Few restaurants and terraces with Food and drinks ( no alchol ) near bussy street. Try do be modern as the youngsters visiting those places. Nothing special.

I came here for dimsum and kwee tiaw in Jala-Jala Resto. The dimsum is served with average taste. It also the same with the kwee tiaw. Nothing special.

Right in the heart of Medan city you'll find this a perfect spot for jogging and daily exercises. I am travelling monthly to Medan and selected Aryaduta as my favorite hotel, closest to Merdeka. Stay fit, keep healthy!

This is one of the famous place in Medan . It is located in the center of Medan city . There are many people who spend their time here to hang out, lunch or dinner, listen and watch the live music or just using free wi-fi.

This is a quaint open area with restaurants and a Starbucks. I highly recommend the Indonesian dim sum at Nelayan. I didn't try the other restaurants, but they all look great. I hear the place is very busy at night, although I was only there for lunch.
