Cheap and lots of variety

Posted on 07 / 15 / 2015

This one was quite difficult to find, the gps kept sending us the wrong way until we had all but given up, only to find the place by accident after getting stuck in a traffic jam.. the ladies were nice and helpful and the food tasted nice even though the mock meats we tried and most of the sweeter, non-spicy food had an overpowering cinnamon taste.. but there is a lot of variety and it's quite cheap so it's well worth giving a try if you happen to be passing by.
Side note: if you can, try to avoid parking at the garage down the street during peak hours as the smell from the fishmarket above is as bad as it gets.

Pros: lots of options, cheap, helpful ladies
Cons: difficult to find, bad traffic during lunch hours,

Lots of options

Posted on 12 / 11 / 2013

This place has more options than most 'economy rice' places have. Food tasted nice and some of it was kept hot!

The details given in the previous review helped us out - thank you! The name has changed and location on the map is wrong as the person pointed out.

Staff are pretty miserable - they bark the price at you and that's about it!

Pros: Very good selection, Cheap
Cons: Miserable staff

Name probably changed

It took me a while to find it as the map points to a wrong direction. I have marked the right location in the picture I added. It is not in a coffee shop anymore, but the whole place is a restaurant now. As on my picture with the entrance, the name seems to have changed. They serve buffet style and quote a price when they see what you have chosen. I paid 5 RM for a fully loaded plate. Drinks extra of course.

Open from 7am to 5pm.

Pros: Very tasty, great variety, best value for money
Cons: If you don't mind a basic setup, none

Great local atmosphere

This is not a restaurant but is a stall located in a coffee shop in the 'white coffee' area of Ipoh. You choose the accompaniments you want with your rice and all will be served on a plate, much like taking food from a buffet table. Great taste, good variety and reasonably clean.

Pros: great local atmosphere, good taste, cheap
Cons: some may find it noisy, prepared food is exposed to air
