You pick the meat and vegetables and flavored cooking oils ( barbecue, dragons sauce, etc) and they cook it while you strand near by on a big iron cooktop. Very tasty and good prices.

I've only done take out, which is priced by weight, but it is a great deal, the food is good and much better than what you would expect for $13

Stopped by during a long (8 hour) connection at LAX. Located on Sepulveda, in Manhattan Beach, not too far from LAX airport. An old favorite which I hadn't visited for several years. Seems like the Vietnamese have taken over from the Chinese. All you can eat tasty Mongolian BBQ for $12.48 all-in (tax included). What a great deal!

Staff was super friendly and very helpful for our family had no clue how it worked. Food was fresh (except for the meat which is frozen and sliced very thin). Kids loved the buffets style and then watching the men cook what they chose. Overall great environment. I'm not sure if it was my meat that I chose or the... More

I have been here many times and it is one of my favorite places to eat. I go to many restaurants but this one is definitely near the top of my list. It can get crowded and the parking lot is small so just be ready to park somewhere else.

Great food and great service. I have been going here for years. We have gone here for birthday parties and holiday parties. Service is good, great selection of meat and sides for your plate.

It was really good! Had attended an event in the area with co-workers. All of us were ravenous and wanted something quick. I admit that I was underwhelmed when Big Wok was recommended. But, I didn't want to be 'that person' in the group that was disagreeable about lunch plans today. So, I went. Parking was a bit sparse, but... More

We one here often and love it. Everyone gets their food exactly how they want it. Put more sauce on than what they recommend.

First time doing Mongolian BBQ and it was interesting. After picking out your ingredients, the chefs would cook it all up on a giant round grill. Found that the steak was often over cooked, but overall, delicious and the staff did a good job of refilling our drinks.
