“no way near a Singapore chicken rice”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

We tried the one at Serendra, BGC, but was disappointed.
Chicken should be moist, smooth, juicy. Here, it is dry and hard. Taste of artificial flavouring.
Rice is not fragrant either, no smell of ginger, chicken. Far cry from a good chicken rice.
Other dish we order is disappointing too, especially the slice fish cook with spring onion. Fish slices are lumpy, felt like eating flour than fish. Even the complimentary bowl of soup did not have any chicken bone taste.
Yet, we are paying near Singapore price of around 450p for half bird.
Try Tao Yuan rstn at Lucky Chinatown, they have better, in fact, good hainanese chicken rice.

“Quality is not quite the same as in Singapore”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013

The taste and texture of the famed Wee Nam Kee chicken is not the same as that available from the mother company in Singapore. Still very tasty and will not be discerned by other guests who have not tried the original in Singapore.

“Good Asian food. Fast service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

The good was of good quality. The service is fast and efficient. We ordered the chicken, the crispy kr hon macau and the bread. Limited dessert range though. Overall will come back again.

“Excellent food with superb service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

This affordable and comfortable restaurant is worth dining it. All the staff are very attentive and polite. The free water is a plus point as well. Given its price, staff, nice atmosphere, and great locaation, this restaurant is a must stop for a chicken rice in Makati area

“Poor service at its worst”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

After 45 mins, all i got was a cold hainanese chicken and fried rice. Other customers who came later was served first. Asked for the manager and didnt want to face me for complaints. Stood up and walked out.
