Decided on KFC, when we arrived at the restaurant there were 3 other people, a couple with a very small baby was waiting for their meal.

I have been in here several times lately and I have found it is alot quicker to use the drive through. You can stand at the counter for several minutes waiting to be served then another long wait until you get your order. They appear to be so busy they can't take time to even make eye contact

Like every other KFC really,I do like the mashed potatoes with gravy that we don't get in the uk.My other comment would be that I have been in three in NZ and they are all slow,you get what you expect but fast food it isn't.
