I've had chicken rice in other places, this one was one of the better. Chicken rice itself is a bit bland and uneventful (I'm from Louisiana, so I have a higher need for spice!). This place does chicken rice pretty well. Found the service and price to be ok.

We went back to the Marina branch for dinner, as we were staying at the nearby Pan Pacific Hotel. There were definitely fewer customers, perhaps from the rat incident at the porridge place next door. We ordered a plate of roast chicken and a plate of steamed chicken. I preferred the steamed, as it was moist and absorbed the sesame... More

Wee Nam Kee have 2 brances, 1 opposite novena church and another in marina square. Marina square outlet taste average, but the one in novena is the original. Have went there many times and liked the chicken rice a lot, the white chicken taste smooth while the roasted chicken very crispy, highly recommended

I don't think the chicken rice is very special. It is average at best. There are better chicken rice out there (e.g. The Big Bird, old airport road hawker centre). The service is horrible... servers are curt, although not expecting much from a crowded place. I will not spend to come and dine here on my own.

We had heard of this dish (chicken rice) from lots of travelers and decided to go to this restaurant to have some. The female waitress had very little English, but we just pointed and she understood. The older man came over, and in very good English, explained all the condiments which was appreciated very much. An English couple dining next... More

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!

Neighborhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighborhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
