Had takeaway, still hot when home (about 10min drive). Chicken is tender, super crispy and crunchy skin, superb. Rice quite soft and would prefer to have more curry sauce as personally enjoy mor sauce on rice. Would reccomend!

I had a takeaway. I am using portions and quality of food as a benchmark. Portions: Rice filled less than half of my Corelle bowl. If you rely on the sustenance of carb to last during the day, you may want to add and pay for another scoop. Gravies in both of the fish curry and mutton dish were rather dry. Quality: The namesake, nasi kukus which means steam rice, was cold and clumpy. It taste too ordinary and not the steamed and fragrant rice I had anticipated. The saving grace was the ikan tongkol(tuna). It’s fresh and the steak was generous. The mutton on the other hand lacked colour and was dripping of oil rather than the spicy gravy. Finally they score just a little on the taste department.

A big piece of crispy chicken with egg, achar and curry. Not the most tasty meal, but value for money one. The queue may be long, but they serve every fast.

It's better than what I had in Kelantan! Strongly recommend the mutton and the signature fried chicken. The curry is very flavorful and bold, acar is very tasty and appetising. The sambal is not too spicy and yet great aroma to pair with the rice and the ingredients. You will surprise how tasty it is.

Utterly disappointed visiting this place after reading the some of the reviews. As a fellow food enthusiast, the food is not really worth all the hypes about this place. The single most important part of yes nasi kukus is the rice. But it may hv failed in so many different level. Its not soft fluffy well separated grains of rice, instead its some mushy normal rice cooker rice of little portion of compressed rice. The curry toppings is mehhh, no flavors at all but sugar. Other side dishes of achar and sambal belacan is very little given the price of 5sgd. The only acceptable part is the crispy chicken but also not flavorful enough. Given some of the reviews of this place as such comparison with the real kelantanese food, this place doesn't stand a chance at all.

$5 for nasi kukus with big fried chicken drumstick and “acha” Portion is big for 1.5pax. Overall is ok, chicken is crispy with slight spices seasoned. Just that the meat close to chicken bone has “frozen blood smell”. Still value to $ and worth to try

Used to be my favourite and I was shocked that the standard dropped so much. The fried chicken skin was so salty. The fried chicken was no long juicy. It was definitely frozen chicken now instead of fresh chicken in the past based on the colour of the bones. Not worth going back anymore.

Edit 3 (Dec 2023): Rated 4. Prices have come down though islandwide inflation. Portion size also now ok. Good they improved and not got overgreedy. Rating now 4 instead of 2 last year. Edit 2 (Nov 2022): Rated 2 from 4 It used to be great. But cost cutting by shrinkflation has made portions so small it doesn't fill me up anymore. Stopped visiting because I don't want to pay $6.5 to 8 in a kopitiam to go home hungry. You can make money, but getting greedy making regular customers feel cheated will bring bad karma, and business will fail over time.
