As often with the genuine Chinese restaurants, the atmosphere is unfortunately gloomy and un-inviting: white neons, uncomfortable seatings..but as my Chinese friends say: that's not the decoration you come for, here. It's the Hainan chicken rice. And it's totally worth the bad lightning and rock-hard sitting. We went for the poached Hainan chicken (the roasted one was out of stock... More

This is the best chicken rice I' ve eat in singapore. It's located at united square. No word to describe it. A MUST TRY !! This place is always full, avoid going during lunch hour.

I tried Wee Nam Kee chicken rice for 1 in the Marina Square branch. The dish cost just $4.80. Bargain! The rice is also yummy when added with the dark sweet soy sauce. The chicken itself is soft and tender.

The food was fine, although not fantastic, and the price was decent. I think it's more worth going just to say that I went but I wouldn't go out of my way to return. Service was pretty quick. The restaurant is also quite noisy --they even have a sign asking people to keep their voices down, but I don't think... More

Great way to sample Singapore's national dish. I had this at the 112 Katong Shopping Center food court. For about SDG 7.50 (USD 5.95), I had the steamed chicken with vegetable set: steamed chicken, garlic rice, broth, and bok choy with oyster sauce. My goodness, I almost cried - I missed the tastes and flavors of Asia so much! Wee... More

It's nothing special, but the food is nice and they provide a good service at a fantastically cheap price. It's perfect for a quick lunch or evening meal.

I've been to both branches, the one at Marina Square last Saturday, we went to the one at United Square. For some reason, the branch at United Square was really crowded. The waitresses couldn't seem to coordinate among themselves and one showed me to a table and shortly after a Chinese speaking waitress came over and demanded to know why... More

I loved their chicken, be it soya sauce, white or even their roast chicken. They have a lunch set which includes chicken, rice and a veg or dumpling soup. Their dumplings are filled with minced meat, chestnut and prawn and very delicious. If you prefer a healthier choice, you can always order the chicken with white rice or noodles, equally... More

The chicken rice here is simple and delicious. Simplicity is sometimes the key to comfort food, and this in my opinion is the ultimate comfort food. I had the half roast chicken (way too much for one person, get the quarter), with rice and it was perfect. It came out a little cold but that's okay. Don't come here expecting... More
