“Great Mongolian BBQ place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

They have a great selection of meat cuts that you pile up along with the sauces you like as well as noodles. Great family run restaurant and they really take care of you. This is on El Camino Real and is easy to find.

“Nice restaurant lot of foods”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

I don't know about authentic Mongolian. But Mongolian BBQ I ate they make same way. Foods are very good. You choose or they will help you to decide. I went there at dinner and I really enjoyed their food. You select your meet ( chicken/beef/pork) and vegetables and ingredients and they will cook it. If you can't choose they will come and help you to decide. Great place to eat.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2008

This place is my favorite Mongolian BBQ restaurant. It's a little bit of a hole-in-a-wall as it doesn't draw much attention. (Though there is a large sign in the parking lot that caught me and my bf's eye when we were aimlessly driving around looking for somewhere to eat.) The food is cheap and good. To start off, you fill one bowl with meat and the other bowl with veggies/noodles, so that the chefs can cook the meat first and add the veggies later so it comes out just right in the end. So good! And if you're a newbie or not very culinary-inclined, there's a nice easy-to-follow chart with a suggestion for how to combine the different sauces to create a base. As for the warming cart with pre-cooked stuff like egg rolls, potstickers, etc., I usually don't bother. It's all about the BBQ, baby! Plus those are nothing to write home about anyway.

What really makes this place stand out for me, though, is the environment. The service is attentive but most of all, the place has a very sunshiney-feel. I love how the walls are covered with photos and messages of happy customers and their comments. Seriously, they're covered. It's not just one little bulletin board. And there are a lot of happy customers! The whole place fills me with good vibes, so that combined with the good food, makes me a happy customer too.

A great place to have good food, fill one's belly, be treated and waited on well, have your pictures taken, add "thank you" in your own mother tongue to the restaurant's impressive existing collection.
