“Best Steakhouse in China”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

The steak and other courses were all pleasant surprises. I just couldn't believe I was in Suzhou. Our server Theresa made exceptional recommendations. The entire staff were very nice also. The ribeye and sirloin were cooked to perfection. The marbling on the ribeye was mouthwatering.

“Excellent dining, Interconti standard!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

What a geat place! The food is excellent, outstanding quality. The knife selection is a funny feature, never seen before. The little bucket with crunchy veggies and sauce with our aperitifs was fantastic! When you are on a low-carb diet you can eat here without feeling as if you have no choice what to pick. Given it is in Intercontinental Hotel, prices are high. But worth it. Only remark is that they close early, so if you want to enjoy a relaxed evening and not be rushed, come early.

“A welcome relief ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

When you tire of 3 times daily local foods, this place offers an option of Australian or US wagyu beef, and other western foods. The wine list is not the greatest, but has the expensive premium French if you can afford it, and a bunch at low end. Not a lot of options in midrange but we managed to find a couple of Tuscanies that were decent.

“Excellent steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

Maybe not the best steak I ever had but one of the best. Many of the tables are set that you can have some level of privacy, we were on the window for a view, though it was night and there was construction going on across the way. Large selection of hot and cold appetizer options, I tried the lobster bisque and my colleague the parma ham. The presentation was quite impressive. I chose a Filet Mignon. Interesting that you get a choice of knives for your steak, there is a story behind each one. Steak was properly cooked (medium) and may have been able to be cut with only a fork. Be advised its on the expensive side, personally for me it would be a choice either for a special occasion or entertaining business clients.
