The food here is so good! I would highly recommend the vegetarian dumplings for meat eaters too! and the habanero soy sauce is killer!

Enjoyed our dinner here! First dine in in over a year and our server made it a super pleasant experience. Ordered the pelmeni, bansh, and lamb riblets. Try the hot sauces if you like spice, the mushroom sauce is also good for those who don't want to gamble with how hot the habaneros are this batch, we got lucky with a spicy batch Pelmeni was good, but a little on the small side? I'm not familiar with the dish, but I think it would taste amazing if they were a bit bigger on the filling. Bansh was also very good, lots of dumplings and carrots, goes great with the sauces! Finally, the lamn riblets. Very good as well! Cooked pretty perfectly, nice and crisp. Carrot salad goes well.

Feeling hungry but coming off of  four days of suffering from food poisoning (be wary of cold, leftover turkey!) I wanted something filling, tasty but not too spicy,  the chicken bansh soup with a side of rice hit the spot. Came with a delicious mushroom based sauce that I wouldn't have chosen, but will from now on. Did not taste like mushrooms. I will definitely make this a regular place to visit, excited to try more items on the menu.

Amazing comforting food with a unique and delicious flavor profile! Lovely hidden gem of a spot for dumplings, goulash, and beet and other amazing soups. Delicious specials with lamb or chicken and a mushroom sauce condiment that is out of this world.Superb local beer selection on tap and great wines available as well. All in all a perfect night out or in with togo orders. Also has a small cozy bar when open... this restaurant is a must visit!

This restaurant is the one I always prefer. I go to plenty of restaurants but to this restaurant I keep coming back again and again. The team is very helpful and the food they offer is so appetizing. I never decline to have a good dinner in this place. Highly recommended.

Love the food. Especially the sauces you can get. I love the mushroom and the garlic chili one the most.

WOW! I have been meaning to come to this place for months.Hubby and I finally decided to order for takeout. We had never had Mongolian food before and we're not sure what exactly the flavor profiles were, we looked at the menu and it looks sparse and plain so we still were not sure. Then we called and the woman on the phone was VERY helpful, describing dishes and helping us narrow down what we wanted. We were NOT disappointed!! We ordered the vegetarian dumplings, the chicken dumplings in broth and the beef noodle soup. We can't wait to try more items!!!

Original and delicious food. We eat here often and we get the soup anytime we feel even the slightest bit like we might be getting a cold. It's health and delicious and made with care. One of those spots where it feels like you're being welcomed into a home and served food as a guest to a family.

Oyunaa's is one of only 5 *truly authentic* Mongolian restaurants in all of the United States so you have to take advantage of this rare find. This place is phenomenal. It's a small menu and that's just fine with me. We had an entree and two appetizers between two of us and everything was great. Oyunaa (the owner) and Annie (our server) are delightful people if you're lucky enough to get to know them. We'll definitely be back.
