“Delicious vegan meals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

The menu is extensive, there are so many options! I actually had 3 meals here while I was in Seoul and they were all fantastic. They have a menu in English which includes photos so you know what to expect, it's all soy and vege. Great for eating alone, as a couple or in a group. The cafe is bright and clean, even though it looks quite small from the street. It also fairly close to the Yonsei University main gate.

“Only the option for vegan, vegetarians and people eating halal food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

Food is vegan oriented, tasty but a little oily as all Korean food. It is still a good option go vegetarian in Seoul. All traditional Korean food restaurants serve food with MSG but no MSG additives at Loving Hut food. Loving Hut is healthy option for travelers in Korea

“If You Are Vegetarian or Vegan in Seoul This is the Place to Go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

This interesting place is an outgrowth of a spiritual movement that attempts to promote non-violence, environmental sustainability, and vegetarianism. It so happens that the food is marvelous. This is an overflowing buffet with a number of soups, noodles, wonderfully prepared vegetables and faux meat that is very well made and very satisfying. It is not big on ambience--noisy, tight spacing for the tables, but this is more than made up for by the quality of the food. If you are vegetarian or vegan in Seoul this is the place to go for lunch! I have been here three times in the last seven years and it has always been excellent.

“Great Vegan food in Seoul!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Being vegetarian here in South Korea and being new to Seoul, I have faced a few challenges when it comes to finding food that I can guarantee as being veggie friendly, so I was overjoyed to eat at the 'Rainbow' store of 'Loving Hut'!!! I have been a long time fan of the Loving Hut chain and it has got me out of a tricky eating situation many a time when I've been travelling as there seems to be a branch or two wherever I go!! I headed to this cafe in the Sinchon area as it was easy to get to for me and I was not disappointed!
Staff were great, very helpful and patient. They were able to speak English so this helped me out! The menu is up on the boards and on the tables, written in both English and Korean and there is plenty of variety to choose from! There are tonnes of traditional Korean dishes on the menu which was awesome as it was a chance to try out food that I have had to avoid so far due to the usual meat factor. There are also smaller snacks available such as vegan hotdogs and veggie burgers~and several yummy flavours of soy ice cream.
The cafe is nice and clean and operates a self service system: so you order at the till, pay and then choose your seat~there are condiments etc on a little side table that you can pick up and then deliver your empty tray to the little shelves when you are finished.
It has a friendly, casual atmosphere and they even have a mini shop by the till point where you can buy vegan friendly products to cook at home. Cheap vegan instant noodles which were a wonderful find and of course I stocked up on these!
Great little find here in Seoul and I look forward to returning! Wonderful staff, lovely place to enjoy a spot of lunch and great to find some delicious vegan Korean food! Great value for money as prices are cheap and the food is super tasty! Highly recommended!!!
