First, this place is called Onn Kee and not Ong Kee. IT IS Very very very dirty. Surroundings dirty and the workers handled the cut chickens without gloves, then wiped his hands on his dirty aprons n bare handedly touched the cut chickens and used his hand to strain the hot soup Toilet also very dirty and smelly.

It seems there is some truth of what others wrote here. Price has gone up a lot but not the quality of food. Utensils used were not too clean. They were more interested to 'capture' customers and get them seated fast, so that they don't walk over to the opposite rival. I am not going back there anymore !

After hearing great things about Ipoh Bean Sprout Chicken, we decided to visit Onn Kee as per one of our local friend's advice. Chicken was meh, hor fun was meh. Soup was alright. Bean sprouts are wonderful, but aren't enough to redeem the dish. I think I was disappointed as I was expecting far too much.

It due especially to the Hor Fun (Koey Teow – flat rice noodles) which is so smooth that makes the big difference; and of course the perfectly poached chicken which is firm + juicy and the fat bean sprouts is another bonus that makes this place stands out; compared to the other restaurants in the area. Simple food... Fast service…... More

The Onn Kee Restaurant is a famous restaurant at Jalan Yau Tet Shin in Ipoh. It is located behind the main Jalan Sultan Iskandar. The bench mark to look for is the Police Station in the new part of Ipoh. In fact the whole street is famous as a foodie street in Ipoh. The main famous dish here is the... More

It's little tricky to review simple traditional dishes. The main ingredients used for the chicken and bean sprout are merely soy sauce, sesame oil, white pepper, spring onions, coriander and red chilly. Thus one should not expect a totally out of this world experience out of these simple ingredients. Having said that I would still rate Ong Kee and Lou... More

Fastest to sold out in Ipoh. Worth the wait. Got to go ther before 6pm to avoid crowd and tourist or sold out. Must eat Bean sprout, steam chicken order 1/2 or more because you sure can finish it and 5 pork meat balls.
