An independent Gujarati-influenced café is set to give MediaCityUK’s eatery and takeaway scene a boost.

The award-winning Chapati Café will bring its exotic concept to MediaCityUK’s Blue Road, alongside independents: Grindsmith Coffee, plant based eatery – Vertigo plant, Flanagan’s Barbers and the much anticipated General Store.

Chapati Cafe says it takes its inspiration from traditional homestyle Indian food, influenced by the Gujarat region which is famous for its light, invigorating curries and delicious vegetarian dishes.

Each week, it will offer a variety of aromatic and authentic ‘homestyle’ curries with vegetarian and meat options available.

Priti Chauhan-Hall, Owner and Director of Chapati Café said:

“We are very excited to bring a brand-new takeaway and dining option to MediaCityUK. Our values and dishes are all centred around family, home and community and we’re very much looking forward to being immersed within the growing MediaCityUK community.”

Making it a great option for workers, residents and visitors in MediaCityUK who want to grab and go on a quick-lunch break the Chapati Café team have designed their space to cater for both takeaway and casual dining (once current government restrictions are lifted).

Customers will be able to choose the popular ‘rice and three’ option, or a small single pot curry from the daily changing selection of freshly cooked curries.

Priti added: “Our style of cooking is very different to Anglo-Indian curry houses, with our dishes being much lighter, healthier and nutritious, with our recipes being perfected to suit everyday eating, making it the perfect lunch-break or after-work grab and go spot.”

The curries will be rotated each day, allowing visitors to the café to try a myriad of flavours, layered with aromatic depth, expertly prepared using the freshest and finest produce served in sustainable, bio-degradable packaging,

In the months ahead, the Chapati Café team is also looking to develop a simple Indian breakfast menu, which is set to include a North-West Indian take on a classic bacon sandwich, their bacon bhatura with red chilli jam and the Indian breakfast classic, chole bhatura – sticky chickpeas with fluffy light bhatura breads all served along with their famous homemade Chai.

Founded by Dan Hall and Priti Chauhan-Hall, the husband and wife duo first met at work and soon bonded over their love of food and decided to pursue their dreams of opening up their own eatery, bringing real and authentic Indian flavours and recipes to Manchester.

Now in its seventh year, Chapati Café has become a staple in the Manchester independent dining scene and their MediaCityUK branch marks the start of their expansion journey.

Chapati Café will be open in MediaCityUK from Monday 8th March 2021, seven days a week, with initial opening hours 11.30am-7pm and will have extensive measures in place to keep both customers and their staff safe such as contactless service.
