You must try the oil chicken here and the hor fun here, they are both delicious. You can order the dish amount in person number, like chicken for one, for two, and so on.

Never been Ipoh for 10 yrs, craving for Ipoh food for present trip, can't resist to have my favourite famou Ipoh bean-sprouts chicken & Hou Fun. The chicken still soft & smooth with sesame oil, like what I have it 10 yrs ago. Many of my Ipoh friends (local) always recommend Onn Kee Restaurant, but not others, they know better... More

Before coming I had heard a lot about this place so I went to have dinner at this place with some friends. The bean sprout is fresh, well cooked (i think seasons with sesame oil) and the steamed chicken is delicious. As per title, it really lived up to its fame. No regrets. Worth every penny.

Why are people still going to this place? We were recommended to come here. Never have we encountered such horrible service for normal chicken rice! People's tastebuds are problematic if they say this place is a must-visit or it's good because we can easily find chicken rice/tauge places that are A LOT better than this in Selangor and KL. This...

The food is way overpriced. We went to the branch that is not air-conditioned, the waiter seem tired and annoyed even before he first started to take our orders. Food tasted good to me. The cleanliness of the restaurant was less satisfactory.

I did not order the ubiquitous ngar choy (bean sprouts). A plate of chicken and a rice cost RM 9 which was cheap. The chicken was smooth and tender and served in a light sauce. I put some of the sauce in the rice which enhanced the flavour of the already fragrant and flavourful rice. Highly recommended. A worthy opponent... More

The price per person is RM17 with a sour sop drink. As two of us were out eating, we order one set only to try. What they gave us was a plate of wing part, the chicken was hard probably from an old hen. Not worth the visit. You can get drumstick at RM5 at any coffee shop in Ipoh... More

We went to this restaurant today and the service provided was horrible! We ordered a whole chicken but it was definitely not a whole one. We were only given some meaty parts and everything else were bones. Also, the colour of the chicken wasn't looking good. Definitely not the ones that they hung at the front of their store. We...

We had steamed chicken, char siew (roasted pork), steamed bean sprout, rice and noodles. Chicken and bean sprout was average, but the roasted pork was good. Was quite pricey though.

Highly recommended if you love overpriced and very average tasting hawker food. Half a chicken, 10 meatballs, a plate of bean sprouts and 3 rice & drinks for ~RM60!! Food quality certainly not as good as widely claimed, definitely overrated. You could easily get this sort of quality in many places, might be better to just support your local coffee... More
