All the food was great, everyone was kind

I ordered enough for 3 people for just myself. Everything was great. Soup was a little spicy, but still good, It was the coconut curry, i ended up dipping some of my chilli fries in it too!

Waitress was great, the younger staff members very kind as well.

Been stopping at this place for years when traveling from NJ to Columbus/Dayton OH area. Everyone there is kind like family. Its a really nice place to eat for the whole family too.

All the food is fantastic and I really love being able to go to an all vegan restaurant. There’s a lot of variety in the dishes you can order which I also appreciate

Pros: best strawberry shortcake ever, nice staff

Cons: may be related to a cult, interior design is rather bland

Excellent Food!

There are lots of vegan options. The carrot cake is mind-blowing. It is a bit pricey, but so is everywhere else.

Some of the best vegan food I’ve ever had

This place is amazing! They have the best vegan fettuccine Alfredo I’ve ever had, as well as some great Asian inspired food. They also have several gluten free options and their aloe lemonade is great. #Veganuary

Pros: All vegan, Gluten free options, Offers dine in, carry out, and delivery

Wonderful vegan food

I ordered the portabella steak with mashed potatoes and asparagus and it was soooo good. Probably the best vegan comfort food I’ve had in Columbus so far other than at lifestyle cafe. They deserve a better location for the quality of their food for sure. Overall great experience and delish food.

Always a hit!

I've been here several times with different people and everyone has loved it. Everything is on point, which can be tricky with such a wide and varying menu. The General Tso' Tofu is to die for. I wish I ate here more, but it's a bit of a drive for anyone on the North side.

Couldn’t tell

My partner and I are new to clean eating. She was craving Chinese or steak. I wanted general Tso and she got the pepper steak and rice! They both were amazing. The lady was very nice and cheerful. We’ve been back multiple times since our first visit. It’s always pleasant

Pros: Time frame, Taste

Asian fusion

Yummy, but probably not authentic. Got the tso's tofu, golden nuggets, and thai iced tea. Also not too expensive

Great Group & Party Spot!

Loving Hut is one of the longest running vegan restaurants in Central Ohio! Columbus Veg Community (CVC) members have held large meetings and birthday parties for as many years as we’ve been here because of the warm, loving environment, and because there is something on the menu for everyone (and it’s all 100% vegan)! Whether you are looking for American, Asian, Gluten-Free, Raw, or just want a decadent dessert you and your friends will be sure to love anything you order. In addition to their normal menu they offer rotating specials as well!

Pros: Something for Everyone!, Spacious & Warm- Perfect for Large Groups!, Huge Parking Lot

So many options!

I was amazed at how many items were on their menu! There is a large mixture of all different types of food, from burgers to Thai curry. Definitely worth checking out for anyone who’s vegan or is interested in vegan dishes.

Pros: Clearly-labeled menu , Many options

Clean & Cute Vegan Franchise Restaurant

I've been to this particular Loving Hut location about six times. I always experience friendly service and good food. I have a special place in my heart for Loving Hut. It was one of the first all vegan restaurants I ate at in California, sometime in 2012. Even though they use processed vegan meats and cheeses, I enjoy the food, environment, and service enough to make the trip to Reynoldsburg. The five stars are for positive consistancy and a genuine likeness for the restaurant and it's mission. Some of my favorite items are the taco salad, spicy "save chick'n" wrap, potato and kale soup, potstickers, chili fries, the strawberry shortcake and Thai iced tea.

Pros: Thai iced tea, Many vegan themed books to read while there, Good prices

Not a fan

I have never liked Loving Hut... Most of the food can easily be made at home with recognizable ingredients such as Tofurkey etc. If you need something convenient and cheap it’s a good choice, but otherwise I’m not crazy about it.
