Lim Ko Pi - NON-HALAL RESTAURANT Arriving in Ipoh is no complete without visiting Lim Ko Pi. Located in the heart of Ipoh's Old Town district among one of its pre-war shophouses that has the timeless heritage architecture appeal. As for its interior, it has...the Oriental old world charm dining experience that serve up extremely delicious Malaysian Chinese's cuisine with homely hospitality. Pricing? Extremely reasonable!More

I was not expecting an air conditoned old timer cafe. Very nice. With classic songs playing in the background too. All sorts of curry noodles here. Their rice wine chicken is super!

Delicious breakfast and happy service. Very reasonable prices and good SOPs in place. We enjoyed the BBQ Pork Wanton Noodles, Kaya Toast and Soft-Boiled Eggs all washed down with an iced Milo and Milk Tea. Wonderful!

We tried the curry mee, i would say no surprise. Kaya butter toast also average only. Too little kaya. Anyway coffee and egg custard are great.

Air conditioned. Due to covid, one table only can be seated two person. Service is good. Place is clean. Food and drinks are nice. Worth a try!!

Went there to try their curry and coffee. Authentic and local taste. Old style decorations and comfy place to relax when you're somewhere nearby.

I would not usually breakfast with triple meat curry, but it was excellent, with either a 98 Coffee or Ipoh White Coffee. A great way to start the day and didn't sit too heavy. If you're hiking through cave temples, you can use the extra...calories!More

The coffee is locally roasted and is typically served with condensed milk, evaporated milk (with or without sugar) or black. Ask for what you want. They are served with a local fried dough *(a type of cruller, locally known as euw char keuy). Try their...local toasts, typically served with either a coconut pandan spread (kaya) or butter/margarine and a soft boiled egg. Or, go for something more substantial. I tried the vegetarian curry mee (which I loved!) and my partner tried the vegetarian fried rice (which needed a bit more salt). There are lots of non vegetarian items too, so it was a nice surprise that it catered to vegetarians.More

It was a satisfying lunch at Lim Ko Pi. Ordered Sunday special nasi lemak with chicken and it was the best fragrant rice on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Not forgetting the free red bean. The hokkien prawn noodles for me was good as well as...it was not oily. Nice and comfortable setting out and surprisingly not hot. They also have branches in KL.More

Opted to try this place to avoid the hustle bustle, wait and sweat at a food court or coffee shops for variety of Ipoh goodies. We had almost everything- food is disappointing, just doable. The famous Ipoh bean sprouts and chicken flat noodle is rubbish...by Ipoh standards!More
