This well-loved Hainanese restaurant is popular for its traditional steamboat and chicken rice. The steamboat sets are all fairly standard and the cooked food is complemented by the chilli sauce.
I enjoyed dining at this place not only for the food but the experience. This is a rare place whereby I can hear staff communicating in Hainanese with each other and some diners. It's rather refreshing for me. The food portion seemed to have shrunk over the years. The fresh chilli and ginger sauce had become somewhat saltier. But it's an overall enjoyable meal for the family. It's a loud and noisy place sometimes. Be warned. The staff speaks pretty loud. Haa....
Thien Kee Steamboat Restaurant has been around since the 1950s and my parents used to frequent this place on their dates. Thien Kee is a traditional Hainanese steamboat restaurant that serves Hainanese Chicken Rice with steamboat and the famous Hainanese Pork Chop. It's the sort of place that you hope will never disappear and you can bring your grand kids here one day to tell them the history. Read detailed review here!

We had Hainanese Chicken Rice as well as the Steamboat set.
The white chicken was tender and juicy. It went very well with the sour chicken rice chili.
The steamboat food items were very fresh and the soup base was sweet and clear. I loved dipping all the food items into the sour chicken rice chili and throwing them into my mouth with a spoonful of fragrant chicken rice. Perfect!
