Lunch at the Traders.

Had lunch at Traders on our second day. Arrived a bit late but service was good albeit a bit slow. Go for the western dishes as they tasted good. The tempura for the Japanese dishes were below par. can skip. They offer a mini buffet - coffee, tea, fruits, soup, etc, that is open till 3pm. Good... read more

An expat magnet , especially on Friday and Sat nite the food selection is both asian and western , try the Hang Seng Fried rice . After a good meal , there is live band entertainment on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Shoot which is just behind Traders.

After a few days in Medan and my fill of Indonesian food, I just needed a good western meal. My Medan friend suggested we go to The Traders for a good meal. The evening was exceptional with good food, great ambience, attentive service and a good Batak band. If you have to business entertainment to do, I strongly recommend this... More

The restaurant provides excellent meat cuts and their cooks know how to prepare them to perfection. Their menu selection is quite variated and includes japanese and italian dishes too. However their meat remains the top choice. The atmosphere is warm and comfortable and on week ends the vibes are boosted by a live band. Minus, the overall menu is a... More

Our friend who lives in Medan took us to The Traders for drinks and to meet up with some friends. It's like a 'club' where expats tend to congregate I think. There were special offers of beer, buffet dinner and live music on the Saturday we were there. The buffet dinner was fairly good value for money and especially so... More

One of the nicest restaurants in Medan with a cost environment. Live piano music and food is good, really like the lamb fried rice. Useful tip: if you are in a group of 5 people you get a bottle of Beringer Sparkling almost for free. Good selection of wines, which is rare in Medan.

Overpriced by Medan standards, both the food and the drink. But if you want reasonable western food in Medan, there are not so many choices.... We decided to go for the Saturday evening buffet dinner, which is much more reasonably priced at IDR 110,000 (compared to dishes that cost 3 or 4 times that). Fairly good selection (but not as...

Been there few time a while ago when I was in Medan, they have good quality steaks and they have beverage option which I always enjoyed with my colleagues after work...they divided two places between dining area and lounge area,which is very good for the customers, will recommend this place for sure for everyone.
