Went Sunday for dinner had the BBQ wings which were fine but service was slow and it wasn't full maybe just short staffed and no finger bowl given if eating wings by hand. Ordered buttermilk chicken and red cabbage salad, not my experience of buttermilk chicken in other restaurants very bland and salad consisted of an entire plate of croutons! No red cabbage just spinach and red onion, took ages to get waiters attention so was too late to order anything else. Overall disappointed will not be returning.

positive: nice atmosphere, nice staff, tiger beer
negative: quality of the chicken food was far away from what I imagine in a special chicken restaurant
and I can not understand, why a family or a group of five persons have to pay 10% additional to the prices in the menu! It's less work than five individuals came in, eat and drink!

This place was a pleasant surprise as we stumbled across it when we were both hangry and tired. I loved the interior, really laid back and casual atmosphere with good music and sound staff.
The food was delicious and the chicken was amazing quality. Great homemade lemonade and the croquettes were gorgeous!
Would recommend this place as a casual dinner or lunch venue for great food and chilled vibes

I suppose a vegetarian going to a "chicken hut" was never going to end well but it's the first place in months I've been that showed such a poor selection. A bland and overpriced salad is the only option unless you fancy ordering all of the sides or nibbles . If it had been tasty I wouldn't mind but flavourless, dry halloumi and €4 for four tiny croquettes; madness. There's hundred of ways they could incorporate their "wings" and "fried chicken" philosophy with a veggie twist. A little creativity wouldn't go astray.Roll your eyes at the picky veggie but even the chicken chicks with me were not overly impressed. €4 for tiny sides blew our minds and dried chicken that was left behind. The atmosphere was nice if I were to find a positive...

Yummy chicken sandwich offered with choice of toppings. So good. Went for lunch, sat by the window people watching. Craft beer available. Free wi-fi. Sister of Joburger, but the atmosphere is nicer. Bartender that took order for lunch very nice and personable. You will need to walk off this lunch. Burger comes with shrimp chips. Delish!
