They serve the usual Malaysian fare eg Assam laksa, curry laksa, nasi lemak and the popular scones. The waiters are local indigenous boys or orang asli. Give your support. 3.5 stars.

Found Uncle Chow's Kopitiam away from the busy streets from town. Uncle Chow was friendly to chat with customers when he finished serving. We had nasi lemak & kuey teow soup, both dishes are great. The kuey teow soup is so comforting & delicious. Aunty Chow is the person doing all her cooking. Great food & nicely decorated with plants... More

Have a long wait becoz there was a large group ahead of us. This kopitiam does not hv plenty of workers, can't handle large crowd. Food is average but overpriced. Owners are retiree and quite friendly.

We had the prawn mee and fried kuey teow which wasn't good at all. The prawn mee had a sourish taste which could either be a reflection of its freshness (or lack of it) or the soup was accidentally mixed with the soup from the asam laksa.

Was here for breakfast. Uncle Chow himself and wife is super friendly and their willingness to share their retirement phases with you. The assam laksa was pretty good and so were the lemak. Transport is needed to reach the place.

Home cooked by Mrs Chow herself, nasi lemak was ok. The pulut was very thick, not too sweet. It's difficult to find without transport as its off town centre.

Uncle and Aunty Chow were friendly and they serve good Curry Laksa which we enjoyed very much. Too bad they do not have any kueh's left when we visit.

We had mee curry and prawn mee. Average food with limited ingredients. Bubur cha cha and pulut hitam is good but very sweet. Service is good. Location is off the city centre. Need to drive.

Utterly disappointed with the food, service and the price. Talk about this eating place with other travellers and the locals, all agreed this place doesn't worth the visit
