Great food - can recommend soup and the Mini Khorkhog (pictured). Reminded me of great lamb casserole on a winter day. Kids enjoyed eating the lamb off the bone and soft stewed carrots & potatoes.

This was a lovely restaurant, situated below our hotel. The food was really nice, everything appeared to be cooked to order, and the service couldn't be faulted!

Dined here lastnight with friends and had a delicious meal, including fish dumpling soup, slow-cooked lamb and a traditional Mongolian milk tea. Great experience, which I highly recommend.
