Manchester is jam-packed with world-class theatres, hosting everything from musicals, comedy nights, ballet and highbrow plays. But we all know the most important part of any night out is the pre-show meal – after all, no one wants to sit through an onstage event with a rumbling tummy. This is where Zouk, Manchester’s leading Indian and Pakistani restaurant, comes into play. It’s based across the road from the stunning Palace Theatre and within walking distance of all Manchester’s major venues but best of all, it offers up a varied – and affordable – pre-theatre menu, every single night of the week. Available from 5 – 7pm, customers can choose from two courses for £15.95 or three courses for £19.95, each with complimentary popadoms and the locally-renowned Zouk pickle tray. Starters include mouthwatering classics like falafel and crispy calamari – but the aromatic chilo kebab is a must for fans of delicately-spiced lamb. Mains range from the traditional chicken jalfrezi and butter chicken curries to schwarma or the signature Zouk burger, not to mention the must-try Mumbai mess for dessert. Best of all? Zouk is certified carbon-free, planting hundreds of trees each month to offset their carbon footprint, meaning you can enjoy the city’s finest Indian cuisine guilt-free.
