The chicken is a little on the greasy side. They don't use all white meat chicken here in China so if you're a fan of dark meat then you'll love it. Didn't eat KFC very much in the states but its nice to have something familiar here in Yantai.

Nice and clean, better than the local stores. Gets very crowded during rush hours. See if you can avoid rush hours.

I hate at KFC several times in the two months I stayed in Yantai. Generally speaking, KFC is better in Asia than it is in the states -- I don't know why, and it is better in Chiang Mai, Thailand, than it is in Yantai. There are a few menu changes, but almost all KFC's have English language photo menus... More

I have visited more than 10 cities in China recently and during my stay I was used to go to KFC, McDonald and DICO's. My final conclusion is that DICO's is better than others with quality and standard of food, taste as well as the most important higyenically cleaner than others, also they have suitable menu and prices.

Some westerners wanting a taste of home may feel disappointed with the Chinese version of KFC. The burgers are usually spicy and loaded with fat, while the chips are often poorly cooked and served cold. Overcrowding is also a concern as some places in Yantai have little other competition with fast food. Oh for a Burger King or Carl's Junior... More

I may not be the right person to review KFC because even though I am American, I do not like to eat fried chicken! I don't think we were designed to digest any foods that have been soaking up grease for five minutes. Anyhow, I did have a spicy chicken sandwich that was quite tasty (after I squished the grease...

Considering their love of chicken you'd hope that KFC would be good in China. You'd be wrong - the service is typically poor, often with long queuing times and people pushing and shoving. The food itself is expensive and usually disappointing, not very tasty but by Chinese standards is probably OK.

Best try Dicos if you're looking for chicken - in KFC they tend to use mostly the dark meat of the chicken while in Dicos you breast. No competition for me personally!
