Taste of my childhood

I grew up with Wee Nam Kee next to Novena. It has been my favourite place for Chicken rice since more than 10 years ago. Tried the new outlet in Marina Square recently, certainly brought me back to my childhood. Makes me want to move back to Singapore just to have their chicken rice again!

Have been a regular at this restaurant for many years since their days at Novena. Although they continue to enjoy good patronage, I may have said my goodbye to them yesterday. Operations wise, they are in quite a mess despite innovating their operations with a slew of iPads introduced. Our order of chicken/char siew was delayed and we had to... More

This is one of our most frequent store at United Square. Why do we frequent this place, because the chicken rice is the best in Singapore. We never had a chance to have negative feedback for the food. This is one crowded restaurant, so getting the attention of the staff is not easy. Their zhi char is also delicious but... More

For chicken rice lovers who can't get a seat or table at Marina Square, go to their branch at Katong 112. Plenty of seats and almost no queue. I eat there regularly and quality is consistently good and service is fast.

I had been to their outlet in Novena Ville, but never to the Marina Square site before. Marina Square outlet is definitely more comfortable. Same quality of food, but better place and service. This is one of my favorite chicken rice in Singapore. Beside the chicken rice, do order their To Mio (veggies) sauteed with garlic. I think they have... More

I can vouch that this is in the top 5 chicken rice. The service is poor, but there's air con, and there's unlimited garlic/ginger on the table, plus unlimited chicken rice chilli! Expect to pay $7 for a plate just like at Food Republic, rather than the normal $3, but know that it's worth every cent!

First time @ marina square. Great value for price. Fragrance rice and nice Chilli sauce. Ordered both steamed and roasted chicken. Love both. Will visit again.
