Good as usual. Once again, I was the high cost for the group, but it is worth every penny.

Service was great and very attentive. Bravo Mongolia Grill

We frequented this place in the early 2000's but got away from it as we moved away from the downtown. Seems everyone stopped going. We went on a Saturday night at 5:30 and was one of two tables there. Should have walked out when we had the chance. The place has the same decor and it's suffering from a need of a make over. The food was fine but you make your own so you can only blame yourself. I... more

Enjoyable

We did a family supper there and we all enjoyed it. It was a first time for all of us and we all said we will return. It is a bit on the pricey side but the food was good and service was excellent.

When I walked in, the waitress took my livingsocial coupon right away. Meal part went fine. She brought me a bill of full price.
I went to the cash counter to deduct the $30 coupon amount. When I told her I gave her the coupon, she said "No you didn't" !!!
me: "Yes I did"
waitress: No, you didn't

The service was pleasant, food quality was good and there was a very good selection of meats, vegetables and sauces to choose from. You fill out your bowl and pay by weight. We went during lunch hour on a weekday, but it was pleasantly not too crowded.
Going back again.

July 14, 2013

Mongolie Grill never fails to meet and exceed my expectations. I personally love this place because I get to choose exactly which ingredients I want and how much of each. The food is cooked on a large grill right in front of you, and served immediately which means hot and delicious. This visit was no exception, my husband and I... more

The food is good but REALLY expensive for stir fry.. Had an issue with a groupon voucher the last time we visited and the manager was rude and didn't resolve the issue. Unfortunately we won't be back. Used to be one of our favorite restaurants. The hostesses have always been really friendly.

Too easy to not get what you want
March 01, 2013

You pay for your meal based on weight. You choose your own stuff and sauces. It seems to me that many things have been saturated in liquid to increase the weight. Also, not a great deal if you are choosing more veggies as the price per weight must cover more expensive things like scallops etc. Compared to eating in other... more

WAAAAY too expensive for vegetarians
February 18, 2013

Mongolie Grill type places seem to be cheap everywhere else except Calgary. Vancouver, Toronto, the USA no problem it's about $7-$9 for a veggie stir fry.
Here they weigh the food, even though they give a small discount for no meat, it still cost $20 a plate EACH for just vegetables for dinner. There's just no reason to ever come... more

We won't go back to this restaurant. If you want to pay ridiculous prices for a self serve, cafeteria atmosphere, try this place. Trick is, you don't know how much your paying and they can charge whatever they want. My son's meal was $30 and my husband $18 - this wasn't a ton of food and both were definitely NOT... more

October 21, 2012

Mongolie Grill is a change from the conventional restaurant. You select the raw ingredients you want to eat and have a cook grill it for you. The unique concept is that you can be creative in your dish and watch your food being prepared. Two of us ate for $15 each and the quantity we chose was just right. I... more

Why do I want to go to a restaurant if I can make my own food
October 10, 2012

The selection is OK. But I wonder why do I need to go to a restaurant if you have to choose your own ingredients? Certain food should have certain combination of sauces and ingredients, that is the reason I go to a restaurant for, the chef should make the best combo suggestions. Stir fry/grill everything together sometimes do not provide... more

I have wanted to go to this restaurant since 2003 and finally went on the weekend. I was not disappointed.

This Restaurant is AMAZING

Mongolie Grill is one of my favourite restaurants mainly because you literally make your own dinner!!! You choose EVERYTHING. It's not like some of the make-your-own restaurants where it's not really the truth. At Mongolie Grill you get to literally choose exactly what goes into your dish. If you want one cashew and four pieces of beef, you can! You... more

Theres parking directly behind the building and on the street, so there is ample parking on weeknights. You get rice and rice paper plus a choice of a soup with your meal.

Financial Rape

I feel like I've just been financially raped. One cereal-size bowl was $27.00. The food was good quality and very fresh, but I wouldn't go back. I can have filet mignon for the same price.

The place is empty during the lunch rush and that tells part of the story.

OK I am not a fan of building your stirfry and paying $16 so somebody can flip it in a big wok. I mean it can seem like fun but I rather trust professionals to mix the right amount of water chestnuts, peanuts and black bean sauce. My dish was severely underwhelming (lack of sauce I think) but I should fire myself.

The first time I ever went to the Mongolie Grill was on a first date not long after moving to Calgary. I don't really remember how the date went because all I remember is being wowed by the fact that I could CREATE MY OWN STIRFRY and have somebody ELSE cook it in a restaurant! How awesome is that?

I love the Mongolie grill, for usually around $35 you can get enough food plus your rice to last you not only for dinner but for lunch the next day.
The hot & sour soup is great, I can't find anything simliar to it other places I have been to.
I love making different sauce combinations every time I go.... more

Royal rip off
July 20, 2008

Please save your money and do not get stuck paying too much for nothing at this establishment. The way it works is you fill a bowl with meat, veggies, and sauce of choice. But at 2.50+ per 100g you can end up paying 20.00-40.00$ for a normal size stirfry. Nothing fancy here just a gimmick. The dinning room is old musty and dated. No Value.

Depending on how hungry you are this can be a costly stir fry. You do get to pick all the ingredients for your stir fry, but I was just as satisfied as I would have been if I bought a frozen stir fry entree at the supermarket rather than spending $17 for average service with paper place mats.
