Squaremeal Review of Mongolian Grill ?

Headlined as an ‘oriental BBQ & hotpot restaurant’, the Mongolian Grill brings some authentic Asian culinary thrills to a quiet corner of Clapham Old Town. The concept has different names in different cultures – shabu-shabu, gogi gui, yakiniku – but essentially it’s a DIY blow out involving a pot of simmering broth at the centre of the table, surrounded by morsels of raw meats, seafood, vegetables & noodles for dunking into the savoury liquor. Simply choose the style & fragrance of the broth, select your chosen ingredients from the buffet display, & make up a dipping sauce from the condiments at the bar. Alternatively, grill your own food at one of the mini tabletop BBQs. Prices are remarkably enticing (‘all you can eat’ for around £12), & the whole show takes places in the compact surrounds of a converted pub – all black paintwork & red lanterns.

What does the average person know about Mongolia? All I know is that many of the population play a kind of polo with goat heads, and that Ewan MacGregor enjoyed traversing the vast landscapes by motorbike in his series The Long Way Round. The fact that it was a grey and dismal Sunday is worth a mention; however, it was lunchtime and entering a dead empty restaurant and feeling like you have rudely interrupted the window cleaning isn’t a great way to start the experience. I waited, and in the end,...

I totally agree with the reviewer below – I love love LOVE this place, and have been 6 times now since discovering it 8 months ago!!! Being Sichuanese, I often crave the mouth-numbing taste of spicy hotpot, and this place is by far the cheapest place to feast this desire. £12.50 for a buffet is an amazing price. Meat, seafood, veg, noodles… the options are varied and enough to satisfy most people's appetites. As I often go with westerners who cannot tolerate the spice so we opt for a half-half pot,...

I first went to The Mongolian Grill about 18 months ago and since then I have been at least 10 times and I will keep on going again and again.. I live in Palmers Green in North London and I dont mind the 1 hour and 20 minute journey home. My taste buds have come alive for the first time in years, ohhh the excitement of choosing my vegetables, meats, sauces and spices to cook at my table. love it, love it, love it!!! The staff are lovely too, always at help if I need anything and also helping me...

I absolutely love this place. Went with three friends we all felt the same. Being a fussy veggie bore i was particularly impressed with the choice of fresh veg and meat alternatives. The staff were very attentive and excellent in advice on correct choice of soup base, and dips for my hotpot. We were able to choose two, to the delight of my friends.. I had my veggie side while the others got to indulge in their favourite meats and fish. Healthy food cooked and eaten at your table, to your own leisure,...

An awful offal dinner Being a Chinese who had been craving for hot pot and grill in this wintry weather, I searched online and found this highly rated restaurant that was also recommended by London TimeOut, yet the dinner was a disaster. We were literally being bullied by the restaurant's owners because they didn't inform us about the time limit yet were keen to kick us out before we finished our dinner because there were other customers waiting for a table. Food is really average – generally salty,...

    Passport and Toothbrush: :: Passport and Toothbrush: Mongolian Hot Pot and BBQ at Mongolian Grill

    I’m eating around the world without leaving London and this week I went to Mongolian Grill in Clapham for some Mongolian hotpot and BBQ.

    Admittedly a there’s apparently nothing Mongolian about a Mongolian hotpot or the Mongolian BBQ, but I can tell you that it does make for a fun filled foodie experience.
