Great place for a diner when you want to assemble your own meal. The concept of a Mongolian Barbecue is that you make a choice of all the vegetables, meat and/or fish and then the cooks will fry this on a hot plate with your favorite dressing. Excellent service and fluent in English. We went twice this week (not only... More

Very interesting restaurant with Asian food, or something what should appear like an Asian food. I choose the food from menu, interesting taste but not exactly something what one should not leave without. But one thing I need to surely mention. Absolutely friendly and helpful staff and friendly service.

Despite the rating, I have plenty of nice things to say about Mongo's. Friendly staff, clean place, nice selection for the barbecue. But all in all it's just not worth the price of the meal. Even if you go with fish frist and then switch to meat you still get a very onesided meal. The a la carte was limited... More

The food is not the cheapest, but to be honest after a starter and main, I was stuffed, so I feel it was definitely worth it. We managed to negotiate the menu though there wasn't an English version (but that's our problem not the restaurants). I chose the safe option of the Tapas for one, and theThai Red Curry, and...

The place is nice, cozy and relatively clean, little bit hidden from the main shopping area. The food is tasty though neither indonesian malaysian nor thai or chinese, it is a mix of all. If you like asian cosines and are not looking for authenticity food then you will enjoy it here. The price range is between €10-15

The Mongo's in Essen is one of the chains' restaurants, they are all more or less the same. We regularly visit the restaurant because of the variety of different vegetables and meet/fishes. So everybody can choose whatever she/he likes. The service in Essen in usually very friendly, food was tasty- will come back

I had dinner with a group of 12. Mongo's menu started with a nice soup, not special but OK. The wok concept is good. You choose your sauce and ingredients and then they serve it at your table. So not long standing around waiting for them to cook it. The Thai Red Curry sauce was great. The Tandoori sauce was... More

A decent restaurant with Asian cuisine near the city center of Essen. Nice combination options of various meat and vegetable dishes. Front cooking. Attractive prices. Polite staff.

Description
Mongolian system. The mix of golden yellow and dark wood stands out in a positive way. So delicious that there are even queues at the buffet. Important: who is really hungry will always leave here sated. The meat selection is very courageous. You can taste game meat from each of the world's national parks. From kangaroo to zebra, it's all here. Super for a nice evening with friends. Mixed guests including youngsters from the creative industries. The staff are helpful and bring a large selection of wines.
