This was an Amazing experience for myself and my husband. Neither of us have ever been to a dinning place such as this Awesome staff the array of choices outstanding. there is no wrong or right way to choose your foods to be cooked on a grill 'in front of you'. this gives fresh off the grill a whole new...

My family decided to go to this place, because for one I have never been, and this was my daughter's birthday. I had no idea what was in store. First you gather and this food in your bowl, as much as you can. You then pick the spices and sauces you want and take it to these amazing guys who... More

I didn't think this place was worth $15 for a bowl of noodles, veggies and whatever protein you pick. You need to be careful what you put in your bowl, too. If you pick one of the sauces you're not sure of it could give a rather unpleasant after-taste and spoil the whole bowl of food. It was not a... 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.

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... 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

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
