Came here with my mother and as usual taste just as good as it did before. Definitely a recommendation to any foodie or local. Expect a long line around 6-7pm though.

Came here for late lunch and had 2portion of Claypot chicken rice@ RM25, 1 small rice wine chicken RM 35 and 1 small watercress soup @ RM 8 Total bill came up to RM 68 for 2 pax Personally I think the claypot chicken are...fluffly but tasted average. However the chicken meat are in good portion for 2pax and are not stingy. Salted fish are not salty kind. The only thing that I like was it’s uses charcoal, so price will be more expensive than normal conventional gas stove. The rice wine chicken was better than the claypot rice to be honest. The flavors are intense but the portion seem Thad small Watercress soup is nice and less oily but seem salty after drinking it. Would revisit if I ever at the vicinity of pudu only.More

Went there after having read the reviews.Was not disappointed.It had a large variety of dishes but we ordered their signature chicken claypot and a separate dish of vegetables.Chicken claypot with sausages,mushrooms and salt fish was very tasty and rice was cooked to right temperature. You...could count the rice!Service excellent.More

We took a cab down just for this and it's rather disappointing. It's just a normal claypot restaurant that scoop rice into the claypot and call it claypot rice. We have plenty of good claypot rice in Singapore. Don't have to come this far.

Heun Kee has been featured in several local food TV shows: 1) Axian by Astro several years ago 2) Ho Chak by 8TV in 2018. The claypot chicken rice is one of the best around, as it's still being cooked the traditional way using charcoal...stoves. The rice is served with a tiny portion of salted fish in tin cup. Make sure you mix the salted fish oil thoroughly with the rice before you eat. The lady boss was around the last time I went in June 2018. She is happy to take your orders, and the rest of the crew share her passion.More

It was a bit of an effort getting to Heun Kee but I wanted to try what is regarded as the best claypot chicken in KL. Anyway, i was the first customer in the shop right on 11am. I decided on the claypot chicken with...drumsticks, a plate of kailan and an appetizer of chicken wings. I really enjoyed the meal. The claypot chicken had this crust on it that was crunchy and tasty. Seeing the two cooks out the front of the restaurant plying their trade with the claypots being cooked on rustic charcoal stoves was great. I’m sure I will be back again!More

Before you read further, if you have already made up your mind to go down to this place, for goodness sake call & make a booking on your time & day of arrival. Else be prepared to wait one to one half hours! This family...operated restaurant is one of those few old school claypot chicken rice that still uses charcoal to fire up the claypot. Chicken parts are very well marinated- you can taste it down to the bone, and everything is cooked from scratch. Other dishes worth trying is their fried chicken wings, innards soup & salted fish bean sprouts. If you pre-order, wait time is between 20-30 mins. Worth a visit!More
