Food here was excellent and service at this area was prompt. The chicken rice ball was excellent and brings back old memories of the past. The service was pretty efficient even though there were a lot of customers and it was full house when we were there.

Based on feedback from the internet, this is the best among the three. I am disappointed. Chicken is tender but the rice is too wet and missing chicken oil aroma. I pref the Hainanese chicken rice in Singapore and KK.
