Lovely Chicken Rice!! Must try for foreigners :)

Lovely authentic Hainanese chicken rice in Singapore. The rice flavouring is lovely. In fact, I could just eat the rice with chiken sauce. Order the white and roasted chicken and try both of it. Not to forget , the red chilli mix with gingers. If you cant take spicy, put a little on the chicken and... read more

I've gone here so much I can't even recall just how many times.. the chicken rice is so delicious, along with the dumpling soup, sweet and sour pork, and the LIME JUICE! You must try the lime juice.. I have fallen in love! Although the service could be better (when I say better, I mean A LOT better), the food... More

I came to know this place years ago when it was across from Novena Church on Thomson Road. Now there is a branch in Marina Square and a branch in United Square (Novena...just near the original). I visited the branch at United Square. If anyone remembers the old place, the new one seems ultra posh, but really they kept many... More

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.

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.
