Fans of Ashton’s award-winning Indian restaurant Lily’s will soon be able to enjoy their vegetarian treats in Chorlton, as news comes that the team are due to open a brand new deli on Manchester Road. Adopting a unit close by much-loved Chorton spots Unicorn Grocery and Barbakan Delicatessen, Lily’s Deli is due to open its doors in September 2020 and will feature many of the same dishes featured in their popular Ashton site – albeit with a slightly smaller menu. A sweet counter will offer customers a range of colourful desserts and hark back to the brand’s roots, having originally opened as a Indian sweet shop in 1972.

The new space promises to be smaller than their Ashton counterpart, which debuted a little over a decade ago and went on to bag a variety of rave reviews from outlets like The Guardian and a local gem mention in the Good Food Guide. With construction currently underway, it’s still early days for Lily’s Deli and South Manchester fans will have to wait a few weeks before getting their hands on some veggie savouries and snacks. In the meantime, their Ashton restaurant is taking bookings and participating in the Eat Out To Help Out initiative.

Thu 30 Jul, Lily's Deli,
Manchester Road, Chorlton
