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?!

Something different

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.

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

Tried this place after hearing great reviews about it. I wasn't impressed, I found the the meat really bad quality, tough and general quality of food was poor. I don't normally give bad reviews and I'm just about to go write a great review about another restaurant, so it's just my opinion on this place.

Hi Mike, Sorry to hear about your experience. If at all possible could you let me know when it was so I can follow up on your comments and make improvements if we can? Like you mentioned, we do get good reviews and we have a lot of regulars, so we're always disappointed when someone doesn't get the good experience... More

I loved this experience of preparing your own meals with ingredients and sauces and having it cooked on a grill in front of you. You actually decide how tasty it is, not the chefs....so you have no one to blame if you mess up initially! Very friendly staff who also provide tips about preparing your dish. Guess the only drawback... More

Went here on a Sunday night on our first night in Dublin. Could not be more impressed. All you can eat meat, noodles, rice, veg, spices and sauces for €14 a head! The meat and veg and noodles are cooked on the griddle fresh to order it takes only a few moments and is worth waiting every second! Full of... More

We are frequent visitors and have never been disappointed! We love the stir fried meat and vegetables with the great variety of spices and sauces. We have always been greeted/served by friendly staff. Really tasty food! Excellent value! We look forward to our next visit in the very near future!

I think that can be said of most Mongolian BBQ places. I think my seasoning came out tasty more by accident than design. They simply set out a variety of spices and sauces, label them by name, and you pick out as much or as little as you want. Other similar restaurants have descriptions of the flavors you can expect...
