So apparently the key is that they fry it twice. We've come here several times and have a consistently great meal. The kimchee coleslaw is tasty and the spicy chicken is delish! There aren't a lot of tables so there's generally a bit of a wait but the service is fast, the staff is nice, and the food is awesome!

Due to the lack of competition in San Jose, I can understand... More

This fried chicken is not so good. Only available in two flavors and neither of them are very tasty. The spicy version tastes like they just added tabasco sauce. Service is slow and we waited a long time just to get two glasses of water - and that was before the food arrived. Kimchee salad was bland and the biscuit... More

While visiting friends in Sunnyvale, my husband and I had the wonderful opportunity to taste Bon Chon chicken. What a delight! The chicken was unique, crisp, and full of flavor! We all shared one of the large meals, which has plenty of food and variety for one great price.
