We ❤️ fried chicken, always have and always will.
Our love of fried chicken started before we can even remember – with our family’s secret, signature fried chicken recipe. We finally decided it was too good not share. Now, we’re bringing it to Canberra.
From our humble beginning in a food truck, we’ve moved to a new home in Canberra’s foodie hot spot – Lonsdale Street in Braddon.

Chicken is amazing!! Staff were very friendly, the site was very clean and booking service was great. I thought the shakes were a tad small but tasted really good regardless!!

Food was amazing. They were obviously very busy but they were friendly and the food came within a reasonable time. It was quite crowded with people waiting for pick up orders.

Hadn't been before but glad we went. A great range of options including for my vegan wife which is terrific. She loved her Fregan Burger and Cauliflower bites - so nice to be able to order something from a menu and not ask for changes. Our daughter and I had chicken and really enjoyed it - the chicken was great and tasted like chicken and the toppings were really nice and didn't kill the chicken. Will go back and probably become a regular. Great stuff.

A new place for us to sample, the chicken was great. Our table sampled a few items from the menu. BUT the dessert waffle was too die for... amazing!

We will be back to sample more items and inhale another waffle.... YUM!

My Wife being a celiac she has missed having the fried chicken, so she was very happy to go.
I must say it is very tasty. The stay sauce on the chicken is great and the Line Chicken ribs are fantasic.
We will be back for sure

Friend and I ordered Sweet Chicken with Fries, Caramilk Balls and Peanut Butter Milkshake. Chicken was good, the caramilk balls were very overdone and almost burnt but the milkshake ($8) was good. The only bad thing I could say about it is that at that price you would expect it to come in a larger size than only a small cup. It was an okay dining experience, don't think it is something I NEED to try again.

We dined on Sun afternoon and it started to get busy after 1 pm.

Overall the food & serving size was good.

The fries were crispy and hot. The chicken came out cold -which was strange!

I'm guessing the chicken was pre-fried and kept aside then later coated with the different flavours.

Enjoyed the Peanut butter shake.

Overal 5/10
