Had a simple lunch before heading to airport. The roasted chicken meat was tendered. The tofu with chili was nicely done. You can return the wet tissue if you never use, they will remove from the bill.

One of Singapore's best! Choose outside seating and you'll eat just like locals do. Tried their Singaporean Chilli Crab, it's so tasty and delicious. You can request the spiciness of your chilli crab. Best paired with 'Mantou' (fried bun). Also tried their Chicken Rice and...More

It is the best Hainanese chicken rice in Singapore for me. As the rice is full of chicken fragrant and the chicken is soft and juicy. And anther very important ingredient is the soya source used. But the price is on the high side.

We were taken to Five Star by a couple who live in Singapore. We left them to order after taking account of anything we did not want (eg duck or chicken legs). We had a feast of Kampung Chicken Rice, Green Beans, Depp Fried Prawns...More

Cost of a whole chicken is $33 vs Tian Tian $24. But the biggest RIP off was the price of a medium plate of sweet potato leaves. A ridiculous $18. The few strands of veg (probably cost 30 cts from a wet market) cost more...More

Went to 5 star chicken rice tonight - for the first and last time. Ordered the Kung Pao chicken and it was very dry and tough. If I didn't know any better, it seemed as if they "recycled" the unsold chicken rice into the dish...More
