We ordered 4 beer and 3 juice/tea plus food for everyone. 2 plate foods arrived after 15 minutes followed by tea and juice but nothing else, no beer at all. We asked more time different staff about our drink but had to wait 20 minutes for 4 beers!!! The guy who takes our order was busy with big screen TV, other staff, 2 women in green and red clothes just standing there do nothing.
Second round beer arrived after 8 minutes what is still slow for me because the restaurant was not busy at all but that is not a major problem.
Food (pork steak) was chewy but nice big portion.
On the bill extra beer tower!
I can not recomend this place mostly because of the poor service for a high price

It looks like the owner/chef or both have a halfhearted action for this German place,the place is nice,but lacking the soul of a lively restaurant, food is ok,but could be better,still a nice spot if you long for schweinehaxe and some German sausages

I am coming to this restaurant almost every time i come to Medan, i'd prefer to come here during the day time because it is not so busy and they have some promotion also for the weekdays, smart restaurant, i actually went last night, good service, good food...
I love their fresh draught beer and the pork sausages...
Unlike the most restaurants, owner and manager are very nice, polite, you could just sit outside, read your book quitely accompanied by their fresh brewed coffee....

Since over one year I have been a regular guest at Roland’s German Resto, a real German restaurant. I really enjoyed that excellent food, value for money and a true German cuisine – and even improving more and more up to now. E.g. this legendary huge portion of German Shnitzel is absolutely impressive. Unfortunately a decent German beer (Pils) is not available (I am not fancy with that offered German “Weizenbier”), however, it seems that Indonesian governmental regulations are too difficult for allowing the import of regular German beer.
