We went here for my daughters birthday as she likes the thought of being able to choose what you eat. It's always good value for money, we've been here many times. It's not 5 star by any means but nice enough. Not quite as family orientated as it used to be but a good night out.

Gengy's is a little bit different to most eateries – you get to choose your dishes and they are cooked in front of you! This is a great place for large family groups; our group ranged from age 6 to age 60 and everyone had heaps of fun. You pay a set price and can revisit the grill as many... More

Back again for a family birthday dinner! The kids love choosing what they want to eat and so do we. Will be back again in a few months for the next birthday.

All you can eat of some of the best fare to be found anywhere. If you dine here and are not happy with the food or the service, then you are indeed a hard bugger to please! A wide selection of meats to have cooked for you and the creation of the dish is only limited by your imagination! Great... More

This is one of the better Gengy's I have been too. Their meats, salads, and sauces are always topped up and fresh, the food is cooked in an orderly way, and it is a great opportunity to try a lot of small portions of different flavours and styles. Their birthday song and dance gets a little annoying after the third... More

We did not know what to expect and this was fantastic! It's a one price for all and eat as you want with buffets of multiple Mongolian-type food along with plenty others (ie curries, salads, soups, etc etc even deserts with ice-cream and pancakes made by the chef in front of you). Each person goes help themselves and for the... More

The food is delicious and it's catered to your taste buds since you chose everything to cook. The only problem is it may take 3 or 4 bowls to finally perfect your perfect dish and by that time you're already full.

I was a bit worried about going somewhere to select my raw ingredients and have someone cook it. I needn't have worried. It was fun. Lots of different things to choose from, I didn't even realize I had missed some of the things. You can go up as many times as you want. We went for a birthday, the birthday... More
