It's not the best ambience, literally zero service. Cleanliness and hygiene levels are best left unscrutinized. But it's just simple, honest good food. Everything is fresh as the turnover is really quick.

Come early (around 10 a.m.) to avoid the lunch crowd and to ensure that you get a table. Apart from the local Yong Tau Fu, there are a few other stalls there selling chicken rice, fried banana and potato fritters, prawn noodles and more. The fruit drinks are refreshing (try the ice blended dragon fruit drink). Prices are reasonable. Order... More

Food is good and a lot of variety. Yong Tao Fu is tasty and value for money, the pork meat is another good choice. Ais kacang is good. Hygiene is so so.

By far the most amazing and most affordable Yong tau foo in Ipoh. Good soup base and variety of picks. Freshly made noodles. *Yummy* It is an experience lunching under a tree. Many locals flock to this location for meals. Most recommended. *drooling*

Tau foo prepared in this shop is very fresh. Fried daily in the shop lot. The ingredients used is good quality. The fish paste is used more compare flour and make the flavour thick. The tau foo can be served with or without noodles and also optional for soup, laksa or curry gravy. Yummy, must try

My friends and I went to look for this yong tau fu stall in Pasir Pinji, Ipoh after hearing so much about it. It was one of the several stalls clustered under a big tree, thus its unusual name. The place was hot and very crowded when we arrived. We also had a hard time looking for a place to... More

This is dining experience with a difference - sitting under a big tree amidst hawker stalls scattered over the place. Getting here is one thing - finding a place to park is another! I sometimes have to go round the place 2 times in order to get a "proper" parking spot. The tasty yongtowfoo is freshly fried and replenished often.... More
