- High class service - Variety of steaks and other mediterranean dishes (ordered the filet mignon) - A bit overpriced (expected more return of investment)

Great steak and really taste good. One of the best Steak house in China. Good environment and atmosphere. The chef is so kind to explain the various steak to us. The manager also recommended a very good wine. I am pleased with their warm services throughout the dinner. Great restaurant, 2 thumbs up

Overall the dinner was good and service was quite ok. We ordered the bouillabaisse which is not a bouillabaisse but a tomato soup with seafood. Also the cod fritters were good but not made Spanish style with salted bacalhau. Then we had the Spanish steamed cod with chorizo and white beans. Also a steak which was excellent. The chorizo was...

Never, never disappoint with the steak, grilled to the way you like it. Consider a little pricy but you get the service and attention with your meal. Once a month trip for me ....

We had a wonderful steak dinner. All the food tasted great and the service was pretty good. The girl at the entrance who was too busy on the phone to attend to us and so we walked past her and got looked after by more professional staff inside the restaurant. The steak and sides were excellent and the flower pot... More

Ravi serves great Wagyu steak, served on wooden plater. The staff brought us a box with different knifes, each knife had it's own story. Desert was prepared on our table with the cook showing his skills. Great experience.

Went after I heard a lot of friends say it is best for steak in town. Had to wait very long, even though the place was not fully occupied and the seats we got were not really nice, but offered a chance to watch the staff, which for this place and what it is trying to be is not professional...

I enjoyed every course! From the Nicoise salad to the lobster bisque. The seared scallops to the perfectly cooked sirloin steak and a wonderful piece of cheesecake with blueberry topping. It was all cooked perfectly, it was all delicious! I will return again and again!

Visited with 10 people. Amazing starters and steaks. Service a bit hap hazard with long delays and many miscommunications. Expect to pay $100 for a steak and a waitress that speaks limited English. It won't matter.
