Reviewed June 3, 2014

I was born and raised in Taiping, but i was born in 93 so i never got to experience their hawker stalls. But what i can say is that Doli was by far the best kueh teow i ever had in Taiping along with Abu Samah. It still retained it's flavor eventhough they moved from a humble sall to a humble restaurant. But as their popularity rises, and more customers came in, i noticed that the restaurant was not what it used to be, the taste of the food is somewhat less attractive. But it's not only Doli that suffers the same fate, even resturants such as Abu Samah falls in quality once they have more and more customers. We have to understand that as the number of people increases the food quality will decrease as well. We cant fully blame Doli for their lack of quality, things like this happens to businesses once hey have reached a certain point. But the owners too must acknowledge that their food quality is deteriorating and must find a solution to fix this. I hope all you outsiders will understand why the food was not as great as it once was. Perhaps one day, Doli will improve it's quality and live up to it's name.

It's been a long time since i visited the restaurant last year. I have to wait for a long time for them to take the order. Maybe around 20 minute. The table also they didn't even get to clean when there are many customer. They should increase their worker. Despite waiting for ages, the taste of char koey tiaw also as not satisfying as usual. So, keep your Good work.

Ordered their most expensive Fried Koay Teow Special and was duly disappointed. Special meant extra koay teow and prawns but was completely tasteless. Sad to know that the place was in existence for many years but their Koay Teow was completely overrated. Maybe my expectation was a bit tad too high.

Too much awesome review about this 30year old restaurant. Worth the try. Each plate of your kueh teow is fried by the owner and never once it is done by her workers. The noodle is super generous with uncountable cockles and approximately 20baby prawns. Paying RM10 is surely worth the deal, the taste is average however accompanied with their home chopped chili; that is a power!

We had just now (9/2/2014 1630) 2 plate of kuey teow goreng special which cost us myr10 per plate.the food had no taste,it just a plain kueu teow with a black color which we presume soy sauce.the only thing we notice was special is this abundance mix of egg,prawn and cockle. We ate and then stop halfway. We are not coming back.
