Ipoh Best Dim Sum – 10 dim sum restaurants to try!

The best dim sum in Ipoh?

Well, I’ve tried so many and while I can’t guarantee you that you will like the ones that I prefer, I’m certain that you would be able to find one that you enjoy from the list of Ipoh’s best dim that I’ve compiled here.

Like always, I paid for my food, all visits are incognito and the number of diners varies from 2 – 6 partners.
I’m open to suggestions/recommendations so do drop me a message here (under comments) or fb.com/wackybecki or fb.com/RebeccaSawBlog.

As with all food, bear in mind that taste is subjective and all outlets will experience ups and downs.
Constructive feedback/reports (if the food standards has dropped, service was bad on your visit) and recommendations are most welcome.

My top choice (as of April 2016) goes to (1) Zui Le Xuan alongside (2)Dynasty Palace, (3) Chooi Yue, (4) Lok Hin, (5) Sun Kim Aik and (6) Sun Kok Kee.
For HALAL, there is only one which is Greentown Dim Sum which I personally won’t recommend to anyone, but like I said, it is the only halal dim sum option available.
