Little Aladdin is a takeaway that has been around for many years. Situated on High Street, opposite Dough and around the corner from the Arndale Centre, Little Aladdin transitioned to become the first 100% vegan takeaway in the city centre in 2016. It's not ashamed to be vegan either, with a large sandwich board outside the shop proclaiming that it is vegan and proud.

This gem serves a range of 15 different vegan curries, including Manchester's famous rice & 3 curries for £4.99. There is a choice of 3 different burgers - soya, spicy bean and vegetable. Also offered is a variety of falafel/tofu/bhaji/chip wraps, vegan naan breads, Indian starters, and of course onion rings. There's even vegan mayonnaise for your chips and burgers.

Little Alladin has fast become my go to place for a cheap bite to eat either on my lunch at work or if I have some time to kill in the evening in town.

  1. What did you eat? How much was it? Was it good? How big are the portions? We need to know :)

    1. There's a menu there so you can see, but I had the soya burger meal with chips and a drink all for £4.99.

  2. Got to say I went here very excited to try the menu and the food was not good.. bland and not properly heated with soggy bhajis. Maybe got them on a bad day

  3. Good portion size... certainly comparable to the other rice n three places.

    The kidney bean curry is awesome. I took my non veg*n partner and she didn't notice it was all vegan.

  5. Manchester is a city like no other: leading the way in music, arts and entertainments. Cosmopolitan, edgy, and happening: spend any time in Manchester and you'll soon see it's a place like no other. The city has long-transformed itself from industrial heavyweight to a commercial and exciting city centre. With dozens of galleries and museums plus terrific shops and restaurants, may people would say it's the north's finest city. This free-spirited, dynamic city demands your attention and will win your heart with a warm welcome and a liberating open-mindedness. tidy up website
