We have been there with our kids. The food is delicious, as well as the atmosphere. The prices are high.

Staying in the Gobi's Kelso Hotel provided me with the opportunity to walk to the Bull Restaurant. I never had eaten at a hot pot restaurant and had no idea of how to order. As a solo diner I was seated quickly and attempted to look around to figure out the appropriate method of ordering and dining. Fortunately a server... More

I have already been back to this restaurant two times, in the last week. The service is prompt, friendly and professional. The food is absolutely delicious and fresh. The hot pots are delicious, with a selection of different broths. Everyone has their own individual induction cooktop.

You can get set menus, I shared that with people I met at the hostel. We were four and took two menus. It was plenty (a bit too much maybe haha). Everyone gets their own pan to cook their own food. Quality is good, service good as well, but the language barrier is present as they do not speak English... More

Chinese / Asian Steamboat or HotPot. Variety of broth selection and good selection of meat, vegetables, dumplings , noodles etc to go with the hotpot. The chili served is pretty good ( and spicy ) and goes well with the food. Big servings, reasonably priced and fun for all to cook their own food at their own pace. Just like... More

We went on the recommendation of several UB residence and were not disappointed. A nice selections of broths to cook in, including Chilli, Tomato, Beef etc. Great selection of meats, fish, and vegetables, mushrooms, and home made noodles. We ordered too much, the portions were large. Our waiter was helpful even though he spoke little English, it was not a... More

The cook your own meat and vegetable on your own hotplate was great. Tender pieces of meat and vegetables that you cooked in your own pot.

Together with a friend I visited The Bulll restaurant with quite high expectations (cause of the high ranking), but it was a disappointing experience. Most popular option is to take a hot pot and cook the Mongolian food for yourself. Not that easy really. The staff showed no interest in explaining how to do so and were serving slow.

Thank Koos v
