I have been a couple of times at this steakhouse and have to say that it exceeded my expectations at every visit.
Situated in the shopping arcade on soi Diana this steakhouse in Swedish ownership and management is a serious challenge to established Western steak institutions. The exceptional food quality and impeccable cooking aside, the prices you pay here, although not cheap for Thai standards, would make any American or British steakhouse owner to weep a little.
Service is attentive, efficient and polite. You are greeted with a bowl of nachos accompanied by a piquant salsa dip while the friendly staff is happy to answer any queries you may have after reviewing their menu. Attire-wise it is rather a casual affair and you will be welcomed even in Boxershorts and a T-shirt, which is in harmony with the surrounding area buzzing with casually dressed Western and Chinese tourists.
On my first visit the waitress recommended the pepper steak, which turned out to be one of the best piece of fillet mignon I’ve tasted, not only because of its perfect cooking but also because of the olive-green, brandy flavoured peppercorn sauce in which it was presented.
The melt-in-the-mouth steak came with fried veg + potato gratin and tasted superbly. Its fantastic flavours were enhanced by the red wines on their menu. The Spanish Cabernet Sauvignon or Argentinean Malbec they recommend as house wines are both excellent pairings to their steaks.
The manager Mr Jens personally asks customers how they like the food and is quick to help should anyone have some unfulfilled or special wishes.
The beef is Australian sourced and cooked to perfection according to the customers’ preferences. Other worthwile steak specialties are the tournedo and the rib-eye steak, which comes with chips and a sauce of your choice (béarnaise, mushroom, peppercorn or red wine sauce).
The menu also features an eclectic mix of starters, pastas, fajitas and seafood, such as poached Pacific dory with shrimps in a white wine sauce, grilled or planked salmon steak on an oakwood plate or a popular Swedish west coast dish called “Spätta Oresund” – pan-fried whole plaice or dory in a breadcrumb coat, served with French fries, béarnaise sauce and shrimps. Oresund is alluding to the famous Baltic sea bridge linking Copenhagen (Denmark) with Malmö (Sweden).
Thai cuisine classics like green chicken curry, Gaeng pha (spicy jungle curry) or Larb Moo (marinated pork with mint and chilli) can also be found on the menu.
I also tasted the honey glazed ribs, the tender meat was simply falling of the bone and tasted great. I’ve also seen some giant beef skewers served to my table neighbours and heard the kebabs were awesome.
Given that potatoes in any form are quite calorific, I indulged in a dessert only once. It was simply ice cream – but in a creative “make-up” and presented on a bed of chopped exotic fruits.
To sum it up, a highly recommended restaurant that will leave you supremely satisfied !
