It's a bit pricey, but the portions suffice. The chicken rice and lobster laksa is always good to order and so is the salted egg chicken.

The Chatterbox usually does not take reservation, but the Concierge at our hotel managed to book a table for us. The award winning Hainanese Chicken Rice is absolutely delicious, especially with the chili sauce and ginger sauce. The lobster laksa and coconut rice are also tasty. The services are very nice. They promptly brought us plates and bowls when you... More

Good service, food was good and came in pretty fast. Price was fair to be at the hotel, suitable for a quicker dinner when you just want to eat.

despite the plentitude of chicken rice stalls in Singapore, despite other Bib Gourmand awards, praises by star celebrities like Anthony Bourdain, or even recommendations of the best chicken rice stalls by Singaporean friends, for some very very odd reason, the best chicken rice for me is the one served by Chatterbox inside the Mandarin Hotel on Orchard Road. I can't... More

Had late dinner at chatterbox with a friend. Ordered their famous chicken rice and herbal BA GUA TEH. Food wise was ok and the service was so-so maybe due to the large crowd. A good place for lunch & dinner, small group gathering and family dinner. Dr E. Chow

It is very seldom that I write a negative review,...but here is one. I remember Chatterbox when I first courted my misses over 28 years ago. So we decided to revisit this on our recent trip to Spore (01/17). However the food was below average. Their signature dish, the Mandrind Chicken Rice was only fair,...the special fried rice waz poor.... More

Had a lovely lunch here. Surprised at prices as not mentioned by other reviewers. So I'm going to note that its not the cheapest place to eat (if you want cheap and cheerful go to a hawkers market). But the food was delicious and service efficient and friendly. Lobster laksa is one of the best laksas I've had. Also took... More

Staying in Orchard Road

Neighbourhood Profile
Orchard Road
Shopping is a national pastime for Singaporeans, and after a visit to Orchard Road it’s easy to see why. This seemingly endless boulevard boasts a dizzying selection of shopping centres. From bargain basement foragers to designer label big-spenders, there is something for everyone. For those just browsing, there are countless restaurants, food courts, and cinemas, as well as the odd street entertainer to keep you amused. Most of the malls are connected by underground walkways, offering a break from the sun on a hot day. Bring a credit card and some comfortable shoes, and plunge into the excitement.
