Vegan schnitzel! - Edit

Worth it for the vegan schnitzel - the true Austrian experience! The cakes are very good too. It's only a 5-minute from the Westbahnhof train station so it's easy to access.

holy mother - Edit

This place by far has the best vegan food I have ever had. We had the vegan shrimp, schnitzel and carbonara. We had to stop during the shrimp starter to double check it wasn't real. Definitely the best meat substitutes I have ever had. My partner had said he will come back to Vienna solely for this food. Can't compliment it enough!

Pros: Amazing substitutes, Lovely staff

A bit disappointed - Edit

I've been going to Loving Hut for two years now and was almost always very satisfied. But last time I went made the decision easier to not go there anymore.
Let me tell you why: Not only does the very friendly staff take what feels like forever to come by to take up your order etc, but last time I went I ordered the same food I had a few days prior (vegan shrimp, and they were delicious) and they came out fried in old oil that made them taste awful.
They smelled disgusting, they tasted disgusting, you could even see that they weren't fried in decently fresh oil.
I am usually not someone who complains a lot about food. But I could only take one bite and immediately wanted to spit it out again. Needless to say I didn't finish. I tried another shrimp but same story.
The cauliflower entree didn't have ANY taste whatsoever either but I preferred it over the shrimp of old oily death.
I was just really surprised that a restaurant I have been going to for the last years suddenly was able to produce such awful food.

good and cheap fast food - Edit

Nice and cozy restaurant, lot of burger options and other main dishes. Everything is very cheap. Waitress forgot to bring our entree but the Texas burger was good. Starter (Peking duck rolls) came than after the main dish but was tasteless. No cards, only cash.

Pros: cheap , close to u6 stop

Cons: no cards

In love with the Mongolian barbecue dish - Edit

Cute place, good options. I tried a couple of items from their menu and they were ok, but once I tried the Mongolian barbecue dish, that was just fantastic! They also have really good cakes, like the double chocolate Oreo and the normal chocolate cake, which are usually topped with maple syrup.

Absolutely delicious - Edit

We came here twice because we liked it so much the first time. My omnivorious boyfriend loved it. We both took Asian inspired dishes and they tasted exactly as they should have. We also tried their hazelnut cake and their chocolate peanut cake, which was out of this world. Delicious!! I can highly recommend this place :)

Pros: delicious food and desserts, very friendly staff, nice garden and decoration

Cons: portions are kinda small

Steady, not amazing - Edit

We ate here on our first evening in Vienna, and it was... just ok, nothing more. I had a stir fry where the beansprouts tasted a bit like they were possibly a few days old, not that fresh, and my husband had a salad - where the leaves looked a bit old and past their best, too.

So, though service was friendly and quick, the food was not amazing. It wasn't terrible either, just average.

Pros: All vegan, Friendly service , Desserts were good

Cons: No alcohol , Food not that fresh

good, but not excellent - Edit

The restaurant has a nice garden inside and I really liked the fact that the waiter told us that tap water was available for free at a counter in the garden when we were about to order a (really expensive) bottle of water. I also tried the mango lassi which was really good. The best part of the meal was the ocean wings plate which was made of fried vegan shrimps. We also had the summer rolls which were a bit bland and two kinds of noodles which were quite similar to one another. The noodles and the vegetables were the same and only the condiments changed. They were okay, but I would not have them again. There was a good choice of desserts and we tried the double chocolate Oreo cake and the coconut cake. Both of them were nice, but you can have better cakes somewhere else. The food is inexpensive and the staff very friendly. The menu is quite long and probably we should have asked the waiter for suggestions on what to try. All in all, I would recommend it if you are in the neighbourhood and you don't want to spend too much, but it would not be my first choice in Vienna if I had more time to go to other places.

Delicious - Edit

Very sympathetic little veggie and vegan restaurant between 7. and 15. Bezirk, which serves no alcohol.Everything was fresh and tasty, especially the bamboo curry thing, and the service friendly.The soup (very good miso soup) was served after the main, but it did disturb us, because it tasted so good. Made with love.

Pros: fresh and tasty food, friendly, not expensive

Cons: not very central

Ask for recommendations - Edit

I decided to try the loving hut in Vienna, and I was happy. I asked the waiter for help deciding and I was really happy with the result. The prices are very reasonable, water comes with the meal. I had a Monfoli inspired bbq dish with fake beef. While the beef was a bit much for me as I'm not used to eating dishes like that (though I am always curious by fake meat, so I like to try it sometimes) it was very good. The seating arrangement was nice. It wasn't particularly weird like many of the reviews said. I will definetely be coming again.

Pros: Location, Open late on most evenings, good variety eastern and western dishes

Cons: other reviews call it weird

Master Ching Hai is a vegan genius - Edit

The boyfriend and I decided to have dinner out and opted for Loving Hut as it is completely vegan and has gluten-free options. This Loving Hut has a strikingly odd atmosphere, which you'll understand when you arrive. The meals were delicious and filling, ranging from noodle dishes to burgers. The young waiter was timid, but makes an incredible caramel latte which followed the meal perfectly. Just be wary of the opening times before arrival as they are split in between the afternoon and evening.

Pros: Gluten-free options, moderate sized meals.

Cons: None.

my first choice when i want to eat out - Edit

I always enjoy eating at Loving Hut Neubaugürtel.
The location is not pretty but well connected to subway and tram lines and close to Westbahnhof, a big railway station.
There are some outdoor tables in a small back yard. Really cozy. Inside is a little less cozy but still ok. Nice staff. Great menu. Yummy burgers, rolls, rice, noodles, vegetables, fake meat. Homemade lemonades. They also have a fridge with vegan basics for sale. Unfortunately the opening hours are pretty limited. So, if you want to go there first consult the web site. Also, the garden is only open in summer. Prices are ok, I think. Only thing I disliked was the vegan döner. Costs 5 € something but only a few tiny bits of veggie meat inside the bread.

Pros: good food, sensational burgers, nice little garden (in summer), rich menu

Cons: restrictive opening hours, restaurant not as nice as garden, some dishes offer poor value for money

A favorite in Vienna. - Edit

The restaurant is small and simple, light, friendly, and easy to find. The waiter is a bit weird, but in a good way, he is a very friendly and polite person that makes your meal even more enjoyable. Out back there is a very peacefull little garden with ivy and a fountain, which easily leads you to forget that you are in the midlle of a metropolis. The burgers are tasty, I specifically recomend the Texas BBQ, and the vegan Spaghetti Carbonara are recommendable, or the vegan Wiener Schitzel. What is somehow sad however is that many of the main dishes are simpy asian, lacking creativity. The most amazing thing about this establishment, however, is their deserts. I have never tried a piece of any of ther cake and not wanted to eat all of it. The choices allways vary, but If they offer the vegan cheescake, try it, it is the most amazing thing on planet earth! When Kate Moss said "Nothing ever tastes as good as skinny feels", she clearly hasn't tried this cake! They are also pet friendly, so feel free to bring your pets along. The bigest problem with this restaurant is that it only has very limited opening hours, so it is often very full. Also, as in all loving huts, you have a typical cult aura about it, although definitely not as much as others. Anyways, CHEESCAKE!

Pros: Great food and amazing deserts., Beautiful garden., Cheap prices.

Cons: A bit of a cult atmosphere., Short opening hours.

Only few restrictions - Edit

Highly recommended venue!
Closely located to the Westbahnhof Loving Hut Neubaugürtel is a lovely place offering quite a lot very tasty vegan dishes. This is a kind of restaurant you should take all of those to who claim that there are no tasty vegan dishes. If they won't be disabused here, there is only a small chance they would be elsewhere.
I have eaten three main dishes until now and all of them were great. In regard to the predecessor reviewers: This awesomeness may not apply to all their main dishes, but as far as I am concerned so far, it does. Moreover, the cappuccino is excellent! Loving Hut is almost the only place I drink cappuccino instead of black coffee. The range of cakes is notable. (Whole) Cakes can also be ordered in advance.
There are some downsides though. The cakes (at least some of them) seem a little bit too sticky and too sweet. Now and then they are overchallenged by the press of guests (which leads to waiting times aso.). The interior could be nicer. The toilet too. Probably the thing that I dislike most are the pseudo cult-like flyers lying out; as soon as there is an esoteric touch somewhere I start to dislike it.
The opening times are a bit tricky, be aware of that.
Vegan dog and cat food is also being provided.

Pros: delcious food, helpful staff, cakes all over the place

Cons: waiting times, distinct opening times, esoteric touch

I wish I could say it’s mediocre - Edit

Unfortunately the food was bland. My “Döner Kebab” had nothing to do with one, it even contained broccoli and peas. There are many better options around.

Pros: smoke free beer garden

Cons: waiting time, food

Really great cake! - Edit

The restaurant in and of itself was wonderful. There was nice indoor seating but we sat outside in the beautiful garden. We ate loads of good food! In total we ate miso soup, veggie wrap rolls, another type of roll, burgers and cake. Everything was delicious. I was very satisfied with my choice of the sunshine burger. The accompanying fries though were nothing special though. For desert I ate the vanilla fruit cake. The icing was very light and the cake was full of flavor. It was so good that I ordered a slice of chocolate cake for later. That too was delicious! I would recommend this Loving Hut for anyone looking for great food served in a pleasant atmosphere.

loved it - Edit


I have been here multiple times I cannot say one entree is better than the other because I have enjoyed them all. I've tried such as their kung pao, variety of burgers and mongolian bbq. Even my most carnivorous of friends enjoy the menu that shows how important sauces and cooking skills are making something like tofu or wheat germ taste like true kung pao, real burger or other meat-infused food.

I recommend giving it a try, the interior is somewhat small, but the summer garden is beautiful. They also offer a vegan cheesecake ( not every day) which is almost too good to believe that it is vegan at all.

Mixed feelings ... - Edit

Some of the food is good, some is not
I like their big variety of vegan cakes
The salad and juice bar doesn't look really good, so I wouldn't order anything of it.

Mostly you have to wait just too long.

Pros: vegan cakes, friendly staff

Cons: waiting time

Won't go there again - Edit

I would not go there again, the next time I'm in Vienna I'll visit the Loving Hut Favoritenstraße again.

The burger are in Favoritenstraße thouand times better, they were very greasy in Neubaugürtel and there was a strange smell in the whole restaurant. At first I did'nt want to stay because of the strange smell but then we realised that there is a garden on the back and it was a little bit nicer than inside (and the strange smell wasn't as bad).

There was only one waiter and so we had to wait very long for everything.

We hab to pay extra € 0,50 for cheese for the burger. And the cheese wasn't good.
I'll definately won't go there again.

Cons: strange smell, had to wait very long, greasy burger (even the bun was greasy)

ich liebe sekten - Edit

ich liebe sekten und sektenarbeit. ich glaube, andere leute gehen in den zoo, wenn sie exotisches, ihrer welt fremdes, sehen wollen, ich bin veganerin, also geh ich zu den supreme mastertypen. kung pao und dieses bbq-zeug sind fantastisch, echt sehr lecker. der cafe mit dem karamellsirup ist auch toll. die einrichtung is sehr ikea und teilweise auch schon ziemlich dreckig, aber der fernseher mit den delfinen drin und der dezenten zurechtweisung macht alles wieder gut. der gastgarten ist schön, aber nix für leute die grösser sind als ca 170cm, obwohl, im sitzen eigentlich eh egal.

Pros: gutes essen, teilweise billig, supreme master tv

Mixed Feelings - Edit

I was a huge fan of the food here, until they started to use one ingredient in almost all dishes. It tastes a little bit like burned plastic, as if a plastic wrap was heated with the food.

It started with two dishes (Mongolian Barbecue and Cinnamon Buns) and last time it was almost everywhere. It's not only me that get's the strange taste! It's not happening at Loving Hut 10. district and when I told the waiter twice, he told me, the cook is furious since they only use highest quality ingredients. And he refused to taste it. Not the answer I was hoping for.

Without it, I would have loved to give 4 stars. The Ocean Wing Plate was great, burgers are very good (still) and the baked ice is the best dessert ever. Good thing is, most of it you get at the second Loving Hut, so try and compare.

Pros: Many dishes, Great desserts, Outdoor garden dining area

Cons: Strange taste in many dishes since 2012, Waiter can be a little stressed, It's part of a (harmless) sect

Yoyo 26 Jul 2013 - Maybe you can ask them to cook without wok hei? they probably have a super power wok. wok hei is not a food ingredient, it is a cooking method as far as know. maybe you don't like that smokey taste but i do, not all the Chinese restaurant in overseas can make wok hei,i love it especially in noodle dishes and fried rice. I googled "wok hei" : To impart wok hei, the food must be cooked in a seasoned wok over a high flame while being stirred and tossed quickly.[2] For this reason it requires cooking over an open flame rather than an electric stove. In practical terms, the flavour imparted by chemical compounds results from caramelization, Maillard reactions, and the partial combustion of oil that come from charring and searing of the food at very high heat in excess of 200 °C (392 °F).[8] Aside from flavour, there is also the texture of the cooked items and smell involved that describes wok hei.

Morgenstern72 26 Jul 2013 - Maybe. But since the taste was first in sweets I don't think that's the reason.

Excellent - Edit

I ate here with my girlfriend twice and there was not a single disappointment. I don't understand what some previous reviewers had against the burgers. Mine were really excellent. I especially recommend the spicy burger.
Make sure you try the "fried icecream" and one of the protein shakes!

Pros: excellent food, friendly
