So there’s been a fair bit of noise around about Michelin stars being handed out in a flourish to Asian food Hawker stands. We tried this Singapore food stand … it was the first in Singapore to get a Michelin star…we were not so impressed...taste wise, although chicken was extremely tender (pork was chewy and sauce nahhh). SG$4.50 a plate. Wouldn’t bother going back. But when I think of the magnificent New Zealand restaurants and only three have Michelin stars … and anyone who has dined at The Grove, Sidart or French Cafe just knows the massive time, effort and $ to keep these restaurants at the level they are.More

Yes it's sweet the sauce so tasty. Chicken was ok but no diff from any hawker stalls. For $6.80 for dish it's ok to try but i can get 2-3 x more and just as good if not better back home in Canada. Just check...off bucket list for Singapore and order 1 for the hell of itMore

Tasty, not as expected for a Michelin suggestion. Too much time waiting on the queue on a Friday evening. I would recommend it, to live the experience

Chicken was average. Cashier was plain rude. Staff were busy chatting since they did not need serve customers. The staff was so impatient with calling the customer's number. Just keep pressing and pressing. NEVER coming again. There are many options in Singapore. Dont get scam.

The chicken was tender, moist, and easily the best chicken we have had in the past couple weeks. The rest of the food was "just OK," which surprised me for a Michelin Star restaurant. However, I would go back again just for the chicken.

It is a cheap food restaurant with a Michelin star, the staff is a bit rude with tourists, they do not have much patience, especially the cashier, but you eat very well and it has nothing to do with the chef who very kindly came...out and took some photos with usMore

Chicken was tender and juicy, but the noodles tasted hard and food served a bit cold. Apple tofu very nice, pork so so only. Overall still didn't meet my expectation. Hope can improve the standard and the service, otherwise quite difficult to get back the...Michelin star.More

So I cheated- I had it delivered to me via the Grab app. Food arrived in good time, I didn’t have to wait as long as with other restaurants. Super awesome food, really enjoyed it, very yummy. Will definitely order again before I leave.

Sadly very overrated, chicken was even undercooked, a little but red. $5 seems cheap but this type of meal would be worth $2,5/$3 in any other hawker center. Great marketing though!

I appreciate Michelin Starred eateries. But... the food here is so.. average.. it really puts the spotlight on Michelin's credibility on awarding stars to establishments that are not their usual fare, like French or Italian. Honestly, you could blindly pick any other hawker selling the...same thing and you'd have a decent chance of having a similar or better experience.More

Had tried Hawker Chan when it used to be at Funan and found it very average. However when I was serving my SHN this year, a friend dropped off some goodies among which was Hawker Chan noodles and extra chicken. As there was loadsa food...to eat we only had the HC stuff a few hours later. Texture of the noodles was still very good and it was very tasty. Decided to visit the original stall when I had a chance. We went not too long after the stall opened so there was a queue but not unmanageable and we didn't have to wait long to get the food. The menu was a bit confusing in terms of add ons and we went with the recommendation of the staff which was helpful as otherwise we might have ended up with too much food. The noodles were very good as always, the roast meat wasn't special & while the flavouring of the chicken was good, this was only on the skin rather than infused in the meat. While the overall price was reasonable, the veg was a bit pricier than other places we had been to. All in all, the braise flavour is really good but it's lacking on the meat of the chicken. Is it worth queueing for? Hmmmm....maybe up to 15 or 20 mins. Any more, I am not sure!More
