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.

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