Not a bad place for a take away chicken meal. Service is fast and they were friendly. I have eaten better and i have eaten worse, I think it's better than KFC. Wouldnt mind ordering food from there again.

Avoid the wraps - they microwave reheated the chicken! Ergh. Chips are the only things I'd get that taste ok

They advertise people coming from everywhere to visit Kingsleys... but why would you when it's worse than roadhouse food? There is nothing special on the menu, the chips are always soggy, and they don't exaclty overdo it with salad or sauce on the burgers. Go elsewhere.

The chips are really good; the gravy is excellent, but I just love the chicken fillet burgers with coleslaw!

Store service is poor: staff seem inexperienced and don't want to be there - maybe they're not being paid at the right rates??? The chicken is dry and the chips greasy. The store (Erindale) looks grubby. Better to buy a roast chicken elsewhere, take it home and make your own coleslaw. I'm sorry for the kids who work there, though!

hate the ads, but i must admit, they are obviously memorable (see title). they have very addictive chips, i think it comes down to the type of oil they use - it is different to regular take aways - and i rely on their roast chickens regularly for quick late night meals.

Really quick and great customer service. Nothing beats their chips and gravy. Love the 9 for $9.95 deal. Will visit again.

Previously large chips were a full bag now it's half a bag. Disappointed in Kingsleys, be honest with customers and increase the price so we get what we expect in an order!

I visited these guys recently and happy with them.. Yes it is bit pricy and specially again the prices have gone up, but after all they are fighting with an international giant KFC

Kingsley's at Woden Plaza is like Kentucky fried chicken without the taste. Greasy and mostly overcooked, apart from one piece which was almost raw. Very outdated in an age of good healthy alternatives.
