Old place, the restaurant established at 1929. Old furniture. Many historical old pictures could be found here.

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.

We went to restaurant because of it's fame as the oldest in medan. As we walked in, we passed a display of cakes but i was not impressed as the cakes looked very ordinary. It was difficult to get the attention of the waiters. To be fair it was very busy and every table was full. But in the end... More

We went there to treat our colleagues who flew from Jakarta, since this restaurant is one of "Medan legendary restaurant" so they said. We reserved a table for 10, by the time we reached there, they gave us a round table with 10 chair where you have to sit very close to each other. So close till your arm can... More
