This is a great place if you're looking for some hearty Mongolian food. The lamb leg and the so called "cowboy" dish, which was sweet braised beef ribs, we're both excellent. Would recommend it.

This is an acceptable place to eat next to the Hotel Nine, and part of the same chain. The Greek salad is a salad, but not really Greek. The stuffed chicken dish was fairly tasty. The dark beer was a colored lager, not an ale, but a little better than the usual Mongolian beers. Unfortunately, we had to wait over... More

Want a taste of Mongolian food, this might be the place. Set menu plates are available as are dishes served family style. Mutton stew was served in a bucket . Sides come with and complete the meal. Explore the cuisine while you're here.

The resto has nice atmosphere and free wifi. The foods are good with variety. It takes sometime until it gets served, as happens many time when you order food in UB at least :)

This is a modern restaurant offering a variety of traditional Mongolian dishes and some international options Probably the strong point are the meals to share that are a bit more labor intensive We chose one of those ( one hour preparation time ; went out for the hour and came back just in time ) Everything was delicious and cooked...

We have visited Modern Nomads twice on our stay in UB, and it was definitely a good choice. Food is really tasty (including veg options of traditional Mongolian cuisine - a kind of oxymoron, but they've managed it well), and the service is OK. Prices are fine too, even for UB standards. If you want to taste a good traditional... More

A group of us had what we were told was a traditional Mongolian dinner at one of the Modern Nomads restaurants in Ulaan Baatar, not sure which one. We started with a salad then had vegetable soup then a dish called "United Mongolia" which was a large plate with 4 squares that had 3 types of dumpling, one of which... More

We read some reviews about the "smell" of some of the dishes but after we tried, it was ok and the restaurant offers variety of cuisine choices. Centrally located with nice ambient.

The restaurant with of a traditional Mongolian cuisine. Nice atmosphere, service is kind of slow, it is a bug restaurant and not too many waiters, so one needs to find a waitress himself. The meals were ok, but nothing special. I had tried better !ongolian food in other places in town.

Thank inaite
