Description: Mongo's is pure cross-culture and the most extraordinary catering experience for explorers and individualists. Create your dishes as you like. Always new, always different. In the Mongo's you are the head of the kitchen!! With our all-you-can-eat-classic "Mongo's Total" you can taste and combine endlessly! Combine to your heart's content the ingredients at our buffet, the Mongo's Food Market, for your individual meal as often as you want. Choose to each course one of our diversified home-made Mongo's marinades: from European mild to Asian fiery hot, pure vegan or vegetarian, always gluten-free or free of glutamate - it's your choice: there is something for everyone! Our chefs prepare your selection quick and gentle right in front of your eyes. And shortly after that your meal will be served at your table with a portion of rice. Alternatively to Mongo's Total you can also choose à la carte from our different Asian main dishes. And in many restaurants we also offer Mongo's Select for guests with less hunger endless tasting, but you only pay what you consume.

We visited Mongos with friends who live in Essen and been there before so they recommend the place. We were very pleased with the level of service in this restaurant. Great food, nice atmosphere, little a bit noisy but food makes up for all the noise. Definitely would make a reservation especially if you going there after 6pm. Will come back to this place again when we back in Essen.

If you want something different this is the place, as suggested go with an empty stomach, the food is plentiful. You choose a special sauce to have your food cooked in, then go up to the counter and help yourself to whatever you want, veg, noodles, the choice is large, then add your fish or meat of choice, from regular chicken or beef to zebra, crocodile, kangaroo. The chefs then cook it for you and it is brought to your table.... You can go up as many times as you like or just once the choice is your. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, I would definately go again.

Wanted to go here since I heard about it and I was not disappointed. The staff were very accommodating and let us stay until the very, very end without asking us to politely hurry up. The novel way of ordering was at first slightly confusing, but eventually got the hang of it. Advice: go with an empty stomach and order the "all you can eat option" You will not regret it. And you do need to book in advance, this place does get full. Also the wines were quite dear!

Some could be offended by the interesting choice of meats on offer (eg Zebra) but the food was very tasty and well cooked. Waitress was very helpful and even suffered my very bad German with a patient smile.
