“Spin the wheel & see what you get”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

The first time we visited, the skin of the roasted chicked was perfect as it was just taken out from the roast machine. The second time we visited, the skin was soggy, typical of the kind you find at a foodcourt. That's why I gave "Spin the wheel' as my title.

“Good food but you will need patience communicating with staffs...”
Reviewed 2 February 2012

Again, this is one of those restaurants that I would often come back to... Safe to say, I do business with this establishment at least once a month.

The chicken rice here is dubbed as one of the best in the island - it is one of the must try dishes here I should say. The cereal prawn is also not too bad as well as their sauteed ginger beef.

Since this is a famous restaurant, you may encounter some queue time before you will be seated. So patience is needed here.

Speaking of patience, you definitely need those as the waitresses here can barely understand English. On my latest visit, I had to return 2 dishes as they were not the ones I ordered. In fairness to them though, they were very apologetic about their mistake.

Cost-wise, I would say it would be affordable (not as cheap as hawker food though) - roughly 10SGD per person if you order a dish each and this comes with drinks already.

If you are a tourist in Singapore with some extra time, a stop here for a meal would be nice - otherwise you may ought to just stay in the city center.

“Manage ur expectation”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

I would say that that the food are superb!!

Most peeps complain about service. This is a Chinese resto, so sit, order quickly, eat and go. Don't chat or browse the menu and ask (in English) for all the description. Of course they will not entertain that.
They're Chinese so they don't speak English well obviously.

I don't speak English. But I manage to go here n get a decent service.

My tips are:
1. Order packet of Rice+chicken (choose steam/boil, choose drumstick/bReast meat)
2. Or order half/whole chicken
3. Order ur veggie (toMiau or kangkong)
4. Order dumpling soup
5. Order your drink (lime juice/barley)

That's it.

If you want to order more or ask about the menu, I suggest u bring a translator.
