Delicious steak, friendly chef and staff. It's a great local option but wouldn't call it a destination restaurant.

Made to feel incredibly welcome.
The star of the show was obviously the steak.. had two plates of sharing cuts between the four of us, and couldn’t fault it.

Booked this restaurant for a quick meal after a football game with my son. The steaks were amazing. The restaurant was quite quiet (for a Sat night) which meant there was little atmosphere. I would also add that they had very little beer options (the wine list looked good but I was driving later so 1 beer was all I was able to have). I would also say it is not the best value for money. But overall it was good

The best steak in Islington - hands down and have tried them all over the past 20!years.
It’s always a pleasure going to 2k Steak House and have been doing so for many years.
Service is always good to excellent, food is always perfect., exceptional value for the high quality of food.
Try the ribeye , sausages, mushrooms and just about anything on the menu.
Chef John knows his stuff at the grill and a great character!

Can’t believe this place is never full, the food was on point, the wine is delish and the staff are all friendly and attentive. Brought friends here before and they still rave about how tasty the steak was. Just wish the place was full and maybe then the atmosphere would like an authentic buzzing Argentinian

Even though the 2K Steakhouse was a bit more of a walk from Angel than i had thought it was very much worth it. We went quite early, so not really very busy at all but that was no problem. The chef was a really nice and welcoming bloke so we got a choice of table and had no problem ordering. We went for the 1kg of steak with chips and it was worth the £40. There feels like there has been a distinct lack of good value offers on toptable lately, so it was great to find one that is. We were offered to have the steak in two 500g pieces so it could be cooked differently, that was a plus. The two pieces of steaks were big, one looked like a bike saddle, no steak knives no problem, both pieces were soft and easy to cut and the skin on chips were very nice. The offers suggests unlimited chips but to be honest the bowl we were given was more than enough, so no need at all for round 2. Overall a top offer, good steaks (if you have one job as a steakhouse youve got to do it right), friendly staff and left feeling satisfied, this one is worth a go and the walk.

Restaurant could do with a refurb. Lacked atmosphere, only 2 other couples in when we went at 7:30pm on a Saturday night.

The beef filled pasty parcels I had for starter were nice and good value at about £5. My sirloin steak was also very good, but unfortunately the sweet potato fries with sausage (there were 3 small slices of sausage in there) were sloppy and unpleasant.

Very poor salad garnish on everything, consisting of a few pieces of lettuce.

The lamb chops my girlfriend had were not very nice and she was ill as soon as we got home.

Service was fine and staff very pleasant.

Will not return.

With so many Argentinian Steak Houses around nowadays, this one simply does not cut the ice.
We arrived 15 mins early to a deserted, overlit space reminiscent of a boarding school refectory.
There was nothing new or exciting on the menu, and that which was served was mediocre at best.
Service was slapdash and perfunctory and with no alcohol or dessert the almost £100 bill for 2 seemed steep .
I wouldn't eat there again

For a steakhouse they sure can't cook a steak. My medium rare steak came out medium well and my partners medium steak came out rare. It took them 2 more trips back to the grill to fix hers by which time I had finished my meal alone. Absolutely useless. Will not be back

Was a lovely meal..a bit over our budget but it was Valentine's day..they did have a special for Valentine's day but not all what we wanted..my partner was a bit chilly..we were sat under a air condition unit I think it was..but the service was lovely friendly food gorgeous..would like to be a bit more private like a booth or..different arrangement of tables as they are all in a row..( more intimate setting that's the word I'm looking for)..but the experience was great...would recommend for family gatherings or large bookings..lovely experience..😉😉😉

A decent stab at authentic Argentinean steak. Between me and my wife we had a large fillet steak and a good value 680g sampler of 4 different cuts, all of which were juicy, although some could have been stronger tasting. Also a good and unusual wine, which complemented the meal well. The empanadas for starters were well filled but I would leave more room for meat as a preference. Not bad value, especially for those wanting to share some of the sharing plates.
