Updated: September 19, 2013 9:16AM



VIP Mongolian Bar and Grill, 5233 W. 159th St., Oak Forest, recently opened in the former home of Villa Rivera Mexican restaurant.

The family-owned restaurant specializes in eastern and central Asian cuisine and offers some old-fashioned American favorites, according to a news release issued by the village.

“Although the owners are finishing up some improvements to the outside of the building, the interior space has undergone a complete transformation,” Adam Dotson, community development director, said. “The menu is fun and inventive and really brings an exciting flavor to town. The restaurant is a welcome addition to the 159th Street corridor.”

Customers can create their own stir-fry, choosing from a wide variety of meats and seafood, fresh vegetables, salads and sauces and spices. The food is then prepared by chefs on a 5-foot-long grill.

The restaurant is open 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Sundays and Tuesdays through Thursdays, and from 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
