Visited on Friday 13th March. I ordered a hot chocolate with the mac and cheese to start and the Cheezeburger with sweet potato salad as my main. Such tasty food, by far the best burger I've ever eaten and fantastic, friendly staff too.

My girlfriend had the same main with the chicken satay starter and we both loved our first trip to Vertigo.

Will most definitely be returning very soon and will be telling everyone how good it was :)

Food was delicious and well-priced (especially the peanut butter dhal! A flavour combination I'd never have thought of but am deffo glad these folks did!) Dessert was also incredible - a toffee-apple sponge bake - and staff neatly wrapped it for me, warmed and with a scoop of ice-cream to take away as I was on a tight schedule. Location is conveniently close to the Royal Exchange, so Vertigo makes an ideal pre-theatre dinner option. They even have a pre-theatre menu! The only drawbacks in my opinion were the loos (all the way downstairs secluded in the basement, which would make them hard to access for mobility-impaired individuals) and the small space, which meant tables were crammed very close together and there wasn't much room for multiple dishes on each table.

It was late but the place was full and that meant a bit of a wait. The food was fine, although the mushroom pie I had was a bit dry pastry wise. The hoummus and bread looked good and my starter of cauliflower wings was nice and hot. Shame padron peppers weren't on the menu that night though.

Really lovely place with great service and friendly staff. I've been here for breakfast, lunch and dinner many times and will be going many more. Great place to chat as it isn't too loud and the food is amazing!

The vibe is a bit odd, very bare walls and a bit hollow. The food was nice, however both our dishes were incredibly spicy, we both like hot food but this was a bit over the top.

Very friendly service and the food was delicious! It was the first time my parents ate vegan and they really loved it!
We arrived at 7.15pm but we were charged for the theatre-menu, we didn’t ask for that or even mentioned it, so that’s very very kind!
Allthough we were told that de small dishes were like starters, it was a lot. Therefore we couldn’t finish the main dish. But we could bring it home so we had a wonderfull breakfast.
It is that I live in Holland, otherwise I would come here every week!

The food was ok. The dal was a bit bland lacking depth of flavour and needed plenty of salt as it wasn’t seasoned enough for me. Same for the rice.

The food was very good, especially the chilli con carne and the Oreo Cake, would definitely return and recommend to friends. The only negative is that the tables are small and closely packed together, but the space in the eating area is at a premium.

I found this restaurant on the app happy cow. I thought the ambiance of the place was amazing and it had really nice decor. The food was really good! We ordered mac and cheese, cheeseburger, jackfruit chilli and the seitan skewer which all tasted great. The staff were really lovely, I would definitely go there again.

Great, relaxed and cosy vibe. Food was fast but still super fresh and delicious. The staff were lovely, really helpful and friendly. Have been several times before and will definitely be visiting again. Amazing choice of vegan food which is delicious for both vegans and non vegans alike. One of my favourite eateries in Manchester!

My wife and I are not vegan, but don't mind doing without meat occasionally. We both deliberately did not go for meat substitute meals but chose what I would call proper vegan meals. I had a vegetable stew which was really nice, my wife went for lentil curry which I had half of as we did a swap of meals half way through. The curry was to hot for my wife and there was a lot of it, probably just a bit too much. We both had starters which were very good. The service was excellent and the staff couldn't have been nicer. Very helpful.

Second visit in a month. Although not vegan (yet) the food is enticing enough to make me change to abandon meat eating. Had the cheeseburger and couldn't tell the burger wasn't meat - it was that good.

Already arranged with my wife and relatives to visit again in 2 weeks.
