This orange flavored drink had a nice taste, no alcohol but still refreshing.

First review
 
The Loving Hut is an international vegan restaurant with over 200 locations, of which 40 are in the US. The restaurant emphasizes sustainability, compassion and peacefulness principles. Each restaurant is independently owned and the menus vary by location.

The restaurant was founded by Ching Hai, a Chinese woman who has established multiple businesses and who also founded a religious/spiritual organization. In addition to the restaurant chain, the Ching Hai businesses sell merchandise, books, tapes and religious materials. The Loving Hut restaurant emphasizes plant based diets as a better choice for both people and the planet. The food has an Asian theme and many of the dishes are Chinese.

The restaurant has an open feel, with a mix of white tables and booths and with modest wall decorations. The background music was an easy listening mix. Service was attentive and the food was generally good. Dinner was better than the buffet lunch, though the fried egg rolls and fried rice at lunch were tasty. Most of the dinner entrees include tofu or soy protein. The Chinese style hot and sour soup was thick, rich and spicy; the portion is generous and the soup is worth a second helping. Pot sticker fried dumplings were excellent, perfectly cooked and enjoyable with a soy dipping sauce. The Peking Divine entree with soy protein and bamboo shoots, was mediocre at best. The soy protein was hard to chew and bland, though the sauce was decent. An orange flavored drink with orange and cranberry juice was a small serving but was refreshing. For dessert an apple cinnamon cake was too creamy and was totally unappetizing. Loving Hut will mostly interest vegans and vegetarians and is worth trying, especially for fans of spicy food, but the dish quality is variable.

Went back there for dinner and not as good as first visit, it somewhat disappointing overall. Service was fine. Thai style hot and sour soup was a miss. The soup vegetables were not very tasty. The pan fried dumplings were still tasty but a golden millennium entree with tofu was a real dud, bland.

Great vegan restaurant & friendly owners. The buffet was good & reasonably priced at $7. Ordered the Rainbow Salad off the menu for dinner ($8). Was delicious! Consisted of shredded cabbage & carrots with herbs, soy protein, crushed peanuts and a yummy Asian Vinaigrette. Was enough for a meal!

If you are a vegetarian this is a pretty good place. If your more of a meat and potatoes person its still good just no meat.
