I enjoyed this restaurant when it had an authentic Mongolian wok and the food was cooked fresh. This visit we ordered the Mongolian stir fry from the menu and were all disappointed. My orange/ginger sauce was a watery brownish-grey sludge that didn't stick to the noodles or the shrimp. My friend had the Thai curry sauce which barely had any... More

I went there to try something different, The food was ok, but when the waiter said the wine was $5 a glass i said ok no problem, so I had 2 with my dinner. Originally he told me $10 for the food and $5 each for two glasses of wine, which obviously is $20 plus 10% tip and 12% tax... More

I have been to this restaurant 5 years ago. Things have changed for the worse. The interior looks the same. The grill is no more. The food was horrible with too much sauce. The waiter was pleasant but lazy. We had to ask for sauces, cutlery, and much more. He wouldn't bring it on his own. He was very slow... More

We just found this place as we were walking along and thought...Mongolian, why not? We both ordered main meals of their specialty dishes...choices of meats with a full variety of sauces, stir fried with rice or noodles. We were quite hungry so greedily also ordered nachos with Mongolian sauce to share at the start....WELL it was HUGE and we only... More

After my visit, this place became my favourite restaurant in Quito. Very delicous $5 lunch. An escape from the high prices around the Plaza Foch. Very friendly staff! It's just 50m from the Plaza Foch. Don't hesitate!

You can't order the wrong thing at Mongos. All of the cuisine is divine. While the prices are steeper than other Ecuadorean restaurants which serve Ecuadorean cuisine, at Mongos it is worth every penny. The atmosphere is such that you don't want to leave. You will feel as though you have been transported to a modern day Morocco. The seating... More
