My wife and I were visiting Dublin for a few nights and came across this little gem of a restaurant by chance whilst in the Temple Bar area of the city. It truly was a unique dining experience we both thoroughly enjoyed, I like the option of an all you can eat buffet, not for greed, but for the opportunity... More

Popped in for lunch yesterday and had a super lunch, you choose what you want and it is cooked before your eyes. Really tasty and nutritious and great value for money at only 6.95 euro each. The staff were lovely too. A hidden gem in temple bar. Will visit again when I am back in Dublin.

Every visit to Dublin now includes a visit to the Mongolian BBQ. There are additional hints now to help with your choice of sauces and spices and I have to say this helped. Also, being Vegetarian the big bowl of Tofu is a great choice. What was already very good just got better.

Totally cool, best buy and so different from other choose-what-you-eat restaurants. The onyl problem is that you can mix so much stuff that you will probably choose too many. It is busy during lunch time. And only minus is that it is a bit food-smelly due to bad ventilation.

This seems like a good idea. Choose all the ingredients you like and get the chef to cook them. Chose the noodles, then the vegetables, then went to choose the meat, but found the chicken frozen so solid that it couldn't even be separated. When this was pointed out to the chef, he said it was ok he was going... More

My husband and I hadn't visited in at least 15 years and really enjoyed returning with our 3 children. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was extremely fresh and the food areas were kept clean and well stocked. Considering the age of the building it has been maintained well. I was impressed that the cashier asked first if...

I just dont get this place. If you didn't know much about Asian food I think it would be a disaster. For instance my mother tried to put together massaman sauce with rice noodles and five spice, which would have resulted in a fairly disgusting combination if i hadn't have steered her away from this choice! Even if the flavour... More

Mongolian Barbeque is the name given a method of cooking used by Genghis Khan and his troops in the 13th century, when they would cook meat on their shields over an open fire! Now we use a cast iron grill over an open flame, and you get to choose your ingredients. We have a great range of meat and vegetables, spices and sauces. With prices starting from 6.90 Euro at lunchtime for one trip, Early Bird discounts and All You Can Eat options, as well as tempting side orders, desserts and great beer offers, how could you resist?!
