Though we have been early there the place was fully packed. No tourist and plenty of locals with their families. It's not a place to expect a great service. It's fast efficient and nothing fancy. It can look a bit messy but it has to be like that. The portion are sized well. Try steamed and roasted chicken both are... More

Each time we return to Singapore, we will make time for a meal here. It is consistently good, even though the service can be improved. Our usual order includes half a chicken ( both roasted and steamed skin), a bowl of wonton soup, the Pork chop special, hot plate tofu and fried kangkong in chilli. Dinner for two, including two...

This restaurant has the best chicken with rice you will eat in Singapore. Weeks before my vacation started I took the time to find out the best places to eat in Singapore. The several people I talked to and that had lived in the city mentioned that this was without a doubt the place to go. Hopefully my hotel was... More

One of the well-known chicken rice restaurant in Singapore. Wee Nam Kee has 4 branches (United Sq, Marina Sq, The Esplanade and i12 Katong). For the Marina Square branch, the restaurant is located just next to the escalator as you move up to the level 4 food court. Beside chicken rice, you can order other dishes that you typically get...

I have always been curious about Chicken Rice from Hainan. Finally got to have some at this great little shop in Singapore. I have had some back home but everybody tells me that the best are in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. I have now tried the one in Singapore and I am looking forward to trying in Thailand when I...

The chicken is so tender, I love the chili too. Chicken rice is nothing without the chili. They have varieties of other choices in their menus, so if you think chicken only is not enough, you can go for tofu, kailan, etc.

For the first time in our lives, my family and I tried Wee Nam Kee with anticipation. We heard many raves about it since the days it was at Thomson / Novena Ville, before moving to United Square. We were early so there werent any queue. Five of us were ushered to a round table. The service was utterly disappointing.... More
