Had a lovely lunch here. Surprised at prices as not mentioned by other reviewers. So I'm going to note that its not the cheapest place to eat (if you want cheap and cheerful go to a hawkers market). But the food was delicious and service efficient and friendly. Lobster laksa is one of the best laksas I've had. Also took... More

Ambience was great but pricing of the items on the menu is steep considering these are regular hawker fare as well as the quality of food is not great. Other than the much acclaimed chicken rice which is fairly decent, the nasi lemak was a huge disappointment as the fried anchovies were extremely hard and almost felt like biting on... More

Food is ok, i've tasted better chicken rice in other place. White curry noodle was better. One annoying thing was that the server didnt give me the change, it's not much but it's about honesty, i waited quite long and finally i left. Or maybe the server thought that it was a tip for him ? Because he looked at... More

Having eaten there regularly in the 1900's, we went back in November 2016. The chicken rice is still the best and we were not disappointed.

In my opinion chatterbox is still the best chicken rice in Singapore with the best service. My sister was having stomachache and she put the medicine on the table. Without asking the waitress serve her warm water noting the meds on the table. Will go try their lobster laksa next time!

I came here by recommendation of a local as the best chicken rice in Singapore and I have to say it was very very good. Everything worked together brilliantly and the chicken was cooked perfectly and was generously put together. However, for thirty dollars per order, I find it very very hard to justify the value for money here when... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Orchard Road
Shopping is a national pastime for Singaporeans, and after a visit to Orchard Road it’s easy to see why. This seemingly endless boulevard boasts a dizzying selection of shopping centres. From bargain basement foragers to designer label big-spenders, there is something for everyone. For those just browsing, there are countless restaurants, food courts, and cinemas, as well as the odd street entertainer to keep you amused. Most of the malls are connected by underground walkways, offering a break from the sun on a hot day. Bring a credit card and some comfortable shoes, and plunge into the excitement.
