Such a fun place to go for dinner! Have been there once, but definitely planning on going back! So many vegetable, meat and sauce options! with no doubt the most customizable meal you’ll have at a restaurant! amazing experience watching them cook it right in front of you within seconds! it’s definitely an experience!

Booked a work dinner for a group of 20 and the staff were more than happy to accommodate. This sort of dining is great for large groups as it is all you can eat and BYO wine - no mucking around with 20 different orders for food and drink. In saying this, it is not the sort of place I would go for a meal with a smaller group. The food, while adequate, is not the best quality - with the meat in particular, which is clearly frozen and then thawed out rather than being fresh. As everyone's meal is cooked on the same BBQ, no matter what you put into your bowl it tends to taste similar. The line for food can also get very long, particularly on a Friday and Saturday night, which resulted in many people at our table having less food than they otherwise would have.

A typical Mongolian affair, load up your bowl as you follow the queue along the trail of noddles, pre chopped vegetables and finely sliced meats. Add a selection of sauces to enhance the taste, this can be done either by following suggestions written above the condiment counter or by letting your culinary creativity take charge. When you are happy with your choice, had the bowl over to the chef to stir fry and a few mins later your meal is ready to eat. As this restaurant has an all you can eat option, you can return as often as your stomach permits. Dessert is an additional cost, and they do have a fun smoking ice cream on the menu which is fun to watch. This is an entertaining and reasonably priced venue for families , it's nice enough. The highlight for me was the cheap cocktails priced about $9. Even more exciting was the fact that they mixed a grasshopper cocktail!

We came here year ago and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This time around, it was quite a disappointment.

The selection of food is similar to what it were years ago but the chef aren’t as good cooking the food that we choose... it will be easier to cook the food with a cover when there are streams to help it cooked better. Instead, the chef just keep stir frying the food and flipping around the overburnt pieces when they finally put the food into our plate. The veg isn’t cooked properly... and the meat was tasty a little bitter because of the overburnt...

What really put us off was the flies on the food... there were about 2-3 flies hiding itself in the carrots... and a few more flying around... around the red meat trays... which was a real put off. I thought there were covers for the food to avoid this but it clearly wasn’t the case. So, hygiene really was a put off for us...

The staffs were really efficient in taking the plates away. And when they were asking how was it (assuming that we finished pretty early in comparison to other tables)... we were pondering on where to start and what to say especially when come to hygiene in a warm day like this... so one of us decided not to say anything so the rest of us just walked out and waited. If it’s done nicely, it’s defintely good value for around 21-22 per person.
