Having lived on and off in Thailand for 20 years the one thing you could never really find was a good steak. Fortunately, that has changed. While expensive the steak at El Gaucho is good, but you are going to pay for it. No one will ever mistake Bangkok for New York or Chicago, but seriously no one comes to... More

Me and my boyfriend had an amazing time at El Gaucho. He went for a steak and I had the best burger I have ever had. We enjoyed a beautiful bottle of Malbec and the service was 10 out of 10. Lovely staff, lovely atmosphere and surroundings. Fabulous place

Let's start with the only negative... The price, especially for Thailand the prices are high. ( 20.000 baht for dinner with 7 people). however.... the food was amazing, great wines and excellent service. I can genuinely recommend the steak (Angus beef), just fabulous. We will definitely go back!

Came here on a whim to grab a quick bite. Ordered the 350gram filet. Asked for it "Medium". This steak came out. After calling out the waitress, she insisted that this was in fact cooked correctly and condescendingly talked to me as if I had no idea what I was talking about. I've traveled all over and you tell me.... More

Two burgers for thb1500++ i.e. thb1765 (usd50 or eur46). Probably one of the most expensive places in Bangkok. For this Western dowtown price, you should expect over the top quality in every aspect... ... but it is no longer true. Medium cooked burgers were pretty dry and not so tasty in the end. Fries tasted fish... Argentinian is only in... More

It is not cheap to eat here compared to many places in BKK but have always had very good quality steak and the service has always been friendly or attentive. I pass through Bangkok a lot after trips to the far ends of Asia and its always a special treat to have some "comfort food" here on my way home.

The prise is incredibbly high. The worst quality / price i have seen for a long time. Steak was good but no more, it cannot justify 3000baths for one Steak. On top of the menu, they charge 17% for service.

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighborhood Profile
Sukhumvit
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
