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

This restaurant is located near to national library, which is a walking distance fr bugis mrt station. This is an old eatery that served both chicken rice and zhi cha. The serving is fast and efficient, since we only have 3 person, we have ordered small for all dishes and the portion is good. As for the price for city... More

Was taken here by our friend who grew up in Singapore. Arrived during lunch time which was quite busy but still able to get a table. Ordered half a chicken mixed (half steamed half crispy skin) fried prawn rolls, hainanese pork schnitzel, Kan Kong Belecan and three rice. Food came out quickly and was very good. Can definitely see why... More

We've eaten at Chin Chin the last several times we've been in Singapore. The staff have been accommodating and friendly. The food is delicious. We like the Hainanese pork, rice for chicken rice, and various vegetable dishes. And of course lime juice to drink.

As usual the chicken is as good as the olden days... maintaining standard and consistency. Pack with lunch crowd and worth the wait in a long Q

Enjoy coming here. Traditional feel. A little lost in time. Brings me back 20 years maybe... I like the fried hainanese pork chop. The salted egg prawn was so so. Black pepper beef was nice. Seafood soup ok. The chicken rice fragrant. On the whole, it was good. And very reasonably priced. 3 dishes, 1 soup and 3 chicken rice,... More
