Surprisingly good, all you can eat, Mongolian barbequeue. You get to chose the ingredients yourself, which are then bbq-Ed in front of you. Pay attention to the sauces and their combinations, they give all the flavor.

A very simple restaurant. The line moves quickly. Having never been, our party of three were clueless about what to do. A father and his children in the line guided us. The food was very good. We noticed there was an extra charge for waste...taking more than you will eat. First time we had encountered that.

We stopped here for a quick meal and were surprised--no, stunned--at how good it was. Fresh ingredients, great staff, good vibe, outstanding and healthy food.

This place is an AYCE, create your own stir-fry, Mongolian bbq. Loved the ability to create from a choice or proteins, veg and starches. Create your own sauce is great too. Loved the rice and other sides that are included. The one reason I did not give it 5 stars was that they use the grill a ton for many... More

Nice restaurant within walking distance of my hotel. You get to chose what you want to eat and they cook it right in front of you. Not fancy, but good and healthy.

Good food and good selection. Not a one and done place, go back as many times as you want. I would go back if I'm in the area again.

This is a really nice place for AYCE. The place always very clean and food is presented very well and properly stored. Which is important from a health code standpoint Owners greet you with a big smile and even when it's crowded the line moves fast it's all Mongolian BBQ and not many hot dishes like at some places where...

Fill a bowl with ingredients and hand it to the chef who cooks on a sizzling round stone. Beware hordes of starving Stanford students who sometimes fill the place making it hard to go back for seconds or thirds.

We went here with 8 people, ranging from 4 to 89 years. At the buffet you can choose anything into your bowl - frozen meats, shrimp, tofu etc the. Vegetables, pineapple and other add-ons. Lastly they had a selection of 8 or so sauces with a few example recipes. It's fried infront of you by 2 chefs who rotate around... More

They have a great selection of foods to choose from. All very fresh and they keep the self serve area very clean. It was busy when I was there but the line moves very quickly through the cooking area. I thought the price was reasonable. Servers kept my drink glass filled and took away dirty dishes as soon as I... More
