Some of Greater Manchester’s finest Indian restaurants are coming together for a one-off outdoor curry club at Cathedral Gardens later this year.

Bundobust and Dishoom will join Lily’s (Ashton), Aunty Ji’s (Levenshulme) and Sanskruti (Burnage) in hosting the special South Asian feast – which is set to take place in autumn.

The first of Manchester Food and Drink Festival’s ‘Hub Takeover’ events to be revealed so far, the night will see each kitchen put a street food twist on their favourite dishes.

Dishes will include chaats, Gujariti specialities and amazing sides, before finishing off with Lily’s legendary handmade sweets.

Keeping things authentic, absolutely everything on the menu will be vegetarian or vegan.


The one-off night will be soundtracked by Manchester’s own Desi Jockeys playing an uplifting mix of Bollywood, Bhangra and British chart sounds.

Taking place on September 21, the event will start at 7.00pm and include a welcome drink and a three-course collaborative menu.


Tickets are priced at £40 per person and are available to buy from the Manchester Food and Drink website now.

This year’s MFDF festival runs from September 16 – 27.
