Restaurant

Indian Restaurant
“Bright and bold Indian street food that’ll zap you full of energy. Mowgli was set up to challenge the idea that British ‘Indian food’ is limited to the high-calorie naans and chicken tikka masala you’ll find on hundreds of high streets. This is Indian food done the traditional way, and it’s exactly the type of healthy and aromatic grub that could put a big smile on your face. A great option for veggies and vegans.”

“This very stylish Pacific Rim restaurant from Knutsford's Living Ventures group offers a fantastic choice of sushi, sashimi and tempura dishes. The menu combines modern Australian cuisine with Pacific Rim flavours underpinned by European cooking traditions, a blend of Indonesian, Southeast Asian influences and Australia's strong ties with Japan are reflected.

Restaurant
“Beautifully crafted small plates (and some of the best veggie food in Liverpool). Maray was born when a group of friends decided to bring the atmosphere of Paris’s the Marais to Liverpool. Serving small plates inspired by Middle Eastern flavours, this trendy and intimate restaurant takes plant-based cooking to a whole new level. Maray also offers a tantalising selection of meat and fish dishes.”

Gastropub
“An eclectic multi-purpose arts space (that happens to do a dazzling Sunday roast). One of the city’s buzziest nightlife spots, Camp and Furnace is spread across several repurposed warehouses in the up-and-coming Baltic Triangle district. Its weekday menu includes the likes of homemade falafel, hearty burgers and their best-selling halloumi fries. The wildly popular Camp and Furnace Roast is available every Sunday, featuring a mouth-watering spread of organic meat, golden roast potatoes and the Yorkshire puddings of your dreams.”
