New healthy lunch menu at Zaika

Eating Indian doesn’t always have to be heavy

Published on May 3rd 2011.

New healthy lunch menu at Zaika

The Great Northern Tower restaurant is launching a new healthy eating menu, and hopes its lighter options will add a welcome bit of spice to the working lunch.

For many, dining at an Indian restaurant means gorging on filling curries and guzzling Eastern lager. But from 1 May, Zaika will be offering a selection of new dishes specially designed to be lighter and healthier – perfect for a working lunch.

With everything from rump steak in Oriental spices to char grilled tender lamb chops, and prices starting at just £6.95, it’s easy to work up an appetite.

White fish fillet marinated in spicy basil sauce and steamed, served with Indian salsa pilau rice or naan bread, is just one example of how Zaika is challenging the misconceptions and providing traditional Indian cuisine that won’t leave you heavy in the afternoon.

Other enticing options include Chicken leg roasted with green chilli and coriander served with Indian salad and lime, Chicken wing marinated in spices and herbs and char grilled, and for vegetarians there’s Mixed vegetables cooked with spices and herbs served with pilau rice and naan bread.

The name ‘Zaika’ translates as ‘sense of taste’ and this is the ethos behind the innovative menu. It incorporates traditional, classic and original dishes that apply Eastern flavours with a western slant.

Zaika is located at the base of Great Northern Tower, overlooking Great Northern Square, which fronts both Deansgate and Peter Street.
