cheap vegan Take-away

4
Posted on 10 / 02 / 2014

Grab a tasty filling take-away boxful of vegan chinese for £4. Think you could eat as much as you like there for about £6 but no seats, you stand at a bar to eat.
Not sure if the wider range of loving hut burgers and so on is available here, but the take-out box from the buffet made a good lunch.

Pros: All Vegan, Cheap
Cons: No Seating

I visited this loving hut last year and was very impressed. Unlike other restaurant/ cafe format loving huts this one is more of a canteen with a long serving counter down one side and a table in the middle with no seats. It's ideal for a quick and tasty lunch. The staff there are so lovely and welcoming and make you feel comfortable. The food is fantastic and the location is also great right near the centre. The food is cheap too!

Pros: Friendly staff, Delicious food, Great location
Cons: No seats

Crazy good food!!

Completely vegan despite the very convincing vegan meats that have you wondering if they're telling the truth! It's the only place I've managed to find that is completely vegan and mind-blowingly delicious! The staff are very friendly and if you have any worries about the food don't hesitate to ask! After reading so many reviews stating how wonderful and realistic their vegan meats were I was a bit worried and so had to quiz them out of curiosity. They were very cool about it and informed me that all of the meats they served was made from soy and marinated to taste like the real thing! Sadly there is no indoor seating but that is what keeps the place so well priced. Would definitely return for the Chinese buffet but have yet to try the vegan fish, burgers and other meals they claim to offer!

Pros: Amazing food (variety & quality), Good pricing (cheap), Prime location (train station near by and outdoor
Cons: No indoor seating

Some of the best vegan food I've eaten.

Lovely Asian buffet. Very cheap and easy too. If you want good tasty food for very little money, this is the place to go.
Have been meat eater previously, and used to eat here prior to turning vegan, and still the best chinese/Asian food I have eaten.
Will make you forgot all about meat. Best place!

Yummy chinese-style vegan takeaway with tasty food and friendly staff. The dishes are not labelled, but the very frienly woman working there was keen to tell us what everything was (and warn us if things were very spicy).
Good value for money (£4 for medium size box of takeaway which was plenty).
The odd religious undertone is a bit off-putting with Supreme-Master TV playing in the background, but no-one tries to convert you.
We took our food and sat in the castle grounds (opposite Loving Hut) as the restaurant only has one table with no chairs and it was a nice sunny day.

Pros: Good value, tasty, good vaiety, , friendly staff, vegan
Cons: Nowhere to sit, religious undertone

Wonderful staff, lovely takeaway

Although this is one of the smaller Loving Hut locations without indoor seating, the fare is outstanding. Very popular with the locals, the friendly staff are always cooking up fresh hot 100% vegan food for the mini-buffet and it's excellent value. In addition they offer frozen and refrigerated foods (including Cheezly and Vegusto) and the best vegan cheeseburger anywhere (with complimentary mushrooms, fried onions, and unlimited chips!). When I tried to leave a tip they gave me a vegan candy bar; they're so nice. :) If you're anywhere in the area this is a must-visit.

Pros: value buffet, friendly chefs

This place is great. Every single dish is so tasty and they have loads of options to buy from the freezer from vegan cod fillets, to mutton pieces.

For £4 you get a massive takeaway box of great food and you'll never meet a happier more helpful owner.

Pros: Great food, Friendly staff

Love the Hut

Posted on 10 / 25 / 2011

For hard-core vegans, The Loving Hut may be an entirely new experience. We've never eaten in Chinese restaurants and most take away places are off the menu too. So the deep-fried emphasis is new to us. On our first visit we weren't sure, but I've been back a few times now and feel I've got tuned in. The food is fresh and tasty and deep fried and very good value. Still not sure about TVP meaty things, so I avoid the obvious alternative meat substitutes. I'm told The Hut is perfect if you're nursing a hang-over food, which I can believe. The staff are friendly and helpful and it's great to have The Hut on the list of options for lunch in Norwich. Also, I saw Benjamin Zephaniah in there. What more can I say?

Pros: Fresh, Cheap, Very different vegan fare
Cons: Lots of fried stuff, Lots of TVP meat, Nowhere to sit inside

Amazing

This place is so good - the food is really nice and really cheap. A large takeaway tray is £3.50. I think you can refill this for an extra couple of quid.
It is open on saturdays now too!
Only problem is no seats, which is fine in summer when you can go to castle gardens across the road, but not good when its raining! But its a small place and there's not much they can do about that. Really nice people. I hope they'll do well out of this cos they deserve it!

Pros: Lush food, Cheap, Friendly
Cons: Shuts at 5pm, Nowhere to sit

Loving loving hut!

Posted on 07 / 05 / 2010

I just visited this place for the first time in June 2010 and thought it was wonderful. Staff were so helpful and friendly. Everything is vegan, pasta, rice, curries and sweets. There are similar places to this in London and we are lucky to have on here. Do please support it! It is excellent value for money and you can choose just exactly what and how much you want. They also have a good selection of frozen foods. The only down sides can be parking for a takeway (there is a multi storey opposite though) and I wish they had somewhere more comfortable for you to sit and eat as it's really a take out. I hope you love it as much as i do!

Pros: Best choice of this type of food locally, Value, Just fabulous
Cons: Parking outside, Better seating

A Hidden Treasure!

Posted on 05 / 27 / 2010

Fantastic little place that's 100% vegan with an incredible variety of frozen food I've never found anywhere else - vegan cod, vegan eel, vegan goose to name a few! Lunch buffet is delicious, really tasty and colourful chinese sweet and sour, thai curries, noodle dishes, salads (as well as a few things like chips and hot dogs) and mini cupcakes. Super cheap prices. They even have vegan prawn crackers - amazing! Run by really nice people too, the lady is a talented chef - she even makes deliciously fluffy savoury dumplings. definitely check it out if you are in Norwich!

Pros: Large portions, lovely family staff, divine food
Cons: not open evenings or weekends

Brilliant

Posted on 12 / 02 / 2009

A tiny place, in a poor location, but run by a brilliant woman that provides an excellent, if small, lunchtime buffet. There is usually three choices of sauce, to go with noodles or nice, and various extras. Price is around 3 or 4GBP. It's very cheap and very nice.

Pros: Cheap, Charming
Cons: Location, Few Dishes
