“Sumptuous steak in Bangkok”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

If you feel like you need a break from the delicious Thai cuisine then a trip to El Gaucho is very worthwhile as it serves some delicious steaks. It's certainly not the cheapest but you will eat well, we've just paid THB7500 (£145) for a 3 course meal for 2 with drinks and by local local standards it's expensive but it's also very satisfying. The staff are welcoming and friendly as is normal here and I would not hesitate to return

“Excellent Steakhouse in Bangkok”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

Definitely one of the best steak places in Bangkok with excellent steaks and great service. The manager even came by to offer a homemade shot for each of us. A bit expensive but definitely worth it. Highly recommend this place of you like steak.

“Love the steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

This place has great steaks. The mashed potato is very nice and the atmosphere is cozy. Love the outdoor setting and the separate bar area is nice to have a drink while your waiting for your meal. If your ever in Bangkok your must go here. Also a good place to take the family.

“Amazing food & hospitality "Kudos"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

Just last month tried out the food at El Gaucho, Sukhumvit, Bangkok, with a foodie friend of mine.
I got wet in rain on the way to the restaurant. The staffs there had tried their level best that I could get dry and could enjoy my evening. They found us a place where they even could turn off the airconditioning and make us sit in a warm place. We had some starters and ordered lamb rack and prime rib steak for main course. All the food went good with some malbec wine. The lamb was too good as well as the prime rib. We had asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes as side dishes. The asparagus were perfectly done. The best I liked was the roasted garlic which came with bread and butter. That's something great for a garlic lover. Finally after the main dishes they offered complimentary shots of caramel vodka, which was nice. A must go and try hub. Highly recommended!

“Magnificent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

I have been here before for a business meal and it was good. But this time this place was beyond exceptional, beyond excellent, just off the charts. Upon entering the restaurant we were politely guided to our seats and offered the menus. The waitress and waiters were always present to assist but not to bother you. (we have been to places where they stand and watch you eat) Our meals came out in good time and the food was perfect. I ordered steak and my wife ordered salmon.
The steak was tender and tasteful and the salmon was good until my wife got to the center - it was uncooked. We asked the waiter to cook the remainder of the salmon. Apologies were so many and sincere and they did above and beyond what could be expected. They gave her a complete new meal and everything was perfect. She checked the center of the salmon and it was cooked. This is a rare mistake but what they did to rectify it was amazing. We were too full to try the deserts but we will the next time. We will return.
