Welcome to Our 2020 Takeout Menu

Welcome back to Amma’s Canteen, we are proud to show you our new menu for takeout. It’s a mix of our old favourites that will work well for carrying and six brand new dishes for you to try (see pictures below)

We are naturally following all the government advice to keep us all safe and therefore have a few ordering instructions for you here

You must call us on 0161 291 1682 to pre-order. We cannot accept walk in orders to minimise contact and waiting and allow us to plan to ensure things run smoothly. Card only payment please and contactless where possible.

We are offering a limited delivery service. You are welcome to enquire to find out the latest availability but please don’t be disappointed if we cannot offer it, our priority is getting the best food to you that we can and collection may be the only option for that.

We offer a 15% discount off menu prices for collection.

So here are the six new features of the menu, all delicious and with recipes unique to us with family inspired twists.

This weekend we have the menu below but also an amazing special!
