The best Minang/ Padang's Culinary

They have so many menus to offer but their Rendang & Dendeng Balado are the best. You can even ask for delivery order.

I love the fact that I could have a bit of many dishes in one plate! The gravies are so full of flavours and the food is simply delicious.

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.
