I could eat soya chicken on a weekly basis. It was really fortunate that when we visited this restaurant there was not a long line up. This is a nice outside location with nice contemporary fixtures and practical furniture. Clean and efficient. Prices pretty decent....I came for the chicken not for the barbeque pork or cha siew. The soya color of the chicken skin was tantalizing and the taste was exquisite. I completed my meal with the daily soup which hit the spot. Probably would not have visit this spot if not for the Michelin writeup.More

Love this soya sauced chicken. May not be the famous Michelin Star stall but surely worth a go. Highly recommended...for the food and surely no meandering queue

We have visited this place under the impact of internet reviews... :) "Michelin star cafe", "Popular place" and so on. But it was nothing special. Absolutely ordinary cafe. Just a fastfood. We took chicken rice and chicken noodle. And it was not tasty. Visit only..."for check-in".More

Maybe we were expected to much from one star michelin restaurant but the experience was very disappointing. The place was not crowded at all and that not explain why the floor was dirty. we received our order a short time but it was cold and...we didn’t like to eat a cold chicken, the noodles and the rice was barely okay and not over We left the place very disappointedMore

We visited the location just outside Chinatown Hawker complex after it was recommended to us and we were not impressed. It wasn’t bad at all but didn’t really “wow” us. Not worth a special trip or hours waiting for sure. I thought one of the...stalls we ate at inside the Chinatown hawker Complex was better (one of the highly rated ones). Seems very touristy to me.More

When I heard this, I thought I had to try. It does Chicken rice and not much else. The food was delicious and popular but not crazily so. Place your order after a small wait and then another short wait and the food is ready....Plastic tables, beer and soft drinks on sale. No frills, just the food. It was delicious and incredibly cheap with or without the Michelin star. Recommended.More

The restaurant is crowded, it smells bad, you can barely walk between the tables and the food was minimally good as we expected.

A bit underwhelmed actually, I guess I expected more from a one-Star Michelin eatery. The chicken was actually very good and flavorful, but it is really only a order-at-the-counter, fast-food restaurant. I don't pretend to understand the criteria used to award the star. Okay, good,...not great, nothing really exceptional.More

unless there is an unusual ingredient in the marinade I believe that the majority of the meat and rice plates would be naturally gluten free
