Pekanbaru (Jawi: ڤكنبارو, Chinese: 北干巴鲁; pinyin: Běigānbālǔ, Dutch: Pakanbaroe), is the capital of Indonesian province of Riau, and a major economic center on the eastern part of Sumatra Island. It has an area of 632.26 km² with a population of 1,093,416. Located on the banks of the Siak River, which drains into the Strait of Malacca, Pekanbaru has direct access to the busy strait and was long known as a trading port. Pekanbaru was originally built as a market by Minangkabau merchants during the 18th century. Its name is derived from the Malay words for 'new market' ('pekan' is market and 'baru' is new).

We went in search for this canteen after Reading the reviews. It was as per expectation. The place was small but it had an extension in the building beside. The "ketupat sayur gulai paku" was good. The "satay kerang" was not bad. We tried the "teh telor" but it was too sweet. We don't think it was necessary to add sugar after they added sweet condensed milk. We think locals have sweet teeth. The bakwan or deep fried flour & vege was interesting.
Overall worth the visit to know what the fuss is about. Will go again.

I have come and eat here many times. It serves varying types of goods: seafoods, chicken, beef, vegetables...
All cooked and served as Malay Cuisine with a bit upgrade/modification, so you'll find it rather different from the real traditionally cooked Malay foods.
Clean, reasonably fast served.
Some delicious kueh and crackers provided (not for free) while waiting for the meal to be ready. Drinks are fresh, although too sweet. If you want, ask for less or separated sugar.
For me, try everything that appeals to you. All are great.

If you are in hurry to take your flight back, and not having lunch yet, you may try this restaurant. The location is very close to the airport, less than 10 minutes, so you can have last minute catch for local food.
Their main dish is 'ikan patin' a Freshwater fish which is very nice. Probably its a bit spicy, especially for foreigner, but its definitely very nice. Beside ikan patin, they have also other dishes which will be serve like Padang Restaurant.

Visited this place during my business trip to Pekanbaru and love all menus that we tried. We had Udang Gala Bakar, Baung (only found in Riau) Fish cooked in spicy and sour soup and Salai Asap Balado (Smoked Fish with spicy sambal)...Be careful if you cannot stand with spicy food since it is really spicy hahahaha...Recommended!

Liked the coffee and toast. Old place, full of advertising banners. Very crowded in the morning. Good luck finding empty table :)
