I am a big Loving Hut fan. I like every Loving Hut I've been to. So far I've been to Loving Hut in three states and two additional countries, with plans to add to that tally. Loving Hut in different locations can be quite different. This location is similar to Loving Hut in Milpitas, CA and San Francisco, CA. When this location opened in 2011, I knew and loved those California locations and was ecstatic they were opening a location in the Washington area.
One thing about this location that is unique is that they don't constantly play Supreme Master TV. I am kind of entertained by Supreme Master TV, but I know some people find it irritating.
I don't live particularly close to this location, I have access to other delicious vegan food closer to where I live, and I don't have much reason to be in Falls Church in general, but I make the trip out anyway. It's that delicious! My non-veg husband is also a big fan and gladly drives out with me.
The menu is predominately Vietnamese dishes. They also have a selection of veggieburgers, etc. Typically it's advisable to stick to the specialty of the restaurant, so I avoided the American dishes for a long time. But they're actually also really delicious. Personally, my favorite thing on the menu is the spicy noodle soup, but you really can't go wrong whatever you order.
Also, you MUST get dessert. Get it to go if you are full. They get desserts (donuts, cannoli, etc.) from Vegan Treats in Bethlehem, PA, and those desserts are part of the reason I make the trek from DC to Falls Church. It's objectively probably the best vegan-friendly bakery in the USA. Some of the treats are also form Sticky Fingers bakery in DC, which is also a good bakery (but closer to my house than Loving Hut). You can call and order through Loving Hut a cake from either Vegan Treats or Sticky Fingers to pick up at the restaurant. But maybe do avoid the ice cream, it's the one thing they have that's not great.
