After eating in Luna Blanca many times in the past few years, I must say it is the best vegan restaurant I have ever found and certainly one of the best restaurants of all types in Ulaanbaatar. I am not a vegetarian, much less a vegan; so I approach the food with some suspicion. But I keep... read more

I had read fantastic reviews of this place and went there exclusively to try. Dont expect a fancy place, but the service is top class. The person serving me was the Owner's friend and he recommended some dishes to me. I tried the Mongolian Platter, but I found the fried stuff too oily for my liking. It could fill tissues... More

If the Mutton sweats get the better of you when passing through Mongolia, go for a vegan detox at Luna Blanca. Recommended by our guidebook, this was one of the best meals during three weeks of travelling and eating out. Innovative, fresh, and tasty, the vegan food here was a delight. The service was even better - never before has... More

This is a refreshing change - the people here are very welcoming and helpful. We even bought cakes to go for our onward travels. The food is fine - we are not vegetarians so personally I prefer actual vegetables to the use of soy as 'pretend meat' - but all tasty and we ate there more than once.

My friend works as an expat in Mongolia. She brought me here despite knowing im not a vegetarian. She told me I wont regret it and that I should try it. True enough! the food was very delicious! I loved the kimchi jjigae so much that I still dream about it today. The owners are very nice, too. My friend... More

Close to Sukhbaatar Square, it is definitely worth checking out this upstairs vegan restaurant. There is a wonderfully broad selection, generous serving sizes, and beautifully presented. The atmosphere was also very pleasant and conducive to conversation. I got to know some fellow travellers over a lovely selection of lunchtime meals, that were easy for us to share. The drinks here... More

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.
