The pork is excellent, the prices are cheap, and service is quick. However, don't expect a fancy setting, or non pork choices. Large run down space with no air con and open to the noisy street.

Visited here EVERYTIME I visited the city. If I don't mind my colesterol, I'd be here everyday.. It was just so crisp and tender. HUGE portion and at a very economic price. (500gr for less than USD 3) Consider the "babi merah" if you don't like intestines.

One of the finest Batak traditional food. You can by the grilled pork either by small plate or in KGs. Price are cheap considering the taste and the size of the serving. They provide delivery order to the hotel or Airport as well !!

This place didnt impressed me with the babi panggang ... but with the hospitality of its employee... i came when it was raining... the employee quickly grabbed an umbrella and wont let me go to my car without it. Great service from them.

This is one of the most famous non-halal restaurant in Medan. They served Delicious Karo's styled Grilled Pork, Soup, and other Karo Traditional menus in very affordable price. Good Food & Good Price... Yummmm

I could not say the food is bad, it is just a so-so, average. You wouldnt be disappointed about the taste if you not expect too much. They are quite popular in Medan and have some branches. If you want to taste bataknese traditional food, it worth to be tried.

It has the best BPK in town. BPK is a special roast pork from Karo, Medan. Eat while it's hot, with rice and the soup.
