As we sat at our tables at Wagyu Steakhouse and were greeted by Khun Kim, who was assigned to our dining experience along with the staff made our night memorable. They offered up some complimentary caviar along with the warm focaccia bread with truffle butter. We indulged in the caviar, relishing its exquisite richness. The delicious truffle butter meting on the warm of the focaccia bread, was absolute divine.

The Caesar salad we ordered at Wagyu Steakhouse was a symphony of textures and flavors. Each bite delivered a delightful crunch, with the savory notes of anchovies perfectly intertwined.

The load of Parmesan, sprinkled like fresh powdered snow, added a cheesy crescendo to the dish, enhancing the overall taste experience. It was a culinary masterpiece that left our taste buds tap dancing with joy.

Starter plate of Wagyu Beef Tartar, Salmon Ceviche and Fois Gras with white asparagus with caviar and croutons.

The Wagyu beef tartar was seasoned in such a way, you didn’t think you were eating raw beef. Above all, most people shudder at the sight of raw meat. However, you can rest assure you would be missing out on tasting such exquisiteness in a dish. The salmon tartare is creamy, slight hints of dill and loads of velvety flavours doing a jig. Foie Gras is a gastronomic experience that unfolds with each decadent bite, leaving a lingering taste of indulgence on the palate. The liver’s flavor is complex, offering a luxurious combination of buttery richness, subtle sweetness, and a melt-in-your-mouth consistency. Nothing but the best at Wagyu Steakhouse.

Ordering the Parmesan crusted bone marrow was quite a specialty dish and an obvious choice. As a kid I grew up eating bone marrow. My father was convinced that it would give us internal strength. All things considered, this was a nostalgic reminder of my childhood memories. Definitely try this is if you have not ever eaten bone marrow at Wagyu Steakhouse.

Calling all Mac and cheese lovers and vegetarians in the group! To experience Mac and Cheese in a fine dining atmosphere, undeniably, was really tasty. Most likely the best Mac and Cheese I have ever had.

Grilled scallops in a sauce came out in 3’s. These little sea creatures are most definitely the best to eat when grilled like this. These Grilled scallops, undoubtedly cook to perfection had a small scoop of caviar placed on top. This small detail by and large, is a smashing touch to the entire tasting experience. The sauce is very savoury and we all ate it with the sourdough bread sides.

Selected cut of the steaks we had ordered. We had ordered 2 tenderloin, 2 Japanese Miyazaki striploins cook to perfection. Silence fell upon us as our steaks arrived, and with the excitement of culinary adventurers, we dove right in. However, the experience was nothing short of mind-blowing, as we realized the sheer joy of choosing our weapons before embarking on a steak-cutting adventure

So what makes Wagyu beef so special? Equally important, Wagyu beef is renowned for its exceptional quality, often commanding a higher price due to several distinctive factors. At Wagyu Steakhouse you can find these premium cuts without having to go to Japan.

Firstly, the breed itself, originating from Japan, is known for its genetic predisposition to intense marbling. Consequently, resulting in an unparalleled level of tenderness and flavor. The intricate fat distribution within the meat creates a luxurious texture, making Wagyu a gastronomic delicacy. Additionally, the rearing process involves meticulous care. for example, the cattle often receiving specialized diets and even occasional massages to enhance the marbling.

Lastly, the limited supply of genuine Wagyu beef, coupled with the time-intensive rearing methods, contributes to its exclusivity and elevated market price.

So next on the list were the sides for the steaks at Wagyu Steakhouse. Furthermore, there were so many I can hardly choose which ones made an impact on my tastebuds. All in all, they were all great additions to the overall tasting extravaganza! We pretty much ordered all the sauces and sides to compliment the incredible feast of the wagyu steaks.

Take a deep breath now ….. and wait of a bit …. ate a sip of the full-bodied red wine which boasts a robust richness that envelops the palate with layers of depth and complexity. Every sip enhanced the delicious flavours of the wagyu.

Therefore, despite feeling extremely full, Khun Khem graciously placed a dessert order for us. Yet, we were indecisive about trying them all and too stuffed to even think about another spoonful. However, that changed swiftly the moment the dessert arrived. Simultaneously, we all grabbed our spoons, diving in as if we were famished…haha!

Rum baba delights the senses with its moist and airy texture, soaking in a luscious bath of rum-infused syrup that imparts a decadent, boozy essence. Each bite is a symphony of sweetness, with a perfect balance of rich, spiced flavors and a hint of intoxicating warmth, making it an irresistible indulgence for dessert enthusiasts.

Wagyu Steakhouse is a MUST visit on your trip to Phuket.
