Not exactly like Mongolia (missing the cut throats and innards on view luckily!) but a good place for a fun night. Don't have to watch your Ps and Qs. Staff are all very good and helpful.

Just by chance, we were travelling up to Kerikeri and decided we would stop in Whangarei. It was Sunday night and not much open but came across Gengy's a Mongolian restaurant. Excellent find you have a self service choice to soup starters hot bread salad bar. Then you choose your food again help your self into a bowl from a very good choice 3 choices of chicken, 2 beef, 1 lamb, 3 seafood prawns crab etc, plus 2 others. Then you go to the prepared raw vegetables bar, spices and oils. Once you make your choice you hand the bowl to the chefs/cooks and they cook in front of you on a mass hot plate. It is all self service to the raw ingredients as much times as you want and they cook it. The salad bar is very good also chips sweet potato done in various ways. After that you can have pancakes made for you as many as you want and help yourself to ice cream. We were a family of 4 with kids 10yr & 9yr.The kids are charged at $2 plus $1 for year so cost $12 & $11 for the kids. Great meal, great value & quality, large seating area great service & staff. If in Whangarei this is the place great for big or small groups very social and fun.
