Review: 64% off T.G.I Friday’s from BEECRAZY

I must say I’m not a regular on group buying deals and am somewhat skeptical about the quality of food or service that I’ll be getting. However, I saw this TGI Friday deal and thought the food should not be that bad given it’s TGIF so I decided to give it a try. I called 3 days in advance for reservation and the process was smooth. Being that it was a Saturday night, I expected that it may be hard to get a table, but it didn’t seem to be the case. My boyfriend and I got there about 10 minutes after our scheduled reservation, but we were given a seat immediately.

We didn’t know what to expect but figured since it was a group buying offer the food was probably not going to be as good as it normally would be or was going to be smaller than regular portion sizes. The manager took our deal vouchers and also offered us the regular menu, which was nice since we were thinking we might need a “real” starter. Luckily we had decided to wait and see, because once our soup and salad came, it was clear that even for this special offer, they served us their normal, giant sized portions – and my boyfriend was totally happy about it! Lobster soup was pretty good but the Caesar salad was only average. For the main courses, there were 4 to choose from: Steak, Ribs, Grilled Salmon, Shrimp & Chicken Pasta. We had opted for their signature Jack Daniel’s Steak and Jack Daniel’s Glazed Ribs, and boy, were they good choices too. My boyfriend’s steak was really big and totally unexpected since the special menu for our deal didn’t specify the size. It turned out to be a 12-oz. steak and my boyfriend gave every single last piece of it a great home in his stomach. With the steak also came their cheddar cheese mash potatoes. The mashed potatoes had differences in texture where small potato chunks were embedded in the mashed potatoes and cheddar cheese. One word: yummmmmy!

My choice of the glazed ribs was the real star of the meal. At first bite, it had this sweet taste from the Jack Daniel’s glaze, but it then finished off with a salty taste at its core. The meat was moist and easily came off the bone. It would have been a perfect 10/10 for the ribs, except it was a tad bit too salty and if they had held back the salt a touch it would have been a masterpiece. Another nice surprise was that the meal came with unlimited refills of iced lemon tea. One thing was for sure: there is no way anyone can possibly leave feeling hungry still!

The finale had us each seeing a chocolate brownie topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate fudge. The warm chocolate brownie mixed with the icy cold ice-cream made it easy for me to finish the dessert in a heartbeat. Now I know why they named this as their signature dessert. All in all, both my boyfriend and I think this was a great deal in that there was so much for only $198 and the service from the staff was really good. It has definitely exceeded our expectations. The restaurant itself is very spacious (which you seldom find in Hong Kong) but we were surprised there weren’t too many customers (maybe that’s the reason why they do group buying deals to attract more customers?). Anyways, we (and our stomachs) were really happy with this meal and will definitely buy the deal again!
