I ate at Sala Sala. I found the food to be cheap and tasty. The Mia Goreng (seafood) was as good as most I have had in a street food style place. There are chains such as Pizza Hut in the strip, but there are enough local places to keep most people happy.

Medan doesn't have much to offer for tourists. There are really no attractions so the city created this place. Typical fast food, including a Pizza Hut, nothing worth wasting your time on.

Bright and garish of night but there are a few chain restaurants as well as The Golden Arches and Pizza Hut a few local franchises as well as hawker stands. Always has been neat and tidy when I have been there but I do not go often. Lots of local people go to the rear for a bit of exercise... More

Went to merdeka walk with friends to spent our night and grab some food. Decided to try the famous durian pancake in jala-jala restaurant. Merdeka walk was famous for a place to hang out.

Interesting concept of semi outdoor dining. Tried the famous Nelayan Restaurant. Had the dimsum there, not many choices but still nice to experience the Chinese culture influence

Lots of food being sold. Busy at night. The food was reasonable. But trying to cross the road at 6pm proved to be difficult as there are no traffic rules in Medan. Finally a traffic cop helped us walk across the street. Take a look at the pictures showing the traffic jam at Merdeka Walk.

Thank KC A
