Haute cuisine

The chef here really knows how to cook. The dishes have a delicate and authentic taste! Try the Soto ayam herbal and the traditional dishes, and let you guide from the waiter, because otherwise you might miss something spectacular!

The best vegan food in Sumatra

The owner/chef is SO incredible! He came to our table and was so helpful with the menu. He trained at culinary school in Malaysia and used to develop private vegan menus for guests at the luxury Shangri-La hotels! All the food at this restaurant is house made with fresh ingredients (no canned food and no frozen ingredients.) The mock meats are to die for too!

Pros: AMAZING house-made mock meat, Really excellent coffee and espresso, Such a cool owner/chef. He’s only 24!

Cons: Decor is really odd and ill fitting , Prices are relatively pricey for the area

Good food, but slow service

I like the noodles the most. Service is a tad slow, though. Most of the meals are vegan, except some that contain cheese.

Pros: Most of the foods are vegan

Cons: Service is slow

Very good food and customer service

We have eaten here twice now and both times we have been impressed with the customer service and our food. The waiter who served us recommended me a different dish twice and they were delicious. My partner had the vegan mac cheese the first time and loved it, then went with his recommendation the second time.

Prices I feel are competitive compared to other restaurants in the area and food quality is next to none hence why I have given a 5 star.

Additionally coffee and cake (brownie) are also very good.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , High quality food, Big Menu lots to choose from

Cons: None

Believe the hype: it really is that good

Ranked with the finest cuisine I've experienced in decades of food exploration. Egg-free, Allium-free elegant and creative cuisine in a relaxed setting, and at competitive prices, puts Voi in a class of its own. Owner is well informed in healthy food preparation and speaks English fluently, so can explain the menu and offer advice for special dietary needs. Some dishes have cheese, but vegan cheese available upon request.

My first night's meal was one of the weekend/holiday specials: a lovely rice colored by blue pea flower, circled by assorted local side-dishes (similar to the Bali rice shown in the photos) - a dazzling combo of tastes, textures, and colors.

Though I'm ordinarily no fan of sandwiches, the barbecued tempe burger piqued my curiosity enough for me to give it a try the next day. It turned out that this was no ordinary sandwich: with the first bite, I was ready to pass out from pleasure. The bread (baked in-house) combined lightness and a crunchy crust with heavenly taste. The tempe was grilled to a wonderful texture and topped with a unique sauce. With each bite the meal got more intriguing, more delicious.

Continuing to sample what I typically avoid, on the third night I tried two of the many mock meats on the menu: satay padang and one of Medan's signature dishes, rice with flavored barbecue pork ("char sio rice"). The char sio had a "fresh off the grill" flavor that far surpassed any I'd had in Hong Kong (where it's also popular). It was a mistake, however, to order this together with satay as both were flavorful but not quite complementary.

I'd planned a feast for my final night but had to abort when, on the way over, a car swiped me. Beware Medan's insane traffic!

Quite simply the best.

Wow! What a surprise. The menu is extensive and delicious. I only wish the guys at Voi moved to London. They are culinary geniuses, the food is a mix of cafe fare to fine dining and it is exquisite. Anytime I'm in SE Asia I'll be paying them a visit.

Best vegan food ever!

The food at Voi is simply amazing. I‘ve been struggling with finding good and varied vegan food while traveling for the past weeks, so this place was a real game changer! We ordered a selection of dishes as they offer different types of cuisines. They also have all kinds of mock meats and eggs! From seitan to tofu to tempeh. Everything was incredibly fresh and tasted insanely good. The portions are pretty big and for the size very cheap. Of course you pay more than on the street food stalls, however it is obviously well worth it. We had 1 appetizer, 2 mains, 2 sides and 2 fresh juices and paid 270.000, so not even 15€. Highly recommend this place to whoever finds themselves in Medan. If the food itself isn‘t already convincing enough, the staff will definitely make the whole experience a pleasure as they all speak very good English and are very generous, polite and friendly!

Excellent vegan lunch

We had lunch in this small café which actually specialises in vegan cakes. But they have an extensive menu as well and the food was exquisite. Especially the Bali rice was a wonderful combination of flavours.

It is worth seeking out this café for its lovely food. It is a little more expensive than the simple buffet style veg restaurants you find in Medan of course.

I ordered a pot of tea, which was also very nice, but rather overpriced I thought.
