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.

Dai Shu Geok (Big Tree Foot)

Reviewed By ivanoew - Hong Kong, China

My two cents worth...If you are a tong tau foo fan like me then you will of course want to make a trip here, there's quite a variety to choose from between the fried and not-fried sections. The portions are XXX large...so best to share if you wanna sample everything. What I particularly like is that they serve the fried separately from the soup stuff. I had mine with clear soup...It was rich, savoury and hearty. I tried my friend's curry version and found it good too. Did I mention that its really affordable too.

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.

I came here because I was expecting discounted guinness during happy hour.
But they only discount the tasteless, generic beers, like Tiger. Very disappointing. I read a lot of conflicting reviews on TripAdvisor and all of them proved to be inaccurate.
Prices are hefty; A pint of Guinness will set you back 28 ringgit plus 10 percent service & tax 6 percent whacked on top of the advertised price. So you end up paying about 32.50 for a pint. Think tourist - Lemon squeezing.
Even forMalaysia that’s at the upper end of the spectrum. Pity because it’s a very well designed building, with an open front, so you’re not hemmed in. Band is okay too; western music sung in English. If you’re a non-smoker like me you may find the passive smoking experience annoying. With so many countries (even Thailand) banning smoking indoors, I can’t understand why Malaysia doesn’t follow suit. We can only hope.

Garvy's French Dining

Reviewed By jchong - Malaysia

Garvy's positions itself as a semi-fine dining restaurant. It's not a casual bistro atmosphere, nor is it a formal white-linen kind of place.
I've been there at their usual times and also during the time when they had visiting chefs from overseas Michelin-starred restaurants. It was an opportunity to try "Michelin-star" food and some molecular gastronomy. Kudos to them for pricing the menu at a relatively reasonable price (RM188++ for 5 courses). It was a mixed experience as the one or two molecular gastronomy items were perhaps a little too avant-garde for us. The rest of the menu, featuring more conventionally prepared dishes, was quite good.
