It's the second time we came as expected they had improved their service and train the waitresses after 3 years. Unfortunately, seems no improvements at all, the staff served very slow and bad attitude. We had order at the counter, 20 minutes later they came...and said the dishes we order finished already. Don't come here while you are hungry, expected foods will be served on ur table 20-30 mins after your order. I don't recommend to KL people to drive all the way here to try Padang foods, they are many Padang restaurants which is way better in KL. I think I'd give up with this restaurants already, no chance to come here anymore. We even can't finished our foods, loose appetite with their bad attitude and slow services.More

After the whole afternoon of driving up from KL and traipsing around various locations in Ipoh, we stopped by at this restaurant for dinner from a recommendation by a local. All 6 of us were ravenously hungry. The place offered Indonesian-Malaysia delicacies. Unfortunately, some favorites...were not available, such as otak sapi - cow's brains, as they ran out earlier. Positive sign so far. We ordered rendang, curry fish head, fried chicken, soup ekor and the ever present samba hijau. It wasn't the full blown nasi padang offerings as we know it. We skipped ikan bakar and other assorted fried food available. Sirsak juice was requested. When it arrived, we were disappointed, it was the canned version. Maybe the fruits were not easily available in Ipoh or demand is insufficient to stock fresh soursop fruits. There were a number of other diners with their families enjoying their meal as well. So all is not lost for the restaurant. Not sure what the full offering freshly prepared for lunch would be. Maybe if we were to swing by Ipoh next time, we would give it a shot and see what we may have missed.More

We had our lunch here for the first time which was recommended by my friend in Ipoh. We tried a few dishes...ayam goreng...daging dendeng and few of the nasi padang menu's. It was so delicious dan their services also good. The place was so cozy...and ample parking space. The only thing they have to improve is the rest room cleanliness and the facilities in it.More

Me and hubby were in Ipoh to service our bike at the bmw service centre. Hubby didn't want to eat the nasi ganja or nasi vanggey like the norm or synonym with Ipoh. We decided to try this nasi padang restaurant. They offer varieties of...dish. We tried their beef rendang ,paru goreng,ikan masin(salted fish) ,masak lemak pucuk ubi,sotong sambal and of course sambal hijau. Overall was delicious and I loved the beef rendang. I would recommend this place if you are not really into curry or the usual packed place while in Ipoh.More

A popular restaurant in Ipoh town. Well known for Nasi Padang delicacies and a favourite for those looking for a satisfying lunch. You will be spoilt for choices as there were rows and rows of Padang dishes like 'rendang' and 'sambal'... however, service was a...bit slow and the prices were quite expensive. Nevertheless, it has a nice ambience and most of the dishes have the authentic taste which could compensate the high pricing. It is worth trying.More

My office was just opposite of this restaurant. We sometimes entertain clients at this restaurant. They really have a wide variety of dishes all day long. Mostly the food are quite good and tasty, but the waiter service can be improved a lot. Prices are...a little bit expensive than average, so I don't come here often.More

I believe so. There are ample seats to accommodate tour groups. However I would recommend that your Tour Leader to check directly with the management of the restaurant in advance for a definitive reply.
