Salted chicken is one of Ipoh famous local delicacy. The shop always busy and pack with buyers especially during festive period and school holiday season, hard to find parking. Glad that they have drive thru service.

Best salted chicken which I have. Got 2 types of packing. One type can last for month.... Whereas the other type just for few days. RM 21each as for today.

What a disappointment! It's not even delicious... Just salty and mild herbal taste. Won't buy again.

A local favourite which only caters for take away. The chicken was a little salty, I guessed the name lent an inkling to the taste. A small bird but taste was luscious. Won't regret! RM 21

This is a must have each time I am in Ipoh, and I am so glad they're still around year after year! I grew up in the laidback town of Ipoh and later migrated to Singapore in my late teens; having been away for so...More

There was a slight queue when we arrived, and it was 21RM for each salted chicken. There weren't any tables to dine in, and they also sold frozen packs of chicken too. The chicken was not tough, and the skin and juices made it delicious...More

My Ipoh friend recommended the shop to us, saying that the salt-baked chicken is a must-buy when we visit Ipoh. We did and we were glad! The salt-baked chicken was infused with the aroma and taste of Chinese herbs, and it tasted great- every single...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.

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