I had a great experience of a relaxed Gluten Free meal last week, so important to us Coeliacs who often dread explaining our requirements when eating out.
I first came across Mantraa Indian Restaurant a few weeks ago and after a great meal I had to return for a second visit. They have a great value Early Bird on at the moment, providing a wide range of choice. My mouth watered when I read about the Squid Churmura, but I instantly thought it would be covered in a wheat flour batter. When I asked the waiter about this he said that a gluten free alternative could be prepared, this was no problem as they have many Coeliacs and Vegetarians come to the restaurant with different needs and everything is freshly prepared upon request. What a treat and it tasted delicious.
The main courses of Chicken Karahi and Kashmiri Roganjosh were equally delicious and the pilau rice came fragrant and flavorsome. Desert was ice-cream, which went down well after the spicy main course!
Yet again another tasty meal without any Gluten Free complications or fuss. The staff are attentive and interested in Coeliac needs, and attention to detail is carried through all the courses.
Well done Mantraa, I will be back soon!
