Serving up the best of the best fried chicken with a side of R&B, a hefty portion of soul and laugh that makes the other chicks blush, Ma' Plucker is going to be your number one chicken stop.

While our waitress was fantastic- the food was very tasteless- the skin gravy tasted awful and I would not recommend it. The pulled chicken was tasty however but I found the food arrived very lack luster.

The food was good, the service was pretty average though. There is also not any comfortable seating. Overall though I enjoyed it, especially for the price.

The food was fantastic, the only thing that let it down was that the service seemed rather slow when the restaurant was rather quite empty on a Friday afternoon.

Halal chicken served here. Staff were very lovely and accommodating, the restaurant was great just a little hot in the summer heat- the staff were understanding about this and sat us near a window.

Not very professional had a table booked n reserved for 21:15 and when arrived they were closed and had to knock on the door and speak to someone inside who told me they were told to close early by management and they did not bother contacting myself to inform us of this either a email or a text or phone call and gave no compensation or concern for the trouble or upset they had caused

Food arrived 50 minutes after ordering (a hastened dash to the kitchen, food thrown on the plate), all food was cold or tepid. Vastly overpriced cold fried chicken.

Arrived at 11.55am, wasn’t open, with no visible signs of life so we didn’t hang around, we didn’t hang around as were with small children, but will try again!

Restaurante de producto (pollo) divertido y original. La comida estaba muy buena y debemos hacer mención a los postres, que estaban mejor de lo que esperábamos por las características del local. Recomendable

Awesome service! My second time here and food has not disappointed so far. Great value too. Staff are friendly and helpful. My only criticism would be that the dessert menu could be better. But I'd still keep coming here regardless!

Service was non existent. The food was massively overpriced. We were lied to about the price. And they gave us the wrong bill. It was a massive disappointment.

They couldn't find my booking and didn't keep me up to date on what they were dping to find a table, service was slow even though the place was pretty empty. The food was good but the burger bun was really dry and for a chicken restaurant selling 3 types of chicken, it was disappointing to find that they only had one else type available.

The place was empty but the service was really slow. Some time after ordering we were asked to change our food order as there were only 2 options available on the menu. I wouldn't return or recommend.

Food was decent, however was a little disappointed with the time it took for the food to come (40 mins+) waiter was nice and tried to accommodate with a snack however was generally to long.

Loved the place. Setting was really cool. Small but cosy and wasn't too busy around 6pm on a Saturday but then started filling up fast. My recommendation is to book because luckily we got there early but they had everything booked past 7pm and they had to turn people away.

Fried chicken was amazing, absolutely delish. Had the buttermilk coated one but now I wanna go back and try the rest of the menu....the Mrs wasn't complaining either although is now worried we're both gonna get fat real quick!

Very good fried chicken, but not exactly unforgettable. It was a _very_ busy Friday night and they very clearly didn't have enough staff. The poor staff they had on shift were struggling as well as very embarrassed to explain to diners they have ran out of chips and breast (in a fried chicken place?). Things took long to arrive and towards the end, closer to closing time they started flaking badly.
We were turned off at first, then came back trough the open-table app ten minutes later, so they didn't really have an idea if they had space or not.
The place itself is noisy and not particularly nice ambience. If you're looking for the new generation of upgraded fried chicken experiences london has to offer this place is lagging behind.
