The taste was so authentic. Need to add more plates for rice. Also don't forget to try biryani rice anarkali as it... More

I went here because there were not much food options around Ipoh town at night, but I wasn't disappointed. I got their Ayam Goreng with Nasi Biryani and the guy put some different sauces from the array of dishes on my rice. That was amazing! It may sound messy, but it's good actually. It's a bit heavy for dinner, but... More

I ordered the murtabak ayam and it came with 5 mins on a metal tray with two types of curries and picked onions. It tasted good. I... More

This is a very basic restaurant where mostly locals eat. It's almost like a covered street food venue. Order at the kitchen counter and be prepared for little to no English. Find a spot, German style community tables, they will bring your food (no number) pay at counter when finished. Curry was thick n rich, I had seconds of both... More

Came in real late (8.30pm) so most dishes are finished. Bit there was a teeny bit if mutton curry left so I had that with steamed rice. The Mutton is really tender and the curry is good. I called before I came in and was informed that the restaurant is open from 630am to 930pm. There is a signage that... More

I have been here upon recommendation by a local Ipoh guy. I find this is the best Fish Head Curry, cheap and delicious. Service is excellent and price is very reasonable. Addictive and would highly recommend you to try this.
