Part dining experience and part theatre Khublai Khan’s is inspired by the custom of 13th century Mongolian warriors to cook their food on up turned shields over camp fires. The large, vibrant restaurant in Glasgow’s trendy Merchant City.
The cuisine is not traditional Mongolian though, it’s kind of a unique concept. Diners choose from a a buffet of meats and vegetables, rice, noodles and spices and then take it up to the grill where you can watch it being cooked before it is returned to you or brought back to your table. The experience is great fun, and it’s entertaining watching the chefs, but the main attraction of the restaurant is the extensive selection of meats and seafood, including the pretty exotic. Where else can you enjoy zebra, springbok, and kangaroo in the one meal?
There are great value lunch and pre theatre options available, but most people opt for the full Mongolian buffet, where you can visit the grill as many times as you like, to ensure you’ve eaten the maximum possible number of animals. Popular for celebrations and large parties it’s also fun to compare your creations with fellow diners and tweak your spices and oils to really bring the most out of your wild boar or shark.
For a dining experience with a different you don’t want to miss Khublai Khans.
