Respond to Review of Bistro 1847 - City Centre
Review: Well located restaurant for Manchester city centre although walked past a few times without knowing it was there! Signage could be improved, blends in with the offices in the surrounding area and could do with standing out a little more. Some vegan choices although not an extensive menu. Only one choice for a sweet when I visited although I believe the menu does change quite often. I opted for the battered tofu which arrived quickly and was cooked to order and fresh. I have to say it was probably the most aesthetically pleasing meal I have been given since becoming vegan. The food was well arranged, colourful and looked incredibly appetising. The portion size is a little on the small side however. Taste, well the tofu was a little bland, it certainly didn't match the presentation. I did have a sweet as I was still quite hungry after the main course. This in comparison took some time to arrive. From memory it was a chocolate cake with ice cream and was perfectly adequate but not mind blowing. I dined on a weekday at around 6pm. There was only myself and a table of two dining. I found this quite surprising given the central location. I'd definitely return but maybe later in the evening when hopefully the restaurant is a little more alive.
