    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    It's been 25 mins & all we've were our glasses of tap water. The service kinda sucks. Not even a passby to reassure us that the food will be out soon. They need a faster kitchen. I'm starving. Boo!

    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

    Rating:1 It's hard to believe but the chicken here is...awful. From the surly staff to the replayed Justin burner songs this place is just about as unauthentic ally Korean as possible.

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

    Maybe things have changed over time but KyoChon's chicky is better. The ones from BonChon are unfortunately, bland. One good thing is: the portion is bigger!

    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.

    If you have a Living Social deal, you should ask for your money back. They said they are having an iPad malfunction and won't be able to honor them.

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

    Do yourself a favor and go to Boka on St Mark instead. They also serve Bonchon chicken but in a much better quality. Here it's too greasy. Very disappointed.

    The fried mac n cheese triangles are delicious (although not exactly authentic). Get the lunch special.

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

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

    the spicy garlic chicken is the best. it may look like a little bit of food, however it is very filling.

    Best wings in NYC. Get the wings instead of drumsticks if you want more of the crispy skin.
  • Running with S.
    avoid. the chairs are fabric, and dirty. lunch time is the worst. Forgetful if you ask for something, and the food is sub par.

    If you plan on splitting a medium + sides with someone, get the meal specials instead. Cheaper and you get drinks included.
