    I ordered the grilled specialty -- Jerk BBQ, together with the Cream of Mushroom soup, a soft drink and an ice cream.

    Don't know why, the staff there seems to be of those lowly paid kind (look at the way they groom themselves and you would understand). But otherwise, the staff they are quite understanding and polite (they don't come and disturb you now and then).

    The serving size for the chicken was rather small, though it is tasty. The ice cream is typically "Kings ice cream" type. The soup was just nice, be it serving size or taste.

    Meanwhile, I would recommend this place, only if you are on a budget when dining with girlfriend, yet want a decent restaurant setting.

      BBQ Chicken is located in Cineleisure basement, where Cafe Cartel used to be. They pride themselves in deep frying chicken in 100% olive oil, which is supposed to be healthier, but I have my doubts.

      Of course, being located in somewhere frequented by youngsters (not that I'm old), the pricing is fairly reasonable, though it's much more pricier than KFC or Macs.

      We tried the Ginseng Flavoured chicken The set lunch is $15 after extra charges, for 2 pieces of good sized chicken, fries and coleslaw, and it came with corn soup, a free drink and a scoop of ice cream.

      The chicken has exceeded my (low) expectations, and I would even say that it's pretty good! It's the kind that's just cooked, extremely tender, juicy and bursting with yummy chicken juices. It's also sprinkled with ginseng flavoured powder, giving it a unique Korean taste.

      In terms of taste, the ginseng powder could be more generous - the ginseng powder is pretty sparse, and while eating the chicken, I'll sometimes hit a spot with lots of powder, and at others, there's no ginseng taste at all.

      The coleslaw beats KFC's hands down cos it's so much fresher, doesn't have that weird stale cabbage smell and has huger cabbage pieces instead of cabbage bits.

      I actually went back for dinner the same day because I was watching an evening movie and after I told my friends about my lunch, they all wanted to try the Ginseng Chicken too! Hope the olive oil doesn't clog my arteries :S

        This new chain of restaurant is pretty new in Singapore. It is said to be Korea’s No. 1 Chicken Restaurant and everything is cooked in 100% extra virgin olive oil. Even though I had walked past this basement brightly decorated restaurant a few times, it did not hit me that I have not tried this place. So one day decided to have dinner there before the movie starts.

        This place operates like a restaurant so we have to wait at the counter outside to be ushered into a table. Well the place seems quite deserted and only a few tables occupied when we were there. Like what I said before the place is brightly decorated, and with pictures of their food all over the place. It does not look like a Korean place to me at all, more like a fast food restaurant. We were given a menu where seem like all their food are focus on chicken, from fried to charbroiled. They even infused ginseng flavor fried and charbroiled chicken. They also got sandwich, salads, etc. Quite interesting menu with tempting pictures, felt quite tempted to order all and give it a try!

        In the end, we ordered the original Olive Luxury Chicken (3 pieces) and Korean Charbroiled Chicken (2 pieces), together with a set meal, which consist of rice, coleslaw, fries and drink. We tried to change one serving of fries to wedges but the waitress informed us that it was sold out. Hmm…. After which we waited for 5 minutes which drinks came and another 15 mins before the main dish arrives. It took some time but I believe they cooked the chicken from scratch therefore took sometime.
