Great Hot Pot Restaurant

Great hot pot restaurant. Very nice interiors, excellent service, outstanding quality of food and ingredients for hot pot, with meat being especially their forte. Well thought through wine list. All in all a solid choice for an extended gastronomic experience with friends or business partners.

i love eating there when it's freezing cold outside. Usually hot pot is very hot place where everyone boils their own soups in pots. This is good place to go with your family or friends. I had a table arrangement incident with waitress once there, that's why I.m deducting one star here. Other than that, it's nice place.

Went to the bull many times with friends and colleagues and always enjoyed it. Especially when you have vegetarians and meat eaters in a group there is great choice for both.

Nice selection. There is 3 bulls in the city. Most of the time very busy in the week-end afternoon, you better come early otherwise you might need to wait. However the stock is not really strong and what is called spicy soup is not spicy, just 2 chilles floating on the top doesn't make spicy. Service has improve compare to... More

This review is long over due, we went her on a Mongolian winter evening and it was exactly what we needed! We pretty much ordered everything and the bill still was around $100. I highly recommend this place, great staff, delicious foods and a wonderful atmosphere.

You can choose meat, vegetables, noodles, and sources all as you want. Definitely interesting and also quite tasty (not a taste of heaven but yet it's still fine)

I can hardly say that I am a fan of soups, however this place is a nice exception. Hot Pot theme comes from Japan and Korea an it gives you an opportunity to become a creator of your own soup. Especially after heavy Friday night :) A wide choice of different food components suits requirements of any demanding customer. And... More

Great spot for a hot pot dinner. Romantic seating in private booths. Each booth is equipped with a button which you can press for quick service. Easy walking distance from main tourist attractions.

Mongolians don't eat like this. The Mongolian hot pot served here comes by way of China. But what you get is fantastic. We ordered the set package for groups and it comes with individual cooking pots of broth, fried rice and dishes of dipping sauce, and about twenty different items to cook in it - dumplings. eight different kinds of...
