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

We ate here a year ago and were pretty impressed with the chicken and sprouts. I'm sure the service was probably equally poor but the food made it possible to overlook. This year was different. Tough, chewy, unappetizing chicken but it was the lousy, surly service that got our attention this year. Across the way, Low Wong was packed. Ong... More

Nothing to shout about for the other dishes, i think chicken rice is still better in Singapore. The chicken here is lean and tough, however, the bean sprouts and hor fun are more tasty. i suggest you skip the evening hours 7pm to 9pm, as it's overly crowded and the wait can be verrry long, it will be a rush...

Overpriced mediocre chicken rice. Charged us 50bucks for 5 persons. Absolutely dirty environment and very unfriendly servers.
