Dated review

When they had the buffet, I'd say it was the best vegetarian spot in Seoul. Tasty, cheap (for what you got), and so much to choose from. Now I don't know.


Cons: The supreme master propaganda, Location

No longer a buffet

Achasan is no longer a buffet, but for vegans still worth a visit. They have a range of Korean style menu items, and a great small shop area where you can buy dairy-free ice-cream for afterwards.

Just the best

This is the best vegan buffet I've been to up to date. The variety of food is huge and all the different gluten, bean or soya meat (or kongkogi in korean) dishes are just awesome, much better than in Europe. You can enjoy Korean as well as western style vegan meals. Juices, vegan desserts and ice creams available. Price is very good on weekdays, 12.000 won, less than 1€. I will surely miss it when I leave Korea.

Pros: Variety, Shiny and clean, Delicious
Cons: The atmosphere is very functional... , ... but that's not too important

Loving Hut in Achasan was my favourite place in Seoul. Actually, I think it's one of the best restaurants I have been to. Well, OK, it's nothing too fancy, but: you get to try vegan versions of Korean foods, there are about 50 bowls with different kinds of food to choose from: hot and cold dishes, dumplings, noodles, soups, rice, salads, nuts, dried fruit, fresh fruit, canned fruit, cakes, cookies, toast, jams, several kinds of sodas, tea and coffee.. There is plenty of space (although it does get crowded and noisy sometimes) and the atmosphere is generally very laid back.
Considering the amount of food you get the price is OK.

It's a perfect choice if you have time for only one restaurant in Seoul. I'd love to give it six cow-stars. Argh! I want to go there again!

Pros: Very good selection of food, Many kinds of drinks, Laid back atmosphere

Still great, but getting expensive

The Loving Hut in Achasan really is the best vegetarian buffet in Seoul. Like all Loving Huts, it's heavy on the mock meats, but they have a large enough variety of vegetarian food to please anyone. They even had a pretty good vegan fajita when I went.
Unfortunately, the prices have crept up and have put many customers off. Weekdays are 12,000W, but the weekend buffet is now 16,000! The food is excellent, but the atmosphere of the restaurant is still poor. It's worth an occasional meal, but at that price I'd prefer to take my friends somewhere more interesting.

Pros: Large buffet, Tasty food
Cons: Expensive, Tasteless decor

Loving Hut in Achasan is probably the best eat-as-much-as-you-want place I've been in my life. The selection of dishes is huge (ranging from salads, soups, soy meats, etc. to desserts, such as cakes and cookies), and everything tastes very good. The interior of the restaurant is simple, but tidy and clean, price is cheap (9 900 won on weekdays), and staff is smiling and friendly. To put it short: no cons, only pros.
