Excellent vegan food but with a not so friendly staff

The place serves high quality vegetarian/vegan food. I'm not a vegetarian but once I tried this place, I was hooked! I was in Samara for 3+ weeks and after discovering this place, I ate there almost daily and in some cases, twice a day. I know a bit excessive but it just offered something more than... read more

After reading all those good reviews here on TA, my girlfriend (vegetarian) and I (not vegetarian) decided to go to LuvBurger on our first evening in Samara. And well, we have to say we'd better chose another place. I can't understand all those 5-star reviews. Just because it's a vegan restaurant doesn't mean the food is automaticaly good. Don't get...

The food at Luv Burger is the yummy and healthy. Love burger offers a wide variety of yummy freshly made food for vegetarians like me. However, the food is so delicious, that even my non vegetarian husband chooses to eat there as well.

My husband and shared a burger and sweet potato fries with an order of humus and veggies, and I have to say it was really good. Prices are on par with most things in Samara, which is on the expensive side, but we felt in this case good food for a good price.

We stopped here for lunch on our first day in Samara. I loved it! The concept is awesome, food was delicious and the menu was very selective for a vegetarian restaurant. I would also consider opening one of these elsewhere as they are also trying to franchise.

As a gluten-free & vegan gal, it can be difficult backpacking around and trying to feed yourself good food. I was in Samara for 3 days last month and I ate at Luv Burger 3 times (a little excessive maybe.) Everything I ate off the menu was amazing, I am day dreaming about the burgers as I write this review.... More

The food is great and reasonably priced! The wait staff also seems to be the kitchen staff so if you are looking for a quick bite, this may not be the place. The vegan casado is good but for me the cashew cheese was a little overbearing. Not a deal breaker though as we ate there 3 times in a... More

Tasty, healthy and affordable. Muy bien! Visited with my family (wife and ten year old) while on vacation in Samara. We all had burgers and ordered a hummus sampler. Enjoyed sitting in the cool, private courtyard. Everything was great!

I tried the onion melt luv burger and was pleasantly surprised by how good it tasted. It really was an excellent alternative to a real hamburger (and I am a hamburger guy). My wife and daughter wanted to try the restaurant, so since I was outvoted I tried it with them. I was happily surprised by how good the onion... More

Luv Burger was a delicious gem in Samara. The veggie burger was delicious and was served on an amazing, fresh baked bun unlike anything I've had before. The coconut bacon is a must try! It was so good I stopped in to Luv Organics to buy some before heading home. A satisfying meal that was a great value, even for... More
