“Not bad. Bit overpriced though.”
Reviewed December 13, 2011

Unfortunately my other half really likes this place and I get dragged along.

29TL for a visit to the buffet is a bit steep I think. Especially considering you get given small bowls.

On about four separate occasions I have asked for the chicken tikka masala and everytime I get one of two answers: "Sorry, we don't have this at the moment" or "You need to wait 35 minutes". What's the deal with this item on the menu?!

“Go For The Mongolian Barbeque”
Reviewed October 9, 2011

The name is Go Mongo and the map location is wrong it is opposite the Sudiye Hotel. We had a team dnner here. The principle is you fill your bowl full of the meat you like and add whatever sauce and it is cooked on a hot plate and brought back to you. Mine was delicious with a nice chilli kick to it, Others who had the a la carte dishes were less happy, the restaurant gets a bit schizophrenic with its combinatons and tries to do an indian twist on some dishes and chinese on others and it does no really work. I'd stick to the basics here and have the barbeque. The starters were not great I'd skip them and have unlimited trips to the barbequ instead

The name should be "Go Mongo". It's a Mongolian restaurant. Food is delicious.

“Shopping Mall Restaurant”
Reviewed September 8, 2010

Situated inside Istinye Park, one of the fanciest shopping malls of Istanbul, this Mongolian restaurant offers a non-mainstream cuisine experience. Modern decoration differentiated with small Central Asian details is nice. The menu is rich, but only Mongolian/Chinese meals based. Wok open buffet is spectacular. The restaurant has also a terrace which makes it preferred by smoker visitors of the shopping mall. I can recommend the place only if you're already at Istinye Park, otherwise, it does not worth the special visit unless you have been to all nice restaurants of Istanbul already.
