The things that I loved most is only the cakes. Rest of it is just so so. The cakes are baked with an old charcoal oven, therefore it has an authentic smell and taste. It's not difficult to reach, about 10 minutes walk from Lapangan Merdeka.

If you miss nostalgic food, just come to Tip Top Restaurant. I like the nasi goreng and the ice cream. So yummy. They have great atmosphere for family, couple or/and friends.

Services are good, food taste at average , nothing special but it became legend , most of the people come just for a flash back memory and missed the food on childhood time. The place with live music is quite convenient to relax

I have patronized this restaurant several times. It is famous and people in Medan, North Sumatera-Indonesia surely know where this place is located. It serves middle up class. Despite the good name, its food and beverages are just average. Coming here for lunch might no be a good option as the location is the heart of the city. It is... More

The taste just so-so though the waiter and waitress are all polite and helpful. Make sure you sit at the terrace so... More

Unfortunately even recommended in lonely planet the food was avarage. You will get better food in the shopping malls in the city. The only good thing was the ice cream.

We stayed at Medan for 3 nights and we went to tip top each day! Our favorites are bitterbalen, chicken sauce and their ice cream (fruit ice cream, nougat and java). I must say almost everything we order taste wonderful. And just beside the restaurant there is tip top bakery shop with varieties of cake. I've seen locals coming over... More
