Introduction
ChickenUp is well known and best loved for serving authentic Korean Fried Chicken. By adapting the Korean methods of removing the fat from the skin and double-frying, Chicken Up created its own distinct variation of fried chicken, featuring juicy, sumptuous and tender chicken meat under its thin and crunchy skin without being too greasy.

Best known for its signature SpicyUp and YangNyum style fried chicken. ChickenUp also serves several variations of the dish with the accompaniment of different sauces such as soya and curry sauces.

Chicken Up has vastly improved since I last ate here 3 years ago. Ambience at Chicken Up is now much brighter and cleaner, with a distinctly open, countryside theme, evident from the rustic, sturdy wooden furniture. Restaurants are brightly lit by white light, and the atmosphere is more spacious. Service at Chicken Up is now more attentive, staff are quick to respond to guests, take orders, and clear away empty / dirty tables. Also, they now have more staff that can speak E...

As we were not full after dinner, we decided to head to Chicken Up to try their crispy fried chicken. 4 pieces were the minimum order (larger portion was 8) and it came with radish and naked salad. The chicken was crispy and tender, though inevitably oily because they were deep-fried. We also tried the korean rice drink which was pretty good and light-tasting. There's a discount for early bird diners. I'll be back to try their flavoured chicken smile

Tonight we decided to have fried chicken.... actually we wanted the fruit Soju more... hence The Four Friends met up at Chicken Up, a Korean fried chicken restaurant amongst a row of shophouses along Tanjong Pagar area.The interesting thing about Chicken Up is that they remove the layer of fats from the chicken skin and double fry the chicken so that it would still be tender and juicy but not greasy. Well, let's see about that. Anyway, they used to have Fried Chicken...

Chicken Up is a place that I have been hearing about for the longest time. It probably has the best Korean fried chicken. Legend has it that it was picked by a Straits Times reporter in a blind test. I love the Korean style of double frying chickens which retains the chicken juices while keeping it crispy and crunchy. Thus, even though we found ourselves on a 1-hour waiting list, we didn't chicken out (pun intended). We were up for it and our hearts were unwavering, full of ant...

It was full house when we visited Chicken Up the other day. The staff was attentive and quickly told us to wait. After a while we got our table. We ordered Nyang Nyum Chicken (Sweet and Spicy Chicken), Pajeon (Vegetable Pancake), Jjangmyon (Black Bean Sauce Noodle), and not to forget their signature Watermelon Soju. The chicken was delicious. It was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The sweet and spicy glaze was pretty nice too. The spi...

Have always heard of the good reviews of this korean chicken restaurant at tanjong pagar (right beisde 2day1night) and decided to give it a try. I went with a friend we have ordered spicy up chicken (4pcs), a jar of yakult soju and truffle fries. this add up to a total of $55 which i find it rather expensive. The spicy up flavored chicken wings were quite average. taste like KFC chicken. we wanted to try the other flavors however we dont think we could finish it as there are only 2 ...

Recommended by a classmate, a group of 11 of us decided to give “Chicken Up” a try. Having heard for the first time, I thought nothing of it other than that of eating at “KFC”. Boy was I proven wrong‼! I was amazed by its trendy interior, great atmosphere, warm welcome and excellent service which instantly made me feel at ease. In addition, not knowing what to order, the friendly staff offered to assist by recommending /introducing their sumptuous specialty Soya Chicken ...

It's 2AM after a night of shamefully bowling a 93 and what am I thinking about? Korean fried chicken. I'm screaming at the top of my lungs for the Wolverines to stop my heart palpitations and to finally kick the Hoosiers in their place and what am I thinking about? Korean fried chicken. I have a one track mind and lately, my brain is laser-focused on Chicken Up. I crave it. I want it. I need it. Crispy, crunchy skin artfully coated in a thin layer of soy or spicy sauce....
