I have eaten at the restaurant in the past and have enjoyed their food. On this occasion, however, we had a member of our party who has coeliac disease. It was their final night in Sydney, and we thought that it would be a nice end to their visit to have a nice meal in a great location.
We called ahead to book the table and specifically asked them if they are able to cater for somebody who cannot eat gluten and were told that they would be able to adapt some of the dishes to suit.
On this advice, we went ahead and booked the table. We ordered the wine and began looking through the menu and when the waiter came over we asked about which dishes were either gluten free or could be adapted to suit. We were then told that the only starter that can be made gluten free was the seafood sang choy bau and a salmon main course! All the meats had been already marinated and they did not have any non-marinated meat.
We were all very disappointed and wish we had been told when we asked on booking they would not be able to cater for a coeliac, we would have gone elsewhere.
Of course, we understand in a busy restaurant that preparation is the key, but there are many people out there who are either coeliac or gluten intolerant and restaurants should be able to cater for this need.
I have given the restaurant 2 stars based on their lack of ability to cater for an important dietary need and not for the quality of the food served under normal circumstances, so if you don't have any dietary requirements, fill your boots!
