“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).
