Top 10 restaurants in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

January 18, 2018 Franklyn Hardiman

Located in the northern part of the country, high above sea level, Ulan Bator is the coldest capital city in the world. The cultural and business center of Mongolia, and a hub connecting the Trans-Siberian Railway with the Chinese rail system, Ulan Bator has become a thriving urban center in one of the most remote locations in the world. Visit the Tibetan-style Gandan Monastery, one of the few buildings in Ulan Bator to predate WWII and one of the few monasteries to survive the Soviet purge.

Hazara

Hazara": our name is derived from the people of Hazara tribe, settled in Northern Mountains of Afganistan. Hazara's are related to Mongolia as they came as part of Chinggis Khan's army in 13th century. They are proud, Independent and good natured people. Our Food; North Indian Frontier Cuisine is based on healthy traditional method of cooking. There is gentle use of spices and more emphasis on flavours and herbs. Tandoor (Clay oven) is used to grill the meat to give its chary taste. There is abundant use of dry fruits and cream to give very creamy and smooth taste. Our Architect: We have created the ambience of Havelis of Rajasthan. Antique doors and zarokas and colourful tents create warmth and romantic ambience.

Once you have mastered the technique of collecting your raw ingredients to be grilled watching the action is great theatre and the subsequent food excellent. There is a buffet as well as the grill that was very varied but often luke warm.

Silk Road Bar & Grill

Reviewed By Maire M - London, United Kingdom

This restaurant is only a few minutes walk from Sukbaatar Square and it overlooks the monastery museum. Theoretically an Italian restaurant but really more varied than that.
The staff don't speak English well but I managed to get an allergy friendly veggie meal.
Nice atmosphere, seems popular with local business people as well as expats and visitors

We had an excellent meal here. The menu is primarily Italian but had some other continental dishes as well. The atmosphere was lovely and the service very good. Eating here was a pleasant break from Mongolia food. I would definitely eat here again if I found myself back in Ulaanbaatar.

Modern Nomads

Reviewed By crosswycke - Boulder, Colorado

I wasn't crazy about the atmosphere of this place or the taste of much of the food. But it was a good chance to try things like Mongolia dumplings and mutton. It's definitely worth checking about despite my so so review because of the availability of Mongolian dishes. I don't like tough, unspiced meat and that seems to be a lot of what authentic Mongolian food is. But when in Mongolia...

Came here following the recommendations on trip advisor and from people who were eating in this place. When you enter the garden there's a Buddha temple or something like that. The restaurant itself looks like someone's house. The menu was in English and also the waitress. We ordered salads in 6000-8000tugriks fair price, and I was expecting a great salad in a vegan place. When I got my salad it was rather "sad", not as lively as you normally get it in restaurants, was a bit disappointed with it. But vegetables are vegetables so difficult to destroy thanks god. Ordered also local juice, didn't like at all.
Then asked for pasta with mushrooms and olive oil special sauce, the plate was 7700tugriks, but the taste wasn't as I was expecting from top rated restaurant.
Bottom line - nice familial place, with a gig, vegan and Buddha. However the quality of the food (and maybe also products) is pretty low in my opinion, you want cheap there are plenty of places in ub for that, you want tasty you can get it as well, this place however seems to miss on both ends.

We had been recommended this restaurant by our hotel and when I looked at the menu there was nothing that seemed familiar. However I chose a fish masala and it was amazing. The sauce was fabulous and the fish just melted in my mouth. All the other dishes were just as good, even the saffron rice had a great flavour. One of the best Indian meals I have had in a long time. The service was great too, our hotel had booked the table and there were candles and delicately arranged coloured napkins, a great evening.

The Bull

Reviewed By PhilipCarol - Oxford, United Kingdom

This review refers to the branch in the Bluemon building. The restaurant serves Mongolian hotpot made in individual pans at the table, rather like a shabu-shabu with a Mongolian twist (buurz included). It was excellent. Service was however a bit hit and miss, and this was the only place we visited in Mongolia where I felt less than very welcome.

Took Mongolian in laws here. Really delicious but filled with very young tourists, some at long tables, so was more casual and louder than I expected. Also be aware that last tables are available at 8:30 pm. and they close at 9.
