Not so great fried chicken

The fried chicken here are alright. We tried the soy garlic as well as the hot one. I feel the fried chickens were not fresh. Our fried chickens were rather cold, and not warm or freshly fried. The hot chicken wings were really spicy, I much prefer the flavours of the soya garlic one. 
We also tried the kimchi soup. It was pretty good. It reminded me of the authentic kimchi soup that I have had in the States. I will come back here for the kimchi sou

- gross. b/c we ordered rice and they used the bowl to actually scoop from rice cooker. obviously can see from the bowl itself once it served. me and my wife were laughing at it.
- staff were trying to avoid people ordering but when they see all have ordered already, they started to talk to each other doing nothing
- we used to love this place becoz of chocken but next time--I dont think so. you have to order from cashier unlike before

Really bad

The outlook of the restaurant looks good and thus decided to give it a try.
I ordered a chicken set (2 drums + 4 wings) and 1 okonomiyaki.

1) The chicken tasted really normal actually. It wasn't near warm. But it was at least platable.
2) I was served a burnt okonomiyaki!!!! What's more, it looked really plain and lack of ingredients other than a pancake of flour. Thus, I asked for a new one
3) The next moment, the exact okonomiyaki that was rejected by me, was actually served to the table beside me! However, the customers did not complain probably because they are tourists.
4) I decided to cancel the okonomiyaki after waiting for 20 minutes just for a new one. Upon deciding to end my meal, I realised that the metal can (where the utensils and tissues are placed inside) is very rusty in the inside. Even my tissue was stained with the rust.

Definitely will not go back to the restaurant again. Don't bother trying.

It's was the most terrfying experience dining there. Was there at 8 for dinner.
 The staff left a sarcastic when we decided to order the size of 6 chicken for a group of 4. Next up, they serve hot warm which we ordered hot green tea. My friend & I ordered the same foods but only one was served as the staff only ordered one for us.
 In general, the foods is below average for a restaurant standard.

Located near the taxi-stand entrance of Bugis+, this place is fighting for attention with many other restaurants in the same area. There's Yayoiken (http://mediumrareandothers.blogspot.com/2014/09/yayoiken-somerset.html) just opposite, and the more expensive Ma Maison on the other side. But it had its own specialty that attracted people- their chicken.

The place was slightly under-staffed but we could see that the solo server was trying his best. Kudos to that. As for the food, apparently they've a few branches in many other countries, so they must be good at what they're doing right?

Not so... after having tried their chicken wings. We thought Four Fingers were better. 

Drumsticks 3pcs- Small ($7.90)Seafood Pancake ($12.90)Wings 8pcs- Medium ($9.90)

I'd give credits to their crispy skins, but that's it. Their drumsticks and wings were not marinated on the inside, and became boring after we moved on to the third piece of wing. Their Seafood Pancake is average as well. Their squid was particularly hard to chew.

I'd not come back again for their wings, after all there's many more of such Korean-styled wings in Singapore for us to try! 

------------------   Verdict: Food: 2.5/5 Service: 2.5/5 Ambiance: 2.5/5  Total Score: 1/5[1- Never visit again, 2-Won't visit unless there's no other option, 3-Perhaps, 4 & 5- Yes!]  Good for? Casual dining

What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
