We were taken here by Ipoh locals who suggested it was the best bean sprout chicken in Ipoh. The food was very good and not dry as other reviewers indicated. The service was good even if it took a few attempts to get drinks but friendly enough. I'd come back when next in Ipoh.

For me, nothing special. But still worth trying since it is a specialty food in Ipoh. What disgusted me was the workers. Literally, all the workers there smoke. I am fine if they smoke somewhere else but not near to the food area. Some even smoke while cleaning up the tables or chopping the chicken which was so unhygienic!!!!

Undoubtedbly, the steamed chicken is super soft and silky - but still fully cooked. This takes lots of skill. Bean sprouts were also done nicely - crunchy. The rice was OK, soup had sweetness of melon taste. However, the chicken and bean sprouts were basically "soy sauce" flavoured and not much more than that. They also use a lot of... More

The only possible explanation for the enduring popularity of Lou Wong is the chance that the food here must have once been good and that it caters for people passing through who don't know any better (or don't care). On my last visit here several months ago, the chicken was overcooked (and thus DRY) as was the rice noodles (and... More

Overall the comment and reviews that i have read regarding this restaurant food is good or very good. So I have very high expectation that it will be very delicious. Unfortunately, out of my expectation. Not nice. The chicken meat is hard and the rice too. I was thinking that maybe that was the taste of LOCAL people?

Business was too good, nothing special about the chicken, just a namesake. The bean sprouts do taste different but you can find the same sprouts at any other noodle stalls in Ipoh. Avoid dinner crowds, lunch is ok if you want to enjoy your meal without other customers waiting for your seats. I suggest your try other dishes in Ipoh... More
