Average but we go there often for diversity

We have gone there quite a few times mainly because I love a Mongolian grill and our children like to pick their ingredients. Last time we were there they had a cook in training. Poor guy has to learn in public. Lots of burnt food but he'll get it. The ingredients have been fresh and plenty to... read more

The restaurant let you choose your ingredients and the chefs cook it for you. While it is quite unique, all the sauces were very confusing and no explaination was provided. Whether the food is good or not is entirely up to you, so I cannot give it neither a good or bad review, since it is something you will have... More

About 20 of us went to Genghis Khan for dinner last night (Monday). The service was outstanding and the food great. The waitress was very attentive to our needs and made sure everyone was happy. A number of people in our party had never visited before, and were keen to choose their own food and watch while it was cooked.... More

I got food poisoning from my first visit to Ghengis Khan; not ideal. I found that although the staff were enthusiastic the food was average at best, the lines too long and the ambience was tacky. I wasn't a fan of eating the burnt bits from the barbecue with my meal either. The only redeeming things for me were that... More

This is a cool idea where you can choose your own meal and watch it being cooked. Only thing is though if you don't know much about cooking these kinds of dishes and aren't knowledgeable about different flavours your dish might not be as tasty as I found. When this place is really busy there is a queue to get... More

8 of us dined on Saturday night before the Wearable Arts show. The concept is unique to me but it works. Get a bowl, choose your raw vegetables or salad, choose a slice of frozen meat, choose an oil or sauce and then hand to one of the guys on the big round barbecue. They do their magic and there's...

The younger family members enjoy the hands on and interactive elements of this experience: fill your bowl with noodles, vegetables and a meat selection plus sauces - hand over to the chef at a giant BBQ - its back with you in minutes to enjoy! After overdoing the sauce flavours and chilli on the first round, a lighter hand rewards... More

It is comforting that in our fast-paced world of permanent change, often, it must be added, just for the sake of change, some good experiences remain the same. I discovered during our recent visit to Wellington that the Genghis Khan in Majoribanks Street was just as good as it was back in 1983 ! And at just under $20 for... More

Booked our group of four for the 1st service for 6pm on a busy Saturday night. Glad we went early as told the restaurant was going top be busy and rocking all night. Grabbed our bowl, filled it with all that I wanted to beat and had one of the 3 cooks down on the barbeque plate cook it. It... More
