Came back here again this week for another visit with a few colleagues. It was a rainy day so there weren't many people inside. Opted for chicken rice and the roast pork. Food was decent but I was a little put off by the flies...More

The chicken was good, not too fatty and has a good Texture to it, maybe they use kampong chicken? My friends liked their roasted pork(aka siew yoke) but not to my liking as they pour a sweet sauce over the roasted pork and it takes...More

We came here looking for traditional hainanese chicken rice. This restaurant has been around for years and the decor definitely reflects it's history. As soon as we walked in, we felt like we were back in the 70s, which was exactly what we were looking...More

This used to be good but now the chicken is dry as cardboard and absolutely tasteless. $6 per serving is pretty expensive. Service which was brusque at best in the past has now descended to rude. Do yourself a favour and go across the road...More

This shop was recommended by a local and both of us ordered half a chicken and 2 bowls of rice. Service is really not friendly - rather abrupt with no smiles and the restaurant was not even half full. The chicken was lean and rice...More

Yet Con is an institution... Dining here is like having a meal in a time capsule. You will be seated in a setting from eons back, on decades-old marbled tables by staff who have been doing this for all their life! The food is authentic...More

$30 for a whole chicken, slightly more expensive than hawkers out there, But the quality and amount of chicken is well worth it. Rice were ok, not the most fragrant that I've tried, as I preferred the more oily version. The roast pork were not...More
