Let's face it, dining out gluten-free can be a PAIN. From having to find somewhere that provides gluten-free options to often clueless staff, it can be far from easy. Everyone opting for a gluten-free diet will know the difficulties of dining out as part of a group and feeling awkward having to enquire about the gluten-free options available as they haven't been clearly marked on the menu.
Well, now you're in luck! We have compiled a list of the restaurants in Manchester that offer the best gluten-free options for diners that are easy to order. If you have a gluten intolerance, suffer with coeliac disease, or just want to lose a bit of weight, we're here to help you find the best dishes in Manchester without those pesky proteins!
What's the vibe: Accredited by Coeliac UK, Pho is an excellent choice for those wishing to dine gluten-free. Pho is named after the national street-food dish in Vietnam that is more than just a bowl of tasty, noodle-y goodness, it's food for the soul. At Pho everything is kept simple; menus are short, meaning a small number of Vietnamese street food dishes can be focussed on and everything is cooked fresh, in house.
Gluten-free options: Pretty much everything on the menu from starters straight through to desserts is gluten-free other than the beer and one dessert! It's all clearly marked so ordering is a breeze.
What's the vibe: Located in the heart of the Northern Quarter, Dough is a contemporary pizza place. They aim to be as inclusive as possible and strive to have something for everyone's dietary needs, without ever compromising on taste. It's usually unheard of to find good gluten free pizzas, but we think Dough may be the restaurant to buck this trend! It's a seamless place to eat gluten or dairy free.
Gluten-free options: You're in for a treat here, every single pizza can be made gluten free! There's a range of modern pizzas from chicken balti to surf and turf, to classic pizzas including florentina and wild mushroom - the options are endless.
What's the vibe: Allotment are committed to creating vegan and gluten-free food like you've never tasted before! The menu is fresh and engaging to encompass the best of the season's harvest and local, sustainable growers are used wherever possible. The Allotment brings an entirely new plant-based experience to the table, and it's no surprise they've won Manchester’s Chef of the year, and according to The Times, they are the Number 1 Vegetarian restaurant in Britain!
