First Review by Nickysr

Amazing food - Edit

I love the food here - I'm a big fan of mock meat and you can get all your old Chinese favourites (if you used to like non-vegan Chinese) like prawn crackers, chicken and sweetcorn soup, duck pancakes, sweet and sour chicken, sezchuan beef.... the food is always delicious and there's so much variety too.
The staff are very nice, service is prompt, and the atmosphere is nice too. Also desserts are delicious - cheesecake, choc cake, carrot cake...
Must try!! Good value too.

Pros: The food is soo good, Prompt service, Friendly staff

Great value buffet - Edit

I often go here for the lunch buffet which is all you can eat and very cheap for what you get. Nice Asian-style food choices, both vegetables and fake meat - downside for me is that they only have a couple of gluten-free options usually.

Pros: Great food, Low price

Cons: Not many GF options

Delicious take away - Edit

I often come here to get take away.

I love the food here, it's not the healthiest but really hits the spot when you're after a treat.

I often have the chicken burger which is delicious and crispy. The chocolate cake is great too.

The staff are friendly, it can be a bit disorganised when it's busy but they are always very apologetic.

Pros: huge menu, very close to tube station, good value for money

Cons: can be a bit slow when busy

My favourite not healthy food - Edit

I usually eat healthy food but this place is so good that I make an exception sometimes ;) Typical Chinese food: a lot of mock meat, soy sauce and fat. But it taste so good... The restaurant looks very kitschy (fake decorations, plastic flowers on the tables) but somehow it's still quite nice.

Very nice - Edit

Nice place with extensive vegan menu and great service. Big menu, dishes are quite small so you should get at least two things a person, which is still affordable. The food was pretty good, and it was on the table in no time. Would definately eat here again when in the area.

Pros: Lots of choice, Good service

Absolutely Amazing! - Edit

The menu is HUGE and all of it is vegan! It was actually really hard to pick something haha. The dumplings for starters were gorgeous. My pad thai was delicious and everyone else loved their meal too, and were very impressed by the vegan beef.
There's a few western style desserts too and the chocolate cake was amazing, pretty rich but I still managed the whole slice!
AND it's very affordable! For starters, mains and desserts and drinks for 5 people it was only £80! That's £16 per person and I was stuffed

Pros: Delicious Food, Huge Menu

Cons: Hard to pick!

Sizzle sizzle - Edit

Always awesome food at Loving Huts (if you like fake meats like I do). I had a sizzling fish dish which is quite entertaining when it arrives! And hey, not often that you get vegan fish that's actually good! Someone recommended the chocolate cake so I had that, and woah! that was the most generous portion of cake I've ever seen! Good stuff

Amazing - Edit

First time trying this place. Absolutely amazing. Had the spring roll and vegan duck to start. And then vegan beef and black bean for mains. Finished with vegan chocolate cake with ice cream. All AMAZING.

Terrible - Edit

Second time we've visited this restaurant and first time it wasn't that great but the novelty of being entirely vegan and being able to get Peking duck made us go back again. Second time was worse. It was all just gloopy and flavourless. We ordered a Sichuan dish because they are famously spicy. This was was probably the blandest of them all. Staff are well meaning but a bit useless and the lady in charge is useless and quite rude. Better Chinese food can be had at a non-vegan Chinese restaurants.

Pros: vegan

Cons: not good food!

highly disappointed - Edit

I'd give Loving Hut one star if Happy Cow allows reviewers to give one star. The food was HORRIBLE and extremely salty. This is by far the worst began place I ever been. Bad food. Bad service.

delicious! - Edit

Love love love this food - for a vegan it's amazing. Prawn crackers, stir fries, 'egg' fried rice and duck pancakes. Their seitan meat is delicious, as is their fish and chip meal. The desserts and drinks are also worth a try. Personal favourites include the duck pancakes, sesame toast and crispy chilli beef.

Only criticisms would be the slightly off-hand service and occasional strange videos - my first time there they showed abattoir footage, the second time was an oddly narrated footage of ducks, then of people walking their dog, then of monks praying. It's kinda funny actually

Pros: delicious food, close to transport links

Cons: closed on Mondays, service could be friendlier, bit pricey if like me you order too much all the t

Lovely - Edit

First off you walk in and it looks like every other nice, clean, Chinese restaurant! Except everything is vegan!
We went for set menu B and the food was so good! I'm not a great fan of imitation meat but this was very good!
Try the 'duck' pancakes!
Definitely worth the 50 minute journey from Brockley!

Pros: great service and staff

Still the best place for fake meat in London! - Edit

Lovin Hut took over Peking Place and we feared it would go downhill. Peking Place was always super clean and kind of "posh". They used to have huge selection of fake meat's including fish dishes that made some of us feel sick because they were so real!!
Lovin Hut installed one of their TV screens which constantly shows their tacky spiritual nonsense and supreme lady leader thankfully with the volume nice and low. The menu has reduced in size but the range still includes the wonderful set meal options and the exciting sizzling dishes that arrive at ones table threatening to scorch you just for looking too close! I think the duck is the best if only because it is one of the only dishes that we were told does not contain sugar! My last visit was initiated by my companion wanting to return to that "amazing" restaurant he had visited once before twelve years ago, he was satisfied and happy once again. It's not the cheapest option for fake meat dishes but if you want such food done to its best this is the place to go in London.

Pros: Great food, Ample portions (except for the rice), Friendly staff

Cons: Not cheap, Too much sugar.

tasty food - Edit

I enjoy the food here. I especially like the sizzling ginger and spring onion tofu and the 'egg' fried rice. The vanilla or chocolate smoothies are very nice too. I don't eat seitan but i've brought a couple of meat eaters here who have enjoyed the seitan based dishes and one who did not. The portions are a good size and it isn't expensive.

Pros: good portion size, tasty food, not expensive

Cons: the satay sauce here isn't good
