Better than Singapore standard chicken rice

Since 2010, I ate Wee Nam kee opposite Novena Church many times and always had to wait for awhile for table every single time. Then the whole area was torn down. I was quite sad for a several months. Finally I saw an advertising poster in United Square that this restaurant will reopen with bigger... read more

I ordered chicken rice, prawn mee, and so on. Food is really nice and I love the flavor, too. Size is good and satisfying your appetite. This is one of the most famous Singapore local food. I have a few disappointment. The staff is terrible. I tried to ask to order and called the staff but they let us wait... More

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 rice. You will have... 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

Staying in Marina Bay

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.
