This was a great vegan restaurant. Good prices and delicious food! I had the kimchi jigae stew, a smoothie and the chocolate mud cake for dessert. Amazing! Good atmosphere and great service too.

This place is amazing. It's cheap and has some really high quality food. Especialy before or after a tour through Mongolia I recommend it, because normally you get tons of meat to eat.

Me and my boyfriend went here to check out the vegan food, as we like to try different sorts of food. When I got there the waitress immediately brought me a cup of hot water for my hiccups, it was really kind of her. She also made excellent recommendations for what to eat. We had the Mongolian combo plate, which... More

After eating a lot of meat and heavy meals this restaurant was a relief to digestion. We went as a large group and they were very accommodating. A huge menu to pick from and hard to decide between. Everything was delicious and fresh. Everything reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

Delicious, quaint, cozy, yummy. Somewhat hidden in a building that also houses a meditation center/temple, this place is worth finding. The owner is a well-known entertainer, and the cafe is homey and delightful. First time I've had Barley Tea with Sesame and it is a must-try. Every dish our group had (five of us) was delicious and filling. In our... More

It was so good that we went 2 times in our stay in Ulaan! The food there is well balanced and even for me, a meat lover, everything was delicious. Portions are big and price are fair. Look for the stupa and the buddhist centre on Tourist street.

Went to this place with a group of new friends. First of all, it was difficult to find as a tourist. The taxi dropped us off at the wrong place and then almost everyone we asked didn't know where it was and never heard of it. Eventually we found someone who knew of it. It's located inside a building that... More

I went to Luna Blanca twice during my UB stay. Being vegetarian It was so nice to have a whole menu to choose from. 3 of the 4 dishes we tried were excellent.. esp Flour Power and kimchi stew. The dumpling platter was exellent too.
