    KyoChon wings were really good. Got the half and half where 10 wings were garlic and 10 wings were spicy. The spicy wings were really good and really spicy. If you can't handle spice, don't get it

    Wings have less breading than other places. The hot and sweet is decently spicy and flavorful while the soy garlic is blander than what I'm used to but somehow go well together. Wedges are a must!

    I was pleasantly surprised. The spicy chicken wings are actually spicy! Whenever I get Korean fried chicken I always get all spicy coz the other favors just taste bland to me. Great dining experience!

    Bonchon or KyoChon? It's Kyochon for me cuz the wings here can be very spicy - just how I like 'em. Bonchon can't reach this level of spiciness. When I want hot wings I want 'em HOT!!!!

    U have to want to go fattening to enjoy here. I went for the grilled chicken and it might as well have been from any deli. Also a side of vegetables means some iceberg… (1 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Hands down better than Bon chon or mad for chicken. The sal sal chicken salad with mango dressing is remarkably good. Cant go wrong with signature wings soy garlic style.

    Food is DELICIOUS! Honey wings are amazing! Splurge on the Strawberry Soju Cocktail - can't be missed. Plus they play KPOP videos on large TV screens!

    Try all the wings. Sweet and got are spicy, possibly too spicy for most but sooooo good. They'll warn you. Listen to them and order them anyway.

    the Garlic Soy Sauce wings were awesome. I don't know if its for just that kind or all but if you get "hot sauce on the side" BEWARE! For spice heads only. Flavorfull tho.

    No matter how much spice you think you can handle, the spicy wings WILL be painful! Try the garlic/soy wings.

    Nowhere near as good (or as cool) as BonChon Chicken, but a decent alternative if it's too crowded or the wait time is too long. This place is good for groups, there is a ton of seating upstairs!

    While Bonchon soy garlic fries chicken wings is better than KyoChon's, I would choose KyoChon's grilled soy garlic wings anytime! I would go back for this...

    The wait was not long at all. The honey fried wings were awesome, very crispy. I'd recommend it. And yes the mens room did have digital displays of peoples eyes staring at u at the urinal...creepy

    Got the grilled chicken salad which had quality ingredients & very tasty dressing, but amounted to a $11 appetizer for me. Grabbed cart food afterwards. Throw a piece of bread on the side or something

    Bon Chon Chicken competitor here! I would say Kyo Chon is equal in terms of quality, with a variety of different flavors to differentiate themselves.

    The Korean fried chicken wings can carry a spicy kick. Be prepared to wait a little--these wings take time.

    Wow, this place is way better than BonChon! More flavorful and spicier. One big con: the service is lousy and the wait is a bit longer (than BonChon). Anyways, it's the food that counts, right? :)

    Rating: 3 Nice spicy sauce with a good kick. The wings were a little smalleaning there was not a lot of meat. Maybe not amazing for the price. Good for casual pickup of chicken.

    Wings were very crispy and tender. I enjoyed the spicy wings (WARNING: Pretty dang spicy) and the garlic wings but overall it was just alright. I still prefer Bon Chon.

    I only waited 6 mins. The Hot and Spicy wings are so tasty..but my tongue is burning. True, one of the wings was small. Love the garlic dipping sauce. They give you a wet nap and a plastic glove!

    When you go in there is no one to tell you that upstairs is different to downstairs. If you want to sit go up for service at the table. If you want to stand order at the counter downstairs.

    It's fine, but that's unfortunately all that it is. Pricey for the small portion as we'll and my sweet potatoes wedges we're soggy. Chicken on the other hand was deliciously crispy and flavorful.

    Always get the chicken wings. It's double fried goodness. Don't get spicy unless you can seriously handle spice. It's dangerous!

    Went for lunch today. Wings were tiny, overcooked and flavorless. Worse than a typical mediocre NYC wings place. Perhaps got them on a bad day, makes it worse if they are inconsistent for the price.
