Perhaps my favourite cafe in Manchester. Although in a cellar next door to the Buddhist centre, it has not been a part of the centre for 5 years now. It still maintains the original Buddhist theme, with brass figurines of the Buddha and information about meditation to hand etc.
There is a mix of large and small wooden tables to sit at, as well as more intimate booths, perfect for a romantic occasion.
Always popular is the £6 food platter, which gets you 4 portions of food – up to 2 can be main courses, and the rest can be sides. There are always gluten free choices available. I tend to get the dahl, brown rice, carrot and apple salad, and roast potatoes. The one criticism I have is that the variety of the food served rarely changes: in other words, there is little variety.
Also available is an excellent smoothie and juice bar: I often go for the Green Queen so I don’t miss out on my dose of green fruit and veg.
I can’t remember ever having any of the cakes, though they look good. I rarely have enough room inside!
