The evening was exceptional with good food, great ambience, attentive service and a good Batak band. If you have to business entertainment to... read 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.

Every businessmen should try to deal with, lunch or dinner with Western style and beer. Bring your partner to try but not your life partner.

Food fair, atmosphere ok but they do bait and switch on customers when it comes to the 'special deals' offered during happy hours. It happened to me and several other people on different occasions and the bar staff just laughs it off. Avoid the place unless you enjoy being ripped off.
