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

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.

Worse dining experience

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.
8 pcs Wings

Not one of the best Korean Chicken Wings

For more photos and reviews, click here: http://mediumrareandothers.blogspot.com/2014/09/bon-chon-bugis-illuma.html

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

Terrible service and reject feedback

I was there with my friend for lunch, not many people around the shop.
In fact, we were the only ones around except for a family who was already eating. After taking our orders, more people started coming in but for some strange reason, after 30mins of waiting, the later-comers were getting their food and drinks and we weren't even served the lemon teas we ordered.
Upon checking with the staff, turns out they did not even locked down our order! The person who took down our order even replied that he DID NOT know who took our order when asked by his supervisor. WOW.

We left, of course and I posted on their fb page to feedback about their poor service. And of course, the post was taken down.

Super annoyed by their poor service and horrified by the way they handled feedback.

DEFINITELY will not go back.
