Great vegan food - imaginative and wonderfully presented. Probably not a 5/5 due to it feeling not great value but service was really really good so made up for slightly toppy pricing (in my opinion!)
Poor, slow, service. Brought mains before starters. Uninventive menu, food lacking in flavour crowded ‘cafe’ like atmosphere. Would be acceptable if priced a quarter of what it is.
Excellent- would highly recommend!
The food at Allotment was absolutely superb. Delightful and will definitely be back.
But the service was terrible, we waited at least 20 minutes to place our order and at least 20/30 mins between all three courses.
We ate all our ordered food in total of about 30 minutes but were in the restaurant from being seated to leaving for over 2.5 hours.
Third time we have eaten at the Allotment and again a very good experience. New dishes on the menu along with some previous options. All four of us enjoyed the dishes - and the four were one vegan one vegetarian and two omnivores! One suggestion - a wider range of vegan bottled beers would be welcome - especially in 500 ml bottles!
Delicious food on every plate. Our favourites were the banana blossom to start, the jackfruit kofta main and then the cheese board. The staff were friendly & super attentive too.
The food was excellent and the services was friendly and attentive.
Really yummy food, everything we had was delicious, husband is not vegan and he loved it!
A revelation. And I'm not a vegan. The mix of flavours and textures in the vegetables was wonderful. And an excellent wine I had never heard of, completed the experience beautifully- well priced too! It is a smart casual restaurant and you can eat there almost anytime of the afternoon or evening. We both loved our dishes.
I will definitely be revisiting to try out the a la carte menu! The brunch menu was great and highly recommend. Lovely welcoming atmosphere as soon as you walk in the restaurant.
An interesting concept where we tried the 10 course tasting menu. It was good to try some foods just I would not usually order. There were some dishes that didn’t work but clearly had been creatively thought through.
Spotless, comfortable, excellent friendly service. The food was outstanding. Lunch menu, 2 courses and coffee £10. Will be visiting again.
Terrific plant based food! Shame the Sunday roast wasn't available that day but we very much enjoyed the a la carte menu.
Hi Susan, Thanks for leaving us a review! We're so happy you enjoyed our food. Hopefully we can see you again soon on a Sunday and you enjoy it as much as you did the a la carte menu. Many Thanks, Chloe
I chose the Kofta which were very very dense and not something I particularly enjoyed. The menu was nice but not a huge choice. Very low key dining setting, quite casual (we were hugely over dressed) and the service was really friendly and very very helpful.
Hi Sophie, Oh No! It's a shame you didnt like your Kofta, they can be very filling. We do try and keep our menu small and change it often, as a casual fine dining restaurant we believe this is the best way to serve the best quality food. We hope wee can see you again soon and hopefully you will enjoy different dish off of our menu! Many Thanks, Chloe
Really nice and tasty food
Wonderful food, even for a meat eater... service was a little slow (only 2 servers) and it got pretty busy on a Friday night.
Hi Jon, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review! We're glad you enjoyed your food, and chose to eat at a vegan restaurant if you're not vegan yourself! We do apologise about the slow service, you know how Friday nights can be sometimes. We will take this comment on board and try to ensure we always have enough staff to ensure you have the best experience possible. We hope we can see you again soon! Many Thanks, Chloe
DELICIOUS FOOD!!!! It’s so rare to find such amazing food that’s all plant based. And they made me a mocktail off-menu too. Wonderful!
Thank you for taking the time to leave us this lovely review! We're so happy you enjoyed your experience here with us, we hope we can see you again soon! :) Many Thanks, Chloe
I loved every second and mouthful at The Allotment. The food was outstanding and I’ve never been so stuffed, the flavours, presentation everything was perfect. The staff from the moment we arrived until the second we left were incredible and an absolute credit. We will definitely be back! Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Hi Megan, Yay! All the team are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us, it makes us super proud of what we do! We really hope we can see you again soon, and that you enjoy it just as much the second time round :) Thanks for leaving us this lovely review. Kind Regards, Chloe
Lovely vegan restaurant with a good imaginative selection of food with great presentation. Nice staff, good ambience & nice central location. Will definitely return!
Hi Barbara, Thanks so much for leaving us this positive review! As a small working team, hearing our customers have had a good experience makes us so happy! :) We look forward to seeing you again. Kind Regards, Chloe
very nice vegan food in a pleasant atmosphere - recommended
Hi Phil, Thank you so much! We appreciate your feedback, and hope we can see you again soon for another pleasant evening :) Many Thanks, Chloe
We both had a fantastic evening. My husband was dubious about eating at a vegan restaurant as he is definitely a carnivore but was massively impressed by the quality of the food and range of options. We both left with very full tummies and happy faces and would certainly recommend. Well worth a visit!
The food on the 10 course taster menu was absolutely gorgeous, which has helped me decide which full size courses ill be choosing when i return.
Staff lovely and good value for money.
The only bit of constructive critisism relates to the ambience, which coukd benefit from a change of background music to create a more modern upbeat vibe.
Hi Rick, That's great! We're glad you enjoyed it, it really is a unique taste experience isn't it! Thank you for your constructive critisism, we will take it on board and hopefully we will have a better ambience when you return :) Many Thanks, Chloe
Extremely tasty meal with a good atmosphere.
Awful food, nobody in the restaurant except us, it was a Sunday afternoon to be fair but I was still surprised. The place stank of old oil like a kitchen who doesn’t have a working fan.
The food was disappointing to say the least, I’ve been cooking and eating vegan for the last 12 months and I’ve made some amazing dishes by researching and trying different stuff, it’s all been lovely. This is the first time I’ve eaten in a vegan only restaurant and it was dreadful.
My starter was basically half a carrot on a large plate. My main course was a large bunch of beetroot lightly roasted and not cooked well and not much else going on that is even worth a mention.
My partners main was the worst though. She ordered hassleback courgette. This should have been light super thin slices across the top, it was large inconsistent cuts through the top and was not toasted or seasoned and was soggy and looked heated up.
First world problems I know but this meal also cost us £50.
I’ve eaten vegan in normal restaurants a fair few times and it’s always been better than this.
My advice is to avoid, my advice to the allotment is you need a new brigade of chefs who care about vegan food.
Wanted to visit for a few months and glad I did. We were going to have the Sunday lunch but when seeing the a la carte we opted for that. All the courses were very different which is what you want we had two mains, two sides, sweets and drinks for well under £70. My meat eater son was very impressed which I feel shows the quality and imagination of the menu.
Disappointed that even though I said it was a bday for someone in my party no cake or something given.
Really good food and service. Imaginative dishes, well-presented.
Massive disappointment , went to the previous place when situated in Stockport, couldn’t fault it, this in its relocated site wasn’t a patch on the old place, starters were quite good however the side f cauliflower wings weren’t cooked, batter was still runny & uncooked my main was basically an uninspiring chargrilled Aubergine bit of a let down all in all
Me, my partner and her daughter had a meal here on Saturday 24th August 2019. We thought the food was good but the service was poor. My partner's daughter asked for more sugar but we had to ask for it again as it seemed that they had forgotten. We also had to ask twice for a jug of water and the bill.

read all the reviews online and i was expecting great things. Don't get me wrong the service and food was not bad. I just wasn't blown away by the food or the service.

The food here was delicious. So lovely to eat such carefully thought out vegetarian (and vegan) food. The flavours were light and complimented each other well.
Great place to eat healthy and tasty vegan and gluten free food - lovely ambience to the place, lighting and never too loud. Greatly appreciated design in the place and the presentation of meals!

An lovely meal, helped convince my grandma that being a vegan is not terrible
Hi Monica, We're thrilled that you and your grandma had a lovely experience with us, and were glad we could help her see how awesome it can be eating vegan! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review :) We hope to see you again soon, Chloe
Having previously enjoyed dining at the initial Stockport Allotment, had tentative expectations for it’s relocation to Manchester. No worries, fundamentally the same. Difference is more seating space & opportunity for wider menu options, but they retain same excellent standard of taste & presentation with great service from staff who are willing to answer questions about ingredients & preparation. Hope to make many return visits. Thank you.
Thank you for leaving this lovely review, it's put a smile on our little teams faces knowing that we succeed in giving our diners a pleasant experience with us! We also hope to see you again soon :) Chloe- The Allotment
The food here is so delicious, the atmosphere is calm and welcoming, the staff are friendly and knowledgable. I couldn't reccomend the Allotment more, it is the best place for the tastiest vegan food in Manchester.
Thank you so much for your lovely feedback! We're really glad you enjoyed your experience with us. As a small business, all feedback is greatly appreciated and helpful to us, its nice to know were doing things right! Thank you for making the team smile today, we hope to see you soon :) Kind Regards, Chloe- The Allotment
Really enjoyable experience. Staff friendly and knowledgable
The staff at The Allotment were friendly and knowledgeable about the food they were serving. We had the 10 course menu and enjoyed every bite.
