Mangolian BBQ in San Francisco?

  • v

Where can i get Mongolian barbeque in San Francisco? I have been to Su's in Santa Clara (very yummy), Genghis Khan at Valley Fair, Sunvally and Hilltop....wanted to try some other places. Any suggestion in east bay would be nice as well.

  1. Not in San Francisco or the East Bay, but some other options are:

    o Colonel Lee's, Mountain View
    o Ulan Bator Mongolian Bbq, San Mateo (I must have missed this one, since I only found the reference online)
    o There's another Mongolian BBQ place on Bayshore Highway in Burlingame in the same building as the Hyatt Cinema. I just can't remember the name at the moment.

      I don't think Ulan Bator is around any more...

      I do NOT advise going to the mongolian bbq in Burlingame. I think the only way they have customers is that they stand right next to the door and pull you in so you can't possibly leave once you see the set up. Sanitary conditions are a bit questionable (when we went, it was obvious meat had sat out in the open for quite a while) and the food is mediocre at best.

    2. Genghis Khan in Alameda.
      New China Buffet on E14th across from Bay Fair Mall.

      Both are Chinese Buffet w/ MBBQ as with most MBBQ places.

      1. There's Korean BBQ in SF. Somewhat similar.

          sorry, but unfortunately korean bbq is nothing like mongolian bbq. i have been searching for a mbbq for years now. i got hooked when i lived in sacramento area...shame there isn't one in sf, i feel like it would do well! i know i'd send all my friends there.

            What's the name of the place you liked in Sacramento?
            I used to relish M BBQ in Sac. about 6 years ago. It was some nondescript place in a strip mall somewhere, but the food was amazing ! I may be headed there for a business trip soon, and I was thinking of trying it again.

              Osho, There used to be three places on Howe Avenue: White Swan, Great Wall (in the strip mall just before the Howe Bout Arden Shopping center) and I can't remember the name of the other, but it's in the strip mall across the street from the Great Wall. There's also one off of Truxel in the huge Home Depot parking lot, called Sizzling something.

                Sorry for interrupting, but please keep the discussion to those places that can be found in the Bay Area. Sacramento should be discussed on the California board. Thanks very much.
