Recipe for success - Edit

It's a trek for me to get to Chorlton for a pizza but it's always worth it. Just perfect. Please open one in the Manchester city centre, there is definitely a market for good and affordable vegan pizza, the only offerings , aside from Rudy's which is still too limited for vegans, are overpriced and substandard. Love you guys for opening this place!

Pros: Everything

Cons: Location (and a pro for many people)

Pure magic! - Edit

Pizza cheese is next level. If you want a 'real' pizza, this is the place for you.

Top, top stuff :) - Edit

Love Zads - been a few times including opening day and love having something local to satisfy our pizza cravings. Everyone's always nice, friendly and chatty there too. Best of all it's all vegan and plant based! Cheesy garlic bread is my fave, the pizzas are always good and the burgers are delicious. Open til 11 too which is AMAZING as we always rack up around 10pm lol

Pros: Open til late, Cheesy garlic bread, Zads burger is a beast

Cons: None

Just what I've been looking for - Edit

Had some really great vegan pizzas, but this is the first time I've had a real takeaway pizza that was completely vegan! The fact that it was just like buying it from any other pizza shop, but vegan makes me so happy. I really want to go back and try out some of the other things that aren't pizza, and try out some of the other vegan pizzas too! The staff were really great too!

Pros: Completely vegan, Inexpensive , Friendly staff

Cons: Don't yet deliver

Best Vegan pizza we have tasted! - Edit

We drove a 90 mile round trip to sample the delights of Zad's after reading other reviews and it was totally worth it!
The queue was to the door when we got there, the phone was ringing none stop and they had already started running out of pizza bases they were so busy. The staff were lovely and friendly and we ordered a ton of food because we were spoilt for choice.
Definite favourite was the Vegan Gains pizza, and we sampled the cupcakes too which were totally yummy.
There are a few tables outside and a couple inside to eat and all were full. All the customers were chatty and happy, it must be the yummy food :) big up the Vegans!

Pros: pizza bases, yummy sauce, price

Cons: needs to be bigger :)

Dream come true.. - Edit

I can't believe this place exists. If you're looking for kale and quinoa and uber healthy vegan food, this isn't the place but if you're looking for some good, hearty take away food that just happens to not hurt animals in the process, then this is it. I love everything about it. The decor is inviting and clean looking. The staff are always on the ball and willing to answer any of your questions. The food is exactly how I've always had standard take away food but better, healthier and less guilt inducing. The equipment just looks impressive. The staff just know what they're doing.My favourite menu item is the Seitan BBQ pizza and also onion rings and also the Hawaiian and also the Zad burger. It's proper take away food not pretentious bistro style food that pretends to be something it's not. My only constructive advice would be to offer meal deals or special offers. Can't say anything more other than I still can't believe this place exists.

Super pizza! - Edit

Enjoyed and quickly devoured our pizzas from here (The Revolution and Vegan Gains). Usually a little scared of vegan 'cheese', but whatever it was that they use on their pizzas is actually rather delish. Crispy yummers pizza bases (as good as any we recently gorged on in Italy), and the toppings (inc. seitan!!) were scrumptious. Fast service, friendly staff. We're lucky as we only live a ten minute walk away from their premises (hurrah!), but I'd say it's worth travelling to anyway. We'll be back, often :-)

Updated from previous review on 2017-08-16

Pros: Cruelty free!, Healthier than your average take-away! , Nailed the vegan cheese! -Yummers pizza.

Cons: Only one Zad's exists as of yet..

Vegan junk food at its finest - Edit

Let me start with the chicken burger which is the best I've had. The hotdog was also a winner. The burgers are good but I think V Rev have better. The pizza is also good. Great base and toppings. Not bad vegan cheese either. The vegan cup cakes are delicious!

Amazing vegan food and friendly staff - Edit

I used to live quite close to Chorlton until recently, but I moved to the other side of the city a few weeks ago. Since then, I have made two long journeys specifically to get takeaway from Zad's. The pizzas, cheesy garlic bread, and 'chicken' nuggets are all fantastic, and if you get the Pig Save pizza, a portion of the profits go to an animal charity. I wish I could eat here every day.

Pros: Fantastic food, Reasonable prices, Friendly staff

Cons: None.

Zad's changed my life forever - Edit

When I arrived home cold and wet late one Manchester evening to find my housemate stood in the kitchen holding Zad's cheesy chips, I was suspicious, having only had Sainsbury's shitty vegan cheese in the past. BUT ZAD'S BLEW MY MIND. Amazing, delicious, melty cheese that tastes just like the real deal. Chips also 10/10. Amazing. Thank god they don't deliver yet otherwise my waste line wouldn't be able to cope! We have now agreed that Zad's will be a weekly occurrence. I can't wait to try the whole menu!! THANK YOU ZAD'S

Just what was needed! - Edit

So happy this has joined the growing number of fully vegan eateries in Manchester. It's exactly what i needed - dirty tasting (but actually not dirty!) takeaway pizza on a hungover Sunday. Keep up the hard work guys, it's going to be huuuuuge once everyone's cottoned on ;-)

Pros: Fully vegan, Good prices, Lots of choices

Cons: Not really a con, but they were seriously busy and

Very Nice! - Edit

Place is very nice and confy but remember that this is a take away so they gave your pizza in a box and theres not too much space plus no toilet. You got many options of pizza plus chicken nuggets,hot dog,burger,chips and onion rings which make this place even better! Pizzas and burgers are tasty and i know i will visit this place many times.

Pros: many options of pizza, confy place, deliver

Cons: a little bit too much cheese

Delicious vegan pizza! - Edit

What a great addition to Manchester's vegan scene! The menu is mostly pizzas, and they are very good indeed. I had the pepperoni one, and my partner had the pig save, with lots of mock meat/proteins on top - both were delicious and the cheese was especially good. The onion rings were also really nice. I wish I'd been able to try more things from the menu - including the cupcakes, which looked delicious!

There were two indoor tables with four chairs each, and two huge outdoor tables, so if it's not local enough to get takeaway you'll be able to eat in too.

Pros: Excellent pizza, Friendly staff, Reasonably priced

the Future is here - Edit

This is a milestone in the end of carnism. The staff are all passionate Vegan activists and the business is fundamentally activism. The most important thing to assist people in making the right choices is giving them convenient ethical options... And this is a McDonald's, Dominos & cupcake stall all wrapped into one but with none of the preformed cholesterol or animal exploitation. Can see this blowing up into a national franchise fast as the demand increases with it. Would make no sense for anyone to order a pizza from dominos when the prices here are better, the food tastes better (and uses a lot of the same equipment as a dominos) and is healthier, ethical & more harmonious with the planet.

Pros: It's activism, It's very professionally run, it tastes great

Cons: needs to be more of them across the country

Wish I lived closer! - Edit

I love how I can order anything without worrying! As a lifelong veggie who turned vegan June 2016 I hadn't had takeaway for at least 2 years due to most takeaways frying chips with chicken and worrying about meat on my pizza/staff not washing hands/pizza cutters after handling meat.

Unfortunately I don't live in delivery distance and had to drive for half an hour each way on the motorway but it was worth it! The pizza sauce was great, generous amounts of cheese were given and the pizza base was perfect; soft but crunchy! My boyfriend opted for cheesy garlic bread because he's a very fussy eater and was worried he wouldn't like the vegan meat and he enjoyed it!

The packaging for the fries was from vegwares and is fully compostable/biodegradable!

Will visit again at some point for a burger!

Pros: Lovely staff, Newly refurbished , Sheltered benches outside for those who travel far

Cons: Too far from my house!
