Mongolian BBQ

  • t

Having a hard time finding Mongolian BBQ places in LA. We live in the Larchmont area. Any recommendations? Thanks.

  1. there is one in westwood that is ok. it's on the street just to the west of westwood bl in the village. not as good as col. lee's in hollywood, alas.

    1. If you want to hop on the 101 West and get off at Van Nuys, there's Mogo's Mongolian BBQ in the same little shopping center as In'N'Out, right next door to Crown Books.

      Unfortunately, one of the best is in the heart of the valley in Granada Hills, I believe. My ex-stepfather used to take us there. It was called King's, but I can't remember exactly where it was.

        King's Mongolian BBQ is in Northridge on Reseda Blvd. near Plummer.

        1. re: Emme

          There are two Kings Mongolian BBQ's....

          Reseda Blvd 5 Blks North of Nordoff, on the West Side of the Street. 9545 Reseda Blvd in Northridge, and at 19652 Vanowen St at Corbin on Reseda. Both are really great! The "pocket bread is addictive, my kids will sit down to several plates of it if I let them!

          And where else can you actually decide every ingredient that goes into your hot prepared dish?

          And for those of you who are trying to eat healthy, did you know you can OMIT all Oil, from Mongolian BBQ,and stick with hot sauces/currys, and eliminate the majority of the fat? There is enough "oil" floating on the huge WOK to cook all your food SANS any additional oil for most meals... So you CAN have your "cake" & and eat Mongolian too!

          1. re: moviebob

            Actually, if you choose no sauces at all (if you're really watching your fats and carbs), they'll use water to effectively steam your food. It actually tastes pretty good just steamed, and you can add soy sauce or mustard afterwards. Also, if you ask nicely (as I do because I don't eat red meat), they'll clean the wok off for you before they cook yours. They have to do this after every so many bowls anyway, why not after yours? Then you're guaranteed a healthy meal.

          2. re: Emme

            I second the rec for Mogos.... my all time favorite Mongolian BBQ place.

          3. i recommend as very good and casual the place in Westchester on Manchester. Again, sorry I don't remember the name, but it's on the south side of the street in a light bluish corner mall east of Lincoln by about a mile. Nice sesame breads, too.

              3 Flames Mongolian BBQ?
              I think that is what you are referring to.
              Very good food and I agree the bread is yummy too!

              1. re: Tari

                if you are willing to travel as far south as 3 flames, i'd recommend gutting up, and going down to manhattan beach to BIG WOK (sepulveda blvd south of manhattan beach blvd).
                the food at BIG WOK is much better imho.
                also, i've had the 3 flames folk try to limit the amount of tofu i can have in my dish. imho i should be allowed to control the ratio of veggies to tofu in my dish--after all i'm the one who's eating it. also, since i don't have meat or poultry in my mongolian bbq, it's not as if i'm trying to 'break the bank' on their costs. . . .

            2. Tried this place yesterday,was beyond horrible,which explains why we were the only ones advised,theres no buffet that usually goes with the Mongolian Bar bq as most places have,It is $16.95 per person for stale chicken.filthy shrimp and stale beef and lamb,along with stale vegables and a mongalian bar bq chef who cant understand english.This was the worst Mongolain barbq i have ever had,and ive had them everywhere.Terrible

              1. If you are going to travel to Northridge there is also LA Buffet on Nordhoff across from the mall. They have Mongolian BBQ and an entire chinese buffet. On the weekends they have lots of seafood dishes.
