“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

Close to the Westin Hotel ( just over the road) Avery busy on a Wednesday evening, no booking but were accommodated very quickly.
At first thought it might be a bit of a food factory, however, very attentive service, good food including my Aussie fillet steak which was delicious.
Side orders took the $ up so not a cheap feed by any measure however great atmosphere ,

Nice little touch at the end with complimentary schnapps all round .
Good place to do business!
Would return

“The Best Steaks but at a premium price .”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

Had the 700g fillet with fries and gratin potatos side salad and a 300g cubed kabab style meat thing , starters were heavy and lacking choice and a picture of food on menu would be great help , descriptions not very good , the 300g kabab was average and at 1300baht abit heavy , the fillet steak was absolutely fantastic , not one gram of fat and cooked to perfection, I forgave the poor starters after this steak , it was the best steak I've ever tasted , total bill with wine and beer was 5850 baht about £125

“Excellent food but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

We decided to have a meal here as it is just down the road from our hotel. The decor is great but lighting is lacking in places and I am sure some people would struggle to read the menu. Also the place was very busy which is always a good sign. The menu was good but we found it expensive for Bangkok as all the sides and sauces were extra and considering the mains were not particularly cheap to start with this definately bumped the price up.

The owner was very visible and approachable and spent the evening going round tables offering free vodka shots to customers (caramel flavour - very nice!)

Despite the cost it was a great meal, the service was also extremely good as were the staff. Not sure we would go again because of price but it would be a good place to go to entertain for business and put it on the company credit card!

“For a steak, best place in BKK.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

For a steak, best place in BKK. Excellent!!! We enjoyed the experience and we will be back!!! It is not a highclass place, rather a steakhouse with a taste of Argentine...

“Dany's gang”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Just returned from a trip to Bangkok and a wonderful meal at El Gaucho. As previously, the food was divine, but what got our attention this time was the service. The front man, Ivan, formerly of El Gaucho in Viet Nam, was as pleasant as always and helpful to the nth degree. Sitting outside with a pre-dinner drink, we couldn't get over the attention to detail that our server, Victor, provided. Meticulous, understated and as friendly as could be. In speaking to the Owner, Dany, he said that in-service and customer relations make up a serious portion of the professional staff that his staff undergo. It shows.

Upstairs for our meal, we had the same waiter, Thomas, from a visit 3 months ago. He knew our names (that could be the reservation book at work), but he recalled how my wife preferred her steak, how she needed to tweek the "doneness " last time and what wine we had enjoyed last time.

I realize that all this could be in a data base somewhere "in house", but with the crowds they were working and the buzz that night, I can't see how doing a "diner review" would be possible. He's just a phenomenal waiter, serious about our preferences, helpful with suggestions and a real pleasure to assist at the table.

Kudo's to the gang at El Gauchos. These folks go out of their way to ensure a wonderful experience and it's this kind of service (along with another superb steak) that will keep us coming back. Highly recommend it when you get to Bangkok.
