The famous caramel custard is nice. Satay and Ipoh chicken slice noodles (kai see hor fun) is a must try as well

Good selection. Still run by locals instead of foreigners. Local taste maintained. Clean. Good lunch crowd.

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

The chicken rice next door is the best chicken rice that you can find in ipoh. The satay is a must to try (there's pork too). They also serve this delicious caramel custard. Taugeh chicken soup is ok for me. It is always crowded with lots of customers and need to wait for empty table. Shop next door is always... More

This was really delicious food, fabulous popiah, great beansprouts. Very busy for obvious reasons. They even cooked some meat specially for our baby and cut it up for her. Would love to go back.

My family hasn't made a point to have our lunch at Thean Chun since 4-5 years ago as none of us enjoyed the food there even though Ipoh is our home town and we are reluctant to bring our guests there as the quality is questionable and extremely high. It is for the tourists who do not know how it... More
