The foods are nice but too crowded

All the foods are just nice especially the custard. But there is long queue before the getting seat. Terrible if you are big group of family. However, I do not find problem on staff. Their services was in average for a busy shop.

Truly good caramel custard! The other dishes e.g. satay, curry noodles, rice noodles soup are also very good. On the down side, little children may get very restless with the tight seating arrangements and noisy environment. The place has been getting a bad name for the service here. All the staff I engaged with were pleasant but we did experience... More

The birdnest pie or something....is very pricey at RM7/small piece. Overall the dim sum was average. Not too good and not too bad. Not many varieties just basic item.

I haven't expected such a terrible service. They made order mistake and then surprisingly, they blamed us. I can not believe it. The place is also terribly crowded and very hot. It does not deserve to wait there for a long time to find seats. Pudding was not bad, but it's quite a normal pudding. You can have same quality... More

The food is awesome here: Chicken and prawn Kuey Teow soup, bean sprout and chicken, pudding... If you just want some authentic local food, this is the right place. But, if want a comfortable place to enjoy the meal, you'll feel disappointed. It's very crowded and hot. They are very busy, so you have to find the seat yourself and... More

I had the pork stay as well, which is very good too. The chicken floss ho fun took sometime to serve but it was another good food in this... More

We were in Ipoh over the weekend and this coffeeshop was recommended by a friend to try the local food sold here. On that day of our visit, the place was crowded with the lunch crowd, but we managed to get a table. We ordered the famous Tricycle Chicken & Prawn Kuey Teow, 2 types of chee cheong fun and... More

You can find this coffeeshop are all packed with people throughout the day. A big thumbs up for their pork satay. Other foods (chicken hor fun and egg custard) are not bad too.

If I were given only one coffeeshop to go to in Ipoh, this is definitely the place. People love the hor fun here, but my favourites are the egg custard and ice coffee.

Ate 2 items here, the famous pork satay and Ipoh chee cheong fun. The pork satay skewer is so so, as we find it a little tough. The sauce is very delicious with a good portion of peanuts in it. The chee cheong fun is normal, and nothing out of the normal.
