Mongolian cuisine, barbecue, a huge non-smoking area, buffet, and a trendy atmosphere are among the trademark features of this restaurant. The expansive range in meat - (elk, kangaroo, springbok, chicken, beef, pork, lamb), seafood and vegetable preparations take guests by surprise as the wait staff patiently await your order with a smile. You can take a bowl and stuff it with raw meat, seafood, veggies, etc. at the buffet counter and get it cooked within 10 minutes! Beer, wines and cocktails keep spirits high. Reserve a table to avoid disappointment.

I have been to mongos many times and I would recommend anyone to it when they visit Munich as it is so different. Having the freedom to make your own meal is great and it's very flexible with the creations you can make. Worth a visit for sure

This is a fun restaurant providing the "build your own dish" concept but with a little twist of more unusual ingredients. On the evening I visited there was zebra, crocodile and others as well as a good selection of veg, meat & seafood. You choose your sauce, load up your bowl and then the chefs stir fry it perfectly for... More

Dinner with a friend, no reservation and on a Tuesday night they were almost full. The scheme is quiet good: you predict how many times are going to the buffet and then you choose one-time, two-time or unlimited (total). The price difference is small so they end up selling you the total for 23 euros. I went with the two-time... More

If you are a meatlover - then you will go gaga over the variety of meat spread. Although, my veggie wife loved her meal beyond words too! Its the bowl concept, with one, two or unlimited rounds to the selection counter and you can get extra sauce/marinade to spice up your meal. I think the one round was enough for... More

Mongo's is half way between MarienPlatz & SendlingerTor and the usual visitor to Munich could well miss it (as it is not the 'tourist' route between both). Other reviewers have described the concept so we just wanted to recommend the restaurant after having had a fantastic night out there . We did not find it cramped but may have become... More

I like the concept of Mongo. Its a Mongolian restaurant where you simply take your bowl, fill it with your favorite ingredients such as vegetables and different kind of meat (rabbit, kangaroo, zebra etc). Then you hand over your bowl to the chief and he will make it ready for you. Taste is great, concept good and can be a... More

Food is very interesting here, highly unusual meats will be cooked instantly at your choice. Most of the meats were first-rate. The sauces and hot oils were really great for the most part, too. Large salad and vegetable buffet. Seating was a disappointment, though. There is almost no privacy with the neighboring table just a foot away.
