Bought a roast chicken from their Lanyon Market Place shop front after been to Woolworths shopping. Woolworths had 10 or more freshly roasted chickens available at that time but I thought I support the smaller guys so I went there bought a roast chicken. It's not because they were 10cents cheaper then Woolworths. Got home put the chicken on table.... More

I have never had a bad experience with Kingsleys. They are best known for their chips and gravy so delicious and moreish. Friendly staff as well. Always hot and fresh.

It is what it is. Great chips, burgers have increasingly smaller pieces of chicken breast on them every time I go! Give it a year and you'll need a magnifying glass to find the chicken. Much better than KFC (IMHO)

This is tasty fat food. You cant get into the pub but you have your licence but cant cook, so you go to Kingsley's.

This place is great. Cooked fresh and they have given me several times while waiting free food. Price is good. Friendly staff with good parking. Croquettes are my favorite. God knows what's inside.

Kingsley's chicken is like god-sent for Canberrans, so I will tread my words carefully. As for me, Kingsley is a place for I-can't-be-bothered-to-cook type of food or let's-get-fat type of cuisine. Food is oily, chicken thigh was chopped into half so that the other half can be sold as another chicken thigh. Soggy chips, tasteless gravy (charged) and ridiculous deal.... More

Great chicken and chips, with a Southern influence. I was not that hungry and I was able to order one chicken fillet, chips and a croquet. Just hit the spot without costing the earth. We ate in, whereas the majority of the patrons ordered takeaway.
