This place serves many Ipoh favotites like satay, chee cheong fun, yong liew. But the best is their chicken and prawn hor fun. We like the way it is prepared here. Coffee is good too.... very crowded all the time.

Rarely any local people will come to this coffee shop anymore, the quality of the food isn't there anymore and the price keep increasing. Not a place I would recommend if you really long for authentic Ipoh food.

This used to be a great place to eat. Can't say the same now. The egg custard is no more the same great taste. The chicken noodle stall, with much the same taste as before, is still there. Avoid weekday lunch hour. It's very crowded.

Without fail, this place is busy and crowded, but it's worth the wait to get a table, either inside the shop, or outside on the alley, to soak in the atmosphere. Variety of food options available. Rice rolls with choice of sauces or toppings, spring...More

From 8am to 3.15 pm. (the best time to patron the restaurant) After 3.15pm, the broth could be diluted sometimes due to overwhelming customers. (the broth is what it matters.)
