Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Chicken had no KFC taste. Size of chicken was shockingly small. I was told by duty manager, that the new Indian owners have drastically cut costs on goods. Won't go to KFC again. Shocking. The original KFC taste has gone. On Reading below it states...consequence on fraud. What about Taupo KFC and the Indian owners ??More

SHOCKING. Drive-thru was CHOKKA and the people waiting to be served (including us) in store was CHOKKA and there were just three people working. They were under the pump and we felt sorry for them. Ended up leaving without purchasing dinner

Long wait, forgot one of our snack boxes and no drinks. Service was indifferent, no apology or even mention of the ten minute plus wait. Add to that that we payed for a bunch of stuff we didn't get and it was a bad experience...all up.More

Of all the kfcs Ive been to, this was by far the most dirty. When we walked in to look for a seat, we found two booths a long table and smaller tables had rubbish on top, chairs and floor. It looked like it hadnt...been cleaned the whole day, as we walked in for dinner. They were all empty but looked real bad. It comes down to management, noone seemed to care about the cleaning side. We had to ask for broom, table wipes and sprays because we waited for someone to come and we seemed to be ignored. We had a group of 14 of us. After we cleaned, one young lad finally came to help clean but it was already done. I have never cleaned mess inside a restaurant before. Not communication from supervisor or manager. So yeah sorry had to give the feedback.More

Cashier was dissapointing, he walked around aimlessly and seemed to have no idea what he was doing. They couldn't work the cash register and took the entire IT team to fix it. We waited 1 hour to get served 2 pieces of greasy chicken that...tasted worse than a cow mashed in with salted rocks. I certainly didn't feel welcome here and was appalled at the state of service. Disgusting.More

Went into kfc Taupo to eat in store and it was Shocked at how absolutely gross and filthy it was. There was grease on the floors, cops and rubbish under every single table , food all over the tables and seats we had to ask...for a table to be cleaned , took them 10 mins to come out and clean the table , the staff was slow and rude. And after they wiped down a table we realised their cloths had facial hair and food on it , and all they did was smudge this all over the table we asked to see the manager and a untidy cigarette smelling woman came out, I told her the place was a mess she very sharply said she’ll get her staff to clean up. Upon leaving we saw the manager sitting within plain view of customers smoking with 2 other employees Disgusting placeMore

Went in for order and the place was totally disgusting!!! filthy, no service, the drive through was being served - so filthy we left, because if it looked like that inside, can you imagine what it looked like in the kitchen area!!!! totally disgusting. Where...are the managers of this place? are they not contactable? I have two videos taken at 16h20 showing how disgusting this place looked. We went to Burger Fuel next door and had a fabulous burger and drinks in a nice clean facility. For Taupo - KFC was a shame. In these times they should be top notch.More
