Order the Hainan chicken rice, not the roasted chicken with the brown skin.Most prefer the thigh and leg part which for me is a bit raw. I prefer the breast meat, comes with soup.The chicken was tender... More

A Singapore friend suggested that we eat here. There is no air conditioning (a few ceiling fans around the large seating area) and they do not accept credit cards. It appeared that we were the only Americans in the restaurant at the time. The chicken and rice was outstanding! We ordered a whole chicken, half boiled and half roasted. Both... More

A vintage coffee shop atmosphere, filled with patrons enjoying good chicken rice and other Hainanese dishes. One of us had a extra bowl of rice and another packed more back.

The concierge at our hotel recommended that we visit a specific street close to our hotel and we ended up choosing Chin Chin. The place was very busy but we were seated at a table for two and the man who looked after us provided us with bi lingual menus. Our chap (who was, thankfully most proficient in English) looked...

Simply the best chicken rice I've had, price is very reasonable & the portion is generous. Avoid going there during lunch time as the places is filled with office workers nearby

Hainenese chicken rice - silky smooth - best in the area - stir fry broccoli with garlic to die for! Sitting at the sidewalk tables makes for a truly timeless and exciting food experience.

The canteen style eatery is located on the famous Purvis Street right behind Raffles Hotel with many high end restaurants. It is most famous for its chicken dish. So two of us ordered half a chicken and a veggie for lunch. The meat is tender and fresh, much tastier than that of Tian Tian, the more famous Hainanese chicken rice... More

We shared a small spicy Thai chicken eight dollars, and a thin seafood noodle five dollars. It was enough for us. With two lime juices, it came to 20 dollars. The menu price includes tax. Tasted good. The place was pretty full, seemed to be a lot of locals. We spoke to a couple who lived round the corner and... More
