Garuda Padang Cuisine is located at Orchard Central and serves Indonesian Food. Last order: 09:30pm
Garuda, part of the Tung Lok Group is not exactly like its Tung Lok counterparts, in fact its absolutely different. Unlike most other Tung Lok restaurants which serve fancy chinese cuisine, Garuda serves authentic Indonesian comfort food. I would recommend their rendang sapi or beef rendang, which is authentic and served with their delicious aromatic gravy and their fragrant Ayam Goreng Garuda or Fried Chicken with Blue Ginger Floss. However, for simple comfort food, I would have to say their prices are a bit to expensive, a similarity that they share with most other Tung Lok restaurants. As an alternative you could order their eat-all-you-can buffet which are not as highly priced though you need to have a minimum of 4 people.
I am rather appalled by the services at Garuda Padang Cuisine at Orchard Central. I entered the restaurant with my friend during non-peak hours where there was only less than 10 people dining there. I entered and waited to be seated but no staffs approach us at all so we settled ourselves and went over the to cashier area to try to order some food. The staff at the cashier ignored us until we asked them can we order. One of the staff said yes and he came out to take orders from a family who came in later and settle them down. We let that passed as the family got a kid. So after the staff took their orders and come to take ours, we requested for the seat by the window. The staff told us the table was reserved at 7.30 which means there is 2 hours for us to finish our food before the next patron arrives. We told them we will take less than 2 hours and the staff was rather stubborn and insisted that we seated somewhere else. I was rather turn off by the overall service and attitude I simply walked out of the restaurant and went to the Japanese restaurant next door where my money was rather well spent with great food and greater services.
