Description: Mongolian Barbeque is the name given a method of cooking used by Genghis Khan and his troops in the 13th century, when they would cook meat on their shields over an open fire! Now we use a cast iron grill over an open flame, and you get to choose your ingredients. We have a great range of meat and vegetables, spices and sauces. With prices starting from 5.90 Euro at lunchtime for one trip, Early Bird discounts and All You Can Eat options, as well as tempting side orders, desserts and great beer offers, how could you resist?!

Different to most of the usual Asian restaurants, in here you are given a buffet full of noodles and many different vegetables and you can fill your bowl as high as is possible with whatever you like. You then pick a small bowl of meat (fish, chicken, beef, some pre-seasoned, some not) and then you can fill the vegetable and... More

You select your own vegetables, meat, herbs and spices which are then cooked in front of you. The price is very reasonable particularly if you arrive before 7pm

Good idea and great food at a good price but I didn´t find the food as amazing as other perhaps I just don´t know what goes with what as you mix your own spices etc but was okay for me as a one off.

Stumbled upon this place when walking through Temple Bar District. My girlfiend and I walked in and the staff were really helpful. The food here - fantastic! For 6 euro, a freshly cooked meat and noodle dish, seasoned how you like with the vegetables you like, alongside a fresh bowl of rice it was totally unbeatable for value, and price!... More

I have been there more than once and the food tastes marvellously. If you go at lunch time the price is pretty good (not at dinner time, when price doubles and quality keeps the same). Only a thing to consider: if you are allergic, do not go there, as they prepare your food and other people's food at the same... More

Visited on a Tuesday lunchtime and it seemed fairly busy. The manager greeted us warmly and showed us to our table. My little girl and I selected our noodles, veg and meat - I added spices to my selection but my daughter didn't want any. We then watched our food being cooked - my daughter enjoyed watching her lunch being... More

What a lovely novel way to enjoy a meal out. A barbeque indoors with no effort. Just select your ingredients and it is cooked for you. A fun, buzzy place,lovely food, lots of different flavours, it's down to you how many, and a great place to meet friends. Such a lovely night out.

This was an amazing find in the middle of Dublin. I've not had Mongolian food before but this was really cool. You pick anything from the large range of raw ingredients, the sources and spices you want. Then, you hand it all to the chef who will cook it all on a very hot metal plate. It's all done in... More

An affordable and funny way to change the family routine of the usual "where do you want to eat tonight". Obviously this is not Irish, but why not? Kind service that merely consists in taking the buffet order and the drinks and showing you the way it works (not rocket science though). Recommend to follow the couple of menus that... More
