Respond to Review of Loving Hut - North Park Uptown
Review: Ironically, whereas one of my favourite vegan restaurants ever is a Loving Hut on Spadina in Toronto, this Loving Hut was my only negative experience ever among vegan restaurants. I found several of the dishes quite startling in their absence of appeal, including a broth I found virtually tasteless, won tons and some kind of mystery meat in the won ton soup I found sharply unappealing in taste and texture, french fries I found unusually dry, and a burger I found rubbery in texture and peculiar in taste. The whole-grain brown rice was a nice healthier option, and was moderately palatable, but I gather that management directs staff to limit sauce portions, as the waiter brought me a minuscule amount of plum sauce for the rice, and a minuscule second portion when I asked for it. As well, the operation appeared quite disorganized, as my friends and I had to request missing veganaise approximately six times, and one of the staff came across to me as less than pleasant (another employee was entirely pleasant). My friends did enjoy their burgers, however, so there may be variability in items' appeal, and of course there's the factor of personal preference. In addition, prices are rock bottom, and service is fast. Overall, though, I couldn't recommend this restaurant.
