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.

Barbecue With A Difference

I was a bit sceptical of this place when I got seated. It is like an up-market, self-service restaurant. It has an asian, exotic feel but that might have come from the animal-skin seating. The food is definitely exotic and asian, with all sorts of interesting menu choices. I hadMongo's Barbecue... read more

For me in German is not easy to find vegan food. So this place was great because you have the opportunity to chose your ingredients. I highly recommend this place.

We were a little bit worried if we will find a place for 5 people, in the entrance first question was "Do you have a reservation?" Answer was simple, no. And it was amazing, for them it was not a problem. Food was good, it is rather such cuisine that you have to choose a sauce and type of mixed... More

Fast food restaurant is a different because some meats, fish and vegetables are out to be common in any other restaurant. The attention from their waitstaff is friendly and efficient. An outdoor terrace nicely complements for spring and summer seasons. it is different !!!

Great food and atmosphere, must visit. This place is perfect for someone who liked Asian food. Cocktails can be better but I'm not cocktail bar, try south China beer instead of Cocktails.

Food is great but service is awful. Waiter was rude and dared to say "when" we could get to eat or drink something which was very stupid and gave a lot of attitude, one of the most rude experiences in my life. Will never come back.

Mongo's is an interesting place. They have a menu, but I don't know why you would use it. The real Mingo's is a one, two, or all you can eat bowl stir fry joint. You order by the number of bowls you want. Then order your sauce. Then take your bowl up to their raw food bar and load up... More

There is a strange food like kabkeru. You decide which sauce you want. You get a piece of wood and go to... More

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 match whatever you... More
