Good food and nice set up

Came here by chance as a friend told me there is beer and live music. The place is a bit surreal if we think about Medan and its whereabouts: the waitresses are dressed in german style and the place reminds me of a german biergarten, the menu is written in German.

if you love to chat with friends while having beer, Roland's is one of the best place..but, the food portion getting smaller and smaller..I often order french fries to go with our beer, but it came really really small.. it is not even a handful of fries...a GERMAN restaurant should give the right portion of western food...quality and quantity matters!

This is always be my favourite german restaurant. It's Brathaendl mit Pommes (half chicken) very delicious, but the portion became smaller than the last time I ordered. The services could be better. It's rather hard to find parking in saturday night. Price is bit higher and the atmosphere is suitable for family with young children.

Roland's has the absolute best German pretzels I've ever had. His gulash is spectacular. For those two dishes I have been going there for three years.

Whenever you want to have a good beer or nice western food (incl. pork) or just meet some Medan expats, come here for dinner. Especially Saturdays and Fridays are very busy. You can buy homemade bratwurst here too.

The food is average to bad and the choices are quite limited. However it is one of the better places for ambiance on Satya Budhi street. A lot of people living in TASBI go here for a drink.

Roland's has a nice mix of European and Indonesian cuisine and a large selection of beer. Very relaxing atmosphere. You can also buy fresh baked whole grain bread to take home. The best bread in Medan!

We ordered 4 beer and 3 juice/tea plus food for everyone. 2 plate foods arrived after 15 minutes followed by tea and juice but nothing else, no beer at all. We asked more time different staff about our drink but had to wait 20 minutes for 4 beers!!! The guy who takes our order was busy with big screen TV,... More

It looks like the owner/chef or both have a halfhearted action for this German place,the place is nice,but lacking the soul of a lively restaurant, food is ok,but could be better,still a nice spot if you long for schweinehaxe and some German sausages
