So what is The Spice Club?
The Spice Club is Manchester’s first secret supper club. But what exactly is a supper club? Supper clubs have sprung up to great success in cities from London to New York and Tokyo. These events are run in secret and provide an alternative to restaurant dining, and a wonderful social experience. Based in a cosy North Manchester home, The Spice Club opens its doors to ‘curry lovers’ and hungry, adventurous, mouths for an evening of egalitarian dining. Our guests are invited to enjoy delicious home cooked Indian food and enjoy conversation with new friends.
My love for cooking comes from my mother, Anita, who is my guru inside (and outside) the kitchen. Hailing from Jaipur, India, my mum started cooking at the tender age of 10 and over the years has graced many guests with her flavourful and mouth watering North Indian Punjabi dishes. Consequently, I have grown a passion for being creative in the kitchen. I started cooking when from a really young age (Look at the pic!). When I turned 16, I got the opportunity of going to the States and going to university where I did my degree in Hospitality Management with a specialization in restaurant and food service management. Whilst attending uni, I worked in the restaurant industry to gain some real life experience and this is what fueled my dream of owning my own restaurant one day. But until then, I present The Spice Club!
Let’s talk about the food:
At The Spice Club, all of our dishes are made using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Each meal includes a welcome soft drink, appetizer, entree (consisting of 4-5 dishes accompanied with Basmati rice and chappati), a dessert and chai. You are more than welcome to bring your own drinks. The menu is different at every dinner event as we like to showcase the variety that Indian cuisine has to offer. Our events are very intimate-we give guests the opportunity join us in the kitchen if they want and also sometimes host cooking demonstrations. Our mission is to fill the void in the Indian restaurant scene which lacks the authenticity and satisfaction that you get from eating freshly prepared, home cooked Indian food. This is a new exciting way to dine! We are not sure how much silence or chatting will go on-that’s for you to decide. You bring the conversation, we’ll bring the food! To cover the costs we have a suggested minimum donation( (listed on the booking page). A percentage of all donations will go to charity. Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements or if you are vegetarian, in advance.

“Conversation is warming up as endless bowls of beautiful curries appear from the kitchen. The curries – lamb, chicken, paneer and cauliflower – are rich in flavour, and even the rice tastes better than any I’ve had in a restaurant. The service is fantastic too“
