One of the best restaurants in Bishkek. Chicken is simply delicious. Try the Korean one. You can taste some of the Korean food as it is in South Korea. Staff is kind and attentive. The only thing that can be improved is the waiting time...for the food.More

This was the first restaurant that I visited while in Bishkek and if it’s a sign of what is to come with other places in the city then I’ll be very impressed. From the moment I walked in the girls were super friendly & spoke...English very well. I went for the classic friend chicken, home cut fries & a local beer all where great. I have to say the Korean spicy sauce was awesome. The place is super international & everything can be found in English, you can also come here just for a coffee too.More

Hello! Pandemic? We love Chicken Star but have been so disappointed that servers are not wearing masks or taking any precautions to help prevent COVID. Been doing take out and have tried to eat in now and then but the no-mask thing is getting me...mad. Will not be back till pandemic is over. Seriously, get your act together!More

Disappointing but understand that with the recent pandemic restaurants are not all functioning at a high level of performance or service. However, I felt annoyed that we had to constantly ask for assistance, received warm, not cold water, and the waiter could not speak English...at all. A supervisor had to come over to take our orders. I felt disappointed as I had heard this was a venue that catered well for foreigners, but we received poor service, and left feeling so agitated, we had to go somewhere else to get a coffee. Our food choices, vegetarian had few choices on the menu. and the decoration of art was not professional on the walls, rather high school level of competency, very disappointing,More

We ordered 2 half chickens for the 3 of us and a few appetizers. We ate every last piece. The chicken was not to spicy and the jeju cocktail hit the spot. The ambiance was fun, friendly, and the staff were so caring. We loved...this place. It was the best meal of our trip to Bishkek!More

I have never heard of kimchi having pork. I’ve been to Korea many times. Maybe spacial ones do? Have not tried it at chicken star.
