Respond to Review of CLOSED: Loving Hut
Review: My family went to the Loving Hut for dinner in Guangzhou because we have enjoyed dining with this restaurant in a number of U.S. cities. The Loving Hut is located on the 5th Floor of a higher end retail complex about a block from the U.S. Consulate in the fashionable Tianhe Business District. As we do not speak either Manadarin or Cantonese, we were fortunate that our server spoke very good english. The menu is extensive but is listed by photos and chinese descriptions only. You can either choose by what looks good to you or you can ask them for a translation if you don't read chinese. On this ocassion, we selected a pureed green vegetable soup (think chinese spinach), sauteed greens with straw mushroom, pumpkin with pineapple and taro hot pot in coconut sauce, and seafood (mock) fried rice. We were traveling with our 3 year old daughter and we were pleasantly surprised that she ate a little of everything. The dishes were all nicely prepared and delicious. The service was friendly and prompt. The dining room is spacious and tending to a more upscale feel. For a truly satisfying and nutritious meal, we paid only $110 RMB or about $17 US Dollars. We tried to leave a gratuity but they tracked us down in the lobby and said that they have a policy of no tipping. Diners of this chain will know that the restaurant has a goal of educating of their patrons about the benefits of eating a plant based diet. I highly recommend the Loving Hut in Guangzhou for an amazing vegan dining experience. They will accept reservations.
