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

In the past, the service has been at least decent but it has gone from average to terrible! During my last visit which was just last week, we were first greeted with a disclaimer that we should choose to go if we could not wait due to the crowd. As far as my eye could see, there were only hardly... More

order four season dessert and there is quite a variety of drink and healthy food provided! The atmosphere is very nice and is a good place to either have a meal or just hanging out with friend for a high tea session. Their handmade noodle is very tasty and you can totally feel the sincerity of the chef in preparing... More
