First Review by Vegan Gal

Best Vegan Restaurant - Edit

I visited Houston for the first time and wanted to try as many vegan places as I could while I was there. I tried many, but this place was by far the best vegan restaurant I've ever been to.
The food was incredible, had a great variety, and the place was cute. They make their own sauces with their food and they are amazing.
My favorites are the Golden Nuggets, Loving Hut burger with fries, the cheesecake, the chocolate cake, and the Lovepuccino with Boba.

Pros: Amazing food, Nice staff

Cons: Long drive from the Montrose district

I'm loving this place - Edit

So we were on this side of town which is far from us and looked up on the HappyCow app to see what choices we had. With the rave reviews we chose to come here and I'm so happy we did. This place is absolutely awesome if you are trying to be healthier and making better choices. Great ambience and large selection of vegetarian choices....all our 3 dishes we tried were tasty. I'm not sure if it was mental but I just felt better eating there amongst all the other people, maybe vegetarians have better auras?? I can't wait to be back, I just wish it was closer...

Cons: to far midtown area

I like this place - Edit

Vegan asian food. Moderately priced and all vegan. My omni sister loves the pho here and likes it better than most other places in Houston. I like the pho but personally prefer it without the soy protein beef. The flavor of the beef is there but the texture is nothing like real beef and turns me off a bit. Vermicelli bowl is pretty good but a little bland.

As an appetizer, I recommend the golden rolls. I ordered a chocolate cake which was just okay - too much coconut flavor for me. Also got an Iced Mumbai Tea which is spicier than other ones I've tried. Not the best, I will try the thai tea next time.

A lot of things are hit and miss but if you want somewhere to go without worrying about what's vegan and what's not, try this place out. Nothing is particularly amazing or stands out but it is worth a visit. I should mention they have vegan "propaganda" pasted everywhere. Not bad but may be weird to some.

Check out groupon because they usually have a deal on there.

All vegan, very tasty - Edit

I would come to Loving Hut at least once a week when I worked in west Houston. Since then, it is too far me to travel. I really enjoy the Saigon Crispy tofu, Noble Broccoli, BBQ Vermicelli bowl. Their "American" section of the menu is not as good as their other options. Tasty, fast, inexpensive...but sometimes greasy/unhealthy.

Pros: Fast, Inexpensive, Excellent food

Good - Edit

It was good. I don't like how the meals are laid out. I wish the "meat" came on the rice instead of having to order both. It was still very good and I liked the layout of the place. I didn't like that none of the tables were clean when we were there. Literally every table had old food and plates left behind and we had to wait. Other than that it was good

Love Loving Hut - Edit

I'd eat here daily if it weren't more than 40 miles each way from my home, through heavy traffic. 100% vegan, pleasant atmosphere, soothing decor... Delicious, filling, well seasoned food complimented by friendly, knowledgeable staff. Part of the international chain of Loving Huts, I seek them out while traveling and have never been disappointed.
Still Houston location is my favorite; you always remember your first, right?
Features daily lunch specials, Monday-Thursday, 11am-3pm, rotating among menu items, for less than $10.
Extensive menu of vegan options. Uses non-gmo soy. Many dishes can be made soy free. Hot and cold beverages, mock-tails.
Desserts include a silky vegan flan, various cakes: banana, chocolate, carrot and cheese cake.
My favorites: Arigato sushi, spring rolls, barbeque rolls, guru fried rice & their signature Spicy Cha Cha.
Each Loving Hut has slightly different menu, & standards might be a little differently spiced depending on location. Still, good food, good people, good service, good prices..

Pros: 100% vegan, Inexpensive, Knowledgeable friendly staff

Cons: Distance from my home, Busy street

Delicious food - Edit

This restaurant is completely vegan. It has a nice atmosphere. So far none of the dishes that I have tried have NOT disappointed. Keep in mind some of the items have quite a bit of oil. Nonetheless they do include plenty of veggies. I'm not a big fan of mock meet but this place prepare did very well. Their drinks are great, my favorite is the Thai tea.

Pros: Vegan, Cruelty free

Love this place! - Edit

This place is delicious. It was the first vegan restraint I went to so I was overwhelmed with options! So many good things to choose from :)
I HIGHLY recommend the Hawaiian hibiscus tea, the wontons and the BBQ burger.(More like a teriyaki burger but the pineapple and mushroom... delicious!) But you really can't go wrong.

Good variety and tasty dishes! - Edit

The menu here is pretty varied and has a great value. There is something for everyone and I haven't had a bad dish yet. Staff is friendly and the atmosphere is laid back and relaxing.

The last time we were here, a friend got the curry and it came out in a huge bowl! The chow mein and spicy kung pao are pretty yummy. Can't wait to try more dishes.

Pros: Good Variety, Great Value, Friendly Atmosphere

awesome Chinese dishes! - Edit

We got 3 or 4 different Chinese-style dishes with tofu and vegetables, and they were all really good. The sweet and sour tofu was the best I've had anywhere and seemed a lot healthier than at a typical Chinese restaurant. They also have surprisingly good desserts. Plus, they are VEGAN!

Pros: vegan, sweet and sour tofu, desserts

Cons: really far from downtown Houston

Disappointed - Edit

We have been to several Loving Huts in Asia and Europe. Two weeks ago, we went to the one in Dallas and we loved it. So now that we are in Houston visiting my aunt, we went there with her (she is not a vegetarian nor a vegan).
In this restaurant, you have to go to the counter to order, which is different from all the Loving Huts we have been to. We ordered 4 dishes (all Asian food, also with faux meat). They were all not that great or tasty. Not at all comparable with the Dallas place. We were very disappointed, especially as we took my aunt there to show her vegan food.

Pros: All vegan , Parking

Cons: Food not tasty, No real service

Tasty Food - Edit

We have been to Loving Hut several times and have enjoyed it each time. This was one of the many vegan restaurants we frequented this summer with our kids. We especially enjoyed the Hawaiian burger and the pho soup. Also, the vegetable chow foon noodle dish was very tasty. I don't like the fake meats so much, but the flavors are very good. We highly recommend it.

Pros: Tasty, Fresh, Many Options

Cons: Only One In Houston

Incredible good soy meats - Edit

My husband I are vegan and this place is close to our offices. We go there at least once a week for lunch. The restaurant is all vegan and very eco-friendly. I like that they try to minimize their footprint. They are really good in their soy meats.
I love the food there, but I would call it 'comfort food'. Health wise I might not be able to survive eating here on a daily basis, since the base of the dishes are not too rich in vegetables, grains or beans. I think I must have tried every dish on the menu by now and all of them taste very good to me. Even carnivore friends are willing to join us for lunch here once in a while.

I like that they offer fresh pressed juices and brown rice. Since the management changed this year (2013), the service is much faster. That was previously a reason for us not being able to make it over lunch. Currently it is not a problem at all.

This restaurant belongs to a chain and they play some obscure speeches of the 'supreme master'on TV all the time. I find that rather weird, but I do not have to pay attention to it and it’s all good.

Food wise and service wise, this place has always been excellent.

Pros: great fake meat replacements, eco-friendly, very friendly staff

Cons: could have more healthy foods, could offer more than just soy milk

simple and clean - Edit

Was traveling through Houston and this popped up.
It's very clean, no traffic and has a bright atmosphere.
I ordered the Rainbow Salad which looked great on the menu. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to the description or the picture. It's mostly iceberg lettuce with a small amount of the other ingredients (red cabbage, cucumber, tomato, cilantro, bell pepper, carrots) mixed together with a soy patty on top.
The Golden Wanton appetizer was tasty, but on their own (skip the sauce).
It seems like they specialize in soy meats (which fill the menu), which is great, but not if you are looking to keep it light.
I'll try it again, but wouldn't recommend it until then.

Pros: clean, alt-meats

Cons: no light dishes

Underwhelming - Edit

This restaurant is very overrated: portions are small, and service is excruciatingly slow. Indeed, the second time I went, some customers asked for their money back because they waited so long. As for the food, it‘s OK but not great, and the portions are on the small side.
I really wanted to like the place but just couldn't.

Eh. - Edit

Such a clean big place, but WAY outside of Houston (which is a con for me, since I live in the loop). We ordered a dumpling appetizer, and while the dumplings were tasty, three were hot and two were freezing, making me believe they had been frozen and reheated. My dish was soaked in soy sauce - so salty I couldn't eat it. I wouldn't go back, unless I was nearby.

Pros: All vegan, Very eco-conscious , Nice interior

Cons: Far out of Houston, Food quality just okay

Loving Hut Restaurant Review - Edit

My husband and I went today for our 25th wedding anniversary. Since we are new to being vegetarian, I suggested to go to Loving Hut vegan restaurant. This restaurant is in West Houston. It is in a safe environment near West Houston Hospital, Walmart, Lowes, HEB and Whole Foods in the vicinity. Once you enter the casual, clean restaurant, you go to the counter to order and pay. They will help you choose which menus are customer's favorite. My husband ordered Seaweed Ocean that looked and tasted like a delicious grilled fish. I ordered Golden Beauty. It tasted like crispy, spicy chicken nuggets. It tasted better than the real chicken nuggets. For drinks and dessert, I had the Ice Mumbai Tea and carrot cake since the silk plan cake was out. The carrot cake was OK but the Ice Mumbai tea was so delicious that I will order 2 glasses next time I go there. My husband ordered banana cake and Happy Go Lucky. His banana cake was also OK but his drink was emptied quickly too because he liked it. Please use bigger and real glass for the drinks. The glass will make the drinks taste better. We will be back to eat and drink. The place is clean and casual, the staff are polite and the service was quick. Best of all, the menu selections are healthy and affordable. Thank you for serving Houston a vegan restaurant.
Mrs. Cook

Pros: Healthy Vegan Food, Affordable Price, Polite Staff

Cons: Delicious drinks in small plastic glass

Friendly Customer Service & Food - Edit

Loving Hut has a very nice atmosphere and a warm home-like feeling. I kept my order light and only got the golden nuggets and the banana fritters. Both were delicious by the way. The lady who took my order was very sweet and even held a brief conversation with me about my transition to the vegan lifestyle. Loving Hut has a very appealing menu, so of course I'll be back soon!

Pros: Atmosphere, Prices, Desserts

My favorite place to eat - Edit

The best Vegan restaurant in Houston that I have been to. Diverse menu and run by the nicest people you will ever meet. The food here is superb and eating here is for a good cause, our planet's survival. What else could you want! The BBQ sandwich could fool a lot of people if they didn't know it wasn't meat. Their eggplant dish is simply wonderful. I also love the Guru Fried Rice (curried rice) and the Hot Mumbai Spice Tea. Loving Hut is a chain sponsored by a Buddhist master teacher Ching Hai who explains how many of the world's ills can be remedied through being vegan. The food here is superb and eating here is for a good cause, our planet's survival.

Pros: Excellent Food, Pleasant Environment, Decent Value

Cons: Location a bit remote

Love Loving Hut! - Edit

Great food, desserts, & drinks. My family went and brought food back. It's very clean and earthy and the people who work there are friendly. It's fast food and they do take-out. Definitely one of my favorite restaurants. I'm happy seeing Loving Hut expand to over 100 locations worldwide and extra happy Loving Hut came to Houston!

We ordered:
Exquisite Curry
SAVE-PLANET Curry
Fabulous Pho/Bun Bo Hue
Silky Flan
Pink Lady
Wonton Harmony
Golden Wonton
Guru Fried Rice
Seaweed Ocean

We absolutely loved everything. Especially Exquisite Curry, SAVE-PLANET Curry, Fabulous Pho, Silky Flan, Wonton Harmony, & Seaweed Ocean.

It's pricey but they give you a lot of food. We eat here frequently, and you would love it and eat here frequently too!
