“kfc”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

What i like in KFC is their unique taste specially with fried chicken. Their hygienic practices are equally good with other well-known fast-food standards.

“Oh My God KFC - you need to sort this one out!!!!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

We went to the KFC by Grand Central - 42nd Street..........

There were two female members of staff serving....there uniforms were dirty, their hair falling lank around their faces - not great impressions of cleanliness for such a well known brand of food.
No smile, no greeting - just eye brows raised as if to say - "what do you want"

She took the money and slammed the change and the receipt onto the counter....nice customer service skills all round.

There was a man going round cleaning downstairs....again super friendly...NOT!!!

The food was ok - can't complain really.

We wernt the only ones to remark on the shocking state of the staff - everyone who came down the stairs was talking about them.

Not good - what a terrible experience to have had in such a well known "resturaunt".

Am back home now and have since had a KFC here - perhaps you should send your staff on a trip here to show them how to behave in a customer service position.

“Miserable”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

KFC is our family tradition since children we small. We had high expectations for trying it in NYC. The place in Grand Central is small, not very clean and the chicken was dried out, hard as nails. what a disappointment

“That smell”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

You can recognice this "restaurant" by far of terrible smell of burnt grease. Place itself is packed with overweight locals stuffing greasy chicken to their faces. You can get good laugh while visiting there :)

“Bigger pieces than in UK !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Mash potato and gravy were a main meal highlight. This is the sort if food you need when jet lagged. Not sure about the small cake thing.
