Good food but expensive - Edit

Very friendly crew and the food was tasty and healthy. I do think it was expensive. Especially the deserts and the kaaskroketten. We paid €12 and only received two small kaaskroketten. They were very tasteful though. I wish it was cheaper so I could go there more often. It's also strange that you can't pay by card, just cash.

Pros: Good food

Cons: Too expensive.

Amazing - Edit

This restaurant is very small but amazing. The staff is super friendly and the food is great. We had the burger and noodles with veggied, both were delicious!

Nice but a few downsides - Edit

I've been to a few other loving huts around Europe and though this is nice, I feel it falls short in comparison to some of the others I've been to. Having a 100% vegan menu is of course amazing! however the menu itself feels a bit pricey for what is presented. However credit where it's due, the food is still great and the staff are exceptionally friendly!

Pros: 100% bio and vegan

Cons: Woked Noodles dish is quite oily/greasy!

Must-go in Leuven - Edit

The food is always super fresh, looks gorgeous and tastes heavenly! Several non-vegetarians I've taken to this place have said that the burger was the best they ever had -- not just best veggie burger, but best burger, full stop. The food is made using seasonal organic produce, so the menu varies between seasons.
Worth noting is also the overwhelming friendliness of the staff (very unusual for Belgium!). They'll even happily tell you their recipes.
My favourites include the cashew balls and the delicious filled sea-shell pasta, and of course the burgers. Give the aryurveda drinks a try, too, they're more than just lemonades.

Pros: wonderful food, amazing staff, 100% vegan and organic

Cons: the seating is a little cramped

Outstanding - Edit

Absolutely delicious, one of the best vegan places I have ever been to. I tasted almost everything! DO eat the tiramisu for dessert!!! I was skeptical about the shrimp, but it was so delicious even our omnivore friends loved it!

Pros: absolutely delicious, very cosy place, close to downtown

Very recommandable - Edit

We've been here already a couple of times, we even drive 60 kilometers just to eat there! (Also because there are no vegan restaurants where we live.) It's a very small place, but so far we always had seats except for one saturday when it was very crowded. They have a regular menu and variable specials. The food is always very tasty, but the portions could be a bit bigger. Especially for good eaters like us ;-) Main courses cost around 14 euros. Our personal favourites on the menu are 'Kung Bao'(rice with stir-fryed vegetables, cashews and tofu) and the stir-fryed noodles with vegetables and vegan strips. The soup is always tasty as well and they have delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies and other desserts. I noticed that they recently changed their basmati rice to wholegrain rice, which I like. The only thing we aren't so eager about, is the fact that nearly all of their starters are fried (which is not so healthy), and some of the things in their main dishes too. They sell some vegan cheese and vegan cat/dog food in the restaurant. The waitress is a very friendly girl.

Pros: Very tasty food, Cosy place, Very friendly staff

Cons: Fried food

Small but Awesome! - Edit

I've visited this restaurant twice on trips to Leuven. Both times it was great. So nice to have a completely vegan restaurant option!

The staff were super friendly, and the food was served quickly. Kung Bao was delicious, burger could have almost fooled my omni husband, and the cake and ice cream were an excellent treat!

Both times we spent around 35 euros for mains, desserts and drinks, which is really reasonable. Highly recommended- we'll be back.

Pros: Vegan, Friendly Staff, Clean and Cosy

Makes not only the cows happy! - Edit

This is a tiny vegan restaurant in the centre of town. They have a small menu card, but it is frequently changed.
I think I tried already everything they serve, and have never been disapointed: unbelievable what flavours and tastes the cook can create with such simple ingredients. Amazing!
I am addicted ...

Pros: friendly staff, yummie, and yummie!

*** E X C E P T I O N A L *** - Edit

We recently had the exceptional luck of going to/passing through Leuven 3 times in the last month. And each time, we went to have dinner at The Loving Hut.

I really can't express myself properly here. The food in this restaurant is *** E X C E P T I O N A L *** . Yes, you read it correctly: it is amazing, marvelous, stunning, startling, breathtaking,...

If you are in the neighbourhood: stop by, order and enjoy.

Pros: Exceptionally excellent food, Real good value, Very friendly staff

Cons: None whatsoever

Small but fine - Edit

Loving hut Leuven is a small but nice place to eat. If you go at 18.00 hrs or so, a seat will be no problem, if you come later it might be full, so better go early.
The food is nice. Delicious soup and healthy main courses. Highly recommended

Best place EVER - Edit

I travelled to Leuven just to try this place. It was not a mistake.
Loving Hut is EXCELLENT in all aspects. Finally, a 100% VEGAN restaurant! Affordable and with DELICIOUS options.
Since it was not expensive, I stuffed myself trying a lot of vegan meals (well, they are all vegan =) ). They were all exquisite: you will me amazed at how a simple dish can taste here.
The staff is unbelievably friendly, and genuine vegans. The only "downside" is that they don't allow tips. I'd gladly overtip them any time =D

They also have some interesting books to read while you are there.

Keep it up guys!!

Pros: Cheap, Friendly, VEGAN!!

I'm loving it - Edit

The Loving Hut is the only vegan restaurant in Leuven. Although I'm not a vegan, I really like their dishes. The prices are very reasonable (Rice Noodles with fried veggie steak strips,cabbage and spring rolls for only 9 euro) I already tried 4 different dishes and I'm looking forward to discover the rest of the menu! The service is friendly and quick. My company was not vegetarian, but they really liked the tasty and light dishes. I recommend this restaurants for everybody, for vegetarians and for meat-eaters!

Pros: reasonable prices, friendly

very nice place, great addition to Leuven - Edit

very friendly and quick service. Food was very good and reasonably priced, except for the cake, which was 4 euro for a tiny piece.
Nice modern interior, and although you wouldn't think so from seeing the tiny entrance, the places are quite spacious. I don't like the stools though, those are very unconfortable (no back support).
It's great to have a full vegan place in Leuven! Will surely go there again.

Pros: good price, vegan, friendly & quick service

Cons: stools and no chairs
