Well, it’s certainly crept up on us this year folks—but Christmas day is just around the corner.

Revealing their own plans for the festivities, Zouk will be serving up authentic Indian dishes that’ll no doubt offer some much-needed warmth right throughout the chillier months.

Whether it’s a hearty lunch, flavour-packed banquet or Christmas Day dining, the Chester Street spot has you covered.

Zouk’s Tiffin Lunch

Two curries, a starter, fluffy pilau rice and a freshly baked naan bread all served on a festive platter for just £12.50 make this the perfect lunchtime treat.

Throughout December the Tiffin menu will change weekly, featuring curries like Chicken Lmlee, Laal Maas and Lamb Karahi alongside vegetarian options which include Palak Paneer and Chole Masala.

Party Banquets 

In India, a party isn’t a party until the food arrives—and that’s the sentiment that has been called upon for Zouk’s banquet menu.

Designed to be shared with friends and family, each course delivers an explosion of flavours. Menus have been crafted to suit a variety of budgets and taste, catering for meat-eaters, vegetarians and vegans alike.

Prices start at £23 per head. Dishes typically include a mix off popadoms, starters, main courses & sides as well as desserts, all of which are served on platters and in traditional curry dishes, making them an ideal choice for group events.
