This is a must try signature dish when you are at the restaurant. The chicken skin is super thin and crispy, making it worth every bit of your calories. Meat is fresh and you will never had enough of it after your first bite.
Menu is not overly expensive too. Highly recommended.


If not for the recent news that Moi Lum will be shutting down on 16 Mar 2019, I would never have guessed that this heritage restaurant has been around for close to 100 years😱! Before it closes for good, we headed down for a hearty lunch comprising Claypot Tofu, Sweet and Sour Pork, Sambal Kang Kong, Salted Egg Prawn and Majestic Roast Chicken ($140.50 for 9 pax). The food is generally decent (except for the sweet and sour pork which lacked crunch and was somewhat underwhelming) but what really stood out was their signature Majestic Roast Chicken, which was super juicy, tender and flavourful👍🏻 Glad to have one last meal there before it goes down in history!

The yum ring is crispy and the ingredients were generous! Nice!

Perfectly-roasted chicken from Moi Lum! The skin was crispy, while the meat was juicy, tender and perfectly cooked all the way through. The accompanying garlicky chilli sauce had a nice kick while the garlicky flavour complimented the chicken nicely. One of the best roast chicken around imo. Be sure to order this when you're here!


At the end of Peck Seah Street, this Cantonese stalwart offers set lunches under $10 — perfect for days when you don't want to battle the crowds or the heat at the nearby Maxwell Market. Go for the Traditional Cantonese Set Lunch ($8.90) and pick from one of six hearty mains like Cola chicken wings claypot rice or minced pork and salted fish rice. These wholesome sets include a bowl of homecooked soup and fresh fruit!
