The food is really nice. Its an authentic german's food. But i found that there is too many mosquitos at night and they don't put any mosquitoes repellent either. It makes me uncomfortable to sit longer. The decorations and interior of the restaurant is also looks old. I think they need to revamped the looks but overall will recommend this... More

It's a passable place to go out to eat. The facilities are well maintained and the staff professional and courteous. The best item on the menu is the roast chicken but you should order ahead because it takes almost an hour to prepare. The best item is to buy a loaf of their bread to take home. Best bread in...

I brought a group of 8 golfers to Medan. After arrival at the airport, we had our first game at Royal Sumatra Golf Course, then headed to Rolands for the Welcome Dinner. The place is quite large but has many cosy corners. Our group settled down at the main hall and soon the food arrived. This is a German restaurant... More

Just had dinner and drinks with a colleague at Roland's German Restaurant here in Medan. Wow what a fantastic place - I have found that western style eating places are few here but this place was a shining light to tide over a very busy week. The atmosphere was tremendous, the choice and quality of food was excellent and the... More

"Lovely and nice restaurant with Good Food". That's what My opinion for my first impression when i step into the restaurant. The place is a little bit far from the city and not too much car parking lot. There's a live music on weekend. The platter is my most favorite one. Recommended !! 💕 After all, this place is suitable... More

Living in Indonesia, I sometimes miss non-indonesian food and a cold beer in a nice outdoor place. So, when we passed Roland a few months ago I promised myself to check it out the next time in Medan. From the moment we stepped in I liked it and the outdoor Beergarden came as a very pleasant surprise. We came on... More

Came here by chance as a friend told me there is beer and live music. The place is a bit surreal if we think about Medan and its whereabouts: the waitresses are dressed in german style and the place reminds me of a german biergarten, the menu is written in German. Nevertheless, is's an Island of good vibes. It was... More

if you love to chat with friends while having beer, Roland's is one of the best place..but, the food portion getting smaller and smaller..I often order french fries to go with our beer, but it came really really small.. it is not even a handful of fries...a GERMAN restaurant should give the right portion of western food...quality and quantity matters!
