Best vegan cheesecake

I have been there twice. Both times I had a burger which was okay, but let me tell you about the New York cheesecake they once had. It was the best thing in the world. Delicious. Sadly they didn’t have it the second time I went there😒

Huge portions!

Great vegan junk food, the portions are big and it’s hard to choose what to order. Staff are also really nice!

Wasted money

The burger was extremely small and poor-looking, the only pro is that the meat actually tasted real. For that price we expected way more
The daily meal (a salad) was the only option without meat so if you’re not into it then there is no reason at all to go there (however the salad was okay)
Morover we went there during hot weather 30 C and inside the AC was waaaaay to strong. We had to put on hoodies and jackets

Pros: Polite service

Cons: Expensive , Small burgers

Best vegan food in Manchester!

This restaurant definitely has the best vegan food in Manchester! Mostly junk food but healthier options are available as well. Service is always very friendly! Bathroom is downstairs so unfortunately not very accessible.

Pros: All vegan, Amazing food, Friendly service

Vegan junk food

V Rev is a nice little diner offer a range of vegan junk food. Their pun-heavy menu features burgers, jumbo hot dogs, nachos, mac 'n' cheese & much more. It's a cool little place with plenty of outdoor seating which is great on one of those rare days when it isn't raining in Manchester! Prices are reasonable and portions are generous. Don't expect to go home hungry!

Pros: 100% vegan, Wide ranging menu, Outdoor seating

Unbelievably delicious

Haven’t eaten here for years but it was equally, if not more delicious than that last time I went. Worth the trip to Manchester for the food alone.

Pros: Lots of options, Great quality, Friendly staff

Easy to book online, great service, the loaded doner kebab fries were 10/10.

Artwork and nuances kept my eyes busy but not overwhelmed, friendly atmosphere also.

Pros: all vegan, extensive drinks menu for drinkers and non, very very tasty and fairly quick

The Best!

Delicious! Best (vegan) comfort food with very friendly staff, who helped us choosing the right sauce :). Loved the whopper, wings with maple garlic and the classic loaded fries with secret sauce. The nacho- Hot Dog was good too, but the other stuff was better.

Eating everything on the menu in one day would be a great way to die.

I had the pizza burger and it was like having lunch and dinner in one sitting. 😆 They've clearly put a lot of thought and effort into their menu. Top quality ingredients. Delicious. £10 lunch deal was awesome value! Helpful customer service. Great vibe. Excellent seating options inside or out. Don't let me come back here without supervision. 😋🤤🍔🥞

Pros: Get in my belly you deliciousness!!!!, Lots of options., Reasonable prices.

Cons: Temptations 🍔🥞😈

Spoilt for choice!

Big big portions! I can never finish whatever I buy as I see the menu and get too excited and end up ordering too much so always end up taking things home 😂 All very delicious though and never disappoint.

I took my mum here and she didn't like the fact that it was vegan junk food since conventionally vegan usually has a healthy connotation...oops! I love it here though.

The environment is calm and there is lots of seating both outside and inside which I like. Brightly coloured walls, little wall with people's dog photos which is a cute concept🥺Also gender neutral toilets so everyone feels included.

I also love the satisfaction of knowing everything is 100% vegan! Helpful and friendly staff too :)

Honestly my day in Manchester started out as a disaster and V-Rev was EXACTLY what I needed to cheer me up. I decided to order a pint and burger for 10£. The draught beers were off at the time but they offered me a bottle in the deal instead of draught, which was good of them.

I ordered the spicy chicken burger (I can't remember the actual name). It was so good! Comes as just the burger but honestly, it was all I needed to satisfy my hunger.

The staff were really nice and seemed to enjoy being there as well which is really nice to see these days.


Pros: Fully vegan, Reasonable prices

Staff are not helpful.

We turned up on a disgustingly dirty day of horrid rain, went in at 1200.
We sat down, noting there were menus on tables.
No one attended to us until we were rudely told eventually that we have to order at the counter. We are not telepathic.
Nice burgers, but small...with tortilla chips...weird. Overpriced, no real chips, etc..unhealthy too.

Pros: vegan, tastes good

Cons: price is high, rudeness of a staff member., no chips..tortillas instead..bizarre

Try the garlic maple seitan wings!

I ended up visiting V-REV twice during my trip to Manchester.

It’s a quirky little restaurant that also doubles as a bar serving alcohol to outdoor benches along Edge St, and was exceptionally popular the days I was there (the hottest days of the year on record, lots of people wanting to quench their thirsts).

The food is great. I had small portions of mac n cheese, garlic maple seitan wings (which were lush) and a side salad first time I was in. Second time I had a double portion of wings and salad which almost defeated me, but I finished it all.

The menu is mainly junk style food; burgers etc. There are some lighter options and salads, a specials menu is available and had things like ciabattas on it. Dinner came in around £20 both visits, there’s a £5 lunch menu on it so time time your trip if you’re watching your budget.

Defo check it out. It’s only a few mins walk up High St from the Arndale Centre. It seems to get very busy at peak times so do think about booking in advance.

Pros: The food’s excellent, Lots to choose from including a £5 lunch menu, Specials are also available

Cons: Service can be slow, it’s popular at busy times,, But worth the wait so give yourself plenty time!

Nice hotdog

The food looks like a lot but isn’t sickly at all and I really enjoyed the mac and cheese hotdog. The service wasn’t very quick at the diner but it wasn’t bad. The drinks and desert were also good.

Pros: Good food, Nice area

Cons: Slow service

Talkin’ Bout a Revolution

Absolutely loved our visit to V Rev, so much so, it's now been added to my favourites. We shared the paint it mac hotdog, breaded jalapenos, buttermilk fried seitan chicken wings with Nashville hot sauce and the pancakes with chocolate sauce and sprinkles for our young son. The jumbo mac and cheese hotdog with bacon and secret sauce was simply stunning and incredibly moreish, while the breaded fried jalapenos were delicious and I particularly liked the southwest dipping sauce. The wings very well seasoned and very tasty but just lacked that chewy texture. Our son loved his pancakes but couldn't eat them all (bless), but thankfully we had enough room in the tank to both help devour them and what a treat they were. All in all a fantastic experience with very friendly staff and lovely atmosphere. We will definitely be visiting again.

Pros: Fantastic food , Vibe, Staff

Amazing, can't wait to go back!

This has quickly become a regular when in MCR, the staff are so lovely and the food is amazing, i love the Burrito Ora and the birthday shake, but, honestly, everything we have tried so far has been amazing! LGBTQIA+ friendly and nice art work around. Seating inside and out, dog friendly, highly recommend!

Pros: Loaded burgers, great food, big portions, Fully vegan and LGBTQIA+ inclusive & Dog friendly, Outside seating too , great atmosphere

Cons: toilet downstairs, not disabled-friendly, won't open back room if not busy/not enough staff
