Nice Chicken Rice

Chicken rice with the rice served in the form of rolled balls; tasty with authentic chicken flavour and spicy chilli sauce; price is reasonable and service quite prompt without having to wait too long

Luckily I did not have to wait to get a table. I initially ordered chicken and rice balls, but they ended up giving me just chicken and rice. Once the owner figured out the mistake, she immediately went and brought me two rice balls without any extra cost. I thought that was quite kind and generous of her. The food... More

This restaurant has a nice ambience, u are like eating in the traditional old house with the big hall in the middle. The food is consider worth a visit with tender chicken and the rice ball is indeed better than the other popular shop. Remember to go early as they close quite...

We were led to this restaurant by our rental driver. At first we wanted to try peranakan food, but we thought the driver must know better although he must get incentive by taking guests there. No soup on that day, as stated in the main door. The rice was given on big plate, not personal portion. It did not taste... More

For chicken rice lovers like us who even cook our own chicken rice at home, this is nothing to shout about... Rice is not tasty enough, chicken is not tender enough even though it's alright. The rice balls r not as tasty as the loose rice. Will be a good place to eat if it's your first few experience with... More
