The legendary curry place in town. The place is definitely famous among tourists and the locals. Tabona has been there for so many years and the place has become more and more spacious, also crowded over time. They provide the guests with non AC room...(outdoor) and AC room (indoor). I definitely opt for the latter. The type of curry Tabona has is more into 'light' curry instead of the rich and thick one. It is fragrant, I quite like it, although I am more into something that has kickin' flavor. There are two options of meat you can choose which are beef or chicken, served with rice or vermicelli. If you are not a fan of curry, you can go for its Wonton Noodle which tastes quite okay. Tips for savouring the curry to the maximum experience : Have the 'EMPING' in your curry, it is a kind of chips, they usually put it on table. One thing you shouldn't miss when you are at Tabona,is its Kopi Susu (Traditional Coffee with Milk). That is totally my favourite and if you love coffee, try it and thank me later ! ;)More
Went here with family for lunch. Place was really busy and crowded during lunch time. Had to wait nearly 40 minutes for our lunch to arrive. Portion size was small and curry taste was just average and price was expensive.
Not worth for the wait...and money. Will not recommended.More
I've eaten at Tabona many times. I prefer the mie pangsit ayam. The curries are also excellent as are some of the other snacks on offer. It is a great local dining experience. If you are a visitor to Medan, a good choice for a..."local" experience, best experienced as a breakfast / early lunch type of place.More
This restaurant is quite crowded in lunch time. The dish offered only chicken curry and beef curry, served with steam rice or vermicelli. To be honest, this is the best local curry dish I ever enjoyed!
One of the best chicken curry we ever had. Rich and fresh curry.
Combining it with either vermicelli noodles, rice noodles or rice, just suits us so well.
Pricewise was fine, location also not that bad. It was quite packed when we were there, but...service was quick.
Everybody loves it :)More
Had lunch here with a couple of friends when I visited the city. I was told that it is one of the popular eateries in Medan. Indeed the place is crowded during lunch time. I had chicken curry beehoon. For me it tasted just ok,...maybe I'm just not into curry. But one thing for sure, the curry is not very thick, which is good.More
