“basic steak menu”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

very basic menu concentrating on steaks only in 2 weights. small salad and French fries are completing the dinner. beers and good wines available.
our steak came as ordered, medium rare.
so far the best steak we had in George town.
with RM 60 not the cheapest but ok.

“Exactly as it says on the tin.”

Steak and fries - actually, they had just started doing Salmon so I had that but all very good, with good wine menu.

“Simple but successful”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Only 2 things on the menu, small or large steak but they were amazing! The garlic topping was divine and the small winelist a treat too.

“What you want”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

It's what you come for : Steak and fries, there is nothing else on the menu (this is how it is!!). Like l'Entrecote in Paris, the waiter only asks you what you want to drink and how you want your meat cooked.
I had 150 gr., would go for 200 next time ;-)
Great meat and good Fries (not homemade).
But for Penang, it's great!!
My glass of white wine was nice (house wine) and the red was average (house wine as well).
Would go back!

“Overrated”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Based on the feedback here, thought finally we had a good steak place in Penang.
Disappointed. Wasn't bad but wasn't good either. It was just... decent.
Few key notes:
- Never go for 200g. It's not a proper cut. Don't even know what it is but it was really bad.
- The 300g steak was better but definitely not worth the price.

At the end of it all, it was a little underwhelming. Have i been back there after my first visit? Nope and probably will not anytime soon.
