Delicious chicken but the service is far from great!

In the mood for some good KFC (Korean Fried Chicken) then 99 will do the trick. I'm not Korean and do not know a whole lot about it but I've been told that 99 serves some authentic ones. 99 is located in a strip mall it may bit a little hard to find so just keep your eyes open. I... read more

My friend took me to 99 Chicken. This is more of the style of an Asian restaurant you may go to IN ASIA. A very busy place. We had to wait about 15mins. it is a popular place. The owner is an "Acquired Taste". He is gruff and wouldn't win any congeniality awards. I think of him line a "Chicken... More

It's pretty interesting how they turn an American classic into Asian Fusion. Their soy garlic fried chicken is definitely the way to go here. If you dine in here, they include self serve rice and salad. The salad bar is limited and small, but the choices are sufficient enough for me.

This place is really tiny almost a dive. Service is not great, but the hallmark of great Asian restaurants is this, if the place looks run down, service is bad and yet you still keep coming for the food, you know its good. This is that kind of place. You really don't care about atmosphere because you here for fried... More

Ive had better chicken, in a better place, with better service. Nothing special, even a little depressing feeling from who I assume are the owners.

I've eaten here twice now...the fried chicken is ok and not out of this world. The main thing which puts me off is the service...the place is run by an old Korean couple who seems as though they have a grudge against me for eating there...told me I couldn't eat in their resturant because I ordered a "To go" dish...

Don't go here. I had soy garlic and spicy sauce. soy garlic was way too salty and spicy sauce was decent. I wanted a lunch menu, but they don't have any. so, I ended up paying $20 for 10 pieces chicken. The reason why I can give nothing more than just one star is because the service was horrific. I'm...

OK just a hole in a strip mall wall but fun and unique. Here's a quick run down: 1. All you can eat salad and steamed rice bar. 2. The fried chicken dishes are cooked-to-order. Yum! 3. A lot of food. One order will easily feed two people. 4. The beer selection is very limited. 5. Very popular. So be... More

I love their fried chicken, fried to order! Great with the simple salad bar, rice, and tea that you can help yourself to. Yummy combination!
