8 of the best restaurants in Liverpool for a vegan scran


Liverpool is home to some of the best restaurants in the country, which means our vegan game is also on point.

Vegan food has come a long way since the days of a plate of chips or vegetables and can now even tempt your meat-eating friends and family.

If tasty food wasn’t reason enough, eating vegan or vegetarian a couple of times a week could have a huge environmental impact.

Last week, an independent review by the National Food Strategy recommended a reduction of meat intake by 30% over ten years to help solve climate change.

We spoke to some local, vegan-friendly restaurants, to help you decide which vegan dish to try next.

Whether you are a vegetarian, vegan, or just enjoy good food, it is time to tick some of these tasty dishes off your bucket list.


Kathal Lazeez (the jackfruit curry) by Sanskruti

Sanskruti is a vegetarian and vegan restaurant based on Bixteth Street offering authentic Indian cuisine.

The restaurant has everything you could want, from poppadoms and pickles to street food and a full thali.

They said: “Once you dine at Sanskruti you know that veganism is not about bland food.

“A lot of meat eaters are very sceptical when they first visit, but the flavours and authentic food wins them over and they become our regulars.”

One of their favourite vegan dishes is the Kathal Lazeez which is a delicious jackfruit curry.
