ZINDIYA is a superb Indian eatery and bar created by husband and wife team, Shivani & Ajay Kenth, who have planned this venture since their teenage years. Their concept was to create an immersive experience of India – drinking chai or Limca, eating chaat and gol gappe, riding a rickshaw – in a casual and fun environment. Over 15 years later, the idea came to life with ZINDIYA. The name is derived from the Hindi word “Zindagi” meaning “life” and the couple’s daughters name Diya, which means light and splendour. The experience of the street markets of Indian cities such as Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata are like nothing on earth. Their exotic and bustling aura is unique and Shivani & Ajay wanted to bring a sense of that culture to the place they were born: Moseley. ZINDIYA is designed to look like a traditional street in any of these wonderful cities - colourful, distinctive and different to what we see over here. They have used local craftmen 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 – fresh and affordable. 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 expert 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 you fancy afternoon chai, a night out with friends or just a quick lunch, ZINDIYA's food and drink definitely brings a little bit of India into your life.

What an excellent little gem this place is. I’m Indian and have been to India many times... this place is very authentic to the street and restaurant food served in India. Every dish was fresh, beautifully spiced and tasty, the sort of place I’d be happy to bring my mum! An added bonus is that it’s very reasonable priced. The staff knew the food and were able to describe it perfectly. Highly recommend this place.

Family meal , drive from Coventry, after a recommendation.. we had somasa chat which was really nice. Our son had pani puri, and he didn’t like the sauce inside. We all then had Kati Rolls two chicken and one paneer. Which was all ok. One down side was the amigo chips which was covered in chilli sauce, which made the MOGO chips useless. we had a full refund on the chips. What you should do is offer a dip instead. So it would give you the option to put your chips in. The Masala tea was lovely. Environment was fantastic and staff were great.
