The restaurant Omlandia of Hotel Deli River serves the finest cuisines at friendly prices. The restaurant and the surrounding cottages are designed and built in traditional Batak Simalungun architecture with a colonial flavour. The name “Omlandia” derives from the student society “Omlandia”, established in 1837 in Groningen, the Netherlands. “Omlandia” refers to the countryside around a town, in this case the thousand years old Dutch city of Groningen. The student society chose that name because its members, students at Groningen University, originated from the surrounding province of Groningen.
