We ordered a whole steamed chicken and some roasted pork. The chicken was dry and tasteless. The roast pork was very dry and hard. Service was not existent and the place has a nostalgic feel, but it is very dirty and unsanitary. Last but not...More

My favourite steamboat in SGP. I have visited this restaurant since 1980s. Simple steamboat without highly processed meat you get from other restaurants. For those who prefer simple fuss-free authentic old-school steamboat. Not many similar restaurants left in SGP. Hainanese chicken rice was also good....More

I wished I brought my camera to Yet Con. In there, it feels like time has stopped. The meal however, was really bland and average. Some may like it because of how it tastes like home cooked food- simple, not salty and light, but it...More

I was expecting a lot from this vintage shop but i was disappointed. The whole restaurant had a bad smell. The rice was not as fragrant as Boon Tong Kee's. The chicken is pretty tough. Roast pork is really average. Is it because I visited...More

The service was bad, the chicken looked like leftovers, and the rice was cold. Just not worth it!

If you're looking for a slice of old Singapore, you could do much worse than going to Yet Con for lunch. Authentic chicken rice and the steamboat soup is a pleasant bonus. Must try the steamed white chicken.

The place is good for taking pictures if you like vintage stuff!! The place stinks and hygiene is really bad. The chicken rice is even worse. The chicken tastes awful, chewy like frozen rubber and got funny smell like the meat's frozen for a decade!...More

The restaurant had a very retro/ old school feeling to it. The chicken was quite dry and didn't come with any sesame oil or soya sauce on it. Dry piece of meat on top of a few slices of cucumber. The roasted pork was too...More

The day that I went, they only serve three dishes - chicken, roast pork and steamboat. The chicken together with rice are perfect in every detail, from skin texture, meat texture, taste, rice, cucumber, soup and even the soy sauce. I didn't really like the...More
