Big Horn Steakhouse


Evil Penevil

Recommended Posts

I visited Big Horn Steakhouse several weeks ago. It's located in the arcade across from Mike's Mall and next to Kiss Food on 2nd Road. Our goal had been a meal at Beefeater, but it was closed for renovation, so we took the  nearest alternative for steak. It had been several years since I'd last eaten at Big Horn.

It wasn't so much the food as the interior decoration that had put me off, so I made a snap decision to give it another try.  I wasn't disappointed with the food, but the interior decoration was as peculiar as I'd remembered it.

Big Horn is certainly America-inspired, but it's actually an offshoot of a Norwegian steakhouse chain, one of the larger restaurant chains in Norway.  I'm not sure who now owns Big Horn, but a few years ago it was a Swedish guy.  I don't believe the Big Horn Streakhouse in Pattaya now has any connection to the Norwegian chain other than the name.

 

The decor at the Big Horn is what you might expect in faux Wild West restaurant in Oslo or Stockholm.  It's not rundown or uncomfortable ...

It's just the stuff they hang on the walls:

In contrast, here's how the Bighorn Steakhouse on Highway 6 in Dillon, Colorado, presents itself:

But enough about interior decoration and on to the food, which is really the important factor.  I have to say, though, that if any of my relatives from Montana ever visit me in Pattaya, I won't take them to Big Horn.  I'd be too worried they'd piss themselves or choke to death while laughing.

 

I ordered the Plank Steak with mashed potatoes and bearnaise sauce.

It's been a personal favorite of mine since my days of living in Scandinavia in the 1970s and 1980s.  Apparently the concept of roasting meat and fish on a wooden plank began independently in two wide-apart areas of the world: among the Vikings of the Nordic region and the native Americans of the Pacific northwest.

My plank steak was delicious; 200 grams of decent-quality Thai beef cooked as I requested, with good mashed potatoes and a sauce that complemented the beef without overpowering it. It was garnished with shoots of asparagus wrapped in bacon and a griled tomato.  I thought it was worth the 495 baht I paid for it.

The two ladies with me ordered an avocado shrimp salad that we all shared:

It was good, a simple salad done well. The house salad that came with the entres was unremarkable and slathered in thousand island dressing.  The bread was freshly baked.

The ladies then had 100-gram beef files with sides.  One chose a baked potato,

the other had potato au gratin.

 

post-9139-0-90878500-1403358977.jpg

 

 I tasted the au gratin and it was fine- it had the proper cheese topping.

 

post-9139-0-12619300-1403358983.jpg

 

The ladies also had dessert.  It was also Scandinavian influenced.  Ice cream with bananas topped with syrup and industrial meringue.  It wasn't what I would choose, but the girls liked it.

Bottom line:  I'l be back to eat the plank steak again, but the Beefeater and several other restaurants are better choices for a steak dinner.

Thanks for the update , that steak pic looks good , I am a big fan of Steak , never been there yet , must do on my next trip. I was too fussy to try other restaurant . I tent to stick with the same ones , Patrick the Belgian , Cherries and The Tara Court for steaks grub. But seeing a picture of yours makes me think again to add that restaurant to my favourite steak menu . I avoid the Sizzlers , they don't cook a good steak. Thanks again. Manhattan Steakhouse up at theppraya rd , last Xmas , it was closed . Wonder if it is not in business anymore ? Maybe it is in the wrong locations .

Nice pics and review,would like to try it out.........................BTW,did your steak come with the sauce on top from the kitchen or did you put it there yourself ?

I hate it when they not bring you the sauce in a separate....cup ?

Great review. 

Last week I was planning to go to Beefeater also but it was closed. 

I did consider Big Horn Steakhouse but ended up choosing elsewhere. 

Next time I'll check this place out...Thanks.

I haven't been to Big Horn in quite a while, nice to hear it is still very good. Both them and Beefeater are excellent choices. Now if that arcade would get rid of the annoying Indian tailor touts that area would be perfect. Patrick's Belgium Restaurant is also a great feed!

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
