Got their signature chicken, sauce on the side and it was really good. It was moist and tasty with a good amount of pieces for the full order.

Gangnam Chicken started out as a korean fried chicken place a few years back. They are now a standard menu Korean restaurant with tofu soup, Korean barbecue, mandu, etc. But we still return for the Korean fried chicken (KFC). We've eaten KFC at Bonchon and Von's, two Korean chains, and they are okay. But the KFC at Gangnam was great.... More

I was impressed the first time I tried their fried chicken. It was really crunchy and delicious but lately, it wasn't up to par. The service is good tho. Good place to have a quick bite of fried chicken but some days they're good and some days, it's ok.

It took several walk-bys until we realized that Gangnam serves Korean dishes. We have now visited several times and love the food! We came for the bibimbap (our favourite) and like it best served in a hot stoneware dish. We also like several of the soups and appreciate the array of vegetables served at the start of the meal. Despite... More

First time at the restaurant while it was my wife's second time. Went with high expectations because my wife loves the food. We had the 1/2 Regular Fried Chicken for the kids and 1/2 Gangnam Chicken. The Gangnam sauce is a blend of spicy and sweet. She felt it tasted "authentic" like the fried chicken she's had in Seoul. As... More
