Should go

going to this place for brunch wasn't on the initial plan, but there isn't regret of having a trip down. the yong tau foo is fresh, and definitely different from what we have here. services is fast and good

The ambience under the tree is quite different from elsewhere. Overall yong tau fu standard is ok. The special part of the visit are the red or green bean shakes which rock!!!

This should be a "MUST VISIT " for many Ipoh people whom now live in other cities when they back in Ipoh for holidays . Famous for "liu fun"(noodles with frying staff and yong taufu ), laksa , porridge , taugeh chicken , rojak , redbean shake and corn shake also nice here . Parking problem especially public holidays .

With so many types of food to try during the day in the town centre we can only reserve a meal at this popular food court for breakfast, and few stalls are open in the early Sunday morning but we came here for the Yong Tau Fu anyway. The Yong Tau Fu in Malaysia tends to have a lot of... More

The yong tau foo is tasty and fresh. The 'fu chuk' (bean curd with fish paste filling) is superb and crunchy. The noodle or 'hor fun' is smooth and yummy.

This is not an easy find if you are not using waze to help you navigate. All effort to find this place is worth one look at the food. 3 flavours of soups (clear, curry and asam laksa) all complemented well with the Young Tau Foo. Not forgetting the ice blended fruit and kachang drinks. They were out of the... More

My favorite yong tau foo & asam laksa, cheap & taste fabulous. Just the environment is too hot, not comfortable.

Too crowded but the waiting hour is tolerable (less than half an hour). At least they provide ample tables and seats. Do try vegetables stuffed with fish meat.

There were two eating place under the tree. If you prefer the clean environment have your meal at the new eating place. They were just side by side next to each other. Old or new both are crowded. I believed that depend on each individual on the food. Some might like the old eating place where some prefer the new.... More

Local hawker stalls style. Kopi O served was warm not hot. Their Yong Tau Foo was much below expectation from those few restaurants in Ampang, KL...what a big disappointment. Ordered plain soup and curry but the curry was not palatable. Bad experience for breakfast!
