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.

A handy restaurant adjacent to the Park view Hotel on Riccarton Rd, opposite Hagley Park south in Christchurch. There for late lunch & decided on mustard chicken with radish, spring onion & chips, washed down with Tuatara pale ale. The meal was superb & generous...the...ale l think is an acquired taste. A great menu, reasonably priced & overall a great dining experience...cheers.More

The Church Corner Monster Chicken had the best service I have had in a very long time. I got a great recommendation from the young man who served me and the food was amazing and cost effective. Highly recommend.

I mean the chicken was good but the customer service was whack. They spoke as if the sauce was free but it was 20kr.

I love me some fried chook. Consider myself a bit of a foodie and enjoy trying new places, but this chicken joint is next level and has fab service! I booked a table of 8 on the wrong day, but when we turned up they...slotted us in no worries. Shot guys! The menu was extensive and we were served super quickly. Food was hot, delicious and the crispiest, juiciest fried chicken ever! I had a burger and partner had the garlic bomb (I think that was the name?) Wow!! When I crave fried chicken in future, this is what I will be picturing! Run, don't walk.. get yourself down there to monster chicken. I promise you'll love it!More

Booked a table of 8 for Saturday night only to findnon arrival that I messed up and booked Sunday by mistake. Rookie mistake! These guys were great about it and made room for us regardless. I cannot recommend the Bangin chicken burger enough! Spicy and...sweet and utterly delicious best burger I've ever had. Kumara chips and aioli were a winner too. We will definitely re book this placeMore

First time here and we were pleasantly surprized with this place. The menu has a great selection and was reasonably priced. Good service and plenty of space inside. The food was well cooked and well presented and tasted reaqlly good. Would return again.

What can I say as I sit here and devour last nights monster chicken leftovers.... Being a chicken fiend myself, I like to try out chicken specific restaurants to compare. There IS no comparison in my opinion - the fact it was the juiciest and...crunchiest chicken I have had since moving to Christchurch is an understatement. The fact they use quality chicken thighs instead of dried up chicken breast in their tenders gets top points from me!! Hubby had a chicken burger which he thoroughly enjoyed, and I got to experience my first taste of pickled radishes (hellooooo big fan now nom nom) The service was excellent with very friendly staff, and very quick to serve the food after ordering. If you love chicken as much as I do, do yourself a favour and check this place out, you won't regret it. 5 stars from me and we will definitely be back - cheers guysMore

I had bad experience at Hagley restaurant. I ordered Korean BBQ sauce chicken. It was too much salty. I feel eat just rock of salt. And chicken was over cooked dry. I asked extra hot sauce. They give me more salty hot sauce.( also they...charge $$ for hot sauce I can’t use any!!) So I couldn’t eat all. I decided takeaway and they charge extra $ for takeaway container. I’ve ever go back.More

Great service, really tasty chicken which we all enjoyed but it was expensive for what it was. One meal was 300g of chicken & the others were 200g but really couldn't tell the difference!! Worth a visit for sure but next time we'll go somewhere...with more variety.More
