When I go to a steak house in Taiwan, I want STEAK - and a lot of it! A place where 'medium' doesn't mean bloddy and rare. I don't care if it's "poorly decorated" or not, I just want good quality, fresh beef. I'd prefer a regular place to a high-end restaurant that charges ridiculous prices for ity-bitty portions about... More

Other reviews said the place is poorly decorated, and... well... maybe they are right. BUT: The place is great. Go in and get seated. Order your soup/salad, then go to the meat counter where you steak (or salmon or pork) is cut to the thickness you want. If you're not sure how you'd like it cooked they'll talk you through... More

This is the absolute best steak I have ever eaten in Taiwan. The beef is flown in fresh, USDA black Angus. The soups are good as well as the sides. Good selection of beer and wine as well as soft drinks. The owner will come out and greet you at your table unless they are very busy. This place can... More

This restaurant is on a somewhat out of the way street, but is very well run with attentive service and modern music. We were carefully instructed on the different cuts of meat and could choose our own cuts and thicknesses. This attentive service produces a dish made just for you. The fries were also delicious. Prices are fairly high compared... More

I really enjoyed the steak here from the first day I came. The price you pay for the steak that you get is lower than what you pay at other places. I also enjoy the salmon that they serve here. Since eating here I do not eat steak anywhere else, because I do not want to be disappointed. The quality... More

I've never had a better steak than what they serve here. I've seen a lot of places in Europe, but none serves such a great steak. Whenever I get back to Taiwan, I visit this place. Even if it's only for the steak. Great owner, Asian but native American speaker, unlike most other personnel but it is sufficient.

Meat may be good, but It is ridiculously overpriced for what it is; it's a poorly decorated average restaurant on a street in Hsinchu. Service is not the best either...

Been to the place three times. Last one, we were invited to a Birthday Party. All three times, in three years, we left the place with the same dissapointment: For one steak and a drink we paid around 2,000$NT each. The owner (speaks very good English indeed) , is helpful only when it comes to help you to pick the... More

Food was very good, and we felt very accommodated for. Owner was an absolute delight. I read the reviews before we went about it being overpriced, but if you go to any good steak restaurant in Taiwan, you'll pay about the same, it is not cheap-eats but you get what you pay for. In this case: quality. Owner was so... More

Inattentive waitstaff did not impress. The owner seemed too concerned with impressing his mates to attend to the problem we had with our order. Will never go back!
