The basic white chicken rice (a.k.a. "village chicken" here) is just okay. Very disappointed by the Spicy Vegetables side dish.

Maybe this restaurant is for tourism, so for me, a local , just feel "so so " on this place. But if you are a tourism, you can try this restaurant.

Been here a few times over the years. This time I was satisfied my chicken was plump and moist and a reasonable size. Rice could have been better or maybe just fresher. I think if your in chinatown and you feel like some hainanese chicken then find it. Was 10 ringgit for chicken, roast pork, rice and the usual clear... More

A good place to go for a fast and easy lunch. They have chicken rice as well as noodles with soup and vegetables as a side dish. Franchising has meant that prices are now expensive and the quality not up to the mark. Still the outlets are always packed during the peak lunch hours. Will eat here if I don't... More

All the years that have been visiting this place, somewhat it has become mediocre. No longer having the original taste of Hainanese chicken rice. It is difficult to find proper and authentic Hainanese chicken rice in KL these days. So, only the name lives...

We rode a taxi cab in KL and asked the driver where the best hainanese chicken can be found, he brought us to Nam Heong, he said it is popular among the locals. True enough, they have a very delicious steamed chicken and a very tasty chicken rice. A great place to eat lunch in Kuala Lumpur.
