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.

dislike: lots of people waiting for the dishes...beggars around...cars moving through the road (with the tables arranged by the side of the road). Like: steamed chicken nice but can be steamed slightly longer time so that we can have a good bit of the chicken.

I do enjoy the soup very much. Savory and tasty, unlike it's neighbor's soup which carries a very sweet note. As for the chicken, it's just average but the pork balls are quite enjoyable for my little ones. The Kuey Teow (or Hor Fun) is tender as how it should be, as in expected Ipoh standard. Service is not exactly... More

We went to have our dinner at Onn Kee Chicken Rice because this was listed as top 10 must try places to eat in Ipoh by the Chinese version of therakyatpost.com. Although the taugeh or bean sprouts are crunchy, the chicken rice with bones is a little disappointing. We think the chicken rice by Wee Nam Kee in Singapore tasted... More

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
