Moon Vegetarian Restaurant 2

4 St, Anawrahta Quarter, New Bagan, Bagan, Myanmar

Sister restaurant to the original one in Old Bagan, this one opened Oct 2016. Same menu of a mix of Burmese and some of a general stir fry nature, plus a couple specials such as a banana dud salad. More stylish and hip than the other location. Has an access down a dirt track (200m on sign but felt like more) and probably not very pleasant access if heavy rain and on foot or a scooter or bike. Other sealed road access may be available to the west.

the staff is rude - Edit

The place is pretty, the food is average (and not the cheapest) but one of the staff members was really rude and made my visit unpleasant. He looked angry as soon as we arrived. I was asking about the ingredients of the special menu items as the dishes were not described. I asked about a couple of things and all of them had egg in them so I kept asking just to find a vegan one. He seemed pretty annoyed until he YELLED AT ME in front of everyone, “NO CHICKEN NO MEAT, THIS IS A VEGETARIAN RESTAURANT!!”, are you kidding me? Of course I know, that’s why I went there. I just said: I know, but I don’t eat egg or milk, that’s why I’m asking.
My sister (who never gets angry) said that he was really rude and she asked me if i wanted to leave, but we already drove a lot to find it so we just stayed. I ordered a random dish (a curry) as I didn’t want to talk to the staff again and they gave me the wrong one. Maybe it was on purpose, I don’t know, but it was nothing special.
I noticed that he tried to be nicer after the incident, he probably noticed that I wasn’t happy, thank you for that!

Eat Here Today! - Edit

3rd time eating here within two days in Bagan. Most Beautiful Restaurant Award.

Terrific service. Excellent foods and drinks. Get the coconut shake made vegan. Uniquely good take on guacamole. Excellent coconut curry and chapati wrap.

Eat multiple dishes & get a drink for less than $10.

Pros: Atmosphere, service, food

Cons: None!

Delicious! - Edit

We had some trouble finding the Moon 2! It was down a dusty road behind our hostel but definitely worth the hunt! We ordered so much and only spent 14,000K ($14AU). Tried the noodle special, the tea leaf salad and the chapati wrap! All were delicious. We had also visited the original Moon Restaurant but definitely preferred 2 for the lovely, chilled out, relatively modern setting.

Pros: great venue, very cheap

Cons: does allow smoking

Really special setting and tasty food - Edit

What a beautiful, cosy restaurant- so thoughtfully designed! And set amongst the pagodas down a sandy track- it really seemed magical. The food was tasty - banana bud salad, vegetable tempura and a pineapple coconut curry which was a bit underwhelming to be honest, but everything else was great! Reasonable prices- on the higher side for Myanmar but not for a place like this.

Amazing place - Edit

I really liked the Moon 2 so I was quite surprised to go to the Moon 1 the next day and realize the huge difference between the quality of their services.

The Moon 2 has an amazing ambience and many vegan options on the menu. The staff were attentive and friendly, so much so that we tipped voluntarily.

If you're in Bagan, I definitely recommend that you try the Moon 2.

Great veg/vegan find in nyaungU - Edit

Off the beaten track but well worth going to.
Plenty of vegan options. Tamarind leaf salad well worth trying but just ask about the dishes that locals would eat. Some of the dishes certainly had a bit of chilli bite to them which we like.
Some sizes small-dark sticky rice and vegetable Nan-for price paid.
Ice cream nothing special compared to some Thai
Home made vegan ice creams.
They seem happy to let you share, if not especially hungry, as most place in Burma seem to do.

Happy to miss out peanuts if you don't like or want them but check on oil used too.

Friendly staff although they tend to hover over you as per the other restaurant.

Quieter than other branch as we only heard of it purely by chance, overhearing a conversation in the original restaurant, so if near there then you can ask for directions. A number of small square direction signs seem to be scattered around the local area. Next to a number of small temples and with garden areas (bring some insect repellent)

Will try to upload photos from other phone if possible. Note that I think that I have marked correct position on map.certainly should not be far out.

NB (that was meant to be Banana flower bud salad)

Pros: Reliably Consistent, good food , Only vegetarian and vegan food cooked, Mostly decent portion sizes

Cons: May be hard to find without perseverance
