KFC lost its credibility!


One day before keeping fast, family and me planed to go to KFC for fasting. I called and checked their timings. We all stuffed ourselves in one car and reached there, while driving 30km per hour. We entered and asked for the deal. The deal included two zingers with no drinks nothing. Anyways we ordered the deal and waited for it to desperately as were feeling quite hungry. We waited and waited after 30 minutes or so we got our order.

We quickly attacked the burgers as I took one bit it felt as if I am eating a two-day-old food. Burgers were not hot enough, actually not even warm, and it was hard to break the chicken. We called the waiter and complained about it. He come with a dull face, took the tray few minutes later he brought the tray back but with same old burgers, frozen and hard. The attitude of the waiter was so harsh that we did not call him again and left the restaurant. We had to pay for the order and later we were cursing each other for the idea.

KFC, I remember, when opened in Islamabad provided such fresh and hot food but now it has lost its credibility. The deals are no good and the quality is worse. They turn on the volume of television so loud that one can hardly hear his own voice. If you ask them to slow down the volume, you would be the lucky one if they listen to your request.

The management is not working good, bathrooms are dirty I have experienced it a lot that when ever I go to use their washroom it is always full of dirty water and no water in the tap. I come out vomiting…yucky!

The people who franchise such good and popular fast food restaurants should keep check and balance and before that, the company owner should give franchise to those whom they think are capable of maintaining it.

Now I would prefer eating at home, the parathas, milk, butter and eggs…Yummy!
This Ramadan will make me fat :(

    PS. You are right, one day on way to work I took along a zinger burger and it was so damp and crappy.

    They gave me a new one the next day after I threatened them to defame them at my office.

    I agree, You have a point!

    Ghalia, you seem to be getting too many raw deals these days. Get it? raw?

    Perhaps you should go after iftar when it is less busy?

    yea ! i had the same experience too. it was aftari time and me with my buddies got an ‘all you can eat’ package. and the waiter dudes dint bring us coke! i was like : i gave 350 fer this :S and then a pal went to the waiter guy and snatched both of the pepsi jars he held in his hand :P

    but i guess they’ve got alot of customers coming in ramadan and they hafta rush alot. maybe thats the reason why they make crappy food.

    its good you took a pic ;)

    From your experience, it sounds as if KFC Islamabad is total crap food.

    Things are quite different here in Lahore; matters related with cleanliness and effciency were real bad but all has changed for better after they renovated a few years back…

    I prefer Rayyan’s over KFC anyways … the one opposite to OPF-F-8 … great :)

  9. Talha (unregistered) on October 18th, 2006 @ 2:37 am

    Rayyan’s is definitely better than KFC, one reason being one free re-fill of coke. But the fact remains that Rayyan is cholesterol-full in contrast to KFC. :)

  10. Asma (unregistered) on October 18th, 2006 @ 1:31 pm

    Cholestrol filled is it??? … Ok I dont like the melted cheesy thing so I have that stuck out from my burger usually but I really love their roll parathas and weggies … they’ve lots more to offer … with cartoon network … hehhehe :D

    Honey, please learn to speak/write english…there are atleast 30 gramatical errors in your short essay and the comments…
    I am embarassed for you…
    But, I am glad you’re trying to write. I just hope that through the experience your english improves or someone points out obvious errors. What really bugs me is that you say “me and someone”, honey, in proper english it’s “Someone and I”.
    Good job and good luck!

    Forget the grammer and spellings rant. Every author has their own style. Ghalia’s post are the most active in terms of comments, and discussions, so we cannot ignore that fact. Keep up the good work Ghalia :-), don’t let the English “handicap” bog you down, and keep posting on such spicy topics.

  13. Sameer Durrani (unregistered) on October 18th, 2006 @ 4:26 pm

    I agree that Rayans is a lot lot lot better than KFC.. and you know what you get a 25% discount after 10:30 pm…i am not sure wether its still valid in Ramadan or not..but atleast in normal days, they have this offer and you can get a hesper burger (equivalent of Zinger burger) in Rs. 80 only.. aint that koooooooooooooooooool….

    Uff..Rayans.. its so yummy…

  14. Ghalia Aymen (unregistered) on October 18th, 2006 @ 9:18 pm

    TALHA: ok next time i will add the category.

    YAHYA, USTAD RUSTAM: when i went there the whole restaurant was empty only two or three families were present. how can we expect that they will offer good food after IFTARI when it is full?

    HUSSAIN MUBARAK: they are working there by their own will. they knew it that burden will be all over their shoulders. customers are more important than the workers.they are earning because of us. it is agin a manegment problem if they are not paid well.

    ZINDA DIL: hey dude if u r zinda dil than live with it and thanks for correcting me i will try my best not to make mistakes next time:) happy now?

    1967: hey pal thank you very much for boosting up my moral. tusssi geo hazaar saal:)

    I added the category for this post.

    Some advantages of being the “captain”


  16. Asma (unregistered) on October 19th, 2006 @ 1:09 pm

    not so Zinda Dil : well stop giving lectures on English … If your beloved English speaking people (I mean the ones with Eng as their mother tongue) can twist and turn ours typical stuff as names then can’t we harass them (^_^) a bit with our English language typos … as far as Stuff’s good and the very famous *Concept is Clear* …. Never mind if there really is any English grammatical or typo mistake…!

    Keep on rocking Ghalia …!

    ((Do I look Childish :”> backfiring like this – Never mind))

    You appear to be not just childish but very defensive and very willing to accept mediocrity. If you are going to write in a public domain, why not try to do a better job? Where is the virtue in accepting poor grammar, poor spelling and punctuations and really really inane posts. Why not accept criticism as constructive and try to get better? I would say that anything that is worth doing is worth doing well.

  18. Ghalia Aymen (unregistered) on October 20th, 2006 @ 2:06 am

    hello anon who said i am not accepting criticism. i do appreciate those who remind me of my mistakes. i dono what is your problem but mine is that i am not that good in english.

    please find yours.thanks:)

  19. Original-Anon (unregistered) on October 20th, 2006 @ 4:09 am

    Ghalia, sorry that comment was meant to respond to Asma’s; was not directed to you. My apologies.
