“Best meal in HCM!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

After several days of crap local food, this is the best meal we had in HCM! Went to the outlet in district 1, classy restaurant with great service. We ordered 2 ribeyes and a filet, all 3 steaks were cooked to perfection. The sides were excellent - potato gratin, cream spinach and sauteed mushrooms. The only disappointment was the ceasar salad with prawn. Can't remember name of the dessert, apple something which was really very very very good!

Total cost came up to 3.4m dong which is not cheap for HCM's standard, but this is great food at half the price of what we get in Singapore. So treat yourself to this great juicy steaks if you are in HCM! :)

“Very Good Steaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Had a very good steak last night. 250grams is more than enough for most people. I went with the black angus ribeye and it was cooked a nice medium rare.

Baked potato and macaroni were good as well.

Price wise it's in line with high end American steak houses. Most of the crowd were expats.

My second time dining here, I'll definitely be back in the future

“Best steaks in Saigon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

This is a very popular restaurant in Saigon and deservedly so. The steaks are tender, cooked properly and have never failed to please. The sides are plentiful and tasty and the wine list extensive and reasonably priced. Can get very noisy when busy but that is the noise of people enjoying themselves. Highly recommended.
