Normal place, meat is tasty, breast meat is tough. Rice is nice and fragrant ... Chilli is below average. Can try if you are around here.

Were not aware that this restaurant had good TA reviews. It was quiet in the early morning we were roaming Marina Square looking for a place for breakfast so decided to give it a try. Turned out to be very good. We all enjoyed the tasty chicken rice, served hot with chicken broth and made tastier with the home made... More

Brought an overseas friend here as it was famous and she wanted to try it. The chicken was good but the rice was only passable. Could probably get the same quality at a cheaper price at hawker centres. But good to bring overseas visitors here as the ambience was much better than hawker centres.

We tried Tian Tian chicken rice after finding it on tripadvisor and thought it was good. However we wanted to try another chicken rice and the Mandarin Oriental hotel doorman recommended Wee Nam Kee. The chicken rice was much nicer than Tian Tian and it served it with the ginger sauce as well as the chilli sauce, and less time... More

Read the reviews and thought to try it out. Unfortunately the service was poor, and the steamed chicken was no better then what you can get for lower price. Saving grace was the rice, which was fragrant enough. Prices was relatively expensive.

It was really crowded in the evening when we went to have dinner. I made a reservations beforehand but was given a seat that was near the wall/pillar and I had a hard time moving my seat. The tables could not be moved and I was literally 'stuck'. The table was so dirty, as when I was trying to move... More

Chicken rice is a must, it solves hang overs, it keeps families happy, great food before you travel, tasty and big portions. I have never had a bad meal at United Square or when they were on Thomson road. This restaurant is onto a winning formula. We always order the same dishes and there is never anything left on the...

It's a must to try their famous chicken rice and their service is relatively fast.The rice is quite fragrant and their roast chicken skin is kinda crispy too.The chicken skin does not have much fats and the meat is very tender.I will suggest to come early as it will get crowded during dinner time.

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighborhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
