Went there for lunch and found out that, during lunch, they only served meal in set... those ala carte order are only available for dinner. That left me a bit unhappy... Anyhow, we ordered quite a number of set; few type of chicken flavor, curry, bak kut teh, beef, plain bun etc. I would not able to distinguish any of... More

The food was average. For the price we paid, we could have gotten better quality food in Ipoh. The tea was worth it though. The ambience was nice except that I was bitten by many mosquitoes thus making the experience bad.

the service was average as they forgot our drinks for a bit but the special tea dishes, from the lei cha served in a tea pot to the tea fried noodles and rice dishes are a special treat at reasonable prices.

Good ambient and atmosphere for a quiet gathering with family and love one. Price is a bit on the high end but taste is good and unique in this quiet corner. Beware of pasar malam on saturday, parking maybe limited..

The shop looks like a souvenir shop from outside. However, it serves some extra-ordinary good food in town, and not similar to other local Malaysian Chinese cuisin. Frankly speaking, it looks like Taiwanese. My wife and I were particularly like the Tofu (bean curb), and were told that it was home made from the original soya bean juices from Funny... More

Don't be fooled by the dull exterior of this tea house. Once you walked in, the interior design was awesome. Very breezy, cooling, and cozy with a couple of trees planted on the ground. Antics tables and chairs are being used. The food was made basically, tea and it taste just perfect. The dish portion was mediocre and suitable for... More

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.
