Not Open - Edit

Drove 30 mins to try out a new plant based place. Made sure there hours where good before I headed out. Got there and it's closed. Changed your posted hours if your going to close but why on a SAT. afternoon at 12:30 your closed is beyond me. They got 2 stars only because it will not let me do 1 star.

Friendly and good - Edit

The staff are SO SO friendly! It is amazing :) I particularly liked the Vermicelli Noodles, which came with a nice light sauce and spring rolls. The spicy noodles had a nice broth, but the mushroom balls had an unappealing texture. They seem to offer a few varieties of cake in the fridge, which are pretty good. Looking forward to going back and trying more dishes.

A few weeks later...
I had the Save the Planet Curry and it is so delicious! It looks pretty liquidy, but it is actually really creamy and so soothing. A wonderful comfort food :)

loving this chain! - Edit

Been to the other Loving Hut in the area and just wanted to try the other one as well. This was the only restaurants so far that my omnivore bf loves too. (The both restaurants)
Staff are super friendly. Portions are huge and food is just so delicious I can’t even describe it.
We had some appetisers (golden rolls and spring rolls) then some pho soup- my first and it was amazing. The bowl was huge, one portion should satisfy two people (although this seems to be a theme I find in most restaurants in the US) we fought over the appetisers!
Then we had a chili burger with fries that were seasoned with some really good spices. Never had anything like it, it was amazing.
All in all fantastic experience mouth watering food. Wish I could take this restaurant to Europe with me!

Pros: mouth watering food, friendly staff, lovely atmosphere

great vegan spot - Edit

Food was delicious! Staff was very friendly. Not a restaurant, however there are dining tables in and outside-very small place. Love the message on the wall of prosperity and harmony amongst eachother and animals.
Just yum.

Excellent Experience - Edit

Small restaurant where you order/pay at the counter, and then they deliver the order to your table. Cashier was fun, informative, and cool. She helped us decide on our order: spring rolls, Golden Vermicelli. and Asian Delight. Very pleased by all three. There are three or four tables inside and maybe six out front. They sell a few desserts in the refrigerator near the front door. Nearby, they also sell beverages, vegetarian dog food, and a few other items. Very good experience.

Pros: delicious food - lots of options, great staff, hip crowd

it was pretty good - Edit

We went here while on vacation in Phoenix. I had the Mongolian Beef and my husband had the King Poa Chicken. Both meals were good, but nothing with a wow factor. I am definitely grateful for their purely vegan menu!

Pros: good price , many (all) vegan options

Cons: just okay in taste

Meh - Edit

Did I miss something? The menu here is tiny and pales in comparison to the Phoenix location. Meh. I felt like I was eating at a hospital. I don't get the 5 star thing.

A micro Loving Hut - Edit

I was surprised to find there's a much different menu than the Phoenix location. However, there was plenty to work with. Not much seating however if it's nice outside it was great to sit shop-front. This location has less gluten free options however the one's that are, are delicious. The staff was friendly and the location is perfect.

Pros: Nice vibe, Friendly staff

Cons: Not much seating

Love this place - Edit

Perfect one stop shop. Close to campus. The restaurant is very small but the portions are huge. I love having something different and the loving hut has a diverse menu. Call ahead for Togo orders since there isn't much space in the dining area.

Pros: close to campus, prices are reasonable , friendly staff

Cons: too small of a location for the amount of business

Great food and service!! - Edit

I absolutely love this place! They have great food and the people that work there are super nice. The owner actually taught my son how to use chopsticks which I thought was just awesome :-)

I had the Spicy Guru Fried Rice (I think that's what it's called... haha) and it was really good. Flavor was awesome as well as portion size!

If you get a chance to stop by then I suggest that you do it! The only drawback is that there isn't much space there... It is a pretty small place but still the food is worth it!

Pros: Great food - flavor/portion size, Great service, Great prices

Cons: Not much space

Vegan Food Dreams - Edit

I love Loving Hut! Their food is delicious. Their staff is friendly and fast. The only complaint for the Tempe location is how tiny it is. The tables are small and their aren't very many inside, but I can look past that since the food is awesome.

Pros: 100% Vegan, Friendly Staff, Good price

Cons: Few seating options, Closed Sundays

So so good. - Edit

Super friendly amazing selection. I have had most of the menu already, the only thing that did not do it for me was the chili fries. This is a must for any one, veggie or not.

Good vegan food. - Edit

Almost all of the dishes feature mock meats which I'm not a fan of but despite that everything was very good. The staff were very helpful and the food was prepared quickly and served hot. If I go again I will ask what they can make me without the mock meats. They were so helpful that I believe they would be accommodating.

This is an order at the counter and be served at your table style restaurant. The place is tiny with only three four seat tables inside, one of which only had two stools. It looks like another three tables are available outside for when it isn't cold outside.

Pros: all vegan, decent size menu, friendly staff

Cons: lots of mock meats

Felt the LOVE at Loving Hut Tempe! - Edit

The newest Loving Hut has opened in Tempe, AZ, and the world is smiling. If you're not familiar with Loving Hut, they are the largest vegan restaurant chain in the world. This location is brought to you by the owners of the Glendale LH location.

I went for their grand opening party on Saturday, 21Nov15, which they sweetly dubbed a "Welcoming & Appreciation" Party. From 11am-9pm, they served only a special menu, which consisted of Golden Rolls, Rainbow Salad, Golden Beauty, Kung Pao, Save the Planet Curry, and your choice of Lemongrass, Jasmine, or Hibuscus tea all for only $7.95! This idea is ingenious. Kudos to whomever came up with this. It allowed newbies to try several different dishes, and gave me a chance to go outside of my normal go-to dishes. It was a LOT of food and it came out fast and delicious. 'Twas a very successful and well-organized soft opening.

The employees were all extremely nice. I felt like family; it made my soul smile.

How can you not love Loving Hut? Not only are they 100% vegan, but they are passionately committed to saving the planet (Eco-friendly containers) as well as animals, and they are always sweet and kind. It truly is a Loving Hut. Peace and love, y'all!

Pros: all vegan, friendly staff
