The Chicken rice is not super fatty, and the chili just perfectly sour and chili to cut through the soft chicken. Must try at least once.

The rice was very fragrant, chicken tender ( we ordered thighs) and vegetables good too. The only comment I would make is : it was not enough! But when it's good, it's never enough.

I have been to this stall in the past with a large group when we ordered a whole chicken. That was fantastic as the meat was tender, and the fat beneath the skin was crystalline in globules. This time I was alone but the experience was downgraded to common. The meat whilst still tender, was nothing to crow about. It... More

Singaporeans take pride in their chicken rice, and while most (or everyone actually) will have their own take on which stalls are the best one in Singapore, Tian Tian in Maxwell Food Centre takes the Bib Gourmand for the great representation of the chicken rice in Singapore. In fact, Anthony Bourdain himself in his show praised this stall, and I... More

Chicken rice is pretty much the national dish of Singapore and Tian Tian are one of the finest exponents of this dish. It looks so simple, almost boring on the plate....however one taste quickly changes this perception as the flavoursome rice perfectly combines with amazing chicken. Add to this some chilli and you can create your own taste sensation. I'd... More

If you're looking for tasty Hainanese chicken rice, look no further than Tian Tian. The chicken was moist and the sauce had good flavor. Reasonably priced (SG$5) and delicious, can't ask for more!

So this hawker stall is really famous. Anthony Bourdain and Gordon Ramsay have been here and liked it. I would say along with boon tong kee (river valley and balestier) and wee nam kee (marina square), this is the trifecta Avoid peak meal times unless you like waiting for 30min in a line. I went at 2pm and it was... More

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.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
