Excellent Chinese food in Ipoh

I went here recently for a business lunch with local staff. This was the recommended place for Chinese food even though it was a bit of a drive from the office. It has the added benefit of being near Perak Cave Temple, which we visited on the way back. The food was excellent. We ordered many... read more

Used to go there often. Came back tonight and was shocked. Prices are high, service is average and one has to eat from plastic plates. Not what you expect though standard in Malaysia it seems! Portions are small compared to before. Not worth going there again!

A forgettable experience where the food was concerned. A couple of the dishes that were ordered was way too salty, one of which was a chicken dish. None of the dishes we ate were amazing or that I would recommend. Very standard fare. On the expensive side and the portions are not big. Service was rather slow, even the bill... More

Usually I will remember the good ones and the bad ones too (especially the bad ones) because the bad ones at least have some character and madness to their cooking. This place is just.....forgettable. And this is one of the worst traits of a restaurant, blandness, lack of character, lack of excitement. I can't even recall what we ordered and... More

I have been here several times, I must say they have been keeping up their consistency in their food in terms of taste and speed. I had brought families and friend and so far all good comments. Food are fast, delivery are prompt and price are affordable. The only thing maybe to improve on the AC temperature especially when you... More

Had lunch with friends. Service was fast. Taste of food was good but portion a bit small. Clean, cosy ambient with nice décor. Even the toilet was cosy. Maybe, that was why price was a bit on the high side.

We have eaten our evening dinner here whenever we have had friends in town as you can rely on the food and service. However it can get very busy and it may be best to make a reservation. Our last visit was just last week and it was as good as ever. We shall certainly be back.

Had our reunion lunch in the restaurant for the past few years. No complains there. Awesome experience for our families there. Even the elders and the kids enjoyed themselves. Pro: - Yummilicious food - Nice ambience - Restaurant captain was obliging and friendly - Easy parking - Within walking distance to shopping malls like AEON Kinta and Tesco to walk... More
