Lots of choices and freshly made. Might be considered a little pricey for locals but its still good value for money with the size of their yong tau foo. Definitely a great place to eat!

Being a Ipoh local, many people told me I need to go there. Went there last year. really disappointed. The you tau foo is nothing special but super expensive. Let's rock is better with much choice. Will not go back

This is a place that has been around for ages and it has stood the test of time. The Yong Tau Foo here is very decent. It is traditional and conscientiously prepared and there is a superb variety. To be honest I think it is...better than anything in the Klang valley and I'd say that because of the quality of its filling - the heart and soul stuffing. It is done with fresh fish and has a bounce on its bite, unlike some of the "famous" KL and Ampang venues where the stuffing is mushy. The Yong Tau Foo here tastes clean, perhaps almost too clean for some tastes that are used to the kick of MSG laden food. So, if that's what you are expecting, you might be disappointed. But if you can appreciate quality and variety of a traditionally prepared, homely taste, you'll like this. You won't feel sick because it's not too greasy and you won't feel thirsty after because of too much MSG. The Yong Tau Foo is usually paired with your choice of noodle and you can have it in curry, assam laksa, clear soup or dry tossed (kon-lo). They are all very decent. There is a lot of other stuff there as well to try and it'll be hard to resist the roast pork. That's pretty good too but its not the best... Siu-Yoke in KL and PJ is a lot better IMHO. Still, this is a place that's worth a visit if you happen to fancy Yong Tau Foo... but there is really so much more to eat in Ipoh...More

People mostly come here for the yong tau fu. You can get freshly fried yong tau fu here. Ice red bean is also one of the must try when you visit here. YOu also also try the crunchy and juicy roast pork here which is...just beside of the YTF stall.More

Look at the layer of grease on the floor that non careful person would have slip and fall. Still a must not miss location for the food (mostly deep fried) and co order with noodles of your choice in different sauce.

I liked there choice and variety and there are other things to eat than just the normal yong tau foo. Assam Laksa tastes good and the chicken is actually very tasted. The kueh wasn’t as nice however the soup at this stall is really good....This tree foot hawker has plenty of hawkers next to it so get here and try the food and if too full of next door. We came here on the way back from Kellie Castle and Gua Tempurung.More

This has been a must-go whenever we are visiting Ipoh and the YTH is comfort food to our soul. Their Penang laksa still maintain the authentic taste.

It is a typical suburban coffee shop, you will see lots of people cueing and eating. The taufoo is tasty n quite cheap if compare to Big City.

I don't think so although no pork is served. But other stores around the place might have.
