Most locals don't come here coz it's crowded with tourists most of the time. I went on a Wed morning at 9:30 am. Friend of mine who met me there told me she had to queue for a table, and then wait to be asked to order - about 30 min all in and considered way below average waiting time.... More

We were recommended to try the curry noodles at the Xin Quan Fang coffee shop, which we understood was previously located opposite and nearby the police station. As advised, when we arrived there was the usual wait for an empty table. Not long we seated and ordered our standard bowls of curry mee and noodles with chicken pieces and barbecued... More

My husband and I went for curry mee on a Monday, late morning. It was jam packed. We had to wait awhile, but we enjoyed sitting and watching all of the action. The curry mee was delicous and well worth the wait!

After reading the recommendations for this eatery on TripAdvisor, I gave it a try while in Ipoh. I arrived a Friday morning at about 8am, and was lucky to find a seat at a table. I waited at least 15-20 minutes to get the curry noodles (curry mee), since so many others were ahead of me. That was fine, since... More

Are you kidding? This is an institution! Affectionately know as Balai Polis Ka Lei Mai Fun, or Ma Ta Liu Ka Lei Mai Fun, Chuen Fong wins hands down as the best curry noodles in the world! It's a tourist magnet for Ipoh as well. I drive all the way from Singapore for over 6 hours just to eat it.... More

Come and get a bowl of thick curry soupy noodles with variety of toppings at Chuen Fong. The dry version is as good, but, depends on one's preference. Top this up with a nice cup of local brew coffee or tea. A good start of the day with breakfast there. One may need to park behind the shop in case... More
