BEST VEGAN PLACE IN TAMPA BAY AREA - Edit

Me and my girlfriend arrived here with nothing but excitement as we placed our to-go order. We ordered the BBQ and spicy wings with two different soups, the sweet and sour vegan chicken and brown rice, asparagus steak, and the philly sub along with two smoothies. Every single thing was absolutely amazing. This huge order took 15-20 minutes which is way faster than we thought. Very friendly the main guy even brought us out the smoothies in the rain. We bought some soy jerky and fruit snacks while we were waiting. This place is to die for and we will be back! Everyone check this place out if you want a huge selection of delicious vegan meals!

Pros: Super friendly, Peaceful, Delicious food and Fast service

Beautiful Place - Edit

The food was delicious. The seitan was so chicken-like that I actually got sick after eating it... lol. The owners/employees were very friendly. Loved the vegan posters around the restaraunt.

Pros: Everything's vegan!!!, Delicious , Fairly Priced

Loving Hut - Edit

If I could give more stars, I would. This place is utterly delicious. Everything is vegan, and everything is spectacular (that we've tried, anyway). Prices pretty good. Some of the best vegan food anywhere. And they have a buffet -- is it once a month?

Pros: delicious, all vegan

Can’t believe it’s vegan! - Edit

The food at this restaurant is so amazing that my non-vegan friends couldn’t even tell that the spicy wings were mock meat! 10/10 would recommend to everyone and non-vegans to try. Don’t be afraid of how the actual restaurant looks on the outside since they’re just starting out..but the service there is absolutely amazing :)

Philly and Fries - Edit

This was my shot at a “remind me meal” - remind me of the stuff I used to eat. It was my first time there, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I ordered the Philly and it was decent. I would probably get it again, but it’s not on my must have list. The fries were nothing to write home about and were given to me cold. They had no issue replacing them when I alerted them to the issue. Overall experience was pleasant. Nice option for the USF area.

Pros: Costs

Cons: Cold fold

Amazing Food - Edit

Forget about the location and appearance of this place. Just ignore it. Of all the Vegan eateries I have been to, Loving Hut has the most extensive menu. All menu items are vegan as well. The portions are just right, and the food tastes great.

Pros: all vegan, big menu

Amazing - Edit

I love their faux buffalo chicken sandwich. Probably the best I've ever had. They have so many options and the staff is so kind. I highly recommend you check this place out. Even if you're not vegan the loving hut has options for everyone and amazing faux meat items.

Pros: Yummy food

great food sketchy location - Edit

Delicious food! Not as clean as I would like inside. Bad neighborhood outside. Nice people. Uncomfortable booths. No knives? It would help me a lot if the calories/ specific ingredients were listed as I am watching my caloric intake. Hard to navigate a diet plan. I am watching my calories.

Updated from previous review on 2017-11-23

Pros: vegan! , Nice people, Delicious

Cons: could be cleaner in my opinion , neighborhood is campy, calories not listed hard to navigate a diet

Food is amazing!!! - Edit

The food is overall very impressive, all of the mock meat looks incredibly real. Seriously could have tricked my non vegan friends. The food is very tasty. The atmosphere of the place isn't very appealing, strongly recommend doing take out.

Food is great, service is poor - Edit

The large number of options is excellent, and the food was well made. We had the Pad Thai, Singapore Noodle, Noble Philly Sub, Glorious Thai Curry, and and I believe a mock beef dish. All we very enjoyable, with generous portions and we'll priced. Cookies aren't the best though. Atmosphere in the restaurant is not very appealing, and is quite dated. Server was very poor, and didn't know how to operate the credit machine so we were forced to pay in cash to much frustration. The cooks seemed very nice but our particular waitress was unattentive and unhelpful. I will return to loving hut, but not this location.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Low cost, Buffet

Cons: Service was poor, Restaurant is dated and decor is unattractive

first vegan restaurant experience - Edit

A couple years ago, this was the first vegan restaurant I explored after going vegan. What a wonderful first experience for me! The food was wonderful and the service was great. Never ever disappointing!

Good asian dishes, everything else stay away - Edit

The singapore noodles were delicious. The wings were awful, couldn't even enjoy 1. And the golden patty with fries was awful as well. The patty was soft and didn't come with vegan cheese like the menu said. The service was incredibly slow as well. The prices were cheap and since there are so few vegan options in the area it was ok, but wouldn't want to go back.

Vegan-tastic! - Edit

It's nice to be able to sit down at a 100% vegan restaurant. No scouring the ingredients ... just being able to order *anything* off of the menu ... awesome! I had the raw vegetable sushi with a strawberry smoothie. The service was great and I felt so good after eating all of my veggies that I didn't even feel a little bit guilty about taking a slice of raw vegan strawberry "cheesecake" with me to go :)

*Lovin'* it! - Edit

This restaurant is pretty small, so if you plan to show up in a group of more than 3 people it's best to call ahead to see how much space they have. It's located in one of the shadier parts of town, but it feels really cozy once you're inside. The food is decent, just don't order one of the "specials". I live further away from them now, and wish they could open another restaurant :( There is a new owner, so it will be interesting to see what the restaurant is like now.

Pros: yummy vegan food

Cons: only certain areas have a/c

I've been to Loving Huts in different parts of the country, some are great, some not at all, but this one was exceptional! Teriyaki chicken sandwich with potato kale soup was great! An excellent stop!

Pros: Generous service, Great food textures, Variety

Cons: not in the nicest part of town, but not a deterren

Wow What A Difference! - Edit

As someone who has experienced loving huts before and after transformation, wow what a difference! The menu is fresh as they have a variety of raw vegan options as well as tasty sandwiches and stirfrys, the desserts are amazing! My boyfriend and I split the faux Buffalo wins, amazing meal with nuggets, and raw vegan cheesecake, all were excellent! Don't be put off by the TV channel or the fact that Supreme master ching hai is all over the place. The staff are very friendly and I've been several times now, have never had a bad meal.

Pros: Cheapish, Delicious, Friendly Staff

Cons: Location

AMAZING VEGAN FOOD! - Edit

Under New Ownership as of the past 3-4 weeks. Very nice people that make sure you have everything you need.
The food was absolutely on point and came out fast. We had spring rolls, bbq wings, organic beans soup, organic potato kale soup, the harmony sandwich, undon noodle, side of fries, 2 chocolate chip cookies, raw cheese cake, and carrot cake. Safe to say we tried enough items to know if this place was good or not. It was all fantastic!

I will eat here again every time I'm in Tampa and highly recommend this place if you're looking to grub down on great food.

Pros: Under New Ownership, Raw meal options, Amazing vegan food

Cons: None

They've been on Dirty Dining....Twice! - Edit

How can people say this food is good. It's horrible! As I was waiting to order my food, A roach was on the floor to greet me. I said, "Sorry mr. Roach, I am vegan, and roaches are not part of my diet".

There was a sign in the bathroom that read do not flush toilet paper. They've been shut down by the state several times. When you look on the outside of the store, the place is full of knee high weeds and the building is in bad shape. You've been warned.

Pros: None

Cons: Dirty , roaches , not appealing
