“Too easy to not get what you want.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

You pay for your meal based on weight. You choose your own stuff and sauces. It seems to me that many things have been saturated in liquid to increase the weight. Also, not a great deal if you are choosing more veggies as the price per weight must cover more expensive things like scallops etc. Compared to eating in other Asian places it worked out to be an expensive meal.

“WAAAAY too expensive for vegetarians”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Mongolie Grill type places seem to be cheap everywhere else except Calgary. Vancouver, Toronto, the USA no problem it's about $7-$9 for a veggie stir fry.

Here they weigh the food, even though they give a small discount for no meat, it still cost $20 a plate EACH for just vegetables for dinner. There's just no reason to ever come back because for that price you can get a nice meal at a Thai or Indian restaurant with much more ambiance, flavor and value. It's not like it's organic or anything either!

I don't like the pay by weight system, pay by bowl size would be better like every other place does.

Make your own meal!
You get what you pick, if you don't like it, it's because YOU messed it up.
I recommend this place to everyone.

Very good food and accomodating for allergies. Good selection of choices and I would recommend this place to anyone who would like to choose your own fresh ingredients.

“Never again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

We won't go back to this restaurant. If you want to pay ridiculous prices for a self serve, cafeteria atmosphere, try this place. Trick is, you don't know how much your paying and they can charge whatever they want. My son's meal was $30 and my husband $18 - this wasn't a ton of food and both were definitely NOT worth the cost". If you like semi decent value for your money go somewhere else.
