About Loy Kee Best Chicken Rice - Balestier

Without a doubt the staple of Singaporean cuisine, Chicken Rice is the first dish visitors to the island state need to try to kickstart their culinary journey. Loy Kee Best Chicken Rice is strongly rooted in tradition and has been going strong since 1953, when founder Loy Nie decided he would share his recipe and stringent principles of preparing the dish using only the freshest of ingredients. Sixty years later, flocks of hungry diners still make their way to Lee Koy’s on Balestier Road to eat the best chicken rice in town. Whether you head here or their other location in Woodlands, the real taste of Singapore awaits you.

tried the roast pork and cha Siew... this time so so .. should stick to the white chicken rice or roasted chicken rice.

as always never fails me. had the chicken porridge again with the mutton soup. surprisingly the mutton soup has all the herb smell and not the rancid mutton meat smell. great for 3 person and small family like mine.

Chicken meat was done well for both steam and roast. Very delicious! Except for their rice, I believe they use poor quality rice otherwise the fragrance and taste was good. They should use better quality rice to make their chicken rice be the best in Singapore and I shall rate 6 . The reason I rated 5 is due to poor quality rice used and my husband didn’t like the rice so chances for me to go back is Low though I like everything else that we ordered. Gor hiang was perfect and yummy.

chicken rice is the best thing must have in Singapore! Loy kee is one of the famous chicken rice restaurant in singapore. They offer a set menu with chicken, soup, rice and vegetable. Great for big eaters! The rice though is simply delicious.

Very nice lady bosses. Uncle also a very gentlemen who helped me and my baby girl finds a seat. Importantly also the chicken and the rice. Try the chilli and that is all you need. Mutton soup is nice for those who are adventurous.
