First Time at this place

BD's was really good. I have had better fried rice but I really enjoyed the fact that I was able to pick out my dish and make it my own. The only thing that I didn't like about this place is that the chefs didn't seem that friendly. One of them wouldn't even smile, and when they spoke it was... read more

This Mongolian Grill restaurant has so many choices of meat, fish and seafood along with vegetables and sauces! It is fantastic for someone with special dietary needs - they even gave me the ingredients list to check out the sauces and offered to cook my dish in the back because of allergies. The manager and waitstaff were super helpful with... More

The place isn't horrible but it is so expensive for very mediocre food. There are MANY places that would be a much better use of $15 per person. To top that off, they offer fried rice in a rather sneaky way to make you think it is complimentary but it is actually $5. We did not bite on that and... More

First time in this chain, but will try again. Server was extremely helpful explaining the concept and process. Pick your protein from about 20 choices, move on to vegetables, again pile it on then make your own spice and sauce combofrom sweet nsour to killer hot! Then you take it to a large circular grille with 8 grillers putting on... More

I have been here many times and I always search for a bd's when I travel (which is a lot) but most of them are out of business I find. :( Happy this one is still here. The food is always fresh and delicious. They usually have good soup and salad to add, drinks are good, appetizers are usually good.... More

I was looking forward to eating here, cause it had been several years, and I remembered it being a good experience. Well, not so much this trip. Most, but not all of the veggies seemed fresh. The brown rice was real blah and dry. For the price, I expected better.

We've been to a fair number of these stir fry restaurants in the past and there wasn't much that made this one stand out. They do have a huge beer selection and allow you to purchase a 64 oz growler to take home. My biggest issue was there isn't a separate bowl for the raw meat and there aren't "taster"... More

I love the fact that I can get good vegetarian food here, while my husband can have all the meat he wants, and it's pretty healthy fare. It's good food at a relatively decent price (costs us about $10/person). The drawback is that it's very loud inside, so hard to talk to one another. On top of that, the wait... More

The price is a little high, so we do not go as frequently. You assemble your food and they cook it while you wait. The food or sauces do not seem to vary as much as they used to when they first opened and 2 of the managers should probably not be in management because they are not outgoing, do... More
