Have been at this place several times now and it never disappoints. Absolutely love the flavor and consistency of the chicken. The rice is perfect and one must add the broth and the sauces. It for sure is worth the wait and for the price one cannot go wrong.

Got the information of this restaurant from travel book and decided to judge if her Hainanese Chicken Rice is better than I had before. with the price I paid, it is the highest C/P value in my experience. The chicken is very tender and the rice cooked just right. when mixed with the oily juice from chicken, it is so... More

I had read a lot about Tian Tian and decided it would be my first point of call when I arrived from Perth because I love Hainanese Chicken Rice. The restaurant is located in a bustling food complex with about 100 different food stalls. Lots of choice. And very cheap. I ordered the Hainanese Chicken Rice for two S$13.50. The... More

The good thing about this chicken rice is they have already taken out all the bones in the chicken so you just enjoy the chicken meat. Some restaurant they still have the bones in the chicken rice. The chicken meat also taste tender. It cost S$5 and S$4 for the bok choy veggies. I love this chicken rice so I... More

Just follow the line and you'll end up here for very good tasty hainanese chicken rice. Inexpensive and hits the spot.

What to say.... great chicken rice. As good as boon tong Kee chicken rice... but at much better prices. I do hope I've not offended and die hard fans by making this cross reference... Located at the market which is clean and airy. With other good food available within the same centre.... it's great. Do give it a try. happy... More

Went there last Sunday and regretted it. The Hainanese chicken was terrible, not cooked enough, with blood! Will never go back...

located in a not so attractive place, if you are a tourist so happen to be at Chinatown area, give this a try. only go for the white steamed chicken. as that is their signature dish. rich flavour on the rice would test your palate. Awesome local dish.

Visited their outlet at Jalan Pari Burong near bedok. Ordered both the roasted chicken and white chicken. They have this standard chicken gravy in light brown colour poured onto the chicken as well as their bean sprout. Find the taste of this gravy too salty. Rice is okay. MSG is on high side for this place. We tried the hainanese... More

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.
