It is aircon and open late till 10pm (last order around 9pm). Must try is the set of Four Seasons tea pudding, made of Japanese green tea, jasmine, wulong tea etc, notwithstanding that the teas are mostly Taiwanese brands. I personally would buy tea from the two remaining old tea houses - of which Leong Swee Sang Tea Merchant (36... More

Can enjoy the variety of tea and sweets. Food is also all inspired from tea, and taste is so-so some of them, but sweets are almost very tasty. Can enjoy the atmosphere, and interior.

The food selection is very good and the meals are healthy, of good quality and delicious and reasonably priced. The desserts are delicious too. It is a nicely set out eating place part of a tea shop where there are all sorts of interesting items to look at. A must to eat at while in Ipoh.

I just loved this place and its people. The service was very friendly and always trying to help with choosing the right kind of tea. I was walking on a very hot day and I was adviced by some local guy to try this place out. When I entered all was so cozy and clean, the decoration so peaceful and... More

Visiting Purple Cane is an opportunity to savour various types of tea in a very nice ambience. After you have decided which tea you like, you can place your order for a packet to take home. Purple cane also serves some delicious local desserts.

Really imaginative (and tasty) tea-based drinks and food. Of course, you could have regular tea, but I really enjoyed the iced guava and green tea, while my wife had a delicious iced pu-er and honey. The food was also really nice. We had crispy duck, tofu with a tea-based sauce, and "boxing" chicken. The atmosphere was calm and relaxed- a... More

What a great experience here! We stumbled upon this restaurant while just walking around exploring Ipoh. We had a great meal and the service was fantastic- thank you Winnie! The tea was delightful and food was delicious- we went back the next day before leaving Ipoh. Thanks again!

Charming place in the older part of Ipoh near the night market. Great tea to drink and to buy as presents. Also tasty snacks. Friendly and helpful staff. Great setting in a historic building. Would love to go back.

It was a very unusual experience for me and I feel it is the perfect place for tea drinkers to while away the afternoon. It was formerly the Perak Chinese Amateur Dramatic Association and now houses the tea shop with the restaurant alongside. I love the interior of both the shop and the tea house, tastefully done, light and airy.... More

Ventilation needs an improvement, we were sweating after a quarter of hour. And mosquito is a serious issue, it affects our comfort a lot. Ambiance is not exactly good either - no classical oriental music is my main concern. It makes a huge difference! But other than that, creative menu and really good tea. We had a couple of different... More
