Really enjoyed the burger and loaded fries here !!!!!! Unfortunately wasnt the time for a milkshake but they looked great. Wasnt keen on the chicken thingies but was more personal preference than anything! The lighting was too bright it hurt my eyes lol. Would definitely go again x

Pros: lots of choice, great burgers

Cons: bit pricey

Viva la V-Rev - Edit

100% Vegan 'junk' food.
Great range of menu items, friendly and engaged staff. Food arrived very quickly, proper 'dirty' burgers.
Very clean, and the interior design was sleek and modern.
Gender neutral toilets, although downstairs, unsure if ground floor toilets for disabled access.

We ordered the 'Barbecute without the E' burger and the 'Kenan & Kale' burgers. They arrived within a few minutes, really tasty and messy burgers, but didn't taste fatty or gross despite looking junky!

Pros: Fully vegan, Friendly staff, Great menu

Cons: Nothing!

Vegan Junkie's Heaven! 🍔🍟🍗🌭 - Edit

100% vegan junk food restaurant with tons of amazing options like burgers, "chicken", mash, loaded fries, and so much more!
Highly recommend the Two Piece Chkn Meal (see the photos), it's almost like I'm eating actual fried chicken again but, you know, with less a' the killin'! 😊
Be sure to book a reservation in advance because the place gets super busy super fast. Also it's super good value for money! The portions are super big too! Super!
So yeah, stop reading this and just like, you know, GO!!

🐓 "This place makes me happy"

Pros: Tons of amazing options , Awesome staff, Great atmosphere

Cons: My waistline post-meal

An all vegan fast food Restaurant - Edit

After reading all of the advertisements and reviews claiming that this is one of the best vegan restaurants in the UK I had to visit the V Rev and see it for myself. The restaurant has a very cool atmosphere and the staff is super friendly which makes you feel very comfortable and welcomed. I was very hungry after a full day of walking trough the city so I tried one of the „beefy burgers“, the „chicken bites“ and the small mac‘n‘cheese plate. My boyfriend had a chicken like burger and loaded fries. Unfortunately all I can say is that the main dishes were ok, not bad, but also nothing mind-blowing. The mac‘n‘cheese was very bland and I had to drown it in some buffalo sauce to give it at least some taste. The best thing were the Chkn tenders, they were very juicy and tasty! I also tried one of the cocktails, the „peanutty professor“, which was really good and can make up for the fact that they don’t have any desserts. Also note that they don’t offer hotdogs like it says in the description. All in all I would say it’s worth a try since all the good and drinks are vegan!

yummy - Edit

I had Jerry zinger burger and a side Mac n cheese. The burger was really yummy but the chicken was a bit tough and dry. The Mac and cheese was okay but not the best I had. I’d go back and probably try different type of burger

another AMAZING junk food vegan place! - Edit

The thing that stood out the most was that it was table service - most places with a similar vibe are all 'order at the counter' style service. The people here are all really lovely and go out of their way to make you feel welcome!
The atmosphere was buzzing and the food was next level.
It was absolutely incredible, we had a chickn burger and I the 'beef' with cheez, mac n cheez sticks and some amazing milkshakes on the side.
Easy to find too
Lovely place

Pros: Really qwerky setting , City Centre location , they sell ALCOHOL

Great Place. Great Food - Edit

This has become my favourite hangout place in the heart of Manchester city centre. Really good fast food diner with helpful and friendly staff. It was reassuring to be told that everything on the menu was vegan and to enjoy truly guilt free eating experience. I wish every place was this good.

Pros: great food, great staff, relaxing atmosphere

Cons: sides

Disappointing - Edit

I went on Sunday afternoon for lunch with my bf and was very disappointed. I've been vegan for 5 years and eaten in my fair share of vegan places and the food here was pretty shocking. Don't understand how it's got such good reviews?!

We ordered the chick'n and fake beef burgers and loaded chips and they were so greasy, sauces were too sweet and my seitan chicken was underdone - like squishy and unappetising. Disgusting and at almost £10 for a meal for one, outrageous prices.

So many other delicious places to eat in Manchester. Not recommended.

Pros: service, location, speed

Cons: price, taste, cooking

Proper dirty vegan fast food... Mmmm - Edit

This is my bf's favourite place so we end up going here quite a lot... The menu has changed a bit recently, with some tasty new options added like the popcorn chkn and deep fried mac n' cheez balls - both very tasty. But the best things on the menu are the long standing burgers. Basically any of the burgers are delish, but the chkn ones tend to have a bit more flavour because they're deep fried :D lol

They have lots of milk options for coffees, lattes, milkshakes etc, including oat, almond and rice milk.

Cakes and brownies are delish - IF they have them, as they are quite often sold out by the evenings.

This place is also dog (and cat) friendly!

Pros: Pet friendly - take your pooch!, Tasty food - proper dirty burgers, Always adding new items to menu

almost too realistic vegan meat - Edit

this place is pretty cool. it looks like an american diner and also smells like one. they have many classic junk food options to choose from, all vegan of course.

i tried the singer (chicken) burger and the ribs. I haven't eaten meat in 16 years, so I might not be the best too judge, but for me the meat was VERY realistic. even too realistic. so it's a great place for vegan meat lovers.

Updated from previous review on 2017-09-06

Pros: cool decor, openly pro lgbtqa+, very realistic fake meats

Cons: the meat might be too realistic for some people

Cool everything! - Edit

I loved the food as much as the interior. Great vibes and a good menu selection. Perfect place for anyone who loves vegan junk food. I'm only here for a few days and I plan on going back at least once.

A Northern Quarter treat - Edit

Great cafe for a lunch when shopping in Central Manchester, based in the trendy up and coming Northern Quarter, V Revolution holds its own with all the other places. The menu does confuse, but once you realise that it's all Vegan, the ordering is simple. Great food, but slightly pricey.

Please bring back the Helvis Presley

Pros: Easy reach of City centre, Friendly

Cons: a tad expensive, but not massivly

Vegan American in Manchester - Edit

This is a great american fast food place and is my go to in Manchester.
The burgers are always top notch at V Revs, and the chips are always crispy on the outside fluffy inside. The milkshakes are sooo good, way to big for me on my own so i usually share between two people :)
and their bbq sauce is off the charts.

It's not quite the same as it was before it moved from Oldham street... The vibe is very different, feels more corporate I guess? Depending on what day you go the staff can be hit and miss with how genuine they feel. It doesn't have that grungy Manchester feeling in the mix so much any more which is a bit of a shame. Maybe just go at a less busy time?

With all that said you definitely should go, because even if you have to wait a tad longer for you food at the busiest times of the day and even if you get a waiter/ress that seems like they aren't trying their hardest, the food is still the best vegan junk food i have had in the world. (so far :P)

Pros: Best vegan food in Manchester?, lgbtq+ friendly toilets, still good food

Cons: service is hit and miss at new location

Nice selection - but not over the top burgers - Edit

I stopped by during my visit in Manchester as it was so highly rated and I longed for a good vegan burger (which is surprisingly hard to come by in my current home town Copenhagen).
After a 45 min wait (for which the waitress started to apologize after 30 min and offering a free drink) I finally got my 'BBQ without U'. The burger was ok, albeit everything was a bit lukewarm. Similar the fries - I felt the had been sitting in the basket for a while, waiting for the burger to be prepared, getting a bit cold and limper than they might have been at the beginning (but since they must have started off pretty great, they were still very ok).
The only thing that really bothered me, was the taste of the ketchup and mustard on the table. Both of them tasted somewhat.. off... too vinegary maybe..
I imagine some of the shortcomings in preparation quality was due to the busy kitchen (although the restaurant was not completely full when I came in).
Unfortunately, I didn't find the 'over the top' burger experience that other reviews had been promising - but it was good enough and quite filling. I guess coming a little off-peak hours might have improved the experience :-)

Pros: Big all-vegan selection of burgers, (In principle) great fries

Cons: Long wait (when busy), Lukewarm food (when busy), Weird ketchup..

Vegan junk food heaven! - Edit

Ordered the Mac dog, and the ribs with Mac and loaded fries, everything was so delicious and realistic to what I remember non vegan junk/fast food tasting like! Also got the Oreo milkshake which was more like Oreo milk cause it was kind of watery, but still delicious. Just be warned, you will not feel your best coming out of this place... vegan junk food is still junk food!

Food heaven - Edit

Oh my Glob, the food in this place really is something else. Absolutely delicious! I had the BBQ ribs with mac and cheez, which was the best meal I've had in a long time. My other half had the Jerry Zinger burger, which was equally delicious. The milkshakes are to die for and their cocktails are tasty and very reasonably priced. Service was great and the staff couldn't do enough for us. Will definitely be back next time I'm in Manchester.

Updated from previous review on 2017-08-10

Pros: Great selection of dishes, Lovely staff, Tasty cocktails, good selection of drinks

Cons: There isn't a branch in Edinburgh
