My wife and I met a vegetarian friend of hers here for lunch. My wife is a bit of a carnivore and was caught by surprise that they had no meat options, but even she was pleased with the food. Among the things we tried the Malaysian style dish was fair but unremarkable, and the pumpkin soup was pretty good... More

This was my first time visiting Ulaabaatar and I only stayed for two nights. I chose this vegan restaurant as my farewell lunch after two consecutive days of eating big meaty meals. And I was so thrilled that I made the excellent choice. What a gem - a nice quiet and warm place. I tried the sea buckthorn hot drink... More

Following a morning visit to Gandantegchinlen Monastery I had lunch at this delightful cafe within a Buddhist Center. It was clean, service was swift and friendly and the menu was extensive.

Before visiting Luna Blanca, remember one thing - you are in Mongolia. A country where the traditional herding lifestyle means the diet centres on meat and dairy. Understandable. When it's -35 and you're working outside, a fresh avocado salad is just not going to provide the required amount of energy to keep you warm. However, you will be surprised and... More

This was a great vegan restaurant. Good prices and delicious food! I had the kimchi jigae stew, a smoothie and the chocolate mud cake for dessert. Amazing! Good atmosphere and great service too.

This place is amazing. It's cheap and has some really high quality food. Especialy before or after a tour through Mongolia I recommend it, because normally you get tons of meat to eat.

Me and my boyfriend went here to check out the vegan food, as we like to try different sorts of food. When I got there the waitress immediately brought me a cup of hot water for my hiccups, it was really kind of her. She also made excellent recommendations for what to eat. We had the Mongolian combo plate, which... More
