Its sense of tradition and quality of ice-cream. Its bustly on a busy one way street, but has stayed the same forever. Food quality is good. Fried Kwe Tiau Goreng and a bottle of Bintang go down wonders.

Still stick with their old fashioned ice cream will give you a great taste. Totally different with modern ice cream. You may also taste their pastry and cake, freshly baked and served. And you can taste all those things with affordable price.

I visited this restaurant during my visit to Medan. The main reason was because of its popularity as one of the oldest and legendary restaurant there. Furthermore, the locals praise their ice cream. The restaurant is typical for the old ones in Indonesia. The atmosphere of old Indonesian restaurant that witnessed eras before and after independence can be felt there.... More

We intentionally went to this restaurant just for the ice cream. Not because we don't like the food, it's just we just had our dinner some place else and wishes to have a good dessert in a good place. We ordered 2 types of ice creams, and both are great. Ystaart Ice cream and Donauwellen Ice Cream. Recommended!
