A little piec of Germany in Medan

Just had dinner and drinks with a colleague at Roland's German Restaurant here in Medan. Wow what a fantastic place - I have found that western style eating places are few here but this place was a shining light to tide over a very busy week. The atmosphere was tremendous, the choice and quality of... read more

"Lovely and nice restaurant with Good Food". That's what My opinion for my first impression when i step into the restaurant. The place is a little bit far from the city and not too much car parking lot. There's a live music on weekend. The platter is my most favorite one. Recommended !! 💕 After all, this place is suitable... More

Living in Indonesia, I sometimes miss non-indonesian food and a cold beer in a nice outdoor place. So, when we passed Roland a few months ago I promised myself to check it out the next time in Medan. From the moment we stepped in I liked it and the outdoor Beergarden came as a very pleasant surprise. We came on... More

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. Nevertheless, is's an Island of good vibes. It was... More

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.
