I'm looking for restaurants that serve decent beef steaks; preferably good fillet steak (tenderloin) but something else like a T-bone might be OK at a push. So, where's good these days?

Thanks for your reply, Wizard, but I meant in Korat, not Bangkok or Pattaya or anywhere else that far away.   :)

The Thai concept of a beef steak is somewhat different to a western one Alfie so I doubt very much whether you will find a good steak in a non tourist area like Korat.
Having said that I was recommended a very small restaurant dead opposite the Walrus bar a few years back. Apparently the restaurant was opened when the Vietnam war was ongoing and there were plenty of Americans in town looking for a steak meal. We went and tried and I don't think the place had changed since them days and had many sixties memorabilia on the walls. Anyway the steak I had was highly palatable and I would recommend you try it but this was a few years ago and I don't know if it is still open.

Speaking about The Walrus they are closed at present although I have heard it will open again in May. There I used to eat a Blue Steak which was rather nice, cost Thb 395. Of course Chez Andy is know for good steak but I have never tried it.

A couple of years ago this restaurant moved to the Soi behind the Raya Grande Hotel. If memory serves me well it is called Uncles. I too don't know if it is still open.

Thanks HL and Derek for reminding me about Uncle Steak restaurant. I ate there a few times in the old location. The steaks were OK and the decor was interesting to look at. I'll look for it in its new location.

I wonder what everyone regards as a good steak? For me, it's a T-bone, not too fatty, cooked medium rare at the very most and with no sauce or gravy!

I want mine with a side of chips, not fries, grilled tomatoes and mushrooms with either Dijon or French mustard.

A caramelised steak, infused with Dijon mustard whilst cooking is heavenly.

I saw a sign, in English, the other day that said Tony's burgers and steak. It was outside a place that is on the U-turn for going back to Bangkok just before Sima Thani. Basically it's opposite the BMW dealership. Has anyone tried it?
