Simply buisness suicide, they got some very good drum for a one month experiment then they are gone & no where to find anymore.

KFC is about thighs and drums and breasts, not about fillet tenders, sorry we can better ones at mcdonald's!!

We came across this on our way to ski in the Alpes. If Google Maps is right it is the only KFC within 30 miles of Geneva.

I have eaten in a number of KFCs as we have all had to do on occasion. When it's done right (such as the KFC in Glasgow, Scotland) it is quite superb and you can console yourself that the sound of your arteries clogging is worth it.

Think of everything that’s great about fried chicken. Now take it all away. In its place, right between dried-out strands of gray meat and a shell of bland fried bread crumbs, imagine a gummy white paste about a quarter-inch deep. This unidentifiable paste coats your mouth until you can’t perceive textures or flavors. It is like edible Novocain. I have never seen KFCs secret recipe form such an unenticing coating of whitish-yellow sand on the chicken.

What's worse is that the restaurant does not even do the proper Original Recipe Chicken, which are the thighs, legs and breast meat that we've all come to recognise as being the signature dish.

All you get is these weird "tenders" and "hot wings" which are covered in something that I can only describe as Kellogg cornflakes once they have been deep fried. A tragedy of Shakespearean proportions.

What KFC Annemasse's fried chicken does to Southern cooking is to create the dense, rubbery consistency of overcooked leather covered in a rough, tasteless tree bark. Slithering around in the dark and trying to eat this in our car (the restaurant was only doing drive through when we arrived) was not the dizzying height of the culinary experience I was hoping for.

I can see from the other reviews in English and the majority of the reviews in any language voting for "terrible" that I'm not alone in thinking this!

The girl who served us was nice enough though.

This KFC doesn't do Original Recipe Chicken,instead they have chicken wings and some chicken fillets which are covered in a bland cornflake-like substance. They also do chicken burgers. If you want real KFC, you're out of luck! Very disappointing and not cheap either! Total wasted opportunity.

I was excited when I seen Colonel Sanders since you don't see too many KFC's in Europe.
It's not a real KFC: no real chicken, no biscuits, none of the sides that KFC's normally have.
If you want some crispy wings and some regular fries - it's okay. If you are looking for the real KFC experience - this is not it.
Not bad, but not KFC.
