Alas, the kitchen has declined and they've become lazy enough to use MSG for the chicken soup. Simply unacceptable. The chicken is tender but the accompanying sauce has lost its aroma, being overwhelmed by saltiness.

Wee Nam Kee has been around since 1989, and is currently situated in an air-conditioned eatery at United Square. Their specialty is chicken rice. The white chicken which we ordered was flavourful but a little fat. The rice was a little too moist. We also ordered several other dishes like fish head curry, baby kailan (a green leafy veg), hot...

Been to this place a few times and the chicken rice is nice with a variety of chicken - steamed, roasted or braised in soya sauce. The curry fish head is pretty good too. Come for the food but the service is pretty bad. Not sure where they find the waitresses from but there's this one who shows her bad... More

A thumbs up to their hainanese chicken rice. My daughter loves it and my son love their rice. He only ate the rice and almost finished two order of it. The stir fried beef is also good. The assorted veggies is also good. You can also order fresh coconut juice. The overall experience is thumbs up.

The food is excellent and there are quite varieties not only chicken rice. However, the chicken rice is great. Also the other vegetable dishes are also fantastic. The services are okay as a whole.

My review is for the United Sq branch. People have mentioned that the other chicken rice shops along Balestier Road are the best. But for me personally Wee Nam Kee is the best. The chicken meat is succulent and juicy. The rice and soup are tasty. They provide ginger paste that adds flavour to the rice. Overall, the best chix... More

After a meeting near United Square in Novena I found Wee Nam Kee and decided to give it a try. The chicken was tender and juicy and the rice was just great. It's excellent value for the quality of the food. Highly recommend!

Very inexpensive, casual restaurant. Service was very friendly and food great. Quick service. Frequented by mostly locals, which is always a good sign. Their chicken rice was delicious.
