“Quite expensive but best steak in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

During our trip to Ho chi minh city, we stayed in IBIS Saigon, which is very near to this restaurant. After my friend told about steak which is famous here. We came here and tried Rib eye steak. I liked a lot and it was awesome taste with mushroom sauce. Also we had mashed pototoes, and garlic breads.
Overall it was bit expensive, but for the taste, it definitely worth it.

“Best Steak In Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Fantastic steakhouse, food is consistently delicious. Staff are friendly and helpful. The caramel vodka is a nice touch. My favourite steakhouse in town however it is very pricey compared to similar restaurants in Saigon.

“Great steaks and grill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

This steak in this restaurant is superb! Try the mixed grill that comes with beef fillet, chicken, spicy sausage, pork ribs. The portion is quite sizeable and good value.

Have it with the Malbec red wine .

Waiters were friendly and helpful. They even managed to locate a sports bar next door to watch my soccer match.

“Delicious Ribeye”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

It does what it says on the tin. Its s realky good steakhouse. Succulent and really well cooked Ribeye, good fries and a yummy Bernaise sauce. Just a little expensive for Saigon, but I suppose costs are rising in all of HCMC. Overall the food is good. You wont be disappointed if a decent steak is what you are after. Just expect to pay a bit for it.

“Steaks good - Chicken so-so”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

As might have been expected of a steak house, the steak was excellent - the chicken dish was so-so (no wonder the waiter looked down his nose when I ordered it). The choice and quality of steaks probably one of the best in Saigon, although you do pay for the pleasure. That being said because nothing is included in the price of the meat you do only get what you pay for.

Extensive wine menu adds to the great experience.
