Nice buffet with a decent selection of salad and mains (cooked in front of you and ready-made). Desserts was lacking, with only one shady options though. Can get noisy with a lot of larger groups and tours going through.

The food and service was quite good. A bit noisy because of the people there, but otherwise not a bd place to eat at a reasonable price.

Not to impressed. OK food to a little expensive price. You can probably find something better if you looking for Mongolian food.

This place was recommended by our Mongolian guide as well as another local. Its a walking distance from chingiis square, the ambience inside was great too, made perfect by comfy cushion seats and warmly litted surroundings. The warm mongolian milk tea (served with mongolian bisquit to be dipped into) and the hot stone lamb stew was great. The lamb shank... More

Fresh food served buffet style. A little like a Teppanyaki style buffet - you choose the fresh produce and the chef cooks it for you. Or you can have the hot buffet choices. Yummy! Asian style food.

We ate there once, for dinner. I had a tasty vegetarian noodle dish and my husband had a very good fruit salad.

We were looking for something light at Modern Nomads so I ordered the fruit salad which was very good. Fresh lettuce and a nice variety of fresh fruit, just the thing I wanted. Other meals people were having also looked tasty.

We shared the ox tongue appetizer (good) and the Highwayman - a mixed grill of mutton, beef, horse and pork served with sautéed veggies. Meat was all quite tough. They had local draft beer which we enjoyed. The Mongolian food at tourist camps has been much better. Prices are pretty reasonable.

Although the atmosphere was not that great the food (for which we came) was very good. For vegetarians as well as meatlovers this restaurant is a must in order to experience the mongolian kitchen.

The food was average, the service was very slow. 45 minutes to get food. The English translation is incorrect on the menu. I ordered what was translated as lamb, and it ended up being Mutton. I do not eat mutton. Everyone else had already eaten their meal and I had already waited 45 minutes for a incorrect meal, and ended... More
