I LOVE The Loving Hut! - Edit

I went to this restaurant with my mom, sister, and dog. Our dog was allowed because we sat out on the patio. The food was amazing. Also the portions were pretty big so I had enough left over for dinner. My mom and sister are not vegans or vegetarians and even they loved it. The waitress also brought my dog some water, brown rice, and soy ham! She loved it too!

Always a good staple - Edit

You'll never get something bad at this Loving Hut, but neither will it be spectacular. They've got a large menu and most of it is pretty good. The atmosphere can sometimes be a little uncomfortable, though.

favorite by far - Edit

Where do I begin. .the staff is great, helpful when choosing something you've never tried. the food is delicious, they have light dishes, burgers, wraps and plates that'll leave you the right kind of satisfied- without that full bloated feeling we usually run into with most carnivorous food. this is my favorite place to visit when I'm hungover, on rainy days and the latter, when I'm looking for somewhere affordable to eat with friends or family, on any occasion really.. I know the loving hut is always first on my list. and last but not least, I'll always recommend their deserts and drinks.

Pros: affordable vegan food, food actually has flavor, friendly/helpful service

Cons: only 1 bathroom, to go orders are usually given in smaller portions

Fried Tofu is one ofmy favorite things - Edit

Great little fast and friendly spot for a quick casual bite. Of course totally vegan and delicious.

A few highlights on the menu:
Crispy rolls- crispy and filling, but not heavy or greasy
Golden Noodle soup - flavorful broth love the mushrooms
Golden Tofu - Fried tofu with a dipping sauce what is not to love
Delight Veggie - the sauce was flavorful however a little salty for me but it tasted really good.
Pad Thai - my daughter loves their pad Thai - I like it but not as much as other places that we frequent.

Oh and Dessert happens too - they have cheesecake Oreo is delish!

Pros: Casual, Quick & Friendly

Cons: very strip mall

Great Service - Edit

My wife and daughter found this place and were raving about it so I had to check it out myself. I tried their BBQ plate which comes with on a bed of rice noodles and veggies. This is my favorite dish here! The spring rolls are great too. My wife is a huge fan of their BLT. The service has been great during every visit. Very friendly staff. If you're in the area, check them out!

Pros: Great Food, Great Value, Friendly Staff

The staff is wonderful and so is the food! - Edit

We come here at least once a week and eat the BLT! At lot of the items are too "meaty" for me to eat all of the time, but we have found our dew favorites! We love the BLT, Pho, and Pad Thai. I love the Rose lemonade and the pink Delight to drink!

Decent Food - Edit

This place is good if you like soy products but they have limited raw options. Most dishes come with tofu and soy protein. Not my style, but it works when I'm in the area.

Pros: Cheap, Fast Service

Cons: Lacking Raw Options

love Loving Hut - Edit

Small, casual cafe feel. Waiters are very nice and service is quick. The food is always delicious. My favorites are the Jackfruit salad, Pho, and Pad Thai. Food isn't greasy or salty. You'll enjoy it and you'll feel great after you eat :)
Their desserts are so good! They could seriously exclusively sell desserts only and they'd be successful! We love their cheesecakes- the best around!

Great Value - Edit

This was a great little place I ate at in orange county when I was on a business trip. The food was pretty good at its valued price. I enjoyed their chow main dish with there Oreo cheese cake for dessert. I would recommend to any one eating here to eat outside where there is better ambiance and better air circulation. The thing I liked the most about this business though was the ownership. There was excellent service and the owners were people I would love to get to know better.

Pros: Friendly Staff, Good Value, Large portions

Cons: spenmin. $10 to use credit card

Good food - Edit

Service was very friendly and helpful. Food was good. Only wish they had more items with tofu or tempeh instedead of imitation meat, since i don't like the faux meat much. They will probably substitute, so i'll try coming up with my own combination next time. The crispy spring rolls with dipping sauce were very yummy!

Loving Hut - Edit

Excellent as always at every location. I had the tangy orange with rice and a strawberry shake. A bit pricey but worth it.

Pros: Friendly staff

Pretty fantastic! - Edit

This Loving Hut is very tiny (I took my food to go) and seating is certainly limited. Also, if you're not ordering $10 worth of food you had better bring some cash, because they don't accepted credit cards unless you spend $10. Now, the food... So many options on the western side of the menu! Many burgers and sandwiches just made my mouth water. I love fake Philly sandwiches so I went with theirs...wow was it tasty! The fake meat almost scared me initially because it looked real to me - mind you I haven't eaten meat since I was age 4. With all of that said however, I honestly thought that was among the best Philly sandwiches I've ever had thus far and I highly recommend it.

Loving Hut, Orange - Edit

I had a wonderful experience here. Despite the fact that the place was packed, service was very quick and friendly.
My friend, who is non-veg, was very impressed with the spring rolls because they tasted like shrimp. We ordered that appetizer, 2 entrees and shared a chocolate "cheesecake" dessert that was to die for. The bill only came out to $24 for all of it, and my friend is rethinking the myths of the vegan diet as he came out feeling full and later told me he wanted to go back. The selection provides a wide variety (more than what their website menu shows) and the customers range from groups of friends to couples to whole families. There was a cheerful atmosphere and I would definitely go back when I'm in the area.

Pros: quick service, friendly, cheap

It is good. - Edit

I've had better food at the Loving Hut in Upland. Each Loving Hut has a similar menu but the food differs in taste and cooking style. Didn't care for the chow mein or their soups. The crispy rolls are good, broccoli and tofu is good but lacks some flavor. The classic burger is REALLY good and the fries are addicting! Also they started offering a pretty good vegan flan that they make there! Another favorite of mine there are the banana walnut muffins! The deserts are all homemade, except they recently started carrying some pretty delicious sorbets!

Word on the street is that the menu will be expanding in the future! So look out!

Pros: location, good portions, friendly staff

Cons: small
