    The fried chicken and food is great but what's really crazy is the price. We got small order of wings, bibimbob, kimchi fries, and bottle of soju for under $50! The portion for Kimchi fries is a lot!

    Wingssss! Drumsticks take a little longer to fry (20-25) than wings (10-15). $4 beers all day, every day! Taryn them half soy, half spicy (which are pretty spicy)

    ridiculously cheap drinks & wings to die for (twice fried). after 5p this place is bumpin' - loud music & crowd, bouncer, and lots of drinks flowin. Korean tacos are super spicy & delish!

    Delicious fried chicken at reasonable prices. The pickled radish is also good. Be aware of the spicy chicken, though. It will make you cry.

    Their double fried wings are better than most barroom wings. Stay late on a Sunday and the waitress will comp some fruity cucumber/strawberry drink. They play the oddest compilation of music, though.

    $2 Coors Lights , seasoned fires with soy garlic chicken are great!! They need bigger television screens! - & the atmosphere does not compare to the 34st one ~

    My first time ordering potstickers, I received their soy sauce in containers for free. Second time picking up from seamless they gave me 6 instead of 5 but no free soy sauce (gave packets only)

    The "hot" option on the chicken can be very hot. Even my spice-loving Korean girlfriend was taken aback. Make sure to pair the spicy chicken with some white rice.

    Get the half & half fried chicken combo. So delicious. But the spiciness can build up & get overwhelming. Beer will fix that tho

    Always a great meal here. Soon du boo is one of my favorites to have on a chilly day. The fried chicken is a yummy addition too.

    Great happy hour specials but drinks are always cheap. Avoid the suits and come after when they head for the LIRR!

    The chicken takes 30 min to make. Make sure you order that right away and have other food/drinks be brought up while waiting.

    This location is much better than the nearby Chamber Street one, which has become slightly worse from wear. This one has tables, full bar and karaoke Friday and Saturday nights

    The perfect Friday night snack food: Mixed spicy chicken with fries. If you live in FiDi they deliver within 20 minutes.

    Waited 30 mins for my small takeout of 8 wings, ridiculously long and staff aren't too friendly. Also not a fan of the dark badly-lit interior. But the WINGS-SO DELICIOUS, lives up to the hype indeed!

    Chicken is good but if you get home delivery you should reconsider. We waited for an hour and a half to get our food. Of course it was cold and soggy. This is not the first time this had happened.

  • Alex K.
    Don't know what these reviewers are smoking but this place is awful. I got wings and french fries and all of it was inedible. Small over-deep-fried wings with no meat and over-soiled nasty fries.
