If you feel passionately for mutton and horse milk, then this the country for you. I heard the Mongolian hotpot came from the soldiers who boiled mutton in their helmets in between pillaging most of the known world. Supposedly Mongolian BBQ came from frying the mutton on their shields, I don't know if this is true, but it beggars belief... More

Had a great dinner yesterday with the whole family. Food was real, atmosphere was warm, music finished it off. No need for more words

Great views over the City, with some of the best service I have encountered in any of the Ulaanbaatar Restaurants. Food was well presented and tasty, we had the soup and Foie Gras for an appetiser , the Soup was extremely good, more like a Laska, while the foie gras with caramelised onion was fantastic. Meanwhile the mains being the... More

This place enjoys fantastic views over the city of Ulaanbattar and for that reason alone was well worth the visit! The food was average but to be very honest, the only decent meals we have had in Ulaanbattar were at the Verandah Restaurant nearby and the Prime Grille in the Best Western Tuushin! The decor in Monet is very tasteful... More

My partner and I celebrated a special occasion at Monet last Friday night, and were overwhelmingly disappointed. The view over Sukhbaatar Square as the sun sets is stunning, and the services much better than at most other restaurants in Mongolia, but that is where the fine experience ends. The serves are tiny, for instance, the Seared scallops salad, mixed cress,... More

Formal atmosphere lightened up by the beautiful views from the top of Central Tower. The food is good and presented very nicely.

In general the quality of food in UB is average and after so many visits you lower your expectations. The one thing I get annoyed off is bad service in the city. Monet in that sense is the place were I experienced service which was top notch and actually the food is good. I don't mind paying the prices as... More

The Monet has an excellent "Business Lunch" menu which I, along with my friends, have taken advantage of many time and always thoroughly enjoyed the meals. The value for money has been excellent. Fantastic views of Ulaanbaatar. Evening meals are on the expensive side but the food has been good. Service is attentive.

Went to Monet for a special event. The set menu read like one would expect for a high priced restaurant. Unfortunately there was a galactic gap between the actual food and written menu. I am not sure if it was expectations but the food was bad. Caprese salad was preset on the table, the fresh mozzarella died and went to... More
