About Zouk Manchester
Description brought to you by Manchester Confidential:
Contemporary Indian curry and grill house.
Zouk’s Asian restaurant specialises in 'apna', or home style cooking which Confidential’s Mark Garner describes as ‘shot through with colour and heat from the spices and herbs’. But there’s plenty to please conservative palates with a menu that includes seafood (king prawns, haddock, tiger prawn, scallops, cooked with pomegranate & coriander seeds) cooked on a ‘water grill’ (which steams and grills at the same time). Slow-cooked curries include the aniseedy lamb nihari; a thrill for any meat lover. Be warned: some dishes are strictly for the connoisseur. Garner describes megaz (or brains) as a kind of ‘Eastern haggis with the heat from the chillies and bucketloads of ground spices”’ while paya are sheeps hooves which ‘melt off the bone into fragrant broth’. Start with Punjabi lollipops (chicken and prawn dipped in pomegranate) and enjoy a hookah or two under the canopy outside. The large, purpose-built space and tasteful lighting lends an unexpected nobility to this always-busy restaurant.
really good food and athmosphere
All good. Thanks
Service not great.
Shisha flavour needs improving
Lovely food, had to ask twice for a drink but otherwise really nice!
Absolutely appalled, when you guys have been highly recommend from so many people, the service was SHOCKING!! We had to ask for things numerous time, not moving the popadom plates when you served our starters, rude waiters, having to ask numerous times & numerous staff members for drinks & not to mention it was freezing. Considering we spent £175 I really am disgusted in the service!! I only didn’t complain as it was an early Christmas meal with my family, but needless to say it’s left me with a hole in my pocket.. which if it was spot on I was happy to pay, but experiencing what I did?! Not happy!!!
The waiter who served us was a bit rude and pushy. We felt rushed to order when he was stood at the side of the table rolling his eyes and when we tried to order drinks, he kept asking us for our food orders. When the drinks arrived, two of them were missing. The table where we sat had an awful draught so it was a bit uncomfortable at times. The chefs in the kitchen were brilliant and friendly and the food was fantastic. For that reason I would return to Zouk.
Food needs to be served quicker
slightly unfriendly service
food was nice but went cold very quickly and the service was absolutely appalling, staff were miserable
Service was very slow. We asked for the pre theatre menu as we were going to the theatre. We had a 10 minutes wait before the order was taken. Poppadoms arrived before drinks. There was a 25 minute wait between starters and mains. We had to ask twice for the mains as we were running out of time to get to the theatre. We only then had 10 minutes to eat before having to leave. The food was lovely but I would have preferred to enjoy it properly. if you can't service a pre theatre menu perhaps don't offer it?
We enjoyed an excellent pre-theatre meal recently. Zouk is our regular pre-theatre restaurant. The staff ensure that we are served speedily so that we are in time for our shows. We have also enjoyed leisurely meals when not in a hurry. We love Zouk.
Great service - thanks.
We got seated straight away which was fine, but we had a chair missing. We asked 4 members of staff to bring us a chair but no one got back to us. Eventually we asked another gentleman and he got one straight away. The waiter taking our order was rude and kept putting his hand up for us to stop talking, the food came, well some of it didn’t come we had to keep asking. The drinks were just full of ice. For £5.99, you’d expect a bit more than just syrup and ice. We told the waiter to take off a few things from the bill as we didn’t get them! And ofcourse they “forgot” and we checked the bill ourselves. Won’t be going back to zouk which is a shame as I really like the venue and the atmosphere at zouk!
Lovely family meal for the zouk lunch tiffin. Our waiter was friendly and attentive, good atmosphere, the food was delicious, we just wish the portions were slightly bigger.
Tasty food elegantly presented on sophisticated surroundings. E celebrate!
Service could be more organised, not exactly busy when we visited. Food very good
The music could’ve been better but other than that everything from staff to food to affordability was on point.
Great service - enjoyed my birthday there and the staff were very accommodating
An excellent time was had by all, we will be returning here
Food was very nice and came quick
Fantastic, thank you very much.
Didn’t like the chicken steak at all.
