It’s fun. There’s a great buffet that has lots of ingredients – vegetables of different kinds (9 when we visited, including cabbage, onion, bell pepper, sprouts, corn, carrots, potatoes, celery, green onion and more), pineapple, noodles, different kinds of meat, chicken and fish – more than you can imagine – garnishes and nuts and another selection of sauces and condiments.
You go around and put your choices on a plate, and create your own seasoning in another bowl, take it all to the griddle – a huge round one with a hole in the middle so all the remains can be scraped straight into the fire underneath. Watch the experienced staff toss it with two sword-like tools – and take it to your table. Go for as many rounds as you want. There’s a pot of rice and other side-dishes (a good variety) and a good enough salad bar.

The place is not fancy despite the price. The decor is more like a fast food place than a restaurant, but service was good and quick for drinks and clearing the table.

It is a good place because it is so flexible. Anybody would find food that suits him or her here, nobody leaves hungry. It is also a good way to slowly and gently get acquainted with the local cuisine in its very softened way…

We ate here once. It was clean and delicious! There are plenty of options for vegetarians, pescatarians, and meat-eaters because you can pick what you want. The stir fry bar had fresh veggies, meats, tofu, soy meat, shrimp, noodles, etc. After picking what you want (including your sauce), you go to the stir fry bar and the cooks stir fry your meal. There was also a salad bar and some ready-made dishes. We were very satisfied with everything. Many tourists and Mongolians were at the restaurant when we went. I recommend this place of you're looking for a more western style restaurant (it said it was the first western restaurant branch in Mongolia) with good, quick food.

Not sure how authentically Mongolian this concept is, although the soups, salads and buffet mains were similar to food we ate in the Ger camps. Great range of meats, veges and sauces to choose from and then hand over to be stir-fried by sword -wielding warrior chefs. Ultimately, it is as tasty or as good value as you make it.

We went here for lunch yesterday and enjoyed the food and experience. The quality of the food was excellent; the service was very good. Cute (and suggestive) tee shorts worn by the young staff.
