Xan Mongolie BBQ - NW Calgary

Has anyone else tried Xan Mongolie Grill near the NW Costco at Beacon Hill? I was there on Friday night, after reading ok reviews on other food forums, and must say it was medicore at best. The service was fantastic, prompt and attentive. The selection of sliced foods was decent and full as were the sauces to choose from. I had high hopes. But the meat (beef, chicken and pork) was so TOUGH!! and a few pieces of beef had that old sour taste. We ended up picking out most of the meat and eating the veggies only, but at $2.69/100gr that waste adds up! The rice was so stickey it was just a blob you could barely cut through with a spoon. Mixed with sauce it was barely ok.

But on a positive note, I had a very nice raspberry/mango cheesecake to fill me up.

I would love to hear others' experiences at Xan. I am often shopping up there but I despise all those chains like Montana'a, Swiss Chalet, Ricky's, etc. These big box mall places are full of those. Is there anywhere in that area worth eating??
