Nice buffet!

Surprised by the flavours and structures of this buffet! Lady couldn’t speak English but luckily a Vietnamese customer translated for us. You just grab a plate and put on it what you want. Best option around in Ha Long!

amazing choice

this was such a welcoming cafe/restaurant!! the staff were so helpful and friendly, despite many not knowing much English. the food was delicious and we were so shocked by the mock meats - honestly tasted like real meat (which kinda made me feel a bit weird haha.)

Pros: cheap/affordable, lovely staff

Cons: a lot of fried/oily foods

Good selection

Good selection of dishes and its all you can eat. For the price it's amazing. Price depends on how much you eat (30k-60k). Drinks 10k extra. My girlfriend and I both ate our fill, and she had a drink, all for 85k. No less than 24 dishes (plus 2 soups), about 50/50 mock meat and just vegetables....There was also aircon and a fan.

Pros: Lots of options., Cheap for what you get., Options without mock meat.

Cons: Smallish - just 18 seats.

Cheap vegan food.

I think no one in their right mind would complain about getting that much food for that price (3$). Some dishes were better than others but this is how it works. We ate there 3 or 4 times when in Ha Long and that was enough. The girl working there was friendly enough, knew English so helped us with a couple of things and the price is awesome for travelers on a budget.

Pros: Price, Friendly enough staff, Tasty food

Cons: Lack of AC

Need info, please.

When we visited, it was closed at 3+pm. Then we have noticed someone appeared and got some prepacked food. I run, since we had a second store closed at 3 on us. The owner were nice and let me get some cheap leftovers from the trays in the darkened room.
I forgot to get ANY info.
Could someone please post more reasonable details?

Good Food for Good Price

I visited this Loving Hut location in April 2018. It’s buffet-style, all you want to eat, for 60,000 dong ($3 usd). There is a huge rice cooker, a few soups, and lots of veggies, fake meats, and Vietnamese foods like spring rolls and other little things, all made vegan. Lots of locals were eating here and it’s a communal table system, which I thought was sweet. I really loved it and will definitely be again during my stay in Ha Long Bay.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Inexpensive

Cons: Nothing is translated into English

super lecker und günstig

Das Restaurant wirkte nicht sehr einladend, es war ein bisschen stickig, vor der Tür laute Baustellen und es wurde nur ein einziges Wort Englisch gesprochen: "vegan!". Softgetränke gab es keine, nur pflanzliche Milch - ich vermute es war gesüßte Sojamilch. Es gab ein umfangreiches Buffet, das zwar teilweise kalt, aber sehr sehr lecker und variationsreich war! Es gibt leider sehr viele unterirdische Restaurants in Halong, und davon nur wenige (mir bekannte) vegetarische/vegane. Es war hier für mich eine wahre Erleichterung mal wieder nach Herzenslust schlemmen zu können, ohne groß nachdenken zu müssen. Wir waren pappsatt und zufrieden am Ende! Und das für unschlagbare 60.000 VND pro Person!

Pros: alles vegan!

Cons: kein schönes Ambiente, kein Englisch
