First Review by Chalice777

Environment clean, variety of dish options, tasty all-vegan food and staff were nice enough. Meals pricey given small portions and many items from menu not available. - Edit

Clean establishment, waiting staff friendly and there is an extensive menu with many options including Malaysian, Chinese and Western cuisine. Two train trips and half an hour walk from the station (travelling from central KL) would have been more worth it if not a lot of their menu was out of stock (bakery goods and ice cream to name some). The staff said this was due to waiting for a stock delivery given it was recently the Chinese New Year (though I visited 22/02/18). I give it a 3.5 star review as portion sizes small despite the price and many items on the menu not available.

Pros: Exclusively vegan restaurant, many options and var

Cons: No Wi-Fi, many items listened on the menu out if s

One of the Best Vegan Restaurants In Kuala Lumpur - Edit

Great food, selection - Japanese, Western, Chinese - we tried dishes from each cuisine and found them quite good. Location is a bit to the south of KLCC but well worth the visit, especially on the way back down or up from the Airport.

A must visit in KL - the options in the center town just don’t have the same modern vegan restaurant appeal.

Pros: selection , vegan, ambience

Great vegan food! - Edit

I found this fully vegan place via the happy cow app over a year ago now, and the reviews don't lie, it was (and still is) one of the best vegan spots in KL! My partner is not vegan but LOVES this place as it offers a really good range of food (a mixture of Asian and Western). On our first visit, we tried the Vietnamese rolls, Japanese korokke, pumpkin rolls, pineapple rice, and gyoza. We loved it all. We've been back many times and tried both of the burgers, wraps and several noodle dishes - we've never been disappointed. If I had to choose, I’d say the ‘butter mushrooms’ are probably my favourite.

The desserts include cakes, homemade pies and cheesecakes (all vegan!). The hot apple pie with a scoop of their homemade vegan vanilla ice cream is glorious! We often take some cake/cheesecake home to enjoy later (as we're so full from all the savoury food - seriously though, order the butter mushrooms, Vietnamese rolls and gyoza - you will not regret it).

The owners of Loving Cafe are lovely and always very friendly. They have a vegan dog - check out the photo next to the cash register! I also like the fact that they promote waste reduction, and takeaways are always wrapped in recyclable materials (they also welcome you taking your own containers for takeaway).

Big thumbs up.

Pros: top quality vegan food, lovely friendly vegan owners, great range of savoury food and desserts

Cons: cash only (take lots of cash!)

Comfortable place - Edit

The food tatse is normal. My personal opinion, the food a little bit lack of the tatse, too plain. The asam laksa i tried is not spicy and sour, a little bit out of expect. The black pepper steak is awful, i never expect the steack is soft as tofu. The rojak, oh my god. It smell like s***, although tasty lol.

Pros: variety, comfortable

Cons: food tatse not suit malaysia

Super lecker Essen - Edit

Ein stylisches Restaurant mit richtig leckerem Essen. Das Sushi ist fantastisch und mit eins der besten, die wir je hatten. Laksa und eine Mushroom-Pilzsuppe waren auch super lecker. Christopher war von dem Walnut Brownie ganz angetan und ich hab mich ins Matchaeis mit roten Bohnen verliebt. Der etwas weitere Weg von Kuala Lumpur lohnt sich definitiv. Bin super froh, dass wir extra noch hingefahren sind an unserem letzten Abend.

Pros: organic, viele Desserts, local food und asiatisch

INCREDIBLE service, 5 stars - Edit

I went to Loving Cafe, had a great meal there (try the gyozas!) and when I was going to pay I realized no cards were accepted... having no money, I had to go to the nearest ATM that was 2 kms away. My flight was departing that same night so I didn't have much time! To start with, the owner offered me not to pay for the meal(!) which is already something that rarely happens these days. Then, he called me a taxi and explained him where I had to go. He waited, and after I came back he still called me another taxi to get back to the hotel. All of this thanking me! Im the one who had to thank him, not only for his great help but also for the trust!
Thank you!

Pros: Service

Delicious and very innovative Vegan food! - Edit

Love the 'Ika Mayo' which is exactly like fried squid in breadcrumbs. Butter fried mushrooms, spicy mushroom ramen and so many others! My third visit. The ice creams are to die for as are the beautiful cakes and pastries.

Pros: Yum! everything delicious!

Cons: What to choose lah? All so nice!

Nice atmosphere, good food - Edit

It's nice when travelling to come across a destination that is entirely vegan and Loving Cafe makes it obvious from the very beginning that none of their products contain anything from animals. The menu is quite expansive and there are a lot of different styles of food from different pockets of the world.

The mushroom burger seemed like great value for money, but the nicest thing was a drink that looked like bubble tea with black worms inside of it. Can't remember the name, but a great flavor and a nice little touch of lengthy jelly-type things inside made it real fun to drink. I also got a milkshake which was sizeable. I cannot stand ordering a milkshake and getting a tiny thing in exchange.

Pros: Great selection and range, Comfortable environment, 100% vegan means peace of mind

Cons: Sushi felt too expensive for what's offered, Confusing button entry/exit system

Amazing - Edit

Amazing vegan food, kind and understanding owners, and nice atmosphere, all here in good ol' KL, Malaysia!

This 100% vegan restaurant was packed, so bookings are essential.

The assam laksa is probably the best that I've ever had. Definitely try it! And the ice cream on brownie was heavenly.

Pros: Delicious food, awesome variety, Everything is 100% vegan, Helpful and friendly owners

Cons: None off the top of my head

Amazing food - Edit

I love this place. We went on a Sunday night and it was packed. The menu was impressive and it took me a while to decide what to have. The food was so tasty. It had so much flavour and tasted so fresh. The staff were great. Very friendly and helpful. Overall I would thoroughly recommend this place. It's definitely the best meal I've had so far in KL (and I've been here two weeks!). I just wish it was closer to where I'm staying so I could go everyday.

Local Food Veganised! - Edit

I was fortunate enough to have a chat with the owner whilst waiting for my friend to arrive for our lunch date. Her and her husband went vegan over 20 years ago and have slowly influenced their family to do so as well, and to cater to the needs of her family members she decided to open a restaurant which now serves to vegans and non-vegans alike.

She is so passionate in the food she creates that it shows. Her most popular dishes are the Assam Laksa, which I thought closely resembles the real thing; the Burgers - we tried the soy pattie and my lunch mate thought it tasted exactly like fish fillet! The Vietnamese Rice Rolls were spectacular, with fresh ingredients rolled in delicate rice paper, served with a very moorish dipping sauce; the Fried "Butter" Oyster Mushrooms were crisp and perfectly golden paired well with a custard- like 'butter' sauce.

All the desserts are made fresh daily by the owner, there were even raw desserts such as the Tiramisu which I thought was quite decadent, we also had the warm Brownie which came with their home- made ice cream. On top of that, she insisted we try the Green Tea ice cream which she made using freshly ground matcha - and if you love green tea the way I do, you'll love this!

I probably went into a food coma after this, but it was well worth it!

The atmosphere was homey yet it got quite crowded over lunch time, which was impressive seeing that the area is a housing estate and most of the clientele are office people.

Definitely give this place a visit if you're rolling by KL.

Pros: Local Specialties, Knowledgable Staff, Great Food

Cons: A little far from everything else, Could get crowded at lunchtime

Amazing food and friendly staff! - Edit

I went here in November 2016. Food was delicious and good serving portion. I would highly recommend their asam laksa, burgers, sushi, wraps and brownies with ice cream. It was very good. The only dishes here that could be improved in terms of taste is the steak and spaghetti with meatballs. All the other 12 dishes I tried were very tasty. Staff and the restaurant's owner here were very friendly. Restaurant is also kept very neat and clean.

Pros: Lots of variety, Fully Vegan

Awesome vegan place! Check it out!!! - Edit

Loving Cafe is wonderful in many dimensions. First, it is a vegan cafe that is actually run by ethical vegans.

Second, it offers delicious food - especially their burgers are incredible, likely the best vegan burgers I have had in Malaysia so far (together with those of Woods Organic).

And third, the staff are friendly, it has a nice atmosphere, and when I visited it, I was impressed by how many other customers went there for their vegan food.

I would first and foremost suggest to try out their burgers - they have two, one made from mushrooms, the other made from soy. Both are delicious and present a fairly good value - a vegan burger with fries for below RM 10 is an awesome deal.

I have also tried out their Vietnamese rolls, which were equally wonderful. I can't wait to go there again to try out their other dishes.

They also do have sushi, which are ok (but not as good as vegan sushi in other places I have been to in KL), and a little bit expensive. So my suggestion would be to try those if you like them and focus more on their Chinese and Western food.

And finally, they have vegan desserts, lots of cakes and home-made icecream that I also truly enjoyed.

All in all, it is a place that is well worth the trip to Seri Petaling. Highly advised!!!
