I want them to succeed as well! - Edit

We REALLY want this place to succeed as well, we’ve eaten there 2-3 times when it was Loving Hut, and 3 times as vegan tree. The food looks and tastes both processed and frozen. Too oily. Nothing seems fresh or homemade. It’s the closest vegan restaurant to my house, so I really wish we liked it. For the Asian dishes I’m looking more for the quality of veggie heaven, and the american dishes more the quality of good karma. Hopefully they do an overhaul soon, I had high hopes when they switched owners/rebranded.

Needs Work - Edit

The few times I've been to Vegan Tree have been uneventful. Much of the food is processed, too salty, and/or oily. Too bad, because the location is good, with lots of parking.

Delicious and great service! - Edit

Our first time here. We ordered spicy ramen and Kung Pao fusion. Both delicious. Our daughter had the nuggets -- she ate them all. We also had the cookies 'n cream cake for dessert -- yum. Food aside, nothing can beat the kind service by Evan who was a genuine joy to speak to! So hospitable and kind. Will be back next time we're in the area.

Pros: flavorful, healthy options, affordable

Cons: the table was sticky

Philly Cheesesteak Superb! - Edit

For any of you familiar with "The Loving Hut" that closed down in late 2016/early '17, you'll recognize this place as its predecessor. Its located in the location the Loving Hut used to be, you'll even recognize some posters and the shelf of books Loving Hut had displayed. The Food was enjoyable, I sat down with my two cousins and shared a Pot Stickers Appetizer then I ordered the Philly Cheese Steak, both were eaten with satisfaction. I would and will return again to the Vegan Tree, welcome to the neighborhood

Delicious - Edit

Everything is really good and the prices are great. We order from here often. They have an app you can order your food from and pay with so it's really convenient. I don't know why people are giving them bad reviews. They seem very picky. We order here all the time and love it

Pros: All vegan, Tasty, Reasonably priced

Cons: Sometimes they are out of something I want to orde

One star is being generous - Edit

I cannot stress enough how much I want this place to succeed. I lived about a mile from there for a couple years when it was Loving Hut and that place set the record for the most times I've ever eaten at a bad restaurant. Usually if you have a bad experience you'll maybe go back one more time...twice if the menu is diverse enough. I ate there FIVE TIMES. And it was terrible all five times. So please know that my expectations were very low going in.

Unfortunately, this place was just as bad as Loving Hut. Similar almost all ways. The cheese was bland and didn't taste good. It was a truly bad experience again. If their desserts are still from Vegan Treats then by all means go get the dessert. It's great! But the food made there is borderline inedible.

Pros: vegan treats

Cons: Terrible quality, Bland food, Too expensive

RobertWasilewski 23 Oct 2017 - Sad to read this review, I too would like to see some better vegan places prosper. I really feel too many, Loving Hut included focus on almost fast food like recreations of dairy and meat dishes rather than explore healthful offerings with better flavors. For example, something as SIMPLE as using ripe Jersey tomatoes when in season eludes many places and I find a bland thing that tastes like something bought out of season in the food store. if only places would make fresh fruits and veggies the star of the dish.

Don't miss out on Vegan Tree - Edit

We used to frequent Vegan Tree when it was Loving Hut. Loving Hut had its good dishes and it's not so stellar dishes. One of those dishes I loved was Golden Charm- crispy, spicy goodness that was worth the half an hour trip. I couldn't resist, seeing it on the Vegan Tree menu, I had to try it. Definitely different than the previous establishment's offering but equally delicious. The husband got the Happy Buddha and he loved it so much he wants to come back to get it again.

Like Loving Hut, Vegan Tree is a quaint and calm little eatery with dimmed lights and soft, relaxing music. Our staff experience was pleasant and we definitely encourage you to visit for yourselves.

good entrees - Edit

Appetizers weren't great (felafel didn't have taste, scallion pancake was too greasy) but 2 entrees we had were very good--kung pao tofu and broccoli seitan. Would go back.

Pros: all vegetarian, good entrees

Cons: mediocre appetizers

Loving Hut management is back! - Edit

They just changed the menu and the options are great. I had a wonton soup that is so big that it became my meal (it can serve two). It was delicious. I also had the summer rolls with peanut sauce, very yummy. My friends had the miso soup, the vegan tree burger with fries, and the scallion pancakes. They were happy with their choices. Also, we highly recommend the vegan tree special smoothie.

Pros: tasty food, friendly staff, good location
