    Initial service was great, the staff were all very friendly. Food was great, interesting and good variety. Unfortunately we didn’t get a chance to stay for our dessert of the 5 course dinner even though we’d been there 2 hours already. We waited half hour for our mains and the wines we ordered half way through never arrived. I think they were just too busy and didn’t seem like a lot of staff. Overall it was great till we started getting hungry waiting.

    The genuine Mongolian yurt is so unobtrusive we didn’t know it was there - a colleague mentioned it so we thought we’d try it for a birthday celebration on a Wednesday night. We chose the Kings Set with matched wines. Our waiter was very good at explaining all the dishes and how they had matched the wines. He was attentive without being intrusive. The food was absolutely amazing. It came at just he right pace. The dessert wine was not to our taste but we are not connoisseurs. Planning to go again with Sydney visitors in 2-3 weeks time.

    Amazing food and amazing service. Food delivery for mains was a little slow (although staff were very good at keeping us updated and apologetic) and there was an issue with an overcharged payment for tip - unsure what happened there however was still a great experience and the food was superb

    I love coming here, we always get a full cultural experience! Mugi and team provide excellent service and are great at answering all the questions we have about the Mongolian culture and the food - the ankle bones are so cool?? We have tried almost everything on the menu. I highly recommend all the entrees - my favourite are the ox tongue and the pate! For mains, my favourite would have to be the Mongolian barbecue. So flavourful and a hit with the kids too! Definitely come here for a great experience and fun time out.

    A little gem for food enthusiasts, Naadam restaurant offered an authentic dining experience for our family of 4. Every dish is carefully curated based on the traditional Nomadic way of life, with a slight modern twist for some of them to bring out their flavour and texture even more. Service was impeccable, and we were lucky to have Ganby, the owner of the restaurant to explain the rich stories behind some of the dish, which added to our experience. The "knucklebone" game set on the table kept our kids entertained, and we all took the opportunity to each check our fortune for the New Year and notably all came out good. We sadly arrived like an hour late to our booking, as we drove up from Melbourne for the night, but the restaurant staff were friendly, recommending dishes over the phone to ensure we send our order to the kitchen before they close for the night. We loved the overall experience and would highly recommend to everyone, who is interested in trying out authentic dishes showcasing creative Nomadic Mongolian hospitality. We'll back back again at the end of this year and can't wait what this establishment has evolved into over time, would absolutely enjoy great wine pairing next time, we'll make sure we arrive on time!

    Just experienced an exquisite feast at a Mongolian cuisine restaurant where hospitality reigned supreme. The owner( Gambi)’s exemplary service included detailed explanations of each dish, infusing cultural narratives that enriched the dining experience. The menu, a tapestry of Mongolian culture, invited us into a world of unique flavors. Highlighting the meal were tastings of traditional fermented mare's milk and Mongolian milk tea, which we thoroughly enjoyed. It was a delightful culinary adventure.

    Dinner, in the yurt, last night was a great, 'something different' experience. Ambience, food and full experience wise. The time our host/owner(?) of the restaurant spent with us, explaining the dishes, the history of the yurt etc. added hugely to our night out. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

    I really enjoyed the set menu. The only problem was we picked the duck for the main and we got one duck Maryland cutlet between two people so it was hard to share/cut up. I was still a bit hungry so we ended up getting a hot pot as well which was great. The service was excellent and they were really nice and explained the ingredients and about how to food related to Mongolian culture.

    Their food is true to origins. Not all dishes are strongly spiced. This was my second experience eating in a yurt, and it brought back conversational memories of my first. I am glad I went to Naadam for dinner.
