The place to eat whenever in Bagan. Authentic Burmese food AND vegetarian. But also non-vegetarians will enjoy the food as well as the hospitality of the family running the place. Apart from the outstanding food you get sound advice to make your visit to this sacred place a blessing!

A friend in Yangon recommended this place and, after chuckling at the name, I told him I wasn't vegetarian and probably not too keen to try this place. We went the first time as we wanted light salads for lunch. Loved it so much that we came back for dinner. Then lunch the next day. The curries are super fresh... More

This post is not clear. There is no place in Bagan called "Be Kind to Animals." There are two vegetarian restaurants located across the street from each other: One called "The Moon" which is the apparently the original, and one called "Yar Pyi" which is the knock-off. Both of them say "Be Kind to Animals" on the sign, but they... More

Nice place in old Bagan, good vegetarian food. Good ambience, very nice staff. Tried a few items, they were all very tasty. And they have a section of smoking and non smoking. Can definitely recommend

Went today and will go again tomorrow. I had a papaya salad (as good as the best ones i had in Thailand), a lentils and tomato/ginger soup and real french fries served with coconut, chillies and tamarind sauces. Plus a bag of irresistible tamarind sweets. Bought one of their cute tee shirts saying be kind to animals. Dont miss the... More

**There are two restaurants next to each other called Be Kind To Animals so I am reviewing the one in the pictures but it is also known as The Moon which seems to be separately rated below** Our group chose to eat here for two dinners and one breakfast during our 2 might stay in Bagan. The food is incredible... More

I ate here for lunch and it was very busy with a nice atmosphere. The menu is big with lots of choice. I had a very nice curry. The staff were really friendly and had brilliant English. They also give really nice tamarind sweets when they hand you the bill.

We had a wide range of vegetarian dishes and agreed that they were all delicious. We enjoyed the unusual combinations of vegetables in the salads. The surroundings were slightly down at heal but the service was friendly and efficient. The pricing was very reasonable.
