Just go to normal kopi shop also can get better chicken rice than this. Never come back again. Very disappointed , was craving for chicken rice all the way from Kuala Lumpur.

The other one not opened so decided to just pop by. Environment can be considered clean but spoilt by the quite dismissive service. The food is too salty.

The chicken rice there is not fantastic. Prior our visit our friends have already told us that the standard is really poor. We feel that the chicken rice ball is Resorts World Sentosa Is much nicer than Famorsa.

Their interior reminds me of old kungfu movies. Their food was standard (quality and prices). Half steamed chicken for RM 20, it's too wet and tender. Rice ball for RM 0.4 each. Staff also not very friendly but helpful enough.
