awesome food and wonderful owners!

5 Posted on 04 / 16 / 2014

My family and I love this place. We have been to about 30 Loving Huts across the country and this is one of our fav. The food is good and the owners are wonderful! They really care about introducing people to vegan food. They are always involved in different outlets to get the message out and I dig that about them. Sometimes doing shows and not making any money but spreading the word that vegan food is not only delicious but a necessity for the animals.

We just spent a week in Worcester and are there everyday. We tried their Pho soup, Kung Pow Wow, vermicelli veggie plate, lemon grass soy plate, Wong ton soup, stir fries veggies, and more and All of it was very good. Plus the food comes out fast.
We also tried their puddings, carrot cake and chocolate cakes. My fav was the corn pudding.

Thank you south got feeding us so well while in town!

LOVED it

5 Posted on 03 / 01 / 2012

My boyfriend (who eats meat) and I went(a vegan) here a few months ago and it was FABULOUS! We originally After serious contemplation I got veggie lo mein and orange chicken. It was impeccable. The orange chicken actually tasted better as left overs for some reason. Any ways, it is quite tried some at VegFest in Boston and loved it so much we decided to dine at the restaurant. It was possibly the best chinese food I have ever had, especially since becoming vegan. My boyfriend got fried rice, broccoli, and tempeh. He said the rice was so good he is put off from rice anywhere else. I have been meaning to make it back there soon because boy do I crave it! Can't wait to go back and try something else! (and take the orange chicken home for left overs =]).

Pros: Awesome food, Well-Priced, Cute Atmosphere
Cons: I don't think they serve alcohol

Not feeling the love

3 Posted on 04 / 28 / 2011

I have visited Loving Hut several times as well as eating their fare at the various vegfests. They rely heavily on faux meat dishes and this is fine for some but it gets old. There seems to be a decline in the quality recently and my dish was all but unedible. Disappointing.

Pros: price, portions, all vegan
Cons: quality, menu versatility

All about the price

2 Posted on 01 / 09 / 2011

Had dinner here on a weekday. They have a big but boring menu, ALL fake meat, not that healthy after all. The rice that came with the entrees was so little that you could literally finish in three spoonfuls. But then it was very cheap, taste was OK too. I would just avoid the eggplant dishes because ours was so oily that I had to steep them in water first.

Pros: cheap
Cons: tiny rice portion, all fake meat

vegan oasis in Worcester

We enjoyed dinner today at Loving Hut--delicious appetizers, soup, and entrees, great service, plus an enjoyable chat with the very friendly owner. The menu includes lovely color photos that are representative of the dishes served. Will definitely return during stay and whenever we are in the area.

Pros: very good food, friendly staff, cozy, clean cafe

a favorite!

We have been going to the Loving Hut (formerly Buddha Hut) since it opened. The restaurant is clean, bright and the service is extremely friendly. Everything we have tried so far has been very tasty. The menu is extensive and they now have a new menu with photos of the food, which is helpful! The food quality is consistent and we keep going back for more.... in the vegan wasteland of Worcester, this is the perfect oasis :-)

Pros: large menu, good value, friendly staff

Very happy to find this place in Worcester. The food is great and so is the service. I have tried a chicken dish and a beef dish, both chinese. they also have veggie burgers, dogs, and meatballs on the menue. The atmosphere is clean and cozy. The place is large for a veggie establishment which is nice. The lunch specials are very reasonable.

Excellent food, nice staff, cute interior

For over 10 years now, I've eaten at Quan Yin whenever I was in Worcester and was craving some tasty mock-meat dishes. We recently ate at Budda Hut, the sister restaurant of Quan Yin, and were pleasantly surprised. Buddha Hut is more spacious than Quan Yin, and it's very quaintly decorated. Each table had a fresh flower vase! To start off our meal, my husband and I shared the appetizer sampler and a cup of the Italian meatball soup. The mock-meat appetizers were really flavorful. The Italian meatball soup was delicious, too, although it tasted more like a regular veggie soup than the "Italian wedding soup" that I had imagined. For our entrees, I ordered the "salmon" w/Chinese broccoli special from the specials board, and my husband ordered a "chicken" with broccoli dish. Both were very delicious and satisfying. We had hoped to try a slice of their vegan cake, but they were sold out at the time. We had a great experience at Buddha Hut and are looking forward to going back again the next time we are craving mock-meats. Also, just like at Quan Yin, you get to watch propaganda videos of the Supreme Master Ching Hai while you eat!

Pros: delicious food, friendly waitstaff, cute interior

Incredible!

I love this place. The food is always perfect, no matter what I get. Always, always just what I am craving. The people who run this place are so lovely and sweet and it has quite a pleasant atmosphere. I love coming here and chowing down with friends. I have tried many of the regular menu items but, silly me, I have yet to try one of the specials, even though they always sound so mouth-wateringly delicious. One of these days...

Pros: delicious food!, friendly service, inexpensive

StART at the Park

5 Posted on 06 / 10 / 2008

The owners set up a booth at the StART in the Park and the food was wonderful. I agree with the other reviewer, the drumstick were great. I plan to eat there soon and will do a better review.

Pros: friendly, delicious food

A Wonderful Restaurant!

5 Posted on 06 / 03 / 2008

After being a long-time customer of the Quan Yin, I was very excited when I found out that the owners were opening a second restaurant, Buddah Hut.

I've been there a few times, and I love it! The food is amazing and all completely vegan! The staff is friendly, and the atmosphere is very relaxed.

Even most of the omnivores I know who have eaten there tell me that the food is excellent!

I personally am a huge fan of their drumsticks, as well as their 'seafood' dishes. Their smoothies are pretty impressive as well. Everything is very yummy. ^^

Pros: Great Food, Inexpensive, Great Service

quality food, reasonably priced, friendly service

5 Posted on 05 / 16 / 2008

Great new place. Clean, nice environs. Very friendly staff. Only tried a few menu items & am satisfied. Yes, plenty of faux-meat, but also stuff for those of us who avoid that & go straight for the tofu & veggies. Excellent miso veg seaweed soup, steamed spring rolls & dumplings. I visit often.

Pros: food quality, service, price
