Time Out says

Ever had Korean fried chicken doused in a malatang sauce, cream cheese or curry powder?

Chicken V has one of the longest and silliest fried chicken menus in Sydney. Do you want your fried chicken doused in honeyed butter? How about a numbing malatang sauce, seasoned with curry, topped with cream cheese or lathered in “crazy hot” sauce? We’re not going to say this is the best, juiciest Korean chicken in Sydney, but it’s probably the most fun – well, maybe the second most fun, after Goobne.

There are two game plans here, and which one you choose depends on whether you want as many flavours as possible or a better quality experience. The most economically efficient option is two rainbow sets with a few substitutions (the staff should be happy to do this unless it’s particularly busy). You’ll be going through ten or more flavours and just as many emotions, but what you may find lacking is freshness out of the fryer – they can’t cook all the different styles simultaneously.

For the better quality chicken experience, get individual servings of your flavour of choice and make sure you’ve opted for pieces on the bone – it may be require getting your hands greasy (there are gloves for those who wish to abstain), but the bones provide flavour and texture, increasing the chances you get a hotter and juicier cut.

The sides and non-fried chicken mains are nothing to write home about, so stick to cheesy corn or chips (potentially with cheese, too) – and a few beers, of course. 

NB The popular chain also has outposts in Eastwood, Lidcombe, Strathfield and Belmore.
