Concept is Mongolian BBQ style, so you pick your vegetables, protein, sauce and they cook it up and serve it to you. We've been to several of these stirfry concepts, but they have the most variety of sauces, and plant protein options including 2 types...of veat. I like the vindaloo sauce, daughter likes a variety of soy and teriyaki, wife likes black bean and garlic. Great place if you have a group with a variety of food preferences. EnjoyMore

Healthy, filling stir fry concept. Excellent service. Would highly recommend for a fresh dinner option.

I went here with my adult son as it’s his favorite restaurant. This time we were pretty disappointed. The price for a one bowl dinner has gone up to $14; luckily we had a BOGO coupon. Second, service was frustratingly slow. We waited for every...phase of the meal. They looked to be short-staffed. Who wants to come back with that much waiting? I’m starting to understand why the downtown and Lakeview locations in Chicago have closed. Previously I’d have given it 4 stars, but not now.More

Mongolian style bbq Place. This is a chain but quality is good as is the value. Something for everyone. Planning on my next visit.

Don't kid yourself...even though the gimmick here lets you combine your choice of what they call a protein to have a "chef" cook with a bowlful of veggies and starches you select from a food bar, this is an overpriced fast food place that'll disappoint...anyone who expects otherwise. The scallops and shrimp we tried for our protein were canned quality and by the time it was all fried together with the veggies and noodles, it was a mush mess with none of the crispness of a stir-fry. Although the seasonings sounded good, they were Americanized bland and didn't add anything to complement or flavor the dish. Maybe this makes it good for kids, but adults might as well just buy a frozen prepared grocery store item and microwave it at home. One small lunch bowl for $9.99 (dinner $14.99) made it a very poor value. Only plus is the patron can potentially eat more healthfully than at a burger joint while the separate grills can accommodate carnivores, omnivores, vegetarians and vegans.More

Flat Top is not a favorite as it use to be. Service has declined in everyway BUT the chef's stir frying my food. Bowls are small, you have to choose a protien without seeing it & the portions all around have gotten smaller. In the...last two visits my expectations have not been met.More

We opted to try something different and found this healthy restaurant on a walk through Evanston. The sauces add excellent flavor and variety. Our server was kind and helpful, assisting with navigating the many choices and options. My only reservation would be that for vegans,...a larger bowl could be provided. Not really sure why this restaurant has a bar since the focus is certainly the food. Highly recommended.More

My wife and I were going to an Indian restaurant for dinner but we walked by Flat Top Grill and we had to eat here. This is similar to BD Mongolian BBQ but it is slightly different. The flat bread they make over the hot...grill is so delicious, I can eat 3 easily. The restaurant staffs were good but the manager was great. He was very friendly and attentive. We will go back here again!More

The food was really good. We didn’t see the rice, as it was in pots at the front of the buffet. Should have piled the veggies up higher, and added a lot more mushrooms and broccoli... they cooked down more than I expected. Look over...the entire buffet before you start, and taste the sauces before deciding. Service was ok. The server wasn’t as attentive as I would have preferred, but we got everything we wanted. Really wish we had something like this at home!More
