    The steak is as good as I remember it, and I will be back again for more that's for sure. The sides (other than the chips) could do with being a bit larger for the price. They tasted brilliant, but £6.50 for veg, there needs to be a little more there in my opinion. Like I said, I will be returning for sure.

    Absolutely gorgeous steak. Generous quality cuts of meat, perfectly cooked. This was my first visit for my birthday with friends. We each like our meat cooked differently and we were all very happy. I will be making regular visits.

    The food was excellent but made special by the staff particularly the lady running the show who was very knowledgeable and clearly believed in what they were cooking. It’s not cheap but it shouldn’t be . The steak was excellently cooked and overall I was really impressed

    Bull steak expert is consistently excellent, first time back last night in two years and for me the best steak I have had in London. Unassuming and understated decor, you could easily walk past the place and ignore it. excellent food, we had the steak tartare and ancho a la pimienta both of which were cooked to perfection. On the pricey side but I went to Hawksmoor a few weeks ago, which is a similar price point and there is no comparison.

    We had a fantastic dinner at The Bull Steak Expert. We were served a piece of steak on toast on arrival as a welcome gesture and it was delicious. Our filet steaks were soft and succulent and cooked to perfection. The pepper sauce had the exactly right amount of pepper, the chips were moreish, and the humitas was delicious. It was the first time we tried humitas (a mixture of sweetcorn and cheese) and it was even better than we had imagined. The wine list is extensive, our Malbec was exactly what we expected. The quality of the steaks was on a par with the steaks we ate in Mendoza, Iguazu Falls and Buenos Aires. I cannot give a compliment higher that that to a steak! As a whole The Bull Steak Expert offered the closest to the parrillada experience that I have found outside Argentina. The Don Pedro for desert was exactly as expected, i.e. very tasty with good quality ice cream and good whisky. The serving staff were great. The Sicilian young man was delightful - we have always found Sicilians to be friendly and hospitable people and this impression was reaffirmed - and the young lady from Buenos Aires was a pleasure to deal with. We ordered two extra portions of the pepper sauce during our meal - the first two portions had disappeared to our mouths at record speed. The same thing happened with the chips and we ordered one more portion. Both arrived very quickly. One thing is sure. We will be back. We both have a birthday once per year, we have our anniversary and maybe we can invent some other special occasions just to have a reason to come back.

    Our first visit and we will be back! Great meat - it lives up to their promise. So tender, tasty and expertly cooked. Good selection of sides. The steak is so good that we did not even use the sauces that we ordered. Good and friendly service.

    Never had a bad meal here. The steaks are excellent, and the sausage platter is great to share as a starter. Good wine list. The ambience is more functional than glamorous but the service is excellent.

    We met for a business meal and it was our first time in this restaurant. It will not be an exaggeration to say this is the best ribeye steak I have ever had, washed down with Malbec wine. Service was really friendly , and we all had a great time and will come again.
