Business minded. Commercialized. Food: Costly but so so. Not worth the price. Too much of Ajinomoto. Nothing worth to mention. Over advertised by online bloggers.

This tim sum outlet certainly live up to its popularity- located in the heart of Ipoh city and surrounded by other tim sum competitors! There's always a queue which is easily countered and solved because of the fast turnover of the customers and quick and efficient service of the restaurant. The tim sum here is traditionally served in wooden trays... More

The food quality been degraded a lot since opening, very crowded during holiday which i felt is so overrated. Dim sum too much of pork. Service is very bad, staff impolite. The opposite restaurant is a much better choice.

As a Ipoh born Chinese, my tastebuds should be fairly accurate. This restaurant had been in Ipoh for ages but survived much competition, recessions etc. Generally speaking, it offers average/above average Cantonese dim sum. There is much variety, has many tables, which are often occupied in the peak times. Dim sum is OK, good sized portions. The taste is ok... More

Inexpensive food and good quality. The only downside is . we have to queue to collect our dim sum ( self-serve ) for most items. But the staffs are very attentive and helpful . Will come again.

When I said "worse", it's truly is. Not just by me but by all the Locals who live here in Ipoh. We can't denied, they have strong image and great social reach to deceive foreigners but the truth is out there. :) I am not any competitor stall owner and truly I have tasted and given them twice chances but...

The variety is there but locals prefer to go elsewhere due to the lack of parking, proper service and taste. Too commercialized and the reputation is only based on historical basis, not really on the taste and prices. The building looks grand but nothing special actually. Service is also rendered by foreign employees - to be served dim sum by... More

2nd time to ipoh and 2nd time visiting this place as we went late & little range of dim sum left at Ming Court. Pick your own dim sum at the counter or wait for the trolley to be pushed to your table. Dim sum is ok but quite pricey. Would like to try ming court the next time I... More

Many ppl during holiday, have to find your table first and then order your tea and they will give you a dim sum card, you need to go and que to get your dim sum, the loa sa pau and yam cake are very nice others dim sum so so only and their services are quite fast when serving you.
