If you want a break from more local food and want to enjoy some good international food in refined surroundings, then this is the place for you. But not if you want to immerse yourself in local food and a traditional Mongolia environment.

For me IVY is luxury and expensive restaurant. Their service is great. But for Mongolians portion is not enough. Of course dishes are delicious.

We had a lunch here. It's real gastronomy. Although we might not be properly dressed for this kind of standards we were treated very well. We can't say anything negative about this place.

This is as close as one gets to fine dining in UB and is popular with the business, diplomatic and government crowds. Nice menu, good service and fine dining ambience. Would recommend it. When we left UB the new Shangrila Hotel had just opened but not their fine dining restaurant but would be a place to check out for an... More

We had a very pleasant meal here. The food was really good - the meat melted in your mouth. We were the only people in the restaurant so maybe lacked a bit of atmosphere but was perfect for what we wanted.

23 of us walked into the Ivy Restaurant for a meal which was pre ordered. Pleasantly surprised to find that we were in an elegant restaurant. The staff was pleasing and could manage to serve the various drinks orders and find the 15 vegetarian who did not eat meat.

And the deserts of either chocolate cake or cheese cake. The food was good and so was the service. Nice to be able to watch the goings on on... More

The STAR of Ulaanbaatar…the Ivy is the most elegant restaurant in Ulaanbaatar. Located on the south side of Seoul Street opposite the Khan Bank, it offers delicious European cuisine. Waiters provide excellent service. The Ivy is a short walk from the State Department Store and the National Circus.
