First Review by Radient Love

slow service - Edit

It was very slow service and we were the only other table there. We had to wait about 30-45minutes just to get the appetizers . The food was cooked in the wrong oil because everything was greasy . Their salad had too much garlic and their wings were awful. Better buying the gardein

Pros: everything's vegan

Cons: long wait, too much oil , too much garlic. not up to par

so many options!!! - Edit

In Orlando for Spring break, so glad we found this place. Don’t be worried about the exterior, a little run down but they clearly put their effort into the food. Spring rolls were best vegan version I have tried, golden rice was perfect, tried both types of dumplings, tasty! If you are town, take a drive over here, worth it!

Great Customer Service! - Edit

Second time in this restaurant; gotten better than the first! My mom and I came in between their break time hours because the door was unlocked, but they served us anyway—which was a great thing! Their food was delicious, even my non-vegan mom loves it! Will keep on coming again :)!

Pros: Delicious food, Great customer service

One of my best Go-To places - Edit

I have been going here for many years. My favorite is the Combo #3 with Brown Rice. It's delicious. This place is run by very nice folks, and is a great place to meet fellow vegans from around greater Orlando.

I used to park in back, but it's easier to park in the lot next door.

Pros: Tasty, Clean, Good prices

Cons: A little too much fake meat for my preferences, Can sometimes get crowded.

Great Food, Bad Service Experience - Edit

We have been coming to Loving Hut for awhile whenever we visit Orlando. The food is really good and I love that it is all vegan. Yesterday's visit soured my love for this place because of this one waitress . The issue was we were a party of 10 and arrived at 2:30. The place closes at 3. The owner came out and greeted us and said it was ok to still come and order food. The problem is Ariel was not in agreement and her negative attitude reflected it the whole time we were there. She was rude, complained about our being there and even refused to give us drinks we ordered until the owner came out and told her too. I honestly have never had an experience like this. When we left I attempted to talk to her again-I really tried to give her the benefit of the doubt. Her defense (if there really is one) is that while the owner agreed to serve us, Ariel felt we were taking advantage of the situation. I explained to Ariel that we were very appreciative of being served, we would be happy to assist in the clean-up and would also give a generous tip. None of that mattered to this bitter waitress. Sadly, I do not think we will go back.

decent food, lousy atmosphere - Edit

I tried the combo #1 which was pretty good. The mushroom tofu was made perfectly and the rice and summer rolls that came with it were flavorful. Also had the “loving basket” appetizer which was terrible, but it was deeply fried and I don’t care for overly greasy fried food. Very good prices. Unfortunately, the restaurant was very poorly maintained. The sign out front was broken, rusty, and faded in color. Overall, the food was very typical to what one would order at any Asian style restaurant.

Pros: good prices, tasty food, large selection

Cons: poorly maintained

Ocean Delights! - Edit

They're so good! I also love their rose cappuccino, and their flan~ They have a wonderful channel playing with inspiration and motivation for vegans. I love the mid century design, it's cute and eclectic. Their portions are fantastic, and the Asian food is definitely why you go here, not some of the 'american' options. But those are pretty tasty too. The ocean delights are so delicious, must try.

Pros: great prices, easy parking, seating

Cons: on 50, lots of traffic

still yummy!!! - Edit

I love that this is a completely vegan restaurant. It's not often that I have so many choices to pick from. It's still as delicious as it was years ago. I love stopping here when I'm in Orlando. It's a really easy drive from the airport. Please note that they don't do the buffet on Sunday anymore, but you can order off the amazing menu like all the other days.

best pho! - Edit

I usually order the food through Bite Squad, since we are a one car family. I've had the fried tofu, the spring rolls, the pho, and the lemongrass noodles. Omg. Everything is absolutely unbelievable. I am obsessed. I find myself craving it all the time. My omni boyfriend was also in love with ALL OF IT. So amazing to order Asian food without worrying about cross contamination. Tried the cheesecake for dessert, only thing I wasn't impressed with.

Pros: All vegan! Best pho in town! 🍜 Can also get delive

Cons: Wasn't impressed with dessert options.

I missed Loving Hut! - Edit

I must admit, although Loving Hut has some really great dishes, they also have others that are quite the opposite. I visited the Orlando location while on my honeymoon last year- we made a special detour just to get some lunch there right after we landed and picked up our rental car. The closest Loving Hut in Matawan, NJ had been shut down and replaced by a Philadelphia based vegan restaurant, plus I had been curious to try the different things on the Orlando menu.

I had the sushi delight to start, followed by the Loving Hut steak. It was not the tastiest version of "steak" I've ever tried but it was delicious for Loving Hut standards. Definitely in the winner column. I actually regret not making one more trip there before heading back home.

great place - Edit

I'm so happy to have found this place! I love Asian food and I'm just glad to have a new place that is 100% vegan and not have to worry about anything! I got bun hue which is a spicy noodle soup, it's pretty spicy. So if you like a level 4 out of 5 I would get it. Overall the service is great and the place is pretty easy to find.

Overall super yummy! - Edit

My husband and I stopped by here because we had just flown in and had to drive all the way to Sebring Florida. So we grabbed a dinner since it is nice to have an all vegan menu. We had a hard time picking the food since there were so many different dishes. We started with the Happy Half Moon wontons, which I would say were the best wontons I had in a very long time (vegan or otherwise)

For the main dishes we got the King Spice Cha Cha and Lemongrass Noodles. We loved both dishes and we stuffed by the end of the dinner. We also grabbed the avocado shake and rose cappuccino. I found the avocado shake a little light on flavor, and the rose cappuccino was a little too sweet. But overall everything we yummy.

I would love to come back. The service was slow but our server was super sweet and loved talking to the customers.

Pros: Great food, Excellent servers

Cons: Slow service, Annoying Ching Hai videos playing

Disappointed - Edit

Two years ago I had a great experience with them.It turned to a totally disappointment when I went back last month.The menu has been changed. The pho came out super fast with a layer of oil on top, very greasy( by deep fried onion in it). Summer rolls were cold and not fresh made; Dumplings were warmed up unevenly with some tough edge(probably by using a microwave).Asked green tea but came out with a thick mocha powder drink, water was too hot and super bitter! I ended up walking out with a half full stomach.

Pros: Very friendly staff with pretty smile, Easy parking

I've been to lots of different Loving Huts, and I just LOVE them! And I love that there is one in Orlando, since I live here :) They've got a great selection and really yummy desserts. It's nice to be able to order anything from the menu and not worry if it's vegan or not.

Pros: Great food, Friendly service

Excellent! - Edit

When we saw it from the outside we thought it looked small and it would not have many choices, but we were so wrong!

The menu is extensive and everything we ordered was amazing! I had the chocolate cake for dessert, it came with some ice-cream and it was delicious.

Everything was great, service was nice and timely, and the place was clean. We will definitely go again.

Pros: many choices, good food, good service

Tasty Asian grub - Edit

Loving Huts can be rather hit or miss, so it's always an adventure to try one that's new to us. The emphasis on fake meats make it something the Omnivore likes, so we popped in on our way back from failing to see a rocket launch.

The service was a bit odd. We were quickly seated, but then left to study the menu for a little too long. I was the more hungry, so we shared a big platter of starters, and I had a bowl of spicy soup in addition.

The starters were your standard battered and deep-fried fare. Not at all good for you, but very satisfying. The Omnivore pronounced themselves pleased, despite the green beans (which I ate). The soup was fabulous, deep rich and spicy, most closely resembling the vegan Assam Fish I had in Kuala Lumpur last year. And the bowl was deceptive. I couldn't finish it because there was so much. I'd say this is one of the good Loving Huts in terms of the food.

As we were paying and preparing to leave, the waiter felt it important to tell us that MH370 had been taken by the people who live inside the hollow earth and that no-one had died.

Pros: tasty food, huge portions

Cons: interesting service
