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

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

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
