Mongolian system. The mix of golden yellow and dark wood stands out in a positive way. So delicious that there are even queues at the buffet. Important: who is really hungry will always leave here sated. The meat selection is very courageous. You can taste game meat from each of the world's national parks. From kangaroo to zebra, it's all here. Super for a nice evening with friends. Mixed guests including youngsters from the creative industries. The staff are helpful and bring a large selection of wines.

Great place for a long dinner

We had a great time here and our dinner stretched out over 3 hours. We were never rushed and the service was great. the menu allows for a lot of options including some exotic meat choices. it also had a lot to offer to the vegetarians in our group.

We visited this place last summer. Interior is amazing and great service. If you would like to experiment different types of meat and other items it is great place but if you are vegitarian then it would be lil difficult to enjoy. worth a visit once.

This Mongolian grill has an interesting variety of meats and vegetables to choose from. If you didn't like your meal, there's no one to blame but yourself since you choose all the ingredients yourself. A fun place with large or small groups. Make a reservation because it fills up fast.

We liked the way you fill up your bowl and chose your ingredients to go with the sauce you want. Had we had more time to do so, we might have sampled the all you can eat version allowing to try all the different sauces with less food in each serving allowing also to taste each ingredient. Would have been... More

A nice mongolian bbq place in Essen. Probably one of the nicest restaurants in this small town. Gets very busy and the queues can be long but has a lively atmophere and the food is very tasty. The service is quick and friendly.
