    I worked there when this place started in 2007

    I miss Bon Bon Chicken!! I worked there behind the counter for a few months when the place started! The chicken is great if you are willing to spend around $25 for a bucket of chicken!

    Don't order delivery!

    Food took 1hr to arrive (seems quiet common), when it did, half the order was missing the other half was cold. I called several times but got nothing, so I decided it was worth the 2 block walk to go down there for an explanation. The lady behind the counter told me the phone was switched off because they close at 9pm, it was 9:30pm and I was standing inside the restaurant, there were people eating! They couldn't remake the order because the kitchen was closing, I asked to speak to the manager and was told didn't speak english. anyway, long story short, I didn't get a refund and will never be going back, shame, because the chicken it pretty good.

    Waited 2 hours. Charged but no food

    Placed an order for delivery after eating here (thoroughly enjoyed the food) and two hours later no food arrived. I had to call and asked for 10% off or something (since it would be another 20 minutes) and was offered a free drink. No thanks!

    Greasy & overrated

    I ordered the spicy chicken bowl, which was so spicy it masked any flavor of the chicken. And I love spicy food. The wings had a nice crunchy outside, but they were extremely greasy. I did not find them flavorful either and I ordered the soy garlic. I was not impressed at all by this place.

    oh no, never again.

    BonChon Chicken on John St in financial district. A Wall Street banker, I should have never been subjected to this foul fowl in the first place, and establishments like this should be confined to the area behind Port Authority Bus Terminal. Upon entering, a warm greeting from the barkeep. Decor is spartan, clean. We ordered a large meal deal: 4 drumsticks, 12 wings, 1 side fries and kimchi coleslaw. We sit, 10 minutes later they holler your number and you get your food from the counter. Fries, delicious. Kimchi? Looked like a combination of thousand islands dressing, string and jello. Traded it back for more fries. Chicken comes on wax paper placed on plastic wicker bowls. Already feeling like I'm at the prison cafeteria with the trays and the yelling out the order numbers, and this disagreeable chow presentation confirms it. The “chicken” at Bon Chon visually looks like faded plastic, wax, or old plumbing parts. It has the shape of chicken, though, so we tucked in. The sweet and soy tasted like honey and burnt toast. The spicy tasted like honey and that cheap hot sauce they give you in little packets at Mexican-Chinese restaurants. The chicken appears to be wrapped in a cartilage membrane of some sort which deflates a little when you break the seal on it to reveal a steaming little finger of grey meat inside. I focused on the fries and tried to determine if my fellow diners were humans or from that intergalactic bar in Star Wars. No plates, so we divvied up the Culture section of my WSJ and ate off of that. Meal complete, you bring your tray to a large garbage receptacle where you are reminded with a sign NOT to throw out your plastic wicker device. So now here I am at the trash can, a banking executive, emptying these filthy little bowls full of half eaten chicken clumps and bones, wax paper, soiled bits of newspaper... Taking out the garbage was the only honest work I did all day, and it sure didn't feel as good as my grampa told me. Not that price is an object, but the food was pretty cheap. One-up was being able to enjoy my delicious orange Fanta from a real glass with ice - the barkeep even gave me a scoop of cold refreshing ice. The girl working the counter was a real doll, another one-up. Such nice people that I will never, ever, see again.

    Delicious Chicken at a Price

    This chicken is absolutely fantastic. Savory, unique flavor made me want more. Then I saw the prices. If you're willing to fork over ~$40 for a bucket of chicken (rather than buying 2 at a cheaper, greasier, less memorable joint as I probably would) then this is a great place.
