Lots of reviews over here mention Mongol food, which is fundamentally wrong. I am an expert on this region and I can state that it is not a Mongol cuisine, but a Buryat one. Althogh they are close. This is the fancy restaurant in Irkutsk. The menu is quite interesting. I ordered hot tea with milk, and of course local... More

I've been there with local people under there recommandation. Usually, it's not a good practice. But in this case it was. We had a warm welcome, place in a quiet space and had very good recommandation on food selection (not based on the meal price) but on your expectation. They also adapt the menu for us to taste different foods.... More

Seems more focused on design than high quality food. The liver was good. The meat average. More expensive than normal.

Sounded like an interesting place and it was recommended. Not very crowded but the food was good. The service was uneven but friendly. Friends in Irkutsk really enjoy this restaurant for special occasions. Staff volunteered to charge my phone for me; however they did not return my adaptor and refused to admit that they had had it. This was disappointing... More

To be honest, the food was very disappointing. Maybe it's the bland nature of Mongolian cuisine itself (????) or, more likely, we just ordered the wrong thing (I think I accidentally ordered tongue and onions, but I'm not really sure). In any case, the people at other tables looked like they were enjoying their meals. We will definitely return with... More

Although we arrived bit late (less than one hour before closing time), we still got a platter for two with an assortment of typical Mongolian dishes. The waitress was really helpful (since we knew almost nothing about Mongolian food), and we really enjoyed our late dinner. The atmosphere and design of this restaurant are very pleasant.
