We went as a party of 12 to Restaran Ong Kee (Tauge Ayam), on the corner, and had an excellent meal seated at tables by the roadside. The service was fast and friendly and we had a selection of dishes, including Bean Sprout Chicken and Chicken Rice, all of which were very tasty with tender juicy chicken. Great meal.

These is one of the most recommended famous bean sprout chicken rice store by the Ipohian. There are 2 brunches on the same street and we chose the one at the corner. The chicken was flavorful and meat was bouncy. Bean sprout was juicy and fresh. The hor-fan soup was okay. Service was typical coffee shop standard but fast. Not... More

Had dinner with some Ipoh friends here. Apparently most locals will dine here rather than the one next door. The Chicken was tender and juicy and the Bean Sprouts were crunchy and fresh. We had the Hor Fun in clear soup which is fantastic. Overall, the ambiance is old school Chinese restaurant. Utensils are nothing fancy, basic but clean. Will... More

Not a fan of chicken rice, so most tasted average for me. The version here, chicken is soft and tender, bean sprout is not the usual fat fat version but still crunchy. hor fun is nice, not sure about the rice but my mum said my hometown one taste better. Overall, it is fine except very salty to us. I... More

Had much lunch here. I was served about a quarter steam chicken with rice noodles and tauge..... a set of these three item cost me only RM 9.00 only. The portion was really generous and taste was good. The surrounding was a bit dirty and crowded during weekends.

There isn't any other way to say it, this place and Lou Wong are both rip offs for tourists. The food is terrible, the price is terrible and during holidays the wait is terrible. I'm sorry tourists, but I can't suggest you go to other places, because we locals need to keep the good stuff to ourselves. I only came... More

Service is very poor. Need to complain hard before getting fast service. Bean sprouts is excellent, crunchy and tasty with the soy sauce. Chicken is average. Overall, it's overpriced!

Situated diagonally across from the famous chicken rice shop Lou Wong, Ong Kee in comparison maintains much of the olden days atmosphere. We ordered chicken, bean sprouts, gizzards and liver for 4 pax. It costs us RM47 inclusive of rice/koay teow and drinks. Not being a bean sprout lover, I dreaded to try it. I was surprised when I tasted... More
