Description: Mongo's is pure cross-culture and the most extraordinary catering experience for explorers and individualists. Create your dishes as you like. Always new, always different. In the Mongo's you are the head of the kitchen!! With our all-you-can-eat-classic "Mongo's Total" you can taste and combine endlessly! Combine to your heart's content the ingredients at our buffet, the Mongo's Food Market, for your individual meal as often as you want. Choose to each course one of our diversified home-made Mongo's marinades: from European mild to Asian fiery hot, pure vegan or vegetarian, always gluten-free or free of glutamate - it's your choice: there is something for everyone! Our chefs prepare your selection quick and gentle right in front of your eyes. And shortly after that your meal will be served at your table with a portion of rice. Alternatively to Mongo's Total you can also choose à la carte from our different Asian main dishes. And in many restaurants we also offer Mongo's Select for guests with less hunger endless tasting, but you only pay what you consume.

The idea of an exotic all-you-can-eat buffet, is really quite tempting. But the truth is that how much of this menu which is laced with Thai and Indian cuisine is genuinely Mongolian is questionable.

Opting away from the chance to gorge myself at the self service buffet, I went for the 'a la carte' option. Bad mistake! Patience is supposedly a virtue but the latency of service was simply infuriating. The restaurant was hardly heaving and yet catching a waiter's attention proved more difficult than lassoing a wild yak. The time lapse between courses made me think I would have been better off handwriting my requests and sending them by post. When waiters did make themselves available they were unengaged and aloof.

The rather tepid experience can be summarised by one of the menu options: 'vegetarian tempura' (Mongolian?) which disappointingly consisted of two battered slivers of carrot sticks - bland and ineffectual.

Food was average to average +. Restaurant was not even full but the service speed and attitude was terrible. First and last time in this restaurant.

I love this place. Is it expensive? Well, yeah. Is it worth it? Absolutely!

There's a large variety of ingredients you can use for your dish, numerous sauces and very fresh herbs. The staff is really friendly and professional.
The bathrooms are clean and bright.

This is a great place if you're looking for a restaurant for special occasions- as long as you're not on a budget

I was there for a dinner with my colleagues. Didn't know what to expect, but i was well surprised to find many different kind of meat, fish and vegetables to choose, with the formula All you can eat :)

When you arrived you can choose 10 different kind of sauces (i went for Chili, by the way not so hot as described...), you stand up and put in your dish whatever you want. Then you leave your dish in the kitchen and they cook directly in front of you adding the sauce you choosed before (the name of the sauce is written beside the dish, so you don't have to wait in front of cookers, but your dish will be brought at your table by waitresses).

Absolutely to try Zebra meat, cangaroo and ostrich.

Good beers, nice place, but avoid to go ther with high temperatures: no air conditioning inside, we had tables inside, but we spent all the time outside, bcause was quite impossible stay inside!

Don't know about prices, because the dinner was offered by my local colleagues!
