“Good alternative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Yes indeed, if you do want some meat that's not in delightful chilli peppers then this is a good alternative. Nice decor, good service, well situated with outdoor seating to watch the crowds. Muchroom empanada was very good, well presented Filet with great chips and good bearnaise sauce and not a bad wine list.
A bit pricey compared to local places but good value on an international scale, worth a visit for a change!

“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We had dinner here Saturday night with some friends who live in Bangkok and are regular goers to this restaurant! Clearly you have to book ! It is located right opposite The Westin hotel and also right t the exit of Asok train station. The restaurant is your typical steak restaurant . I sampled the Beef which was drizzled with a creamy lemon sauce and it was yum........ For my main I had a 250gr Rib Eye ( Australian) you have a choice of US, Australian or what they call " Choice " meat. You then can have a sauce with it and also side orders of fries, salads etc. After you have finished the meal you have to ask for the Vodka on Saturday night it was Vodka mixed with Caramel OMG it was yum yum yum! The service is friendly and efficient. Would recommend for a group maybe not so much for your romantic dinner.

“A Very Good Steak in Bangkok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

If you're looking for a Thai experience...obviously this isn't it....but this IS a great place to find a good steak if you are seeking something other than Asian while in Bangkok. I had a very nice filet from the USA....and these haven't been easy to find here. The ambiance is fantastic....not too stuffy...but still elegant in its own right. My husband had an Australian rib-eye and thought it beat most other steaks we've tried in Bangkok. It's easy to split the sides. They really seem meant for 2. The portions here are very large. Wine list was impressive as well and service was generally very good.

“Great Steak which is what it's about!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

I've tried steak all around the world and whilst this isn't any better, it's always consistently good.
Service was superb and while probably slightly pricey for bangkok it was a great meal.
Outside eating watching the world go by a plus point.

“Surprising gem in the heart of Bangkok!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Our family of 4 adults and 2 kids went to Terminal 21 and chanced upon this steak house which is situtated right next to it. The atmostphere, service and steaks were excellent. We ordered the BBQ ribs and beef burger and they were very good too. Very nice place to have a meal when you get tired of green curry and mango sticky rice ; )
