“Breakfast In Fo Shan Dim Sum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Nice food, good environment. Mostly self service. I was manage to get a table (good spot) which can enjoy the street view.

Very crowd (seriously) during weekend morning.

“good food (Foh san behind excelsior hotel)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

we reach ipoh, early sunday. My mind must go & try the famous dim sum in ipoh. Frankly,
It's got alot restaurant selling dim sum . Dont miss this "Foh San Restaurant Dim Sum".. we're stayed at Tune Hotel. Is just a walking distance..10min .

1) Self service - We find our table ourself..understood, is sunday morning. Sure got alot people. Nothought the waitress so busy.. they quickly help us for the table cloth n arrange plate & chopstick & chilli sauce. N ordering the chinese tea for us.

2) Dim Sum - Must collect by ownself (self service). Is a good concept. If everybody wait for the trolley of dim sum.. imagine how many trolley will be on the road. Food is good..delicious. Nice environment too. Food still hot..

Keep it up... Service.. good..Price also reasonable. FOr 2 of us, we only eat RM 51.60. Really cheap..worth it.

This whole december'12, they still open on Tuesday. Normally they close on every tuesday. Their business hour 6.30am - 2.30pm.

The owner's must be proud with the workers..not easy. The workers have to face too many customer in a day. :)

“Awesome food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Simply must go when in Ipoh, the place is huge and the food quality is absolutely consistent. Way better than a ton of Dim Sum places in KL.

“Cold Tim Sum and overrated!! Lousy service!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

The tim sum were cold and the whole place were crowded with tourists!! Too commercialized and have to wait and queue for a long time to get a table or enough chairs for your family!
