Famous for it's chicken soup noodles, the caramel custard is also a must try if you visit this coffee shop. Be there early as it sell off fast on weekends

Went there for a Sunday brunch. Had the prawn broth with julienned chicken hor fun (kai si hor fun), beef balls noodles, pork and pig intestines satay, and rice sheets with mushroom sauce (chee cheong fun) from the vendors and flan (tun taan) from the coffeeshop. One word: bloody good! Totally worth coming to ipoh just for these items.

When there recently with my mother and found that most of the food had drop its quality due the changes of the food bosses. Prefer the old time food where the taste is superb.

Crave for their signature meals which known as the chicken slice hor-fun, it really tastes good surprisingly as the noodles are smooth enough for you to sip into your mouth. I would say there will be no other place can offer such a nice chicken slice hor-fun in Ipoh other from here. I was having breakfast at there and definitely... More

if we want to eat chicken hor fun in Ipoh, without a doubt, we would go to Thean Chun. The parking is bad and the place is usually crowded and stuffy. The wait can be pretty long. I remember the first time i was there, i was fuming mad as we waited really long. I mean, how long does it... More

Very great local food housed in a traditional Chinese coffee shop. Make sure you try the caramel pudding (which sells very fast, better go in the morning), pork satay, popiah and lobak from next door, and also the chicken hor fun.

We were here on a Friday and was worried that it will be hard to get a seat since its so famous. Luckily place wasnt as pack as we thought. There were still 1-2 empty tables. The hor fun soup was slightly sweeter than those I've tried in KL - probably the sweetness from the prawns or something. Definitely worth... More

Stay away if you are not wiling to wait as it is very crowded during weekend. Ipoh Hor Fun was good and worth the wait. Will be back !!
