You won't find a better Hainanese chicken rice. I live in Sydney and for years a shop inside AA served the best chicken rice. After the 90s and the closing of the store, no where else serves as good as that old place. Now this...More

Yes, the chicken rice is good, and it's better than most chicken rice that I've tasted, but it doesn't give a 'wow' experience. I went to Maxwell Food Center a bit late, at 4 or 5 PM if I'm not mistaken, and when I got...More

I think that although the food is good here, it benefits from all the media attention. Don't get me wrong, the food was good-mainly the sauce for the chicken, but there are a LOT of places to choose from here at the food center and...More

Overall the chicken rice is good, rank 3rd after Boon Tong Kee and Five Star. Only issue here at the Simpang Bedok branch is extremely arrogant and rude staff. More then one occurance.

We traveled to the Maxwell Food Centre specifically for this meal. It cost us about $15 Singaporean for a plate of chicken, two bowls of rice and some veggies. It was really delicious and tender- not sure if it was the sauce but it was...More

Quite a queue at Tian Tian when we arrived one Saturday afternoon. Mostly local clientele. But line was moving quickly anyway so we decided to join the queue and finally get a chance to taste their chicken rice. We got a simple combo of half...More

Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.

Almost all chinese businesses close during Chinese New Year. That is the only time in the year they are closed. Tian Tian should be no exception.

It depends on when they run out of chicken. Sometimes as early as 4PM. If it's closed, you can always try out the nearby Ah Tai Chicken Rice stall. It's run by Tian Tian's ex-cook, and closes by 8PM :)

Celebrity chef and host Anthony Bourdain once said that the rice here is so good that you can eat it on its own. One of the most famous Hainanese chicken rice stalls in Singapore, Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice is located in the Maxwell Food Centre, with long queues forming in front of the stall every day.
