Delicious food, reasonably priced, and with just the right amount of spiciness
The staff in the hotel in which my spouse and I stayed for two nights recommended Merdeka Walk as a place where we could find a variety of restaurants for lunch and dinner. It was about a ten minute walk for us. Having read the good reviews of the Nelayan Restaurant in Sun Plaza, we decided to give this Nelayan a try for lunch. I chose the Mie Goreng with chicken; my husband had the Mie Udon Goreng with chicken. Both dishes were delicious and very reasonably priced (about 9 USD for both of us)--and spiced with just the right amount of heat for the non-Asian palate. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. We were definitely happy that we had selected this place to eat, and would have eaten here again if we had had one more day in Medan.

Perhaps this restaurant should learn more how to serve their customer. I came for dinner. Sat on a table and got ignored by the waiters. They priority tables with more people. So I had to call them every now and then to ask for the menu. After that, I got to wait for another 30 minutes and again ask the waiter over and over again before finally someone came to take my order. And again they got me waiting like hell to get my food. Their reason? The restaurant was full with customers and they have less staffs to serve all the customers. I was very upset and had no mood to taste my food. It was not about the food. It was the hospitality. Perhaps because I was alone in the table? Then I might recommend whoever travel alone, don't even try to come here. If this app provide the worst rate then I will happily give it to this one.

Great location and very strategic. Located in the centre of Medan city and very easy to find. Overall taste, for dimsum no flavour. But the Crab soup was fine and also i love the durian pancake the most!
