Zindiya is an Indian street food and cocktail restaurant on Woodbridge Road in the heart of Moseley Village.
The independent restaurant, also has a comprehensive cocktail menu designed by noted bar wizard Robert Wood from 40 St Pauls, The Wilderness and his newest venture, Smultronställe.
The menu includes authentic Bhel Puri, a spicy snack sold on carts throughout India and Papri Chaat, a perfect blend of sweet and tangy flavours with creamy and crunchy textures traditionally prepared using dough wafers, chickpeas, potatoes, yoghurt and tamarind chutney.
All of their dishes are designed as sharers and small plates and are priced as such with the most expensive dish on the menu costing only £8.
The owners, Shivani and Ajay, bring the tastes of the famous Paranthe Wali Gali in Delhi to the streets of Moseley. They serve fresh Indian flatbread with different fillings as a weekend treat.
In addition to this, Zindiya take bookings for their Indian inspired afternoon tea which includes a selection of savoury bites and sweet delights such as sandwich pakoras and cardamom scones with masala tea and their chai infused prosecco, which features on the cocktail menu created by Robert Wood.
The food is served as small, tapas style plates, the same as you would get on the streets of India, and it allows people to share a few plates and bring down the cost, perfect for those who want something quality but affordable. A bit of Indian colour, vibrancy and value in Moseley.
From The Owners
Zindiya was born out of our love for Indian street food gained on our many visits there and of course our Indian heritage from which we learnt so much about spices and flavours. From dosas to chaat, from chai to kati rolls, we wanted to bring an authentic taste of the Indian sub continent to the streets of Birmingham.
Our home is designed to look like a traditional street in any of these wonderful cities, colourful, distinctive and different to what we see over here. We have used local crafters and artists to create a setting that is bright, immersive and most of all, fun but in keeping with the real essence of what Indian street cooking is all about.
The sights, smells and colours of street markets of Indian cities such as Mumbai and Kolkata are unique, their exotic and bustling aura is like no other and we wanted to bring a sense of that culture to the place we were born, Moseley.
There is seating for 90 people, including covered rickshaw booths and a bar area which has the finest cocktail range in the village, designed by cocktail legend Robert Wood, alongside local craft beers, hand selected wines from Birmingham’s oldest wine merchant Connolly’s and sweets from the delicious Miss Macaroon.
Whether it’s afternoon chai or a night out with friends, our food and drink will bring a little spice in to your life.
