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?!

Being a vegetarian, I was hesitant about visiting here. But they had catered for many before so have a dedicated area on their huge griddle to cook your own personal selected ingredients. As this is an "all you can eat" type restaurant, you can choose as many different food choices to try. You take a bowl, choose from the varied... More

What a great place! Servers are awesome. The food is fresh. The experience is different than standard pubs. They have the whole process set up in steps/stations.. You can try different meats, veggies, spices and sauces till your belly is full! Great atmosphere and selection. Get there for the early bird special to save a few Euros. Highly recommended.

Great value. All you can eat for a set price. You select your veg, meat etc,then your spices and sauce. It is then cooked in front of you. One of my favourite spots in Dublin

The selection of food is somehow limited, however, there are vegetables, meats and noodles which in combination to the many spices can result in various different dishes. The space of is small but the staff is friendly so they will locate you promptly. Good value for your money since for over 15 EUR you can eat as much as you... More

My colleague and myself wanted something different to try and by chance stumbled on this restaurant. We knew for 17 EURO all you can eat that the meat wasn't going to be of the best quality but this experience isn't just about the meat quality and this was adequate for the price. Above the food selection the restaurant have different... More

This restaurant started out very well. My last visit was disappointing. The quality of the food was not as good as when I last visited in September 2014. The table was not cleaned properly after the previous customer and the service was shoddy. I feel the management has got used of high turnover and are paying less attention to the... More

I had heard great things about this place and decided to try it with some friends for a birthday. The whole experience was pretty disappointing and not one I'll be repeating. The whole picking your own ingredients was a bit of a roulette and at least 2 of our party felt the worst for it. Won't be coming back

Hi Tony, I'm very sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your visit. For the most part, people love the idea of choosing their own ingredients and flavours, and as you mention, we get great feedback and have lots of regulars, but at the same time I know it is not concept for everyone. Nonetheless, we are always disappointed when... More
