Funky, delicious food, service a bit casual (needed to flag down staff for everything) , and plenty to keep a 15 year old occupied while the grown ups chatted. I do think chips should be included!

Cool place, there’s a street wear shop, not many tables.
Sandwiches are just ok.

I have to admit I thought it was an Indian Restaurant but was pleasantly surprised to find out that it was a fried chicken joint

Above and beyond. Nick served us, brought our food out and checked on us to make sure we were having a great time. Wonderful chat with Nick and Simon after we had eaten and drunk our body weight in food and whiskey. Fantastic night and service!!

I’m quite surprised that my booking for the 26th was accepted despite the restaurant being CLOSED on a public holiday.
Best part of the experience was receiving an email saying I was ‘checked in’ and now being asked to ‘review’ a restaurant that I didn’t dine at.

The food was great and the staff were super friendly. We sat outside as it was pretty loud inside and I think you’d struggle to have a conversation.

We were asked to sit outside (it was raining) and that they would come take out order in a minute. We sat out there for 20 minutes and nobody came. We went online and booked a table for 5 minutes later straight away and when we went back inside the person who seated us outside realised he forgot about us, didn’t say sorry just said, oh you can sit here now gesturing to a dirty table. Thanks.
After that everything was fine, the food was good and fast.

The food is as good as always, but the place and the service has lost quality. The tables were dirty and sticky, the menus confusing and mediocre. The staff didn't know anything about the specials.

Has changed for the worse unfortunately as I was a massive fan, Only one beer for sale (young Henry’s?) , no slaw with burgers (extra$Now ) , music isn’t the same hiphop but watered down pop rnb. No sneakers in the window which is the whole attraction to the place, nothing special anymore unfortunately . Bring back The hip hop sneaker place with Japanese beers and beats please....

All I can say is that I’ll be coming back!

Undeniably delicious fried chicken that kicks you straight to heaven.

Friendly, attentive, good-looking staff that serves an awesome grub without draining your pockets.

Worth recommending!

Underwhelming and disappointing. We got the butter box and the OG chicken sandwich. The chicken, although tender, was too salty. The pickled cucumber didn't help. Wouldn't recommend.

Food was delicious and great value. Cocktails were overly sweet and tasted like sugar water... could probably do with a tone down.
Service was a little slow to begin with but once we ordered the food came out quickly and was super tasty.
Music was a little loud but fun.
Overall great!
