Used a voucher, overall this was a great deal and a good night out. Staff were friendly and the service was excellent.

It was a busy Saturday night so every single table was full and there were people everywhere. The food is what you make it so in terms of flavor and cooking there were no issues.

The only downsides would be.

- They seemed to be understaffed when we were there, plates were piling up, food and bowls were running out. (This could have been a one off)
- Interior is rather lackluster and its pretty cramped.


In terms of what we paid it was a great deal and a awesome night out, HOWEVER if we were to pay the full price + drinks this would be a rather different review and I would recommend another similar place in Palmy that is roughly the same price.

We celebrated a birthday at Genghis khan restaurant with family. The food was lovely and the service was great. We had a family photo at the end of the night, recommended to people to try it out if not been there yet. We will definitely return …. Thank you again…….

The worse place in palmy, staff were rude, used a voucher for a meal and a drink, they had no wine then came over 20 min later with some wine in a glass an it tasted like turps.
This place is dirty, smelly and no way will we return since we had 13 people with us and we all were gutted that the service and venue were worth the voucher, stay away…….
Also no toilet paper or hand towels in ladies rest room on a Saturday night, seems like service has taken a back seat.

Awful experience at Genghis Khan tonight, we were using our deal voucher. We arrived, blonde lady seemed less than impressed that she would have to give customers attention. Showed us to a table and left straight away. We hadn’t dined in this style of restaurant before so were left wondering what to do. After a few minutes I went and asked if we were to just help ourselves, what do we do? Her reply was ” what, do you want me to show you around or something?”rudely. Then just pointed and said what to do. We were not offered drinks at any stage. We had an entree, ate that then paid and left, hubby had some stir fry cooked for him but it was raw so that was last straw. The place is seriously filthy and smelly where the raw meat is stored, raw meat splatters up the wall and tongs IN the raw meat that everyone puts their hands on no doubt cross contaminating. Overflowing bin behind the counter. Greasy dirty cutlery, chipped plates, wobbly chairs…Lack of atmosphere, unattentive staff. Why the fantastic reviews previously I have absolutely no idea, maybe this restaurant is getting mixed up with the same style Mongolian BBQ restaurant Gengys on Broadway which is WAY WAY better than Genghis Khan on The Square.

I have dined here before but my partner and three year old hadn’t and we all had a delicious meal and loved the experience. The entrees – soup, bread rolls and selection of hot food were all fresh and very tasty. The selection of meats, vegetables, sauces and spices for the stirfry was amazing!! Something for every taste and the chef was friendly and cooked everything to perfection. Our three year old especially loved the pancakes cooked to order then smothered in icecream, a wide range of sauces and lollies. The chocolate cake was also delicious. All round a fantastic dining experience at a terrific price.

First time experience at Ginjis and it was amazing!! I loved the self service choices, seafood and marinated meats were to die for, so easy and delicious, and my 5 year old really got into it and loved watching the chefs do the cooking in front if her, especially when they made pancakes. real value for money. I’ve only just gotten home from having dinner there and I want to do it all again tomorrow! 5 stars!

A must go place when I visit my family in Palmerston North ! Great food and lots of variety, from salad, soup, hot fries to pancake desert and ice cream. I must have them ALL (love d flavoured chicken and shrimp best). My family like it too. Handy place so I can go straight after shopping in the mall.

Not been here for a while and after the last visit we won’t be going again. Went on a Monday night so very quiet. The soup was very bland, the pre-cooked section was well over cooked, dry and tasted horrible. No rice at all and the noodles just one big congealed lump. Lady at the counter, with not a lot to do, was ready to whisk away your plate as soon as she could. Very poor overall experience.

Not overly impressed, good value if you want lots of cheep meat, but not really my cup of tea. Still worth a try if you haven’t experienced this format.

The range of choice for food is AMAZING. Can’t make any complaints about how the food tastes because you choose your flavours. It was a little hard to understand the waitress but thats ok its an authentic place and I WILL be returning no doubt about that!

Atmosphere? What atmosphere? It reminded me of a workplace cafeteria. Yes, you choose what you want, but I thought everything kind of tasted the same after they’d fried it up. And my pancake was pretty much still raw. Least it’s cheap.

The food is fantastic, service is fine and well priced. The only reason I give it 4 stars is because the atmosphere isn’t amazing… its not bad either though, just kind of bland.

Ginji’s Real Mongolian BBQ Buffet is a great place to eat, right in the heart of Palmerston North, being a buffet, you can choose any combination of fresh ingredients, which are cooked on a huge griddle right in front of you.
The cooks are real pro’s!
You MUST try the pancake dessert, cooked to perfection on a seperate griddle, with it’s own buffet selection of toppings, I’m drooling just thinking about them!
