Garda Restaurant is supposedly a legendary Padang-Melayu food restaurant, but I didn't find anything extraordinary there. Overall, the food is good, but no specific distinction with other reputable yet cheaper chains like Sederhana. Even gulai kepala kakap, their signature dish, just taste OK.

Best taste for masakan padang in medan. If you're looking for the Indonesia traditional taste this would be the best restaurant in medan. The price is high tough, but if you have small budget, easy, buy the food to take away... You can mix the food you want, and its cheap.. Enjoy...

We arrived in Medan expecting some great Padang food at Garuda but were disappointed with the food. Moreover, the price was very high. There was a playground for children so that was a nice touch.

Minang-Melayu cooking, a blend of two most delicious cooking style in sumatra (in my opinion) perfectly personafied in the hands of the cooks in Garuda Restaurant, though the restaurant exist outside Medan, it's a must eat right here where it all begin on every traveller's visiting Medan agenda.

Taste is okay, sometimes the food served is cold but we can always ask them to heat it. Used to be the best padang food.

There are a lot of roadside restaurants in Medan that serve yummy and cheap Minang Cuisine, however sometimes you may need a better environment with air-conditioner provided for a special night, then you may choose Restaurant Garuda. The taste of their food is similar to those roadside restaurants, but the feeling of having Minang Cuisine in such a beautiful environment... More

Hard white rice, good thing is the smoking and non-smoking area is segregated. But the white rice is hard.
