“Tasty vegetarian place”
Review of Stupa Cafe - CLOSED

Restaurant details
Reviewed September 8, 2012

Great place for lunch. The food is cheap and tasty. Portion sizes aren't huge but aren't tiny either. I'm a big fan of the pumpkin soup, borsch, and grilled cheese. The veggie khuushuur (fried pancake) is great if you're in a rush. It's half cafeteria, half restaurant. You order your food at the cashier, take your drinks back, and then either pick up your food when its ready or sometimes, if it's not too busy, the waitress will bring it to you at your table.

It's mostly not-Mongolian food at the Stupa Cafe, but it's all vegetarian. Good sized portions and good prices. Friendly staff. I've liked everything I've had here, except for the borscht. And that probably wasn't the fault of the cafe. I'd never had borscht before. ;) I'm particularly fond of the Mongolian Noodles, the Budaa, the penne with broccoli and pine nuts, and the egg salad sandwish. And with the one noted exception, all the soup is wonderful!

it was once a place with a very nice atmosphere, some traditional furniture and very friendly waitresses. a special place to relax the mind and also meet with good people. it became more commercial - unfortunately, but the vegetarian food is tasty and the coffee is still very good.

Stupa café is a great place for lunch or a light meal. It is located in the Buddhist FPMT building by the Zanabazar Museum. The décor is lively with posters of the Dalai Lama with the accompanying words of wisdom. Café style chairs and tables are standard. WIFI is very good and reliable. Nice crowd of young students, the occasional tourist and some office employees from the area.

The service is cordial. You get your food at the counter or served to your table if it is going to take a while.

All dishes are vegetarian. Best vegetarian in town (I like it better than Luna Blanca). Very fresh salads. Tasty noodle dishes and the best vegetarian kushur (empanada like pastry) in town. All dishes are very inexpensive (you can have a good lunch for under six dollars)
To make things even better FPMT does great work in Mongolia, so you will be having a good meal and contributing to a great cause

Cute little cafe, with a good range of soups, salads etc. The ordering process is confusing - as people kept walking away with their food but I didnt.. turns out you order at the counter and food is bought to your table, but if you order instant food (pasty style things) you seem to get it immediately.

I will go there again today. Good value and all vegetarian and not vegan like some other places nearby. I had french onion soup and potato salad - gorgeous.
