Nice but had tasted better

One of the famous local dish. The chicken taste good but is tougher than the ones I had in Singapore. Unique taste. Ambience wise it is the same as any local coffee shop. Go after or before peak hours so you do not have to wait too long for a sit

Famous for bean sprouts production, Buntong is the place to be to get them fresh and crunchy! Added with the famous Chicken pieces/slices and a bowl of noodles, they pack the right punch for Ipoh's infamous Tauge Chicken and Noodles alliance!

I absolutely love to enjoy ipoh's specialty bean sprout chicken. This place is run and set up by the sister of the owner of Lou Wong Bean Sprout chicken. We wanted to try and see if it was similiar or different to the taste we have been so accustomed to at Lou Wong. There were quite a number of people... More

Chicken and bean sprout is better than Lou Wong and Ong Kee not the noodles soup. Most of us who stay in Ipoh are not able to find the place unless someone take us there. They should put signboard so those from outstation can enjoy this place. Is more locals there..

Situated deep in the Buntong village. Patrons most are indians & chinese. Non Halal. They are famous for smooth coated chicken with side dish bean sprout added with specially mixed sesame oil/Light Soya Sauce & ????? sauce. Try it, if you tummy has still place to fill.

Consider one of the best sprout chicken in town. Equally with 'Lou Huang'. Price is reasonable. Crowded with locals.

Operated in a bungalow house service was quick. Different from Cowan street & Lou wong. Each have their own recipe & taste different. The chicken meat was tough I guess it uses kampung chicken but I have to say the meatball was the best so far.
