You select exactly what you want from the large selection of bins and watch it cooked on the huge round grill. You can't go hungry and everything is fresh.

Worst Mongolian ever. Poor service. Cold soup & rice. Limited choices and looks old & dirty. Don't sit under the ceiling vents, as they are black.
