We went for dinner tonight. Walked from our hotel. The Intercontinental. Didn't see chicken rice on menu so we ordered half a chicken and fried rice. We spoke with the people at the table next to us after we ate and they told us you have to tell them you want the rice. Bummer. Luckily we will be here two... More

Food: Known for their spectacular chicken rice, Chin Chin Eating House was still buzzing when we came for dinner in the late evening, after a long shopping expenditure. They also offer a huge range of other dishes that includes various meats such as pork, beef, squid and fish, as well as vegetables. Must Try: Steamed chicken and their fragrant rice... More

It's a traditional hainanese eatery with modern comfort of good air conditioning. The steam chicken is top quality with chunky smooth meat. Fried chicken, on the other hand, is just average. The mixed vegetables is very tasty and the tofu dish is top notch. All in all, worth a detour to eat here in your next visit to Singapore.

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.
