First Review by Patapompon

Large portions for decent price - Edit

We came here in the evening to eat a la carter, and after reading some quote negative reviews on Happy Cow, we were pleasantly surprised!!
The restaurant itself isn't particularly pretty, and is on a noisy road, bit this means it is a convenient location and easy to find, and spacious.
The guy in charge of the restaurant was very friendly and ran around to serve us as quickly as possible!! He also gave me a list of other veg/vegan throughout Peru.
I can't remember the exact names of the dishes, but we had "three flavours" seitan with veg and rice, and a seitan and brocolli stir fry. Both were massive portions (for 18 and 12 sol), the seitan was a really nice texture, with lots of veg and pretty tasty sauce. We had a juice (4 sol) and smoothie made with soya milk (8 sol) that were huge. The smoothie was amazing, almost like an ice cream!!
The food came out after 15 mins, and the drinks after 30, but both were made fresh (food was very hot which isn't always the case when it gets served up quickly)
Not the cheapest or most glamorous of venues, but definitely worth a visit!

Pros: All vegan with a wide choice, Fair price for the amount of food, Smoothies!!

Bad food, bad service, don't eat here. - Edit

Ate here with some friends last night and was thoroughly disappointed. The food took extremely long to arrive, plate by plate. 2 out of the 4 plates just about edible, the other two were terribly cooked, burnt and genuinely tasteless, we could not eat them. Our juices arrived and hour and a half after ordering them. The place itself was dirty and cold. Waitress was friendly. Would not recommend anyone eating here.

Good vegan food - Edit

I have been to many Loving Hut restaurants so far and this was not one of the best, but all things considered is definitely a nice place to have a meal. Conveniently located next to a lot of bus terminals (on Bolognesi street), long opening hours, many options on the menu. The place looks a bit old and it seems that they don't have many customers but the owner was friendly and welcoming. I ordered a la carte and the food was very nice. I also had a take out to eat later on the bus.

Pros: vegan, extensive menu, good price / portions

Cons: not all the dishes were available

Bad - Edit

Place near city center, big space inside. Took menu of the day (soup, main, salad for 8 soles). Food wasn't tasty, but it was food and we were hungry. We ate it, even though some beans in the soup were nasty harsh (like old, not fresh). Main was rice and lentils (bean family too). Both of us felt heavy in the belly and burped.

Pros: Cheap, Near city center, Pure vegan

Cons: Not tasty at all, Not fresh!!!

bad service bad food - Edit

Unfortunately we were served by the rudest lady who wouldnt give us drinks and also failed to tell us that what we ordered they didn't have. we ordered again and she got our order wrong and also told us when we got our food that they didn't have the drink we ordered. After asking twice for drinks and her failing to tell us they didn't have what we ordered we were so annoyed that we couldn't eat the food plus it came with that gross fake meat and the sauce was gluggy. i hated everything about this place even the seating was dirty and ugly. no no no no no !

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Everything

Would recommend - Edit

The restaurant sits right on a busy road with a lot of street noise, but the food makes it worth it. The fruit smoothies and the fresh veggies are great. The tofu fake meat is greasy, but that just makes it more yummy despite being less healthy. It isn't too expensive and it's hard to find a table at lunch time among all of the locals! The staff is nice and they work hard to try to deliver good service.

Pros: Only vegan place for a hundred miles!, Big portions and tasty

Hearty portions and healthy - Edit

We visited for lunch not expecting much and we're pleasantly surprised. Enough so to return the following day. The menu del dia was 8 soles and for that we had the choice of soup or salad. The soup was a huge portion and simple but very hearty. Stocked full of lentils, beans and potatoes. Realistically it was big enough for me to be satisfied with just that. Then came the main plate. There were two choices and I went for the beans and rice which also came with a pile of fake meat sautéed with tomatoes and onions and a small side salad. I hate to waste food but the portion was just too big and both my boyfriend and I had to leave food behind (not like us as we both have good appetites!) At dinner the following day we ordered off the ala carte menu and had the bistek and sautéed brocoli. Both were full meals that came with rice. The brocoli was stir fried with tomatoes, onions and soya meat, while the bistek was a soya steak served with fried plantains, salad and French fries. We would definitely go back as the price and quality was amazing for where we were. Everything was super healthy and they also have the option of brown rice which was nice.

Pros: Cheap , Healthy, Easy to find

Cheap and cold - Edit

[Late October 2014, the information was as follows:
Open Monday-Saturday 8am-8pm, Sunday 10am-4pm
Set Menus: 7-12 soles]

I ate there once, and it wasn't really a good experience. I chosen the economic menu (7 soles) that came with a "palta rellena" (but it was more an avocado salad than a stuffed avocado, and really small) and a caihua rellena (the stuffed caihua was cold and flavourless).
Maybe it was due to my late lunch, but I found it a little bit expensive for the quality and quantity of the plates, especially in comparison with the two other restaurants of Chiclayo.

Pros: Open Sunday, Cheap

Cons: Flavourless, Served cold
