  • Clearly there are some aspects of owning (albeit temporarily

  • Artfully arranging my dinner and ensuring we were sat in the best lit table in the restaurant for the best possible results

  • Entirely derivative but whether or not there are a million other places just like it is the kind only jaded bloggers like me worry about

  • Buffalo wings were slightly less impressive they'd used the same batter style coating as for the larger pieces

  • Meaning there was quite a high crunch to flesh ratio but the glaze

  • On closer inspection it turned out they all and I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say every single chip in the entire portion were horribly discoloured

  • So while there are certainly things to enjoy at Bird if you look hard enough

  • At least better than Clutch up the road but then so is the Ebola virus so that's hardly a recommendation but if the height of your aspiration is just to make money off trendspotting

  • The clear winner was the honey ginger

  • The gochuchang was good but not quite as crispy

  • The buffalo wings were a bit of an anti climax

  • The only criticism would be that the cashews were not toasted

  • Since the buffalo wings came with blue cheese sauce and the other wings didn't need any extra flavouring or moistening

  • Innocuously sitting under the heading 'sandwiches' this beast is anything but

  • Even the description makes it sound like an ordinary chicken burger but with waffles instead of a bun

  • In fact it is a double hitter behemoth

  • What first attracted me to Bird was not its chicken but its Doughnut Hatch

  • I was almost cross at how big it was there should be a warning

  • If I had ordered that just for myself there is no way in hell I could have finished it

  • The problem came when I tried to eat anything else as I was completely full

  • Stodgy amazingness that was my half of the waffle burger

  • The waffle is savoury and chewy

  • The chicken is moist and juicy

  • The only thing I would say is that it claims to have hot sauce

  • The chicken wings are a really decent size

  • The chicken seems of good quality with nicely crisped skins

  • T particularly memorable but they were tasty enough

  • The ranch sauce we ordered alongside the wings was a little insipid and thin &ndash

  • I think Bird (Hoxton) is tops and really well priced

  • I headed East to meet up with Emma and her friend Ziggy

  • Bird has fried chicken everything but their speciality is chicken and waffles

  • The waffles are savoury cheddar and onion ones

  • Sandwiching a juicy piece of fried chicken and bacon with hot sauce and syrup

  • One waffle burger was enough for three people to share in fact we still struggled to finish everything

  • The wings were a good size (free range too so you know) and the best kind of messy the finger licking good kind

  • Chopped up pieces of boneless chicken thigh were served with crunchy cucumber sticks and spring onions

  • The restaurant had filled up and was buzzing with the after work crowd it looked like we had gotten there at a good time

  • Our bill for three people was a reasonable £

  • I really enjoyed the music they were playing last night

  • Had a great conversation with one young man who had cool long hair

  • It was the best decision he had made

  • I like how the chicken is free range and bought from local British farms

  • The Mu Shu Crispy Fried Chicken was very dry and disappointing I would not recommend it

  • I was glad to see this was on their menu

  • I Finished off with an Ice Cream Doughnut Sandwich

  • The result is delightful

  • They source quality British ingredients that are delivered daily

  • I kept it simple with two fried chicken pieces

  • Juicy and tender with very crunchy

  • Chillies and cheese topped with breadcrumbs

  • Mix and match glazes and sauces are designed to complement each other so get advice on which ones to pick

  • The buffalo glaze and buttermilk ranch sauce were the perfect tangy

  • We rounded things off with an iced doughnut ice cream sandwich &ndash

  • T ventured to Shoreditch in a while before Bird but with its top notch food

  • In creating the American diner feel with their chicken and waffles

  • There is just something about fried chicken which is so special that to explain it is impossible

  • It's that something which leaves you with the warmest feeling of comfort and wanting more

  • Exploded into a global phenomenon with every culture having their own variation of deep fried poultry

  • Is that arising from the southern states of America where chicken is tossed in spiced flour before being deep fried in lard

  • The menu at Bird read like a homage to the dish with seemingly every method of consumption being covered

  • I went for something a little different namely the Mu Shu crispy fried chicken of fried chicken thigh with chinese pancakes

  • O corn pudding was also ordered for the table

  • The hallmark of well made fried chicken is crisp well seasoned skin which is rendered of excess fat and in this respect

  • The cheddar and onion waffles were super thick

  • Stodgy and lacked any real distinctive flavour apart from the maple I layered upon it and the Mu Shu I think missed the mark with chicken cut so thin and fried so dry

  • Around the time I became wise to the fact KFC was truly a horrific place of despite it being a family favourite

  • The design is very bright and colourful and the waitress are very aware of their customers so you get seen quickly

  • The wait for the food was 15 20 mins which is fine because it comes out fresh

  • Waffles had vegetables and the chicken was nicely fried 3 by the way the wifi password is

  • Especially as they were offing a 50% off during their soft launch

  • The chicken is described as &lsquo

  • The quality of the actual chicken is what makes a huge difference here

  • As the chicken is coated and cooked in corn flour (with other &lsquo

  • The diners are young and cool but not that super trendy big beard and top knot set that you can get

  • All of our ingredients are of the highest quality

  • D be surprised how rare that is when it comes to fried chicken

  • What we loved and what sets it apart from the typical industrial feel are the liberal splashes of primary colours

  • What we liked best were the brightly coloured BIRD logo patterned Formica topped tables and the backlit cinema style specials board &ndash

  • Blackcurrant and lemonade was a simple mix giving a rich

  • Almost sweet biscuit (or scone) is the perfect partner for the crispy skinned chicken

  • S off to the other side of the world for what was Saff&rsquo

  • There is absolutely nowt wrong with this burger but something has to come last

  • The Fresh cut fries with house seasoning

  • The Korean cucumbers with rice vinegar

  • Pepper flakes sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds was by far my favourite

  • Their House slaw was very light

  • Maybe what is needed to counterbalance all the fried chicken

  • Believe it or not I was too full to eat my peanut butter cream variety

  • S lunch time menu is excellent value especially as all their chicken are 100% free range

  • The chicken is second to none

  • If it wasn't it would have probably been one of the best things I've tasted

  • Free range chicken and a simple menu was a pretty good combination

  • We started with a whole bunch of wings in various sauces and glazes (including one which was especially chilli) and things were good

  • The service was a little hit and miss

  • There were a few errors made in the order that were quickly addressed

  • I have to be honest I was very disappointed with the chicken here

  • The batter was too hard and crispy and the size of the chicken was on the small size

  • Course there are other choices on the menu

  • The food here was not worth it in my option

  • I have no idea how places like this are still open

  • Halal status is confirmed via messages and social media

  • I ordered a chicken burger which was pretty ok and lovingly served with a knife through it

  • That revelation was stark and eye opening

  • That not all chicken and chips are created equal

  • Think American diner with just the right amount of East London character and you can imagine yourself here exposed brick

  • Served on two plates it was a little shocking to discover this was actually just one portion which they&rsquo

  • This thing was quite epic

  • Free range birds and a chicken glaze which makes your face screw itself up with pleasure/pain aren&rsquo

  • Some of our favourites are available including Patty &

  • A newish restaurant and takeaway offering free range chicken served friend with a variety of glazes and sauces

  • I anticipated a delay and they were professional in calling

  • Secondly the chicken breast was dry and tough in texture

  • The one saving grace was the pimento padron

  • The kind of quick where you know the chef has taken his time to whip up something awesome for you with tender loving care

  • S the ludicrous equivalent of ordering a burger with a diet coke

  • Our second stomach was saying GET THE CHERRY SUNDAE

  • The stomach that had just consumed all that chicken was protesting back saying YOU BETTER CHECK YOSELF BEFORE YOU WRECK YOSELF

  • (Please re read that with a tough guy American accent

  • Service is great with the lovely stuff

  • When there is chicken wings involved there is no way in hell you are going to look pretty while eating and Bird is no exception

  • My preference was the buffalo glaze

  • Their waffle burger is also a bit of beast

  • The chicken was so crispy and none greasy it was perfect

  • My friends had the full waffle burger with bacon and cheese which looked great but way too much to eat for one person

  • The donut unfortunately was dry but the icing was nice

  • The restaurant was very quiet so our booking was almost unnecessary but the space filled up more as we ate

  • The chicken itself was fried to perfection &ndash

  • I also picked up some fries with my dish definitely a solid choice

  • Well cooked and delicious but still paling into comparison to the wonder that was my main dish

  • Quite honestly you probably don't need sides doing this but the variety of glazes for the chicken wings is impressive

  • I like the concept of Bird (Hoxton) but the execution was poor when I went

  • The best part to the whole thing was the starters which was wings in a Korean sauce

  • The mains which was fried chicken and waffles was very disappointing

  • The waffles were dry and the chicken was very crispy but no real taste

  • What better way is there to start the New Year than with fried chicken

  • (That is a rhetorical question in case you were wondering)

  • As some of the restaurants I work with had been approached to join them

  • My food of choice was chicken from Bird

  • Chicken Wings BBQ Spicy This was really nice

  • Waffles A desert waffle filled with fried chicken pieces and maple syrup on the side

  • I found the chicken was a big chicken leaving lots of plain meat without fried skin to accompany it

  • The skin itself too was quite bland and boring

  • The worst part was the dish was actually luke warm and not hot as I would have liked it in temperature

  • Korean Fries These were nice and cheesy and spicy

  • Korean Salad This was a handful pieces of sliced cucumber in pickle sauce

  • Bird (Hoxton) wasn't the worst neither was it the best

  • I had the boneless tender chicken and I did finish it all because the sauce they gave it with was amazing

  • The chicken was dry by itself and had no flavour

  • I also bought the korean chips which had a special chilli sauce and cheese over it with chilli ontop and it tasted exactly like spicehut chips

  • The burger is REALLY BIG vomes in 2 slices

  • I strongly advise if u are with someone and ain't very hungry to slit it between each other

  • The first slice was very nice with a unique taste

  • 2 the second slice just made you sick and was too filling

  • The Korean fried were really cool and different

  • This is one of the best desserts I have had

  • One thing I noticed for this year is the rise of restaurants offering an iftar menu

  • S actually amazing to see so many restaurants in London are catering to this community

  • S from a delicious chicken restaurant called BIRD and you get to enjoy it together with some other fellow halal foodies &ndash

  • 8 for fried chicken that is no different to your local chicken shop at £

  • First time trying this fried chicken and it was very satisfying

  • The waffles were light and crispy and soft inside

  • It also comes with a sort of whipped butter which you can spread on your waffles

  • Washed down with a beer and with a side of pickles
