The lady in the front counter taking orders kept jumping from one line to another and kept skipping me. When it was my turn to order (which was 30 mins later) the lady didn't know to much English and gave me the wrong food. After I corrected the order I sat down at this decent dirty table. All the other... More

Yes, this is a KFC and therefore food should be standard. It was expected but the fries were delicious. Really good location next to exit 4 of Itaewon station. Nice staff and good prices. Recommended!

Itaewon is a foodie paradise. There are so many joints here. KFC serves the best food. For vegetarians there is not much choice. They have have potato wedges which are equally tasty.

The location is very accessible because it's near Itaewon subway station. It has 2nd floor to accommodate more diners. I just hope if they can add staff to maintain cleanliness and fast service in the counter.

Got suckered into it because of the "Double Down" sandwich. Which was too dry and nothing special in my opinion and our potato wedges weren't cooked all the way and tasted weird (freezer burnt maybe?) Definitely won't be returning. Positives: -Plenty of seating upstairs and clean. Negatives: -In NO way does it taste like KFC in the US, it just... More

Just dont do it. There are sooooo many other places to eat don't do this to yourself. The only good thing about this place is the location and the ability to watch people.
