Respond to Review of CLOSED: The Greenhouse - Rusholme
Review: As a vegan tourist in England, it isn't easy to come by many offerings outside of curry houses (of which there are many) and a few Chinese restaurants. The taxi driver may try to talk you out of going here because the street runs from "Curry Mile" into a very bad neighborhood, but don't let them talk you out of it. This restaurant is safely located one block off of the famed "Curry Mile." It is a little hidden but don't be put off of this little bohemian place. And, don't be afraid of walking off of curry mile down this street to find it. I travel a lot and have tried to remain a vegan throughout my global business trips. THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST! This is a 100% vegetarian restaurant and 50% of the menu items are vegan. You can also have many dishes made vegan and the staff is very friendly and can advise you as to how something can be prepared. There is a regular menu (which has a rediculously robust selection of starters, main courses, and desserts) and seasonal specials. I heard that they try to use locally grown produce so there is a seasonality to the dishes. The Haggis was delicious, the curry sweet potato appetizer had just the right amount of spice, and the squash and nut roast was amazing! My friend (a local resident) had the cheese and spinach pie and said that if all vegetarian tasted this good, she would not need to eat meat. My friend said that she would definitely bring people there again. And, then there is the homemade vegan cheese cake with current sauce. Fantastic! When people ask how someone can possibly remain vegan and travel and whether it is limiting, I will tell them that the next time they visit Manchester they should find The Greenhouse.
