Allergy and food intolerances
Please let us know if any of your group has any allergies and food intolerances before you order.
We have a gluten free menu available in the restaurant and online.
We also have an allergy booklet available in the restaurant, which list which dishes contain any of the 14 allergens required by the Food Standards Agency.
With some many dishes on offer and with 100s of ingredients used, we will try our best to serve you Chinese food that meets your requirements in particular those that are not included in the 14 statutory allergens.
As there are many dishes which can be individually cooked in the wok we can exclude certain ingredients or include if you like.
Please ask for a member of our team to assist you whilst ordering.
Deep fried items are cooked in oil which may have previously cooked food with any of the 14 declared allergens are listed below:
All battered chicken dishes including katsu chicken
All battered seafood dishes, i.e squid, king prawns
All chi yim dishes
All satay skewered dishes
All Duck dishes
All Crispy veggie duck dishes
All fried Dim sum items

Please note any items which are deep fried in our deep fat fryers may contain residues from ANY ONE of the 14 allergens in the oil.
For example we deep fry our sesame prawn toast and therefore sesame seeds, crustaceans, milk, eggs, soya, and cereals containing gluten may still be present in the oil.
Due to the nature of our cooking and frying we cannot guarantee our food is 100% free from these allergens and therefore we would prefer that you choose items which are cooked individually in the wok, i.e. stir frys or steamed in our steamers.
