“This restaurant is a "Must Try" in Medan.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

This restaurant offer you one of the best Traditional Batak Cuisine in Medan. The restaurant has a very nice setting. The owner is a couple, the wife is indonesian and the husband is a Korean.

The "Saksang" is the signature of the dishes in this restaurant. The barbeque Pork and the fried pork meat is one of the best in town.

One complaint was the portion is wayyy to small. Because it is so delicious. price is in the middle range. But overall it is a must try!

“Great cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

Their ribs steak is extraordinary! Juicy yet tender. Really indulge my tounge. Until this day I can still imagine that delicious ribs steak and kept wanting to go back there. And they give us fruit platers for free and also a gum to refresh our breath. The place is also cozy, i adore their garden and nice ambience.

“Crispy and tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

Love the pork! Crispy and tasty. The price is not the cheapest though. Desserts are served free of charge. All in all, recommended.

“The best grilled pork”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

The salad (with belachan) is very fresh and tasty and my favorite dish must be the grilled pork which are thinly sliced and grilled to perfection. Admittedly, I'm not too sure what is the name of other dishes that I'd sampled here as my Indonesian hosts would place order in Bahasa.

For those who are adventurous, do try the pig's blood (which I've never tried as I'm not into such type of food).

“best batak food without upsetting your stomach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

it is very rare to find batak food that is hygienic in Medan, let alone with a great atmosphere. i had heard that it is very famous among the locals in medan.i visited the restaurant with my family, and though some sauces is too spicy for my taste, the fried pork is really good. i recommend this restaurant for those who would like to taste authentic batak food without upsetting your stomach or your appetite. don't skip the ginger tea served for dessert.
ps: opt for outdoor seating
