Had a decent meal, a good server and it has a nice atmosphere. I should mention though they did not honor the price on the menu I received when I ordered my food. Apparently they didn't update the "new prices" in all the menus so I ended up paying 11kT more than what I should have. From my experience of... More

Restaurant looks a little dated but is overall ok. The clientele is mixed and the restaurant has a family ambiance. The menu offers a very wide range of choices, mainly western food (pizzas, burgers, salads, pastas and a few Mongolian dishes...). The menu is translated in English. Service is good. Quality of food is fine, not extraordinary but not bad... More

We visited a few times during our time in UB - huge selection of different types of food (salads, burritos, burgers, pizzas, pasta along with some traditional Mongolian dishes). Easy to follow menu all in English and staff all speak English too. Priced very reasonably and the dishes we tried were great. Be careful what you order though as the... More

A busy place, but not especially atmospheric, it seemed more like a large cafe or canteen. The beer was cold [ always a plus] and the food plentiful and fine. My dining partner had the Mongolian beef, which was enjoyable and I had an artichoke and spinach soup, which wasn't a soup as we would know it, but in a... More

I have never had a bad meal here but also I have never had a great meal either. It is a busy restaurant filled predominantly with Mongolian families and groups. It can get very busy on Friday and Saturday evenings. The service can be very slow in these periods, expect to wait an hour for food to arrive. Even drinks... More

This place was fine, decent service, burgers were pretty nice, chips were ordinary, quite pricey for Mongolia.

Food in UB is getting better each year. So many new restaurants opening up, that offer tasty, high quality meals. California, had a good run for many years but it's never been good. It was good for UB.. the UB of way back when, although, in the many years I've been visiting this city, I've never...ever had a good meal... More

if you are out for American Cuisine the California is seemingly a good choice; I was looking for a good Sushi Offer.......and decided afterwords to look for something better

An OK Restaurant serving Western or more American like Cuisine. Servings are large and cuisine is common. The steak is pretty good, Salad is good and somehow goes pretty well with Genghis Beer ! Service is good and its well maintained. Value for $$$
