Yes to making your own dish. It's fun and a good selection of ingredients. Get a bowl think of what you enjoy move to the sauces -bang your creation is ready to move to the round doughnut shaped grill for cooking. This is fun to watch as they flip and chop your food. Try it and you'll go back. Enjoy.... More

My family and I, (13 of us) ate here right before Christmas and really enjoyed our visit! We have eaten at other Mongolian grill style restaurants and haven't been as satisfied as we were with our visit to huhot. The selection of meats and vegetables were great, and the sauces were fantastic. I personally couldn't get enough of the mussels... More

The choices they have to choose from is awesome!! Lots of meat, veggies and 3 kinds of noodles. They have lots of sauces to choose from. You can combine your own or they have suggestions for you to try. They also have menu items if you don't want to do the grill. They have chicken nuggets for kids.

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
