Loving Hut - Edit

The food is really good, service is really fast, what else can I say? It's also not that expenisve. The most expensive main course at the time is 12.5 euro, which is pretty cheap.
The owner (?) was really nice, I really enjoyed the food. There can be quite a lot of people.
I ordered the cheese souffle, the peking duck and the tiramisu. All were equally delicious.

Owner shines like the sun... - Edit

Huge respect for the amazing owner of this cute place. Before she opened this place she had a little stand at weekly markets. She sold food for really low prices just to make sure people could have a great vegan bite and got to know more about this lifestyle. I am so glad she was able to open this restaurant later on. She has an heart of an angle this lady. She is working so hard and making really tasty vegan food. This restaurant is totally vegan (also all the lecture they have inside the shop: not vegetarian but truely vegan). They have junk food (hamburger, milkshakes, spring rolls, real tasty cashew balls, vegan peking duck, 'broodje Kroket') but also health food like green smoothies or for example rice with veggies and tempé or a green salad. There are seats inside.

Pros: Great staff, fully vegan, amazing food

Cons: They aren't open during the day anymore :(

Honest and simple - Edit

What I love most about this place is that it is not in the least pretentious. It is all about the food, and everything else is basic and as it should be. No energy wasted on hipster interior or hippie decorations.
We ordered curries and cake for dessert and it was all tasty, not expensive and de portion sizes were decent!

OMG - Edit

Al vaak over gelezen en nu eindelijk de kans om bij Loving Hut te eten. Zo'n naam verbind ik op de één of andere manier aan een fancy, veel te dure, hipster joint in het centrum maar niets van dat alles. Gewoon een sfeervol plekje in Amsterdam-West met kussentjes op de banken een sfeerlichtje op tafel, borden van de action en.... ja boeien hoe was het eten?
De jongeman vertelde ons dat ze sinds deze week een nieuwe kaart hadden, schrik om ons hart. Maar wat een keuze, kregen spontaan stress. We kozen vooraf voor zeewiersalade en kokossoep allebei simpel maar zo smaakvol.
Daarna 'Pekingeend' van Seitan met ananas en gebakken Mie. De Nep-zwemvogel had een heerlijke krokante korst en de groenten lekker pittig gekruid. Maar toen het nagerecht. Mijn vrouw had de meest heerlijke cheesecake die we ooit geproefd hebben en een bolletje onovertroffen chocolade ijs en ik een abrikozenflap, amandelhapje en ook dat heerlijke ijs.
O mijn goden, vegan hemel voor een snackbar prijs.

GA ALLEMAAL NAAR LOVING HUT

Pros: Goedkoop, gevarieerd, vriendelijke mensen en atmos

Cons: Geen

lovely food. - Edit

We recently had a few days in Amsterdam and walked from the city to Loving hut. It was really worth the walk out as all of the food was really nice.
Cooked fresh to order it was so tasty and great knowing that everything on the menu was vegan.

Pros: everything is vegan, inexpensive

Only love for this place. - Edit

Even though I don't live in Amsterdam and it's a 20 minute ride from my house, I come here regularly.

I looooove the tofu/ green peppers dish, get exited about the typical Dutch treats (like 'bitterballen') and drewl over the cakes and deserts. The staff is very friendly and always seems happy to work there. The dishes are very reasonable priced, maybe even cheap - in contrary to most of the other vegan places in Amsterdam. I love the Loving Hut!

Pros: Bitterballen!, Reasonable prices, Loving staff

One of the best places in Amsterdam - Edit

This is hands down the best place to eat in Amsterdam, at least in my opinion.
The place looks just like any other Loving hut, but the dishes are so different from the ones we have in slovenian huts.
We had spring rolls, peking duck and two different cakes and all of these dishes were delicious. We also had a chat with the cook, a lovely asian lady, full of energy and love, which we felt in the food she prepared for us.
My only regret is that we didn't eat here more often, just once was not enough. :D

Pros: Awesome food, Really friendly staff, Great prices

Typical Dutch snacks and Asian dishes in one place - Edit

The Loving Hut is becoming my goto vegan place when I travel because they try to add local dishes adapted to vegan in their menus. I was very pleased to know they had vegan Dutch croquettes and other snacks. The cheese soufflé was delicious.

Pros: Local food is similar to original, Very interesting fusion menu of Dutch and Asian fo, Very nice people and their English was very good

Cons: Pretty far from the city center

Simply Amazing! - Edit

Great place for vegans and non-vegans alike! Their menu has a ton of options for whatever mood you're in (Asian, burgers, soups, salads, desserts). The lady who helped us was really sweet, and the food was delicious! Portions are huge! It doesn't have the most restaurant-y vibe, but if you don't mind that, it's absolutely a must! Kind of far from the center, but that also means that it's not very touristy :)

Pros: tons of options, cheap, delicious!

Cons: far away from center, not the coziest atmosphere, no alcoholic beverages sold

Best vegetarian food in Amsterdam - Edit

I visit Amsterdam yearly and make loving hut a top priority to visit on my travels. The name says it all- you can taste how much love is put into their food. The flavors and variety are incredible and I've enjoyed every dish I've tried. The family that owns it are some of the most genuine people I've met in holland. I look forward to many more visits. Do yourself a favor when in the area and give them a try, you won't be disappointed :-)

Pros: Outstanding service , Great flavors, Lots of variety

Absolutely Fabulous! - Edit

We were in Amsterdam for two days a while back, and while we planned on going to two vegan restaurants over the course of the two days, we ended up in Loving Hut again the second day; it was that good!

All the reviews here were good, but then I got to the review of 'ichliebedich', who claimed this was just a mediocre Chinese restaurant where the dishes just happened to be vegan. I suddenly remembered my visit to Loving Hut in Maastricht, which actually fell into that category (yuck), but the one in Amsterdam is much more like the great Loving Hut in Leuven (Belgium). The person in charge even was a cook over there for a while (it took us a while, but we remembered seeing each others faces back then).

Each dish has a very specific taste (we checked 8 of them :) - 2x two starters and 2x two main courses) and the desserts are very, very nice as well. The people in the kitchen really know what they're doing!

Too bad Amsterdam is 250km away.

Pros: Very friendly staff, Is a lot like the Loving Hut in Leuven, Is nothing like the Loving Hut in Maastricht

Cons: It's a 2.5h ride to the restaurant from our place, ...which is the only bad thing I can come up with!

Loving Hut - Edit

I went here yesterday for dinner. Its a little bit outside the city centre, in more of a residential area, but is close to the 21 bus and the 12 tram. I arrived at 4:45, so I had to wait a few minutes for it to open back up at 5. The restaurant is bright, with a cafe feel coming from the scattered cushions and deli counter. There is a large television screen with Supreme Master content running, as to be expected in the Loving Hut, but when I was there the volume was off so it was not obtrusive.

The menu is a mixture of Asian-style dishes and Western-style dishes, and a mixture of full plates and snacks/appetisers. As I only wanted something light, I got a broodje croquette sandwich. This was a potato croquette with some sort of pickle mixed in, covered in bredcrumbs on a hot dog bun with mustard and salad. Small and simple but really tasty. I also got a latte machiato, a Bionade lemonade and a slice of chocolate cheesecake. The chocolate cheesecake was great, it also had coconut in it. All together it came to €13.70, so about average Amsterdam prices.

Pros: All vegan, friendly service, free wifi, good selec

great appetizers - Edit

Ordered several appetizers, they all tasted amazing!
Staff was friendly, I could pick up the order within 15 minutes. Place was packed with people. No airco though..(in summer might get hot in there)

Especially loved the fake shrimp!
My partner loved the samosa the most.
The cashewballs were really different and rich flavoured.
The sweet potato fries were delicious as well :)

Deserts were also great!
Tried the tiramisu, too sweet for my taste, also missed a solid base in the tiramisu.
orange cake was very nice. Vegan cake yay!

Pros: great appetizers, fast service, friendly staff

Cons: hot in summer, bland main dishes

Good Asian food - great service - Edit

staff are really friendly. we landed late in Amsterdam and came in at 8.45 (they close at 9) and the staff still served us everything we wanted - even packed us a tiramisu from the fridge. try the Dutch croquettes and satay skewers - coconut curry was also good.

Pros: all vegan great service

Cons: they might not take visa so check beforehand

More choice than at other Loving Huts - Edit

Having been to manz other Loving Huts around Europe, I expected this first Dutch venue to be fairly similar. However, I was suprised to find that as well as the usual selection of Asian dishes, sandwiches, burgers, cakes and vegan cheese specialities too. Fake meats still dominate overall though, so if that isn't your thing, perhaps you won't be too impressed. If you do like these sorts of food, I'd say that the quality is generally very high, and the portion sizes are good, whilst staff are generally helpful and make an effort to get to know regulars. As a bonus, the decor is nice too, though the TV can be distracting.

Pros: fully vegan, friendly staff, varied menu

Cons: TV in background

Mediocre and uninteresting. - Edit

Weird restaurant. Just normal plain Chinese food which happens to be all vegan. The food was very greasy. TV was on with Ching Hai cult propaganda. There was a loose bird. Isn't that a health violation? Not visiting this place again.

Pros: Colourfull restaurant, Nice owner

Cons: Greasy food, A loose bird, Ching Hai propaganda on TV

Best Vegan place in Amsterdam - Edit

I ate here on a Wednesday evening with my girlfriend. We ordered the Tempeh salad, Noodle soup bowl and a side of Kimchi. The place was peaceful, the lady who served us was lovely and the food was incredible.

It's easily the best Vegan place in Amsterdam, and a peaceful escape from the city too.

Pros: Everything. Especially the Tempeh.

The vegan refuge - Edit

Fresh food with a good balance in rice versus vegetables versus fake-meat and spices, clean but warm atmosphere, very nice staff. The sate is very good, and the soups, and... Basically I am never disappointed when I choose a meal. You can go for lunch, dinner, big meal, small. Veggies or fast food. They renew their menu often. Comfortable like a cafetaria, but not with the lowbrow atmosphere. Light colours in decor. Also great for kids. You get a lot for a low price. Sauces in main meals are delicious.

We're vegans and this is our nr 1 in Amsterdam. We are regulars here, and will probably be until we move away ;)

Cons: fresh tasty food, clean but warm atmosphere, very nice staff
