The sincerity and good food offered is something we never want to miss. Especially Uncle Chow is friendly and he will share with you more on life experience (of course when he is free lah)

You can get delicious, nice food here with cool highland weather. Nasi lemak, curry laksa, you name it, they have it. The sensation when eating the food with cool wind strolling by is wonderful. Maybe that is why Uncle Chow & wife want to settle here.

Saw lots of signs so decided to check it out, out of the main town underneath a block of apartments! Small menu but can see it all being cooked behind the counter! Orders the chicken fried rice for only 7ringgit and had a full plate, so much food and so tasty! Would definitely recommend!

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. The fried kuey teow was better but nothing to shout about. We had... More

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.
