The Mongolian BBQ, All You Can Eat idea is a good one. You have a salad bar and a selection of cold appies to start. Then you go get a bowl, and fill it with various marinated or plain beef, pork, lamb, fake crab, fish, shrimp, vegetables, noodles, oils and sauces. You hand it to one of three chefs, who... More

My daughter and i ate there last night and had a very nice meal. She liked being able to have a little bit of lots of things, i liked being able to eat something freshly made.

We were a little hesitant about this place but you need to try for yourself. If your hungry and on a budget this is the place. Great selection of food place it into your bowl and watch it get cooked. I had 3 servings and everything was cooked just fine. The taste is in the sauces and oils you choose... More

What a awesome place. Who doesn't love to have unlimited amounts of food? This place is totally amazing. You don't even have to cook , they cook it there in front of you!! Absolutely everything to choose from as well. Seafood selection is sooooooo good!! Definitely do try this place!!!

Very busy restaurant and very noisy so not the best place if you would like to have a conversion with friends. Food selection is ok but you need to watch your food while they are cooking otherwise they will overcook it (they overcooked my wife's dishes twice). Staff are nice though.

if you can not find something nice to eat here, then you are strange> there is a great selection on offer and the really good thing is you select what you want, from meat, seafood, vegetables and flavours and they cook to your liking. THEN you can go back and try other things and always a selection of desserts to... More

Gengy's offers a really cool and really different experience then most restaurants. You get to create your own bowl of meats, veges and or sauces and then the chefs cook it on the a round hotplate. The hard part isnt making the bowl up - you can run with hundreds of combinations, the hard part is keeping an eye on... More

You pay a flat rate around NZ26 to NZ29 depending upon the time of day (lunches and early dinner times are the most economical rates in this restaurant) and then you get to choose ANYTHING at all in LARGE or other lesser quantities of a wide selection of fresh meats and fish and veges and salads and sauces, oils, and...

Fab place to take the children, as it's a bit more interesting/ novel than your average restaurant. Fun and delicious. Good value for money and something for everyone.

Stumbled across this place by accident and I'm so glad! It was so delicious and quick. The raw meat was a bit much for my dad, but I just sent him back to his seat and he got what he was given. My kids loved it and the price was awesome! Would recommend!!
