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

Ordered two of the chicken dishes to takeaway along with a portion of chips, pretty expensive at $53. Tasty food but not really enough to feed a family of four; the portion of chips was only half full and we ended up having to cook...up something else when we got home!More

Nice food and quick service. Dinner with two adult and two kids, didn’t expect much from the surroundings, but was a pleasant surprise. Would come back.

It's a small place but the service is speedy and the food is tasty. If you are going at peak times, it would be safer to book. We had the sweet spicy chicken (full) and a portion of cheesy chicken. Good portions and a fun...meal. love their pickled veg.More

good fried chicken should still be moist, but this one wasn't. maybe they skipped the brining process. they charge an extra $5 for the gluten free option which makes it too over priced for the quality of the food.

Came for lunch intending to have a snack, ended up with a feast! A must visit - and take your appetites, these guys don't stint on the portion sizes. Great selection of cocktails and mocktails too! Parking area was a pleasant plus in a busy...area of ChCh.More

I ordered two portions of take away chicken tender combos this afternoon. On picking up my order, I was taken aback when the restaurant worker informed me I owed $49. I was so surprised at the price, I double checked it was correct. When I...returned home with my meals, we found the chicken and chips to be tasty. The box was however consumed by two large plastic sauce containers and a small one for a side salad which filled alot of the box unnecessarily. The food itself was tasty despite the small portion size. We both enjoyed our meal however felt it was completely overpriced for what is ultimately take away chicken and chips.More

The chicken is delish!! and you won't find the experience anywhere else. Or rather I haven't discovered another place like it. Chilli chicken, cheese chicken and it's crispy, really juicy and deliciously crispy. The downfall.... the price. way too expensive. Hopefully we'll see some healthy...competition in the future with more affordable prices.More
