Easily our best food experience while travelling through Malaysia for 4 weeks. The price/quality is astoundingly good. Both meat, fish and vegetables were awesome in both flavour and texture. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. We just wish we would have stayed longer in...the area to eat here again. Best regards from Nijmegen, the Netherlands!More

We were one of the first few groups to walk in on a Sunday evening when the restaurant open for business at around 6 pm. Restaurant is big so not crowded at all. Waitress was helpful with recommending dishes suitable for elderlies as my mother...prefers softer food. Most expensive dish is the beef with button mushroom (RM68). We also had half the signature duck (RM45) and found the meat to be tender. Dessert wise, the avocado sago puree (RM12) was our favourite. They changed the red bean paste in the pancake (RM12) to lotus paste for mid-autumn festival. The crust was crispy and the lotus paste was not so sweet. Had a very filling dinner. Total spent RM380+ for 3 pax.More

If you are ever in Ipoh for a few days, do yourself a favor and check out this fine dining restaurant. It is one of my “3 must visit’ restaurant/cafe every time I visit my in laws in Ipoh. Food quality has been consistently outstanding...all these years since they were opened. Standard is very high, even by Malaysia elevated standards. It has the best version of the following dishes you can find in this town and perhaps even all of Malaysia in some instances: 1. Sweet and sour chicken (better than most pork version you can find) 2. Crispy Salted Egg Fried Prawns 3. Whole Steam Pearl Garoupa 4. Double boiled chicken soup The seafood Wah Tan Hor and Dim Sun are excellent as well. I am not a duck eater but I heard their lychee roast wood duck is top notch as well. During my recent 1 month trip in Ipoh, I must have visited this restaurant close to 10 times. That is testament to the quality considering all the competition. This is compliment by the impeccable 5 star service from the entire team. I am just surprised that this is not ranked #1 in all of Ipoh as I dare say I tried almost every restaurant in the current top 30 during the month.More

We ordered duck, beef stew. Duck was tasty and chewable. Beef was delicious with an aromatic flavour. The decor here is tasteful and it is never crowded. While prices are above average, they are still affordable. Service was decent and fast. We will be back.

We went for a late dinner on a weeknight around 8.45pm. A number of menu items were not available - 2 out of the 3 signature roast dishes were sold out, some dishes were replaced with others. Probably best to call in advance to ask...or go earlier to avoid disappointment. We had the signature smoked duck - which the minimum order is half a duck. And the sweet sour chicken which was good - there was a lot of meat instead of just batter. The booth seating on the right hand side are below noisy air conditioning vents. Service was okay. When I wanted to ask staff for chili sauce, their first reaction was “your next dish is coming” - as though they were used to being asked about slow service by other patrons. Overall it was okay relative to the size of the city Ipoh.More

If you are looking for a quiet and nice atmosphere place for meals, this is a good non pork Chinese restaurant. Love the lychee duck as well as the fried siew mai dimsum. The best part is so nice for a celebration yet the price...is value for money for a nice meeting lunch.. my only reservation is to tea served... It is served hot but it is not as aromatic as in the past visits I had in this restaurant..More

Tried to make a reservation for lunch by morning that day itself however being told by front office that lunch tables are all taken. For me it is a good sign as the heavy crowd is implying that the food must be good. I opted...for dinner reservation then and booked a table for 5pax at 1730. At about 4pm called and added 1 pax and they accommodated to our changes. Upon arrival at Weil Hotel we headed up to level 1 where Yuk Sou Hin resides and we found that the premise is closed. Feeling uneasy i proceeded to check with waiter outside and he brought us down to level g into another restaurant. He further explains that Yuk sou hin today is fully reserved despite our booking but assures us that although we are eating in different restaurant, the food will be served from the same kitchen. We agreed and proceed to sit in the restaurant. We have ordered these few items earlier during the phone reservation: Signature Lychee Smoked Duck (half)x1 Chicken Xiao Long Bao x2 Crab Meat Dumpling x2 Cod Fish Dumpling x2 We further ordered: Fried Vermicelli x1 Chinese tea and water The dishes served first was Signature Smoked Duck. Followed with 6 basket of dumplings all in one go. Then Fried vermicelli. The waiter is helpful and helped us to replenish chinese tea and condiment. Bill came at about Myr130++ which is reasonable. Overall with all the highly appraised review on the food available on Tripadvisor and other food reviews we have expected a better experience.More

Whether it's a quiet business lunch, yum cha with the ladies,a lavish dinner, or you want to entertain friends or hold a wedding banquet,Yuk Sou Hin never fails to impress. Quality of food has always been top notch but of late it's been even better...with a new chef and manager, Ron. The dim sum selections for lunch are exquisite and simply delicious while the dinner menu is bespoke while still reasonably priced. The quiet elegance of the place, with private rooms available,and the attentive service, all add up to make Yuk Sou Hin THE go-to restaurant in Ipoh. Do not miss the signature wood-smoked duck and beef brisket noodles!More

I often visit this restaurant with family and friends. Their food has always been consistent ever since. Their Dim Sum menu is something to look for. Even the main menu features good dishes and everything is pork free. The restaurant also serves a wide array...of soups and noodles, which are my favourite. Their staffs possess good customer centric with the right attitude. Mr. Ron, the Restaurant Manager is always there to greet guests as well as their Chef who is often seen mingling with guests. I definitely recommend this restaurant which is highly rated in Ipoh.More

it all depends on your timing. Yes, this restaurant might be slightly under staff due to high turnover, hence the slower service. if you care to mention that you are in a hurry then they might give priority to your group.
