At times you may be cool with a soy burger, or non beef burger whatever it’s made from. This place is 100% vegan, and should say so more clearly. The classic on the menu says it, but no other burger says it in the description...More

We visited a couple of weeks ago, in the “off season”. I was really excited to get some interesting vegan food, having lived on rice, beans and plantain for most of our trip. When we visited there was only one other table of diners. We...More

Delicious vegan restaurant in beautiful setting. We absolutely loved our burgers and left feeling full and super satisfied. The cashew cheese was positively scrumptious. Such a lovely and wonderful gem in Samara.

Although I’m a carnivore the food here was absolutely delicious. If I had food like this all the time I could easily be a vegetarian. Good service, massive portions and great value for money. Recommended

Despite no meat on the menu, Luv Burger has a delicious vegan menu and fun atmosphere. A good try, but coconut bacon is not bacon.

Hi! Samara is a very tiny village, and everything is within easy walking distance. I don't have my little village map with me right now (we're in Vietnam), but I would guess it would take you about 5 minutes from your... More
