Exceptional foods. Each cuisine are cooked with passion, freshness and an outburst of wonderful spices and aroma. Wonderful and prompt customer service, nice deco and settings. Floors, table and seats are clean. Foods are delicious and yummy! Never failed to come to this restaurant whenever I am visiting Ipoh. Dubbed as one of the best restaurant in Ipoh. Another 7...

This deserves a reappraisal having eaten here over the years upon my return to my hometown each year. This has been one of our favourite restaurants and it is easy to see why - good honest nyonya type food served quickly and politely and presented well. Their pandan chicken, kelabu mango salad, fish head curry, bean sprouts, infact every dish... More

Many of my local friends in Ipoh are regular visitors to this restaurant and judging from the numbers eating here when I have visited, it is clearly a popular destination. I've been on a few occasions and really enjoyed the Thai/Chinese/Nyonya mixed cuisine. It's difficult to decide what to eat because it's all mouthwatering. One of my favourites is the... More

I have been visiting Ipoh for years and this is definitely one of the best meals I have had there. Scrummy food and quick friendly service. Excellent

A combination of Chinese, Thai & Nyonya styled restaurant with interesting decors that change from time to time. Mostly packed during dinner and weekends, but bookings are available. As for the food, the Curry or Assam Fish Head is superb. Also there's the Pandan Chicken, Kerabu, Tofu and Assam Prawns which are the must-try items. If you fancy something different,... More

Lucky we went early as the place was booked out from 7pm onwards. Some great dishes and some average dishes. The asam fish sauce was really good, but the fish itself just ok. I liked the pandan chicken, but opinion was divided across the table. A safe choice for a decent meal.

Probably the best Chinese food I've ever had. The restaurant is extremely busy which bears testament to how good it is. We had the Pandan chicken, deep fried tofu in plum sauce, baby kai lan and rice with 2 drinks for 24.40RM. The service was also very friendly but be prepared for the chilly A/C and noisy atmosphere (most tables... More
