Bad service and poor value
Chanced upon this restaurant in Medan city center as we had Garuda restaurant in Singapore and thought give it a try. However, it's horrible and does not feel like you are in a restaurant. We asked for a menu and waitress said that they don't have one. To order nasi Padang you have to go to the shop front and point to them what u like. No one in the restaurant could speak English, even simple words could not understand. I guess they only cater to local crowds. When the food arrive, only the rice tasted warm, the rest of the dishes were cold even though we were probably the first customer there at 10am. The curry chicken were very small pieces (most medan chicken are small as it's the kampung type and not mass farm bred), so even though the price is not high, you have to order more if you want a reasonable fill. Overall, best to avoid!

Old Malay style - Beware it might get too pricey
This is the place if you wanted to dine and experie authentic Malay food in the old authentic Malay style. There's no menu with price so it's wise to ask the price in advance. The old Malay style restaurant would set the table with all the food they have cooked, they charged what ever food you touched. So it is wise to asked the waiter to bring back the food you won't eat. So you won't end up with bill you can't afford. As the taste it was OK. It was the dining experience of authenticity Malay which make this restaurant unique.
