The food is excellent and there are quite varieties not only chicken rice. However, the chicken rice is great. Also the other vegetable dishes are also fantastic. The services are okay as a whole.

My review is for the United Sq branch. People have mentioned that the other chicken rice shops along Balestier Road are the best. But for me personally Wee Nam Kee is the best. The chicken meat is succulent and juicy. The rice and soup are tasty. They provide ginger paste that adds flavour to the rice. Overall, the best chix... More

After a meeting near United Square in Novena I found Wee Nam Kee and decided to give it a try. The chicken was tender and juicy and the rice was just great. It's excellent value for the quality of the food. Highly recommend!

Very inexpensive, casual restaurant. Service was very friendly and food great. Quick service. Frequented by mostly locals, which is always a good sign. Their chicken rice was delicious.

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
