this mongolian barbecue restaurant is closed and out of business ... and has been for a number of months now.
Not worth it – My friends and I decided to go to Mongolian BBQ because we found a coupon for it (had never been before). The expiration date was nowhere close to the date we went there, but for some reason the management refused to accept our coupon. That was the major (but not the only) irk. Other than that, the ambience is severely lacking: dim lighting, old old tables and chairs (parts falling off), and the place in general doesn't seem the most sanitary. The meat comes in the form of frozen chips, and after being cooked, they tasted kind of tough. It was nice how we got complimentary potstickers, egg drop soup, and shao bing (type of bread?), though despite all that, the $10 meal wasn't really worth it. One positive thing: the waitresses are very nice and friendly.
Old Stale Negative – Waitstaff actually rushed us to get us out of there, RUDE! Complete garbage, all of the ingredient offers were sub par in quality and appearance, I don't eat meat but I could tell that the meat there was defrosted prison cafeteria junk, the cook added everything together at once and didn't take cooking times into account, the floors were dingy dingy dingy, depressing lighting, overpriced, sauces lacked quality, I have lived in austin since 91' and this is on my top three BAD Austin restaurants of all time.
Sauces – This place blew me away. I wasn't so sure of this particular mongolian bbq, because it looked so weird to me. The young man, Chad I believe, who served us talked to us for a while explaining everything to us. He was so polite. He eventually told us to just go ahead and make up a plate and if we trusted him to let him put together the sauce combinations for us. Everyone who was with me....about 6 or 7 of us decided to go ahead and trust him on his judgement. Not one of us were dissatisfied with what went through our taste buds. The service was so exceptional...that this boy received a huge tip from us, and we always ask for him when we go there now.
The only bad thing we could tell was that the soap in the bathrooms have been mixed with water.
Get it right! – This place is quite tasty indeed. However, the restaurant stays open until 11:00, not 9:45. My friend looked up your competitor's listing, so we had to call the restaurant to see which was correct. Scarf on, late-night eaters!
