Great vegan "junk food"

I love this place but only go here when I'm in need of something "junky". Now when I say junky to a vegan, or at least to me, that means that there's either lots of soy/tofu, sugars, or grease in their entrees. So yeah it's vegan but really not matter how you look at it fried rice isn't the best... read more

We chose the Loving Hut because of its great food and that all of it is vegan and cruelty free! Love the Loving Hut!! Really liked the little handout Truth or Drought that they gave us. Even more reasons to go vegan! Save a lot of water.

We always go to the Loving hut in Portland and love it but this time we thought we'll try this one since we were close by. But it was a disaster. First we asked of there were any kids meals. No. Would be a kids portion possible? No. Well. So we ordered the pad thai four our toddler and it... More

This was my first time trying the Loving Hut and I was impressed with the environment and ambiance. The food and service was excellent. The price was extremely reasonable. I had the eggplant Tofu and my guest had the Amazing Sauté. We started with Crispy egg rolls and golden wontons. We did not feel that we were lacking meat and... More

I cannot say enough about this treasure of a restaurant we discovered. Everything was so so delicious, fresh and prepared with love. The dishes are all vegan but somehow they make them taste like their meat-dish counterparts. Good enough for me to google the closest one to us on the east coast!

Having come from the UK with one ambition - to get some vegan cake I hadn't had to make myself, was very disappointed to get to the restaurant and it was closed. However, the staff were very kind and let me in to buy some take out cakes - so I had one of everything. Really good textures and flavours... More

The food in this place has never disappointed me. I have tried almost everything on the menu and I love everything! The service is excellent and I will continue to come back for more.

Menu has many choices - Soups, Thai, Chinese, Burgers and more. I saw the restaurant staff was eating the same food. Portions were decent. Pricing tiny bit higher considering its vegetarian but hey its worth it.

There's nothing on the outside of the restaurant to indicate that it's vegan. I am a carnivore, but I have no problem with vegan food. This place was just icky, though. It appeared to be an Asian restaurant, which it is, but the food was awful. We ordered an app and an entrée, and it was not good. Very lacking... More

We like to try and vegan/vegetarian restaurants when we visit different cities and this was a pleasant surprise. We got the spicy jalapeño fries to start which was a good sized plate for us to share and it was very yummy! I got the BLT w/ side salad and my husband had the Western burger. Mine was delicious and I... More
