Indian Afternoon Tea at Ziya

Afternoon Tea? Cucumber sandwiches followed by fresh scones with cream? Little did I know that this British tradition stretches right across the Indian Ocean.


Situated in the heart of Manchester’s famous curry mile, is a restaurant with a difference…offering far more than a classic vindaloo!

Ziya is an Indian restaurant offering traditional Indian dishes that we know and love but also an extensive menu of the new craze of Indian street food… small plates cooked in the tandoori open kitchen just how mamma made it!

They’ve recently introduced Indian afternoon tea – a selection of the best from the street food menu. Sticking with tradition we start the experience with a glass of Prosecco, but if that doesn’t hit the spot for you then the mango mocktails are definitely worth checking out.

Food comes displayed on a piled up cake stand, each layer giving an explosion of different Indian flavours. Dosa pancakes stuffed with chicken followed by Sev Puri, a pastry topped with chutney and potatoes. Have I got your taste buds going yet? Finish off with sweet beetroot and a selection of teas!


A pleasant surprise and an experience highly recommended….and if this isn’t your thing, then the curries are pretty good too!
