“Overrated and Overcommercialized”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Despite the rave about this place, everything is overrated - especially the price (RM7.50 for a plate of chicken rice in a coffee shop??)

Overall opinion : Meh

“Their brand only famous but not delicious”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

I am staying in Ipoh for 35 years and as long as I know they are not delicious enough. I prefer to go to the other one which around Ipoh Pari Tower inside a food court. Their name is Fiftteen Tower bean sprout, Chicken and Kueyteow Soup. Their chicken feet also fantastic. Locally very famous in Ipoh. Do not believe me? Go and try it yourself.

Do not go to Lou Wong because because they are just famous in their name but the taste is still not up to standard yet.

“Over rated”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Tried this as many people (that we know personally or don't) claim it's D best bean sprout chicken in Ipoh.

My experience? Not that great.

Soy sauce that the chicken was sitting in was the most tasty thing in our whole meal. THAT was really really tasty.

Chicken was over cooked, hence meat was tough thou we ordered drumstick.

Bean sprout was bitter. Not the fat juicy sweet-tasting bean sprout I was expecting.

Rice was a little hard - as in not-good-quality-rice kind of hard.

As many other reviewers mentioned, shop can improve on hygiene and cleanliness.

Not cheap too, 2 drumstick rice plus a plate of bean sprouts already RM20 (drinks exclusive).

Not a shop I'm interested to eat in again.

“Hopefully, to being more tidy and clean.”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Tauge and Chicken are both very nice, but rice is not always good.
Sometimes it smells wired and too soft.
Place and table are not tidy and sometimes very dirty.
