Pleasant but slightly overrated

Ong Kee is an old establishment for its bean sprouts poached chicken. Living up to its name, (1) Poached chicken - cooked well done, the texture was moist yet firm, the light soy sauce and sesame sauce blend was a good touch. (2) Bean sprouts - big fat bean sprouts uniquely in Ipoh, nice touch with... read more

I went with 3 friends on the last weekend of March 2015 for lunch. Since we had a heavy breakfast and so badly we wanna try the tauge, we decided to order a plate of tauge with noodle soup. The waitor arrogantly rejected our order simply because we were ordering too 'little'. A shop that I will never go back... More

The meat balls and the chicken has outshone Lou Wong. They have similar menus but Ong Kee has captured my taste bud wanting for more meat balls! Both restaurants have outstanding local ipoh hor fun. Ong kee did not do much marketing but the locals are the ones who know where the good food are hidden. Don't miss it :)

I loved the chicken and speed of service. The taugeh was fresh,thick and crunchy. The only disappointing this was the rice could use some flavour. Rice was just bland. They didnt have the original chilli sauce which is usually served with chicken rice. But still liked the chicken.

The chicken is average quality which you can get just about anywhere. Tauge is fat and juicy but the cooking is average too. We ordered a small portion of tauge for 2 adults and 2 kids. They sent medium size and change it accordingly after we enquired about it. Then the achicken came and again it's way too much!! We... More

Went there with my wife and was disapointed with the level of interest the waiter had to serve us. Extremely unfriendly and didn't seem to want explain to us what they had to offer. We eventually ordered a set of boneless chicken with two plates of rice and some taugeh. There is seriously nothing great about the steam chicken, the... More

You can get chicken rice any where but this place has been our favorite when my boys bring me to Ipoh. What I like about this place is their fine smooth koay teow (flat rice noodles), the clear soup,the meatballs and the chicken which has a good texture.... tender and juicy! One can choose to have the koay teow in... More

The chicken rice here is good and tasty. Chicken is tender and it comes with beans sprouts. I have no complaints on the food or service. You can choose from either rice or noodles to go with the chicken.

The chicken was greasy, rice was ordinary (not fragrant) and the beansprouts undercooked. Yucks! If you want to eat nice chicken rice, come and try Singapore's hainanese chicken rice instead. Don't bother wasting time at Ong Kee.

We ordered the chicken, beansprouts, meatball soup and noodles for dinner. The chicken was tender and different - it was not seasoned/fragrant like the hainanese chicken rice in Singapore. The beansprouts were tasty, portion was generous. We found the meatball soup and noodles too salty and greasy for our taste.
