The SteakCompany – Bareeq Al Shatti

The SteakCompany

The SteakCompany (Telephone: 24695903 – Map ) is a steakhouse located in Bareeq Al Shatti – the same mall that has Ubhar, B+F and Wasabi. We reviewed the SteakCompany before, but we heard that it recently changed its menu, so we thought we’ll give it another shot.

The SteakCompany has also recently changed a little bit of its interior design, though the seating arrangement remains more or less the same with a few tables outside and a bright sleek interior seating area. We went for lunch on a weekday and the place was relatively empty with only two other tables taken.

The new menu of the SteakCompany is more streamlined with starters, salads, steaks and a small section on poultry and seafood dishes. The main change in the SteakCompany’s menu is that you can no longer choose the source of your meat (New Zealand, South Africa, etc). The waiter told us that all the steaks are now from the USA and the menu said that they are from USDA Certified 100% grass fed sources.

The new starters section of the menu offers more options than the old menu. We decided to try the Fiery Wagyu Meat Balls (RO 4.900) which I do not think was on the old menu. This was described as being made up of “a very hot blackmore wagyu beaf served in clinatro tomato sauce” and it was in fact really very hot! For me it was perfect and I enjoyed it a lot, though I think some people might not able to handle the heat.

For the main I ordered a good old Ribeye steak (RO 13.900) with chunky fries, while my friend ordered ordered a T-Bone steak (RO 12.900) with mashed potatoes on the side. Our steaks came on a funky wooden platter with a variety of sauces. My steak was delicious and came exactly as ordered.

For dessert the Steak Company offers strawberry cheesecake and chocolate fondant. We decided to order the Chocolate Fondant (RO 2.200) after commentators suggested that it should have made it to our dangerous chocolate dessert list. The dessert took a really long time to arrive, but I assume this is because it got baked there and then for us. When it eventually arrived I found it to be really nice.

The SteakCompany offers a variety of drinks, juices, and mocktails, but we just ordered water during this visit.

In total, we ordered one starter, two steaks, one dessert, and two bottles of water. Our bill total came to RO 37.695.

I found the service at the SteakCompany to be good as usual, our food came exactly as ordered, and save for the dessert, it came without much delay.

I really enjoyed my visit to the SteakCompany and I like the simplicity of their new menu. The SteakCompany continues to be our favourite steakhouse in town!

Have you guys tried the new menu of the SteakCompany, what do you think of it?
