Overated given the hype and long queue. Chicken was cold, rice and veggies were good. Visit in quiet times or go to other hawker stalls, it's only plain steamed chicken so will probably be same taste and standard.

Managed to find the Hawker Centre which was a little difficult with all the construction going on. But the noise, the heat and the food was worth it. Fragrant rice, gelatinous chicken and the experience was complete. I'm no foody, so I can't tell a good chicken rice from a great one, but it was yum!! Went at 4:45 for... More

Tian Tian occupies two stalls in Maxwell market. There are two queues which you have to be aware. If you are going to order, go the the extreme right (near to the walk path) and queue up for your order to be taken. Once you have make payment, they will ask you to go to the left stall to collect... More

In side the Maxwell Food Center food stall. Relatively cheap chicken rice compared to restaurants. Although very tasty, could be better if more hot.

I had not understood the obsession with chicken rice until I tried this one. We got to the hawker market expecting a queue and were not disappointed! Although the queue was quite long it moved quickly, and within about 20 minutes we were enjoying our food. The chicken is tender, rice is wonderfully flavoured and the sauces provided sublime -...

When you arrive the Maxwell Food Center, one must focus and go straight to Stall 11 Tian Tian Hainenese Chicken Rice. (As there are so many other stalls offering similar or different kinds of food, it is very easy to get distracted.) To avoid a long queue at Tian Tian, please go there a bit earlier than noon. Simply order... More

We got there about 10 am and completely beat the rush. After about 15 minutes the line had exploded to what must have been at least an hour wait. The rice is so good just by itself, with chicken and the sauces it's a flavour bomb. Went back the next day too. There are certainly cheaper options but the small... More

It is near china town with easy accessibility. The long queue took me around 30 minutes to get to order & I looked back there was a longer queue, in the afternoon three o'clock. Its famous chicken rice was good enough because it is tender & juicy, and the flavor of the chicken was good as well as its sauce.... More

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.
