Long queue despite lousy food. Regret eating here, the chicken is not tasty, meat a bit chewy and the rice ball is cold and mushy. The liver looks so yellow we dare not eat it.

Honestly this place is over hyped and over rated. There are only two items on the menu - chicken rice balls and boiled chicken - both of which are really bland and presented in a really messy manner. There is obviously no drive whatsoever to...More

Visited during the weekend and the queue is very long. The chicken rice ball is very nice. The hainan chicken is smooth and juciy. Do come early eg before 10am to avoid long queue.

Don't even bother going to Hoe Kee or Jonker chicken rice ball.. This is for sure the best in the area! From the delicious steamed chicken to the excellently-rolled rice balls, the food here is definitely worth the queue!

The exterior of the shop looks really old and nostalgic but, please don't judge the food from the outlook of the shop. The chicken rice are really out of the world because it wasn't those typical served chicken rice that we have anywhere. The rice...More

Never tried eating alone. But their price are: Whole chicken - Rm44.60 Half chicken - Rm22.30 Rice ball is - Rm0.40 each. (5 balls per serving) I guess your can expect a bill of Rm25.00!
