The popcorn chicken had mostly batter and there were three times the fries which we all know are much cheaper for KFC. The chicken was also dry and hard. The food was cold as well. No one smiled or said thank you or have a nice day. Corporate needs to know about this. DO NOT GO THERE!

We went here for lunch to compare it to Australia KFC. First big thing we noticed was no chips 😯. The potato and gravy was different but nice. The chicken was much bigger in size and not as oily. Pricy for what it was. This all in all was not bad different but not bad.

Do not go here, I got food poisoning from the food. The place is dirty and actually smelt of sick when we went downstairs to eat. No idea why I decided to eat the food.

This place is clean and has my approval to return for repeat visits. Only gripe is the food not very warm during off mealtimes.

That restaurant is placed at the train station downstaires. Don't go based at the address. Good alternative to taste the KFC style of cooking

Chicken strips are not consistently sized. They are always crispy, but you don't always get your money's worth. They are also a little pricey, 9 bucks for six... Should only be a buck a piece since some are much smaller then others.

My better half loves kfc and another chicken outlet, but since there are so many more kfc's around, they get the bulk of the business. Make no bones about it, kfc is great chicken with all the trimmings, especially the Cole slaw.

Thank JP J
