Mongolian Bar-B-Ques (although originating in Taiwan), have very disappointingly become a rarity in New Zealand. Rather puzzling, given the continual crowds that appear to frequent the one found in Wellington. They are also absolute exceptional value for money given that you pay for only a little more than a gourmet burger, and you get to eat as much as you... More

Service was good. Tables cleared as we went. Good variety of meat and Vegas to pick from. Buffet so you can have as little or as much as you like.

I dined at Genghis Khan as part of a larger group during a recent visit to Wellington. Being Mongolian BBQ, it is “DIY” style, with you selecting your own ingredients (meats, veges, and sauces/oils), then passing to the chef who then cooks it on the large BBQ plate while you wait. The food is fresh, and the end result is... More

You choose the food, sauces, cooking oils etc and it is cooked for you within a few minutes. You can return for as many helpings as you like. Great value for the price and extremely quick and pleasant service.

Don't go looking for gourmet dining but the food is OK. it's more about the Mongolian BBQ cooking novelty which can indeed be OK for a change of pace.

It's a good cheap little eat but not much variety and it was quiet when we went and kept getting pushed to buy dessert and then also when we seated we was told we ordered apple juice and I argued to say we didn't were ok with the water. Seems they want to push more money out of people. Typical,... More
