Good Mongolian food

Not really being fond of fatty meat with little spicing, I have not found Mongolian food to be all that interesting. However of the buuz (steamed dumplings), khuushuur (fried dumplings) and fried noodles I have had, I will say that Modern Nomad has the best I have had and are enjoyable. The... read more

Friendly service and good food. Love the Mongolian food and hot berry drinks. The desert was also great. As far as the meal options its mostly Mongolian traditional food and in large portions so depends on how hungry you are. Even us the locals love to come here for lunch.

Came in from minus 20 for a quick lunch and had a Mongolian milk tea (with salt) and mixed lamb/beef/trifles soup. Got my core temperature right back. Reasonable prices, well assorted menu.

I was on holiday in UB and spent a day with a couple of Mongolian guys. We all went out for dinner and surprisingly, they wanted to go to Modern Nomads. I honestly thought that they would suggest a more "authentic" type place. Well, it was great. I got absolutely stuffed and enjoyed the variety of food tremendously. I visited... More

This restaurant has an amazing menu on offer both from an aesthetic point and from what you can order. I'm not saying all will be to your taste but even horse meat is on offer with other local special delicacies. our steaks (normal beef) were very tasty but a tad cold on serving and that sort of spoilt the meal...

Taken there by my tour guide. Seemed to be an issue with the "voucher", so I instantly realise it is just another tourist trap. Two other tour groups there, but almost finished eating, so maybe we were late. Waitress irritated with us and inattentive. I ordered grilled leg of lamb. I got tough strips of unidentifiable meat -- most definitely... More

I went 3 times to this chain of restaurants during my stay in Ulambaatar . There is always one near you. It is kind of Mongolia fast food. There are many options in the menu although the majority of the plates are made with vital organs, which in my case were excluded! The price is reasonable and they have some... More

Realize this is a chain of restaurants but the food is good! Even the locals are eating here. Like the name denotes, come for local nomadic fare. Decent wine selection.
