Its hard to add to what everyone has already said about this place.

But for the money, it is one of the best restaurants I have eaten at. The food was delicious. My pumpkin soup was to die for. I only got 3 courses and it filled me up. I

Very, very small restaurant, so try to order take out if possible. The Hainan Chicken is very popular, as are the Shrimp Egg Rolls. Try them both if you get the chance!

The hainan chicken here is the best. I'm normally not a fan of this dish, but savoy is a different story. The place is kind of small, but you get a choice of sitting inside or outside. The food is pretty cheap so go try it out.

Savoy is a small restaurant but it has some great food at reasonable prices. The Hainan chicken is a highlight as are the shrimp roles. They also have pizzas, salads, currys, and pastas that are all good. The majority of the good is asianized italian food. There's patio seating which is nice and if it gets too hot, they turn on the misters outside. Closed on Sundays. Great place to go anytime.

Having read the one negative review here regarding the Hainan Chicken Rice at Savoy, I feel it necessary to point out that, while far from a "traditional" Hainan Chicken Rice, it is still incredibly tasty, and excellent flavor should never be neglected due to the recipe being "tainted" by changing some things.
No, the chicken doesn't have yellow skin, nor is the chili the right sort. The ginger has no green onions in it, and the soy sauce isn't thick.
So if you're looking for a genuine Hainan Chicken Rice experience, then look elsewhere. If you're looking for a tasty meal at a decent price, definitely check Savoy out.
And on the note of tasty meals, the escargot and baked halibut are also quite amazing, not to mention the pizzas and pastas. I have yet to find anything on the menu that I don't enjoy.

However, if you are a vegetarian, or have vegetarian friends, Savoy may not be the best place to go. While they have a "margarita" pizza, there is little on the menu that doesn't have some form of meat in it.

I really enjoyed the hainan chicken dish here. The rice was so flavorful after being cooked with chicken stock. They also give a really good amount of chicken for a very decent and affordable price. It tastes amazing after you mix it with the ginger oil, soy sauce, and hot sauce. The restaurant itself is a bit small and cramped, which can mean a long wait almost any time of the day due to its popularity. Still, I think it's worth the wait and I would definitely go back again.

Pros: low prices, great hainan chicken dish

Cons: limited parking, extremely limited amount of seats

Wha a REAL Hainan Chicken (with rice) should be:
1. Chicken should be used with the "yellow feather", definitely not from foster farms (if you know what I mean). Not frozen and no extra fat in skin.
2. The chicken should be marinated before cooking, and should be very tender
3. "oil" rice should have excellent aroma and definitely not oiley.
4. Chili sauce should be "special made", not off the shelf ones.

After reading all the good reviews, I was excited to go to this place (from NorCal) for some good hainan chicken.......and I was very disappointed.

The place is pretty packed and service is not bad. Ordered the "famous" Hainan Chicken and also Curry Beef Stew.....

They used Foster Farms Chicken (frozen), steamed and simply put on top of the oiley (literally) rice.

Chicken is tasteless and extremely fat with skin. The reason why the rice is so oiley is because they cook the rice with all the OIL from the chicken. All you can taste is just the OIL. no flavors whatsoever.

The curry beef stew is just average. nothing special.

Service is not bad, but the food is pretty lousy.

If you are trying to eat semi-healthy the Hainan Chicken is the way to go. The chicken is poached and served on top of chicken flavored rice. The rice & sauce is oily so I that is why I say "semi-healthy". The dish comes with two very tasty sauces - ginger & hot sauce.

Great food for everyone! Great for a quick bite or sharing a cultural dining experience with a friend or two. The restaurant is a bit small but the wait staff is efficient and friendly.
The Hanian Chicken is a traditional dish but enjoyed by all! A must have!!

Ive been here three times and the only thing I ever get is the Hainan Chicken Rice, which is rice steamed in chicken broth and poached chicken served with a ginger sauce and a chili sauce. Theres nothing special about the chicken itself, but its the sauce that adds all the flavor. I like the ginger sauce, but they only give you a small portion of it so you need to ask for more if you want more. For the price ($5.75), you really cant go wrong. The portions are filling and the taste is great. It is a very small restaurant though so expect to wait when you get there. We usually never have to wait longer than 15 minutes.

This place is great. It has a very quaint and cozy atmosphere. You can sit outside and dine under it's christmas tree lights. The server there is really friendly and quite comical. The menu is very affordable and the food there is a must. I would definitely recomend the duck pasta or hainan chicken.

This crowded house has been in business for a long, long time and I'm sure they'll be around for as long as they keep on serving good food. One item I should strongly point out is their "Hainan Chicken" rice, man the portions are adequate and the taste is just amazing and I couldn't think of anybody that can make this better than them! I only go there for that, the priced item cost a bit more compare to elsewhere, but you won't get it as good as here. The drawback: they closed on Sundays???

Savoy is so tiny that it could not seat more than 20 people, but everything they serve is right on the money. Good quality food at very reasonable prices!

I agree that their Hainan Chicken was delicious ! The place was quaint. This place is one of those that is not the most "elegant" restaurant but their food is delicious. Parking was difficult though.
