We visited twise during our stay. the restaurant is located within walking distance from hotels in Old Bagan Area, however, the road has a only few lighting in the evening. The food selection is wide, you can ask friendly staff for "menu of the day" or their suggestion. Taste is good for foreigner, not too spicy or oily. You may... More

Being vegetarian and reading the positive reviews,we had to give this place a try! The staff friendly and welcoming, and as soon as we set at the table,one of the staff lit a mosquito coil under the table which was great! The menu has a good selection of salads and curries.We ordered a papaya and avocado salads which were ok... More

Please disregard the reviews that state that this place is expensive: unless you are on a seriously restrictive budget you will find this place to be very cheap. I'm talking $20 for appetizers, entrees, and drinks for two persons. And it is good food with pretty quick service. Furthermore, the setting is very nice and relaxed. Not everything we ate... More

This makes the perfect lunch pitstop from all the exploring. The food is so good and all vegetarian! It's nearly always full and I'm glad for them! It's a good price and the flavours are delightful.

Really enjoyed Be Kind To Animals - really good choice on the menu, lots of local dishes. I had a coconut curry, tamarind juice and even gazpacho soup. Efficient service, great value, would really recommend this restaurant after a day of cycling around Bagan!

The food was ok if slightly expensive. If your not a vegetarian you will still find something to suit you on the menu. The only problem was that the restaurant seemed to be geared mainly towards tourists and if i had to make my choice again i would have preferred a more "local" restaurant.

If you are paying high prices for a menu full of western food like caeser salad and guacamole you have found the right place. We had heard a lot about this place from a friend who visited two years prior but it seems the Lonely Planet fame has gotten to their heads. We ordered the closest thing we could find... More

We wouldn't normally choose a vegetarian restaurant but were persuaded to try Moon because of the good reviews on TA. We weren't disappointed. As avocados were in season, the guacamole was mouthwateringly good and the fresh vegetable rolls were delicious too. We still preferred Star Beam next door but you could try both on consecutive evenings!

The staff is accommodating! That's one thing that you should consider when eating in a restaurant. They are preparing your meal in the first place! Haha :) I had the lime juice which is just refreshing after a morning cycling around the temples of Bagan. I also had the friend noodle which is very tasty. My friend can't stop talking... More
