Our favorite vegan restaurant! - Edit

My son and I just love the fact that we can choose anything we want on the menu and not worry about consuming animal products. Their donuts and cinnamon rolls are to die for, too!

Pros: Vegan galore!

Amazing food - Edit

An all vegan, mainly vietnamese restaurant with other Asian inspired dishes. They also have vegan burgers and hot dogs as well as cakes, boba tea, smoothies, and other sweets. Hands down the best restaurant I've ever been to. Entres range from about $7 - $12

Pros: all vegan, nice, bright, open atmosphere, a lot of options

Cons: some drinks and desserts are a bit overpriced imo

Food was delicious! - Edit

Took the whole family and some non-vegan friends and everyone enjoyed the food completely. The kids got the nuggets and devoured them, husband got the club sandwich and was completely amazed at the quality, I got the Non-beef and broccoli - the veggies were cooked to perfection and the “beef” would trick and meat eater and that is according to my friend who eats beef! The place was bright and clean, the staff very friendly. I live about 35 minutes west of Falls Church and would still make a drive for their food whenever I can.

Vegtastic - Edit

First thing you see walking in the door is a fridge of AMAZING looking desserts. Not just a few, but several cakes, so many donut choices, and things I have never had! Cheesecake on a stick, cannoli, among other crazy delish looking things. I ordered 3 different desserts to go and I plan on going back to eat my way through all of them eventually. We ordered a few dishes and some sides-all amazing! Fried cheese sticks, dumplings, fries, and the usual loving hut menu. The staff was very friendly and quick to take orders, bring food, refill drinks, etc. Such a good staff and location!

Pros: Fantastic menu and dessert menu , Great staff, Big and clean

best vegan restaurant in the area - Edit

I have never eaten a bad thing here. Everything they serve is vegan, per the hostess, even the delicious chocolate desserts! The chocolate covered cheese cake on a stick blew my mind! Service is awesome and every non-vegan I’ve taken here has fallen in love and asked to come back. Pro tip: try the pho, you won’t be disappointed! ❤️❤️❤️

A great option - Edit

Loving Hut is one of the few true vegan options we have in Northern Virginia. The service is friendly and fast, the menu provides us with so many choices it's hard to decide. I usually don't eat soy protein and opt for tofu dishes instead. Today, though, I decided to go with one of their soy protein dishes. It did not disappoint.

Pros: Exclusively vegan, pleasant ambiance.

Cons: None.

Our love-hut - Edit

Since this is where I came with my beautiful lady, I have a special place for this loving hut.
The food and service has always been great and when something wasn't quite right we were given 50% off our meal without us saying anything.
I will say that the loving hut in Houston TX was brighter and a bit more tidy.
We also just tried their buffet on Nee Years eve and loved every bit.
We did miss out on Boba's once because it was after 8:30 pm so make sure to order before the kitchen closes.

Pros: Food quality, Friendliness, Menu item choices

Cons: Cleanliness

Lots of Options - Edit

It's nice that Loving Hut is TOTALLY vegan--it's like a unicorn in a herd of wild mustangs here in NoVa. There are lots of options on the menu, and I'm partial to their sandwiches over their other entrees, which can be a little bland and overcooked. That said, I think the best part of LH is their desserts! As someone with a ginormous sweet tooth, I can get my fill here of vegan cake pops, donuts and cake...oh my!

Pros: Sandwiches & fries , Assortment of desserts

Cons: A little tricky to find/get to, Entrees can be a little bland/overcooked

The best so far! - Edit

We found this place by plugging into Happy Cow. At first we did not know what to expect. However, the service was great, and fast. The food? Wow, cannot explain it as we were taken back on just how good Vegan Vietnamese food was. We are now tasked with going back again and again to try ALL this wonderful menu.

Pros: GreatsService and fast!, Absolutely fantastic food, Low prices

Cons: None so far

Love - Edit

The food is worth the drive across town from Alexandria. The service is a bit slow, but the vibe of the restaurant is one of leisure so it doesn't bother me as much as it might at another place. The menu is vegan and Vietnamese inspired, but there are a few other options like burgers, dogs, and fries (though I haven't tried these).

There's few restaurants where a vegan can order ANYTHING on the menu, so I got a bit crazy when I go here. The vermicelli lemongrass is amazing, and I always get a banh mi sandwich (or 2, or 3) to go. The place sells local, vegan parties and desserts from a nearby bakery.

Pros: Food quality, Price, Fully vegan but carnivores won't complain

Cons: A bit out of the way, slow service

Love me some Loving Hut - Edit

This is the 3rd Loving Hut I've been to, and it didn't disappoint! I got the vegan beef and broccoli with brown rice and loved it! The place is bright and clean. Will definitely be back if I'm ever driving through the area again.

Pros: all vegan, good prices, good portions

never a disappointment - Edit

This chain always delivers a high variety of tasty choices for a decent price. The staff here were very nice and the food came out quickly. My only concern was that I occasionally heard what sounded like a bird in the dining area. I looked around and didn't see any so all is well :) This place is located on the side of 7-Eleven.

Pros: speedy service, nice staff, variety

Some of the best Vegan food in the DC area - Edit

I am a big Loving Hut fan. I like every Loving Hut I've been to. So far I've been to Loving Hut in three states and two additional countries, with plans to add to that tally. Loving Hut in different locations can be quite different. This location is similar to Loving Hut in Milpitas, CA and San Francisco, CA. When this location opened in 2011, I knew and loved those California locations and was ecstatic they were opening a location in the Washington area.

One thing about this location that is unique is that they don't constantly play Supreme Master TV. I am kind of entertained by Supreme Master TV, but I know some people find it irritating.

I don't live particularly close to this location, I have access to other delicious vegan food closer to where I live, and I don't have much reason to be in Falls Church in general, but I make the trip out anyway. It's that delicious! My non-veg husband is also a big fan and gladly drives out with me.

The menu is predominately Vietnamese dishes. They also have a selection of veggieburgers, etc. Typically it's advisable to stick to the specialty of the restaurant, so I avoided the American dishes for a long time. But they're actually also really delicious. Personally, my favorite thing on the menu is the spicy noodle soup, but you really can't go wrong whatever you order.

Also, you MUST get dessert. Get it to go if you are full. They get desserts (donuts, cannoli, etc.) from Vegan Treats in Bethlehem, PA, and those desserts are part of the reason I make the trek from DC to Falls Church. It's objectively probably the best vegan-friendly bakery in the USA. Some of the treats are also form Sticky Fingers bakery in DC, which is also a good bakery (but closer to my house than Loving Hut). You can call and order through Loving Hut a cake from either Vegan Treats or Sticky Fingers to pick up at the restaurant. But maybe do avoid the ice cream, it's the one thing they have that's not great.

Pros: Such delicious food, whole menu is good, Desserts from Vegan Treats

Cons: No location in DC

I'm loving Loving Hut - Edit

This is my favorite vegan Vietnamese restaurant. It's a 45 minutes drive for me but I still go at least once a month. Usually I take my meat-eating family members and they love the food too, and we are Vietnamese so we know what good, authentic Vietnamese food tastes like.

Delicious food, good price - Edit

I tried the Golden Rolls, Vietnamese Vegan Steak Sandwich, Lemongrass Tofu w/ Mixed Veggies, the brownie and the Boston cream donut.

I ordered the food as takeout and it was ready pretty quickly.

Everything was delicious except the donut, which was too dry.

Most of the options included some form of mock meat for the protein in it. I would have preferred more options that are whole foods based.

Overall it was delicious food for a good price.

Pros: Delicious, Cheap, All Vegan

Cons: Not enough whole foods options, Doesn't deliver

Cons: a little bit shabby

Favorite cheap vegan eats - Edit

I absolutely love loving hut! It is the go to vegan place for my family, and I am the only vegan out of the four of us. Their Burgers are delicious and so are their French fries. My favorite is the vermicelli bowl and have tried and loved most of the Asian dishes. Some of the desserts are better than others. They sell sticky fingers baked goods so I would go for those. They also sell vegan skin care now which is lovely too.

Pros: versatile and decently priced, sticky fingers baked goods, sells vegan skin care and dog food

Delicious and Affordable! - Edit

Such reasonable prices for delicious vegan food! I tried the summer rolls, the loving hut salad, and the vegan steak sandwich. They were all delicious, especially the salad. I can't wait to go back, as I didn't have room for dessert and they all looked ridiculously delicious. I wouldn't take someone here on a first date, as it's a bit casual for that, but it's perfect for every other meal! This is a no brainer for any vegans and vegetarians in the area!

As a side note, I know some people can be weirded out by the Loving Hut tendency to have a TV running with videos about environmental degradation and Supreme Master Ching Hai. I guess I have a different sense of entertainment than some, because I always think those videos are an endearing and quirky part of the Loving Hut experience. During my visit to this location, the TV was turned off and I found myself a bit disappointed!

Pros: Delicious Vegan Food, Reasonable Price, Friendly Service

Vegan Treats! - Edit

We LOVE this place! The family that runs Loving Hut are great! They remember us every time we come in, and are always so welcoming! We go there fairly frequently now, as this is one of the only locations (at least the only we know of) that offers such a wide selection of desserts from the Vegan Treats Bakery, (based out of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) at a VERY reasonable price! We've gone through a variety of items on their menu, and have settled on the golden rolls, vegan fish clay pot, and the crispy noodles (not sure of the exact name of this one, but it's a vegetable medley over crispy noodles). It took us quite a few times of trial and error to finally find some dishes we liked . . . while the prices are GREAT, the staff is wonderful, and they offer vegan treats (!), many of the dishes are average at best. We will continue to frequent them as long as they're around!
Updated from previous review on Friday January 20, 2012

-------------------------

After having frequented this place since they opened, it has only continued to get better and better! While we had a hard time finding dishes we loved initially, the recipes are constantly improving, and the prices have remained consistently low! Who says you can't get vegan "fast" inexpensive food?! The family that owns this restaurant is wonderful, and they work hard to make a personal connection with all of their customers. I've recently talked to one of the owners, and they are going to look into adding a Vegan brunch buffet at least once a month -- more to follow! Also to note, while their hours are 11-9 Monday-Sunday, they typically extend their weekend hours until 10 during the warm summer months. Finally, they take orders for Vegan Treats Bakery, but ensure you call early in the week before they place their order. Enjoy!

Pros: Great Customer Service, Vegan Treats!, Reasonable Prices

Saramste 20 Jan 2012 - I'd also like to add, as another member did below, this place may be a little tough to find your first time around. I was convinced that my GPS was misleading me, or that I had inadvertently typed the wrong address, as it took me through a couple of side streets in a residential neighborhood to get there (off of route 50).

Hidden Treasure! - Edit

I love Loving Hut! I ordered the Lemongrass Tofu & it was awesome. It wasn't super crowded or noisy, so the atmosphere was great. The staff was so nice. I got the raspberry cheesecake for dessert & holy #%$! It was awesome. Not like other vegan cheesecakes where it tastes tofu-ish or something. Homemade whipped cream on top too. I got two donuts, that were a bit dry when I ate them a few hours later, but still good. I'm definitely going back!
