Not as busy as the last I visited but still the top on the list of famous salted chicken. It comes in two versions now. Either buy a freshly roasted one to be consumed immediately or a vacuumed packed one that can be store longer...More

Perfect salted chicken. The herbs, the saltiness is delicious. No matter you eat it as snacks or a proper meal, it will not disappoint you. There is basically no queue at all. Chicken is prepared beforehand, but worry not, the quality is assured. Choose the...More

Taste good however chicken is quite small which good for 2 pax. Bit pricey RM21 for whole chicken. Pack in ready for consumption or frozen

Taste of the chicken is not too salty. The location is in the centre of Ipoh. For people who want to take away can just stop in front of the shop. The worker will come and ask the order and hand the chicken to you...More

A takeaway only food that is signature of Ipoh. Hence, must try for the experience of being in Ipoh. Unwrapping this chicken is like playing "pass-the-parcel": the waxed paper being removed in layers seems unending, finally revealing a small chicken way smaller than the original...More

No, just salted chicken only. Packed in take away packets although you can eat at a few stand up tables outside the shop.

I think it isn't necessary unless you're getting a lot. This is a takeaway-only restaurant by the way...no tables there for you to sit down and eat, if I'm not mistaken. Enjoy!
