Description: Map directions are on our website lunablanca.org. Founded in the spring of 2008 by Mongolia's first teen- pop idol Nomi Cater (a.k.a Nominjin) and run by women dedicated to promoting healthy and compassionate living. Serving a savory menu of Asian, Western and Mongolian cuisine, all foods are 100% Vegan (no animal products of any kind are used). Many of our ingredients are home made including items such as vegan mayonnaise, hot sauces, vegan mock meats, several types of dumplings and so on. From the onset, the restaurant has been run in a manner that is not profit seeking, choosing instead to pay relatively good salaries, engaging in community outreach and philanthropy, while keeping prices as low as possible and serving high quality ingredients. Luna Blanca Restaurant is smoke and alcohol free. We are child friendly with high seats and a special children’s menu. Special orders, catering, take-out are available. We have ample experience in catering and in hosting large events.

After stumbling across this restaurant due to it's high number of stars on here and seeing that it was 3 mins from the hostel, it was a delight to visit. We are veggie and have been on the trans-mongolian for 2 weeks with a lot of mashed potato and pot noodles :) This is not the only reason that the food at Luna Blanca is good though! It's tasty, generous portions and cheap. The most expensive plate is the love heart dumpling plate at $5. We shared 2 plates, had a few fruit juices, a couple of bottles of water, spent $15 and felt very happy! There are a few options for each course and we plan on trying as many of them as possible.

Excellent place to get some fresh vegetarian food in carnivore heavy Mongolia. I am anything but a vegetarian, but thoroughly enjoy this place. I have been here more than a dozen times over the last 2 years or so, and have enjoyed every meal I have ordered. Portions are perfect, food is tasty, the place is clean, server are friendly, and they have bi-lingual menus / servers (for the most part). It may not be the best vegetarian place you have been compared to other parts of the world, but it is fresh and for here it works. It is just one block east of Sukhbaatar Square .

Great place to be there if you looking for fresh and tasty vegan/vegetarian food. I have tried every thing on their menu, never left anything on the plate. I like the people working there who are very kind and serving you in minutes. Thank you Luna!

The restaurant was clean, friendly, easy to find, spoke english, but as far as #1 ranked and vegetarian, it was really nothing special. The vegetarian mongolian dumplings were tough and the tofu szechwan was bland.
