“ginger and chili are the best”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

i came back here for the ginger and chili sauce. of course the chicken and its rice are nice but there are so another better known chicken rice stall just 2stores away. and the serving of the chicken is not that much. but i cant resist the ginger and chili here. so late at night when i am hungry and craving for chicken rice, this is the place for me.

“good, quick, reliable”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

if you want a reliable hainanese chicken rice spot, this place definitely has it! went here for the comfort food of the chicken rice and the cereal-coated prawns! (even the coating of the prawns are good enough to snack on) the price wouldn't hurt the wallet, so it's just fair. i agree there are many more places such as this eatery but this is our stop for comfort food. definitely left with smiles on our faces. and don't forget to get the home-made barley drink. it'll surely quench the thirst from all the heat in singapore!

“Good late night spot for decent chicken rice”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

This, along with neighbouring restaurants, offer a good selection of late night dining. Chicken rice here is average (better is available at Zion Road Food Court) but I would return.

“Ok if you want Chinese food”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

The food was good, but not outstanding, if you want Chinese food then why not give it a try.

“Their homemade (jia xiang) tofu is really good and their desserts portions are huge.”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

Their chicken is so so, however, their homemade (jia xiang) tofu is really good. Their desserts portions are really huge too, compared with last time.
