Interesting flavors of varying spice combinations in basic meats. Fresh and claimed organic. Sauces are interesting, including the house made mushroom sauce, which is earthy and uniquely good. I had the beef-based gulyash and my wife the 20+ spice "fall off the bone" chicken special....More

This was my first experience with Mongolian food, and I was pleasantly surprised by the familiarity (dumplings, roasted chicken, lamb, coleslaw, etc.) and the unique flavors. Freshly prepared (there is a little wait time after you place your order) and locally sourced food. This place...More

We found this restaurant by accident. I think I was looking at Asian restaurants in Santa Cruz on a duckduckgo search, then jumped to yelp and then to tripadvisor. After reading good reviews, I looked at their website. The menu online made me realize that...More

Food is filling and tasty. The homemade sauces were a tasty addition to the meal. The music made us feel like we were in Mongolia. Our server was delightful.

It is a very nice, well decorated, clean, small place. Food was delicious! We ordered three dinner plates to share, so everyone could try Mongolian cuisine. Food was very fresh, made per order. We were lucky to come on Sunday at 5:00 pm and to...More
