I'd heard about this stand at this Hawker stand at the Maxwell Food Centre from a Singaporean friend. I wasn't disappointed. I went a few times during my stay and my particular favourite was soy sauce chicken rice. and the cost - just 3 Sing dollars. Fantastic value.

Not the best Hainanese Chicken but pretty darn close. The chicken was both tender and moist, the best part of the meal was the rice. Never had chicken oil rice so flavorful, this place is worth a try. Don't expect good service and you'll have to wait in line before ordering. But for the money and taste, this meal was... More

As someone who grew up in Singapore, chicken rice is my favourite dish EVER. So of course I had to try it from the stall that gained its fame from both Gordon Ramsay and Anthony Bourdain! Unfortunately, I was severely disappointed. The chicken wasn't tender and the rice didn't taste consistent, even from the same plate (some parts with sauce,... More

Read from the internet it is one the best Hainan chicken in Singapore. Didn't have me disappointed at all. Up the standard and its just 6 SGD. Best Hainan Chicken I have ever had. Can't even find any comparables in Hong Kong.

It was good and some of the pieces was great while some of the pieces were just ok. The red sauce made the chicken more flavorful. I was little bit disappointed with the rice to be honest - it wasn't that flavorful and texture was just ok. Nevertheless I'm still glad I tried it.

We tried the Chicken Rice for which this place is famous but couldn't really tell the difference between their version and many others, always served with plain, tasteless rice. Also we are not fond of the fatty boiled chicken skin that comes with it.

Way over rated, unfriendly, dry, way to fatty chicken, sauce was bland and so was the rice. So happy I isn't have to wait more then 10 minutes in line.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
