Bd's Mongolian Barbeque: Cooking show
This is the first American chain restaurant to open a franchise in Mongolia - ironically, it's not American cuisine but Mongolian barbeque. What you do is fill your plate or plates with raw food such as meats, vegetables and sauces etc and then take them to be cooked by a few guys standing around a huge circular hot plate. They will then take your plate/s and cook the food in front of you as well as everyone else standing there waiting for theirs to be cooked. It's all pure entertainment and the food is cooked OK but then the ingredients can be a bit dodgy as they're chosen by you!
Gobi restaurant: Taste of the desert but not the sand!
This restaurant lies in the southern suburbs of Ulaanbaatar on the south side of the railway line. We came here for lunch after arriving back from the Gobi Desert on our 10-day long Mongolian tour so it only seemed fair to take in more Gobi cuisine. I had a "Gobi Grill" which featured a camel steak, vegetables and barbeque sauce. Starters consist of about 6 salads, Unagaldai horse meat snack and soups. Main dishes included a "Nomad" - beef rib, potato, carrot and turnip cooked in a clay pot; beef tenderloin steak, "Taste of steppe" - beef on a hot plate with steamed dumplings; fried pork, buuz and Khuushuur. The camel was excellent, tasty and very lean.
Ristorante Pizza della Casa
Although I cannot really remember it, I'm sure I ate a pizza here. Don't expect pizza like in Italy as there is no mozzarella cheese available here. It's ok to eat here but it isn't anything overwhelming but makes a nice change from the local fare like mutton dumplings.
Dabai Restaurant Pub
I visited this restaurant with VTer veggieguru who was vegetarian. She found herself a yummy spaghetti with veggies. What I ate I don't really remember but the first dish I wanted was not available.
The restaurant is not very big and in the front section there is a bar, which gives it a bit of a pub feeling.
This restaurant is mid-price for UB. I can't remember what exactly I ate but it was a good western style dish with meat. The meal cost around 5 to 7 USD.
You can eat much cheaper than that in UB and in the vicinity of this restaurant if you eat the traditional mutton dumplings or spaghetti which were around USD 1.
Stupa Cafe: Pleasant place for coffee and cake
Freshly made cakes. Low prices. The Stupa cafe is sponsored by the FPMT Buddhist Center. Nice quiet non- smoking, no alcohol environment. Lite snacks, eg cheese and tomato or pineapple sandwich, scrambled eggs. Coffee, juice including a Mongolian special Sea Buckthorn. Also an English language library.
Favorite Dish: Apple cake

Millie's Espresso: Good food, resonable prices
Good food, clean. Great staff. The owners, Millie and Daniel are really nice people. Great coffee.
Lunch time 1 to 2, is generally packed. It is a favorite place for many of the Expats in UB. Vegitarian dishes also.
Favorite Dish: Huevos Rancheros. Eggs and veggies wrapped in a tortilla with some sliced green spicy peppers on top.

The Californian: A touch of American
Very comfortable and inviting. Menu available in English and Mongolian. Menu has European and Mongolian dishes. Also have great cocktails, try the Long Island Tea, a favourite of my husbands.
Favorite Dish: They have a very good fish dish and are very particular with food preparation.

Sacher's Cafe: Austrian pastries
This place, like many other in Ulaan Baatar makes yummy bread and pastries. It speciallizes in apple schtrudels, pretzels, bread, that sort of thing. It has also a big array of German herbal teas and serves cappuccino coffee. It has tables outside by the roadside and also a sitting area inside. Very cosy with nice music. The staff are very helpful.
When we went there we were so shocked to find real sweets and coffee and herbal teas - after a particularly strenuous trip around Asia - that we ordered a hot drink and a desert each and then had a repeat of everything. The Mongolian waitress seemed a little puzzled at first but brought everything we had asked for with no further enquiries..
Favorite Dish: Described by Lonely Planet as the best bakery in north-east Asia.
Millie's: western food & atmosphere
usually i prefer to eat local food when travelling. but i tell you, after 6 weeks of mongolian mutton dishes, i worship the taste of a bacon&eggs, burger and diet coke. great place to eat western food in a nice atmosphere, clean place and english speaking staff. and they say that they've got the best coffee in town (can't judge, don't drink it).
a lot of embassy employees hang out there, often full and busy at lunch time.
Favorite Dish: soup (of the day...), burritos, peach pie.
Ulaanbaatar Hotel: GOOD Chinese Food
There are quite a few Chinese restaurants in Ulaanbaatar, but few people know about recently opened Ulaanbaatar Hotel Chinese restaurant (on the first floor). Chef is from Beijing, so if you want to try real good Chinese food, try at UB hotel.
Favorite Dish: Pineapple Chicken, Seafood.
The traditional mongolian cuisine is not too sophisticated. The main ingredient is meat. Two most popular dishes - chuuszuury and bu... are tasty if you get used to this particular taste. Chuuszuur is a cake with meat filling inside, friend and the other dish, a cake with meat filling but cooked. Those two things are sold almost everywhere. It is better to choose the cleaner bars, as after eating the danger of some complications is less;)
Favorite Dish: Those dishes hardly can be called good. It is just something everybody should try, but its nothing to lick your fingers after
Anatolia Turkish Restaurant: a Turkish Restaurant
Gheriglio and I went out for dinner and found this restaurant...it is located in a very good position in the centre...you can have a very good kebab Iskender...and we have a great ice-cream!! go for it!!! :)
Favorite Dish: As I told you, choose the kebab and the ice-cream!!!!
Things vary from place to...
Things vary from place to place, so I like drinking beer in Han Braue in summer time, they serve outside. Pizza de la Case has the best pizzas in the City. Seoul is nice but little bit expensive. Berlin Burger is perfect for a quick bite.
The Steakhouse does western food and so is a little pricey. It's on baga toirog.
I had a set lunch menu for 12000(£4) and Anya's pasta was 13,500.
English spoken and good service.
