This is great place not only for vegan vegetarians, but also for those who would like to eat light food. Food is excellent and tasty with variety of cuisines: national -mongolian, russian, european, east asian etc. Great service and a pleasant place to visit with a family.

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

Shared the chef salad, chickpea salad, and Mongolian combo plate with a friend, and it was delicious and filling. As a bonus, we met the woman who founded this place when she was just 17! She's now a singer and cultural ambassador based out of LA and UB.

A visit to Luna Blanca is a must-do in Ulaanbator. A friend and I were told it was the best vegan in the city, and we were not disappointed. The Mongolian dumplings were delicious and the restaurant is not for profit, run for a good cause.

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 returning because of... More
