What would a foodie do if he is too upset or frustrated? Well, if you’re a foodie you would have only one answer – you would just go out and eat your favorite food. That’s the only thing which makes us feel good. Now, if you’re a non vegetarian, which place would you like to go?
I bet hundreds of you would say KFC. KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) is a fast food restaurant chain that has franchisees all over the world and is considered to be the best for people who love to eat chicken. But is it really true? Is KFC really finger licking good?
Well, I know there would be many of you boiling with anger for the very question I asked. How can I put forward such a question about KFC? But believe it or not, KFC isn’t that good. In fact, it’s not good at all.
Why? You really need a reason? There it is then..
The not so Unique and Fine Quality of Chicken
I remember the time when people used to boast of the fact that they have tried out the KFC chicken but now, it’s an entirely different era. There are hundreds of KFC outlets here and there which have failed to meet up the KFC standard. Yes, they might run under the name of KFC but if you say that they really have the quality of chicken as KFC is considered to have, you would be utterly disappointed.
There was a time when the recipe of KFC was considered to be a super secret and there was no food outlet that could provide the fried chicken as good as and as similar as that of KFC. But now, yes of course, no outlet can provide food similar to that of KFC. But the truth is, they’re better. I remember myself going to NYPFC and some random restaurant in Goa and trying out the fried chicken over there. I was literally cursing myself for why do I even go to KFC? Maybe to criticize them and get thwarted again and again.
Now, let’s talk about just KFC. A real KFC lover shouldn’t be comparing it to any other food outlet. So, let’s see how the food in KFC is. Well, first of all the limited variety of food is going to be ignored by me for if I don’t do that, I would be very cruel towards KFC.
I have eaten at 4 KFC outlets in Punjab itself – KFC, 3B2 Mohali, KFC, Sec 35 Chandigarh, KFC, Elante Mall Chandigarh and KFC in Kharar. All four of them had a pathetic food quality. I wonder where did the concept of taste monitoring which used to ensure the good quality of food go. While the KFC in 3B2 Mohali uses an extremely bad quality of chicken as raw material, rest of the outlets are perhaps trying to save their gas bills. What else can be the reason of improper cooking of food?
Why do we even spend so much money on such a bad quality food?
Ambience & Service at KFC
If you’re going to a restaurant, the biggest thing that makes a difference in your experience is the ambience and service.
Now, service – well you can see those people talking to themselves, cracking jokes but not taking your order. Even when they take your order, you have to keep waiting while you can clearly see your order ready. But the people are busy chatting as always. And you would be thinking it might be a problem with just one outlet. I tried four and had the same experience and this makes me sure that there’s something very wrong with their work culture.
With bad service, bad ambience is quite predictable. Apart from places not being cleaned, I don’t see anything attractive out there which would provide me a good eating experience.
So, no good food, no good service, no good ambience with high prices. Would you still consider KFC as fingerlicking good?
Tell me your views about it. Have you ever been to KFC? How did you find it – good or bad? Did you like the food, service and ambience? Share!
I’ve visited a number of KFC outlets in Delhi and found them all clean. But how the food is prepared, whether the interior is clean, etc, I don’t know. I’m not addicted to KFC, but I find it good enough for a monthly break…
Maybe it’s the problem with the outlets in Punjab area only. Even I don’t know about what kind of cleanliness they maintain while cooking, but there are two most important things that I do care about – Taste of food and service. And according to my experience, that has been consistently horrible.
We’re terribly sorry we didn’t meet your expectations, and grateful that you chose to share your feedback with us.

Warm Regards, Team KFC
Thank you KFC India team for showing your concern but that really doesn’t work. It’s been one year I have been visiting your stores and giving you feedback through feedback forms present in the restaurant itself and even online. There has been no difference in any till now.
True each and every word of the above post.
I used to be a regular KFC goer . I have visited their branches in Dehradun , Delhi , Mumbai , Chennai , Pune….yaa…I change places a lot :p…And I must say , I just hate visiting any of their outlests now. And I would be more than glad to say that “Manpreet , I second your thought”. The quality just keeps deteriorating now. Don’t know what the fuss is all about still. Some people are still hardcore KFC lovers ‘coz of the reason that they “used to” serve Finger lickin’ Chicken.
Hi Nikhil, You are right.. some people still love KFC because they are still under the impression that KFC serves fingerlickin’ chicken.
My personal experience with KFC:
Day 1- Returned the food since it was tasteless.
Day 2- Bad Chicken smell all over the restaurant.
Day 3 never came nor will come.
Hahahha.. you know my experience with KFC has always been bad but still for some reason or another, I end up eating at KFC every weekend. 😛
What’s up, just wanted to tell you, I liked this post.
It was helpful. Keep on posting!
Thank you Gabrielle
I’m really inspired together with your writing talents as well as with the layout to your blog.
Is that this a paid subject matter or did you modify it yourself?
Anyway stay up the excellent high quality writing, it’s uncommon to
see a great blog like this one today..
Hey Porter, this is not a paid subject matter. This is what I really think. In fact, all the reviews posted on this site are 100% true. They’re my own opinions and I don’t get paid for them.
Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4
year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
Hey there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my twitter group?
There’s a lot of people that I think would really enjoy your content.
Please let me know. Many thanks
Hey, Why would I mind? Feel free to share 🙂
I absolutely love your website.. Excellent colors & theme.
Did you make this web site yourself? Please reply back as I’m planning to create my own personal blog and would like to find out where you got this from or just
what the theme is called. Thanks!
Hey, yep I made this website myself. It is based on wordpress so that is very easy to create and doesn’t need any kind of programming knowledge or anything like that. Feel free to ask me more questions if you need more help. This is the twitter handle i use @manpreet1011 and connect with me over there 🙂
I used to visit 35 sector KFC in 2010-2011,before I moved to Pune.
Though I had a similar experience in 35 C, but they had friendly staff there that time. However in Pune, I had visited couple of outlets, one thing there is the products are bit more salty and difficult to digest. Had a pathetic experience here and have stopped visiting KFCs now.
Thanks for sharing your experience. The staff at 35 sec is almost okay. But I usually go to (used to go to) the 3B2 outlet where the staff is really pathetic. I hate to say that about people who try to work hard for their living but they do need some grooming, which is the responsibility of the company.
Wow, wonderful blog layout! How long have you ever been blogging for?
you make blogging glance easy. The full glance of
your website is great, let alone the content material!
Thank you. I have been blogging for about 3 years now. 🙂
