In this legendary South African steakhouse, you’ll always find juicy, succulent steaks served with sides of laughter filled conversations and unforgettable moments. As the name suggests, the steakhouses also operate Butchery Counters. While grabbing a couple of tenderloins to take home might not be all that practical, you can still visit the counter to learn about the aging process and pick up a copy of the restaurant’s handy grilling guide.


From friendly faces, unmatched service to fantastic recommendations, this South African import ticks all the necessary meaty boxes. All of the meat is good quality, and if you fancy cooking up a steak at home, you can buy cuts from the butcher counter at the front of the restaurant. This butcher shop concept gives the eatery some rustic charm when it comes to the interior decor.

I was invited to their Mall of the Emirates branch, it was an open cafe, floor done with wood, a lively evening and faces all smiling.

Now were serves the traditional Biltong it is a form of dried, cured meat that originated in South Africa. It is typically made from raw fillets of meat cut into strips following the grain of the muscle, or flat pieces sliced across the grain. It is similar to beef jerky in that they are both spiced, dried meats.

Here we were served Beef sausage, Beef Jerky and Snopsticks, all delicious and different.
