incredible Asian food - Edit

Ate here after a long day and devoured some of the best Asian food we have ever had. The sticky rice with bbq tofu was mouth watering; the rice noodles and vegetables delicious; also had egg rolls, pot stickers, and edamame... Thai iced tea and smoothie- it was all outstanding and such reasonable prices. Louisville has a great vegan scene!

Pros: Huge menu with a variety of dishes, Carryout and dine in option, Vegan desserts are offered

Great place with lots of vegan options - Edit

This is a great place to eat if you are vegetarian/vegan. I gave it 4 stars not because of any obvious shortcomings, but it just isn't a 5 star like a couple of its competitors in town. They had food to order and also have deli/dessert options to take with you if you were on the go.

Pros: Wonderful selection of food

Cons: Not completely vegetarian/vegan

best tofu - Edit

When I cook tofu at home I get angry. Angry that I can’t get it anywhere near as good as Heart and Soy’s fried tofu. Is my tofu press not good enough? Is it because they make it fresh with a giant machine you can see working? Maybe it is because they have the collective skills and experience cooking the stuff and I don’t? I don’t know and I don’t care. This place is delicious and wonderfully vegan friendly.

Pros: relaxed and not too fancy., Has saved 100s of chickeny lives from my SO., Dang delicious!

Cons: :whines: it’s not a 100% vegan menu

everything - Edit

Everything was wonderful - reasonable prices, kind family owners, interesting dishes you may never see elsewhere. The homemade taro root tapioca pudding was a perfect dessert after the absolutely healing spicy noodle soup.

Love it - Edit

I would give this place 6 stars! Everything is vegetarian, and the cashier told us there were only 3 items on the menu that they couldn't make vegan. Bubble tea is also not vegan. We had pad thai, singapore noodles, fried tofu, and egg rolls, and some delicious baked goods. The egg roll filling was well seasoned and tasty! Definitely will be back to try the rest of the menu.

Pros: house made tofu and soymilk, mostly vegan or can be made vegan, baked goods!

Cons: menu descriptions of some dishes are pretty vague

great desserts - Edit

The food was very enjoyable. Especially liked the Vietnamese sandwich. However, the biggest crowd pleasers were the desserts - carrot cake, ginger whoopie pie and the black forrest cupcake.

YUM! - Edit

The food was fast, fresh, and delicious. I loved the location as well. Friendly staff, very knowledgeable about the ingredients. The egg rolls were SO good and the Singapore noodles were just good! No complaints, I will be back when I'm in town to try the rest of their vast menu.

A new favorite - Edit

Heart and Soy is definitely worth a visit. It is Vietnamese food that you can order quickly, either as some-in or carry-out.

The staff is friendly, and the food is fresh. They even have a tofu machine to make tofu right in the restaurant, and you can buy it in a refrigerated case in the restaurant to take home to enjoy. All items in the case are clearly marked whether or not they are vegan, making delicious vegan eating easy to accomplish.

The desserts are to die for -- totally vegan junk food, but worth every calorie nonetheless.

This has quickly become my new favorite vegetarian/vegan restaurant and will likely soon be yours, too!

Well worth the trip - Edit

We live almost an hour away, but any time we are near Louisville, we make a point of eating at Heart and Soy. The food is fantastic and quickly prepared. We always end up taking home something from their desert fridge because we never have room after the meal.

Pros: Variety, Flavor, Speed

Cons: Little pricey

really wonderful - Edit

My husband and I shared the spicy noodle soup, the fried rice, and some vegan spring rolls. Everything was great and I felt like it was a good value for the price. Everything was fresh and flavorful. The girl at the counter asked if we wanted everything vegan and was very helpful. I couldn't stop exclaiming over how good the soup was. We shared a vegan wunderbar for dessert that was great too. This place made me wish we lived in Louisville. We almost went back for dinner!
Updated from previous review on Wednesday January 02, 2013
We've been back five or six times since I first reviewed it, and it has been delicious every time! We take our meat eating relatives and they love it to! They told us sometimes the go when we're not there because it is so good! The spicy noodle soup is still my favorite. I have to get it every time!

Pros: great food , all vegetarian , great dessert

Cons: probably a long wait if busy

worth the trip - Edit

Traveling on i65 through Kentucky and we ordered up some take-out for the trip. About 3 miles off the expressway and well-worth the stop. Both adults and kiddos loved this place. My bacon eater and protein princess couldn't get enough of the pan fried noodles. Our vegetarian daughter devoured the spring roles and pot stickers. We also tried the veggie burrito and fried tofu which we're awesome.

Pros: fun neighborhood , vegan desserts

All vegetarian with a ton of vegan options. The banh mi is fantastic, my 7 year old begs for the spring rolls here. Counter style service, bus your own table. A great place to stop in for a bite.

Pros: Spring rolls, Very vegan friendly

Cons: not a lot of parking

Great little place! - Edit

I'm vegan so I cook at home almost everyday. In this city it's hard to find vegan or healthy options for that matter. Thank goodness for Heart & Soy! My husband and I love everything that we have had there! This is our favorite place! Their food is so fresh and tasty. They make their tofu right in house, as well as everything else. You cannot get a bad meal at Heart & Soy!

Pros: 90% Vegan, Homemade Tofu, Delish!

Heart and Soul - Edit

The food here tasted amazing.

I do not prefer tofu generally. The tofu (made in house) here is really good, the best I've ever eaten. I had the Korean Rice Bowl (minus the egg) with brown rice (plus) and the flavors were sensational (I'm sure an over easy egg on top would send this over the moon). Warning if you don't like spicy, this one will sneak up on you on the back end -- I loved it.

I also had a cup of their house oolong ginger lemongrass tea. Another flavor sensation.

This will not get 5 Cows because I prefer to see a list of the ingredients in each menu item. The menu was not informative to the contents of each dish making it difficult to decide what to order. Eventually I just asked what the best thing was. As previously mentioned: was not disappointed.

I didn't like that there was no parking. Not being from the area I had to drive around the block a couple times and I parked on a side street about 1/4 mile away.

Pros: Flavor, Nice place

Cons: No parking?, Uninformative menu

Heart and Soy has Heart and Soul! - Edit

This place is a GREAT Asian vegetrarian/vegan restuarant on Bardstown Rd. Louisville. Basically everything is vegetarian and can be made vegan. The Vietnamese noodle salad kicks ass. There is deli case with vegan desserts such as puddings, cakes, cupcakes, breads, and pies. The soft tofu pudding with ginger syrup looks incredible. Wonderful.

Pros: Delicious, Great prices, Variety

Delicious and Fast! - Edit

I absolutely love Heart & Soy! I always check out what they have in the cold chest out front, in case I need to take home a dessert for later. I usually have to get one of their Bubble Teas; my favorite flavor is avocado, and I can't help but save the little beads for last. My favorite dish so far is their Korean Cellophane Noodles with tofu and veggies. It is amazingly delicious, and I reheated the leftovers in the microwave the next day, no problem. I would recommend any vegan or vegetarians to come right in, and any adventurous omnivores as well!

Pros: Delicious, Inexpensive

Cons: Little parking

Great Food! - Edit

This place is amazing and very affordable! I loved the Hot & Spicy Noodle Soup! The fried rice was fantastic, not oily at all. It was full of fresh veggies and did NOT taste fried! Will eat there as often as possible!

Frequent Choice - Edit

100% vegetarian. Love the Pho flat noodle soup, which fills me up. Second love is the Vietnamese sandwich. However, I've seen the portion sizes chosen by the place for the fried rice and lo mein, and if you want a heaping plateful, you'll be disappointed. It is delicious, but it's a "healthy" portion size.

Tapioca starch based pudding and vegan baked goods are one of many dessert options. They are quick, they have free add on condiments on the counter, and I've also enjoyed most of their appetizers.

Check it out, they deserve it.

Pros: Quick, Delicious, Plentiful choices

Cons: small portions

Fast, local tofu! - Edit

Of course, this place rules because it is all-vegetarian, but the food is delicious too. Great tofu sandwiches and quick stir-fries, as well as salads. The best part is they sell their own soy milk, tofu, and even soy pudding. They have a nice "to go" section as well. I definitely recommend Heart & Soy for both the health and ethical benefits of this place.

Pros: vegan friendly, in house made tofu
