We got here around 6pm on Friday evening and we were able to get a table pretty quick. I got Hainan chicken rice plate with dark meat and my boyfriend got beef stew with pasta. I haven't been here for so long so it was nice to come back and see that their dishes still taste the same. The chicken was juicy. I love the rice so much (steamed in rice broth) since it was quite flavorful. I was able to try some beef stew and it was quite tender. The prices for the dishes haven't changed but I noticed the portion size for chicken is slightly less (which is understandable).
My favorite place for Hainan Chicken Rice. Been coming here for years and it's always delicious. Savoy Kitchen is easily missed if you don't recognize the location. They have street parking and a little lot across the street. The menu offers a variety of chicken, duck, pizza, and pasta. They also have daily specials that I have yet to try. I rarely stray from my usual meal here, but I heard the curry is good! I recommend eating in, because of the fact that you get an unlimited refill of that delicious ginger sauce! I soak that stuff all over my chicken and rice. The red sauce is pretty good too, but that ginger garlic though! It's the bees knees! Quite recently I tried a bit of the Cornish hen, and I love how crispy it was. Could definitely see that dish being part of my rotation. Though it's also one of those dishes that you have to eat while at the restaurant, I don't think the crispy skin would age well if you opt for take out. Glad that my go to Hainan Chicken spot is still going strong! They also accept card now!
They're considered one of the top places in SoCal for Hainan Chicken and they also offer a lot of fusion food like pasta + pizza + escargot. Despite not being the best Hainan Chicken I've had in California, it's still pretty good and worth trying. As of their other dishes, they're hits or misses. They have a dedicated free parking lot right across the street. For dining in, they only have limited outdoor seatings so expect to wait 20-30 minutes during busy times. It can get chilly at night so bring a jacket. I do recommend trying it out. Expect to pay $20-30 per person.
Greatly enjoyed my Hainan chicken here. Sat outside in the veranda on a sprinkly Monday. Got dark meat (+$1) and glad to see that they actually give you a large decent amount. Though this wasn't the best Hainan chicken I've had, for the price and convenience, I'm not mad.
Savoy is an iconic restaurant to the locals. It is a small little joint where if you don’t come early enough or come at the right time, seating will take a while to find. You can either togo some of the food or try to wait to find a seat. On the left hand side you’ll see a small outdoors seating area. While on the right hand side you’ll see you can order stuff togo inside. Came here during a hot summer day. The seats do have canopy in general to cover you from the sun but it is outside. Once seated, you order normally and then the food comes out through the little hole that gets delivered to you. Got the hainan chicken with beef curry. The hainan chicken was moist and tender. The sauces were okay. You get a salted ginger oil (salted ground ginger in oil), creamier? Sambal sauce, house soy sauce?. I ended up using the middle sauce which was their own version of a sambal sauce. The beef curry wasn’t like that of your typical Indian or Japanese style curry, slightly different. It was more on the savory side and not that sweet. Definitely on the heavier savory side. Now the highlight of this place is definitely their escargot. They first bring out pieces of these fluffy warm bread pieces. You can eat some right away or save it to dip it in their fluffy airy herb salted butter. The escargot was amazing. The way they prepared it almost made it seemed like you were eating a mushroom. Flavor and texture really gets you to think it’s a mushroom. The salted butter as well had a light airy herb like feel to it. Overall the best thing I’ve had here and would come back if I was in the area was their escargot. I would say for the price it’s pretty worth it, not too expensive and portions are on point. They also changed it so you can pay with card.
