KFC Japan offering all-you-can eat fried chicken every Friday for the rest of summer

Since 2014, KFC Japan has been periodically blessing us with all-you-can-eat fried chicken offers. But as much as we love the Colonel for his Kentucky-fried generosity, we have had one complaint.

Last time KFC offered unlimited chicken, it did so on Tuesdays, and before that, Wednesday was the magic day. But a meal of limitless deep-fried bird is like a workout of heavy weightlifting – you need a recovery day afterwards. No one is able to work or study at optimum efficiency as they digest/bask in the afterglow of such a glorious meal, and so this summer KFC is answering our prayers by offering its all-you-can-eat deal on Fridays.

The promotion kicks off July 20 at 218 participating branches across Japan. Forty-seven of those are in Tokyo, with the most centrally located being the KFC branches at Shibuya Dogenzaka, Akihabara, Asakusa, Ikebukuro, Ikebukuro Nishiguchi, Tokyo Dome City LaQua, Nakano, Hacchobori, Sangenjaya, and Eifukucho.

Every Friday between July 20 and August 31, 1,380 yen gets you all the original recipe fried chicken you can eat for 45 minutes, plus as many orders of curly-cut French fries, biscuits, and soft drinks as you’d like t go with it. The price for elementary school-age kids is discounted to 980 yen, and children younger than that eat for free when accompanied by a paying full-price customer (one free child per customer, with additional children eating for 680 yen each).

KFC is offering the all-you-can-eat deal for “dinner time,” which it defines as any time past 4 p.m. A complete list of participating locations can be found here, with Tokyo options consisting of:

Aeon Mall Tamadaira no Mori, Aeon Minamitsuna, Aeon Shinonome, Akabane Higashiguchi, Akihabara, Asakusa, Beans Akabane, Eifukucho, Futakotamagawa, Hachioji, Hachioji Horinouchi, Hachioji Owadamachi, Hacchobori, Hikarigaoka, Hirai, Honisshoku, Hoya, Ikebukuro, Ikebukuro Nishiguchi, Itoyokado Hikifune, Itoykado Kiba, Kabe, Kamata, Kasai, Kumegawa, Koenji, Lalaport Tachikawa Tachihi, Minowa, Mita, Mori Town Akishima, Nakano, Nihonbashi Ningyocho, Nishi Hachioji, Nishi Haijima, Obirin Gakuen-mae, Ogikubo, Oji, Sangenjaya, Shibuya Dogenzaka, Sunpop Machiya, Tachikawa, Tachikawa Minamiguchi, Takashimadaira, Takenotsuka,

Tokyo Oyama, Toyocho, Tokyo Dome City LaQua

Reservations are required, and can be made in person at participating branches or over the phone. If you’re asking your hotel’s concierge or front desk staff to help you, the phrase you’ll need for “all-you-can-eat KFC” is Kentakkii tabe houdai/ケンタッキー食べ放題.

How about Okinawa?

Last time I visited KFC was in winter in Sapporo. It was pretty good with just a 2 piece set and iced tea. The Japanese version is less salty than the American one.

I couldn't eat that if you paid me.

Kfc is terrible in Japan, not sure why but the chicken is bland and the fries are nothing like what they should be. The burgers are tiny and dry also.

I've eaten it a few times here. The sandwiches are pretty safe, but any time I eat the regular chicken I regret it immediately afterwards. I don't know how they do it, but it's even oilier than its NAmerican counterpart, and most of the chicken skin's taste is lost. As for all you can eat... no thanks.

The J consumer is probably unaware about the possibility of chlorine washed US hormone chicken chunks used at these joints :)

My lunchtime is around 4pm, lol

The J consumer is, however, very aware that KFC chicken is finger-lickin' good.
