What better way to start the day with breakfast than the traditional way in Ipoh – dim sum.

Today, we’re at Ming Court Hong Kong Tim Sum.

Getting around Ipoh is fairly simple; either you take the bus, take a taxi, Grab, or walk. If you’re driving, there are lots of parking lots nearby to park your cars. Even though the parking lots are nearby, you may have to walk a fair distance to the shop. 

We had hired a van to bring 15 of us around Ipoh. Scroll below to watch a YouTube video on where and what we covered in 1 day – starting with Ming Court.

Ming Court Hong Kong Tim Sum

Ming Court is located just behind Hotel Excelsior Ipoh. It is on the ground floor of a standalone block.

By the time we reached at about 8.30am, there was already a long queue at the front of the shop. Even inside the shop was also fully packed out. According to reviews on Google, it is advisable to go there as early as possible, because the restaurant opens from 6am and for half a day only.

The queue was exceptionally long that day, no thanks to the other 2 famous dim sum shops that were closed for the day.

The restaurant had a number system. You had to tell them how many people you have, and they would then give you a number and tell you how long you had to wait for your table(s).

Even though the queue was about 20 minutes long, but by the time it was our turn; it was worth the wait.

Dim Sum

When we sat down, the waiters brought a tray of dim sums. The dim sums were in metal containers. Each container had a dot that was color-coded.

Hence, on the spot and on the order chit, the waiter would then note the dim sums that were taken.

Unlike the dim sum in Kuala Lumpur, the steamed dim sum in Ming Court or in Ipoh for that matter, were in small mini sizes. Price-wise, the dim sum was also Ipoh-priced.

We ate the usual siew mai, har gow, fried beancurd roll, seaweed rolls, etc.


During our 3D2N trip in Ipoh, Ming Court was one of the 10 places we visited in 1 day. Watch YouTube Short below.
