Nice decoration and good food and FREE WIFI!

A very nice clean restaurant. We enjoyed our relaxed lunch. Food is good nothing spectacular. It also has free wifi. Wifi alone will make it worth to visit, especially we were off the grid during Gobi tour for almost a week.

There are a few outlets but we went to the one next to Best Western Premier. It looks spacious, with plenty of tables. We ordered the mixed dumpling platter which was interesting as we sampled the different sorts of dumplings. Since there were only 2 of us, we couldn't order the larger platters. I had the grilled lamb, which was... More

Was brought here by tour guide, pleasantly surprised by how clean the restaurant and efficient the service was. A bit gimmicky in terms of décor, but it's a chain restaurant and they're probably targeting tourists and people who want convenience. It was good enough for my husband and I who have never had some of the nomadic food prior to... More

It used to be my favorite, but boy, you would waste so much of your time waiting for your orders. Especially, lunch or dinner wait time was too much, so I stopped eating in any of this chain. Also, food here became more bluntly tasted despite so much selection in the menu (with funny names). Forget about the deserts, they... More

Modern Nomads is a chain with locations all over town - look for the logo, and you will be assured of a good meal. The salad selection is excellent. They offer a"western" menu with steaks etc. in addition to traditional Mongolian food. If you order the khuusuur you will probably have enough to take some home.

Perfectly acceptable Mongolian food (actually, a rather boring cuisine -- mostly meat and dumplings, without herbs), along with various Western dishes such as pizza, salads, pastas. Chain of restaurants, with the character of such. Easy to deal with, inexpensive.

The food looked good but wasn't great. The Ox salat was ok but the taste is very intense and for sure not everybody's thing. The chicken salat was huge but there was not enough dressing and the chicken was very dry. The liver plate was very dry, we ended up asking for more sauce (we had native speakers with us)... More

an amazing nomad menu, but also something for everyone - from a caesar salad to 'spirit of the man' made of 'horse organ'... this was a well run, clean place and good for safely getting to know the array of mongolian food options

There were six of us and we were into trying Mongolian foods and I think we found the right place in Modern Nomads. We've tried Nomads Cuisine which is according to the waiter is good for 2-3pax. We were surprised that we we've only finish half of it and we were full already. They serve good local beers also.
