They would ask your preference: sweet, bitter, thick etc. You are given 3 choice; small , medium and big size. Medium being about 35,000Rp each. Whenever, you need... More

One thing you need to know, YOU ONLY PAY IF IT IS DELICIOUS !! It is true, if you dont like the taste.... feel free to exchange it with the new one. #The WorldJumper

Good experienced and I can't believe they have all the services to serve . Durian is extremely good and the owner is very sincere to tell you what they have. Must visit if you are in Medan

My first impression when I arrived to this place was, "Wow, that's a LOT of durian they have there!" And the durians they sell were really, really good. Try eating the durian with the sticky rice they serve on the table (the one that is covered with banana leaf) for a real Medan experience, and be sure to try the... More

Opens for 24 hours, you can eat durians there and you can bring it to your hometown! they will make good packaging so you can bring it easily to your hometown, but remember the durians itself can only be in the open air for only 12hrs, otherwise you can't eat them. Nearby, you can eat Sate Padang also there!

This is the most famous place for eating durian. Open 24 hours, and almost every night full with customers. The durian is very delicious, and you can exchange if you don't like the taste. You can also bring back to your home town. They will wrap the box so the fragrant doesn't come out extremely and don't forget to put... More
