Highly Commended Best Steakhouse 11 Comments
- Picture 1 of 2
After a revamp last year, this Emirates Towers venue is still proving popular – the buzzing vibe and talented jazz saxophonist draw plenty of customers, especially at weekends. The decor is modern yet inviting: dark wood and beige leather are complemented by a subtle cow print to reinforce the carnivorous theme, while the huge curving booths at either side provide seclusion for more intimate dinners. The menu yields a pleasing selection, with meaty ribs and sharing options including a sizeable beef wellington and tomahawk steak, while standard cuts run the gamut from Aussie wagyu to Australian, Argentinian, Irish and US Nebraska beef. Sauces and sides are plentiful and inventive (the tempura wasabi fries are worth tasting), and the meat, lovingly cooked and presented, is melt-in-the-mouth tender and crammed with flavour. The final bill is comparable to most of the city’s high-end steakhouses, yet the upbeat atmosphere at The Rib Room makes it feel as though you’re getting more bang for your buck.
