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.
Dual language menu is available, in both English and Thai. This makes ordering easy peasy for foreigners.
They have aircond and non-aircond side, sit at the non-aircond side for authentic dining experience.
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.
Kor moo yang (grilled pork) 70 baht is good with a good balance of fat and lean meat.
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 (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.
