MASH – Modern American Steak House


Buried in the basement of a building in a busy corner of Piccadilly resides this ornate and fantastic art-deco designed steak restaurant. Luckily we rocked up on a 50% off steak night, so we decided to indulge in a fair amount of the ol’ red meat.

From a small entrance you descend down a wide staircase and then into the large open space of the restaurant. Stuck out of time from the 1920’s it invokes thoughts of flapper dresses and zoot suits.IMG-20131122-WA0011

We sat at the large bar area for a drink whilst our table was getting ready, and shortly afterwards whilst being led to our table we were led past a class ageing cupboard where you can see the fine cuts waiting to be eaten at just the right time.

My esteemed colleague decided to go for the vast 1.3kilo Porterhouse steak, and I went for the US NY Strip. With a load of starters sides and sauces on offer the menu will not disappoint any Steak lover.IMG-20131122-WA0012

We also had another NY Strip and a Rump Steak ordered for our better halves but when the Rump Steak was delivered it clearly was not the rare-cook that was asked for. To be fair, when this was highlighted to the staff they quickly apologised and replaced the steak with a fresh one. The quality of the meat was very good; not as good as other premier steak houses I must admit,  but the sauces, and especially the side of bone marrow was superb – really succulent, rich and deliciously when paired with the meat.

As mentioned the staff were attentive and at times humorous throughout; with at no time us feeling rushed.

Overall MASH is definitely worth a visit for the whole experience of art-deco surroundings, good service and good beef – but bear in mind at full whack a steak costs in the region of £30 a hit, so it is bracketed on the same levels as Goodman’s, and Hawkesmoore.

£50 per head inc. wine
