines the quality of your life. Quality in, quality out. The better we look after ourselves, the better we feel.

Launched in 2010, Kcal is the phenomenally successful creation of ambitious entrepreneurs, Mark Carroll and Andreas L. Borgmann.
Building on their passion for healthy and nutritious food that was also quickly delivered, and their 10 years of business experience in the Middle East, Mark and Andreas founded Kcal. Unlike most restaurants, Kcal’s menu is built only on healthy, natural and whole, fresh foods. Each dish comprises the perfect combination of complete proteins, energizing carbs and good for you fats.
