A friend told me to come here. One of famous seafood restaurant in Medan, it was crowded. The price is CHEAP! which I like as a broke student. We ordered Udang Nestum (fried cereal prawn), Cumi Telur Asin (Fried coated squid with salted egg sauce),...and Kangkung Balacan (stir fried kangkung with Sambal Balacan). As a main course, udang nestum is very sweet and less butter (we should smell the butter from this dish) Hillarious! The salted egg sauce from the fried squid is sweet too, I was surprised hahaha. Too buttery. Kangkung balacan was okay. But anyway, it's cheap ❤️More

People flock to Wajir seafood daily because it is a good seafood restaurant with a reasonably priced dishes. The fish selection good and the shrimp is very fresh. It’s always packed and never disappoint.

It's a popular place for seafood and everything is halal here. The restaurant is always filled to the brim and it would spill outside to the tables and chairs by the roadside which would then turn into an alfresco dining place. It would be super-packed...on weekends but fear not as the large number of waiters & waitresses are all super efficient. There is no complaints about their service and the food is served in quite an amazing speed. The menu is brief and simple and their fish, clams and other seafood dishes are tastily cooked. To me, their only failure are the mud crabs which I feel are a little too small to enjoy. Other than that, the seafood dinner there was wonderful and also reasonably priced too. Worth a visit when in Medan.More

So many choices and it's tasty as well. The service crew is helpful and fast. Mid-range cost. If you looking for local food with choices than this is the place. Fully pack during weekend therefore have to come early.

I & my big family ate dinner here cause our rental car driver recommended this place to us. Once we arrived, the sight is overwhelming. The place is quite big, yet it is full with customers & staffs who moves speedily to take order &...serve the food. Luckily, we didn't have to wait long to get seated. We ordered a diverse menu of seafood & the food comes quite fast considering the number of customers who are being served. Furthermore, the price here is very economical.More

Wajir is a restaurant that serve seafood with affordable prices and fast service. So that when we come to the restaurant we will be welcomed by the waiter, to order the menu. When waiting, we will be offered a durian pie. The choice of seafood...is very diverse, ranging from fish, squid, fried shrimp, grilled or steam. The average price of fish starts from IDR 11k per ounce. Taste with good standards. The atmosphere is crowded, so we have to wait or seatse. The number of seats is around 400 pax. Payment can use Credit Cards. Parking is along the roadside in front of the restaurant, but it's a bit difficult to find it. Location from Medan Merdeka Square, around 2.5 kilometers.More

Below average at best. Was the smallest crab i had seen. Taste was nothing great. Really average taste and presentation. Would never go here again. Bad traffic to reach the rest as well. But staff were attentive. Can you imagine, my crab arrived even while...she was taking my order. Am wondering how that happened! No way is this the best. Lembur Kuring was wayyyy better!More

These serve some great seafood at affordable prices. Crab is their best. Eel is on the tough side. Their Avocado juice is good too.

This was clearly one of Medan’s most popular local seafood restaurants. It had a large indoor and huge outdoor seating area with at least 100 tables and was doing a brisk business with people waiting for free tables still as we left around 9pm. I...don‘t know if it was busier than usual on Fridays when we were there but despite the big crowds, we found the service quite good. They also went for a private purchase of Bintang for us and made an amazing freshly pressed Guava juice (without ice/sugar) for me. With all the different groups of all forms and no tourists, it was a fun place to soak up the atmosphere. We had two different grilled fish for about 65,000 each which were good but not as good as we had enjoyed in other places.More

Were there on a rainy day. Ordered black pepper crab, sweet and sour gurami fish, grilled gurami fish, salted squid and deepfried squid. Very tasty and portion is ok. Shop is not spacious and kind of old shop. Highly recommended for seafood lover.
