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.

This is no doubt one of the best restaurants in the region. Anytime I visit this place I am greatly glad. They preserve their very high level service and the topmost level of dishes they offer. You are always happy with this place. Highly recommended.

The lamb ribs are fabulous! The dumplings are good if you like dumplings. Pricey for not so pretty dining place:

Great place to unwind after a long day! Food is amazing! I recommend starting out with the Pelmeni appetizer, than moving onto the Bansh entree. The atmosphere is comfortable and inviting. The food is quality and staff are kind.

This is my new favorite restaurant in Santa Cruz: interesting, delicious, and satisfying food, and a welcoming setting. The service is impeccable. We will definitely go back again and again, the only downside is that there's really only one vegetarian option (the veg dumplings), but they are really lovely and come with tasty salads. Can't wait to return!

I want to keep this amazing place all to myself but I wish Oyunaa and Skip so much success!! The food is AMAZING, fresh and so incredibly addicting. When we ask our six year old where he wants to eat it's always "Oyunaa's". The service is great and everyone who works there is sweet. You cannot go wrong!!!
