Respond to Review of CLOSED: Loving Hut - Kennesaw
Review: This post is both a review of Loving Hut, & a rebuttal to the first 2 reviews. First of all, in full disclosure, I am extremely new to vegetarian/vegan eating, so I have little to compare this restaurant to; however, as a tentative newbie, I found the place to be fantastic. I'm sure there are places with more expansive and imaginative menus, but this place offered a variety of good tasting food, decent portions (I'm a big guy & I left satisfied), at great prices. In response to the claims that the menu is too bland and too expensive, I found the food to be very tasteful, & there are only 2 menu items that are over $10 ($10.95 to be exact). That being said, perhaps I am too new to the club to have refined my palette, &/or to know what the price levels should be (but try matching that @ another restaurant). As to the "non-veg friendliness" of the restaurant, all I can say is that you should know better. Believe me, the TV broadcasting would be the least of their concerns. Bringing non-veg family/friends to a vegetarian/vegan restaurant is like them bringing you to a BBQ cook-off or Brazilian steakhouse...it just shouldn't be done. In response to the claim that this is not a vegan restaurant, who knows, perhaps it's not as vegan as vegan can be, though I doubt it. There are 2 possibilities here...(1) a vegan opened a restaurant from a global vegan chain, but did not know what vegan dietary requirements are (which are pretty clear & easy to follow), or (2) a non-vegan masquerading as a vegan opened a restaurant from a global vegan chain to capitalize on a trend &/or niche, & decided to cut corners by buying using non-vegan ingredients, but left the non-vegan ingredients out for their vegan customers to see. Both are possible, but not plausible. Also, as to the claim that the workers were rude, maybe they had a bad day b/c I found them to be extremely pleasant...almost to the point of being weird. Again, I can't speak to the veg purists & the more refined veg palettes out there, but I found it to be a great introduction to veg eating...and that is the reason I wanted to respond to the other reviews. Not to criticize the others, but veg eating is not easy, especially for people like me who love tasty animals, so I want to make sure that good restaurants get all the good publicity they can. I highly recommend it, and will be going back.
