Limited vegetables, not fresh, lots of rules posted, not friendly, dingy, and overall poor. Most of these reviews must be written by friends and family.

We have been going to this place since the kids were very young, 20+ years later nothing has changed. It is still a great little hole in the wall family owned restaurant that has good food. Kids will love watching their food make before them.

Decided to try out this restaurant. As soon as we sat down, we were promptly greeted & immediately served complimentary egg flour soup and fried wontons. The dinner was @ $11 each & worth it. Typical Mongolian BBQ style with 4 meat choices, noodles and unending vegetable & sauce choices. They had two men working the wok, so our food... More

We met up here for dinner and we very satisfied with our food. You have a pretty good selection of meats and veggies and I was happy to even see the pineapple. Quick service but a little bit of a wait for drinks but we managed.

You select exactly what you want from the large selection of bins and watch it cooked on the huge round grill. You can't go hungry and everything is fresh.

Worst Mongolian ever. Poor service. Cold soup & rice. Limited choices and looks old & dirty. Don't sit under the ceiling vents, as they are black.
