Elvet Steakhouse is a premium Halal steakhouse in East London. They serve a range of high quality Argentinian steaks and Wagyu beef in a 100% halal restaurant. The meals are prepared with the finest ingredients and cooked under the watchful eye of their experienced chef.
Getting There: Honestly I was so surprised that such a premium steakhouse was located in Forest Gate in East London, a few minutes away from Green Street. The nearest overground station is Forest Gate Station. Stratford Underground Station is just a short bus ride away. A number of bus routes pass by including the 25, 86 and 58. Parking near by during the day can be tricky but in the evenings and on the weekends there is plenty of free parking near by.
Once your inside the steakhouse you completely forget you are in Forest Gate. The interiors are very luxurious with modern exposed brick walls and neon lights.There is plenty of seating and the mood lighting creates calm and chilled atmosphere I personally had great service when visiting. Alhamdullilah they even provided us a quiet space to pray in. Opening hours on weekdays is 5pm to 11pm and 1pm to 11pm on the weekends.
We went on a weekday evening so were easily given a table but I would recommend booking if you go on a weekend as I hear they get very busy. They also have an exclusive function room that you can book for special events.
Menu and Pricing: All meat and chicken on the menu is halal. All drinks are non-alcoholic and there is no alcohol or pork on site.
As expected with premium quality food comes premium prices. The menu starts with a range of starters and appetisers from nano burgers to and lamb ribs. The main menu offers a range of Argentinian and Wagyu Beef steaks which according to their menu is only seasoned with sea salt. The prices vary depending on what cut you decide to go for ranging from £21.00 to £55.00. Each steak comes with a sauce of your choice and without any sides. They also serve burgers and house grills. They also have a kids and dessert menu and an extensive drinks menu with different milkshakes, juices and cocktails.
What I ordered: Myself and a friend visit Elvet and we ordered the prawn tempura (£5.95) for an appetiser to share. For mains I went for the wagyu burger (£29.95) and my friend went for the Argentinian black Angus (£30.00). We also went for a side of mash potato (£3.00) and chips (£3.00). We also ordered a non-alcholic cocktail each (£4.75 each).
I have to say the food was of very high quality and tasted delicious. In my opinion the premium prices are worth paying for a high quality and delicious meal.
Final Thoughts: Elvet Steakhouse is a great all round Halal restaurant in in East London. It offers a high quality dining experience which is perfect for a great evening meal out or for a special occasion. From my experience Elvet had a great atmosphere, service and food and I would definitely recommend it and look forward to visiting again.
