Always something new and as often as you like. With Total Mongo's, you not only get the soup of the day as a starter, but also an unlimited selection from the fresh buffet bar. Meat, fish and vegetables, prepared with excellent sauces. And whoever wants starters or dessert with such an all-you-can-eat, go ahead. In spite of the calming colours in yellow and ebony: this place is always very busy. The waiters and waitresses: controllers of the chaos, extremely diligent and attentive. Young guests will really like this.

Disney Land for people who don't go to nice restaurants and have no experience

What a terrible mistake. The team chose the place and I said yes. It's all about the concept and not about the food. Felt like Club med for restaurant business. The waitress tried to make it pleasant but if the food isn't nice that doesn't help. You have to stand in line with your bowl, mix and... read more

This restaurant was amazing, it is extremely friendly service, great design, great fresh food (zebra, kangaroo meet, as well as seafood and vegetables among that). We had an unlimited counter dinner - we got a plate, placed there anything we wanted - meat, vegetables etc (was at least 50 things to choose from) and in the end gave it to... More

Mongo's is a good place to eat to have a fun and different experience with friends. It is a Mongolian barbecue / stir fry restaurant where you pick all of the ingredients yourself into a bowl and then wait while it is cooked. They have some exotic ingredients, for example they had zebra and ostrich. The service is good and... More

If you want stir fry, this is THE place. Excellent selection of fresh ingredients fixed your way. Good service and outdoor seating. A reasonable value.

You can create your own food, just choose the ingredients you like from the fresh food bar and the cook will prepare it for you! Take the Total Mongo's (like all you can eat) and bring enough time and good friends ... it's worth it!

Really close to the Pullman and the range of food was excellent. You just have to control yourself so you don't pile your plates too high with a mix of foods that you would not normally put together,

The atmosphere and service is great. This was my first time and the colleagues I was with suggested the option to select your food and have it cooked fresh. Best choice because the vegetables were fresh and varied and the meat selection from all over the world. Recommend to try all of the non traditional meats including camel and crocodile.... More

The vegetables were fresh and there were lots of different kinds of meats to choose from. I tried meats I had never had before, like camel among others. There was a variety of sauces and were all delicious. I enjoyed trying out different ones. The key is not to overload your bowl each time, that way you can try different... More
