About the restaurant
If Genghis Khan were alive today and tended to gallop across the tundra of Shropshire rather than the tundra of Central Asia, he would have stopped at Jenko’s Brazilian & Mongolian BBQ in Telford for a good pillage. It’s a log cabin and not a yurt, and food hygiene practices have improved considerably over the last few centuries, but this restaurant at The Compasses Inn along Ketley’s Beverley Road offers all the meaty goodness a proper culinary marauder could need, plus plenty of vegetarian and sweet-toothed options as well. Depending on what day you visit Jenko’s, you can tuck into the following delicious fare:
Tue-Thu: Brazilian BBQ
Fri & Sat: Mongolian BBQ
Sun: Traditional roasts
Great food and the cooking experience was something else , they cook the food on a giant grill and its awesome watching them cook it
Great food, great atmosphere. Recommend dining/ drinking here to anyone.
The food was fantastic. That was where the great bits stopped. There were only 2 young girls to look after the whole restaurant. We had to wait 15 mins to order a drink on arrival. Not once did we get asked if the food was ok or if we required more drinks. When we finally grabbed the waitresses attention to order another drink, she forgot to fetch it! After eating we waited over 20 minutes for the dessert menu whilst all the staff had a coffee and chat with each other. I'm glad I went for the food but wont return for the service. Shame really
Certainly you wouldn’t want to throw down the gauntlet with the dudes at Jenko’s Brazilian & Mongolian BBQ, but beneath their grizzled exterior they’re a friendly bunch. The best way to attack Jenko’s is to go for the all-you-can-eat option – choose your weapons, er, ingredients, herbs, spices and Mongolian sauces, and then surrender your plate to the chefs, who’ll cook it to juicy, tender death in front of you. Thankfully, it’s not just Telford’s carnivores who are catered to here at Ketley’s Compasses Inn on Beverley Road. There are plenty of vegetarian options like the garlic mushrooms and spinach tartlets to start, with aubergine and other veggies making it to the grill as well.
There’s also a huge suite of homemade desserts and liquor-infused delights to get you on your horse in sweet style. The mandarin and Cointreau cheesecake, Bailey’s toffee meringue, Calypso coffees and the Yurt pavlova all bear our stamp of approval, while the fruits of the forest crumble promises a ‘Gobi desert bursting with fruit with a choice of cream, custard or ice cream’. Needless to say, Jenko’s Brazilian & Mongolian BBQ is a restaurant that encourages (if not demands at swordpoint) loyalty among Telford’s adventurous diners, especially those who like to pick and choose when it comes to feasting. If this sounds like the kind of culinary maneuver you can get behind, book a table and find Jenko’s at The Compasses Inn down Ketley’s Beverley Road.
