We have been here a small handful of times now. It is amazing. The food is cooked fresh and to order in full view of the diners, with an amazing selection of meats you would not find in many places. Definitely go for the full feast, it is well worth it. And as well as making up some of your own adventurous recipes, I would recommend trying some from the recipe placemat. So tasty, it is a disappointment when you get full!

I have been here 4-5 times over the last couple of years & I love it! The small pieces of meat enable the chef to cook your food quickly thus allowing you to refill your bowl as many times as possible. The choices of meat/seafood is rotated ensuring the menu is fresh and providing you with the experience of different tastes. If you don't like the spices you choose then that's your fault. A warm welcome awaits and at £24.95 for an unlimited amount of food I think it's excellent value.

We visit family in Edinburgh as often as we can, and a reservation is ALWAYS made here! Great food and a brilliant concept- something just a little bit different. Service is always excellent. I would recommend that you have little dishes, so you can try as many as possible- definitely have the full feast.

Cannot praise this place highly enough!

I've been here a few times and enjoyed it every time. It's quite expensive coming to £35 each with only 2 drinks. Love choosing a different meat and sauce each time and they can be tweaked to your tastes. They had pheasant this time which was delicious. I also tried the llama which was like really chewy beef. Sometimes I think they could have better cuts of meat but the choice provided allows you to experiment with things you wouldn't otherwise get the chance to.

For those with any doubts, the food served here is not mongolian but the style of cooking is, back in the days of the mongol empire they cooked over a fire on the back of their shield with everything thrown on together. Having travelled in Mongolia myself I can assure you that real Mongolian cuisine would not make a successful restaurant with the predominant meats being mutton and yak.

We came here with the family and were certainly glad we did. You can make up your own meals using the ingredients and spices, and then get them cooked to perfection by the willing and friendly chef. There's a ceratin amount of guidance though you're free to experiment! Would certainly recommend Khublai Khans as a "different" experience, though come with an appetite.... Service was friendly and accommodating.
