Polo Fried Chicken Is Said To Be Bangkok’s Best Fried Chicken?

Polo Fried Chicken ไก่ทอดเจ๊กี (โปโล), is well-known as Bangkok’s best fried chicken. Was it self-proclaimed, or was it an accolade bestowed by Thai people … who knows? But when it’s trumpeted as the best fried chicken, expectations run high.

The restaurant’s name in Thai is NOT Polo Fried Chicken. ไก่ทอดเจ๊กี, the restaurant name, translates to Gai Tord Je Gi, possibly the owner’s name.

Sweet and spicy sauce

We ordered half chicken 130 baht for sharing. Whole chicken is 260 baht, and if you want extra garlic, it’s chargeable at 20 baht. There are two dipping sauces available on each table: sweet sauce and spicy sauce.

Grilled pork

Kor moo yang (grilled pork) 70 baht is good with a good balance of fat and lean meat.

Somtum poo

Somtum poo (papaya salad with salted crab) 50 baht is a BIG thumbs down. The balance taste between sweet, hot, salty, and sour is off.

Tom zap moo

Tom zap moo (Thai spicy pork soup) 80 baht is also a let down. The balance is way off.

They are open from 7am to 10pm … Fried chicken so early in the morning at 7am? *faint*

So .. is this the BEST fried chicken in town? It could be … depending on your tastebud. But, no, not in my book.

Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.
