“Average food, unimpressive decor, fresh ingredients”

Genghis Khan Mongolian Bbq Buffet
Ranked #22 of 75 Restaurants in Manukau
Cuisines: Mongolian
Restaurant details
Reviewed April 15, 2018 via mobile

The restaurant provides novelty experience as you can carry fresh ingredients to cooks who operate a grill. You mix meat, vegetables, oil, sauce, spices in a bowl and give it to the cooks. They in turn will BBQ it and give it back to you on a platter. You add sauce and bring it back to your table. If that is not your thing (then it's no point going there really, :-) ), they have a limited choice of salad in a salad bar, fried rice, noodles, soup, ice cream, pancakes. They also have a bar. Great for hosting parties. The evening we went there they had a birthday party going on. The waiting staff were rude, they initially assigned us a seat and then when we were eating, one of them came and told us to shift to another table. The water came in plastic glasses and cheap glass jugs. The seating is unimpressive, the decor and ambience is shabby. The barbecue is greasy and if you follow their the recipe they suggest, you will end up lots of grease on your plate.
Other than the novelty and fun of going there, I'd not recommend this place if you are looking for a serious pleasant evening out with family and friends for food.

We can choose the meat and sauce that we like, then kitchen staff will cook for us, not perfect taste, I still think a good chef can choose better than we do. But this is a very different experience from all other restaurants.
Somewhat over priced for me.

Went with family and friends. Friendly staff and very efficient but it is definitely over priced with food that isn't such good quality overall. Its crowded and the seating arrangements aren't too well thought out and i think is intended for people between the ages of 12 and under or sizes at least. Better chairs than Manukau but too expensive ultimately and not enough variety for dessert. Only good to go here if you're starving but not when you want quality food.

Nothing to rave about. Very average restaurant. Choice of foods is limited. Especially the dessert options. At $25 a person I think other buffet restaurants give better value for money. Staff are OK but not very friendly. I wouldn't go there again.

Ate here for dinner, food was good and has a good variety available as well, meals were cooked quick and get experience at all times, i would suggest booking tho as they do get busy with large groups.
