This was my favorite restaurant growing up, the carmen ice cream and ox-tongue steak is to die for. But the service is really poor! Especially the female staffs who are in charge at the bakery section, they appear to be lazy and unfriendly towards the customer. Once I specifically put in an order for a cake to be decorated to...

Nice place full of history (there's a photo with australian troops parading in front of the restaurant after WWII) with good food and extraordinary ambiance on saturdays. Funny feeling listening international tunes in Indonesian voices

The tounge steak... and those desserts... and really-really nice coffee. My father brought me to TipTop whenever we visits Medan, and now whenever I comes to Medan, I've always spend at least one evening there. The atmosphere is old but it is their main attraction along with the live band that plays all night long. Enjoy their live music and... More

I know I will miss this restaurant even when I first came. I really like the steak, especially the fish steak. And also love they're cakes and ice cream. I think everybody have to try this restaurant.

An institution of Medan located on the shopping street of the colonial era. The best reason to go is to soak in whatever remains of the deco ambiance of the place, sitting on rattan chairs sipping coffee in the open-air sidewalk part. Good strong traditional coffee with selections of old-school snacks and ice creams (some still come with Dutch names).... More

I normally eat the nasi sayur here (mix vegetable rice, indonesian style). Besides the local food, this restaurant also offers variety of western food such as steak, chicken chop and variety of cakes and ice cream dessert.

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.

When I called to order a big cake, the staff answered the phone with lazy voice. I asked if I can have flower decorations made on the cake and they hung up. I called again they put me on hold for so long. If the owner care of his business and customers, I hope you will change your staffs because... More
