Oman Restaurant Review: The Steak Company

17 Aug 2017
POSTED BY Alvin Thomas

Keen carnivore Hasan al Lawati chooses fish (for a change) at this magnet for meat eaters, but finds the dessert menu a little lacking in options.



“I want to rock my ‘cheat day’. Any suggestions?”

I decided that Steak Company would be the place to wreck my friend’s diet.

Located in Bareeq Al Shatti, the restaurant offers more than 10 steaks, and each comes paired with three dips and mashed potatoes.

The eatery is cozy, family-friendly, and has the steakhouse feel and ambience thanks to its cowhide-themed decor. Its Argentinian steak menu looks very inviting for any carnivore.

My friend, knowing that I’m paying for lunch, ordered the RO 15.9 lomo frito from the steak menu. He was fancying a monster; a 1.3 kg tomahawk which, sadly, was not available at that time, and neither was the T-bone.

Nevertheless, his thick-cut, medium-well steak arrived only 20 minutes from ordering, and its shades of red were just irresistible.

“So tender, perfectly grilled but quite overpriced,” he said.

I, on the other hand, decided to test the chef by ordering a grilled salmon, which was one of only four non-steak dishes. It was the best salmon I ever had, period.

I managed to feast on the delicious fish in a record time, thanks to its smoky taste and really small size. The fresh juices were surprisingly cheap compared to the rest of the menu, the prices similar to those of any small juice joint in Muscat.

For RO3, we ordered orange and lemon with mint juices.

I think the two main courses were just brilliant but the portions were relevantly small when considering the price.

Despite the fact that we had demolished both the meat and the sides, we were still hungry for more, so we ordered a molten chocolate cake.

The dessert list is very limited; there are only three on offer.

We loved the cake; it was divine and served with two scoops of vanilla ice cream.

However, we were startled when the bill arrived. It was RO29.4.

Was it worth it? Perhaps, yes. This steakhouse’s staff were very friendly and they served us very quickly.

Overall, I loved the restaurant and will definitely visit it again when I receive my next salary. It is highly recommended for hardcore meat lovers.

The restaurant opens from 11am to 11pm and it also serves pasta as a possible vegan choice.
