A Night at The Thray

The Thray is a medieval-themed restaurant located in the Grove, Guadalupe, Cebu City, Cebu.  If you're coming from the Capitol, turn right at the intersection of Jollibee Guadalupe and stop when you see the 7Eleven on the right-hand side of the road.

If you're a fan of A Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings, this is a place you should go to at least once.  The servers in robes is a nice touch.

Sheryl Nome and JumpShots are excited to be here.

I am unfamiliar with the names of the fictional weapons displayed here so if anyone knows, please let me know in the comments. :)

Ah, my Anti-Mage Iced Tea has arrived and in a wooden tankard at that. :)

They have a shelf with figurines of characters from A Game of Thrones on the right of their kitchen entrance.  Here we have a white walker and Khal Drogo.

We have Brienne of Tarth and SPOILER ALERT! Joffrey "I'm so Glad He's Dead" Baratheon. XD

Daenerys Targaryen; my favorite female character in the show.

The Anti-Mage Iced Tea is iced tea with blue food coloring on the foam to make it more interesting. I should have asked if they brewed the tea themselves. :)

I ordered the "The Warlock's Steak" as I wanted a different animal's meat compared to the pork chop I had last time at Snakyard.  Being a steak lover, I had high expectations for this dish.  First off, the steak was perfectly cooked to a medium rare as I like and it was good that they served the dish still relatively warm.  It would have been a  big letdown had they served it any less so.  Although the dish was tasty, I felt that they could do better by not cutting the steak up into pieces before serving.  It's nice to cut one's own steak instead of having someone else cut it for you.  Another thing is they could have seasoned the steak with a little more salt and pepper to sweeten the deal.  The sauce could have saved the dish also but alas it needed a little more oomph to it.  A bit of JumpShots added a much needed kick but I sadly can't contain my disappointment with this experience.  I hope that the owners of The Thray will see this review and hopefully take my feedback into consideration.  I seriously love the idea of a themed restaurant and I know they can do much better than this.

When you leave, they say, "Thank you, my lord" which is a nice touch, but it would be better if they were a little more into the roles they were playing for the atmosphere to be more convincing.  All in all, I can't say this has been the best food experience I've had but someone told me that their boodle selections had good reviews so I'll definitely be coming back to The Thray sometime.
