“Nice chicken rice in a nice environment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Am referring to the Marina Square outlet. In the midst of generic food stalls in the food court, is an outlet of a well known chicken rice place. The place is inviting and decorated to remind patrons of its beginnings as a humble coffee shop stall. The chicken rice is consistently good with the tender pieces of chicken and the wonderful chilli with ginger. The hainanese pork chop was also very good. If you want a taste of Singapore without the perspiration, this is a good place.

“Good for chicken rice and pork chop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Visited the branch at Marina Square for lunch yesterday. Ordered 1/2 chicken, fritters filled with prawns, chilli kangkong, wonton soup (L size), hainanese pork chop and hotplate tofu - food was not too bad, though some portions seemed small for M size. Inclusive of drinks and rice for six people, the bill came up to around $100.

“Worst service experienced in Singapore on two occasions since they moved to new premises.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

Went to the new shop just after it opened and service was very poor, thought it maybe new openning issues. Went back again last week, waited 10 minutes before getting the menu ourselves and after trying to get their attention for 15 minutes to make our order we gave up and left. We weren't the only ones not getting service. Think they are working on reputation to make up for the very poor service.

“One of My Favs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Wee Nam Kee is the first Chicken Rice stall that I took notice of over 15 years ago. By far, this place offers great value at just $4+, although the portion of chicken seems to be a lot less since they moved to United Square. I rate Wee Nam Kee as one of my top three favorite chicken rice stalls!
