    To be honest, I find the chicken rice taste below average. The service are bad too.

    Chick rice ball is not too bad at off peak hours. Coconut is good although it's from Thailand.

    The rice ball is pathetic size. Fish ball is bigger. Taste is ok but I would not recommend this place unless you are starving.

    I guess im lucky cos I don't have to queue up since it's 5pm. The rice balls are warm and the chicken is tenderly warm. Nothing like what review have said about this place except the dirty wet floor.

    Fried frozen durian is very goood. Rice ball is okay, otak2 is delicious, and satay is also okay. Not as bad as people review here in foursquare. For me the place is good and recomended.

    Tiong Hwa was full so I came here. Very rude waitress, no communication. Old one ask me to sit, the young one shouted at me for not queueing up. Need to raise my voice to order my food.

    Looking for Chung Wah but closed so tried Famosa. Rice balls were like dough. Bean sprout dry and chicken covered by thick fat skin. No more next time.

  • Ke Xin H.

    The food they served is cold. How can thy serve cold food to customers?! Not to mention the chicken rice ball is super duper small. And the worst part is their service sux to the max!! Worst

    Not sure why there's so many negative comments about this restaurant. The rice ball is tasty and the chicken is okay. It's worth a try
