If you are looking for alternatives to the western fast food that are in town (Sugar Bun, KFC and pizza at Kampung Seberang), another halal chicken place has landed in Sarikei and opened on CNY's eve (2008). The colorful fast food restaurant is situated near Sarikei Wharf Terminal 2 in the road next to Bank Road. (No. 22A Jalan Abdul Rahman)
This is a franchise of Chicken King from Johore Bahru's Basic Popular Sdn Bhd and it already has a branch in Miri. There's a delightful al fresco dining area that you can enjoy the cool river air in the evening (open from 10am to midnight everyday). Personally I have not eaten in this fast food place because I'm not into western fast food. When I'm in town, I always go for local delicacies and home cooking. If you have tried this place, please comment on the food.
The inside of the place is clean and air conditioned. The staff are uniformed and the menu includes fragrant rice, chicken chops, NZ fish, boneless steak burger, boneless mushroom chicken steak and deep fried chicken. there's this item in the soft drink menu: a 1-litre jug of pure fruit juice for RM4.80.
