I can recommend BTK very much. I love their very fragrant rice. The chicken, too, of course. And the chilli is house-made. It can get a little noisy when it's full and you're sitting by the door close to the street but the food is worth it.

Everything is so delicious. The roasted chicken is worth the 30 minutes wait. The crispy beancurd and hainan rice is also excellent.

Vegetarian food is available if you look carefully at the menu. Portions are generous. Not exactly economical, but great value for money.

I was recommended to come here by several friends. The steamed chicken rice is nice. It's meat is very tender. The dish is accompanied by it's fragrant rice and condiments. There was a slight queue when I came but it seemed to move quite quickly. If you're near the area, it's not too bad. Don't think I'd return for a... More

Famous for chicken rice and ample parking at the carpark behind, as opposed to the river valley branch Ordered the chicken rice, plus ngoh hiang, crispy beancurd and sweet/sour soup. The chicken rice and ngoh hiang were good, the beancurd blah and the soup disappointing $31 per person so pretty moderate pricing
