A couple friends and I had dinner at Bali Hai on a Saturday evening. There were a lot of customers and there were few empty tables. However, we were seated in a matter of a few minutes.
This was my first experience eating Mongolian food, so I followed the lead of my two friends as they have eaten at this restaurant several times. The waitress asks how many bowls of food would you like, which are small wooden salad bowls. We were also asked how we would like our food seasoned as well as steamed or fried rice. I chose teriyaki. All three of us stated that we would like 2 bowls each. After the waitress took our drink order, we walked up to the salad bar-like set up. You pick up a plastic orange tray, just like one of the pictures on this website. There are 3 meat choices: pork, turkey, and beef. The 3 meats are all thinly sliced and perhaps flash frozen. There is an assortment of diced and shredded vegetables such as zucchini, cabbage, onions, carrots, etc. One of my friends told me that I could pile my bowls full of food as high and as I could. After you pile the food in your bowls, you take it to the chefs who cook in an open kitchen. The chefs cook the food on a huge round flat grill. It was interesting to watch them cook. The chefs also use long knives, which looked like swords to me, to stir fry the meats and vegetables as they are cooking.
So, my first experience eating Mongolian food was great! I would definitely go eat here again.
