Loving Hut - Wan Chai - Edit

I had heard a lot about the Loving Hut chain of vegan restaurants but I had never been to one until I visited the Wan Chai restaurant a couple of days ago.

The place is located in the second floor of an old building. The local is spacious and clean. The staff was very friendly since the moment we enterd the restaurant.

The food was tasty and cheap. The noodles and the fried rice deserve special recognition. The pizza was decent but not great, I wouldn't order it again. Everything is vegan so that is an added plus at least for me.

I would go again given that the food is really nice and cheap.

Pros: Nice food, Cheap, Friendly staff

Horrible frozen rubbish - Edit

Amazed by the great reviews for this place.
It's staffed by disinterested, grumpy teenagers. The food is frozen and then prepared by microwave. I could tell it was mic-ed by the ridiculous temperature. No flame can ever get that hot. It was 10 minutes before I dared touch it with a spoon. If you are in any doubt, just check the takeaway freezer to the left of the door. It's filled with frozen prepackaged goods from the menu.
Really nasty stuff.
Please, if you think this place deserves 5 stars go take a look at "Home Eat to Live" down the road.

Pros: Nice views

Cons: Microwave dinners, Disinterested staff

Enjoyed this Loving Hut - Edit

We enjoyed our meal at this Loving Hut. We sat against the windows looking out on the interesting street-scape. We didn't order that many dishes because we just needed a light meal at the time but we had a fried rice and some dim sum type choices. They were yummy and just what we needed. We also took a couple of "Happy Cow" ice creams away with us for dessert - we tried the Black Sesame ice cream and the Hazelnut ice cream - so good. Price of food very reasonable and as others have said, it was relatively easy to find with help from google maps. They seem to sell some vegan products that you can take away to cook at home/make meals with. We wanted to go again but we didn't get back to that part of town during the rest of our time in Hong Kong.

Pros: Good, wholesome food., Quick service, Good value

Amazing - Edit

Amazing food here and they are very strict about keeping everything vegan. Huge menu with mostly Asian dishes but also have some western food including vegan cheese pizzas and even desserts such as Tiramisu! Everything tastes fantastic and is at a cheap price for Hong Kong. Also a nice place to sit with plenty of space. Go for the set menu where you can choose three of seven dishes if you like variety. They even have a grocery section with vegan cheese for sale and vegan pet food!

Updated from previous review on 2017-04-17

Pros: Large Menu, Cheap!, Very Strictly Vegan

Not the best. - Edit

I've eaten in a lot of Loving Hut restaurants in Asia and Europe and this is so far the least interesting.
I ordered a set, a desert (the so-called tiramisu) and some doughnuts.
The portions are big enough, I got a sweet tea (I could have asked a soup), three different portions of mock meat and vegetables plus rice.
The mushrooms and sauce were terribly salty, the pumpkin and its sauce bland, the mock meat and broccoli just ok. The tea was nice. The doughnuts as well but to light (or too small). And the tiramisu... well they'd better check for another recipe ! I was so disappointed, this was no tiramisu at all but an ice cream looking like a frozen tiramisu-cake, bland...
The staff working there was very friendly.

Pros: Big choice, Friendly staff, Cheap

Cons: Some meals are too salty, Some meals are bland, One desert is not what it should be.

An obvious choice - Edit

Centrally located eatery in Wan Chai, easy to find (billboard in front of door and ads in windows in first floor).
Spacious venue providing plenty of tables and seats. Good value lunch deal, you'll get full for a relatively small amount of money. À la carte dishes are a good choice too - large range. You'll pay directly after ordering at the counter. That's a bit annoying, especially if you want to order something else later (again counter, order, pay), but in return you don't pay the common 10% service charge.
The desserts could be better, I wasn't particularly impressed. The tarts were the best, I'd say; the tiramisu the worst as far as I am concerned (came frozen and tasted bland).
The decor isn't special, but it is always clean, as the premise is being cleaned several times a day. However, the entrance into the building isn't very inviting - seriously mould-infested wall.
Also, they sell vegan ice cream and vegan dog and cat food.
Definitely no gourmet choice, but it spares your wallet.
Helpful staff, good free WiFi. Free lemon water. Sometimes live music.

Pros: plenty of choice, inexpensive

Cons: desserts could be better, soup is very basic (not bad though)

Nice!! - Edit

Had the set dinner that comprised of steamed cabbage and veggies (yum), mixed veggies cooked in gravy (yum) and tofu ( a bit bland), steamed red rice and a clear soup.

but love that they dont use MSG and also they have a counter with condiments for you to add your own sauces, salt, pepper and other seasonings etc if u find the food not flavorful enough.

Great value for money as it's so filling! the set dinner and 2 vegan egg tarts cost only HK$ 76.

The restaurant is spotless, clean, spacious, good seating arrangements



Updated from previous review on 2016-09-23

Pros: Good value for money (esp set meals), no MSG, not too salty, simple and healthy food, Staff was excellent, very helpful

loads of choice, too salty - Edit

I really wanted to love this restaurant, they have almost everything I wanted on the menu, and it's rather cheap.
However, everything I tried was way too salty, tasted a bit too much artificially flavoured(perhaps it's because it's supposed to be like a fast food restaurant?)
Anyway I'd definitely come back hoping to find something I can love, I have to say staff were super friendly there, it's also a nice environment to eat too !

Loving Hut Wan Chai - Edit

Bright and clean. No frills vegan "cha tsan teng" with the normal HK cafe staples at a comparative price. We went around 2pm on a weekday and it was half full. We ordered a set where you choose three dishes to go with rice for $50 and a charsiu flat noodle stir fry for $60. Both came with a drink. They even have a free lemon water refill station and a small selection of vegan groceries. Fresh and tasty meals win friendly service.

Pros: Reasonable price, fast service

Great value for your money - Edit

This is an excellent find: A vegan paradise amongst an abundance of restaurants. Friendly staff eager to explain the menu. Try and sit by the window to enjoy the busy street life at the bottom while enjoying the food from the 2nd floor. When taking a menu a drink is included - I choose the malt tea which is genuinely refreshing. Desserts are truly advisable and they even have Happy Cow ice cream. Should you have a pet they also sell vegan pet food.

Pros: Good selection , Takeaways

The Perfect Hangout Spot - Edit

This loving hut is a safe haven for me and my vegan friends -- everything on the menu is vegan and delicious. The staff are always super friendly and remember us each visit, often giving us free desserts. The occasional live music creates a chill atmosphere and the grocery section has many vegan products you can't find elsewhere in Hong Kong. I wouldn't call LH gourmet/health food, but it's cheap and tasty!

Pros: good value, friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere

Cons: many processed food items, frequently sold out of menu items

My fav place in HK - Edit

When I was in HK I basically had to force myself not to go to Loving Hut Wan Chai all the time so I could try other places as well. I still ended up going 3 times in 5 days though. Everything I've tried there was amazing: vegan tarts, vegan barbecued pork rice noodle, XO sauce fried rice, soy milk tea, creme brûlée, etc. Staff was super friendly too, and it was adorable.

Pros: amazing food , friendly staff , many selections

Pros: Awesome food, Friendly staff, Good value for money

Huge menu, hard to choose! - Edit

Need to look carefully for the sign outside!

Me and my girlfriend went two times - first time, we got a pizza and... I can't remember what else >.<

The second time, we got that same pizza again (Laksa?), and two of the set meals (which allow you to choose 3 of 6 dishes - so we got to try all!). There was enough to fill us up very well, and being able to taste a range of dishes was a very nice experience. I became much more comfortable with mock meats, popular in Asia, thanks to Loving Hut.

Friendly waiters kept our waters topped up, and all staff were courteous the whole time. Live music was being played by guests (dinner/late afternoon time), and this coupled with applause from all gave a nice atmosphere.

The red milkshake with rose petals on top tasted intensely divine. I'd definitely be happy to go again - a few times! So much to try!

Pros: Huge array of dishes to choose from, Some dishes taste fantastic, Set meal lets you try many dishes

Overall Positive Experience - Edit

The restaurant is hard to see since it is not on the ground floor. The exterior of the building is not very aesthetically pleasing although the inside is very clean. The restaurant also sells vegan dog food and spices and some other vegan products. There are also vegan desserts which are rather hard to find in other places. The food is very inexpensive.

Pros: large variety of food, vegan desserts, low price

Cons: exterior not aesthetically pleasing

great place and friendly staff - Edit

I'm rediscovering this place... Indeed I had been here 2 years and for some reasons my first impression was not really positive. One of the reasons was that the menu is a bit messy with too many choices, and I guess I did not pick up something that I liked... Then a month ago, I happened to come here again, and I was surprised to find the food excellent, with good quantity and at a very cheap price. On top of that the staff is very nice. Now I'm coming back each time I'm around in Wanchai. I like the idea of this set diner with 3 dishes to select among 5 for 58hk$. Love their spring rolls and the vegan egg (everything is vegan here). Also like the pizza with vegan cheese. Entrance is a bit difficult to find, but you'll find it. Just go!

Pros: great choice of vegan dishes, friendly staff , friendly prices

Cons: you'll get lost in the huge choice of dishes

huge variety consisting of mainly mock meats - Edit

whenever i step into loving hut wanchai, i spend close to ten minutes poring through its vast menu board, even after a staff member has stepped out from behind the counter, patiently explaining that those in column 1 are snacks/appetisers, column 2 a la carte dishes (additional charge for rice/soup), and column 3 set meals (with rice/soup included), etc.

i think i've figured out why. i like my veggies - the more the merrier - and, for all its variety, the more reasonably priced set meals in the third column are weighted towards mock meat rather than veg, besides a helping of cabbage mix in some. if you prefer more greens, i'd suggest paying a little more and going for the a la carte dishes in the second column, adding rice and soup if desired. it may be a little too much for one person if you're a smaller eater, so you might want to bring along a container to pack leftovers.

today i gave up deciphering the menu and settled instead for the $58 set dinner - standard hk vege fare of rice, soup and a choice of 3 out of 6 pre-prepared dishes: tofu, gourd and cabbage. the food today was nothing to write home about and, given the price (i can't help but compare it with how much a similar yet more delicious meal costs during lunchtime at other wanchai establishments), i will choose from the main menu next time.

staff were friendly and though it's self-service one of them brought a glass of lemon water to me once i was seated. the place is bright and clean, cafeteria style, good for solo diners. propaganda tv plays on silently, so if you don't look up that's fine.

a tiny gripe - the long tables along the windows don't seem to have been measured properly and are a tad too high for eating naturally.

Pros: friendly staff, good for solo dining, decent portions

Cons: menu choices are overwhelming
