An all around tasteful meal, which sadly doesn’t live up to the hype, but for the price you’re paying you really can’t be disappointed. Ignoring the fact that it’s a Michelin restaurant, it’s a really nice place.

I was here for lunch it was a production line but fast service and great food tried the signature chicken it was moist and deliciously spiced and the roast pork again delicious. Price for the food was ridiculously cheap definitely can recommend 👍

PROS Quality of food, speed service, position Definitely, the price. CONS Finitures, level of service might be a bit better (tissues are not included, for example). Cant miss the cheapest Michelin Starred Restaurant in all over the World. Even if we do not understand how...More

The flavours of the chicken and rice are pretty good. I was a bit disappointed when I got my food because it was all cold though. Sounds like a lot of people have this experience which honestly surprised me because there is such a turnover...More

Had high expectations but so disappointed. Long queue. Then the rude and no manner cashier. Then chicken was dry. The place is cramped and no supervisor. The toilet smells so bad. I dont know how they got the michelin star though.

No queues, fast easy service, l dined here at 5.30pm on a Friday. Great food. My meal cost me €3.80 for the chicken rice and €5 for the kailan (Singapore $) Chicken was luscious. Greens perfect. Sauces amazing. Great value for money.

I had high hopes prior to coming here and sadly the food wasn’t as great I was wishing for. All the news and stories about it being the cheapest Michelin star. We ordered the famous chicken with rice and with noodles. The noodles was good...More

Forget the Michelin star debate, this place has to be one of the best 'value' meals you can have anywhere in the world. Yes, chicken-rice (or roast-pork rice, which we preffered) is not THE most interesting or sophisticated taste, the quality of the version they...More

It's not a michelin star restaurant, but best food price ration you can find. A good experience though

Went to the original stall in the food market but we were too late everything had been sold so we went across the road to their casual dining offshoot at 78 Smith St. Here we had to have the famous soya sauce chicken rice which...More

Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights,
enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The
precinct is unique, however, in its blending of
religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic
mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side
by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as
you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife
areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll
