Different food culture

Well the waiter will come to table and place all the food they have in the kitchen. you selected what food you like to eat and then at the end they take back if you have not touched to serve back again after re heating to another customer.

The Restaurant located directly in front of Jam Gadang, the first impression is old and rusty but it has quite clean table and tableware. Choose the 2nd Floor for your best eating experience since you can see Jam Gadang very clearly and crowd surrounding. If you know what you want to it, you can order directly but you can have...

We went there and led to our table, and within few minutes the table was full of different kinds of typical Padang foods. Its rendang was really delicious, and also its "dendeng blado", although they were a little bit hot for western taste, we enjoyed it. The price was very cheap, but the restaurant it self was a bit dirty.... More

The service was bad. The waiters keep saying this is what we got. So we try to search the food for our table from other table. The food is not that good. All I can say is this resto is not recommended for your journey to bukittinggi.

I just wonder why this restaurant does not provide a nice mushalla (prayer place) for its customers who mostly i guessed Muslims (the one in Padang has a nice one). There is one but a very small. It is too busy... More

I went there after reading some reviews about it. The restaurant was very busy visited by local. I visited it two times. First in the evening when the food was almost gone and the second time in the afternoon. My observation was that you should not choose to sit on second floor as the staff might have difficulties bringing plates... More
