The food is nice and it's a fun way to eat - order a base soup and then other ingredients to go into it. Better in big groups because you can afford to add lots of delicious add ons. I probably wouldn't go alone.

Individual hot pot with induction in front of you, so you can cook as you want. Regular and classical ingredients with a lot of inspiration from Chinese style hot pot. The hot stock was not good. I had to stand and go the bar 3 times to find a waiter. Anyway it's quite common in Mongolia. They have VIP room... More

When I was pregnant (and back in the states) I craved The Bull! Their hotpots are top notch. I ate there during a stay in 2012. We had a large party of about 30 people. Service was excellent and the food was delicious.

Delicious dinner for a reasonable price, if you like Asian hot pots, this is definitely a place to go.

The Bull 2 is much nicer than the Bull 1. It's maybe 800 meters away, close to Grand Plaza. Good choice also for vegetarians. Drinks are expensive and no tea for free which surprized me. Good place to go in winter times. It's a popular place for families and all kinds if events,good to reserve a table at weekends.

Based on these reviews, as a neophyte to UB went to The Bull. Service was forgetful, hopeless. The broth was the blandest ever, even the sauces unexpectedly pretty mild. The meat (beef and lamb) - superb and a veggie combo plate - lovely. There must be better places.

This was my second visit. It is a great way to eat . You choose a broth, both visits they have been out of mushroom broth, go for the beef. Then decide what you want to cook and eat. Each time the large mushroom plate and the chicken, plus the beef plate. Make sure you order the cucumbers. They are... More

The Bull is the perfect place to break for lunch on a winter Saturday when you have conquered shopping crowds, and navigated the icy Ulaanbaatar footpaths without serious injury. Whether you like your hotpot spicy or bland, lean or fatty, carnivorous or vegan, since you cook your meal yourself, you choose, and if you don't like it have only yourself... More
