The food is fine execute, the chicken rice, the pork chop even the fried bean sprouts are lovely. The service is also good, quick and attentive. It does not offer the best of SG food, but a very nice place to eat good food and enjoy.

Specifically wanted some good chicken rice and Chin Chin's did not disappoint. The chicken was succulent and fragrant but the rice was not quite as nice as some others I have tried. We also ordered some other dishes like the fish slices with spring onion (average), stir fried baby Kailan with sambal (yum) and hot plate tofu (average). Service was... More

Visited Chin Chin as I had been on a tour all day and felt peckish at about 4.30pm. I ordered Chicken rice and there was no fuss. Food was delivered quickly and was very tasty. Utensils and condiments were on the table already so it easy. For that time of the day,there were plenty of locals in there and the... More

Can't believe we lucked out and stumbled upon this little eating gem in Singapore. When I returned to work and told my colleague (born and bred in Singapore) where we ate he was very surprised as it's more a local eating place. After an expensive bar bill at Raffles, we wandered the nearby streets looking for something local and a... More

Just up the road from Raffles Hotel is this old school eating house jambed full of locals eating Hainan Chicken Rice (amongst other favorites). Do yourself a favour & order Chicken Rice, green vegies & beer and budget on about $12.00- $15.00 each. Melt in the mouth, succulent chicken will keep you wanting more. Avoid the bathrooms if possible.

We went there for breakfast so they just offer toast and eggs. Too bad the chefs only comes in at 11am. The hainanese coffee is good and toast is well prepared.

Visited Chin Chin recently after a lapse of more than 5 years. The Hainanese pork chop has gotten much better. The last time I ordered this dish, the meat was too dry. This time, I believe the cut of pork used was less lean so it was quite juicy. However, this still pales in comparison to the "real" Hainanese pork... More
