I visit this restaurant every time I come to Saigon. It never disappoints. Excellent steaks a fantastic wine list and very personal high quality service. It is expensive but worth it. I wish they had a loyalty program.

There are two very accessible places where you can find 100% grass-fed beef: Park Hyatt, and El Gaucho. They are spitting distance from each other, but pricing is almost 40% off at El Gaucho compared to Park Hyatt.

This buzzing joint has a good selection of cuts, whether you are into more healthy grass-fed choices or more delicious grain-fed options. The upstairs is very lively and can actually get quite loud, while for a quiet steak dinner the ground floor bar and small table seating is a good option.

The wine selection is respectable although the by-the-glass options are a bit limited.

The owner family seems born for f&b as they are very welcoming and schmoozy in a nice way.

Another paleo-friendly menu item worth mentioning is the chicken liver salad.

One suggestion that would make a good experience truly excellent is if they can find a way to char their steaks, Chicago style. As of right now the steaks come out a bit light colored, without the crisp sear and external caramelization that can really elevate the flavor of the meat.

Overall, a good steak in a good atmosphere with friendly service.

You will NOT eat a better steak ANYWHERE than here... Simple as that.
I have been fortunate enough to travel all around the world and I have visited countless steakhouses in most of the world's great cities... But this place beats them all... From the USA to Australia to London to Paris and every other place you can think of.... This was the BEST steak I've had to date.
We had the Aus Black Angus... Perfectly cooked and just melted.
We had a bottle of nice wine, two steaks and some sides... Cost was about $90 USD all in... The best value for money I've ever had in a restaurant... 90 bucks for a life time memory meal for two !!
At the end, the owner came over, chatted pleasantries and offered a Vodka Caramel shot... Sounds strange but it too was delicious.
If you are lucky enough to be in HCMC... Go here... If you don't you'll miss out... Simple as that :-)

We had a lovely early dinner there with outdoor seats looking right at the lake, it was kind of romantic. The steak was juicy and yummy. The staff was really helpful by showing us their different steak before cooking it. the manager even gave us free shot at the end, it was lovely
