“More than Hainan chicken rice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Even though I live in the area, it is my first visit to Savoy. The line seems very long every time I pass by, but this time we arrived around 1p and the wait was only 10 min. We decided against ordering their famous hainan chicken rice and went with their smoked duck pasta and their seafood pizza. Their pasta was extra saucy, but came with fresh bread for you scoop up the sauce. The pasta sauce was a red cream squce that tasted like marinara sauce with a tad bit of ginger. The pizza was worth the 20 min wait. The crust was fresh made and the pizza sauce was the same pasta sauce as the pasta. There was plenty of seafood on the pizza. Wait staff were great and prices are reasonable.

“Very taste Hai Nan Ji Fan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Very authentic Hai Nan Ji Fan (Chicken with rice). The rice was very tasty. Chicken was good but my mom said it would be better if they used fresh chicken. Price was very reasonable.

“Hidden Jewel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

When it comes to decide which restaurant have the best Hainam Chicken, Savoy is definetly has a right to claim one :)
Their Hainam Chicken was cooked to perfection. The only closest contender is Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Singapore, but since I live here I vote for savoy.

“Perhaps I just wasn't that hungry”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

I was in town for 3 days and all my local friends raved about this place so I had to give it a try. It was 93 degrees that day and we were sitting outside, so maybe that was why I found nothing too special about the famous Hainanese chicken (we got the dark meat). Or maybe my expectation was too high because everybody kept telling me how awesome the food was. We only have Nyonya and some small ones in NYC so I perhaps I just got used to non-authentic Malaysian food. But I looked around and everyone else seemed to really enjoy the food and they do have a large selection for a small place like that. It looks very clean and the service was great. I would still give it a try next time I'm in town to see if I feel differently.

“Excellent malaysian food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Everything is good here but if it's your first time, I would highly recommend the hainan chicken and the curries.
