The BBQ House joint itself is rather simple. Bistrot style, simple tables. I recall the naked red painted walls and a a long bar bar. The menu is also not extensive. A couple salads and soup choices and then you are invited to the core of the business : the carving board. Here, you pick and size your steak (I... More

The atmosphere is not as subdued as The Cut steakhouse in the Ambassador but the ability to choose, within some limits, how much meat you want makes this perfect the solo traveler. I had the prime rib and the steak sauce on the side was excellent. The vegetables were also well prepared. I asked for my steak to be prepared... More

Excellent steak, you get to select the steak from the meat counter, pick the cut and the thickness. Served by gram the steaks are very good Australian beef. Jimmy the owner even did shots with us at the end of dinner - awesome!

The price for a good serving of meat is pretty high, but the quality is very good and I felt satisfied. For a western visitor, Taiwan is full of interesting food, but no matter where you go in the world, a good piece of meat, cooked right, is a treat. I look forward to going back again.

I travel a lot and I can say that it's very difficult to find steak like that.. It was very nice, done to the right term and with a good glass of wine there is nothing that can beat it!! Go for it if you can!

Very nice quality food, nice service and wines (for that is why you pay), if you are looking for a nice steak for dinner you should go there.

Good food. Steaks were good and cooked very well, from medium rare, to medium and medium well done Prices very high, very limited selection in scotch, whiskey and wines. NOTE, WE WERE SURPRISED AT THE PRICE WHEN WE WENT TO PAY, BUT EVEN MORE SURPRISED WHEN THEY DID'T ACCEPT VISA. CREATING AN EMBARRASSING MOMENT WHILE WE FIGURED OUT WHERE THE... More

Since it is the only place to eat decent meat or salmon in Hsinchu, the prices go over any other place you can find in the country. Decoration doesn't add any extra as well. I have eaten in many better places in Taipei for half the price. Nevertheless, good if you are trapped in this industrial city.

The meet quality is good, but the place is too small. Not a place for a decent date, but perfect for friend gathering.
