I will not be returning. The service was HORRIBLE and they charge you extra money just for coming in at dinner time. They are always out of things at the bars. Trying to cut food cost at the expense of your customers.

All I have to say is the place went down hill. I will not be going to this location again.

Initially service a bit rocky but spoke to manager and he explained due to scheduling error waitstaff was confused as to area. After speaking to manager staff became more attentive and service improved to the point I wasn't upset. Will return.

Long lines to wait for food to be cooked. Line blocks customers from getting their food from the self serve areas and have to keep moving out of the way. Had to guess where to stand to be next in line. It is very unorganized as the line is growing near the grilling station. Steak strips had a lot of fat.

Would only recommend to carryout, as the food was great. Staff was courteous, attentive and helpful. The dining area floor was sticky and dirty. Mens rest room was disgusting. Menus were sticky. First time visit, so not sure if this was the norm, but desperately needed a cleaning crew right away!

Friend birthday. The waitress was at the table twice the entire visit. Some pieces of chicken were not fully cooked so I had to make a different bowl.

We were disappointed with this restaurant. We have eaten there many times over the last few years. It was early on a Friday and the place wasn't busy as would expect or have seen. We see why now. The floors were filthy and sticky. The tables were the same. We made a reservation for 7:30 thinking they would be really busy as before. Got there and the place was about 1/3 full and we had to wait. Until 7:30 for the table. The food tables for the meats and veggies were not being kept full or even kept up. The sauces and seasonings were all in bad shape too. The cooks were not enthusiastic or entertaining and only half assed cleaned between meals and the whole area looked like a war zone. The food is really only to taste by what you choose to put in and on your bowl . The cooks still didn't help make it any better by the laziness and attention to each persons food. They didn't work the ingredients like they were trained to and were lack luster in prep and serving of everyones meals.
The best thing I can say is while waited for 15 minutes at the bar, the girl tending bar was very pleasant and willing to make everyone at the bar happy even though she had about 1/4 of the tables near the bar to tend to also while 3 girls hung out at the hostess stand.

I love going to this Mongolian BBQ. The servers are friendly, the food is hot and fresh and the value is just right for the family of 3 or 4.

Its too cold. The vents are directly over some tables and would cool your food way down very quickly. The grill masters were very nice and the few bites of warm food I had was good.

Food was delicious. Was not happy with service or that we had reservations and still had to wait when there was empty tables. Was told no white rice. Price I think was overly priced for one bowl

Place has gone down hill since the last time we went. Something has changed since the last time we were there. They were understaffed, a lot of the meat was frozen solid and could't be picked out. The grillers were bored out of their mind, and could barely be bothered to be there, and it was a mess. Bowls and food all over the place around the grill

The food was excellent the server never told us about the special to get unlimited bowls for the price of one bowl, and they canceled my reservation initially so I was worried I would not get my hundred points and had to wait around to talk to a manager to have it re-initiated in the system I love Mongolian I will go back

We reserved a table almost 2 hours in advance and when we got there we still had to wait almost 20 minutes for a table because someone didn’t pay attention we were told. Our waiter was good but she refused to give me my student discount with my card shown for the bowls that we didn’t get a refill on and got sassy with us it seemed. Then because I’m pregnant when I asked the cook that took my bowl to please make sure my steak is well done he got an attitude and rolled his eyes and continued to joke around with another cook that was back there. The food tasted great but the customer service was bad.

Mediocre at best. Wait at lunch wasn't long but the "grill master" wasn't paying much attention to what was in the bowls and cooked everyone's food at the same length of time. My protein was only seafood and it, along with my vegetables were burned to almost a crisp.

Server must’ve been new as she didn’t know the drink I ordered was a beer. Asked for sour cream and had to track down another server to follow up on that request. Chicken wasn’t fully cooked from the grill, chicken and shrimp fried rice from the back kitchen was disgusting and taken off the bill. I haven’t been to this place in a long time, and Saturday’s experience reminded me why.

Specifically at this location, BD's Mongolian grill in Dearborn, the last several times I have gone there and either myself or my friends have made an OpenTable reservation, I later wondered, "Why bother?" A reservation is supposed to mean you go there at a certain time to get seated at that time. I can understand taking a few minutes to get the table ready. But when I arrive and tell them I have an OpenTable reservation and they say it's going to be 20 to 25 minutes, and I see others arriving and being seated before us, I wonder why I made a reservation? A previous time, we were told it would be 10 to 15 minutes, three separate times while standing there, and the total weight was closer to 45 minutes, WITH an OpenTable reservation. This last time, not only did I have to wait much longer than I would have expected with a reservation, but I actually received an email while I was standing there that said my OpenTable reservation was canceled. WHAT?? Sounds to me like a way to scan OpenTable out of there commission they get for the reservation. There is one specific person that has been at the front the last few times that seems to me to be the problem. This last time he told me that my reservation was treated like a call ahead, and it "usually cuts the wait time in half". That is not a reservation by definition. An open table reservation made for 7:15 means I expect to be seated at 7:15 or within a few minutes of that. I'm strongly considering not going to BD's Mongolian Grill in Dearborn anymore because of these shady issues, which means I may not go to the restaurant in general anymore since other locations would not be as convenient to get to.

The food was terrible. Not clean environment. Buffet looked like the food was sitting in germs for a long time. Just overall bad experience. Dirt dishes, both greasy and with left over food residue on them.

Service was terrible. The men grilling the food were too preoccupied with counting their tips in front of the customers then focusing on the food. The food was covered in the black burnt stuff from the grill it didn’t even taste good. The waitress were never around and the waitress station was covered with too many dirty dishes and plates it was just disgusting. Bus boy trays were overflowing with dirty dishes and left sitting on tables. It was defiantly disappointing and an awful experience and I won’t be returning.

We had to wait for 25 minutes and the restaurant was empty! Slow services once we were seated. One griller and when we got back to the table we still had no rice, tortillas or drinks. Won't be back.

This location used to be good. There was no soup bowls or spoons the entire time we were there even after we asked. I had to wait for the steak buns to be filled for roughly 15 minutes along with a line of people. My son and husband completed their meals before I even got back to the table. There were also empty bins on both the salad bar and dinner stations. It's a serve yourself restaurant, the food should be available. The cooks were rude and unfriendly. The only positive was our server, she was great.

Staff didn’t seem very happy from the person at the door, people making the food to the waitstaff. We didn’t get checked on and needed refills on drinks for quite a while. On a good note the food bars are well kept with fresh food and clean.

We were traveling through the area with 4 adults and 3 children. The youngest is visually impaired so his hearing is escalated. The noice level was entirely to extreme for him. Not really set up for a nice family dinner. This is more of a party place. Food and service were good but i probably would not choose to go back.
