My family and I have been going here since it first open. However it has been some time since we have eaten here. Unfortunately, our last last visit was not a good one. This restaurant has gone way down hill. To start the atmosphere is dark. Especially over where you pick out your food, you barely see if the vegetables... More

I have nothing against this establishment. The food is amazing and you can eat healthy, which is a bonus. However, I just find it too costly. My 14 year old sons meal was $32, as they weigh the bowls once you've dished up your food. Obviously, he has a raving appetite. My meal was tasty with some tofu, salmon, spinach... More

Nice idea, but so expensive for average food. They seat you and give you empty bowls, which you then take up to the salad, uncooked meat and noodle bar and select your ingredients, including sauces. Then it gets weighed and someone cooks it on an open barbecue plate. I nearly fell off my chair when I was told my bowl... More

A place where the concept is similar to the Mongoli Grill - you select your stir-fry items from a large array of options, load them in a bowl, pick sauces and flavors, and they create your stir-fry on the spot. Prices are by weight, so a reasonably filling meal can be somewhat expensive. Flavoring is up to you, so if... More

seems pretty expensive, considering you just jam a bunch of raw ingredients into a bowl and then hand it to a guy who just fries it all up in big pile , right next to everybody else's big pile. kinda nasty when i say it loud. i dunno, not the cleanest place i've been to. friendly staff i guess.

We have been going to this restaurant on a regular basis for years. It is quick, we enjoy the food and the servers are pleasant and accommodating. You pick the veggies and protein for your meal and then add the sauce which gives the dish so much flavour. There is a suggested list of sauce combinations at the end of... More

As neophytes, my wife and I thought we would give this restaurant a try. We both had experience with the Mongolian concept twenty or thirty years ago but we found ourselves lost initially (a quarter of a century will do that). We ordered appetizers with my wife opting for the Cucumber Ribbon Salad and myself the Grilled Short Ribs. The... More

I went with a couple of friends the other night and it was really yummy! I will definitely go back. it's great because you can make your bowl cost as much or as little as you want. but it would be hard to make your bowl more than about 25$ so it is a good restaurant within a budget.

Went here for lunch on the weekend and had a great meal. The restaurant is a good size, nice decor and lets you watch them cook your mean if you want. The buffet style food selection lets you put whatever meats, vegetables and sauces you want in your bowl before they cook it and serve with rice and wraps. There... More

We have been going to Xan for many years and it never disappoints! The choices are fresh, the sauces delish and the Staff friendly. Another plus is that the veggies, meats and fish are fresh & topped up frequently and the buffet is clean, a must when food is out like this. Great for a large group or just a... More
