Went for dinner last night with a friend. Love the decor staff were friendly, took our order and my food came, was small but delicious. My friends meal however did not arrive. After speaking to 3 separate staff members. 2 didn't return for update. We...were told they hadn't made it and did she want it now. I had finished mine. Going to pay and eftpos was down, we were directed to an atm across the road. It wasnt working grr. Came back and took the docket to pay next day, they weren't very happy about that! Docket was the wrong one! There was so much mayhem at the counter we left. Rang today to pay. No apology, no thank you for your understanding and calling to pay. Won't be in a hurry to returnMore

Vegan food- plain and simple. Clean kitchen, child friendly and reasonable prices. When I don't feel like cooking, it's a tram ride from home, and I have a delicious soup or vegetable spring roles.

I was house sitting in Northcote, and found this fabulous vegan restaurant. I order lemon chicken (vegan), steamed veggies and white steamed rice. I phoned the order in, and it was ready in 15 minutes. The service was excellent and the food delicious.

Food was very tasty fresh and filling. The venue is a bit cafeteria like but food is great! I’d definitely visit again when next in Northcote.

The space is very large / too large really as I found the environment to not fit in properly on Northcote High Street due to the size / lack of charm. Service was ok. We were told about a specials board but the pair if...us couldn't see it. We had to usher a waitress over to come and serve us as we wanted to place our order. The menu is full of vegan foods - rice - noodles - fake meats. We shared some starters and had noodle mains each. I had a fake chicken dish and it was "ok" but the fake chicken was not the best. Prices were ok.More

Great food and great friendly staff. Huge variety of dishes all vegan including entrees, mains and desserts. Pho soup brilliant and the san Choi bow. Only thing not so good was the banana frittter which must of been green as it was tasteless and hard.

We've been to Loving Hut in Richmond, but had heard such good things about Northcote we made a special trip to check it out. Let me tell you - it was worth the drive!!! The menu was so much more extensive than the Richmond location,...and if mock meats are your thing, this place is heaven! I loved how the tables were not crowded together. There is loads of space to move around and the tables were adorned with little, flickering battery operated candles and green, live assorted plants. Whilst it's not a fancy place, the little touches definitely add an air of comfort. The food came fast but we visited prior to the dinner rush. We had entrees within 10 minutes of ordering and mains within 15 minutes. The food was fresh, HOT and perfect. My only regret? Eating too much! Even so, we couldn't resist ordering 2 desserts to take with us. (which were ALSO delicious, no surprise there!) My goal in life is to keep going back to this Loving Hut until I've ordered everything on the menu. A lofty goal, but so much fun ticking off my list!More
