This place was crazy busy. There were big queues at the start of the night to get food. The lines went down after a while. It's a strange concept. I know nothing about Mongolian food - why would you get me to pick the ingredients? There was a wide range of meats and veges. Can't complain about the food quality. We had a fun night here - we had a very large group. Wouldn't hurry back though

It was very noisy as there were a couple of large groups. We had to shout at each other to communicate. The food was average. We went with an Entertainment Book voucher which they refused to honour stating that they were no longer part of the Gengy's franchise even though they were listed on the voucher and are on the Gengy's website as a partnered store. They didn't give us any discount whatsoever.

Came here as I was at a holiday park nearby and am bit of a healthy eating 'freak' so was attracted by the fact I could pick ingredients and it was cooked in front of me - as much as I want, all for $25! Sounds too good to be true...
Reality was as good as the theory - quality and variety of fish, shellfish, meat and vegetables was very good and there were suggestions for the spices / oils to combine to have what fits - was cooked by really good chefs.
So all in all great and one of the best meals I've had in NZ ( been here a month).

We went on a Sunday night and it was quiet, with only a few other tables in a large restaurant. The waitress seated us at the table then left, not explaining how everything worked, luckily we have eaten at a Mongolian BBQ before so knew how to do it. Great for fussy eaters as you create your own dish by putting all your own ingredients in a bowl and then the chefs cook it on a large BBQ hotplate. There was also a salad bar and deep fried bar. The salads were were plain but fresh. The deep fry bar had chips, crab nuggets, spring rolls, fried rice and more. Then for dessert, there is freshly cooked pancakes with all the toppings, fruit and ice cream. There was little to no service from the staff, we had to walk to the bar to order a drink. Overall it was a good night and good value for only $24.95 per person.
