Chicken rice ball getting smaller but tasty. Chicken very thin and not much meat. Foods there slightly expensive.

Visited during the weekend and the queue is very long. The chicken rice ball is very nice. The hainan chicken is smooth and juciy. Do come early eg before 10am to avoid long queue.

Never tried eating alone. But their price are: Whole chicken - Rm44.60 Half chicken - Rm22.30 Rice ball is - Rm0.40 each. (5 balls per serving) I guess your can expect a bill of Rm25.00!
Can we have 2 double beds in the room as we are 2 adults and 2 kids, 11 and 12
