steaks were not properly done as asked...chicken was very dry...service was very poor--some were already having coffee while the others were still trying to clarify their orders after multiple follow ups...

The place brings a western vibe. Menu is authentic Argentinian. The steak are well cooked upon your preference. I always request for a medium well one. They serve a bunchful sidings. They’re served in small servings though. Steak cuts can actually serve 2 people.

Tips: steak sauce is not served yet the meat itself is superb. You may want to ask for a bunchful of mashed potatoes in advanced.

Ribs is very well done.

Unlike places like Tony Roma wheee the ribs is drowned in sweet sauce, here the subtle sauce is such that it is not too sweet and meat is tender enough and mix with the own made sauce . It make a some what feeling light dinner VS places like chilli and Friday where you can see it is not done as professionally as this place.

Their pumpkin soup to me it quite ingenious where they put just a hint of ginger to it . Again not too heavy with thick cream. Overall a light dinner where one don’t feel one has overindulgence to one dinner .

Location is great too next to Shangri la

Traditional Argentinian style , choose your meats , in the center and then pick from multiple varied hot and cold (refillable) side dishes

My wife & booked a lunch date today, in the expectation of a wonderful steak lunch. Unfortunately very far from it. Whilst we ordered the '2 for 1" set price meal(in expectation that the steaks would not be of the standard of a fully priced one), what was served was a joke-2 pieces(slivers) of rubbery meat. Side salad -4 pieces of lettuce...that's it!!
Before booking, we saw the story of how the owners wanted to recreate a piece of Argentina. Well, I've been to Buenos Aires twice and the difference in standard is a far
as the physical distance. All we were after was a good steak-how hard is it?
To make matters worse, you cannot contact anyone-no email address on their business card & their website doesn't work,
What sort of a place is this?
