It will be nice to go during off peak season

It is always a great place for breakfast during off peak season. Everything will be okay. Uncle Chow is a friendly man while his wife is a good cook. Love their local kuih especially yam cake.

Found this cafe because of the love of searching good food. This cafe is run by a friendly and lovely couple. They chose this location because of the love for nature and cooling weather. They prepare the food with love. Dining there made me feel loved. Great place to enjoy a great meal ^^ *thumbs up*

Located away from the main road, Uncle Chow is a well known eatery & popular among the locals. The service was friendly & quick despite running full during lunch service. The nasi lemak was pretty good by Cameron Highlands standards, clearly not the best I have tried, but good enough. Loved the typical kopitiam decor & furnishing.

Was there for late lunch (3pm) with my husband and 22 months old son. Food was nice and decent. People are friendly and the place is clean. They didnt 'chase' us away even though it was time to close for the day.

They have nasi lemak, assam laksa, prawn mee, and etc. Also have kuih-muih and desserts. The food is nice but do fall short compared to the originals in Penang.... More

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.
