Nasi Ganja Ipoh

Exceptional Nasi Kandar!

This is an exceptional food when you arrived in Ipoh. Local people no matter what race really enjoy the lovely nasi kandar here in Ipoh. It's called Nasi Ganja. Sound strange isn't? But why people do call this restaurant as nasi ganja?

This rice or ingredient is not against the authority but this is a word that desribe how addicted the nasi kandar could be when you eat at the first time. You will sure to try again and again!

Rest assure this is the best Nasi Kandar food and most camparable (on par) with some famous nasi kandar in Penang!

Huge, Huge portion

Came to try the famous nasi ganja as everyone seems to recommend it.

It was a corner shoplot on a busy street, and was full of people wanting to try the delicious food.

But service was quick, and the price was reasonable. And the food was so, so good! And the portions were HUGE!

A bit spicy, so probably not suitable for small children.

Must try whenever you visit Ipoh.

a must-stop lunch fix in ipoh

wenever heading north from KL, we will surely drop by here for our nasi ganja fix. it is a simple nasi kandar (rice) with fried chicken, beef, seafood and served with salted eggs & generous curries (yes, lots of curry). if you're not into nasi kandar, choose from the menu of chinese kopitiam where the nasi kandar stall sits in. i would suggest the kaya & egg toast, white coffee and its signature caramel custard pudding.

A fantastic Northern Indian food in Ipoh!

I've dine-in there twice and both of my dining experience was superb. The menu is extensive and varied. The waiter will be there to explain the if some of the meal is new to me at that time also he will give a recommendation on what to order for the first timer. The service also very fast.

The food was delicious. It is as good as what people claim it to be. I love the Naan, Keema, Lamb Briyani, Chappati and their Palak Paneer.

Also, it is halal. As for the price, I think it is affordable because you will definitely leave the restaurant with a heavy stomach. The ambience is very cozy and clean. A very suitable place to have a family gathering. A must go for sure.

Alternatives other than nasi ganja,vanggey or kandar while in Ipoh.

Me and hubby were in Ipoh to service our bike at the bmw service centre. Hubby didn't want to eat the nasi ganja or nasi vanggey like the norm or synonym with Ipoh. We decided to try this nasi padang restaurant.

They offer varieties of dish. We tried their beef rendang ,paru goreng,ikan masin(salted fish) ,masak lemak pucuk ubi,sotong sambal and of course sambal hijau. Overall was delicious and I loved the beef rendang. I would recommend this place if you are not really into curry or the usual packed place while in Ipoh.

For the Hot and Spicy tastebuds

A popular restaurant in Ipoh town. Well known for Nasi Padang delicacies and a favourite for those looking for a satisfying lunch. You will be spoilt for choices as there were rows and rows of Padang dishes like 'rendang' and 'sambal'... however, service was a bit slow and the prices were quite expensive. Nevertheless, it has a nice ambience and most of the dishes have the authentic taste which could compensate the high pricing. It is worth trying.

Will return

Food portion was big and the pricing is of good value. Had the chicken briyani rice and baked fish - 2 thumbs up for the rice however the fish was slightly undercooked. Would suggest to invite a few friends / family when dine in as most of the items are really proportionally large and excellent for sharing. Another added advantage to this restaurant is the ample space parking area - one less issue to worry about.

Noisy, poor service, average food

The restaurant is loud and quite busy (we went on a weekday around 9pm). The staff are not very helpful and very brisk with their service. There is a Wide variety of menu items, most priced very reasonably. I ordered their village style nasi lemak which was about 8.50RM. Rice was tasty, amount of peanuts and anchovies was sad and chicken was on the dry side. Also ordered their ice tea (with milk) which was tasty and only about 3RM. My boyfriend also ordered one of their nasi lemak dishes, and his chicken was only room temperature when he got it. Overall not the best restaurant, but seems to be super popular among the locals. If you need a late night meal (most places close by 7pm-9pm in Ipoh) this wouldn't be a terrible option.

Yummylicious Ayam Kampung

The nasi lemak ayam kampung was.not bad at all. Price was less than RM10 per plate. However the nasi lemak is too little so 1 is not enough. I tried the nasi lemak sambal sotong too. They have other foods too such as tomyam or seafoods or even fried rice. Try the coconut shake, nor bad at all for coconut lover.

Wide menu choice, friendly service

We stopped here for a simple dinner. There are a few outlets all operating out of the same space, which we found a little confusing at first, but a friendly waiter helped us out and explained the options to us.

My husband had been pining for chicken murtabak, so he ordered two!! I went for simple egg roti, which came with Dahl and chicken curry sauce, which was so good I ordered another! The food was really cheap.

The restaurant was clean and tidy and there is a hand wash area out front.

We loved it so much we planned to go back again, but sadly didn't have time.

Nasi kandar

At first we want to try the other famous nasi ganja, but the queue was long and it was raining, so we end up here since it's just at the end of the same block.

Parkings a lot near here as it's a corner lot.

The interior also was nice, and the food was good.

Price also reasonable too (we had fried chicken, big slice of chicken curry using ayam kampung and white rice, ice tea and salim coffee and the total just rm20).
