I sought out this very hard to find eatery because it was rated so highly trip-advisor users but could hardly be more disappointed by the experience. To is not to say that the reviews were wrong. The sorry fact is that there has been an ownership and management change. Warning signs immediately manifested themselves. At 21.30 on a Saturday evening... More

Venus was closed for a week or two recently, this is the first time I've been back in a while. I ordered pan fried lamb at ten past eight on a Monday night. I started reading my book, not paying any real attention to the time. At some point, I realized it had been a while. Noticed the time (it... More

I only order the sambal fried rice and the curry puffs because they never disappoint. The food is delicious and the service, friendly. It's close to the State Department Store, which makes it a good place to eat if you are around that area.

I went to the Venus Cafe with friends the other night and it was fantastic. Everything that we ordered was tasty. The curry puffs, spring rolls and roti were delicious. The sambal fried rice was absolutely wonderful. I would definitely recommend this cafe. The service was great - had the VIP room and it was wonderfully warm. The owner even... More

I came here for dinner on a Thursday night I had tried to come on the Sunday, but it was closed, open all other days. I had the beef masala, it was tender and spicy and very filling, for only 9500 MNT, awesome value! The Ukranian lady running the place was very friendly and the staff were polite and attentive....

I used to like to visit this place when it was a cozy Mongolian pub/restaurant. I enjoyed having a draft beer and tsuivan. At that time it was a bit dark but I didn't mind. I was surprised one day when i came in to find that ownership had changed. The friendly older Mongolian women who would smoke in the... More

The only place in town which serves authentic Masala Dosa (a south Indian dish)- loved it. Had to call the chef out of his kitchen to extend a compliment. Owner Natasha with her husband and a teenage daughter are simply amazing! Great service and attention we receive during every visit is a pleasant surprise (rare treat in Mongolia). It never... More

I don't understand why other reviewers keep referring to Indian food at this restaurant. This is no more Indian food than French fries are French. We have plenty of good Indian restaurants in Ulaanbaatar, but this is a more rare find, true South East Asian cuisine. Over the years, there have been a few Malaysian restaurants but they have had...

A really friendly, value for money spot. Avoid the local white wine but the food is fantastic. Easy to find, next to Mary and Martha.
