The food was okay, but nothing special. The pancake was undercooked and gooey, the chicken was fine, the beef and the fried rice were okay. The restaurant itself was not very nice, the bathroom was on the old, dingy side. The service was good. I...More

I’ve read mixed reviews about this place but it did not let me down. At first I was a little skeptical about the idea of Korean fried chicken. I ordered a combo of drums and strips and wow!!! First, it’s a ton of food... Second,...More

I've had BonChon at their other international outlets and enjoyed it as a fan of Korean CheeMac. Maybe I got a bad batch I equate to more of old school Chinese jumbo fried chicken type covering then soaked in a very greasy honey glaze. Sorry...More

I first came here many years ago and went again recently and it's still just as good as I remembered it.

Visited on 19th April- just round the corner from our hotel. Fabulous service & staff. Food at a reasonable price. Best Chicken Fried Rice we’ve had in ages - give it a go if you fancy something different.

Went there for lunch on a work day. Very loud music, ok service, not very clean. If you're looking for a traditional Korean meal, they serve a bare-bones version. Over priced but it is Harvard Square.

There was nothing special about the chicken here. KFC does it better. No exciting flavors and LOUD restaurant.

Best Korean friend chicken. I come here a lot with friends. The Allston branch has more to offer. They have japchae, buldak, etc. The problem here is that there's no parking. It can take yuou 1/2 hour to find one, but so worth it.
