Description: 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.

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

Even though the restaurant was busy during the fair, we got good service and good food, worth a visit if you are in Essen.

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.

Just had a great meal here and highly recommend it. Great selection of veg, meat (very exotic, crocodile, zebra etc.) and fish.

I visited Mongo's with a group of work colleagues. The process is quite simple. You fill a bowl with meat, fish and vegetables. Select a marinade and within minutes the dish is delivered to the table. The food offering is quite exotic with Camel, Kangaroo, Crocodile and Zebra on offer and you can be as adventurous as you wish. The... More

The restaurant was just round the corner from the hotel, so that was ideal for us, but having seen the reviews on trip advisor, it made me want to go even more. You get to choose what you want to eat & the chef will then stir fry this along with the sauce of your choosing. There was a lot... More

The food was ok but Mongo's food is in general always the same. The marinades are ok. It's obviously by far not authentic Mongolian food.
