After so long, it still fails to disappoint... still the best in town. Service will be slow, expect waiting time of half an hour and above but the quality will not let you down. This place also purportedly hails the best egg custard in town. Smooth creamy texture.

A simple bowl of chicken shreds kueh teow in Ipoh. Still the best in town. Authentic and not too complicated as compared to some other establishment in town. A simple bowl of thean chun noodle is a must to complete your Ipoh food journey. Thean chun serve thefamous ipoh chicken kueh teow soup and the custard. The satay's stall is... More

Rustic, old-school cafe serves really smooth hor fun. Satay was also not bad. Expect a decently large crowd

No one would like to miss the good hawker food at Thean Chun. If you want to savor the pork satay, you have to go early because the specialty, intestine satay, won't wait for you. There are still so many good dishes, the egg custard, popiah, the chicken noodle and the bean sprout as well. The beef noodle is just... More

A definite kopitiam to visit for these two dishes as mentioned. Chicken shreds hor fun is very good, although in a short span of time the price has increased from RM3.50 to now RM5 per bowl. Custard is amazing as usual. Must eat it while it is still cold. Not recommended for their white coffee, too watery in my opinion.... More

Getting a parking space and a table at 8.30am (on a weekday) was not a problem at all. We understood why when we were told Kai See Hor Fun was not available until about 10am or so. Thumbs up for the egg custard that was sweet and velvety soft. My husband also enjoyed the chee cheong fun as it was... More

The chicken ho fun is good standard, however, one must prepare to wait for a long time, up to 90 minutes during peak lunch hours. I find that there are many other stalls comparable to this one but much better service. The owner of the stall is so rude and will ask you to leave if you ask questions such... More
