The chicken was so delicious. its crisp and cruncy on the outside, but tender and moist on the inside. it taste so good, and my 6 year old daughter also love it very much. Located in the middle of Hongdae vibrant area, this is the...best place for you to hangout with your friends, and talking over chicken and soju.More

We were wondering around the Hongik University area looking for a place for late dinner and chanced upon Noonaholdak. This outlet is like a Korean version of a fast food restaurant, very popular with young people, playing very loud music with TV screens showing K...Pop stars. We ordered a plate of fried shrimps, chicken quesadillas and beers. The chicken quesadilla was surprisingly yummy - crispy and hot, with tender chicken meat. This is a fun place to visit if you are in the Hongdae area.More

Ordered a chicken quesadilla and fried shrimp for a simple dinner. Surprisingly it was good. The chicken quesadilla was crispy and thin without feeling like you are biting into a thick pastry stuff. The fried shrimp was delicious too. Worth going back to try their...chicken.More

My friend and I really liked this place, the chicken has an awesome taste, is cooked to perfection and it’s pretty affordable. We got a little too excited and ordered a plate that was maybe meant for 3-4 people and even though we couldn’t finish...it it’s a good way to try different flavors. Also they offer a good selection of beer! I’d say it’s a nice place for groups or couples.More

Stopped over while in the area based on a blog recommendation. We ordered the spicy half and half with fries. The chicken was good quality and marinaded properly with the skin being nice and crispy. Pleasingly,it was not too sweet like other places we have...tried. The spicy is quite hot but very enjoyable with an addictive level of spice. The fries were a pleasant surprise with additional dry spice rubbed onto it. My favourite chicken meal of this trip.More

Popular spot that’s open until very late especially on weekends. We ate here on a Saturday night around 10pm and there was still a queue of about 10-15 minutes to get a seat. Food came quick and the draft beer (Cass) was fresh and sweet....We ordered the half and half honey baked chicken- it was very good.More

Best fried chicken and fries. I also loved the fried squid. This hongdae offers terrace seating as well as upper floors for crowd watching. Great place to be after all the walking around hongdae

The oven crispy chicken is really excellent. Not oily and I also had the sesame sauce chicken which is also very good.

This review is very subjective, based on my preference taste. So, I really like spicy, like...totally spicy and honestly I'd been searched the terrifying spiciness in fried chicken everywhere in Korea. But always feel disappointed because it's not spicy enough for me. First time I...come here, actually I didn't expect much because I think the fried chicken in Korea mostly have similar taste. As usual I order the spicy one, and YES it's SPICY. Thank you so much I finally fulfil my desire for spiciness after 6 month living here hahaha. Definitely will come here again.More

I was recommended by a local to try this place for fried chicken, as I have tried a few places but nothing can compare with this eatery. It's actually a place for beer drinkers. We ordered the garlic, spicy and the normal fried chicken. Wow......we ended up eating and drinking at this place for 2 days in a row. Amazingly finger licking good. Well done, Noonaholdak.More
