Judges comments - September 2018

'We had booked ahead for the Saturday evening, which turned out to be a good thing because it was busy. Our waitress was very welcoming when we arrived and very good about our allergies; nothing seemed to be too much problem.

The menu was really comprehensive and had lots of great options. Whilst they only state that they are 100% GF, the majority of their dishes are also DF (42 of the 44 are both). There was a nice selection of vegetarian/vegan dishes, though not as extensive, but all were clearly marked. I checked whether a couple of their dishes contained potatoes (my intolerance) and they were able to answer clearly and recommend other dishes where I couldn't eat the ones I'd asked about.

I also liked that they use local produce wherever possible and include details of it on their menus. Great to see a couple of GF/DF puddings on the menu, especially as they could be accompanied by either DF or vegan ice cream.

The food was delicious and the kids enjoyed their choices, although G complained her pad thai was a little spicy! G really enjoyed her portion of Thai custard cake (which was both GF and DF) and M was a big fan of his banana fritter. The portions were huge and we struggled to eat everything.

We would definitely go again for a special occasion – it is relatively pricey. Great to be able to eat allergy-friendly Asian food though with no bad consequences or reactions.'
