Pre Concert Meal. 6 friends gathered in a comfortable warm environment. Waiting staff spoke good English and were very attentive. Everything ordered was available and delivered in good time. Great experience.

Very good food including food for vegetarians and vegans, hard to get in Mongolia. I had gnocchi specially prepared without dairy and my friends enjoyed their pizza.

First visite to Ulaanbaatar, so I started exploring the surrounding of the Shangri-La Hotel, La veranda is just a couple of minutes walking from the hotel, and I would say it's a hidden gem, the place is just amazing: quiet, pleasant, menu is really good...(you'll come to know that choice is very limited in Mongolia when it comes to vegies ). Service was a bit slow (but this is maybe me actually used to super fast service in places like Dubai ), but the food was so fresh and so tasty. I had a nice lunch on an extraordinary sunny day in UB.More

This restaurant used to be one of the best places to get pasta. Now, Ulaanbaatar has many other restaurants that make as good or better pasta. The environment is nice and romantic. Visit my Tik Tok page at mongoliafoodie for my recommendations on places to...eat at in Ulaanbaatar.More

If you have looked at any of my other reviews you will find that I was not impressed with Zoma,which is also a Mediterranean restaurant. Veranda is one of my local friends' favorite restaurants. If you have trouble deciding on a dish because everything looks...good, then you know you are in a good restaurant! They offer antipastos, all kinds of pastas, risotto, steaks, pretty much all good choices. I actually ordered a pizza, they offer thin or thick crusts, they have a meat lovers pizza but also a couple vegetarian options like Margarita. I order a side dish of fried mushrooms. You never know what you are going to get here, it could have been deep-fried, or just a dish of sliced sauteed mushrooms. It actually came out like a salad! It was fried mushrooms with greens and cherry tomatoes, warm, nicely seasoned and served in a bowl. The waiter was very good and didn't hover but was there to take away dishes at the right time. Here in Mongolia many restaurants take a really long time to bring you your food, not at Veranda! Really nice atmosphere, nice furnishings, very elegant dining room, very clean bathroom. I really enjoyed my lunch and highly recommend Veranda.More

It has been well over two years since my last review of the Veranda so I decided to return and check it out. My last visit was during the warm weather months so I sat outside. Now we are in late November and sitting outside...is not an option. In case you are not aware of this, the Veranda sits 'in the shadow' of The Blue Sky Hotel and Tower.It is also 'just up the street' from Millie's another excellent restaurant and across from the Choijin Lama Museum another outstanding Trip Advisor attraction. The physical layout has not changed. IF you have trouble with stairs you can eat downstairs in the bar area, but this lacks the ambiance of the formal dining area up the stairs. Mid Sunday afternoon a friend and I had a very private table and the room it was located in 'all to ourselves'. Nice. Our server very professional. Lamb Kebabs delicious. Loved the minced-black-olives in oil that came with the rolls. Bring money with you. The Veranda is on the 'pricey' side costwise BUT you get what you pay for. The Veranda is top drawer in all respects. I love the questions below. Is the Veranda family friendly? I myself would not consider bringing children to eat here due to the cost of entrees and the formality of the restaurant. So I clicked Not Sure.More

After a 4 day tour in a Russian van, the veranda was much needed. Beautiful fresh salads and food was modern and delicious. Reasonably priced. Great feel to the restaurant

We ate our first dinner in UB here. Having walked around the temple below, we were happy to sit where we could look over it and have a very good dinner to follow up. Tender lamb ribs and a pasta dish that while not up...to Italian standards wasn't too bad when compared similar dishes I've had elsewhere in Asia. Service was very good.More

We were impressed with the decor and welcome when we arrived. The restaurant was fairly full, but on a Saturday evening, it didn't appear necessary to pre book. The menu is quite varied, with some Italian dishes and some that seemed verging more towards local,...although as with all restaurants we have tried in UB, not so much in the way of seafood. It is heavily weighted in favour of meat dishes, though there are some veggie options. In any case we would imagine most seafood dishes would not be using very fresh ingredients unless river fish, so we tend to avoid. The roast duck dish was tasty and side of roast potatoes with rosemary good. The thin crust pizza was ok - tasty topping, but I wasn't overly impressed with the crust - maybe try thick crust next time. And there will definitely be a next time, because we enjoyed our meal and the experience. Choice of wine is better than other restaurants we have tried. They are happy to pack up anything left for you to take home. Thanks to the staff member who kindly called us a taxi - it was ready and waiting outside - very convenient.More
