Some of the best chicken I've ever eaten in my life. The rice was beautifully seasoned,the chicken melted in my mouth and the sauce complimented it perfectly. My only regret was ordering the smallest portion. The queue is long I wait 15-20 minutes, tourists and locals in line.

For me completely over rated. The chicken was served cold, best part was the chilli sauce on the side. Sought this place out on a busy trip and not really worth it to be honest. Food was fine and tasted good, but expected more

Stumbled across this place and saw the line so we thought it must be good. Very cheap and filling. Tasty chicken rice. Wouldn't highly recommend.

Okay, everyone can boil a chicken, but no one can do it like Tian Tian. Simply the best Chicken Rice I've ever tasted (and I have had too many). The chicken meat was perfectly cooked, succulent and super tender. Maybe the secret is they have soaked it in the gravy (just a guess). If you don't want the chicken skin,... More

The chicken rice is smooth and fragrant. You can also chose the vegetables to go along in a set. Definitely much cheaper than Mandarin Hotel Chatter box and great taste too.

My family loves chicken rice. Whenever we're in Singapore, that's probably all we eat. We've tried it in hawker stalls, high-end restaurants, and food courts. We sought out Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice after it got good reviews from Anthony Bourdain and Gordon Ramsay. We heard that lines could be long so we went early. We got there a little... More

Been here before, thought it was very good food back then, still think so now. The queue was not long when we got there at 11:30 AM, 15 minutes wait. We ordered a half chicken, $12 not including the rice. The chicken was very tender to almost melting in your mouth. The rice is tasty and the chilli is flavoursome.... More

I am told this a highly rated place to eat. I was lucky by arriving early I caught a break in the queue for this food. I had the chicken rice and bean sprouts (see photo). It was delicious. Very simple and clean tasting. A very satisfying lunch.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
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. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
