This must be the best value restaurant in Hamilton, if not New Zealand. You can enjoy as much freshly-cooked food as you can eat. This includes beef, lamb and seafood, with a lot of tasty accompaniments and sauces, as well as soup and adequate, if limited, desert..

The cooking process is typical Mongolian, and well worth just watching the skill of the chefs as they manage the large open grill. It ensures that you get your food hot, and, as you can specify how well you want it cooked and put on exactly the sauces and flavours that you want, it is difficult to see how you can go wrong. If you do, you can just take another plate and go back! The process also ensures that, apart from peak times, there is only a short wait

Desert consists of ice-cream and flavouring (the ice cream is a bit hard and over frozen), but it comes with pancakes cooked in front of you, which are just excellent.

I love this place. Excellent value for money. Been quite a few times as i enjoy making different sauces for my food. I never leave feeling hungry as it is all you can eat buffet style after all.
My boyfriend loves the pancakes and i love finishing up with ice cream!
A must visit for Mongolian style dining.

This place is a bit of a favourite amongst locals who don't have lots of money to spend on a fancy restaurant.

Pick your ingredients (or follow their recommendations), hand your food to the guys at the huge, steaming cooking plate, watch your food get cooked up in minutes, and enjoy.

It's good value for the price you pay.
