Well, maybe I was expecting to much but... The food was dry, overcooked and much tooo salty! Place was quite busy and only 2 ppl around so we were waiting for a long time to place an order also desert was served 40 minutes after mains.... So we were dying to leave really. Ramen tasted like a solty mushroom chicken soup, and my banana blossom fish was so dry and hard that I could not even cut it with the knife.. I would not recommend the allotment to anyone. And actually I'm very very disappointed. Place looks nice tho
Really glad we chose allotment as our first meal out after lockdown. Some amazing flavours, the pea pesto, cauliflower popcorn and tacos. So much better than the average vegan offerings in most restaurants. The deserts were super tasty too.
Lovely place, great service. My Laksa was beautiful. The fish and chips that my husband and daughters ordered had a mixed review, but that was down to personal taste. Puddings were on the small side and my cheese cake didn’t taste of vanilla, not a particularly pleasant taste. My daughter loved her chocolate hazelnut desert. Overall we had a very pleasant evening.
Great ambience, great food. The curry had a great kick!
Great atmosphere, very nice decor and good food. We’ve been served very fast, portions are quite big after starters we’ve been struggling to finish main dishes. Tacos are amazing, prices are quite high but service is up to high standards so money well spent 👌
Exceptional service, the staff here are passionate, genuine and friendly, the wine and food brilliant 👌🏻
Great service, friendly staff. Amazing food. Thank you
I cane in on 04/07 quite anxious about being out again, but the staff at The Allotment were so welcoming and asserted in their hygiene practises that I immediately relaxed and enjoyed a lovely meal (as always) in a wonderful environment. Thank you.
Visited this beautiful little place in the city centre.. the inteor is relaxing and modern.
The service and product knowledge was exceptional we vegans like to know every little thing about our food.
Took a none vegan with me and she was blown away by the choice and flavours of the amazing food.
Its very hard to find somewhere where you can relax as a vegan with friends and not made to feel ODD OR FREAKY because of our diet choices.
I can't praise this place enough a lot of thought has gone Into this place to make it the COMPLETE PACKAGE.
Absolutely wonderful place to eat. Superb food, lovely atmosphere, great service!
Thank you - lovely night, excellent food - we will definitely be back.
I was really excited about visiting but was massively disappointed. The starter was fine. Sent back the main course twice as it wasn't cooked, the third main was ok. Didn't brave pudding. Staff were very helpful but getting their attention wasn't easy and the place would benefit the owners introducing simple touches getting waiters to go back to a table and ask how the food is or looking around the dining area.
We had a great time and great food
The staff were very nice and friendly
We had made a special trip into Manchester to the restaurant and we weren't disappointed
Honestly some of the best food I’ve ever had. Will definitely be returning!!
I adore this restaurant! Fantastic staff, lovely atmosphere and amazing small and large plates of delicious food. The only reason I didn't give outstanding for the food was simply as the desserts have been a little disappointing compared to everything else. Wouldn't stop me returning though but would just stick to savoury :-)
dishes defined by their jaw dropping creativity, intriguing presentation and flavour explosion. Unusual cocktails on offer are also worth exploring. Very nice and peaceful environment with helpful, friendly and dedicated service.
Better than expected! Wholesome vegan food 👍 will be back for sure
Amazing food and really friendly staff, will recommend to friends and will definitely be returning.
This restaurant never disappoints.lovely quiet atmosphere for lunch. And every mouthful was delicious. Always hard to choose what to have here. Ended up with the cauliflower wings with that delicious dipping sauce to start, the fish and chips made out of banana blossom for main and apricot cheesecake for sweet, all washed down with an almond milk latte. The best lunch out I have had since I last ate here. Prices are reasonable too and servers are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. I only visit here a couple of times a year, but that's because I live in Essex. It's a must when I visit Manchester and I always plan a meal at this restaurant during my visit.
Beautiful restaurant with fabulous food and super friendly service. Will definitely be back.
Loved our meal here. The decor is lovely and unpretentious, the waiters were friendly and attentive and the food was amazing. I had the laksa and the friend had the buddha bowl - both were incredible. The cauliflower starter was to die for.
Couldn't recommend it more.
The food was amazing, service was great and it was good value for money. Will be returning for sure!
Hi Tyler, Thank you for your 5* review. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Many thanks The Allotment
This was my first time dining with you and I will most definitely be back. I ordered the ‘Fish & Chips’ and the Hazelnut Slice. The food was out of this world! I have a lot of intolerances and felt safe eating with you. The staff were very attentive and friendly. Can’t wait to come back!! Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.
Hi Erin, Thank you for your very kind 5* review. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Many thanks The Allotment
Clean tasty healthy food. Perhaps a little on the small side for the cost.
Poor service with very average food was very disappointing.
We had the 10 course taster meal. Absolutely amazing, one to the best meals we have ever had. We will definitely be going back.
Hi Alice, Thank you for your lovely feedback, we look forward to seeing you again soon. Many thanks The Allotment
Tamarind tofu was bland and just 4 small pieces of tofu. Cauliflower wings had a nice flavour but were a bit soggy. Jackfruit tacos were bland, just a mass of tomatoey jackfruit with a tiny portion of guacamole and salsa on the side - could have done with more variety of flavours. The ramen was nice and the tofu in that was lovely. Overall we were a bit disappointed. The service was great though.
I'm allergic to nuts and there weren't any desserts without nuts so I couldn't have one. Please can you make at least one dessert nut free as lots of people who come to your restaurant I imagine have allergies. That's why I come... I'm not vegan but I have lots of allergies.
Hi Helen, I am so sorry that you were unable to have a dessert on this occasion. I will pass on your feedback to our head chef. Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to make nut free desserts when we are a gluten free, vegan restaurant. However, we will do our best to change this. Many thanks The Allotment
Lovely to have vegan and choices. Definitely will visit again when in Manchester.
Hi Bev, Thank you for your feedback, we look forward to seeing you again soon. Many thanks The Allotment
The food was really disappointing- the service was keen and friendly, but pretty disjointed and not particularly professional.
Change of chef? Lunchtime chef? Don’t know, first visit based on reputation, I wouldn’t come back.
Hi, We are really sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your time with us. If you would like to get in touch please do not hesitate to contact the restaurant email@example.com Many thanks The Allotment
Great Vegan eatery and a bonus as all gluten free and hadn’t realised. Only had a main because we were so full and couldn’t stay for long. Will be back!
Hi Rebecca, Thank you for your feedback. We are trying to push the fact that we are gluten free but many people still don't know it! See you soon The Allotment
Imaginative menu showcasing what can be done with plant ingredients. All served up with friendly service.
Hi Steve, Thank you for your kind words! We look forward to seeing you again. Many thanks The Allotment
When The Allotment was based in Stockport, the food was outstanding and the service was excellent.
We have visited The Allotment in Manchester City Centre around 3 or 4 times now. It’s definitely not what it used to be. On previous visits, there were no cocktails available and there were a few items on the menu that were unavailable.
I had high hopes for this visit with them having recently had a menu update and having not visited for a while. When booking a table online, it stated there was only ‘bar seating’ available as the main area was fully booked. I messaged the restaurant and they advised to add a note to our reservation stating that we wanted to be seated in the restaurant and they should be able to accommodate us, which I was really pleased about.
Upon arriving at the restaurant, we were seated quickly, however I did notice that there were plenty of tables available. Definitely not fully booked. It took longer than expected for our order to be taken, approximately 20 minutes. This time there were 5 cocktails to choose from, one of which I ordered and was quite nice. Before ordering our food, we were advised that the fryer had gone down so some menu items would be unavailable. Considering there are quite a few items on the menu that require a fryer, investing in a second fryer would definitely be beneficial, especially as everything my husband wanted to order he could no longer order and was a bit stuck with what to choose.
The food was quite tasty but I wasn’t bowled over. We had to ask for water for the table and we weren’t asked whether we wanted more drinks.
The staff in general just didn’t seem to have much enthusiasm in relation to the food or the restaurant itself, a bit of a let down.
It’s a shame because the venue itself is nice and well located and I really hope this place sticks around as there are not many ‘fine dining’ vegan/vegetarian restaurants in Manchester. The service and food has to improve though.
Great staff fantastic food great place to go 5*................,...................
Lovely meal but service was poor. Even though it was not busy it took a while for someone to take the drinks and good order. Was then told certain items were not available even though it was early. That said the food is amazing so would still go back
Disappointed. It was not good value for money. Avoid.
We had booked prior to coming to Manchester as we'd come from London. We were both a bit disappointed as the menu both on the website and in the restaurant hadn't mentioned any sesame seed oil or seed usage with the food. My partner is highly allergic to sesame seeds and we were quite annoyed that we had come all the way from London to not be able to eat most of the things. However, I was happy with my meal but unfortunately for my partner they weren't happy and it wasn't a great first valentines day. I think it would be very helpful to list all allergens on the menu online and in the restaurant so people are aware or have alternative oils to cook the food in. It's a good job we asked as well as no one had asked us!
Hi, Thank you for your feedback, we will be taking time to do some further training with our staff with regards to allergies. I apologise as this shouldn't be happening as we do get a lot of people with allergies coming to us as we are vegan and gluten free. Many thanks The Allotment
We ate here last year and it was outstanding - amazing food and service that matched - we were really looking forward to our return visit. This year was not great. Everything was average at best.
I found the restaurant underwhelming following the impression given by the website. Unsure if linked to the fact the restaurant is underground/below street level, the entire place was freezing and the decor very basic/cheap. (Sorry- I really wanted to like it!) Credit to the staff who were super polite and friendly- 5* for them! The food was more street style than I expected and to be honest I struggled to find something that grabbed me on the menu. Albeit my husband demolished all his so kudos to the chef, it might just be my tastebuds. I would say go, for sure; but stick on your comfies (inc a jumper!) and appreciate it’s gonna be tasty, not fancy x
Lovely venue. Food was delicious. Not a great choice on desserts. Would have liked to see fresh fruit, but the hazelnut tart was great. We'll go again and my daughter is there tonight!
