This was my first time trying Claypot Chicken Rice. I had really high expectations for it, since many YouTubers that visited KL were making it sound like the greatest thing ever. So what was my experience? Based on people's advice I called 40 minutes in...advance, so I assumed that they could start cooking my claypot in before I arrived, much like Deep Dish Pizza or paella, both take about 35 or 40 minutes to make. So I arrive about 45 minutes after I called and was seated right away. Why did it take an additional 35 minutes to get my Claypot? I was really confused as to why I even bothered calling. After 35 minutes my food arrives. How was the food you ask? Chicken Claypot rice with Chinese sausage and salty fish: It was good. It's like Chinese Paella with the burnt crusty rice at the bottom of the claypot. But that's the thing. I was really expecting this life changing event eating this claypot. Like it was going to awaken my inner Asian and I was going to be transported to speak with the Ancestors, kind of like the Black Panther with the Heart Shaped Herb. But there was none of that. It was just good. It's just good flavored rice, moist chicken, Chinese sausage, and Chinese dry salted fish that will make you grow hair on your chest when you take a bite of it without rice. Would I eat it again? Sure. Would I wait that long for the claypot again? No. So there you have it. You. Will. Not. Turn. into the Asian Panther after eating it.More

This place is packed with people during dinner time. We got here just before 6pm on Sunday and managed to get the empty table without waiting. And we called 30 mins to order our food prior arrival. Upon arrival we will have to wait for...15 mins before being served. If you don't call minimum waiting time will be 30 mins after seated. Taste is OK nothing special but price is on the high side compare to other shops selling the same food. Don't think will come back hereMore

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

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

We had the chicken clay pot rice with extra Chinese sausage. Watercress soup, and pak choy. All were amazing. The chicken in the rice falls apart, it is so tender and has yum seasoning. Soup had chicken in it, and chicken feet, and the flavour...was very good. The vegetables still had some crunch and were not stringy like I have had before. So so good. RM50 for all of that food + 2 drinks. Great value.More
