This was my umpteenth visit over many years to this popular chicken rice restaurant. Eating there has always been an occasion to look forward to. This time we were in for a surprise! The service was perfunctory, but what came like a thud of disappointment was the taste of the sauces to go with the chicken rice. Both the Chilli... More

Paid $43.50 for 2 plates of rice, 2 drumsticks, 2 eggs, a plate of spinach, a glass of barley ice & a lime juice. Probably the most overpriced chicken rice ever (exclude those chicken rice served at hotels). This place is just so overly rated. The chicken rice doesn't even taste or smell like the genuine Hainanese chicken rice. Standard... More

I walked from Orchard MRT but it was a good walk. We ordered half chicken and scallops with green bean(?). The food was great as usual and i will always return to this place!

I've eaten here with my family since the early 1990s and this place is simply the best. My personal favourite is their rice which is so tasty you can have it on its own. I highly recommend visitors to Singapore to try out any of their outlets across the island.

Went here for early dinner with friend. At 18.00 already a short que. Wait for around 5 minutes to get a small table for two. Food simply delicious. Price is ok for a personal set menu.

Best chicken rice place ever! The place is always crowded at night so be prepared to wait. They also do takeout and delivery service.

When staying at Great World City and jet lagged this is a regular late night spot. Chicken rice is adequate but at 3am is tastes great.

It is still a go to place for most people looking for chicken rice, and the service is good, but they have become quite expensive.

When my friends visit India on business tours I take them out for dinners and when I visited Singapore they returned the favor by taking me out for lunch at this amazing outlet called Boon Toon Kee. It was my first experience and I also tagged along a friend of mine with me. Located at 425, River Valley Road in... More

The white chicken breast tasted so bad. The meat had some kind of weird taste, like those taste which is not fresh and perhaps frozen meat. The staff even messed up our order. We only ordered 3 dishes but the staff only sent us 2. It was not even full, perhaps only 20% occupancy during that time at 930pm. Not... More
