I have never had a bad experience with Kingsleys. They are best known for their chips and gravy so delicious and moreish. Friendly staff as well. Always hot and fresh.

It is what it is. Great chips, burgers have increasingly smaller pieces of chicken breast on them every time I go! Give it a year and you'll need a magnifying glass to find the chicken. Much better than KFC (IMHO)

This is tasty fat food. You cant get into the pub but you have your licence but cant cook, so you go to Kingsley's.

This place is great. Cooked fresh and they have given me several times while waiting free food. Price is good. Friendly staff with good parking. Croquettes are my favorite. God knows what's inside.

Kingsley's chicken is like god-sent for Canberrans, so I will tread my words carefully. As for me, Kingsley is a place for I-can't-be-bothered-to-cook type of food or let's-get-fat type of cuisine. Food is oily, chicken thigh was chopped into half so that the other half can be sold as another chicken thigh. Soggy chips, tasteless gravy (charged) and ridiculous deal.... More

Great chicken and chips, with a Southern influence. I was not that hungry and I was able to order one chicken fillet, chips and a croquet. Just hit the spot without costing the earth. We ate in, whereas the majority of the patrons ordered takeaway.

When I am in Canberra on business Kingsleys at Weston Creek is a must. The chips and gravy is simply amazing. The absolute best in Australia. Actually the world! I must say the fried chicken was a little hard and dry. But let's face it I am there for the chips not the chicken. Great value and great chips!
