We went to restaurant garuda due to its decent TripAdvisor ratings and were heavily disappointed. Food was below average tastewise and the location wasn't pleasant either. That would have made 2-3 stars. But what really pissed us off was our bill at the end where things showed up that we didn't order and everything was calculated twice even though we... More

It is comforting to know that every city as a Garuda Padang and the flavours are always consistently good and delicious! No problems for me to bring my customers for a meal. Fail safe.

One of the best places to have padang food in Medan. Clean, good service and plenty of variety of padang dishes. My favorite is their rendang.. dry and dark as it is supposed to be.

No matter the food is for dine in or take away it still taste great. Their red and green chili is spicy to the max. The food is big as well. The rice is wrap with banana leaf. They have lots of variety food but majority is spicy.

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.

Thank Aik Jin H
