Original crispy was ok but the rest of the menu are great! I want to give 4.5/5 because of orginial crispy was just average. I think the price is decent for the portion you get. 1 crispy chicken dish is enough for 2 average people

We are around the vicinity looking for places for our dinner. Reading the reviews are pretty good so we give it a try. The chicken are delicious and the serving is pretty generous. Service was good too.

Their Teri Karage (i think that is how it was spelt) is the best!!! Best Chicken around, a bit hard to find the first time but I always get some when I'm on the area.
