Mongolian/ Korean BBQ/ Self-cook Places?

A friend's children, who are in DC, are requesting this, having visited a Mongolian BBQ place elsewhere.

Searched around the site and elsewhere, and found one with so-so reviews in Bethesda, and one with great reviews in Williamsburg: Peking Mongolian. Will save this for if/ when they go to Wmsburg.

Anything else closer to DC with a buffet and/or self-cook, appealing to kids?

  1. The only place I am aware of that serves Mongolian BBQ is Tony Cheng's in China Town near the Verizon Center. It is not terrific but certainly tasty enough and the children would probably like it. It is at 619 H St NW, Washington, DC - (202) 842-8669. (There is a BD'S Mongolian Barbeque -, 7201 Wisconsin Ave, Bethesda, MD - (301) 657-1080 but I know nothing about it.)

      PF Chang? for Mongolian in Crystal City

      1. re: Minger

        Charlie Chiang's not PF Chang. I'm not recommending CC -- just pointing it out as one of the few Mongolian options metro-accessible not too far from DC center.

      2. BD's Mongolian in Bethesda will suit your needs.

        1. Woo Mi, a Korean place in Wheaton, has the special tables with grill and several grilling options available. The interior is nicely decorated and the service is good. If you like seafood get the pancake to split as an appetizer. You can usually get a table pretty easily. Sushi is also available.

          1. I don't live in the DC area, so I can't suggest a specific place. But, another option that might be appealing to kids is a Japanese steakhouse, where the chef cooks right at your table. I remember being really into that when I was little.
