Called in for lunch during our stay in the Highlands. Food was freshly cooked and tasted good (definitely recommend the chicken fried rice!) service was friendly, and they had wifi and coffee without sugar; 2 things that were hard to find in other local eateries!

Love this place when it started biz many years ago.. It was than not so crowded and we are able to enjoy our food peacefully. So it's super crowded and stress to dine here.. Uncle Chow unable to cope with the crowd. I think he needs to employ more staff..

My family and I were greeted by the owner, Mrs Chow. She was friendly and she explained that this restaurant is part of her retirement plan. That is why, she only... More

A hard to find place, but the place serves nice coffee and are kids friendly. We had nasi lemak with chicken rendang that needed more salt, and also scone which was a little hard.

Uncle Chow is very friendly and he serves and chats up with his customers. The kopitiam was away from the main Tanah Rata street and very quiet. He has his famous dishes which fits very well for the locals as well as continental breakfast. It was lovely that our host Mr Chau from Golden Hills recommended him, it made our... More

Uncle Chow Kopitiam is located in Taman Royal Lil, Tanah Rata, which is away from the busy town center. The restaurant serves some great Peranakan cuisines too... Among the many recommended menu were the Nasi Lemak and the Nyonya Laksa (Lemak Curry). The coffee was just as comparable to Starbucks in terms of quality coffee beans. A must try place... More
