When in Medan the Garuda restaurant is a signature place. The quality if the food is good and the place is large both inside or outside. Their funny formula consists in serving on your table upon arrival almost everything they have on the menu. You will pick and eat the things that appeal to you, and consequently pay for these...

There are several branches of Garuda Restaurant in Medan and all serve equally delicious meal. This has always been my favorite restaurant. The curry is tasty. What I love most is the Rendang Beef. Though it looks black but a bite of it will make you love it forever. But if you are not a fan of spicy food, this... More

This restaurant serves good padang food. I like the fried chicken, ayam pop, ikan gulai and ayam gulai. The gulai is very nice and tasty. However, as with all padang food restaurant, pls go early for lunch. Unless the restaurant change their dishes in the faternoon, pls be care when go for dinner. This is for hygiene reason.

Flavorful, authentic and priced right. Sometimes a little too much oil in the goat curry but otherwise a good place to eat in or takeout. Spacious seating areas with non-smoking ac area.

I have been many times to many different outlets, it is a franchise I think. The food varies a little from one outlet to another but still with the same "Padang style". Service is very good to excellent but fairly expensive although always leave happy Drinks and juices in particular are excellent.

I had been twice enjoying meals in this restaurant. Firstly I came with my family. The service was good. Secondly through groups from our company, it was so different atmosphere. For this time, the fried chicken portion was so poor, very very small.

Very good food. A different slant on the Warung standard buffet. They bring all the food to you, so you have perhaps a dozen plates of food on your table. Whatever you eat, you pay for. I am not sure if a taste counts or not. More expensive that the standard Warungs around - maybe 50% more. However, the standard... More
