The sign on the wall inside the front door at Genghis Grill at Clayton and Clarkson in the Fountain Plaza pretty much says it all – and I paraphrase here:  “Genghis Khan’s armies did so well, because it ate better than anyone else”.  And if he and his army had eaten at our area’s first true Mongolian Bar-B-Q  they’d still be eating better than anyone else.

First the premise of Genghis Grill – The Mongolian Stir Fry. It’s a build your own bowl, fast casual, Asian stir-fry concept – you are your own chef – that’s both fun to do and healthy.  Here’s how it works. When you’re seated your given your own silver bowl to begin the process.  That “process” starts with the bowl in hand for a trip through what owner Brian Durbin call’s “Khan’s Kitchen”.  It’s a five step process that allows you to fill your silver bowl with your own dinner entrees from selected from a huge choice of proteins, spices, vegetables, sauces and starches.  In other words: your meat, spices, veggies, hot or mild sauces and rice, noodles or pasta.  From there, you hand off your choices to the real chefs and they take care of the bar-b-q process – on a huge, round, grill top with a surface temperature of around 600 degrees.  They cook and mix it all together for what turns out to be a great taste treat.

You can do the “traditional” choices if you like Teriyaki Chicken, Beef Broccoli, Sweet and Sour and the like – or you can make up any combination you want, from over 70 choices in Kahn’s Kitchen.  That’s where the fun comes in.  If you are an adventurous eater you can mix and match as you please.  Pile it high and have at!  We did a combination of meats and chicken (although there are great seafood selections too) loaded our bowls with veggies (about 18 choices) and then the sauce.  I went for the medium spicy sauce, my wife for a firebomb of a mixture.  We were on our way.  We both opted for Udon noodles, but could have had rice, brown rice, or pasta as an alternative and that was that.  No we just sat back and waited for our choices to be cooked.  And cooked to perfection they were.  Wow – what great flavors.

Genghis Grill is a great, fun place for the whole family – because it’s easy for the kids to take part and make their own meal – with just a little help from mom and dad.  It’s a healthy place to eat too with all those choices and it’s got a price point that everyone will like.  There’s also a small, full service bar.  The space is bright and airy making for a great atmosphere.  Cary out is also a big feature – in fact you build your own bowl online at Genghis Grill’s website – genghisgrill.com  Talk about convenient – you choose, they cook and you pick it up and eat!

Genghis Grill is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner and ready to welcome you and your family.  Stop in – casual, quick and very, very good.
