Allergens

Please inform our staff if you have a food allergy and ask for our full fact sheet to help you choose items that you can eat. Please note that like most Asian restaurants, the extensive use of nuts and peanuts for cooking and flavouring means traces of nut are unavoidable and we cannot guarantee any dish to be nut-free.


There are 14 major allergens that restaurants have to declare if present in their food. Nearly all our dishes can substitute ingredients if required, except nuts.


We use products containing Gluten, Crustaceans, Eggs, Fish, Molluscs, Nuts, Peanuts, Sesame Seeds, Soya and Sulphur Dioxide (fizzy drinks).


We do not use products containing Celery, Lupin, Milk or Mustard.
