I eat lunch here approximately 3 times a week. Great healthy/novel alternative. Great selection of around 8 fresh salads that change regularly. Salads include potatoes, noodles etc so can be really filling if you want. Think the poor reviews are due to people expecting another fast food joint – if you are after mass produced fried chicken there is a KFC a few doors down!
Tried Bird on a Wire for first time tonight, utterly disappointed, for a medium size meal $16, it consisted of 2 tablespoons of shredded chicken, a heap of green salad (which was nice, and warm soggy potato’s. Honestly 2 tablespoons of shredded chicken, what a joke. I was after a chicken meal, not a garden of salad and soggy potato meal! Won’t be going back!
Had the $15 1/4 chicken and salad. It was absolutely delicious. Staff was friendly, and food was quick – a perfect “too lazy to cook” option.
Small, dry chicken. Expensive. Really disappointing. Salad okay, expensive, nothing special. Would never go back, should have gone to the supermarket. Have to keep on filling this to get to 200 characters. A real shame, could have been avoid concept.
Neat idea which works really well. Had a whole chicken with the bread and a 1/2 and 1/2 salad (beetroot and coleslaw). The guys behind the counter were very nice and helpful when we were deciding on the flavours of chicken and which salads we wanted. Highly recommended for an easy tasty meal!
Dry chicken tonight. First time there and was expecting great things but chicken was dry. Should have gone to the supermarket instead. Salad and bread was great though.
We regularly pick up dinner for the family Bird On A Wire, and we love it – we get the ‘family feed’ which is enough for two adults and two kids, or an extra chicken if we have guests.
It is great quality and good value.
The bread is delicious as are all the sauces and bastes that come with the chicken – a welcome addition to the neighbourhood and alternative to cooking my own roast on Sundays!
Went to check out the new establishment last night. Chicken was nice n succulent, and the coleslaw tasted fresh. Good healthy meal. I had the jamaican jerk chicken. Think it would have been more flavorsome if it was cooked in the base rather then just painted on afterwards. However still tasted good … One last suggestion – serve the chicken on plates with a decent knife n fork. The boxes are way to hard to eat out of as there pretty flimsy .. as are the iceblock stick forks which broke twice while eating. All n all a good feed. The place has only opened for a week so i wish it all the best!!!!
