Chinese chicken and rice

This place has good food. known for a particular style of chicken and rice, it is very good. It's tiny and popular, so if you go at peak times be prepared to wait. Authentic-they have a discerning crowd that expects good food at a great price. There is no parking to speak of, so be prepared to park... read more

Be prepared to sign your name on the waiting list. Their hainan chicken is the best that I've tried. The price is good would most definitely recommend anyone to try this place!

Ambiance: The place is small. Arrive early for lunch and you'll probably still wait in line. Sign in and wait to be called. They have a nice outdoor seating area which is great in the sunny California sun. service: It's fast and the bare minimum. Know what you want order enjoy and go. Food: The Hainan chicken is what everyone... More

Pretty good. Really quick service. I got one of the pastas - garlic chicken? And my boyfriend got the Friday lunch special ox tail with rice. We both got ice tea with lemon for $2 each. The ice tea comes with free refills so that was cool. Never have that in NYC lol the garlic chicken was ok. I should've... More

Even though I live in the area, it is my first visit to Savoy. The line seems very long every time I pass by, but this time we arrived around 1p and the wait was only 10 min. We decided against ordering their famous hainan chicken rice and went with their smoked duck pasta and their seafood pizza. Their pasta... More

Very authentic Hai Nan Ji Fan (Chicken with rice). The rice was very tasty. Chicken was good but my mom said it would be better if they used fresh chicken. Price was very reasonable.

When it comes to decide which restaurant have the best Hainam Chicken, Savoy is definetly has a right to claim one :) Their Hainam Chicken was cooked to perfection. The only closest contender is Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Singapore, but since I live here I vote for savoy.

I was in town for 3 days and all my local friends raved about this place so I had to give it a try. It was 93 degrees that day and we were sitting outside, so maybe that was why I found nothing too special about the famous Hainanese chicken (we got the dark meat). Or maybe my expectation was...

Everything is good here but if it's your first time, I would highly recommend the hainan chicken and the curries.
