“A delicious bit of history near Tjong A Fie Mansion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

A very short walk down the road from Tjong A Fie, this place is great for a cold drink, a very pretty though fat looking cake or lunch. All is in the original style, dark panelled with lots of sepia photos of this place's past. It's also a meeting place for young lovers (or would-be) and parents reliving their romantic past. A must.

“Relaxed Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

Spent a fair amount of time here mainly as it was directly opposite our hotel. The food was good and a decent variety, very friendly service and the beer was always ice cold. Well worth a visit.

“A must visit for visitors to Medan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

Perhaps not one to be listed for the best food contenders in Medan yet it has varieties that will satisfy your curiosity of Medan culinaries. I almost always go for the Chicken Steak and the cakes are to die for. Definitely worth a try but don't expect something overly fancy or delicious. You go for the atmosphere and for the feel =)

Recommended to all travellers.

“Nothing to shout about”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

After reading rave reviews about this restaurant, we decided to pay a visit with high expectations. We ordered the famous chicken steak, egg soup and the famous mocca tart. I was utterly disappointed with the thin piece of chicken and its taste. The taste wasn't that bad but it was way below my expectations. Patrons have to go to the next building to order cakes. I ordered the mocca tart but I reckon they brought me the wrong cake as it tasted just like any ordinary cake I can find off the street! If it really was the mocca tart then I would suggest to give it a miss.
