An easy way to fill hungry tummies

Great place to go when you have hungry boys to feed. This is a place where you can choose your raw ingredients and then a cook will zap them on the hotplate. You can go back as many times as you want. Loved the chicken and sweetcorn soup too.

It's a fantastic idea. It's probably sacrilege for me to say, but it's like halfway between all you can eat and Teppanyaki. You pick the stuff you want in your noodles and they cook it up on the hotplate in front of you. It was really nice. The restaurant itself was nice too, a little rough round the edges I... More

Came with a group of 7 early on Friday night. Really enjoyed the food, good selection but it did take a while to get through as it got busier. Staff handled this really well, getting an extra chef out and keeping everything stocked up. Drinks and dessert menus were really good too. Definitely worth the price for a good meal... More

We dined here on our first anniversary! We chose the open buffet. It was an interesting experience as you could watch the chefs cook your meal right in front of you in a matter of minutes. It was generally very good. The meat could be sliced a bit thicker to really get the flavour in the dishes..

A good BYO a decent unique selling point. The way the food is cooked for you is cool. The restaurant is noisy so definitely suited to a large group. Eat all you can is awesome. Staff were good and the owner was very friendly.

We have choose this place so we can just have a good conversation between friends while try something interesting. The Mongolian BBQ buffet with all you can eat - all the meats are sliced thinly with all the different types of sauces and the vegetables good for a quick stir fry by the chefs. So all one has to do... More

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 choose from. Our... 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
