Best Buffalo Wings in London. There hot sauce is so tangy and spicy, and the blue cheese dip is the perfect combination.


Amazing wings. Fantastic friendly staff. The curly fries are awesome and the blue cheese dip to die for. LOVE IT !!


The wings are not only carnivorously crispy but the smothering of orange goodness are completely unique.
Bufallo wings are easy replicated and there are venues dotted around the capital that will serve them quite beautifully, but when it comes to something that is distinctively London I couldn’t think of anything better, there’s only one place you can chow down Woof Woof or Vincent Mango and that’s at OB.
And if you thought that wasn’t enough, under-tent heating and a brilliantly fun team turn this into a sort of glamping experience for food vans. Two thumbs up.


The best wings ever! The sauce is unbelievable. You must go and try these. The staff are brilliant to!


Real deal Buffalo wings! They make their own sauces (rather than shop bought stuff like most other places) and the wings are cooked to perfection every time - soft and fleshy on the inside, crispy and crunchy on the outside. Service with a smile too - always a friendly bunch!


I have been every Friday for the past year and it gets better every time. Its always so popular, the staff are friendly and work so hard. And then theres the wings, Orange Buffalo have the best wings in London!


This place is awesome. Great food, great staff, they deserve to win as they have worked so hard so make this venue a success.


Nice friendly staff and the wings along with the sauces the best you can find can't recommend enough. Need to try to appreciate just how good they are.


These wings are AMAZING! Top quality, always consistent, fries and dip to die for. I have moved out of the area and miss them like crazy!! These guys are the real deal!


Beyond ridiculously tasty wings! Home made and been HQ for the UK's best wings for over 4 years. Once you've had them once you're HOOKED! The service here and value is amazing! GOOD LUCK GUYS!


Killer Wings, Staff you can pop in and have a chat too. Proper neighbourhood spot.


Homemade chilli sauces, perfectly cooked wings and the coolest crew you could ask for make OB the bomb!


The best wings in London. Tangy, tasty, hot and delicious. The guys and gals at Orange Buffalo are friendly and fun.


RIDIC mouth watering sauces covering 'New York Style' fried wings. Their blue cheese is out of this world.

I've been on the lookout for a decent chicken wings establishment since I stopped travelling to the US for work. The Americans just dominate in this niche space, and in England they're always rubbish. Not so here at Orange Buffalo, where the wings are very good. They also have a stand at Winterville this year - which is where I tried them. Very impressed and the flavour was really good. Even the moderate ones were spicy though, so be warned. I'm too chicken (excuse the pun) to try The Snake In The Basket where one little viper awaits amongst lots of moderate ones. I dread to think how spicy that one is. Maybe hospital worthy. So if you like spicy, this is a good place to be.

I'm a huge fan of buffalo wings, and was thrilled to pass by this food stall on a little wander through Shoreditch one evening! Simple and straightforward, these guys specialise in chicken wings. Unfortunately though, I don't think they match up. The sauce wasn't as flavoursome or interesting really as others, and the wings themselves weren't particularly crispy. Still pretty good wings, and would happily eat a dozen for breakfast let alone for dinner, but were just lacking that extra spark! 


For me - BBQ Lab in Dinerama cinch the title as best buffalo wings in London so far!

Wow. Words do not do this place justice. If you are looking for authentic Buffalo wings -- look no further! I have lived in London for quite a few years and have not found better Buffalo wings anywhere in the City. 


Let's get one thing straight-- Buffalo wings are NOT meant to be atomic hot. It's the flavour of the sauce mixed with the heat of the sauce that makes a Buffalo wing a Buffalo wing. Orange Buffalo has this down pretty well :]


Highly recommend the Original or Woof Woof, or if feeling lucky 'Snake in a Basket' (one Viper wing mixed amongst the Originals). You will also not regret the seasoned curly fries.


Don't forget the Blue Cheese and celery! Also be ready to queue if you go around 1pm -- go a bit earlier and avoid the rush.
