Amazing food and wonderful friendly service. Highly recommend!

We ate here a few times. The staff are so friendly, very professional and can speak English. The food was awesome and very tasty. You would not believe there was no meat! We really enjoyed dining here and the prices were very reasonable. Highly recommend having lunch or dinner here.

A really enjoyable lunch had here with vey accommodating staff to such a big group of us. I was apprehensive at first at going completely vegan however was pleasantly surprised at how tasty and filling the dishes were. My group more or less had all the menu and shared and I couldn't knock a single dish. Service was fantastic! Recommend... More

Well located vegetarian restaurant in a meat lovers country. The food is tasty, lovely presentation and generous amount. Good service with a good English level. Just slow serving. So if you are in a rush it won't be the place.

As many reviewers have noted, UB is a challenging place if you don't eat meat. Fresh fish is a rarity, and most restaurants do not routinely make non-meat dishes that are real meals. Luna Blanca is a warm, welcoming place with many great options. I found the staff there so sweet, warm, and concerned about their customers. They even offered... More

We went to this place about 6 times and got well acquainted with the menu. The place was an oasis in the midst of 'meatland' in UB. In fact there are a few vegan restaurants in UB. We were there during the 5 day Naadam holiday period and most places were closed. Thankfully Lunar Blanca was open everyday for lunch... More

Dear Dee, Thank you ever so much for such a wonderful review! We have been working for the past 7 years to pioneer the promotion of vegan food in Mongolia as a non-profit restaurant. It has not been easy, but seeing reviews such as yours motivates us to keep going! Peace and Happiness, Altanzaya More
