We ordered some for take away and the order was well managed. Saw that they do serve other dishes apart from chicken rice and will definitely like to come back to try them out. The roasted chicken is good and the rice fluffy and aromatic.

With a multitude of chicken rice stalls in Singapore, you might have difficulty finding just one place with authentic and mouth-watering chicken rice. Yet, one established and reliable chain to try is Five Star Hainanese Chicken Rice, with outlets in East Coast and River Valley and Upper Bukit Timah.
