Got there just before the lunch rush at noon. Order a single serving of Hainanese chicken, roasted chicken, BBQ pork + roasted pork and one bowl of chicken rice. The chickens were good but definitely better ones out there. The roasted pork was actually my favorite, with the roasted chicken being my least. The rice was standard chicken rice; not bad but not good either. We ordered a second serving of the BBQ + roasted pork as it was really good. Interestingly, we found the 2nd plate was better then the 1st as it looked and tasted fresher; it seems the first plate was prepared way in advance for the lunch crowd and probably sat there for awhile. Service was okay and we didn't felt too rush despite taking extra time to explore the menu before ordering.

This is a restaurant that locals also goes to.
It’s located in the heart of KL Chinatown. Try to arrive a little bit earlier to avoid waiting in line. There are many other delicatessen that you can also order other than the famous Hainanses chicken with rice. But make sure you also try the special sauce that goes with the chicken.

Cash only
