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 English! Food at Chicken Up has improved as well, they've expanded their regular menu, removed less popular items, and improved upon their Korean fried chicken recipes. Portions are still large and suitable for communal dining, but bulk purchasing has actually brought their down overall prices, so diners pay less for food now!

The Bulgogi Fries (SGD $18) are a new item on the menu, and among the best things I've eaten here! Actual strips of tender soy sauce marinated beef bulgogi strips, are loaded generously along with red onions, spring onions, and mayonnaise on top of piping hot, straight cut, medium sized fries. The combination is incredibly tasty, savoury, salty, sweet, and sharp; with textures of chewy, crunchy, creamy, and fluffy. Highly recommended!

The Gochujang Chicken Dup Bap Set (SGD $13) is good value for money. This set meal for dine in or takeaway includes 1 main (chicken, beef, or pork) rice bowl, 2 salads, 1 soup, 1 dessert or drink, and 1 fruit ball. The Seaweed Soup is nicely light and savoury, without that ugly salty flavour, so it's pretty good. The Fresh Salad features fresh and crunchy lettuce leaves, but is rather small. The Caramelised Kimchi Pickled Cabbage is sharp and sour in taste, but doesn't annoy the palate, with a nicely crunchy texture. The Gochujang Chicken Dup Bap features a basic white rice bowl, topped with cabbage, cellophane noodles, and strips of tender chicken stir-fried with onions in a savoury, sweet and spicy Korean gochujang / red pepper paste sauce. Very tasty, heart, and filling!

The Mini Pat Bing Su (SGD $7) has a decent amount of red beans, condensed milk, shaved ice, and vanilla ice cream, garnished with a melon fruit ball and a stick of Glico Pocky Almond Crush Milk Chocolate biscuit. Refreshing with an earthy sweet taste, rather palate cleansing as well. Good!

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

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 Buffet but have done away with that now.

We ordered pretty shortly and began with the Ganjang Up Fried Chicken (SGD$20.00) - soya flavored fried chicken. Well, quite crispy on the outside, and as promised the meat was juicy and tender without the usual oiliness. The soy-marinated flavor was rather distinctive, giving the chicken a lovely taste.

Next, we had the Spicy Up Fried Chicken (SGD$18.00) - well, I believe that the name itself needs no introduction. The skin was more crispy for this one, and I enjoyed the spicy flavor of the succulent chicken although *Katherine, *Zachery and *Edison all preferred the soy chicken more. Perhaps I enjoy heavier / spicier flavors more? Nonetheless, remember - crispy skin on the outside, succulent flesh within with very little hint of greasiness.

Anyway, we also had the Pineapple Soju (SGD$30.00) served in a large pineapple shell, mixed with sweet pineapple juice and Korean alcohol SOJU. They were served in dainty little glasses and tasted very refreshing - hints of the bitter soju was minimal and lost within the cold sweetness of the pineapple drinks.

Next, we had the Watermelon Soju (SGD$38.00) - a very huge watermelon shell containing watermelon juice and an entire bottle of SOJU. For this, we drank with small shell-shaped bowls. The watermelon juice was very cooling and parched our thirst, defending us against the heaty delicacy we'd just eaten. For this one, the taste of the soju became even lighter since the watermelon shell is larger than the pineapple husk. Nonetheless, I loved this saccharine drink.

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.

We were up for it and our hearts were unwavering, full of anticipation for our turn to devour this fried chicken.

Chicken Up is housed among the shophouses along Tanjong Pagar Road. On a good day with no crowds, you can choose to sit either indoors or outdoors. The patrons were mainly teenagers and youngsters. I thought it was quite noisy and rowdy. We felt like the oldest people there.

We have heard a lot about the Chicken Up's cheap and good Korean fried chicken buffet at $25. 
We waited for damn long, like 15 mins before the first chicken arrived on our table. I found out from other reviews that each order is freshly fried so it takes longer time.

Yangnyum (below) - I loved the crispy and crackly moist skin which was coated with a sweet and spicy sauce and also sesame for additional crunch. It was not as spicy as it looks. More towards tones of sweetness. However, I found the meat a little tough.

Soya chicken (below) - Marinated and coated with Korean soya sauce, the soya chicken wings were more tender than the yangnyum. Maybe it was because chicken wing parts are usually more tender and moist than other parts. These lovely wings were as crispy and flavourful as they look. A pity that they were not served piping hot.

Spicy Up (below) - Looks can be deceiving. This innocent-looking golden brown chicken was a bit too spicy for me but not for my friend who is a spice girl (not the girl group). Served piping hot, the chicken's juices were sealed beneath the crispy skins. So juicy that the juices squirted out when I bite into them.

We also got the Andong Chicken Stew (below) which is a soya sauce-based soup that comes with a chicken drumstick that has meat so tender that it fell of the bone easily, and other goodies such as potatoes, carrots, korean rice cakes. My friend enjoyed it a lot but I found the broth too salty for my palate.

The salt-sprinkled truffle fries (below) were surprisingly not overpowering with the typical strong pungent truffle aroma. Thus, both my friend and I who are not big fans of truffles liked this.

Service was really slow and we had to wait for a long time for them to give us the bill.
After which we waited a long time for them to collect the bill.
We eventually paid in exact cash instead of credit card because they were really wasting our time.
Personally we find this slightly overrated. I think the pieces were too big so we were really full after a few pieces. It would be perfect if they come in wings or drumlets. But still I think not bad lah. A change from usual KFC and better than KFC.

The sweet and spicy glaze was pretty nice too. The spiciness was mild, just the way I like it. The pancake was nice, and wasn't oily at all. The one dish I didn't like was the noodles. I find it pretty bland with no seasoning at all.

The watermelon soju was definitely the highlight of my dinner. It was cooling and refreshing without being too overpowering. They mixed the soju in a bowl of carved watermelon topped with some ice cubes.

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 of us. hence i advice people to go in big groups so you can try out a wide variety of flavors. alternatively, you can go for the buffet too and its is $25++ with a additional of $5 if you were there on friday or wkend.

On the other hand, we were satisfied with the yakult soju and the truffles fries. the yakult soju taste sweet and the truffle fries has a rich taste in the truffle oil. Also, the staffs there are extremely friendly and easy to approach.

Overall, i will be back in future with a group of friends to try out the other flavors of the chicken wings.

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 Wings, Spicy-Up and Yangyum Chicken of which we added another 3 orders of fries.

Soon enough, we were served salad with mustard sauce, steaming hot fries and HUGE exceptionally tender, juicy and crispy pieces of chicken parts. It was so good that the soon enough we reordered another two servings of Soya Chicken Wings. Clearly, this was the best chicken I have ever eaten. Yummy‼‼ Two thumps up‼‼ Personal favorite so far is the Yangyum chicken. Really tasty and definitely something that worth craving for‼‼‼

I really enjoyed myself and am definitely going back for more. Next on my list, “Suicide 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. One bite in and you get a mouthful of juicy chicken that's simply sublime. Definitely order more. You also get salad , chilled radishes as free sides and they are super tasty.

Even though I just had my fill today, I'm craving it again. Clearly the best fried chicken that's ever created by mankind and the only reason why I could never be a vegetarian!

Went there with a Korean friend of mine, as she said that the boss was friendly and she feels at home whenever she patronize the place. And i was surprise by the ratio of Koreans to Singaporeans in the restaurant, there was obviously more Koreans.

So we went ahead with the Beer and Chicken buffet, frankly speaking, i was never into eating fried chicken when im out drinking. But my friend insisted that we order the combo. Indeed i didnt regret and ended up ordering more than i can take it. The chicken was just so good.
What happens when Korean meets Korean; it only means that there will be more food on the table! The boss actually gave us food on the house which gave me a very good impression of the hospitality of the place!

Who doesn't love a good fried chicken? Ever since my first taste of Korean fried chicken at Mad for Chicken in NYC (they go by a diff name Tt escapes my pre-caffeinated brain now), I've been longing for those robust and exhilarating flavors again.

The search ends at Chicken Up. Exceptionally tender and juicy chicken with a light and superbly crispy batter. BonChon can screw its double fried a** staleness that it claims to be authentic. Yes I'm still darn pissed about Tt crappy chicken that I had there a yr ago at the Bugis+ outlet.

Anyway, their mild up spicy isn't that spicy to me so i'll go for suicide chicken next time. I absolutely went gaga over the soya chicken. My gawd. Droolicious I tell ya!

First time trying the Andong chicken stew and my.. It was such a silent killer. Be very careful eating this one. I didn't pay attention and a little of the soup went down the wrong pipe and I was coughing and tearing for a long time. That said, it's actually not outrightly spicy if you are careful. Well flavored chicken that falls off the bone. They also have the glass noodles in them.

Chicken lovers, this is the place to be! They do a chicken buffet with a beer option. Do check them out!

The fried chicken here was fabulous! It was not as oily as elsewhere but was very juicy. We tried the Spicy Up on one occasion and the Andong and Suicide Chicken on another. The Suicide Chicken was just hot enough for our taste and the chicken in the Andong was stewed till it had absorbed all of the soup's flavour. Our only regret is that we didn't manage to try the suicide beer, which we understood to be a Korean tradition.
