This is the greatest spot near Central Park. Clients say that they like the menu of Korean cuisine here. You can order tasty fried chicken, coleslaw and bulgogi. People can order good rice cakes and perfectly cooked pancakes at this restaurant. Among the drinks, there is delicious draft beer. A lot of visitors order great tea.

At Bonchon Chicken, you can get a takeaway. But yelp displays that the rating of this place is not high.

Excellent service and very tasty food. Great "fast-food" like restaurant to dine.
My fiance and I were first-timers here last weekend, and damn have we been missing out! We didn't have plans to go here, and we weren't even hungry, but given the fact that we're never in this area, we made the effort to stop by. I was quick to let our server know that we were first-timers so that we can get first-timer suggestions. We ended up going with a medium combo with sweet crunch, and a couple of spicy wings. Our server was quick to warn us about the level of spiciness for the spicy. I laugh in the face of danger *Simba laugh.* Just kidding. It was actually pretty hot. We also ordered Takoyaki and a side of plain house friend rice. A coworker of mine recently introduced me to takoyaki, so ordering this was kind of my first time. SO. DAMN. GOOD. It's nice a crispy on the outside, super-soft on the inside, and the consistency of deliciousness has stayed throughout each bite. Then came the wings. HO-LY SHIT. So damn good. How the hell do they make it so saucy on the outside and still crispy and crunchy on the skin? Korean fried chicken is truly a gift from God. It was so tasty that I ate beyond my limits to the point where I damn near hated myself. Make sure you get the rice too, it's an essential complement to how good that chicken is. As for the spiciness, it's spicy. I tell myself (and others) that I'm into spicy things, but this was a level of spice that gave me the sweats and a slight level of discomfort. If sriracha is hot to you, stay away from spicy. Overall this place is fried chicken heaven. I can go as far as saying this is my top-3 favorite fried chicken experience ever. A+
