About Zouk Manchester
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.
Service was quite poor, but food was good
Very good value for money with the Tiffin boxes. Service extremely slow from ordering, to arrival of food and waiting to pay for the bill. However good location and food is worth the wait.
Wonderful curries as usual. Well above standard Indian restaurant food.
Slow to start with getting drinks but Good cocktails! Good came fast but tikka masala is not a masala- far too spicey so disappointed as couldn’t eat it
Food was amazing, however, the service wasn't great, the table was small for 5 people and the waiters were grumpy. I asked for the dessert menu after 30 min waiting, another employee approached to say that they don't have a dessert menu.
Food was good, nobody else commented but I felt the food could have been hotter, especially the starter - there was a group of us maybe this is the reason. I didn’t like the recommended tip neither did anyone on the table, we usually tip and we did last night. That should be a choice not a suggestion especially with the amount you added on felt it was quite cheeky to the point I’m not sure I’d return.
Food was great but service could be quicker, we waited nearly 15mins before anyone even came over to our table. That said the waitress was great.
Hi, I have been to Zouk many times and have always found everything to be spot on. On Friday we found the service to be terrible, starter plates not cleared before mains arrived, no big plates for mains we had to use side plates, empty glasses and bottles not cleared so we had very limited room on the table.
Hi we had a lovely evening apart from 2 family members finding plastic in there food and one of them was heavily pregnant apart from that the staff were great the atmosphere was great just a bit of putting finding plastic in your food
Been here many times during the week and not too busy. Went Saturday night and it was absolutely packed everywhere. Food was fantastic, really great quality, nothing like a typical Indian at all. Great choice of different dishes.
Service was odd - communal dishes plonked on individual’s plates and empty dishes not taken away, no serving spoons provided etc. But food delicious and team friendly so enjoyed the meal.
Excellent as always!
Fantastic service, customer service. Food, ambience and I would definitely come back if in Manchester again
Had a lovely time. Only thing that ruined it was the waiter. I asked for service charge to be taken off as I like to have free will on what service charge is given. We was dining as friends so would have given him more than the £10 charge. He then proceeded to ask why big not in was there a problem it was more abrupt. Totally ruined our evening.
The food is good... can’t say the same about the pillar cocktail that was supposed to taste pineapple, but tasted nothing like pineapple... overall the place is nice, good atmosphere, friendly staff and prompt service. I will definitely come back to try the sisha.
Food was great, nice atmosphere. Would definitely return!
Great food, terrible service
Great roast chicken for sunday lunch.
Loved the vegetarian options, and awesome service from the staff.
Having visited your restaurant in Bradford for many years it was my birthday so we decided to come thro to Manchester to celebrate.The food and service were excellent.
Sunday roast advert was incorrect
Been there several times, love the atmosphere, the variety of food could be more.
Lamb steak was gorgeous
Amazing experience all round, will definitely be back very soon
