Order from here frequently, food always tastes amazing. Sometimes a little wait for the food but it’s worth it! Very friendly staff. I would go as far as saying it’s the best chicken in canterbury.😋😋👍

Still brilliant, juicy & flavourful chicken & the best rice & peas, highly recommend. There’s reason they’re so busy. Lovely staff too.

I'll be seeking out Smokeys for my last meal if we get warning of armageddon, judgement day or any more lockdown mind control nonsense. In the meantime and for winter, their chicken stew is my new favourite. Food is consistently good. Servers are consistently friendly....Thank you!More

Popped in after visiting the cathedral, I had a 1/2 chicken with chips and coleslaw in hot sauce. Really gorgeous meal, the chips were spot on, lovely home made coleslaw and great quality chicken. The hot sauce could have been a bit spicier, I’d definitely...have the extra hot next time. My wife had the stew chicken which was devine!More

I am unsure, but don't think so. The only meat they serve is chicken but don't know how it's prepared. All I know is it's great quality meat, not fat at all 😊

I don't believe they take bookings, its not that type of a place. It looks like a take-away inside. Though they might have tables elsewhere. I'd Recommend giving them a call to find out. 01227 769027
