This restaurant was quite a shock, we had 4 dishes, only one of them with a little bit of meat and some rice and paid 200Tausend. The food was quite nice and the service friendly, but for the quality of food we are used to pay around 80 Tausand at the most. Very disappointing experience

This is one of the local food with delicious taste.. but must becareful it's spicy, so must ask for non spicy food. But if you wanna try then try eat with fried chicken and ask foe chilli. One pack for rice and chicken is around $2

I go to Medan for many times but I haven't tried this famous restaurant. Everyone said that the Rendang is unforgettable and YES. not only the beef Rendang but also the chicken Rendang.

At least half a dozen. Maybe a dozen or more. Some are better, some or worse. I reviewed earlier this year the one on Jalan Palang Merah, had a good experience, and gave it a 4. Somehow that Tripadvisor review ended up with this Garuda Restaurant, which is on Jalan Gajah Mada. I recently had a bad experience at this... More

We went to restaurant garuda due to its decent TripAdvisor ratings and were heavily disappointed. Food was below average tastewise and the location wasn't pleasant either. That would have made 2-3 stars. But what really pissed us off was our bill at the end where things showed up that we didn't order and everything was calculated twice even though we... More

It is comforting to know that every city as a Garuda Padang and the flavours are always consistently good and delicious! No problems for me to bring my customers for a meal. Fail safe.

One of the best places to have padang food in Medan. Clean, good service and plenty of variety of padang dishes. My favorite is their rendang.. dry and dark as it is supposed to be.
