Harden's says

Chick ‘n’ Sours opened a fourth site in November 2019, near Liverpool Street. The 50-cover spot features vegan offerings and take-away. Lovers of the legendary (and Sunday only) ‘Whole Fry’ will be delighted to know it is available every day here.

“Massive flavours, great vibe” and the “best chicken wings tasted in a long time” (#nextlevel) add up to “heaven in a chintzy, porcelain bowl”, say fans of this “great value” concept based in Haggerston, now with branches in Covent Garden and Islington. “It’s not just about the chicken – yes, it’s mega-crispy and yes, it’s super-juicy, but what sets Chick ‘n’ Sours apart are the garnishes, sides and sauces” – many of them Asian-inspired, such as “the yummy, smashed, spicy, peanuty, cucumber side”.

“Sublimely juicy chicken with absurdly crunchy coating”“like KFC pimped to the max” with “must-have dips such as Kewpie mayo and Sriracha sour cream” – have won high ratings for this free-range chicken and sour cocktails duo in Haggerston and Covent Garden (and from September 2018 in Islington too). “It’s so good I can’t stop going back!”.

“Everything you could wish for in a crunchy-fried, tender, perfectly cooked chicken” gets a big thumbs up for this “really fun” Dalston joint (now with a Covent Garden branch); “accoutrements to die for” too (“surprisingly, the outstanding dish didn’t involve chicken – the amazing Sichuan aubergine stole the show”).

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
