there are 3 or more restaurants selling the same food in one road. i am not surprised of you ended up getting confused as which one is the best to go for "nga choi kai" or chicken with beansprouts. we picked the one with air-conditioned sitting which is just next to Lou Wong's. i could not differentiate the "nga choi...

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.

Sometime since I went to Ipoh & we took the opportunity to have the famous chicken bean sprout meal. We opted for Onn Kee Restaurant instead of Lou Wong this time round. The normal order was a plate of bean sprout & a plate chicken which goes together with chicken flavored rice or flat white noodles (kuay tieu). We opted... More

Went there for dinner, very crowded. Please come early to avoid the crowd. The chicken, fish ball, meat ball and bean sprouts is very tasty and value for money.

Famous for the boiled chicken, however I find the meat less juicy, rather bit dry compared to others. But the bean sprouts dish is fabulous especially the soy sauce dressing. The ultimate dish is actually the rice noodle strips which was silky smooth and springy. It goes well with the bean sprouts and boiled chicken. The 'char Siew' or marinated... More
