A unique boutique tea retail shop with a dining restaurant. Nice oriental like deco augurs well with the teahouse tradition. The uniqueness of the place is that teas is the main focus in the food and drinks. It is all about tea, different kind of teas being one of the ingredients in the cooking and of course the various premium... More

Its quasi oriental design and cozy environment is worth your time once in a while. This is definitely not place for authentic Chinese tea art except demonstration from the sales assistance in the retail shop. Varieties of tea served in the restaurant is also limited instead there are wide variety of nice food but slightly over priced. Location ideally seated... More

Place design unique, cozy environment for reading and friends chit chat gathering. Food taste good too, but not much choice, because all food and beverage are related with tea. Price a bit expensive, depend what and how you order.

We had one of the best meals on this trip at Purple Cane. Every dish was well balanced and not overly salted. We savoured the Braised bean curd with green tea rice, Lei Cha noodles, Guava snack and the iced guava jasmine drink so much that we came back the next evening! Very worthwhile especially the bean curd!

Went in after savouring 3 kaya puffs from Sin Eng Heong. Ordered gingseng oolong tea and was promptly served. Nice tea to quench the thirst after eating the jaya puffs. When we had finished the tea, the waiter promptly refilled our cup. Simply very attentive. While on our way out, we stopped to admire the tea pots that were on... More

I liked this teahouse. A lot of selections and freshly brewed in your presence. Serene ambience just a couple of steps away from the dusty street. Nice bolthole to relax and chat with friends in when you've eaten too much of Ipoh food.

We ate here twice on a previous visit and again ate here twice on this visit. The food is divine, varied and interesting and the staff are very pleasant. Tea is a major feature of each dish and everything we have tried on our visits was superb. The setting is lovely too, and there is a tea shop adjoining the... More

I always love coming to eat at Purple Cane. Since many of their food is tea-infused, it feels very healthy to consume. I love their new lunch sets. They have a large variety of tea you can sample too, and all are nice. I especially love their tea puddings. I keep coming back for the green tea one.
