Very consistent

Tried there many times and the food is always consistent and I feel their chicken is the best in Singapore.actually steamboat is soso but then the garlic chilli and the dark soya sauce with chicken rice makes the ordinary steamboat stands out.

1 bowl of rice not enough for me...at least 2

NEGATIVE

The food itself costs around $70 dollars but the ingredient isn't worth it ! The service is terrible ! I have not started eating yet they ask me to settle the bill ! I'm really disappointed in them ! I expected better results from them, but it was such a disappointment .. I don't support anyone to dine here! Having to eat something which cost around $70

It still holds a special place in my heart...

Have been coming here for a good old local steamboat since I was a little kid. This place holds very fond memories for me and to me, the chicken rice and  remains awesome for me. The steamboat was also very wholesome to drink. I used to down 4 to 5 bowls easily on top of 2 full bowls of rice. There's something about the food here are 'opens' my third stomach. Heh...

Today, my whole family came here for lunch and the chicken and rice still kicks butt, I found the soup base not as tasty somewhat. Dunno if it's because my tongue has gone slightly cuckoo, or maybe my brains just remember the 'good old times' to be always so much better?

I would still need to go there once in a whole for my steamboat chicken rice fix. :)

Many years of patronage

I have eaten here many times over the years. The beef steamboat is what drives me back. The chicken rice is good but the chicken itself can be a bit dry. The satay is one of the better chinese-made types. Hainanese pork chop can be a hit-or-miss depending on whether the chops come piping hot (which means very good) or warm/room temperature (which means not good). I like the eat-all-you-can chili and ginger sauces. But it seems that this place is losing its appeal somewhat - on ocassions, the steamboat stock seems to be just plain water, the beef is not sliced properly and evenly (to allow for each slice to be have a quick dip in the stock), kopi seems to get more diluted, and it can bbe really crowded. So, overall a "not sure" recommendation.

This steamboat place is really popular. I was there at 8, supposedly pass dinner time but the crowd just keeps coming in. I think that already goes to show how good the food is!

True enough, I loved my dinner there. Steamboat though was different from the more typical fish head steamboat, was really light and refreshing. The chicken rice was fragrant and chicken was succulent. The pork chop was fried till golden brown and served crispy with sweet and sour sauce!

Its really hard to get the attention of the staff though, so be prepared to wave your hands!
