Went there after an absence of few years. Restaurant was pretty empty - only about 3 other tables were occupied. The chilli sauce (an important component of chicken rice) is too watery and diluted. The senior old man manning the cashier till was not happy...More

This coffee shop has been surviving for at least 30 years... selling traditional hainanese chicken rice and roast pork. It is still delicious as before. However, from my opinion the shop need to Retro in order maintain it continuity.

This is a great place to visit if you want to experience what it was like eating at a local coffee shop in Singapore in the 1970s. It feels authentic and is really to be appreciated before the complete gentrification of this area of Singapore....More

This shop was recommended by a local and both of us ordered half a chicken and 2 bowls of rice. Service is really not friendly - rather abrupt with no smiles and the restaurant was not even half full. The chicken was lean and rice...More
