If you are a steak lover this is the place to experience the perfect steak. Tender and juicy. To rond it off they serve it with lovely crispy potato wegdes. Yummy. Place with beautiful ambiance, good background music, friendly and efficient staff and service. Lovely bar area. Worth your while and value for money

My fillet steak was great but my brother in... More

We had a really fantastic evening.. the Wagyu steaks and the oxtail was superb! Goes really well with pap! The wine selection was also really good. The staff were also very pleasant.. it is difficult to get a booking but it sure was worth the wait!

Thank Rjsumbei
