Mongolian style eatery with three locations in Vancouver, Richmond and Langley. Select your ingredients and have them cooked on a flat grill in front of you. Pay by weight; guess the cost and get your meal free.
I love knowing what ingredients are in my food! Here, you can do just that. The food is fantastic and stir fried right in front of you. If you are with a big group, plan to be there for a while but if you have time to sit, chat and relax - this is a great place to be.
its a great racket to trap tourists or people who just dont know better, this place is incredibly expensive. go to davie street and find yourself a mongolian place (between thurlow and bute is a good one) and you will get a good take out plate for 5.95, or all you can eat at dinner for 7. living near there i had been eating mongo for a long time, went to mongolie grill and for drastically less then i usually eat (small bowl to start) it cost me 27.50, what a joke. i will never ever go there again and will laugh at anyone who does because your getting hosed, it may be tasty and "neat" but just find it somewhere that doesn't cost you an arm and a leg, you will thank yourself later, if you do go to the one on davie give the chef a tip, a nice guy whos family runs the place.
This was my first time at any Mongolie Grill. The ambiance was very nice, our server was very attentive...superb job! I stayed on the conservative side for the meats, and tried some of their suggested sauce combinations. It was fantastic! My friends loved their meal too. My dish came out to about $8 before taxes, my friend's was close to $11, my other friend's dish was about $14. I used my entertainment coupon (2 for 1 entree, the complimentary entree had to be under $12). I was expecting the server to use my $8 meal as the complimentary entree, but she gave the $11 meal as the complimentary one! It was very nice of her to do that. Healthy food with great ambiance and quality! Will definitely visit again!
One of the best places to eat in the city, if you don't like your meal, it's nobody's fault but yours as you picked it! You may like banana chips, garlic and tofu, but that doesn't necessarily mean they are going to taste good together, served with rice! Use some common sense with your choices; prices are not high, despite what others say, I am a big guy with a healthy appetite and $14-$15 fills me up every time. Outstanding!!!
The sign on the door says no MSG but look the owner in the eye and ask if his cooks add MSG to stuff like fried rice. I won't eat at either location because the food is overpriced crap. Mongolians are never known for gourmet food and these two restaurants aren't even Mongolian.
Create your own meal Great!
Price is dependant on how much you eat, can't go wrong. Need a light snack, only pay a little. Want a feast, your choice!
Been here several times as well and the food is always great. How could it not be, you're the chef! Vegetarian dishes are also lower priced.
Food is fresh and ready to go at any time. For the reviewer below, I'm not sure but I don't recall the last family retaurant I went to that had camels and a sunset around the walls and bows and arrows in it, yikes!
Feel like a change from the every day and want to have a choice of what goes into your meal instead of having some generic box of product slid onto a plate, try it out!
I've been here several times, I use it for lunch about once every few months. At lunchtime it's never busy, so the service is top notch.
This is a departure from traditional fare, there is a buffet style ingredients that includes many veggies, then a good section of meats, and another of sauces. Everything is raw initially, you collect the food you want in a bowl, hand it to the cook, guess the dollar value - if you are dead on, you get your next meal free! - then the cook weighs it, prints out your dollar amount and cooks it along with 5 or 6 other dishes on a grill in front of you.
Rice / wraps / soup is provided to everyone in addition to the portion that you choose at the buffet.
Ingredients are always top notch condition.
The only problem I have witnessed is the fact that many patrons have no idea what foods and sauces go well together, so they end up with a Heinz57 style meal that isn't as good as it could be.
