A pot of soup arrived first, followed by our chicken and bowls of rice. The dishes were simply plonked onto our round table and no one bothered to announce what the dish was. When the table was full (we ordered chicken, vegetables, braised eggs, some innards, rice and drinks), the sour-faced servers did not even bother to help rearrange dishes - they simply placed the additional items around whatever empty space they could see on our table (which also meant, at the edge by someone's elbow!)The vegetables were either too old or overcooked - it was hard to chew and tough! The chicken was nothing to rave about as well (disappointingly) - lacking tenderness and smoothness, that we felt the other chicken rice houses (i,.e. competitors) did much better even at their hawker stall outlets.Most importantly, the chicken rice itself did not posess the fragrant aroma of ginger-chicken broth at all. Granted, it was not very greasy, but the taste of a good bowl of chicken rice complements the chicken at times, especially when the chicken in question here was bland.Four of us spent a total of SGD$66.00, and with such service and food standards, rest assured that it was the first and last visit from any of us. It was a disappointing meal, to say the least.For more detailed information and photos, please feel free to visit:http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2014/08/lunch-at-wee-nam-kee-chicken-rice.html continue reading

Have not ate this chicken rice for a long time ever since it stop operations at Novena Ville. Was at United Square last week and so it gave us a reason to settle our lunch there. It is the first time I visited the United Square outlet, a big and aircon unit. Had to wait a while for a table cos the place was full though big! It is weird given that at their former Novena Ville outlet, the place was much more smaller with fewer tables, but we never have to wait for a table there. And, we had to share tables here too.Anyway, we decided to order the steamed white chicken for 2 pax plus rice, instead of the 1 pax chicken rice which is $4.80, an increase of $0.80 (used to be $4 at Novena Ville), I presume it is because of the now air conditioned premises and that it is now at a shopping mall instead of a coffeeshop. The chicken for 2 pax ($8.50) is actually a quarter chicken, and we ordered two fragrant chicken rice at $0.80 each. (Plain white rice is cheaper at $0.50.) Love the rice as usual, so fragrant and fluffy. And the quarter chicken is more than enough for the two of us, smooth and tender, so yummy! Satisfied!The place now also sells other dishes other than chicken rice, just like those dishes found in zhu chao stalls. So, it now is another place to consider for dinner if you want something more than chicken rice!  continue reading

I ordered their signature Wee Nam Kee Fried rice. What I like most is the real diced char siew meat unlike other stalls that put vegetarian char siew. When the fried rice is served to my table, can smell the nice and fragrant aroma. The rice grains do not stick to each other and have a good wok taste & fluffy too. The ingredients such as small shrimps are also very fresh. I always like to put their chicken rice chili into my fried rice and taste shiok. As for the service, the waiting time can be quite long during lunch hours but still worth it for the excellent fried rice. Overall, is a must try for all fried rice lovers ! continue reading

Wee Nam Kee has been around for ages now so you can always count on them to deliver awesome chicken rice. We ordered the half chicken ($16), with a mix of steamed and roasted chicken. We got the drumstick part for the roasted chicken! The proportion of steamed and roasted chicken were not very equal. There was more steamed chicken than roasted ones. However, as usual, the meat was tender and juicy. I find that the ginger and chili are one of the best that I've tried. We arrived around 7pm and got a table promptly as we were willing to split tables with other people. Wonderful chicken rice! continue reading

Wee Nam Kee Chicken Rice is reopened in United Square and it is packed with people on a weekday night. The restaurant is spacious and some tables are already reserved. My friend and I queue for 5 minutes and in the end we shared a big table with a mother and her daughter.The wet tower.Roast Chicken:We order a roast chicken set, which come with a plate of Cai Sim and a bowl of oil rice and a bowl of chicken soup. The chicken is beautifully done and is tender. We love this dish.Hainanese Chicken:For the Hainanese chicken, we also ordered a set. Instead of Cai Sim, we chose wonton soup as side dish. This chicken is not as good as the roast chicken. It is a bit too dry.Wonton Soup:This is the side dish of the Hainanese Chicken set. There are four wonton inside the chicken soup. It is quite a big portion as a side dish. And it is tasty too!We also order a plate of char siu & Siu yuk. The meet is too dry and there is no taste at all. The food quality in this restaurant is not so fantastic. But as a restaurant in the central, its good dining environment and affordable price can still attract a lot of people. continue reading
