Garuda, established in 1976, is the most successful and one of the largest Padang Cuisine restaurant chains in Indonesia. Today, in a partnership with TungLok Group, Garuda in Singapore is the only franchised Padang Cuisine restaurant outside Indonesia, offering nothing but the most authentic fare at three locations (Orchard Central, VivoCity and Far East Square). Join the many guests, dignitaries and royalties who have visited us and are highly impressed with the real, distinct taste of high quality Padang Cuisine (also called Minangkabau cuisine) by Garuda amidst modern chic interiors.
Garuda’s origins began in 1975, a year before its first restaurant opened. A successful young businessman from Medan, Haji Bachtar saw all his dreams crumble as his family’s textile plant was razed to the ground by a raging fire, his business as ash in the wind. Rebuilding it would have been too difficult, too painstaking. But for young Haji Bachtar, who was himself of Minangkabau descent, that end merely signified a new beginning. — Garuda Padang
We also had Beef Rendang (Rendang Daging Sapi), Squid Sambal (Sambal Cumi Cumi) and Es Chendol
