Chen Fu Ji Fried Rice (Riverside Point)

AsianChineseLocalSingaporean
This Cantonese restaurant built its reputation on its imperial golden fried rice, based on a family recipe cooked to perfection, but today it serves lots more as well. Try the black pepper crab or paper-wrapped chicken, or if you're game for fusion food, there's also prata with crab claw on the menu.

My mom love it, happy mother's day

Due to their recent negative exposure on Wan Bao and Sin Ming, when we saw their mother’s day menu on facebook, we thought maybe there will be hidden cost.  We decide to give it a try Yesterday. Before we sat down, I wanted to make 100% sure the price of S$188++ is for our family of 4, not 1.  So I asked the captain who lead us into the restaurant and then again the manager who came to take order. The first dish was a double-boiled boneless chicken soup with odd-looking mushroom from Brazil, the taste was very rich.  Mom said it is very good.  Apparently little or no msg.  I am not sure if we are suppose to eat the mushroom, anyway, the soup was fantastic, the mushroom taste like dry wood. The prawn dish with special salted egg York is a hit with all of us. Size of prawn is not too big but each one of us got 2 prawn.  The veg that came with it has been treated with some kind of sauce too, the veg taste good with it.  Didn’t ask them what was on top of the veg as they were busy. Then came the fish.  We were expecting a frozen Sea Bass.  My mom said it is a Soon Hock, expensive fish yah.  It is steam, so it has to be fresh.  The worm like garnishing looks like Cordycep, known as cordycep flower.  It is now being used by many top-end Chinese restaurant.   I think they do serve good stuff. The spinach doufu is a common dish except for this one, you see a very thick layer of spinach. Looks like they don’t try to save on their cost.   No cheating at all.
 The scallop noodle with egg white fluffy was an innovative one, although very plain and children may not like it, it is exactly what my mom wanted. Lastly, the mango pudding, served individually, surprise surprise surprise, has mango in it.  A waiter told us this has been done in house with CFJ own recipe for the longest time. The final bill include ++ came up to about $240/- , drinks included.  I can’t say its expensive consider the innovation and quality of the dishes we eat.  We had a window table so the glittering riverview was a bonus to my mom.

Poor and Unprofessional Service

After hearing so much about that so called "Good Fried Rice", finally booked a table. Upon arrival, we were urshered to a small corner table, when we asked for a bigger table, the waiter said sorry not possible to arrange as all the tables were occupied. We booked a table for four but was given a

Overrated and Overpriced

Our family of four went to Chen Fu Ji last weekend which was supposedly good for it's fried rice. Turns out the fried rice was nothing great - just fried rice with some crab meat thrown in, not anything you can't get at your neighbourhood zhi char stall. The worst part though, was the pricing. The

Good Seafood!

Went there on Good Friday as my boyfriend was looking for something good along the Singapore River and we received their business card from a friend.

Did not know they were famous for their golden crab meat fried rice initially but the manager recommended we try a small portion ($25) to go with our

Very expensive fried rice!! And the portion TOO small. Poor value for money

My family of four (two adult and two children) went to this place supposedly famous for the fried rice. The service was courteous and acceptable. I ordered a golden fried rice for three person(charged $15 per head), seafood fried noodle(very small portion for $26!), small tofu seafood claypot, and
