To me, it is just normal only

It is famous with the steam chicken, meat ball and bean sprout. I personally like their meat ball as it is really big where we can't get outside. It is chewy. The bean sprout is nice too. But, the chicken is normal only while the rice is oily which I don't like. I feel that the hygiene at the... read more

With the ever increasing traffic of tourists making their way to Ipoh year on year, it seems that Lou Wong has chosen to ride the wave into commercialization. The service has gone terribly slow and with a hint of arrogance. The chicken rice or hor fun has gone bland and tasteless, a far cry from what they used to serve... More

The chicken is not very special. But more tasty than usual chicken rice outside. The bean sprout wise is very nice. Much nicer than those outside. Maybe the species is different. Anyway, it is not very special and not too worth for long wait.

First of all, the wait is acceptable even when we arrived at a very crowded place and the whole eatery is some how being operated like a factory...you get your own table and wait for the serving staff. We waited for a while when we got our tables and despite repeated call for attention, the staff simply ignored till the... More

I don't think there's any restaurants in the world can be so famous by just selling bean sprouts and chicken. The meal is served with chicken rice. Light and hearty meal. Chicken and bean sprouts are blanced and sprinkle with light soy sauce and scallions.

I have never thought bean sprout can be such a delicious dish. Their sauce is extremely great, it matches chicken and bean sprout very much. Once I ate the chicken rice here, I can not accept chicken rice in other chain stores. If you go to Ipoh, you should try bean sprout and chicken rice here. Service is ok, if... More

The place to go to enjoy authentic chicken rice in Ipoh. Located in the old town of Ipoh, the crowded, warm , stuffy place serves juicy steamed white chicken with excellent stemed rice boiled in chicken broth.It also serves roasted chicken. The steamed chicken goes well with hot Chinese tea and the the famous taugeh (Bean sprouts). The taugeh is... More

Definitely worth a visit. My Japanese wife wanted to visit this shop for their chicken rice. Was good and we were not disappointed. As usual I wished I ordered double portion as the sizes are smaller than in Australia...
