Bar beverages and service are excellent however I find the food to be disappointing. I have been here on several occasions over the past 5 years hoping that this time it would have improved but alas no. Most occasions I order steak poorly stored poorly cooked I have often returned it untouched. On one occasion they had a buffet with... More

If you want I nice place to drink or a great place to eat this is the place. Great staff and great ambience then if you want it a bit more for the younger people you can always go out the back to shoot

Well we celebrated our first valentines here yrs ago. We have been back several times over the past 4yrs and the restaurant although very expensive was very good. Traders obviously thinks they can now sell worse food (and quantity) than Mcdonalds and charge western prices. I would advise you not to eat here as they are just stealing your money... More

Had lunch at Traders on our second day. Arrived a bit late but service was good albeit a bit slow. Go for the western dishes as they tasted good. The tempura for the Japanese dishes were below par. can skip. They offer a mini buffet - coffee, tea, fruits, soup, etc, that is open till 3pm. Good value for money!

An expat magnet , especially on Friday and Sat nite the food selection is both asian and western , try the Hang Seng Fried rice . After a good meal , there is live band entertainment on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Shoot which is just behind Traders.

After a few days in Medan and my fill of Indonesian food, I just needed a good western meal. My Medan friend suggested we go to The Traders for a good meal. The evening was exceptional with good food, great ambience, attentive service and a good Batak band. If you have to business entertainment to do, I strongly recommend this... More
