Absolutely, the BEST Hainanese Chicken Rice in town! We eat here all the time on our 3-4 annual visits to KK. Masterfully done and the other offerings are also on par.

Cheap restaurant. No hassle. Serve my favourite chicken and rice. I'm not a food lover but the food is good enough. Serve a variety of other choice too.

Okay chicken rice if you are in Gaya street (although not the best in KK) and friendly staff. I have also had their Tauran Mee which was tasty but i have no idea how authentic it was.
