“Great Food with Good Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2012

This restaurant offers a great ambiance, excellent service and a unique cuisine. We visited the restaurant twice because we wanted to try up their set menu and a la carte menu at a very reasonable price. We enjoyed the food by our group and even the red wine by glass was good! I will come back!

“Not up to my expectation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2012

through the website and other people recommendation, i decided to go to 'The Bistro' to celebrate a special occasion. I must say that i did not put up high expectation. i ordered two set dinner. the price was alright, reasonable. But the food was just average. Nothing spectacular. it didn't manage to impress me and my partner. In term of food design, it was good. Just the taste is not up to my expectation. The main course (chicken) could put some more effort in improving the taste. the taste and texture of the sauce i had with the chicken was just too plain to match with the chicken. however the another main course, salmon was alright. Out of the 5 course, the one which is up to my expectation was the appetizer.

If you ask me whether would i still visit The Bistro the next round, i need to think twice.
Each person have different preference of taste of food. in my opinion, I'm not satisfied with what i had.

“An unforgetable experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2012

We hosted our company dinner at The Bistro. The meal was excellent, and Chef Michael even came out to greet us. The band was excellent, and we sang and danced the night away. Never thought you could have such a good time in Ipoh. General Manager Mark Rummery and his staff, Anne Das and Chiam E-Fay provided an experience that I'll never forget. I'll be back!

“Great value for Wonderful ambience, Service & Food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

We decided to try out the new menu at The Bistro, Impiana hotel one Friday evening and was very impressed. We took the set menu which costed RM62net, which came with an app, soup, main and dessert. Wow! I was so stuffed that when coffee arrived, i couldnt even take one sip. Everything was perfect. The homemade breads that were served were warm and delicious too!

Service here was another plus point. All the staff were genuinely friendly and quick to respond to our needs.

Happy Hour is one for one till 9pm. And lunch is also served.
Definately recommended! Good Job Chef Michael. We will be back!
