If you like restaurants with a vibrant atmosphere – along with superb quality food – then Zouk Tea Bar and Grill is the place for you. Based on a side street, just off the central area of the Oxford Road Corridor, Zouk serves up authentic Indian and Pakistani cuisine with all of the excitement and energy you’d expect from one of the city’s top restaurants.

You can expect hearty dishes packed with traditional flavours and unbeatable skills from the kitchen’s expert chefs. This Manchester favourite has been around for almost a decade and counts high-profile figures as varied as Drake and Peter Kaye as regulars. 

There’s a main menu with all the traditional dishes you can imagine, plus a few more eye-catching options you won’t find anywhere else, as well as a Sunday Roast menu for a more aromatic take on the British favourite. 

We recommend dining at Zouk with a group of friends or family to make the most of the exciting feel of this modern space. Start with a handful of small plates to share, then move on to main courses such as the much-loved karahi, handi and biryani dishes. All the classics are available too, including a gloriously creamy take on the chicken korma and the must-try butter chicken curry. 

And if you’re looking to wind down after your meal, Zouk also has an outdoor terrace featuring one of the finest shisha lounges in Manchester.
