Great food, quickly served. English is spoken by the staff, but pronunciation ....a lot of fun. Cash terms only. Reasonable prices.

Well known for their Hainanese chicken. Other dish-worthy items are its pork chop, chap cai and hei zou. Place is big but when it gets packed, it can be noisy with all the echo. Don't expect first class service, but it's food is 👍🏽

Ordered the white hainanese chicken rice, and it's tender and juicy! The mixed vegetables is good with nice sauce too. The ngioh hieng is crispy and good too. Pork chop is a little too dry and hard.
