About
Mongolian Barbeque is the name given a method of cooking used by Genghis Khan and his troops in the 13th century, when they would cook meat on their shields over an open fire! Now we use a cast iron grill over an open flame, and you get to choose your ingredients. We have a great range of meat and vegetables, spices and sauces. With prices starting from 6.90 Euro at lunchtime for one trip, Early Bird discounts and All You Can Eat options, as well as tempting side orders, desserts and great beer offers, how could you resist?!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

food is fresh and plenty of it but the sauces were watery and would just boil under the food and run of the end of the grill, l got no flavor from the two dishes l had, would be better to give the chefs woks...and let them add a bit of cornstarch to thicken the dishes, l know it not a chinese restaurant but l don't think your restaurant will last if the flavors aren't there, friends said the same, the grill chefs should have a seasoning shake to give a food a bit of flavor, food needs a pinch of seasoning no matter what sauce is going on itMore

We were recommended here and wow it did not disappoint. You have a large selection of vegetables and a good selection of meat/tofu. It is all cooked in front of you. The value for money is fantastic. Can not recommend enough!

It was my first time having Mongolian food and it exceeded my expectations! I was there last saturday at lunch and all the waitresses were very friendly, I believe some of them were Brazilian, they explained everything to me very well and I decided to...go for all you can eat and it was lovely and spicy! I'll be back soon with my friends and family, you won't regret itMore

I won’t go back Blonde girl in the front hostess/ manager very rude, She’s not doing us a favor by giving us a table. People who are giving a service should receive you with a smile(if possible) or at Least showing good manners and not...impolitely. Very disappointing to pay and from the door be treated like that. Waitress was lovely. Food is okay.More

I have been visiting the Mongolian bbq since 2019. It was one of my favorite restaurants in Dublin. Here is why: my best friend has a medical condition and can barely eat, she eats maybe 1/2 of a bowl of noodles or even less. When...we went there we explained this situation and the chef said he was happy to charge just for one ball and we were very grateful about it, that grateful that we were clients for years. So this bbq was an all you can eat that allowed her to pay only a small dish. This October I had my relatives visiting from Mexico and we went there as usual. I was coming from work so they arrived five minutes early and when I got there my best friend was “disappointed” and my relatives were a bit confused of what happened. A rude, and I confirm, rude blonde hair, (I presuming Portuguese speaking because of the accent, I lived in Brazil so I know how it sounds) woman simply told her this line “I don’t know who told you that but I am the manager now and you can’t have that deal”. I went to talk with her, tried to explain the situation, especially trying to tell her that the chef was okay about it and that she could ask him, she stopped me and said “ I am the manager here and…” so I stopped her and asked her I did not want to speak to the manager lol it was like Karen in reverse. Anyway, she said she was not going to do the deal we’ve had for years because “she’s the manager”. She suddenly changed her mind and said “Ok but next time I won’t do it”, I was happy to say there was not going to be next time. This person clearly has no idea of what customer service is, the food in this restaurant is amazing, I won’t be going back in a near future, even if the food is great we had a horrible time with my family and friends. But wait there’s more. When I went to pay the bill she even had the courage to say “I did not add the tip but normally is 10%”. The audacity, I tipped not because of her but because of the guys cooking and the waiters. This incident happened the fifth of October at around 18:30 pm.More

The novelty alone made this an entertaining lunch. While I did not understand at first what was meant by "Then choose your meat," I quickly learned. Then I watched the chef cook three meals at a hot table. My two companions went back for "seconds,"...while I was content with one bowl of what I thought was a tasty lunch. We had three Bira Moretti to help.More

I visited the Mongolian Barbecue Restaurant in Dublin for dinner on Saturday evening. Although we were 20 minutes late for our reservation, the staff were very accommodating and kept our table for us. The place was full and was a little cramped, but it added...to the cosy atmosphere. The experience of picking my own meats, flavours, and watching them cooked right in front of me was really enjoyable. The food was delicious and great value for money. What made the experience even better were the friendly and laid back staff, who were always polite and welcoming. Overall, I had a fantastic time at the Mongolian Barbecue Restaurant and would definitely eat there again. The combination of customisable dishes, tasty food, and great service make it a must-try for anyone looking for a fun dining experience in DublinMore
