Having chicken rice balls in an old capitan days house... the asam fish was good, providing additional flavor to the tongue on top of the much sought after chicken rice balls.

The signature dish here is of course the Hainanese chicken served with rice balls. Other than the chicken, they also serve other dishes, which we have ordered Asam fish, cabbage and black bean soup. In my opinion, the rice balls are unique and the chopped chicken served in light soya sauce is nice. The chili sauce also tastes good. However... More

There is one dish on the menu Hainanese Chicken and Rice Balls. If you don't like that, don't go there. Pretty simple really. This place is crowded, noisy and runs at a breakneck pace. There is almost always a queue of locals and visitors outside waiting to get a seat, so that's testimony to the reputation of the food. Try... More

It is a restaurant with no long queue but reasonable taste of Chicken and Fish Head. But not much variety to choose from.

The food is great. Don't forget to try asam fish. Located in Jonker street, worth a visit. Service is very good and efficient.

This has always been my favourite place to dine when it comes to chicken rice ball. The chicken is tender and fresh. The rice balls are well done and they taste really good if you drizzle them with chilli sauce (mixed with dark sauce). They also serve a variety of side dishes including assam fish, fried cabbage and soup. I've... More

They come with some default set menu and recommendation of serving. I have 4 adults with 2 little toddlers. Ordered 4 person... More
