This is an old and atmospheric place. It was very busy but service was good and the food arrived promptly. There is an extensive menu of western, Chinese and local dishes and reasonably priced. The pictures around the walls of the place in the 1930s show it little changed. A good option.

This is the oldest restaurant in Medan with Dutch colonial feeling. The staffs are dressing in white uniform and they are not very client oriented. Most of the staffs just standing and chatting. The food is good and the chocolate cakes are fabulous. You will like the Indonesia dishes but a bit salty and oily. The famous fried rice is... More

Still one of medan's most favourite restourant after so many years. They made so little changes since so long, the place still look alike it's 80's. A good place to eat steak and fine dessert. Be careful with your belonging in the street outside, many motorcyclist robber are active in the neighborhood

Not very impressed by the food nor the menu, as we found a lot of them are nicer and cheaper elsewhere in Medan. The bunch of waiters and waitress offered poor service, I have ordered a sambal terong (egg plant) which he mistakenly thought is sambal telur (egg), and he didn't inform that the nasi sayur I ordered was already...

Interesting historic pictures on the restaurant. Food average, price reasonable. Tried the ice cream, not bad but nothing special. Would have love to try the cake but was too full, but the cakes looks really tempting with so many variety of choice.

not sure whether they were cleaning something or exhaust from the street, but the smell when we ate their made me nauseous. I went by later and the smell was still there, which will preclude me from dining here again.
