To find us: Go to our website for map directions or type "luna blanca restaurant" in a google search.Founded in the Spring of 2008 by three Mongolian women dedicated to promoting healthy and compassionate living. Serving a savory menu of Asian, Western and Mongolian cuisine, all foods are 100% Vegan (no animal products of any kind are used). 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. Luna Blanca Restaurant is smoke and alcohol free. We are child friendly with high seats and a special children’s menu. Special orders, catering, take-out are available.

very good place for vegetarians also for meatlovers

During the tour I've been eating a lot of beef and mutton. After the tour I was so glad that I had a chance to have some light and flavorful dinner. In Mongolia I think It's hard to find a restaurant that serve by vegetarian foods.

Even though this is a vegan restaurant ALL the food is incredible no matter if you're a meat lover or a vegetarian. The food is amazingly flavored, fresh and well balanced. Still think about the food I ate there now and only wish I had asked for the recipe when I was there. Staff are also really friendly, accommodating and... More

As a long-time vegetarian, I love having the chance to try traditional, local food. I came here with a group of work colleagues, all meat lovers, who raved about the food as well! We went back twice on our trip. The food is flavorful, authentic and light. Definitely a winner.

After many weeks of eating mutton with noodles, mutton with rice, this is a welcome respite and in a nice location in UB.

I'm not a vegetarian, but after weeks of meat and instant noodles I really felt to get something "good". And it was like a rehabilitation for my body. First I didn't recognised that this is all soya. Very tasty and fresh. I tried the "spicy" - really great! My friend choose the pasta. Big portion, in my opinion a little... More

A vegan option in Ulaanbaatar is a rare treat and Luna Blanca delivers a delicious array of veggie options that are a twist on traditional Mongolian-style food. The dumplings were particularly great! Recommended for meat and non-meat eaters alike.

Great place to eat and very convenient since it is between the National History Museum and Zanabazar Museum of Fine Art (although on the opposite side of the street). It is based largely on soy-meat replacements with texture so accurate it can be a bit of a shock. So it would be a good compromise choice for groups with mixed... More

The food is ok here - not bad but I think you can find better. Good vegetarian foods. I've only been once though and some of my friends here really like the food.
