We had been to this restaurant on several occasions. We chose this chicken rice restaurant over its equally popular competitor next door. We find the boiled chicken here less oily and the service a bit better. The three chicken rice restaurants along Yau Tet Shin here had become the must-visit place for outstation visitors and tourists. The place would be packed especially during weekends and public holidays.
We ordered a whole boiled chicken (RM45). a big plate of boiled bean sprouts (RM8), a plate of braised chicken feet (RM6), a bowl of fish and meat balls (RM9) together with rice and plain koay teow soup.
The boiled chicken was delicious, smooth and not dry. But for RM45 per bird, the price is on the high side. The boiled bean sprouts were short, fat and crunchy which could only be found in Ipoh. Again, at RM8 per plate, we thought it was a bit pricey. The braised chicken feet and fish/meat ball soup were of acceptable quality but nothing very special.
We dined in the air-conditioned part of the restaurant and the service was fast. The lady boss was friendly and she had pictured herself with famous actors/actresses as well as famous personalities as seen on the photographs on the wall.
Parking is problem here and illegal parking attendants are around demanding RM2 per car. Many shops selling salt-baked chicken, curry chicken bread, pomeloes, biscuits and other local products have sprouted around these chicken rice restaurants.
If you are a visitor in Ipoh, you can consider going to these restaurants namely, Onn Kee, Ong Kee (they are related) as well as Lou Wong. However, the locals would say there are better and cheaper chicken rice available in Ipoh.

This place serves good bean sprouts and chicken. The bean sprouts are crunchy and the chicken smooth and tender, the restaurant service was fast only complaint was the chilli sauce was not the kind we liked!

Found the food good but the price a little high considering it was just noodles, chicken and beansprouts.

We had the chicken & beansprout dish with noodles & it was delicious. The staff were helpful even though they were busy and the lime drink is too die for. We went on a Tuesday, then the following 2 days it was closed & then we left Ipoh so couldn't go back for more delicious food

As one of the locals told us, this is the best in Ipoh. We had steamed chicken, bean sprouts, cha siew (grilled pork in black sauce and honey) and flat rice noodles in broth. All very delicious. The pork was sensational. Not as many people compared to other rivals, probably past the lunch hour.
Remember you are here for the food, nothing else. Do not go to the toilet, go somewhere else later!
