Most of my relatives in Medan ask me to try some traditional Padang's food while visiting Medan . Yes, this restaurant has a lot of menu to offer . But the price is quiet expensive . I not sure if backpacker travellers can come because this is not a budget restaurant . But the food was going to twist your... More

The taste just like padangnese standard, nothing special and it is expensive also. For me, it is not worth.

Food is great especially the Beef Rendang, Curry Ayam and Udang Bakar. Avocado juice is great too. Service is very efficient, we were served with a table full of food soon after we have arrived at the restaurant. However, price can be considered not cheap either.

I have been two times for work and we experienced local food. they serve you lot of small and different "tapas" and you pay just what you eat. fish, meat, rice, veggies...all you want it will be served. just pick what you (think) you like and enjoy eating with your hands...they serve ball with water to wash your hands...traditional!

If you like rendang very much just go to eat in this place. They have a very good rendang food. Just remember how to stop eating 😄

This restaurant was quite a shock, we had 4 dishes, only one of them with a little bit of meat and some rice and paid 200Tausend. The food was quite nice and the service friendly, but for the quality of food we are used to pay around 80 Tausand at the most. Very disappointing experience

This is one of the local food with delicious taste.. but must becareful it's spicy, so must ask for non spicy food. But if you wanna try then try eat with fried chicken and ask foe chilli. One pack for rice and chicken is around $2

I go to Medan for many times but I haven't tried this famous restaurant. Everyone said that the Rendang is unforgettable and YES. not only the beef Rendang but also the chicken Rendang. Unfortunately because it's too late so, we can't get the dendeng and Kikil Cabe Hijau and also sate padang that we're craving for. Thus, I will be... More

At least half a dozen. Maybe a dozen or more. Some are better, some or worse. I reviewed earlier this year the one on Jalan Palang Merah, had a good experience, and gave it a 4. Somehow that Tripadvisor review ended up with this Garuda Restaurant, which is on Jalan Gajah Mada. I recently had a bad experience at this... More
