This is a family business that I'm so happy to support with my regular visits! The owners and staff are always so friendly and the food is always delicious! My choice of favourite dish would be the Hainanese chicken, a healthy choice and full of flavour.. When my parents are up from NSW, this is one place that we never... More

We have been going to Ipoh for over ten years. The restaurant has been refurbished since our last visit, but the food is still the same excellent quality and flavour. We shared char Kwai Teow, green chicken curry, mapo tofu and rice cooked in chicken stock and ginger. All dishes were delicious. Can't wait to return.

Have been coming here for years. My mother is malaysian so I have been raised on malaysian/chinese food. The food here is excellent. Their Hiananese chicken rice is definitely the best of the Gold Coast along with their Seafood Hor Fun. Prices are good. Family run business with good service. They also have a take-away option. Highly recommend this restaurant.

I have been coming here for many years and after a 13 year absence from living on the Gold Coast I just had dinner here and as usual it was great food. Service has always been a bit slow but it's worth the wait. Definitely worth going to.

Been there twice now and both times delicious meals. Excellent value. A large variety of food. Service excellent. Lovely friendly staff. The stuffed aubergine and chicken with noodle dish excellent. We have a variety of mains to share which works very well. BYO always good idea. Good for large groups too. Can be a bit noisy. Tables outside too.

Thank Shelley G
