Amma's South India Cuisine Restaurant Coming To #NewtownPA

Amma's South India Cuisine Restaurant Coming To #NewtownPA | Newtown News of Interest |

UPDATE (1/24/24): The Board of Supervisors unanimously approved this application.


A popular Philadelphia Indian restaurant is looking to open its fourth location in the Delaware Valley at Goodnoe Corner in Newtown.


The owners of Amma’s South India Cuisine will be seeking conditional use approval from the Newtown Township Board of Supervisors to open a 72-seat restaurant at the former Zoës Kitchen on North Sycamore Street.


If the use is approved, Amma's will move forward with its plans to open its first restaurant in Bucks County and its fourth in the Delaware Valley.


At its January meeting, the township's planning commission voted unanimously to recommend approval of the application by the supervisors.


"I am happy to see something going in that space," said planning chair Peggy Driscoll. "It's been empty for a long time."


The space, which has been vacant since Zoës closed its doors in February 2023, will be renovated into the township’s newest dining spot where the spicy foods of South India will be featured on the menu.


johnmacknewtown's insight:

At the January 24, 2024 BOS meeting where this application was approved, I asked the applicant if they intended to serve alcohol, which would require a liquor license. They said no, but admitted at least on of their other restaurants does serve alcohol. Since Guru's is now on the market (see below), its liquor license is also up for grabs. Will Amma's buy it?
