First Review by sadimgnik

super impressed - Edit

First visit and we have found our calling. This place is super tasty, large portions and quick friendly service.

Huge range of options and many tasty mock options of old favourites.

It's an hour away from home for us and we will be coming back again and again after this experience.

Pros: Large Portions, Vegan, Freaking Tasty

Cons: too far from my house

good food and good prices - Edit

This place is great because it's got a wide range, is cheap and has good service. Some dishes are better than others in my opinion. The starters are great, as well as the cakes and the super choc berry smoothie. Other favourites are the seven seas, the loving wrap, the heavenly salad and the fake duck pancakes.

Pros: good food , easy to find , cheap

Always good food - Edit

I am a big fan of all loving huts and this one delivers also... they have a wide variety of mostly asian inspired vegan meals and even a few western dishes such as lasagne and spagetti.. Im a regular at this restaraunt for the food and the atmosphere and the service (atmosphere is simple - but inviting)

hit and miss - Edit

I have been here several times now, my first visit was a good experience however my 2nd and 3rd were not so great. The girl on the front counter serving was so rude and actually seemed a bit bored being there. Portions sizes my 2nd time here were much smaller than my 1st visit as well (I ordered the same items). I wouldn't go out of my way to visit here anymore but if im in the area I'll get takeaway.

Pros: cheap prices, 100% vegan, yummy food

Cons: rude counter staff , portion sizes seem to change

special vegan restaurant - Edit

I have eaten at Loving Hut restaurants in Australia, Thailand and Vietnam but I always look forward to visiting to this one ... Loving Hut is not like other restaurant as it is run by followers of the Supreme Master tv group ... sometimes I have been as part of a vego group but mostly I go on my own ... I have worked my way through everything on their menu and have not been ever disappointed with the quality or quantity of the food ... this week's visit was no exception with same beautiful food and same great service ... updated menu photos uploaded

Pros: great vego restaurant

Hit and Miss - Edit

The food is not bad but can be quite oily, and sometimes not hot enough. Overall it's quick, easy and reasonably priced, but not very fresh. If you're into fake meat and vegan versions of old favourites, you'll have a good time. If not, there are better options.

Pros: Reasonable price, All vegan, Quick service

Cons: Lacks freshness

Feeling the Love - Edit

I've made several trips to The Loving Hut, and their service and food are equally amazing! There's something for everyone, and even my non-veg friends love eating here! They have a great, loving vibe and their passion for vegan food is amazing! I've tried several dishes here and am particularly partial to their Peking Luck Pancakes and Tom Yum Fried Rice.

Delicious and huge menu ! - Edit

I had a fantastic experience at The Loving Hut…I found the guy who served very friendly. I was surprised by such an extensive menu and decided on the creamy mushroom "cabonara" pasta…wow !! the tastiest meal ! and HUGE well worth the cpl extra $s enough for two to share. Fast service too. Looking forward to my next visit :)

Pros: delicious, big menu selection, fast service

Try smiling once in a while! - Edit

I have been eating at Loving Hut for many years now and always love the food- can't lose with such an extensive menu-ALL DELICIOUS and the food never disappoints. However, tonight I went with a group of friends and we were served (if you can call it that!) by the most miserable young lady- I hope for her sake she was just having a bad day! We all agreed the food was great- but two of the party said they would never return because of the poor service.

Pros: Excellent food, Good Value, Generous servings

Cons: Miserable staff !

Mixed Experiences - Edit

I've been here a number of times, had some good experiences, and some slightly more 'iffy' ones. I'll continue to return, however, as my non-veg friends love the food here, and the prices really can't be beaten. Some of the menu items are absurdly good (especially the mushroom carbonara, so creamy!).

The service here is really speedy, and a couple of times it has been too speedy - to the point where my food wasn't warmed through when it arrived. For this reason, I'll never order the sweet & sour nuggets again.

The decor is a little bland too, but that's okay. Again, with the price of the meals (and the deliciousness when they do get it right) it's worth a try if you can find a menu item that you enjoy.

Pros: Excellent value, Tasty carbonara, Quick service

Cons: Decor, Food not always cooked through properly

Amazing - love love love - Edit

All expectations exceeded. They may have got our order slightly wrong, but it just meant we enjoyed the salt n pepper tofu instead of the salt n pepper mushroom. The food is amazing, prices are great, staff are lovely, setting was comfortable and they have a great freezer selection of goodies. Wish I had room for dessert, but alas an excuse to come back.

Pros: Good prices , Delicious Food, All rounder!

Cons: May get order wrong - human error, Lots of deep fried food, There are none of these in SA!

Love Loving Hut - Edit

With several visits to this Loving Hut in the last few years I have always found the service and food of a reasonable quality. The decor and atmosphere is more canteen quality, so it not your 'hot date' type place to take your veggo girlfriend. However, all food is vegan and reasonably priced. The meals are predominantly Asian inspired and they use quite a bit of soy and tofu in their dishes. Vegetables in all dishes are fresh and not overcooked and they often have specials of the day that include seasonal fruit or vegetables - so there is often something new and different to try.

Pros: economical, vegan!, varied menu

Cons: canteen-style decor and atmosphere

Good but... - Edit

Overall my first outing to The Loving Hut Mt Gravatt was fine. The staff were both nice and fast but don't offer the good service you might expect from a restaurant. The food came out quickly and was pretty nice - although there seems to be soy and/or tofu in just about everything (maybe that's just my impression).

If I could change one thing it would be that they concentrated on interior decoration and ambience. Everything is either too plain or too tacky and there's really no need for either. If it weren't for my choice of diet I wouldn't eat there just because it felt more like a canteen than a fun outing.

Overall it was good enough for me to go back.

Updated from previous review on Sunday September 28, 2014

Pros: The food is fast and quite nice overall., Staff are courteous and friendly enough, Price is quite affordable.

Cons: More like a canteen than restaurant, Staff not great at service, Tofu/Soy in almost everything

Loving It! - Edit

Loving Hut has become my favourite veg restaurant!
The meals are quite large, very affordable, and taste absolutely heavenly! There's live music on Thursdays and 10% off dinner on Tuesdays, alfresco dining as well.
I've tried their Beijing Black Bean, which became an instant favourite, the flavour just blew me away!
The "Seven Seas Delight" comes as a close second, it's crispy and delightful with a sticky ginger-soy sauce, and to be honest I don't even know what it was made of, but the place being a vegan spot I didn't have to ask :)
My husband said their Laksa was the best one he's ever had, and he's a carnivore. Good news for me, I won't have to twist his arm to go back there for a meal, hehe.
The "Ten Wonders" was great too, it just surprised me that the veggies on top of the noodles weren't cooked, but raw. Still delicious though. Oh, and the "Crispy Yum" was tasty too. I took my meat eating mates there and they were very surprised by how tasty vegan food can be.
Even the biggest meat fan of our group said he'd be back, and so will I.

Pros: Cheap, Large meals, Food comes out quickly

Best Vegan Restaurant in Brisbane - Edit

Dress casual but eat like a King! Lasagne, Laksa, Malay Satay Sticks, Nuggets, Tom Yum rice - the most extensive menu for a Vegan joint. This is the place to take your non-Vegetarian friends and they can still order meals they know - and they will love the taste and textures. I used to love The Magic Wok / Leaderbowl in Sunnybank (now closed) but this is the best of the best. The Green Edge (Windsor) and Tea Master (Fortitude Valley) are the next best.

Having eaten at the Loving Huts in Hong Kong and South Korea, which are also great, I have to say our Brisbane shop is something very, very special. Enjoy the casual atmosphere and the wonderful tucker!

Pros: Most extensive Vegan menu ever, Most dishes are winners, Car Park out back

Cons: Supreme Master TV

Love Loving Hut - Edit

This has gotta be one of the best vegan restaurants in Brisbane. The prices are great, the food is consistently good, and the range of food is amazing! I take all my non-vegan friends here and they love it and later take their own families and friends here! Oh...and the price is so reasonable! I was so impressed I have written a review, and that doesn't happen very often!

Pros: delicious and consistent, well priced, clean with a 5 star highest rating

Great vegan fast food - Edit

Loving Hut is vegan chain slightly more upmarket than a fast food restaurant and being what it is - I think it is fabulous!
I have been many times and I think I have tried nearly everything on the menu. I like the asian salad and simply because I miss it from my childhood - spaghetti bolognaise. My husband has the black bean dish nearly every time and LOVES it. The only dish that I don't like is the sweet and sour 'pork' as the sauce is very sweet and ordinary.
The pan bread, if you like fried food, is yummy. Also the iced coffees and desserts are scrumptious. Yes sometimes they are busy and the service a tad slow and sometimes communication a bit lacking, but they are always pleasant and lovely. Sometimes it is a bit noisy for me, but that is everywhere you go.
I have been to a few Loving Huts now (the other 2 in Sydney) and I find the variety of food here is better and I enjoyed the food more.
I love their message and that they care about animals and the environment as well and support charities.
Updated from previous review on Saturday August 17, 2013

Pros: Great food selections Asian to western, Nearly everything tastes great, Support animals and green causes

Cons: fast food style, so don't expect gourmet, not open Sunday

My weekly staple - Edit

Loving Hut is right around the corner from me - great convenience food for my family's weekly take away! As others have said, it's such a relief to walk into somewhere and know that you can eat everything on the menu without question! I discovered this gem about 6 months into my vegan journey and have loved trying everything on the menu.

The food and flavours are generally fantastic. The lasagne is a hands-down family favourite, closely followed by the vegetable korma. Hubby loves their spring fried rice. Servings are generous and reasonably priced ($11-$14 for mains). We share meals and always have leftovers.

I must say, I have tried all their desserts and dislike them all! The cheesecakes are bland and I feel sick every time I bite the chocolate cake (hubby occasionally orders it). Sorry folks - am surprised to read so many reviews praising them when I find them all foul. Desserts from menu much better but are pretty basic. Ice cream with an Oreo stuck on top, for example.

Now to the cons (yes, even I can see they exist!). The atmosphere is pretty average - "canteen feel" agreed by previous review. If only they had table cloths and were set with cutlery and maybe a candle, the ambiance would change dramatically. It's self-serve cutlery, napkins, water and other condiments. It seems each choice that detracts from the place is for cost-cutting purposes.

The service is hit-and-miss. They're all about pushing people thru, with zero customer connection. I have stopped several staff members at the counter and forced them to look me in the eye and say hello. ONE exception - a gorgeous, friendly young girl who, after 2 years of regular visits, is the only one who acknowledges me as a returning customer. Wish I knew her name. Everyone wears jeans and they're not too interested in accommodating special requests. Service just downright sucks. Good service is very important to me, so it says a lot about their food that I keep coming back.

Also agreed that there is a whole lot of fake meat going on in the menu. The 'cutlets', though tasty, are hardly a health food. They even have fake prawns!! Kinda wish they'd avoid fried, sugary, mock-meat items on the menu. I asked what was in the lasagne cheesy sauce (it's freakin awesome) and was told it's just flour, sugar and water!!! So that makes me sad. I'm a vegan for health reasons.

All that said, the food is super tasty and an ideal place to take skeptical carnivores. I'll remain a loyal regular despite their downfalls.

Pros: food , price , serving size

Cons: customer service , too much mock meat, ambiance

Worth trying ... - Edit

It's popular. Everyone knows it. I have visited many Loving huts around the world, and this is average. Food is ok and the desserts, especially vegan cheesecakes, are just heavenly with their chai latte. Often the service can be friendly but sometimes a bit disorganized. And I never can forget how I once ordered a drink that was never brought to me and I went to complain, the waitress asked me to go from table to table and ask if someone has accidentally got my drink ... But that was the only time I got upset with them, otherwise have left happy.

Pros: Vegan, desserts ver yummy

Cons: not much variety, average food, sometimes a bit unprofessional service

Made my partner very sick - Edit

We visit loving hut because they give you the option of no onion or garlic.
My partner is severely intolerant to onion. It makes him sweat and shake and vomit. He CANNOT EAT IT under any circumstances. So he always makes it very clear to the wait staff that his meal cannot have onion. He even checks again before he eats the meal to be absolutely sure. Well guess what? Tonight his meal DID have onion. Despite checking and double checking. Now he's really sick. We will never eat at Loving Hut again!!!

Great food but service is lacking - Edit

My partner and I have been to this restaurant a couple of times and although the food is great, the service - not so much. The first time we went it was a busy Saturday night and it didn't take us too long to order our food and be seated - maybe 15 mins with a packed restaurant. The food came out quite quickly as well - except for our desserts. We waited 30 mins after we finished our mains before asking where our dessert was. 5 minutes later, my partner got his dessert - but it was the incorrect one. We got it switched over and again asked where my dessert was (which was choc mint ice cream). The waitress said she'd check on it. 15 minutes later we stopped the same waitress as she walked past and then she remembered and rushed back into the kitchen and I got my dessert straight away. Considering it was 2 scoops of ice cream with an oreo on top - it should have come sooner. And my partners dessert was a slice of cake that was in the glass display case so we really shouldn't have waited so long. The problem was even though they had enough staff when we first sat down, 2 large groups came in for what looked like birthday parties. As soon as these groups ordered their food it seemed like they had priority over everyone else. But despite this, the food was good!

The second time we went, the food was great but again the service wasn't. This time it was a Tuesday night so there were less people in the restaurant but they only had 2 people working! One was taking orders and the other had to run out the food. Again we waited too long for our food and my partner kept having to go up to check on it. Again, I was a little disappointed by the service but the food was good. I'll probably still go there as my partner and I do enjoy the food, but we will probably get take away instead.

If you go there, two things to note: First - on Tuesday they have a 10% discount. Second - it may seem like they have starters (which are listed as snacks) but they don't. They make the snacks and mains at the same time and bring out the dishes as soon as they are done. So sometimes you may find your main coming out before the snack. They don't tell you this when you go there and some people get confused.

Pros: Good food, Nice variety, Discount on Tuesdays!

Cons: Service isn't the best, Meals can came out at different times

Vegan Hut - Edit

We have visited this Loving Hut several times in the last few years, we always find it clean, the staff friendly and the food tasty. The menu is displayed on a wall in large pictures, easy to follow and with occasional special dishes of the day. The prices are good for what you get and the range of (mostly Asian style) dishes allows a good variety of healthy and err,.. less healthy options to be selected. The restaurant has a bit of a canteen feel about it, so may not be good for a romantic dinner, but definitely good for a nice no-brainer vego feed when you are not in the mood to attempt navigation of a meat-based restaurant menu.

Pros: Economical, Vegan, Easy to order
