To top it off, they have puddings for dessert and the usual fan-favorite drinks.
Their prices are also reasonable for the servings they offer. Their 20-piece chicken dish is priced on average at $27, which makes each chicken piece just a little over a dollar.
Also, be on the lookout for special, limited flavors from this restaurant. Their most recent special chicken flavors were maple bourbon and bacon bourbon BBQ.
The community has been raving about Seoul Fried Chicken as one of Edmonton’s best chicken restaurants. Here are some of their comments:
“We finally got a chance to eat at Seoul Fried last night for the first time! Not only were the customers raving about the food, but the staff was super friendly and patient with us while we made our first order! I have to say, that was some incredible chicken and sides! The chicken was crispy on the outside and so juicy on the inside! I had no idea that for $11.99 I could get so much food! We will most be back!”

Coco Deep Fried Chicken has gained positive reviews from its customers. Here are some of their statements:
“All I can say is WOW!! We’ve driven by several times and decided to give it a shot tonight and I’m sure glad we did. The sweet and spicy chicken is awesome (warm spice, not spicy hot) and the soy garlic chicken was excellent as well. The chicken was all crispy, well sauced and the meat was all tender and juicy. I’m looking forward to trying the cheesy chicken next time and would highly recommend Coco Deep Fried Chicken.”
“Great food and what an amazing service. I love fried chicken and whenever someone recommends a new place I try it. One of the best fried chicken places in town. The chicken is moist and juicy inside while the outside is crisp and delicious. I have tried every flavor they have to offer. My go-to has been soy garlic and hot and sweet. The owner is very friendly and will provide you with amazing service.”

Also had the smashed potatoes- so good with the cheese curds! With the chicken came the potato salad, which was delicious and the coleslaw (haven’t tried that yet). Took home a frozen Mac and cheese to have with the rest of the chicken tomorrow. Highly recommend you try!”

“Ordered for delivery due to being housebound. This chicken is amazing. Super crispy and juicy but not greasy. Fries held up well during delivery and were still a little crisp. Got the side of Hot & Sweet sauce for dipping…..omg. It’s got a kick to it but it’s crazy delicious. Support local small businesses and check this place out.”
“Ordered Wow Chicken on Skip the Dishes tonight and it was great. We ordered two Wow Meals – one 3piece chicken and with rice and the boneless chicken meal with French fries. We tried the Sweet & Hot sauce on a few pieces. The sauce was delicious; would consider it medium heat for those who like things hot. Fried chicken was well seasoned and not overly greasy. The rice was yummy.. weird I know but I like rice. It was perfectly sticky and went well with the chicken. We also ordered the cheese sticks as an appetizer; they were still warm and gooey when it got here. Will FOR SURE order again.”
