It is nice restaurant to go if you don't mind paying money for the cooking food for yourself. Good variety of ingredients available will even satisfy foreign visitors. They don't serve dishes except starters, snacks and salads. The only main dish you can make is a soup.

Quick service and a diverse selection of food items to make your hot pot experience worthwhile. Went with the set hot pot menu and added a select few items. Great experience with a group of friends. Will definitely stop by again. I believe there are 3 locations throughout the city.

The food quality is really good and the choices for your hot pot are almost endless. Several different choices of meat, vegetables and noodles are on offer and come in big portion sizes. The service is up to Western standards and personel is friendly. Highly recommended if you like hot pot!

Food is good, especially Mongolian hot pot, but not really suitable for quiet conversation. Service is perfect, but not enough comfort. This is place to eat, but not to relax and enjoy the atmosphere or have chat.

Staying in the Gobi's Kelso Hotel provided me with the opportunity to walk to the Bull Restaurant. I never had eaten at a hot pot restaurant and had no idea of how to order. As a solo diner I was seated quickly and attempted to look around to figure out the appropriate method of ordering and dining. Fortunately a server... More

I have already been back to this restaurant two times, in the last week. The service is prompt, friendly and professional. The food is absolutely delicious and fresh. The hot pots are delicious, with a selection of different broths. Everyone has their own individual induction cooktop.

You can get set menus, I shared that with people I met at the hostel. We were four and took two menus. It was plenty (a bit too much maybe haha). Everyone gets their own pan to cook their own food. Quality is good, service good as well, but the language barrier is present as they do not speak English... More
