Curry chicken noodles in Singapore
Once upon a time, somebody decided that rice and bread weren’t good enough to accompany the glorious chicken curry, and decided to use noodles as a primary carb instead. And the rest is history. Unlike typical curry chicken, the curry in this dish also serves as a soup, and has to be toned down somewhat. Additional ingredients in the broth include taupok and fishcake, turning it into what some might call a laksa-esque dish. These people have no idea what they’re talking about. Here are some of the best curry chicken noodle stalls in Singapore.
1. Da Po Hainanese Chicken Rice And Noodles

Da Po Hainanese Chicken Rice and Curry Chicken Noodles is a worthy contester to the list of famous curry chicken noodle stalls in Singapore. What sets their Curry Chicken Noodle ($5) apart is the addition of pig’s skin and liver! This stall also uses their poached chicken, which makes it extremely tender and compatible with their springy noodles.
Address: 505 Beach Road, #B1-53, Golden Mile Food Centre, Singapore 199583
Opening hours: Tues-Sun 11am to 8pm
Tel: 9848 9949
2. Heng Kee Curry Chicken Noodles
Found on the first floor of Hong Lim Market & Food Centre, Heng Kee Curry Chicken Noodle has been around for decades. Their Curry Noodles ($5.50) come with bee hoon and thick yellow noodles, and it is topped with fishcake, potatoes, taupok, and a serving of poached chicken. But what sets them apart is their handmade chilli, which is limited to one saucer per customer. Queues here move at a snail’s pace, so pack your patience, and start queuing early!

Opening hours: Tue-Sat 10am to 3pm
3. Ah Heng Curry Chicken Noodles

Directly above Heng Kee is Ah Heng Curry Chicken Noodles. While they might use similar white bowls, Ah Heng is a far bigger operation. For one, it’s got two other branches, with one located at Golden Shoe, and the other at Queen Street. Their Curry Chicken Noodles ($6) comes with the usual suspects – poached chicken, taupok, potatoes, and fishcake, with additional toppings at an extra $1.
4. Cantonese Delights
Also located in Hong Lim, Cantonese Delights offers a very different dish from its neighbours’. First of all, mee kia is used in their Fried Chicken Cutlet Noodle ($4), and the chicken thigh is served fried instead of poached. The curry here is lighter and more like vegetable curry, but that just makes it less jelak.

Opening hours: Tue-Sun 8:30am to 3pm
5. Hock Hai Curry Chicken Noodle

You can’t miss the long queues for Hock Hai at Bedok Interchange Hawker Centre. This bowl of Curry Chicken Bee Hoon Mee ($4) is filled to the brim with ingredients and soup, and just the cheapest bowl is bound to fill you up. Despite its angry red colour, the soup is only mildly spicy, so add some of their free-flow sambal chilli for an extra kick of spiciness.
Address: 208B New Upper Changi Road, #01-58, Bedok Interchange Hawker Centre, Singapore 462208
Opening hours: Daily 9:30am to 11pm
6. Fu Hai Curry Chicken Noodle

Fu Hai Curry Chicken Noodle, not to be confused with Hock Hai, is another Michelin-recommended stall in Albert Food Centre. Their Curry Chicken Noodle ($5) uses chicken stock and Indian spices to create a flavourful gravy. It is also packed with tau pok, fish cake, and potatoes for a hearty meal.
Address: 270 Queen Street, #01-104, Albert Centre Market and Food Centre, Singapore 180270
Opening hours: Tues-Sun 9am to 11pm
7. Sheng Kee Curry Chicken Noodle

Another place to get a comforting bowl of piping hot curry soup is Sheng Kee Curry Chicken Noodles. Each bowl of Curry Chicken Noodle ($4) comes with freshly poached chicken and mildly spicy gravy that’s also perfect for those who can’t take too much heat. But if you enjoy spicy food, it’s highly recommended for you to add a spoonful of their house-made chilli, which brings out the curry flavour.
Address: 166 Jln Besar, #02-45, Berseh Food Centre, Singapore 208877
Opening hours: Daily 11am to 3pm
8. Yap’s Noodle
If you’re looking for an atas version of curry chicken noodles, you can consider going to Yap’s Noodles for Ipoh-style fare. At Yap’s Noodles, you can get premium add-ons such as roasted pork, jumbo prawns, and cheese. Their Curry Seafood Roasted Pork Noodles ($6.50) features a variety of seafood, and is topped with roasted pork for extra oomph. For this price, you are getting a generous serving of noodles packed with fresh ingredients.

Jian Zao Ipoh Curry Chicken Noodles may be a new entrant to the market, but they have already gathered a good amount of following for their Ipoh-style curry chicken noodles.
Uniquely enough, this stall adds lime and mint to their Signature Ipoh Curry Noodle ($5.50) as a garnish, for a refreshing cut through the unctuous broth. They also have their Dry Curry Chicken Noodle ($4.50), which features a thicker curry gravy with dark soy sauce.
Address: Blk 332, Ang Mo Kio Ave 1, Singapore 560332
Opening hours: Daily 9am to 5pm
10. Noodle House
When it comes to curry chicken noodles, Noodle House is not to be missed. Discreetly tucked in a Koufu food court in 478 Tampines Street 44, this humble stall came to light when a 67-year-old woman ordered 10 bowls of her favourite Curry Noodles ($3) just before the Phase 2 Heightened Alert (P2HA) was announced this year.
The owner of the stall was taken by surprise as the lady had managed to finish all 10 bowls within 45 minutes. She’d even commented that she planned to dabao for dinner as well! If this auntie approves of it, surely it’s worth a try.
Address: 478 Tampines Street 44, #01-221, Singapore 520478
Opening hours: Daily 6am to 12am
