Visited this small restaurant in a bit of an "orphaned" block in downtown (in a very accessible place, but not really an block with much happening.) The gentleman who I assumed to be the owner or manager was very nice and service was excellent. Atmosphere was not fancy - more like a lunch place. We ordered dinner - one vegan,... More

Oh my goodness guys, this place is amazing! My mom and I are vegetarians, so have experience with faux meats, but we were not prepared for the faux ham...AMAZING. I ordered the wonton soup and was awed by how lovely the faux ham was. Also we tried the 'pink lady' beverage and were impressed! I am not a cranberry fan,... More

If you are vegan and miss Chinese food, try Loving Hut. I got the equivalent of "beef and broccoli" and it was amazing. I also tried the wonton soup (the wontons are stuffed with tofu) and a veggie stir fry that had vegan shrimp, both great dishes. I would visit Portland again just for this restaurant.

Here is what we ordered: Ocean Burger- very authentic “fishy” seafood taste and fries cooked well Golden Beauty- good quality soy protein with just the right amount of spicy, everyone... More

We went here on Saturday night. Oh is this place packed or what!! But atleast we got a seat fairly quickly, no waiting in the rain outside for us. So that's a great plus. The host (a 1 man show, your seater, server, cashier, you get the idea) was polite enough. He was overworked, but he did his best to... More

This place was amazing. We didn't know what to order so just asked them to bring some popular items. OMG and I never say OMG...the Golden Beauty was amazing General Tsao and seaweed melody were off the charts delicious! I could be Vegan if someone made these dishes for me!

The first time I went to eat at Loving Hut, I was hoping for good vegetarian food. I never expected that everything I ordered would be the best Asian food I've ever eaten! I've gone back so many times I can't count anymore. Many times I've brought friends and family members that are meat eaters and they can't believe how... More

I ordered the soy seafood dish with loads of vegetables. Delicious and filling. I felt like I was served by the Dali Lama. Discrete and competent in a wonderful city.

We had a great dinner here recently. It was great to eat at a vegetarian/vegan place where you don't have to worry about what to order. Everything we ordered was delicious! We had Golden Nuggets, Wontons and Crispy Rolls, Hot and Sour soup for starters. Then we had Mongolian delight, Family tofu, Save-planet curry and Mapo Tofu. All great but... More

My brother, a Portland native, wanted us to try vegan food. So in comes Loving Hut. I was nervous but it was absolutely delicious. You could not even tell it was soy instead of meat. I had fried rice, my daughter had Sweet and Sour "Chicken", my brother had Broccoli "Beef". Free soup with all orders. Service was great and... More
