Lousy attitude. food average。 Lady who takes your order walks away halfway through your order. Shows attitude when you order more than 1 plate of drumstick rice. 食物一般。 态度恶劣。 点餐小姐点餐到中途就离开。 不让客人点多过一份鸡腿饭。

Review by DrSim001 (Dr.H.C.M. Sim). Very Good Hainanese Food. Singaporeans and Tourists Should Try. No Air-conditioning. A bit Warm. Basic Ambience. Very crowded and noisy. Surprisingly, I see a sizeable number of expatriates eg, Americans and Europeans. Try the recommended dishes highlighted on the menu....More

The white chicken is better than the roasted chicken.We tried both and my family prefers the white chicken. The chicken rice is fragrant and taste good. The cihilli packs a punch and the Fu yong Egg is also nice. Overall value for money.

Can't think of a better, comforting lunch than some good old hainanese pork chop, chicken rice and some chinese stir-fry dishes. The price is understandably pricier, given the location, but the food never really disappoints. I love this place :)

After reading reviews we decided to try this little place and we were not disappointed! Lots of locals frequent here and can be very busy! The food and service was excellent definitely worth visiting!
