Rumah Makan Lamun Ombak @ Padang, West Sumatra

This is a very famous restaurant in Padang, West Sumatra. In fact, they have a number of outlets and this is the smallest one in Padang. We came to this outlet due to its closer proximity to the airport as we would be heading back to the airport from here.

Rumah Makan Lamu Ombak, Padang
I have seen that Malaysian are pretty crazy over this restaurant and many of them specifically request to have their meals here while in Padang. This restaurant primarily serves Minangkabau Food and the food quality is pretty good and I an waiting to taste it myself.

Our Dishes Just Arrived
Here as you can see, they bring all the dishes that are available in the restaurant for you. You then have an option to choose the dishes that you would like to have and you would be charged according to the dishes that you consume. For example, if it was like fried chicken, a plate would have two pieces and you have the choice to only take one and you would be charged based on that. However, if it was a vegetable or gravy, then the moment you take even a bit from it, you would be charged for that plate and this is the Minangkabau concept. However, in comparison to Malaysia, food here is so much cheaper.

Lunch Starts

On the whole, the food at this restaurant is very good. The choices are plenty and the taste is up to its mark. However, I only have one comment. Hygiene is quite poor here and if possible, don't ever go near the kitchen as that would frighten you. Despite that, none of us got sick anyway by eating here and it is a great restaurant to dine in when you are in Padang, Indonesia.

Address: No. 99, Jalan Khatib Sulaiman,
              Padang, West Sumatra, Indonesia.

Opening Hours: 0800 - 2230 Daily
