Delicious food

Really nice food, huge menu with a lot of traditional Mongolian dishes. No English was spoken when I was there and the menu is in Mongolian, but we worked it out and it was delicious. I'll be back

good food, the rest could be better

first: the food was delicious, the place was easy to find and the price is unbeliebably cheap. though unfortunately a lot of drinks were not available (the milk shakes, some teas) and we didnt feel like the staff really cared about their costumers.
then again i dont want to push this place down too much, because like i said the food was really delicious and a pure vegan restaurant in mongolia is not easy to find either.

Pros: many options, cheap, totally vegan

Cons: not too cosy atmosphere

Nice hearty Mongolian style food

I think this restaurant must have two branches, because I went to a different location (the one given when you search Google maps). I ordered a yummy soup and fried dumplings. Perfect for a cold, rainy day. The food was hearty and filling, but just a touch bland for my tastes.

Pros: Hearty, filling food, A chance to sample Mongolian fare

great apple pie

I went there in the afternoon to have a sweet snack. I had the apple pie and a green tea. The apple pie was really tasty.
Also bought some oat cookies and frozen spinach dumplings to prepare at the hostel later in the eve. Everything was delicious.
They also sell Agnista food at the State Department Store (cookies and frozen dumplings).

Pros: tasty sweets, fair prices, big variety of soups and salads

Cons: not a great atmosphere

Bonne bouffe, bon prix

Je peux confirmer que cet endroit est toujours ouvert puisque j’y ai mangé trois fois pendant mon séjour à Oulan-Bator (les 7, 22 et 24 juillet).
Les plats que j’ai goûtés étaient très bons, il y a beaucoup de choix et les prix sont abordables.

Can confirme that this place is still open as I got lunch there 3 times during my stay in UB (July 7, 22 and 24th).
Good meals, plenty of choice and low prices.

Tried to go here two times, but it was closed. I think it opens at 11, not 9. When we got here it was ok but not much more.

Hi, sorry you found it closed first. I checked and you were right about the hours so I've updated them now.

Admittedly arrived at 7pm, but here it is nearly 8pm on a Friday and people keep drifting in to pick up carry out. So 7:30 is not their closing time. Stood 2’ away from the owners for 10min trying to ask if they were open. They finally handed me an English menu. They were out of everything I asked for except the green salad. Ended up with dumplings and an adzuki bean boba drink. Portion sizes are great. Dumpling quality first rate. But to be out of everything on the menu even bottles of water? There are three women at another table whose plates haven’t been cleared in the 50 min I’ve been here, and no one has brought their bill. Apparently, calling ahead for take out is the way to go here. Ask a kindly Mongolian speaker (most of them are. Kind.) to call in the order for you.

Pros: Dumplings are tasty, Easy to find, thanks to the Happy Cow posters

Cons: No service to speak of, They’re out of everything but frozen dumplings , BYO what ever you want to drink

Dumpling heaven!

I didn't struggle to find the place, it has a big sign on its entrance.
The portions are typically Mongolia and really big, I had the dumplings which were extremely tasty.
Also bought some handmade vegan sausage and baked goods and have no complaints.

Great :)

It was really hard to find as the adress is not really right (same street but a bit more South than the actual adress) but so worth it ! The portions are huge and really nutritious and it was quite tasty. I had the dumplings soup and the tofu/seaweed plate which was around 3€! I recommend totally, just open your eyes and walk a little on the street, the sign is quite big !

modest little restaurant in the centre

It took me a while to find it, it was probably moved from another location. Now it's on Baga Toiruu, about 100m south from another veggie place - Lotus.
The place is nice, variety of foods - salads, soups, desserts... good prices

Pros: fair prices , English menu , good selection

Cons: hard to find

I think it's closed!!

Went all over tarnation looking for it. A shopkeeper next to where it should have been helped us and I'm pretty sure was saying it closed and now the ramen place that's there moved in. Either that's true or it's in totally different neighborhood.

Simple and cheap vegan food

An all vegan diner. Simple food and looks a bit cheap but you get a really big meal for a very very fair price. Loved our big plates filled with veggies and the apple pie dessert we could take home!

Pros: Big meals, Cheap

Cons: Not incredibly cosy

One another vegan restaurant in Ulan-Bator which is worth it to taste. Soup as their vegan Khushuur are fantastic. Time didn't let me eat a second time there.
They sell snack vegan food too

Pros: good value
