“Standard KFC option!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

We enjoy trying to find budget dining options when traveling so we stopped by the KFC for take-away one evening during our recent trip to Taupo. Compared to our local Hong Kong KFC branches, we found the food at the Taupo branch to be of much larger portion and better tasting.

We ordered a zinger burger w/bacon that was actually a very good sandwich (rating 4 of 5) as well as a baked chicken boxed set that was good enough (rating 3 of 5). Along with drinks our meal came to NZ$21 which did feel a bit pricey for fast-food.

Service was a bit slow in this KFC branch, which was only manned by three staff, taking care of inside customers and the drive-through window. They were nice, patient and seemed to be working hard so we didn't mind the wait.

Overall, this seemed a standard KFC experience. It's fast-food so you know what you are going to get.
