London-based vegan kebab shop What The Pitta is finally coming to Manchester with their 'biggest site yet' to open in January.


Founded in 2016, the iconic vegan kebab shop What The Pitta is slowly taking on the UK, and the North is next. With three sites in London and a fourth in Brighton, the vegan kebab chain has finally announced it is time to expand again.

The new vegan restaurant in Manchester will be the ‘biggest site yet’, with room for 80-100 diners. Owners Cem Yildiz and Rojdan Gul have snapped up space in the quirky Northern Quarter for their new restaurant, set to open on January 8th.

A far cry from its first small counter in the Boxpark Shoreditch, What The Pitta was recently named the UK’s number one kebab at the British Takeaway Awards.


‘Optimism for the future’

Discussing the new restaurant opening, co-owner Cem Yildiz said: “Manchester feels like a huge step forward for What The Pitta.

“The site will be our biggest brick and mortar site yet, and to finally open during what we hope is the tail end of this pandemic fills us with optimism for the future. Not just us, but hospitality as a whole.

“Manchester is my favourite city outside of London, with such an incredible food scene. We can’t wait to be a part of that and hope the city welcomes us with open arms ready for their vegan kebabs.”

On the menu

What The Pitta’s signature kebabs emerged when its founders brought life to an old family recipe using the flavours of Berlin. But their menu features much more than just a traditional kebab.

Aside from their vegan doner wrap packed with spiced soya pieces, mixed salad, houmous, tzatziki and jalapenos, they also offer vegan gyros, falafel, a doner chip box, a mezze box, and a mini snack box. On the side, you can order paprika fries, waffle fries, onion rings and even vegan nuggets. What’s not to love?!
