The chicken skin is fantastic! Crispy and juicy ! However it's a bit too salty. Best if combine with rice.

The looks of fried chicken is simple but delicious and crispy. We have sharing 2 set chicken among 5 persons during the time visit. But all is regret, we should order each person a set. Is damn nice of their chicken. I love it.

Forget KFC, Popeyes or even Jollibee. This fried chicken is the real deal. Crispy skin coupled with moist and juicy meat without that lingering oil taste. Set lunch @ 1,000 JPY inclusive of a soup, rice, some vegetables and tofu. Order, pay at the counter and food will be served to your table. The place is popular amongst locals so... More

For travellers bored of Japanese fare in Hokkaido, this will be a treat. The fried chicken is prepared to perfection. It is served with the chicken piping out and still oozing juices. It is absolutely heavenly. Don't miss this if you are in Otaru. The fried chicken doesn't taste oily at all.

Manage to find. But every Monday, the shop close as rest day. Anyway, you can try the kiosk near Otaru Canal.

We arrived on a Tuesday, slightly after lunch hour but it was still pretty packed. We were seated within 10 minutes. Looking around us, there are both locals and tourist but I would say more tourist. The staff place a card (written in Chinese) at our desk which is the instruction on how to order and our table number. The... More

I read how people are raving about delicious naruto chicken in otaru and how different it is from any other fried chicken on earth. It was first on our agenda when we arrived in otaru and we got the ¥980 half chicken. It arrived freshly cooked, crisp skin and steaming hot meat with every pull. It was good in terms... More

Kitchen closes at 7 PM on Sunday. The restaurant is NOT OPEN ON MONDAY. We attempted to eat here three times but did not actually get to eat here since the hours are not listed anywhere at the time of this review.

Easy to find, near to JR station Fried chicken itself considered well cooked but overall nothing spectacular really... After awhile, the same dish becomes one dimensional, too dry too salty... Can try somewhere else....
