Located beside masjid.Great price, great taste, varied menu, clean place.You can't park vehicle around this place, you must park further from this place but worth it if you want others meal expect fastfood and the price valuable.

Local Padang food was delicious. But they used a lot of recycle oil in fried food eg. chicken and tasted not so good. Large variety of food was displayed on our table and we pay only for food consumed.

This place is located right at the main square (the one with the clocktower). Popular with locals which is always a good sign. Probably one of the best places to try typical Padang cuisine - traditionally you are given a bunch of small plates with what's on offer on a particular day. You choose the ones you want and pay...

I'm not local from West Sumatra but I'm Indonesian and found some dishes here are unusual. But all are awesome. For you guys foreigner, all the dishes in the table are not for you to finish. You only pay for what you eat. Located on the main street with big parking space. So nothing to worry.

We ate here on a Saturday night around 8 pm, no problem to get a table. Some of the servers can speak English, but it doesn't really matter because you only need to order your drink, then the rest of the food arrives in small dishes and you eat what you want. The food tasted good, my favorites: daun singkong... More

I went twice to the restaurant opposite the clock tower; the best place to sit is by the window overlooking the tower and busy square. It is open at all hours and always full but the place is huge, the service rapid and the quality reliable. I had gadoh-gadoh, the must-try rendang sapi and a few vegetables, the best being... More

Most convenient place to try regional specialty Ampiang Dadiah, glutinous rice topped with local buffalo yoghurt and palm sugar. Delightful early breakfast menu at 7.30!
