Many of our ingredients are home made including items such as vegan mayonaisse, hot sauces, vegan mock meats, several types of dumplings and so on. From the onset, the restaurant has been run in a manner that is not profit seeking, choosing instead to pay relatively good salaries, engaging in community outreach and philanthropy, while keeping prices as low as possible and serving high quality ingredients.

My travel partner and I enjoyed our lunch here. I particularly liked their homemade kimchi and Russian-inspired borscht. This is a great spot to enjoy a vegan meal while taking a break from touring the city.

Everybody was saying it's exceptional, finally I went to taste and check if it was an outstanding place. Result : yes, it's all vegetarian and alcohol free but I will not return there. As soon as you enter the place smell "old style house". A lot of fusion food in fact, inspired by Indian cuisine. The Hushuur was very oily... More

Delicious and varied meals including a range of soups, salads and mains of seansonal vegatables. The staff were helpful with choices. The meals were well priced and the location was not far from the main square but in a quiet area with good access.

No-smoking, no alcohol, no meat, but amazing tastes. You've got to try the ginger and sesame seed tea. Smell the tea without stirring, then give it a whirl and breathe in the ginger and brown sugar. You'll be chewing the seeds until the end of the meal - lovely. The seabuckthorn juice is interesting, but not especially different or worth... More

After a tour through Mongolia, you'll probably have seen enough meat for a while. Luna Blanca serves excellent vegetarian dishes!

I walked into here not knowing what to expect and was amused that it was decorated like a Chinese restaurant but served delicious international vegetarian food! Highly recommend the fresh Seabuckthorn juice. I had the Mongolian plate and appreciated a vegetarian take on the foods I had had previously stuffed with tough mutton. Prompt service and seemed popular with expats... More

We dined here twice while in Ulaanbaatar. The restaurant was clean, the staff spoke good English, and the menu included plenty of local options. We tried the Kotleta Russkaya and the Mongol Combo Plate, both of which were good sized portions and reasonably priced. On our second visit, the owner approached us to ask about our experience. It had been... More

Not really Indian, not really Mongolian. You can feel the freshness of the food. At one point I forgot that I'm actually having a vegan food. Clean restaurant, good staff and easy to find the restaurant.

This was some of the best vegetarian food I have ever eaten. The portions are huge and delicious. Great lunch spot, though when we were there it was very busy and hard to get a table, so plan ahead a little bit.
