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

If you want I nice place to drink or a great place to eat this is the place. Great staff and great ambience then if you want it a bit more for the younger people you can always go out the back to shoot

Well we celebrated our first valentines here yrs ago. We have been back several times over the past 4yrs and the restaurant although very expensive was very good. Traders obviously thinks they can now sell worse food (and quantity) than Mcdonalds and charge western prices. I would advise you not to eat here as they are just stealing your money... 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...
