No soup is provided even with a half-chicken order. Although the rice is delectable, chicken is so-so. I prefer Ah Tai's chicken rice, Tian Tian's competitor in the chicken rice war.

Get in line early,easy if you arrived at Changi Airport at 6-30am. Dump luggage at your hotel and start exploring Singapore on foot. If mistakenly your hotel is way across town then a quick trip on their excellent underground train will get you close by. If arriving around 11-30am then stand in line. If arriving after 12-30 pm stand in... More

Went for early lunch at 11:30 am and found basically no line. Aromatic, soft, it was as good as advertised and inexpensive as S$5. I found it better than Ah-Tai, although both are excellent.

We had heard about this famous restaurant for a while and jumped at the opportunity to eat here this past weekend. We were not disappointed! We came around 11:30 am on a Saturday and we were glad we did as there was already a long line and hungry people waiting! It did not take long at all to get our... More

Chicken Rice is one of the Singapore dishes that every visitor to Singapore must try. And Tian Tian is up there amongst the very famous. At one time this place was voted number one by local foodies. Anthony Bourdain, an American celebrity chef, loves it. Personally I would say it is good but there are others equally good or better.... More

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.

Finally got to try the famous chicken rice at Tian Tian, chicken was moist and rice has "chicken oil" in it which made it tastes even better , very yummy and reasonably priced (around S$5), highly recommended !

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.
