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.

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.

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

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.
