The ultimate guide to lockdown takeaways in Milton Keynes

Latest update: Sunday 17th January 2021

A happy new year and happy new lockdown?! This guide has been live on my blog for almost a year now and every time a lockdown rolls around I give it an update… I didn’t really anticipate another full lockdown in January, but here we go again! This is a guide to the independent food vendors, restaurants and cafés that are continuing to offer takeaway or delivery throughout lockdown.

The guide has had a total facelift since the last update, with new places added, new categories and new images. I’ve featured as many places as I can, so if I’ve missed any, let me know and I’ll update the lists at the bottom of each section.

Asian

Akasaka

Akasaka is my favourite Japanese restaurant in Milton Keynes. I absolutely love the takoyaki (octopus dumplings) and nasu dengaku (miso aubergine), and their sushi offering is brilliant. Akasaka Central Milton Keynes is currently for delivery and takeaway and delivery within 3 miles of CMK. Visit www.akasaka.co.uk to order and for the most up to date opening hours.

Café Sen

We discovered this little gem of a Vietnamese café near Bletchley during the last lockdown and it’s now a firm favourite. I recommend the special Banh Mi or the noodle soups and salads. Café Sen is now offering delivery within a certain radius (fees and minimum order apply) as well as takeaway. It’s open weekdays and Saturdays, 9:30am – 2:30pm. Pre-order online via www.cafesen.uk.

Mii & U

Mii & U is one of my favourite Asian restaurants in MK and is a firm favourite for many of you too! They are offering takeaway from their venue in Stacey Bushes. Try the Pad Thai, Chicken Laksa or the bao buns. For the latest opening hours and information, visit their website: www.miiandu.com

Pin Petch Thai Restaurant

Pin Petch is a good option for Thai in Newport Pagnell that has great vegan options as well as meat. I’d recommend the Paeng Red Ped Yang red roast duck curry and the crispy chicken with mango salad. The delivery radius is within 3.5 miles of Newport Pagnell and you can order via the website, Just Eat or their app. Please see their website for the most up to date opening hours and information: www.pinpetchthairestaurant.co.uk

Sushi Club

Sushi Club launched in 2020 and I highly recommend it! Based in Oxley Park, they deliver fresh sushi across Milton Keynes. It’s fantastic value, high quality and great customer service. They are getting very busy though, so pre-ordering is recommended. They’re open daily and delivery is within 5 miles of Oxley Park. To order and find menus, visit www.sushiclubmk.com.

Taipan

A great destination for Dim Sum and a very popular traditional Chinese restaurant based in the theatre district in Central Milton Keynes.

Thai Home Cooking

This is a recent discovery for us, and one I wholeheartedly recommend. Thai Home Cooking is a takeaway based in Broughton offering weekly set menus for delivery on Fridays and Saturdays. At £24.50 for a menu for two, it’s excellent value, and one of the most authentic Thai meals I’ve had locally. Follow Thai Home Cooking on Facebook to see the menus and order.


Thai Modern

Another great destination for Thai food is Thai Modern. It’s based in Witan Studios and offers some gorgeous dishes. They are open for takeaway. For the latest information and opening hours, visit www.thaimodern.co.uk.

Burgers & Wings

Byte MK

Byte MK is a new addition to the growing gourmet burger scene in MK and it’s an excellent offering. It’s based next to MK Bowl, opposite Furzton, but don’t let appearences put you off. These burgers mean business! It’s a ‘build your own’ concept so you can choose your patty, bun and fillings to make it your own. I recommend the Wagyu beef burger with cheese and bacon. Oh, and try the wings too, they’re fab. At the moment, delivery is only available via GrabNow, but you can also order for collection.

Five Ahki’s

A very good burger destination in Peartree Bridge. Five Ahkis’ burgers mean business. I’d recommend trying the Juicy Lucy or the Big Ahki if you don’t mind something sweeter. The wings from here are also pretty good – try the Chipotle & Lime or Honey & Garlic. Five Ahki’s is open from 2pm daily and you can order via JustEat for delivery or collection.

Gourmet Burger Joint

Gourmet Burger Joint is a brilliant burger destination in Newport Pagnell. The burgers are made from 21-day aged Angus beef and they’re pretty good. If you’re a big eater, try the ‘House Burger’ which features a beef AND chicken patty. It’s open daily and you can order via their website www.gourmetburgerjoint.co.uk, app or JustEat.

Order via their website: kingscomfortfood.square.site

Percy’s BBQ

Percy’s BBQ is a bit of a Milton Keynes staple. Their food has been great on the occasions I’ve ordered, but I know it can be a little hit and miss for some of you. I recommend the Porkwich and the wings – proper tasty food. Percy’s is open Wednesday – Sunday, 11am – 10:30pm and delivers to most MK postcodes. You can order online: www.percysbbq.co.uk or call 01908 568007.
