“Top Reason:while you need a comfortable and a bit classy restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

There are a lot of roadside restaurants in Medan that serve yummy and cheap Minang Cuisine, however sometimes you may need a better environment with air-conditioner provided for a special night, then you may choose Restaurant Garuda.

The taste of their food is similar to those roadside restaurants, but the feeling of having Minang Cuisine in such a beautiful environment is quite enjoyable too. The waiters will bring different types of food to you and you can always only choose those you wish to eat. The price is reasonable, four of us spent around Rp. 300, 000 including tax.

In conclusion, may choose this restaurant if you need a bit classy restaurant that serves Minang Cuisine for the purpose of treating guests or for a special day.

“hard white rice”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

Hard white rice, good thing is the smoking and non-smoking area is segregated. But the white rice is hard.

“Good enough”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

For me, its better than sederhana padang resto. Coconut oil in the foods not to much. Kikil cabe hijau and ikan kakap is my favourite. Try to avoid buying padang in garuda sharp at lunch break for take away. You will have to wait for sometime till the waitresses come to your number. Any how, take away more cheaper than having meal in the resto.

“Overrated and overcharged”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

I am a nasi Padang lover and hence is particular about the taste of the dishes.

Personally I feel this place is overrated. I am not sure why people overly hyped about it. The taste was ok but not until 5 stars. To add insult to injury, it is way over priced!


You can easily find better food with very reasonable food in Medan. Go else where!

Overall, not recommended.
