We spent RM78.40 for simple chicken rice dinner by 2 adults and 3 children...an average of RM16 per person! This is more than pricey to describe! To avoid this restaurant at all cost unless to experience how expensive chicken rice can be in Ipoh!

The Ipohians swear the Ong Kee is better. Ong Kee closed earlier than Lou Wong.... by 6pm on most day, they would have sold out on all their chicken... by that logic, you would suspect Ong Kee is better than Lou Wong.. I personally feel there is little difference between them.. and would recommend you to try both to see... More

The title pretty much sums up what you can and must order at Ong Kee (and its neighbouring rival, Lou Wong). Ong Kee is the shop diagonal to Lou Wong while Onn Kee is right next to Lou Wong. Onn Kee and Ong Kee belong to the same owner but offer different dining experiences: Ong Kee is the original shop,... More

Tried the one next door 2 months ago as this shop has sold out on chicken. Made a 2nd foodie trip to Ipoh looking out in particularly for Oon Kee Restaurant. Came earlier at around 6 pm for dinner on Sunday night. It is already full but it takes us less than 10 min to secure a seat at the... More

The guy cutting chicken doesn't wear hat and glove. Who want to eat your hair and palm sweat? Not me.

No expert in beansprout chicken rice, just wanted my kids to try this Ipoh specialty. It was tasty and nice. We could even choose the cuts of a chicken which we like. The pork ball was not bad but not particularly memorable either.

Went for the chicken rice and bean sprout. Too bad that they finished selling the fish ball soup by the time we placed our order for dinner. So we ordered the hor fun. The soup for the hor fun wad sweet and tasty.

Direct comparison with Lou Wong: the chicken is softer and the accompanying sauce is also tastier. The noodles are not as oily and the soup is not overpowering. Staff are also more polite although overall restaurant environment is not as nice (no air-con). I would still frequent this.
