Jervois Steak House

It’s that time of the month. My lack of updates is getting quite common, and for that I apologise. It’s not often I go out and eat at fancy places, and this was a special occasion obviously =)

Jervois Steak House is the place, apparently known for their steaks. JSH is located in Ponsonby, and restaurant environment is quite romantic. Some samples below:

Entre – Alaskan Red King Crab $26.00.

Main – Signature Prime Rib (Queen Size) $43.50.

Main – Savannah Petite Angus Eye Fillet $39.50.

Sides – Creamed spinach with a hint of nutmeg $6.50.

Sides – Candied kumara baked New Orleans style with pecans $6.50.

Sides – Onion rings $8.50.

The thing I was quite impressed with are the partners, which are the sides. It’s well presented and tasty. The Angus eye filltet was very nice. The signature prime rib was a bit of an anti-climax since we had to pre-order it, and in the end, it was OK. However, the portion is quite generous – I have to give that and it was just the Queen Size only.  The entre – crab was difficult to eat and I wouldn’t recommend it. Too expensive and may cut your fingers =)

It’s not somewhere I’d go back again to be honest, but some people would find it great. My stomach is not that big to handle all that food unfortunately. Otherwise, for the steak, the sides, the service and the environment, it’s got good points.

Rating 7.5/10.

  1. I’m surprise you have not reviewed (or even visited) KL Cafe a.k.a. Great North Express Takeaways at 4055 Great North Rd, Kelston. Its waaay out in the wild West (after New Lynn, same row as Repco and before it if heading towards Henderson).

    They serve very authentic Malaysian dishes which some people absolutely love and rave about. Personally, its not that “extra-ordinary” but a very worthwhile visit nonetheless – there will be little or no disappointments here. Prices for mains $10-$15ish.

    They also offer the standard fuush & cheeps takeaway menu too (obviously in order to survive in this line of business).

    • Thanks for the recommendation, I might do an excursion out there soon for KL Cafe. Normally, not an area I’d pass by that often… =)

  2. Hey I’ve always wanted to try the crab at Jervious. Aside from the price and the difficulty, was it delicious? Did they give you crab shell cracking devices to make it easy on your hands?

    • Yeah they did provide the cracking device, but still quite a difficult dish to eat. Portion is small.

      In terms of taste, it wasn’t too bad, especially if you mix it with the garlic oil.
