Choose What You Like From A Large Variety & Watch It Cook

Go vegetarian or take as many meats as you like from a large variety of raw ingredients and then choose your sauce to put with it or spice it to your liking. It just takes a few minutes to cook on their super hot grille. I agree with a previous review that the rice isn't very good so you may... read more

Not real please with the appearance of the meat and seafood station. Lots of foods cross contamination happening for patrons food falling out of the bowls which are to small. There were several broken eggs in the egg bin on the vegetable station. Was very surprise to see crawfish on the bar, so out of curiosity I go them just... More

What a great place to dine out! Choose you own ingredients and let someone cook them for you. Wash it down with a huge ranges range of beers - samples available before buying.

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

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... 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

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
