Yummy roasted chicken!

I like their Hainanese chicken rice especially their roasted chicken and their sauces that go with it. Sometimes I would just eat solo for their chicken rice. Most times, it is one of our favourite gathering places for cheap eats. Their other dishes are good as well such as pork chop and... read more

A usual go to place for a good family dinner with home cooked dishes. On our recent visits we decided to order their fish head curry. It was good. The serving was enough for 6. We usually order a few dishes such vegetables and hainanese pork chop. No disappointments at all. Everything is good and we always enjoy what we... More

Also friendly service. I spoke at length with Peggy Foo (who says her husband Dennis Lim is the boss) - she was very kind to me and the food was excellent. Both the rice and chicken were cooked to perfection and their chili sauce is just the right degree of spicy. I loved the (very casual) experience.

Was very yum for it's price - wouldn't write home about it though. Had the hainanese chicken and pork chop. The pork chop isn't a chop FYI! Was still yum though! The staff were quick but friendly and made me feel very comfortable as a solo diner.

Came here for the chicken rice as per previous reviews heard it was the place to go. The rice was still a bit hard, the chicken however was really good, nice and moist. I also ordered the kailan vege which was yum. Good atmosphere here. The staff who I placed the order with and served my food were friendly which... More

Stumbled across the restaurant, liked the name and the local look of it. Wasn't disappointed. Had seafood fried rice, kailin (? Some sort of leaf vegetable), eggplant with salted fish - which also had pork in it. The eggplant came in a piping hot, bubbling dish. It was nice and spicy. Whole lunch went down very well with a beer.

Went here to have Curry Fish Head but by the time we got where, they had sold out, so we ended up having Hainanese Chicken and Rice, which was still good but could have been better, also found the staff to be a bit rude and pushy, so you would eat and run.

We came at chin chin eating house because we had read reviews saying that it was the place to eat chiken rice.Well, i guess the reviews were wrong. In this place you will have average food, very bad service in a rather dirty environment and surely not the best chiken rice of your life. Save your money for some other... More

We came to Chin Chin chicken rice following recommends from other reviewers. However unfortunately it was not up to it for us nor the price. The chicken was ok but the rice was not very appetite. We also ordered a fried 'kang kong', a popular Asian type vegie, which was only ok to us; we encountered an unfamiliar taste of... More
