Unless you are there on a weekday, I would not come back again. But the coffee shop had also other nice food lick the chee cheong... More

The restaurant was very crowded so we need to share table with the others, who were local in Ipoh. They told us that this restaurant is famous for chicken noodle, satay and egg custard. We ordered pork satay which came together with peanut sauce and a bit of cucumber. The meat was tender and good taste. We didn't have a... More

Difficult to fine a table to eat in here! Always crowded if you look from outside. And the food providers are pretty cocky too, maybe due to overwhelming business. Much crowded compared to Kong Heng restaurant next door. It would not be a bad idea to find some other restaurant that serves similarly tasty food. Yes, the food is tasty... More

In general the staff at the shop was helpful in suggesting which tables would finish soon so we knew where to wait. The drinks service was good. Order was repeated to get it right. Pork satay was good. Reordered as the kids loved it too. Ordered hor Fun and service was slow. Hor Fun and taugeh (bean sprout) was oily.... More

Was at the restaurant at around 11.30am and the place was packed and had to wait around 15 minutes for a table to free up. The kai si hor fun (flat noodles in soup with chicken) with some bean sprouts and pork satay (which was expensive at RM1 per stick) were slightly above average while the egg caramel custard was...

This restaurant is always crowded, but you need to try their caramel custard. It is worth the hype! You might not want to bring your kids along as the place is really crowded, noisy and warm. These factors may agitate your kids.

The best "Kai Sze Hor Fun" and Satay in Ipoh ( non-halal) "Kai Sze Hor Fun" normally opens at around 9.30am and if you can avoid the weekends cos this place is packed. Order the whole chicken leg as well. For Satays , i love the Chicken and pork liver satays.

Never ever missed this yummy food when you visit to Ipoh, definitely crowded during festive season, come early to try their pork satay & chee cheong fun. In fact the Ipoh hor fun also very famous but due to long waited, we gave up.
