Select your ingredients of different meats, vegetables and sauces for the meal, present to the chef who will entertain you while he cooks it on the oversize barbecue, then sit back and relax with a beer while you enjoy the meal. A little bit different, and food selection is quite good.

We ate here last night and the food was good, fresh & tasty. Well prepared. They also have a nice bar, so if you want a beer with your dinner, not a problem.

This was one of the most enjoyable meals that I had in Ulaanbaatar. It gave me the opportunity to try several things I have not tasted before, such as horse and sheep's head. I first sampled the meats raw (horse is very good, surprisingly sweet) and then put together my selection for the grill. I very rarely drink beer but... More

I was here a couple of years ago and really liked it, lots of different buffet food was fresh and hot, staff was experienced and fast but in July 2015 when I visited it with my partner it's became a boring place with not fresh and not tasty food and choices were very little. Very disappointed !

Hello dears. I like to eat at Altai BBQ restaurant. Because it is very quit place. Some BBQ restaurant has lot of people and very noisy. Also their price is lowest. Eat some meat and feel something difference.

I went with a large group to this Mongolian Barbeque restaurant and they accommodated us nicely. They have a fine selection of salads and sides, and do a nice job grilling your selection of meats, egg, vegetables and sauces/spices. It was a fun treat to be there during the grill show in the evening. We had a little trouble getting... More

I do like eat-all-you-can and Altai is good at this. Very popular with locals. I love the khorkhog or mutton stew. If you fancy roasted sheep's head, you'll find it here.

after a week in the wilderness we were looking forward to a good feed but were disappointed at having to wait 40mins whilst the chefs `cleaned ` the bbq grill and performed a terrible knife show where he dropped the juggling knives several times and then proceeded to use on our dinner! Food was nice but way too long to... More
