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

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...
