Busy but good food. Beef, chicken, pollock, spicy sausage, pork, mussels, calamari, Krab (spelled just like it was at the place), andd on Wed/ Fri shrimp - variety of meats available! Large selection of vegetables along with noodles, sauces and toppings! All you can eat for the main dish $12.99 + drinks, apps and desserts. Well worth it.

It's neat to go here and kind of make your own dishes with as much veggies, meat or noodles you want. You can whip up your own sauce or follow their guidelines for something more traditional. The only thing really I had as a complaint was in order to cook the food faster they chop it up and keep it... More

I did not know what to expect when I was asked to join friends and family at Huhot Mongolian Grill in West Des Moines. While I had eaten Chinese food before, I had never experienced Huhot or anything like it! We were welcomed at the front door and promptly seated. Since we had never been there before, our waiter very... More

I ordered two appetizers, the Crab Rangoon was scrumptious, the egg rolls, nothing special. The Hot Sour Soup was virtually uneatable. Meat selection was unappetizing to me. Beef & chicken looked thin & dried out and really unrecognizable as either. They had the fake seafood stuff you can buy in the store if you like fish made to pretend to... More

Once upon a time this was my favorite place to eat in the whole city. After my last 3 trips that is no longer the case. How are you out of certain vegetables when there is a Hy vee 3 blocks away. Your wait staff is standing around doing nothing they have time to run. Complete disappointment get with it... More

I was dragged kicking and screaming the first time to HuHot, but never again. It is by far my favoite place to eat. One can choose the type of meal they want, heavy on the meat, or lots of veggies. Maybe spicy or light on the heat with lots of tang. Can be healthy or just pile it on and... More

If you're wanting great food this is the place to go. My mom and I come here often and are regularly impressed. The food, service, and atmosphere are all outstanding. The flavors are exciting and you can create your own concoction that is unique to you.

I was introduced to Mongolian BBQ in the Air Force and couldn't find anything when I came home. I was thrilled when the Hu Hot opened. Love the variety of ingredients and sauces. If you don't like it you can go back and try again. It's a fun, friendly place and delicious. I recommend going for lunch. And when I... More

First time to a Mongolian buffet. Wife and I went with the daughter and grandson who has been there before. Daughter led us through the line and explained the process. Enjoyed making my own sauce. Went through the buffet a couple of times so experimented with the different sauces and ingredients. Probably could have eaten somewhere oriental cheaper but the... More
