    Yes their wings are delicious but not as spicy as I would like my wings to be. If you love super spicy wings like me, try next door KyoChon. If you dont care for the heat, this place is amazing for u

    Happy tummy leaves this place always! Their mac and cheese wedges are awesome. Some of the best dumplings ive had & their fried chicken is really good too.

    Main floor is for a quick bite. Upstairs dine in. Combo #1 spicy with sweet potato fries. Boy was it spicy!!! Love the garlic and mustard sauce.

    The fried mac & cheese sounds very strange but get it. When it arrives, you'll wonder why anyone would serve a cheese dipping sauce with fried mac & cheese, but just go with it - it's delicious

    While a bit more expensive than "normal" wings, they are worth it. I suggest getting the mixed box and unless you like it REALLY HOT, skip the hot/spicy sauce. Quick service and totally addictive.

    Say what you will about the glut of Korean fried chicken in this 'hood, Bonchon's larger portions & thoughtful restraint w/chili flakes give all the crunch & flavor with none of the mouth-melting burn

    Order the mixed chicken. Definitely go with spicy if you can handle it. Regular wings were a tad on the sweet side. Didn't really live up to the hype but still very delicious

    Get a half/half order of wings & spicy potstickers. But beware if you're going for a late-night snack - they're open til 4 but often close the kitchen much earlier. Hello, I'm not here for the beer.

    These wings are so addictive, we sometimes order a second box once we've finished the first. Are we proud of this fact? Most definitely. Read more

    Whoa, this Korean chain has over 100 locations internationally. And after sampling the spicy soy garlic wings, we think it could use a few more. Read more

    Korean style chicken that hits the spot. Good for large groups but expect some waiting. Music video and sports on multi screens.

    Fried chicken wings (split between garlic and hot), potstickers, and a pitcher of Kirin beer. Yum!

    Korean fried chicken at its finest, make sure to try the sweet soy-garlic sauce or spicy chili glaze!

    Best wings in NYC. Get the wings instead of drumsticks if you want more of the crispy skin.

    Korean fried chicken is crispier and more flavorful than your average KFC. But really, it's actually amazing.

    Hands down the best fried chicken I've ever had. Try the rib eye wraps with the spicy mayo. Delicious!

    I liked this place more than the Korean Fried Chicken joints in LA, but the quality here came down a bit after switching to owners/management. Still worth checking out. Gets very noisy.

    Personally, we prefer Bon Chon to Kyochon. The cluckers here are more reasonably priced and better-seasoned than Kyochon's, and go for under ten bucks a person, depending on your appetite.

    15$ for 10 strips. They're not that good. I wish you could order less than 10. Make portions smaller!

    Expensive as hell... But wow, so good. White meat or drums sticks are the best bet. Way better than the midtown east location.

    All Korean fried chicken places take 15-30 mins to fry the chicken so best to call inane order ahead if you're pressed for time.

    The new location makes it seem more of a bar than hidden cool lounge of past. But the chicken is still fantastic!
