Zindiya takes over the former Luker's bakery on Moseley's Woodbridge Road. It is due to open on 26 January 2017 (updated).
The new restaurant will serve Indian high tea, and authentic small plates for sharing like chaat and bhel puri.
There will be a cocktails, wines, beers and spirits selected to work alongside the spicy flavours.
Decor will replicate a colourful, bustling Indian street market.
The couple behind the venture are Ajay and Shivani Kenth. They told the Birmingham Mail they are keen to preserve Moseley's independent vibe:
“Moseley is a vibrant and exciting destination for people across the city and beyond.
“I was born and raised in Moseley and have been astonished by just how much the food and drink scene has changed here.
“When I grew up here it was full of artisans and independents and that has started to change with the influx of chain restaurants, so when we had the chance to open our family run, independent business here it made sense.
“There are already a number of old-fashioned curry houses in the village but Zindiya is completely different to what Moseley has seen before.
“We are bringing Indian flavours and dishes to the restaurant, served almost as a tapas concept so that people can share and enjoy a wide range of different dishes with their friends.”
Zindiya is set to open by Christmas on Woodbridge Road in Moseley.
It joins a row of independent restaurants including Sabai Sabai, La Fibule and Kababish.
