This place is just perfect!! The atmosphere was great, soooo romantic at night. Building and interior are old styled decorated. More importantly, super delicious dessert!!! I did not try the main course, but I definitely try the famous Java ice cream (mocca and rhum flavor) and several variants of cakes. The cakes are old styled, very different compared to the... More

The food is so-so but this historical building definitely exudes a charm dated back from the colonial era. The service staff is not very friendly. I went around 3pm, there is hardly any customers there and I actually expected a better service.

This is the first real meal we have and definitely not disappointing, Cumi-cumi is the word that remain in my head for a while - its actually cuttlefish. Great ambiance, not too crowded for lunch and the waiters are friendly. Will definitely come back.

The restaurant certainly has an old fashiooned charm and the availability of some Dutch dishes certaintly gives it a colonial feel. The desserts are pretty good and overall I recommend the restaurant but I don't recommend the mie goreng (fried noodles). This dish is really nothing special; it's basically just your ordinary cheap Chinese take-out fried noodles.

Be it for birthdays, new years, xmases, valentines, anniversaries, when asked, "which cake do you want?". 90% of the time, it would be Tip Top. Now that my husband and I live out of town, for every stop that we are in Medan, he has to have it too. That's the extend of our obsession. Although mostly we ordered cakes... More

Very classic resto in Medan. If you'd like to try Indonesia Nasi Padang. Try it here. Price is reasonable. Taste is on spicy side. Another specialty of TipTop is their traditional wooden baked Cake. Very rare and traditional taste cake sold here. Their choice of ice cream is also not bad.

This restaurant is part of the history of Medan and there are lots of reviews and information found in guidebooks, articles and other TV shows. It is situated in Kesawan area, Chinatown of Medan. The decoration is nice and indeed can transport you to old colonial times (especially the non AC part in front of the restaurant) and they have... More

This retro restaurant brings you back in time. It has a longstanding history starting in the 30's of the previous century. They serve delicious Nasi Goreng. Excellent price / quality. It was nice to have been there.

It may be the oldest bakery shop but the cakes are not that fantastic. You could get much better cakes elsewhere.
