THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Genghis Khan Restaurant Review

: Genghis Khan's Korean specialties cover a narrow range, and they're definitely tailor-made for Western palates, to the point of tacking on a few teriyaki and tempura dishes. There's a sanitized version of bulgoki (Korea's spicy grilled-beef dish), but most of the pepper and spices are confined to the appetizer list. Kim chee, the classic Korean palate-cleanser of peppery pickled cabbage, delivers a heat level as high as most folks want to go. Don't be surprised to see a whole fried fish on more than one table; it's easily the menu's main attraction, and justifiably so for its contrast of crunch and delicacy. The culture clashes extend to the musical entertainment, provided by a pianist, an occasional soprano, and the restaurant's owner, who happens to be a classical violinist. There are no explosions of color in Genghis Khan's off-white dining room, adorned with an oriental screen in soft pastels, a mirror panel or two and a few paper lanterns.
