    You Kee XO is one of my favourite takeaway meal places. Good customer service. Their dishes are tasty, affordable and generous food portions. These days I get smaller food portions from other restaurants but not here at YKX.

    We order the combi platter on roast duck, roast pork and char-siew. The roast duck is excellent and best of the 3. The roast pork skin is crisp but very high fat to meat ratio which is not too my liking. The char-siew is cold, too lean and tough. The noodle is springy and soup of the day, ginseng chicken, is tasty.

    A bit on the sweet side. The roast meats are fatty that melts in your mouth, with a good balance of crunchiness due to burnt edges. Fish head had lots of scales on it, which impedes full enjoyment.

    The place is clean. And the dishes were exemplary. We had the mixed vegetables in sambal which had ikan bilis toppings , claypot brinjal , char siew and the pork rolls . Looking at the menu, they have reasonable rice dishes as well like chicken rice, char sure rice and so on. Aa must visit again place. …

    I went back to this eatery after about 2 months. Unfortunately, they have increased the price after the 1% GST kicked in. My usual cha siew and pork rice have increase by about $2. I noticed the usual waiters and waitresses no more working there. The new staff not so friendly, very unfortunately. The older staff will usually talk to me as I am quite a regular customer there and they will say thank you to you after passing you the food. The present staff don’t have that warmth… However, food still ok. But portion still same though price have increased.

    The char siew and duck is really good! Char siew has a nice caramelised, crispy exterior with juicy insides. Duck is tender and delicious. The noodle is Q-y and bouncy, an absolute joy to put it in your mouth. Roast chicken is not bad too, soft and tender. The herbal chicken soup is not the strongest I’ve tasted but it’s good too.

    I have been patronising this restaurant in Joo Chiat for more than a year due to the consistency in their food quality. They have one of the best soups ever and are sold in limited servings daily. The char siew is incredibly popular as it simply melts in the mouth. My another recommendation will be their handmade tofu too. Roasted delights fans, you have to give it a go at this restaurant. You won’t be disappointed! 10/10 will recommend.

    Went to check out the You Kee Xo branch in Singapore as I loved the food at the KSL mall branch. I ordered Charsiew rice, roasted chicken and charsiew noodles and the signature homemade beancurd. Their char siew is good it is not as good as the Johor branch because their charsiew was more charred and tough. Portion size of the meat was less than Johor branch. I really enjoyed the homemade beancurd though. There is an open air carpark opposite the restaurant.

    Giving this 5 stars for their tasty char siew. One of the best I’ve had even though it’s a take-away. The char siew is juicy, tender and sweet. Those who love fatty char siew will want more of this.

    Roasted duck is average to me, didn’t try other parts of the duck to give a full review. Although the duck skin tasted delicious and well seasoned.

    Siew yuk is also very tender and juicy. Although would be better if the skin is crispy, but understandable since it’s a take-away.

    Will visit the actual shop in person next time.

    Would give this a 4 star, in comparison to the You Kee in Malaysia.

    My favourite was the char siew which has that blend of honey glazed sweetness meets charring of the char siew. Roasted pork was also crispy and decent. The duck was a miss for me. The hot plate tofu was slightly on the salty side but does go well with rice.

    The char siew and sio bak are exceptional. The char siew is half fat and marinade Malaysia style where it’s served without any sauces. All the flavour is locked in. The sio bak skin is crispy AF. Noodles are perfect al dente. It’s not like the local mee kia, more like thin ramen in texture. Well worth traveling for.

    So much to say about this place – brings you back to JB without crossing the causeway. The meats are on point, the char siew has a nice char to the skin and the meat:fat ratio is perfect, duck is not overly dry (sauce complements the duck perfectly) and the siewyok’s skin passes the crunch test. The daily soup is a must order! It’s charcoal boiled in an urn and you could taste the herbs and nutrients from the ingredients every mouthful. Go for the noodles, which has this sauce that goes very well with it. This is truly a hidden gem in Joo Chiat.

    Had the char Siew noodles. I like that they used egg noodles and not the alkaline noodles. It was al dente and satisfying. Ate it mostly with the green chilli as their chilli on the side is more like chicken rice style of chilli and doesn’t go well with noodles.

    Other reviews mentioned that the char siew had a good mix of lean and fattiness but I think my plate of char siew was too fat. Every bite was pure fats and there was hardly any lean meat to it. It was just too much, too sinful. My friend said her plate of char siew on her rice was quite lean.

    Regardless, it was still quite enjoyable. But just note to self to request for a more balanced cut of the meat the next time round.

    Easily the BEST char siew in Singapore and possibly everywhere else. I bring family and friends and always tell them how this char siew is just LIFE CHANGING. It melts in your mouth, has the right amount of char and tastes just right.
    Always have it with the noodles that are springy with pork lard.

    The other awesome dishes to try: the volcanic tofu, soup of the day (double broiled traditionally).

    The service could be improved, the staff seems very unmotivated most times and are not very attentive

    Roast Pork and Char Siew is always good as usual. However, seems that the roast duck is not as tasty as before. Recently, lesser of the roast duck breast meat came with the skin, today 1/3 of the roast duck meat came with skin, sad to say. The skin for roast meat is always the highlight of HK roast.

    Roast meats place from Malaysia. The fact they opened in a shop house in the middle of nowhere (sorry Joo Chiat) tells you the confidence they have in their food. And they do not disappoint. Their roast duck is heavenly (and not oily). They also serve wonderful herbal soup, which helps lessen the guilt of all those calories you’re ingesting. It’s a tad expensive though but worth the price!

    Ordered the small meat platter for around $25. The char siu was okay, slightly sweet, and we liked the mix of sesame seeds. The crispy pork was not as crispy as hoped and some of the pieces were hard to chew through. The duck was good, especially with the sauce. Our favourite dish was actually the claypot brinjal with minced pork, which had a nice flavour without being too overpowering. We both ordered sour plum drinks, which was pretty disappointing. Lunch was over $40 which we thought was a little expensive.

    I used to go to this restaurant a lot. The portions of the dishes are just right. The soup tastes authentic, but you have to go early. If you go at night, it is likely to be sold out. Pork belly pot and volcanic tofu taste great, must order every time. Roast meat is also very good, and the price is very high. The old shop is full of repeat customers. They seldom come here after moving. This time I come back to the East to eat here. It still tastes the same. Five-star recommendation.

    There are 2 things here that I feel is definitely above the pack – the char siew and the soup of the day. The char siew may look overly charred but it does not feel so when eating it. It has that very delicate sweet bbq aroma, and the meat is soft though it is not the fatty kind. The soup is very rich from boiling and simmering for many hours. And the environment is very clean and pleasant which is a plus.

    Super good food. Prices reasonable. Have not been there for past 2 years due to COVID-19. Went back today and try. Standard is the best. Double boiled soup damn good especially when you drink it during raining day. It warm your body up. 3 different roasted meat super juicy and pork belly with salted fish damn delicious. Will go back and eat again.

    Really love their Char Siew. I think it is among my top 3, however, I am very disappointed with the Pork belly with salted fish. Not that the dish tasted bad, but I couldn’t taste nor find any salted fish at all. The Volcano tofu was not up to my colleague’s expectation too, as it was not fried properly, like what she had in JB

    Hope to be able to visit the JB outlet soon. Should be better value and taste better.

    Have always loved going to their outlets in Malaysia and now I get to eat it in SG too!

    Always the best place to go for char Siew. their signature tofu and boiled soup Is a must order.

    Also tried their fish curry today – the fried tau kee skin and the fish was really fresh which made it extra yummy.

    Usually not a fan of yam but their yam ring was really nice as well

    Highly recommend this place.

    Pictured is the takeaway meat platter, which garnered my 5 vote. Frankly though, some hit and miss lah:

    1) the best by a mile is the char siew, usually sells out before dinner
    2) roast duck was delicious too, just some bits a tad boney
    3) roast pork I’d pass unless you’re dining in, doesn’t travel well when takeaway

    Since then, been back a couple of times. Best value is the rice or noodles dishes because they come with decent amounts of meat.

    This was our fave duck destinin JB (KSL) and thankfully given that we cant travel up north since beginning of the year, we can still satisfy the roasted triple meats at their Singapore outlet at joo chiat. Tender duck meat, char char siew and crunchy pork belly and add in the bouncy noodles, this is a great place to pig out.

    Char siew and sio bak is on point. Service is friendly and quick. However for $7.80, serving is really small. Meat used is premium, perhaps adjust pricing and provide more meat

    The roast Duck meat is ok but disappointed with the noodle. Ordered the dry version but they don’t served with any sambal chilli or in-house chilli. Asked me whether I want thr chicken rice chilli. I think better choice to choose the meat with rice.

    For $7 what I got was a miserable amount of char siew and roast pork in small slices. Chan Kwong Kee is still my favorite for roast meat, and OAR hawker center for caramelized melt in your mouth Char Siew. But the Zi Char dish I ordered in You Kee was surprisely good and I might come back for the Zi Char, certainly not the roast.

    Easily my fave spot to get my char siew fix. Their char siew is the best in my humble opinion. It’s a balanced mix of lean and fattiness makes its super tender and succulent without it being overly dry or overly greasy. I can’t really do justice with words or articulate it well but it’s definitely worth going out of the way to visit You Kee XO!

    Would return, would recommend.

    A corner establishment dedicated to roast meats, with fast service and ample patio like seating. Portions on lower end.

    Roast Pork – kind of a stingey cut, thin slices with barely enough crispy skin. It was tender and fatty and I wish they were more generous.

    BBQ pork/char Siew – delicious. Candy like stickiness, deep savoury sweet flavours. Wish there’s more. Quite chewy and not like your traditional char siew.

    Duck – not much fat, quite lean and thin skin. Was cold. Very juicy. High quality but par for expectations.

    Overall we added the roast pork for $2.5 and feel like they were very skimpy on the portion. Worth the trip out here. $7-$15pp.

    Went at 5.45pm on a Sunday for dinner, they were out of most items surprisingly. Had to order the roast pork, which was a lot saltier than their usual standards. Server and cashier also had a bit of attitude, maybe they didn’t like the roast pork too. The claypot bean curd also turned out a little more salty than usual. Think I will give them a rest and see if they get their act together. Maybe it was from being closed during the lockdown.

    Pork Belly Char Siew Rice is the best seller. Specially brewed soup and the Ngoh Hiang are nice too.

    A very nice open air restaurant at the junction off Tembeling Road near Joo Chiat. There is a big open air carpark diagonally opposite the shop. Nearest bus stop with bus number 33 stops near the carpark too.

    A highly recommended place to dine if you miss Malaysian style char siew, roasted duck, roasted pork and chicken. Sometimes popular dishes get sold out by lunch hour.

    Absolutely incredible Char Siew and Siew Yoke. Char Siew is honestly the best char siew i’ve ever sad and their beancurd and noodles area also very yums! If you are up to it try their soup as well, reminds me of very old school homey soups that grandma would make. Gabriel also has been an incredible help when making orders and has incredible customer service skills

    Very pleasant & polite service staff. Meat platter (the chilli is so good) & signature tofu were awesome – the tofu gravy goes so well with jasmine rice. The stir-fried vegetable (nai bai) was crunchy & nice. (Unsure if its just me … the roast duck was a little salty. If its less salty, it will be perfect). Their soup was sold out again. … To avoid disappointment, staff mentioned to call and make reservation.

    Taste is one of the closest to Malaysia. The soup is very strong flavour. The tofu is super good too, soft and smooth. The salted pork belly claypot is not as flavourful from the one I ate in Malaysia. Overall is good. But just the pricing is at high side comparing to the portion.

    We’ve been frequenting You Kee XO for a couple of years now and this year, decided to give their CNY set a try. It was one of the best decision ever – price was affordable yet standards and quality of the food remains unchanged (many restaurants would’ve charged a bomb with lackluster food). It was only after the meal that we realised the fish was missing. Called up the restaurant and the service crew apologized profusely (many of their workers had returned to their homes for CNY and they had to get more manpower from their msia outlets thus the confusion). We requested for the fish to be swapped with their meat platter and ordered more food for chu 15. While picking the items up the service crew said they’ve got a surprise(lol) for us. Not only was the fish prepared for us, they also gave us the massive meat platter FOC (along with a duck drumstick, they remembered my mom loves the drumstick). Their food has always been amazing and it’s truly hard to come by an eatery that has maintained their standards over the years but what really sticks is the amazing service. Definitely returning again next CNY and no, this isn’t a paid review BUT please do give You Kee XO a try – you won’t regret it.

    PS: My mom wanted me to add that the amazing service crew attending to her throughout was Gabriel who was temporarily transferred over from the JB branch.

    There are many places in Singapore selling roasted meats with rice or noodles. Some are good and a few are excellent. You Kee XO is excellent. Their roast pork was crispy and full of flavor with the right balance if fat and lean meat. My wife had roast chicken and char siu noodles which she loved. She was so impressed with the chicken that she insisted I should try a piece. She was right: it was moist and full of flavor. They also have an amazing menu with fish and vegetable dishes. We will return with a larger number of people to take full advantage of their menu. The service was friendly and efficient. A great meal.
