Reviewed: Steak and Lounge

The restaurant serves a modern fusion of Indian and African cuisine.

Steak & Lounge, found opposite St Margaret's bus station on Abbey Street, has a delicately classy two-floor interior with a black and gold design aesthetic and big lavish chandeliers.

The restaurant’s excellent location makes it easy to reach even during busy hours. The knowledgeable waitstaff demonstrated a high level of quality and my waiter even recommended the delicious Crispy Prawns starter and I was not disappointed.


But the star of the show was the Angus hot plate, which I still can't get out of my mind. I would highly recommend anyone who visits to order a hot plate because I have a theory it makes steak taste out of this world. The meat was beautifully seasoned, layered with peppercorn sauce that was to die for, and a generous number of sides.


Apart from the regular four cuts of Sirloin, Ribeye, Fillet (all 8oz) and a 12oz T-bone, there are a variety of steak sizzlers available, including a surf & turf and a paneer.


You can wash this down with their selection of beautifully blended milkshakes, smoky and slush mocktails and, if you love sweet drinks as much as me, I suggest getting the lychee and passion fruit smoky mocktail. It was refreshing as well as entertaining to watch being made.

as for desserts or the dessert trio, they offer waffles, classic cookie dough and cakes. I am a waffle fanatic so I could not resist ordering the Oreo waffle, which hit the right spot to end a delightful meal.


The main reason I booked the Steak and Lounge was for the Shisha bar but sadly it was not available to the public yet, but I was told to keep an eye out for its return!

Steak and Lounge Restaurant surprised me in many ways with such a friendly and comfortable atmosphere, tasty food, and it is somewhere I would happily visit again.

Find Steak & Lounge at 41 Abbey Street, Leicester LE1 3TE.
