Too salty as opposed to herbal chicken. I would prefer Kentucky chicken over this. Or Lou Wong steamed chicken Not recommended for those with high blood pressure or diabetics.

We had tried others but still come back to Aun Kheng Lim as none was able to beat this old time favorite. The ones we had bought to take home had less herbs (tong kooi) and the way the chickens were baked were less tender...and juicy. We picked up 3 chickens from our favorite shop and after the long three and a half hours drive home they were still delicious. The meat was tender, well seasoned with aromas of the herbs and salt and juicy! We chilled a couple in an air tight container in the fridge and the chickens tasted as they were fresh from the shop. The trick was to steam it with wrappers on for a mere 5 minutes, and served immediately. So if you want to have your Salt Baked Chicken I recommend you to look no further other than Aun Kheng Lim for your salted chicken fix.More

The store sells ready made whole salted chicken to take away, one for 21 ringgits. The chicken is atill a little warm, not too big, very flavorful, and super very juicy. The two of us finished the whole chicken in 10 minutes.

Bought to try , randomly chose this stall as I was passing by. It was so so, a bit tad salty , but otherwise ok. If u have a big family, need to get more than 1 as it’s a really small chicken.

Chicken size is small as they use spring chicken. Reasonable price. One of the main ingredients used is the Angelica Roots aka Dong Gui, stuffed inside the chicken. During steaming (best to eat it hot), you can smell the aromatic herbs and I love the...taste of it. Chicken meat is tender with just the right balance of saltiness (best to eat with rice) and herbal flavours. Always bought frozen to bring back home.More

Wow the famous Ipoh salted chicken! This is not a shop, it's a factory already to despatch to any stop by car. Of course you are not leaving Ipoh without buying at least a couple of chicken for gifts.

The meat is tender and nice. I tried the "dang gui" favor, it suits my taste, can also try the original salted chicken if not sold out.

Chanced upon the shop and bought one as our friend told us we must try salt bake chicken when in Ipoh. There was no Q on a Thur afternoon. We brought it all the way to Cameron highlands; 2 of us had it for supper...in hotel room. Even though it's cold, meat is still tender and I love the herbal taste of angelica roots stuffed in the chicken. We finished the whole thing in 20min. Think it would taste even better when hot.More

The most popular salt chicken in Ipoh. Always required a queue & wait to be served. Tasting good & priced reasonable

To my muslim friend, I am sorry but I don't think the chicken is halal but you may offend your mother-in-law if you refuse to consume the meat as she must hv loved you very much to the extent that she always keep you in mind... More

May not be as it’s CNY and the shop is a traditional Chinese one. It’s best to call before you make a trip there.
