We drop by every year for the fun of it...also tasty and plentiful. You pick up a bowl and fill it with your choice of frozen thin-sliced meat(s), sprouts, and shredded veggies - peppers, onion, cabbage, etc. Then down the row of sauce bowls with a spoonful of this, two scoops of that, and a dip of the other. Once you get the hang of it, you can tailor the flavor (and sodium level) precisely to you taste. Then pass the bowl to the cook inside the glass-front cooking room who dumps what you've assembled on a large gas-fired "shield" where it sizzles as he flips the ingredients with huge chopsticks. A moment later it's back into the bowl and ready for your final sauce choices. Side dishes include all you want of spring rolls, rice, rice chips, and soup, as well. Deserts available. Beverage service is adequate. Decor isn't much, but fits the format. Convenient to the theatres and China Town. We'll do it again when next in Melbourne.

Or at least their victory parties.

I had gone to the Sydney based restaurant in 2009, upon hearing that there was a location in Melbourne, I made sure to go there one night.

25 dollars for an all you can eat feast is not something to turn down--you pick your meats, veggies and sauces, and they cook it in front of you.

The service was professional and amazing.

oh dear....where to begin with this place!
Hmmm....the place is located upstairs and on ur way up u start to get that feeling 'that this is not ginna be good' - but u have already made the committment - how bad could it be right? The decor is a crude mix of thai/balinese/chinese 'nick nacks' that dont really work well at all - and the dining tables are more suited to some kind of 1990's food court and the tiolets are possibly one of the worst u r ever likely to see. The concept of making ur own mongolian dish is really quite novel - and the food actually tastes pretty good. The guy cooks all ur ingredients on a massive 'mongolian shield' hotplate with a pair of large chopsticks - it takes about 1 minute to cook up! The staff are not mongolian either so dont even think its all authentic - they are mandarin speaking chinese - kind of a bit of a let down. This is the kind of place that could be really good if they gave it a makeover and a good clean up - i wanted to like it but ..... it was pretty damn awful !
