Enjoyed the set menu, service and food very good and beautifully presented, portions are small, but you won't leave hungry.

Croutons were stale and Mushroom Risotto bland. Crab cakes delicious and dinner rolls freshly made. Meat in Churrasco a bit overcooked. Would certainly go but would try a couple of different dishes. Beetroot dip really nice.

We went to this place because we tried and enjoyed El Gaucho in the past in Saigon and we were so pleased that we want to try it again. Unfortunately the outcome is a bit lower than what we experienced and expected: the menu offering was not so wide as we'd like to and the quality of the meat is... More

So many people think coming to the Asia Pacific is going to be filled with the best seafood they've ever had. I'm telling you after 2-1/2 years here, that couldn't be further from the truth even under determined search. El Gaucho hits the mark! That is what sea food is supposed to taste like. Excellent quality, prepared as it should... More

We ate at the restaurant on two occasions. Fantastic food, awesome mixed grill where the chef serves various BBQ meats on huge skewers. Excellent salad bar. Friendly staff. Not cheap compared to other Thai restaurants more on par with Australian pricing.

We came here expecting a brazilian style rodizio. It was not good, in the menu they say premium beef cuts and they only served one type of beef the rest was chicken, ham, lamb but not beef. Service was very good and the place is nice, but mosquitos bite. Its overpriced.
