First Review by ItalianChick

Surprising and good - Edit

I chose fried spring rolls and an assortment of makis / sushis. Everything was delicious, the makis were very fresh and well prepared, a real pleasure !
Later, I enjoyed the barbecue pizza which is also very nice and original.
The menu is in English and there is even an photo album, which is really practical!

Small inconvenience, the restaurant closes at 8 pm and is very small. I think it's nicer to take the food away than to eat in the restaurant, which is a bit noisy and not that comfortable.

Pros: Huge choice, Menu with pictures, Nice staff

Cons: Everything yells fast food in this restaurant, Closes early

Tasty food and cute staff - Edit

The elderly Asian couple that served us was very sweet and helpful. There is an English menu and a book with pics of every dish.
The food is very tasty and fresh.
Not much room to sit, but the food makes up for this.

freshly made, tasty - Edit

I came there on a Saturday afternoon as my first choice (aktivisten kafe) turned out to be closed.
I was a bit surprised that it was no buffet as they had it at loving hut in Ljubljana (I had assumed that was part of the concept), but the menu had so many dishes to chose from, so I didn't mind. I decided to try the "chef's special burger" with additional French fries, for which I payed in total 130NOK. Even though the burger was not spicy as it said in he description, it was absolutely tasty and i could tell that everything was made from fresh ingredients.
the service was very nice and friendly!
I can recommend it.

Pros: many vegan dishes to choose from, fresh, tasty,

Lovely casual place - Edit

The wonton soup is to die for! They have a nice range of cakes too, the chocolate cake and carrot cake are particularly good.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Very reasonable priced

Vegan Fast Food - Edit

A great little takeaway with the option to sit in, they also have a copy of the menu in vegan. Can highly recommend the spring rolls and the burger!

They also deliver around Oslo but we were warned that delivery can be slow.

Only issue is that they have a poster on the wall that makes some very questionable claims about the benefits of being vegan, and I am vegan myself!

Pros: Delivery Service, Friendly staff, Comfort food

Cons: Expensive

delicious and friendly - Edit

We had 2 delicious meals here on our recent trip to Oslo and delightful service from the lovely couple who run it. Tofu dishes, noodles, vegetables and soup were all excellent. Its just a simple cafe with some counters to sit at but don't let this put you off.

Pros: food, service

wow! what a treat. go get some!! - Edit

Wonderful people. So so friendly. The food was just fabulous. I had the No 1 rice paper rolls; 17b Pad Thai and some 'prawn' crackers. It was so delicious. I couldn't manage it all so brought the rest back to my hotel for later!! Definitely worth finding on the lovely quiet back street. Loved it!!

Pros: very friendly couple, amazing fresh cooked food , very good prices for Norway

casual - Edit

We came for dinner on the night before National Day and were grateful that some place was open. The menu was large with pictures and in English which was helpful as the staff did not speak English although they were very friendly. There's limited seating, but we sat at a counter bar. Definitely a takeaway place. We ordered a wonton soup, a stir fry and a burger with fries. Other than being a little salty, it was good.

Pros: all vegan, friendly staff

Housemade Tofu For Me..For You - Edit

This is a little restaurant with limited seating....so it was quite cozy. Since I didn't have many handy Norwegian language skills going for me..I was happy to see most of the menu was in English as well. There was a language barrier to a degree, but the waitress was super nice and completely helpful. Their tofu is organic and housemade. It was pretty darn excellent! I've been to a couple of these Loving Hut restaurants and must say this is the best one I've ever visited. I stuffed my face and then some. Near the end of our meal another waitress came out, who spoke fairly good english, and had a lot of questions for us about traveling and farmers markets..etc. Was an overall fun experience. Had a surreal bonus of two females having a friendly wrestle match near the front door. One wanted to pay and the other was refusing I suppose. My companion especially liked that part..hah.

Pros: Housemade tofu, fresh vegetables

Cons: A little pricey

Killer Asian food. - Edit

I ate at their other Oslo location last night and was impressed. The menu is larger here and available in English. I had #31 which is Eggplant and Tofu. So tasty.

Pros: All vegan., English menu., Delicious!

Cons: Oslo prices., No alcohol.

Delicious fast food - Edit

The place is just like a typical "kebab shop" in Oslo, with a counter and some bar chairs along two walls. The staff was a really nice vietnamese man and another woman in the kitchen. We were craving fast food so we went with the small burger, the BBQ pizza and a kebab.

They had put broccoli in the kebab which was a nice touch. On the pizza they had artichokes and olives and the cheese tasted very good though the consistency was a bit "gluey". The burger patty tasted not so "burgery", but rather exotic. It came with lettuce and tomato, nothing special.

The food was really nice and with interesting spices, next time I definitely want to try out some of the noodle soups and fried rice dishes, as I am sure they would be even more delicious. They also have vegan sushi which I haven't tried yet. The menu is large and comes with pictures which is really good for reference. Only thing I would like is if they could get a bigger place and have more of a restaurant setting.

Pros: Good value for money, Big menu, Friendly staff

Cons: Place feels like a fast food joint

extensive menu - Edit

We ate here having left the queue for the vegan Christmas market which was too long. I had the tofu whilst my partner had the burger. Both were tasty. There is limited seating. They had a book that contained photos of each dish which was handy as I don't speak any Norwegian.

Tasty food for good price - Edit

This is a very small vegan cafe with take away option.
We took 2 big burgers with fried potato, noodles with seitan and ice cream. Everything was tasty!
It's better to say staff the number of dish in menu (the all dishes are numbered) to make it clear what you want.

Pros: big portions, tasty food, good price

Boring substitutes of meat - Edit

I can't stand a vegan restaurant when the names on the menu are like "vegan chicken", "vegan beef", "vegan pork", "vegan fish"... Vegan food is beautiful and tasty, I don't like to have anything that resembles a meaty dish.
Since I was already there, and it's a bit difficult to find vegan food at oslo, I had a dish with tofu, wich was ok, but not that good.

Pros: friendly staff, all vegan

Cons: fake meat on almost every dish

MikeLXXXVIII 04 Aug 2015 - It would be better if you gave an honest review that was more based on your satisfaction with the meal than your views on names used for the food. Much more constructive.
