Moon Vegetarian Restaurant

Overall rating: 4.5 stars 8 Reviews
Also known as Be Kind To Animals, this little open-air veggie cafe is located on a dirt road north of the Ananda Temple, just off the old main road. You'll see a sign on the main road directing you. Offers a variety of choices. One seasonal specialty is the papadum with guacamole. Not to be missed, with a nice large Myanmar beer. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Price: Moderate more-less

I was in Bagan for almost a week for work so I ate here many times. Wonderful experiences every time!
I dabbled in some other nearby restaurants but ran into 2 issues - either they were a bit dull, or it was impossible to ascertain what was a vegetarian dish (or could be done in veg mode).
At the Moon, of course the food and drinks were excellent, but the best part was the friendly staff and owner (Ms Zimmar) who ended up my almost-dinner partners each evening as they came over to chat. Chilled and happy people.
I noticed on here a review mentioning the restaurant is popular with tour groups. There is the occasional group who stop off for meal breaks, but perhaps this is a sign of the success of the restaurant?

Very varied menu with cuisines of all the world. Friendly atmosphere, excellent service, high quality products. This restaurant does not use palm oil, it is very good. It is a pity, but restaurant on opposite stole this idea and menu. I hope in the Moon everything will be good. I can recommend this place to everyone!

Pros: vegan menu, friendly staff, excellent food

We tried to eat here but they didn't have the dishes we ordered so we left after an expensive drink. It was empty when we arrived but by the time we'd finished our drink it was packed full of tour groups so we're glad we left!

Pros: Menu looked good
Cons: Didn't have all the dishes available, Full of tour groups

AKA Be Kind to Animals

Posted on 09 / 25 / 2012

Info blurb says 'steps away from Ananda Temple' just so you know it's more like 100 m around the street corner, set back from the main road amid a cluster of other restaurants. Food is very good, well prepared. Decor is nice despite that this is actually in a shack. Subtitle of restaurant is "Be Kind to Animals". Started raining after we finished eating so we got stuck there for a while as we were in bikes. Staff was gracious, allowed us to wait at a large table despite that it was busy and even served us complimentary tea, tamarind, and palm sugar candies. Guacamole is good. Salads are lovely.

Pros: ethical vegetarians
Cons: mosquitoes

We ate there twice - lunch one day - veggie spring rolls and a chapatti wrap. It was so good we went back the next day for dinner, when we had coconut veggie & tofu curry, pumpkin & lemongrass tofu and fried banana for dessert. Including beer, the total cost was only K8,000 - about US$9.00. A very delicious bargain. The staff was super friendly, too, and happy to pose for photos with us.

Pros: delicious, friendly staff, great value

Excellent food is served in this vegetarian restaurant with a very good choice and vegan meals available.
We had lunch or dinner every day at the Moon during our stay in Bagan! Especially we loved the tomoato curry and the lady fingers! Try the tamarid juce as well! :-)

Lunch and dinner

We were lucky to stumble on this restaurant and had lunch at first. By the way: it sounds like it is a cafe, but we are most certain you can have a decent meal as well, just as we did.
Food was prompt, nicely proporsioned en cheap! Staff was helpfull, even though English is not their forte.
We decided to have dinner there another day, as we noticed another vegetarian restaurant across the dirt road.

Pros: price, taste, location
Cons: Language barrier

We loved to food here. The place is very clean and professional. We recommend getting the tea leaf salad. Also everything is prepared fresh so it take about 20-30 mins to get your food fyi.
