We had beef. I am a deep beef fan and I don't care to pay a lot for a good one. I have to say this was in my extended experience around the world the second best filet I had! No kidding, perfectly cooked to the point where the outside part roast slightly, cooks some millimeters inside and stays tender in the middle without giving away a drop of blood at cutting. The tartuffo touch on the sauce was perfect, even the salt quality the chef used was at combination in crystals. I was surprised to find such a good quality and fine restaurant here, the price is completely matching to what you get. Highly recommend to meat lovers

If you even visit Ipoh you m-u-s-t visit this place. Located in a suburb in Ipoh chef Chai Wee Khun and his family make every effort to provide you the best food and the best service possible.

They have prices that seem expensive; however, Hors d'oeuvres and wine is included in the price - making it an affordable a bit expensive choice for food. What we loved about the place:

(1) Service - amazing friendly staff welcomes you, and are looking after you throughout your sitting. Chef himself comes out to check how you like your food, gives recommendations, and discuss with you about food and wine. Such a pleasure, given that the restaurant is packed and he is super busy
(2) Food and wine: House wine is offered but pairs well with the whole menu. The meat is of great quality and cooked to perfection (the way you want to eat it). Starters are so delicious and are freshly made depending on what the chef will find in the market the same day

We do not have enough words to say thank you to the chef and we are very sorry that he had to close for the CNY hollidays- we would have been there every night!

Love their steak and lamb, cooked to the way we like, ie medium-rare. The cube roll steak was a decent size. But the tenderloin lamb was a little stingy, wished they would serve more for RM159. The service was great.

Tucked away in a non-descript part of Ipoh, Volcano Grill is the place for meat lovers. The key items promoted by the chef are steak and iberico pork. For steak you can also choose dry-aged or wet-aged beef. The place also serves some seafood items, but I've not tried them yet.

You can also custom specify your items, just contact the chef, let him know your preferences and budget and he can prepare something to suit.

All meals come as a set - the items you see listed on the menu are the main course. Once you've chosen the mains, complimentary soup and appetizer will be served (you have no control what these are, it's the chef's selection of the day). You will also get complimentary wine (by the glass and refillable) and dessert. Children will be given juice. So all in you get a set comprising the soup, appetizer, main course, dessert and wine/juice. Considering all this, the price is understandable (expect to spend RM150 per person and above).

In general the food was prepared well and is tasty. However, there was one time that one item (iberico collar) came out a little tough and I informed the chef. After checking he said it was because the meat was cut on the wrong grain. All other items were fine.

To summarise,

Nice environment, romantic, friendly staffs, the beef is quite large, nice decoration, the wine is quite nice

The food is average.

I still think it's quite nice to give it a try.
