Yut Loy Coffeeshop

Reviewed By Tonelim - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Ok I stopped over to catch lunch after checking the web and this place was highly recommended. Firstly, this is a old school kopitiam famed for its pau and hainanese food. So we tried chicken chop and flat noodle cantonese style. Since the place is busy, had to wait for 30 minutes for it and when the food arrived, the portion was really really small for the price. RM18 for a small piece of chicken chop was not reasonable...same for the noodle. Tried the pau and the texture was soft and the filing was not generous but for RM2 a piece, it's ok. White coffee was a disappointment too, it was too light and sweet...

Thean Chun

Reviewed By Leonard S

We had our late lunch after visiting Ho Yan Hor museum. It’s almost 4 p.m. and seems like they’re closing soon. This restaurant is a classic coffee shop, which like usual has a variety of hawkers. Famous for their ‘Kai See Hor Fun’ (Chicken Kuey Teow Soup). We had two of those, one herbal tea, and one kopi ‘o’. The broth seasoned well, I felt this is a very good food. Their hor fun has nice softness, the portion of the chicken was generous, the shrimp was big enough. Spent total RM 19 that afternoon.

Michelangelo's Pizzeria

Ipoh's first and only True Authentic AMERICAN Rock 'n' Roll Wood Fire Pizzeria. Every item here is made exactly how we would do it back in Chicago / New York. Everything is made fresh in the pizzeria, we believe in commitment and keep all our recipes exactly as they were the day we started. All pizzas are cooked at 750f degress in a real wood fire oven, hand tossed. We offer pizzas, pastas, salads and sweets. This is as close to America you can get without actually being there.We are a fmaily place where the music is played loud (retro 70's-90's rock and pop) and you can jump up on the counter and dance for a free pizza.

You can smell the pizza once you enter the shop. It's freshly made and baked by using charcoal, therefore it is totally different taste from Domino or Pizza Hut. You will need to queue at outside if it is full house at that moment. It...MoreDear Wei Thank you for your kind words and review. We use wood for our wood fired oven.

Pakeeza Restaurant

Reviewed By Bryan H - Portland, Oregon

Tastefully decorated, this busy restaurant offers decent pricing on veggie food. The service was excellent and the people who work there (including the owner, I think) were super friendly. I felt at home for the first time since I've entered the country as a tourist/traveler. Food was good. Nice complementary fish curry soup that my friend enjoyed so much! It was well worth the walk in the dark to find this place.

Burps & Giggles

Reviewed By Danielle R - Southport, United Kingdom

Visited after Reading the reviews and wasn't disappointed. Cute cafe, ideally located in Ipoh. Really enjoyed the decor, lots of niknaks on the wall.
Food and drink were good, tried the mango chicken salad and enjoyed it. They had a cereal bar that I wanted to try, but unfortunately was closed on the Monday. Nice place to chill, has aircon (in one half) and wifi, so you can sit back and relax after walking round Ipoh. Staff were really nice and friendly.

Tandoor Grill

'Classic With A Modern Twist' . An Exclusive Fine Dining Restaurant which specializes in Authentic Northern Indian Cuisine.

Reviewed By Tim S - Bristol, United Kingdom

It’s a while since the last visit, but this restaurant lived up to my old expectations very well. Unless the whole building is taken over by a function, which is rare, there is normally a table for walk-ups. The service is friendly and helpful and the menu extensive and full of classic Northern Indian dishes. The pappodums are good for accompanying the Hoegarden beer served in pewter tankards. We chose Malabar Prawns, Chicken Tikka, plenty of Tadkar Dahl and Bindhi Baji, with plain white rice: plenty to satisfy the appetites of three people. Delicious flavours, expertly cooked and nicely presented. The decor and spaciousness create an air of luxury and even the toilets are grand (and though indoors, outside the air conditioned space.) Safe to say you are unlikely to be disappointed here!

Ming Court Hong Kong Tim Sum

Reviewed By cce2018 - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

This restaurant located opposite foh San, still using traditional style to deliver dim sum. Recommended porridge and 'ha gun', which is the prawn mixed with pork mince wrapped with beancurd skin and deep fried. Average rm12-20 per person. To avoid the crowed, go there on weekday or go there early morning let's say 6.30am on weekend. When you go to a dim sum restaurant, ask for their ketchup, because it is very different to the commercial ketchup.

Restoran Samy

Reviewed By kenkeh - kuala lumpur

We waze our way here from Kuala Lumpur . It's a stop for lunch before heading to our Kedah trip . This restaurant was recommend by my friend and it was my first time here . Please do not park your car along the road outside the restaurant as you will get fine and there's some parking towards the end of the shop near the market . As we are the first few to arrive , the food was not ready yet at 11am , service was slow . And when it's time to pay the bill you also need to line up at the cashier and it takes some time too . The food was average and it's not cheap . I paid about rm200 for 6 persons which include mutton, chicken , fish ,crab and vegetables banana leaf rice .
