Restaurant Garuda

Reviewed By Kama7880

Nice food. They had many varieties. If you dont like the dish, they will take it away and replace with another choice. And pay only those you have consumed. Quite a reasonable price. Went there with a group of friends. Recommended. Will go there again if i had the chance.

Merdeka Walk

Reviewed By HARTONO T

This is one of the icon in Medan,but the negative thing is they use public park which was the green area of Medan for culinary attraction. It has been a lot of dispute regarding using the open space which has destroyed the conservation. The eateries here are not special as you can find all this outlets in shopping mall and same company. This are created a lot of traffic jam especially at weekend. The parking areas are not well provided as cars have to park at pedestrian. Nothing special except for those youngsters who like to hangout at night.

Rumah Makan Tabona

Rumah Makan Tabona specialises in serving authentic Medanese Curry since 1983. Only served free-range chickens and only the best beef with carefully selected spices/herbs, cooked daily to ensure every single bowl served is the best curry you ever tasted.

Reviewed By deddytaufikhidayat

Tabona is a restaurant that serve special curry Medan with affordable prices and fast service.So that when we come to the restaurant we will be welcomed by the waiter, to order the menu.The main menu is Chicken and Beef Curry Medan. But there are also noodles and beehoon.Food prices for curry averages start at IDR40K. Taste with good standards.The atmosphere is crowded during lunch, so we have to wait or a lot of seats available.The number of seats is around 400 pax. Some are inside and some are outside.Parking is along the roadside in front of the restaurant, but it's a bit difficult to find it.Location from Medan Merdeka Square, around 2.5 kilometers

Mi Aceh Titi Bobrok

Reviewed By esubijono

It is my first time to visit this well known Mi Aceh. The place is not so urban-like structure and more like big a local building, very crowded especially during dinner time, and almost no parking space. But we are here to taste the spicy Mi Aceh and are not dissatisfied. Recommended for noodle's lovers or those who like to try the spicy Mi Aceh.

I never fail to visit this stall whenever I come for business in Medan. My favourite stall in whole of Medan. Best is their beef and chicken broth or soup. Normally I will order 1 beef soup and 1 chicken soup. I have never try other soup. I couldn't find anything in Malaysia as good as this soup. A must try if u r in Medan. Don't miss it.

Wajir Seafood

Reviewed By ssinaya3

Below average at best. Was the smallest crab i had seen. Taste was nothing great. Really average taste and presentation. Would never go here again. Bad traffic to reach the rest as well. But staff were attentive. Can you imagine, my crab arrived even while she was taking my order. Am wondering how that happened!No way is this the best. Lembur Kuring was wayyyy better!

Nelayan restaurant

Reviewed By Fauzy A

we were expecting this to be a sea food resto but turned out to be a fast service dimsum cum fast food like fried noodles and nasi goreng. There was a long queue but moved rather quickly. once seated the waitresses shoved you with arras of dimsum, can be quite an experience to fend them off before you can settle in. overall it was ok and price reasonable.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Marriott for several weeks. I enjoyed the omelette station every morning with a cappuccino. Both of which were made to order and brought to my table. A big thank you to Etika, Icha, Nuriani and staff for making my stay pleasant and memorable.
