This establishment is famous for their black rendang which you can buy in kilograms to take home. And they ran out of it in basically no time. I was there at around noon and all we get was two small pieces of rendang which the still had. The meat is tender and the spices is not overpowering. I do understand... More

Located near Bukittinggi clock tower, this is a typical Padang restaurant with authentic ingredients.

We were a bit unsure from the outside, but really glad we went in for dinner. You can have the dishes put in front of you, or just choose from a menu. Very canteen style surroundings so not a posh night out - just good authentic padang food and friendly staff. And cheap!

Rendang is the signature menu of this restaurant. You can feel the authentic taste of Minang cuisine that taste a little bit spicy. You should try the fried noodle and fried rice that served by this restaurant

Delicious food, friendly staff, and good value, with a few freebies thrown in as well. Padang food is very flavoursome, not too spicy, and this apparently is one of the best places to eat it in Bukittinggi. Don't do what I did and greedily order everything you fancy from the menu - the dishes aren't huge but they're pretty filling!

Typical padang food, quite tasty although the rendang is tough enough to hurt your teeth. Staff speak enough English to tell you how things work.

We scurried out of Simpang Raya to come to this restaurant. Bright lights and a clean-looking interior attracted us to come in and sample their food. My wife ordered white rice, gulai chicked, bargedel (potato patties), the kids ordered 2 x mee rebus and 1x gado-gado. The mee rebus is different that what you get in Singapore and Malaysia, the...
