The worst chicken I have ever tasted. The meat was brown for starters so not even sure it was chicken, it was so oily I took one bite and that did it for me. Not tasty at all. The crinkled fries were dry I think they had been sitting in the heater for too long. The service wasn't too bad... More

Typical hot chicken takeaway restaurant with facilities to dine in as well. Portions are rather small but very tasty. The prices are a bit on the high side but the taste soon covers that issue. This is a place I go to when I'm home alone and two lazy to cook.

We haven't had take away from this place in about fifteen years. It's still the same old Kingsley's: friendly staff, delicious chicken and chips. Can't complain!

Consistent, fresh, crunchy, salty. It's fast food at its very best. What's not to like?! The chips are excellent, the fried chicken is always good. For the occasional treat, we love it.

When they say awesome chips they are right. The food at Kingsley's is reliable and of a good standard. My particular favourite is chips and the gravy - salty, salty goodness!

Whilst the food was ok (which is pretty much the case for all fast food places), the customer service at Kingsley's was much nicer than you'd tend to experience at other fast food outlets. Whilst admittedly the food took a while, the person servicing was quite friendly- also a mention to the awesome manager Steve (we think... sorry if we... More

The wait wasn't too long, the people were nice and the food was good. Very yummy chips. Similar to KFC, but the menu is updated far less and the food is less fatty.

Just like KFC but a little nicer and less fatty. Southern Fry chicken and burgers are the best!! Chips are good too. Service is quick and correct. I always get what I order.

I crave for Kingsley's chicken once a week. Their southern fried chicken is not as oily as the KFC chicken and it is crispier. The marinate is also tastier. They use McCaine's chips (so I heard) which is quite nice when eaten hot with their own gravy (which I am sure is full of chicken oil, fat and calories). It's... More
