Looking for some delicious vegan food in Manchester? You’ll not only find super awesome attractions, things to do, and fun activities in this cool northwest England city, but also an array of mouthwatering vegan spots to eat at! Here are my top 3 vegan restaurants in Manchester you can’t miss out on when in the city.
As the second largest city in England, it’s no surprise Manchester has a multitude of awesome vegan and vegetarian restaurants.
You can find everything your veggie heart desires here; from flavor-packed Indian and Mediterranean food to greasy (yet satisfying) vegan burgers and junk food. Or if you’re in the mood for nutritious and delicious wholesome food, this city has got that, too!
Heck, even sickly sweet — but amazing — desserts that’ll satisfy any raging sweet tooth is easily found here! In fact, I had one of the BEST vegan brownies of my life in Manchester (which you’ll find below!).
But anyways, as you can see, vegan Manchester has a lot to offer! So, with that said, here are my favorite 3 vegan places I ate at while traveling through the city.
Each is 100% vegan, so you can be sure there’s absolutely zero animal-product cross-contamination — woohoo!
3 MOUTHWATERING VEGAN RESTAURANTS IN MANCHESTER
Centrally-located in the Arndale Food Market, Wholesome Junkies is a vegan junk foodies dream!
Serving up fried “chicken” wings, greasy burgers (I hear the KFC burger is outta this world!), vegan hot dogs, and, as I mentioned earlier, some of the best vegan brownies EVER, Wholesome Junkies is where it is at.
Personally, I tried the fried “chicken” wings (aka battered and fried oyster mushrooms) tossed in spicy buffalo dressing with a chive mayo dipping sauce and it was f*cking fantastic. Perfectly crispy and packed with flavor!
For a dessert (or shall I say starter because yes, I totally did eat my dessert while waiting for my wings to come), I tried one of their brownies.
While each day it seems as though they make a different brownie, this one was packed with ooey gooey chocolate chips and topped with biscoff cookies and what seemed like a yummy caramel sauce. In other words… it was heaven!
And yes, I did totally go back the next day and get another one, which happen to be an oreo filled one!

V Rev Vegan Diner
Oooph, just thinking about this place makes my mouth water!
Hands down, this is the place if you want some downright unhealthy, yet so so satisfying, vegan food in Manchester!
Their specialty lies in their super duper meaty, plant-based, junk food burgers!
With 13 different burger combinations on the menu — like the Kevin Bacon, Donut Have a Cow, Man; Southwest of Heaven, and Jerry Zinger — you won’t even know what to do with yourself!
But don’t forget about all their other fabulous options — loaded fries, mac & cheez, hot dogs, salads (but definitely not healthy!), and even creamy milkshakes!
When visiting, Dan tried their kebab salad that was packed with kebab “meat”, crispy greens, slaw, fresh veggies, and amply topped with a creamy sriracha and coriander (cilantro) dressing. It was pretty good!
I, on the other hand, smashed one of their seriously stuffed burgers! Specifically, their breakfast burger that featured a “beefy” patty, smoked “gouda”, tofu omelette patty, smashed avo, garlic-y kale, and an unbelievably soft brioche bun.
I definitely couldn’t finish it all — it was HUGE!
The two of us shared a portion of their “chicken” tenders tossed in spicy buffalo sauce paired with ranch and they were pretty good, too!

The littlest, cutest Indian fast food outlet serving up delicious curries, naan, roti, and more, Little Aladdin is perfect if you’re in the mood for some quick, cheap, and easy Indian food!
For just £6, you can get the green plate special and fill your plate with 3 different curries and some rice! Pretty darn good prices for Manchester.
When visiting, Dan got the green plate and I ended up going with their chana masala with naan. Both were delicious!
Although, I will say this — we visited right before they were closing (around 9 pm) and the curries were quite cold!
But with that said, I’d still visit here again and again because hey, it’s perfect for walking around the city and filling up on cheap, easy, delicious vegan food to replenish your energy! Definitely a great vegan restaurant in Manchester.
