After two tries, we found the shop open. We wanted to have dinner but didn't know that they close at 4 pm. First impression of the place was good - quiet, clean, airy and comfortable. We had our meal al fresco, in the cool Cameron weather and light breeze blowing. Uncle Chow was a very pleasant guy to talk to... More

We came here as our first meal when we arrived in Cameron Highlands last weekend, after reading all the wonderful reviews about Uncle Chow's Kopitiam and had high expectations. And were let down terribly. Even if we were to go there without expectations, the food are still a far cry from being of a decent standard. Not sure if we... More

We rent an apartment in that area so it's location just a walking distance from my apartment. Owners are friendly, they are retired couple. After retired, stay and business there for 8 years. My family enjoy the breakfast there, prawn mee, mee soup, asam laksa and nyonya kuih are must try food. I recommended those.

Delicious home cooking by friendly owner in clean setting. Fried kuey teow is as good as it gets. As it poured with rain, the friendly owner kindly offered us a lift into town in his own car. What extraordinary hospitality! Highly recommend, but please note their opening hours: from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Uncle chow kopitiam serves delicious toast and eggs. What makes this place stands out is the hospitality shown by the owner. It was also surreal to watch the owner and his wife having a leisurely breakfast at the cafe entrance while reading their newspapers and enjoying the partial view of the highlands. The kopitiam is about 15min walk from the... More

Delicious tradisionals' home made foods and friendly service from Uncle Chow, the cafe owner. The scones and the kuey teow soup are delicious. Worth trying!

This place is a great little find, tucked away in the back streets. I ordered the Laksa and it was enormous. Excellent too. It's very much a place for locals.

We had Nasi Goreng Kampung and Nasi Lemak. Both were flat in taste and not up to the standard of even most roadside stalls. There was no trace of belacan, dried shrimps or tumis spices in the nasi goreng kampung while the nasi lemak's rendang was equally deprived of the necessary spices and not as fresh as expected. These two... More
