Actually, they give you a choice. If you don't like sugar in your coffee ask for the nan yang "C" and it will come with cream or "O" and it will come black. The default would be the traditional "white coffee" with both cream and sugar. No matter which you prefer the coffee itself would rate a five hands down... More

Absolutely loved the coffee for its silky texture. However the food was very disappointing. The Ipoh hor fun was passable, not the curry noodles. I'm not sure what coconut milk is in the gravy but it didn't taste like fresh ones. Surely, this can be used in a country which just about came up with this dish!

Please let me tell you about this horrible place. We are regulars here and get treated like trash. We personally know the owner but we think she takes care of herself more than her business! Cons: 1. Terrible service!! It's utter chaos! 2. They lack tables and chairs outdoors 3. When you do get a chair and table, they don't... More

There is no such thing as customers here, just some grumpy lazy staff who ignores you and confuses the orders while they blame it on you. Th food tasted pretty weird, I have had noodle and rice dishes here and the ingredients are a total mystery. Avoid and don't give it a second thought.

I ordered a white coffee and french toast set, the coffee was unbearably sweet and the "french toast" looked as though it had been deep fried yesterday and microwaved this morning. It had a mystery filling too, that looked like peanut butter or kaya but tasted like neither. Add that to the intense smell of citronella floor cleaner being mopped... More

The service absolutely doesnt care about the customers and they confused our orders, so that we got something different than what we ordered. Took long time till we got the right dish. Ordering system totally sucks. Food is not worth the money and the wait as you get better food with better service nearby.

My two recent visits (May 10 and May 19) to the same Old Town Coffee at KLIA had coffee served in unhygienic cups. The first cup had a crack line from top to bottom and the coffee leaked out to the saucer. The second cup was so chipped that the stains were so obvious and yet was still used to... More

A restaurant offers quite a variety of Malaysia food. I ordered a bowl of Ipoh Chicken Hor Fun and a glass of ice coffee. The price was reasonable and the taste was average.

If you are looking for an introduction to everyday Malaysian fare in one place, Old Town White Coffee (any branches in Malaysia) is the place to start. I often order Nasi Lemak with Chicken Rendang, toasted kaya and butter bread with soft boiled eggs. The menu over the years has grown and this restaurant even offers set menus and a... More
