In Mongolia, tipping in restaurants, cafes, and bars is not necessary or expected. If you enjoyed the service, a 10% tip is immensely appreciated by your server, but don't feel obligated to leave this unless the service was above and beyond. In that case, we recommended leaving a tip to acknowledge and encourage this type of customer service. Money is a great motivator, after all.
