We took a long time for waiting, more than one hour. Chicken rice is ok, but I think that it is overrating. 6/10

Ordered medium chicken rice and a side of beansprouts. The chicken was a chopped up back segment with virtually no meat, just all bone. The beansprouts contained a pubic hair. Overall not that great and certainly not worth queuing up for. The lady who served...More

The Maxwell food centre has been renovated for years, but that doesn’t stop the queues at Tian Tian, about 20 minutes to the front of the line, but great chicken rice that doesn’t blow the bank. $5 sing for chicken on top of fragrant rice...More

Only thing nice is the rice. -Chicken is not fully cooked -Price @$3.50, usual ~$2.50-$3 -Rude staff -Staff complained when I ask to add some parsley. 😔 Good Chicken rice is abundance in Singapore, not sure if raw chicken is their style.

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.

It depends on when they run out of chicken. Sometimes as early as 4PM. If it's closed, you can always try out the nearby Ah Tai Chicken Rice stall. It's run by Tian Tian's ex-cook, and closes by 8PM :)

Celebrity chef and host Anthony Bourdain once said that the rice here is so good that you can eat it on its own. One of the most famous Hainanese chicken rice stalls in Singapore, Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice is located in the Maxwell Food Centre, with long queues forming in front of the stall every day.
