Like all other reviews, 1 thing on the menu, 2 steaks to choose from 150gram or 200gram, after eating Malaysian food for the past 2 weeks it was nice to have a steak with chips and salad, pretty basic meal but it hit the tastes bud spot, steaks were cooked the way everyone ordered them, 2 adult couples with 2...

I think the fact that they only do Steak and Frites,means the Frites also have to be good,and they are. Is this the best Steak you will ever have,no. But it was good and so was the price. Try and get the equivalent in KL for myr60+ ,no chance. Nice placr,location and staff

It came highly recommended...So I decided to try it out... Unfortunately for a place that only has one food item on the menu...It disappoints. The cut was thick..So the doneness uneven... The sauce is nice..But if you lather a whole glob on a steak..It's pretty suspicious that the meat is itself lacking in taste, as was the case. The cut... More

We stopped in for a lovely steak and glass of red. Steak was nicely cooked to order and came with frites and salad and bread. They offered more salad as we did not want any frites. The garlic butter sauce in the steak is delicious. Also house red wine excellent value at MYR15 per glass

As other reviewers have commented this is a 1-item restaurant and boy does it do it well! Beautiful Australian steak cooked exactly as ordered and perfect frites. The sauce is a traditional French garlic butter ( so heavy on herbs, garlic and anchovy) so recommend asking for it on the side as the flavour is very strong for our British... More

Ha-ha, I like it! The sole menu choices are whether you want a big or small steak, and how you want it cooked. A relatively small, but very friendly restaurant, very clean and bright. The steaks are always excellent and the chips great! The house wine is reasonable, and desserts are available (if you have room). We have been twice... More

Went as a 50 year old couple for a staek and frites. As that is ALL they serve you do expect them to get it right and they do. The steak is good with a herb butter on top and the frites are fresh and hot and crispy just as they are meant to be. Interestingly the house red wine... More

One choice, two sizes - large steak or small steak. We (adults and 3 kids) all agree that the medium rare tenderloin was beautifully done. 5 out of 5 for the steak. The starter (not advertised) was a simple, fresh green salad with a freshly made vinaigrette. The chips that came with the steak were the only minor let down,... More
