Manju is a bijou family run vegetarian Indian restaurant, nestled in the bustling & vibrant North Laines. Our restaurant is borne out of the family feasts we enjoyed as children. My mother Manju’s cooking gained its reputation far & wide through these feasts. Her love of cooking & insistence on making everything from scratch, by hand & with love meant a huge number of people made every effort to get their invitation to the celebration.
What sets our food apart from other establishments is that continued attention to detail. Absolutely everything on our menu is home cooked to the same family recipes, passed down from mother to daughter, in the traditional way. We wish to preserve the dying art of the peripheral snacks & pickles, which are all too often shop bought as they are fiddly & time consuming to make. This we feel is a great cultural loss & does not do our cuisine justice. All the food we serve is the same food, served with love, which we ate as children & continue to eat today. We wish to share these delicacies with you.
