Kitchen 65 is dainty about ingredient selections and replication of the indigenous flavor. Along with the nostalgic Nanyang-style decoration and featured South Asian dishes, customers will enjoy a time travel to the old-time Nanyang once they are sitting on the cozy sofa at Kitchen 65.
The two signature dishes of Hainan Chicken and Laksa are also brilliantly cooked in Kitchen 65. The meat of their Hainan Chicken is exceptionally tender and paired with the silky smooth skin; the 3 dipping sauces, chili, ginger and soy are rich in flavor yet dry. The Laksa in Kitchen 65 is available in different styles, the featured Tiger Prawn and Blood Cockle Laksa presents the traditional Nanyang flavor.

Not worth it Sep 01, 2011
Saw quite a number of good comments about this restaurant, I'm always searching for authentic Singapore/Malaysian cuisine in Hong Kong, therefore we came here for a try on a Saturday night as a family gathering dinner.
The moment we stepped in, the ambiance of the place is promising, I first thought I might have found another fav spot. But when the food came, the good impression just went off..
We ordered :
Laksa - This was probably the best in taste among the dishes we ordered.
Fried carrot cake - This was incredibly disappointing..the carrot cake itself was just so hard and to me it seems it has been cooked and left aside for too long.
Hainanise Chicken rice - Will give a marginal pass for this, nothing special though.
Fried vermicelli - This was served lukewarm, and extremely salty.
Chicken curry with Roti - The curry was simply bland, it was in fact tasteless !
Kaya Toast - Not even worth a try..Toastbox is just way tooooo much better
Can't really recall the rest of the food..there was just leftover, we did not bother to finish them..
For family of six we paid over $700, price is not a issue, but base on the quality of the food it is just not value for money at all.
Can't understand the hype it was given by other reviewers, you can just find much much better Singapore/Malaysian food from Satay Inn ( 皇家太平酒店）

Tasty & Authentic Singaporean Food! Dec 14, 2010
Visited this Singaporean restaurant last Friday for dinner, after a meeting I had in TST Miramar, after suddenly craving some chicken rice! While looking for a place with a friend of mine to eat, we were pleasantly surprised to find a place with a giant chicken rice picture!
After sitting down, the waiter (a girl who was a little bit cold!) served us and told us that of course, hainan chicken rice was their specialty - which we duly ordered! Other than that, we also ordered the mixed satays, and another traditional item, the barley tea.
Chicken Rice - no denying it, this was fantastic! Nice, oily pieces of tender meat with that signature chicken taste. The chef was also nice to give us the most juicy part of the chicken, which is of course, the thigh! Having tried the chicken rice in Singapore during a business trip, of course it wasn't as good, but it was quite close!
Satay - had a nice spicy kick, and surprisingly not too dry as usually most restaurants will make satays too dry!
Barley Tea - a bit tasteless, but refreshing nonetheless.
Overall, I would highly recommend Kitchen 65, if not only for the chicken rice, but for the nice environment and ambiance as well!
