We came here to try their chicken over rice before boarding our cruise ship and we were not disappointed. The chicken was smooth, tasty and not dry. Add the condiments of a little soy sauce, ginger & garlic and a little chili sauce plus the coconut flavored rice, you got one heck of a meal. The place was relatively crowded... More

Looking at the pictures here on trip advisor of the same dish i ordered, i can see that i also got a much, much smaller portion + the food was... More

Totally have enough with chicken rice since I brought my family over & over again to boon tong kee until we tried wee nam kee. The flavor is refreshing! The chicken is very tender, roasted skin is light & crispy, soy sauce is well balance between savory & sweet and garlic chili is perfecting the whole dish. They have white... More

This is our first meal when we just arrived in Singapore. I love chicken so much. Therefore I chose this one without any second wondering. Chicken was so fresh and tender which combine perfectly with soya sauce. The soup was great with nice broth. Strongly recommend this place. Very clean, nice staff, excellent services.

The restaurant is conveniently located on the 4th level of the Marina Square It is always very crowded during lunch and I always make it a point to be there early. The Chicken rice is consistently very good. They have a very reasonable set for lunch which is comparable to food court prices. Very good value for money and service... More

One of my highlights to Singapore was to eat the Hainanese chicken rice. My wife loved it tremendously. The boiled white or dark soy sauce chicken meat is so tender and juicy. The rice is cooked in its juices and so fragrant. The ginger and chili paste is to die for if you care for the hot stuff. We ordered... More

Visited the United Square branch in November 2016 to try out this infamous chicken rice. I did not find the white chicken to be anything fantastic. The ones I had in Boon Tong Kee and a restaurant next to Raffles Hotel were more exciting to eat. Soup was not bad. Service was a little slow, with incoming patrons hardly noticeable... More
