Every time i'm in Singapore, i will always have my chicken rice fix here. Chicken is soft and juicy, Service is good, fast and efficient. Menus are listed in English. The service staff speaks good english as well. Worth a trip, and once you've tried it, you'll be back for more !!

Frequent this eatery. Famous for their "kampong chicken" which translates to free range chicken ( not farmed broilers). Smaller but a lot more tender and because it isn't fried nor deep-fried, texture matters. The essential condiments - chili, garlic chili, ginger, black sauce - are good.

We chose to sit inside in the aircon (not an option at Tian Tian). The lady who served us spoke perfect english so do not fear... More

Very nice. One of the top 3 chicken rice stall that my family will revisit again and again. When kids are hungry, they will ask for 5 star chicken rice!!! Personally, I really like the call-order-pickup service where u simply call their hotline and make your order with your car plate number. They will bring to your car when u... More

Was treated by local friends. Signature chicken is very tender n softer than I expected. I was amazed by other special dishes. Such as fried dough with fish meats, sambo vege, salty egg with fried shrimps and three types eggs with vege. It's mainly Chinese dishes and transformed into Singaporean style. Better check on photos I took. I recommend this... More

If you plan to visit Singapore, paying a visit to Katong area is a smart idea. Dozens of small restaurants and shops in a typical area near to the airport and not far away from the city center. If this is the place where you find yourself for lunch or dinner this small restaurant is a good option. Good food,... More

For chicken rice lovers, this should not be a miss. Cosy environment, service is quick and prices are affordable. Paid around $25 for half a chicken (roasted & white mixed), one drink and 4 plate of rice.
