“A Jakarta feel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

I have waited for years for Medan to have a place like District 10. Finally there is a modern setting for leasure or business dinner in hip environment.
The food is eclectic and reasonably priced and they even serve wine! If one wouldn't know he is in Medan he would easily imagine himself to be in Jakarta or Seminyak, Bali. Definitely a nice add-on to Medan's restaurant map.
It is a pity, though, that many times the music is way too loud and the DJ's confuse this rather laid-back, chill out place for a party place. And the best thing is that no one can talk anymore and no one even dances to the music. Strange stuff!
All in all very recommendable. Just finish your important talk before 9 pm or else you have to turn to sign language.

“One of the better places to eat in Medan”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

Came upon District 10 by chance. It is one of a group of restaurants in an office tower slightly out of the main area of Medan.
The first surprise was the wine list. Not cheap, as one would expect in Indonesia, but some of the wines were exceptional (from past experience) and if I was looking to take that special person somewhere in Medan, then for this reason alone, District 10 would be at the top of my list.
The service was excellent.
The food, very good, so much so that we visited twice in a week.
Great coffee too.
One small downside was that we had to request the music to be turned down as it was impossible to talk over the volume. This was done without further discussion....but be prepared to ask if it is annoying.
Another BIG plus is that smoking is only permitted outside.
This is a great place for Medan and if you are visiting, or a local, giev it a try. I doubt that you'll be disappointed.
