This is my favourite place to eat in Cardiff. After plenty of bad experiences in restaurants there are not many places here that I feel safe eating as a Coeliac except Veggie Studio! They also offer a takeaway service which I have used many times.

It’s a lovely little restaurant with beautiful handpainted murals on the walls and friendly staff who greet you at the door. We took my 7 month old nephew with us for lunch and the staff were giving him so much attention, he loved it!

As well as the main restaurant they also have a deli counter where you can buy their amazing starters, sweet treats and snacks to go. I never leave without a bag full of their atom bombs and crispy potato bhajis! They fry the majority of their food in gram flour which is good for me as a coeliac but not so much as a low fodmap diet follower.

The menu has a wide range of starters, snacks, smaller dishes, Oriental-influenced dishes, South Indian dishes, North Indian dishes, breads, rices and sides. It it is clearly visible on the menu which dishes are gluten free and vegan friendly. I nearly always opt for their Gujarati Thali which offers a perfect combination of dishes for only £6.65. Included in the Thali is ‘the curry of the day’, 2 starters, steamed basmati rice, dhal, your choice of bread (gf option), 1 poppadum, a small salad and a dessert. Today’s curry was the black eyed bean curry which is delicious but they also gave us the option to swap it for a delicious potato curry. I chose to have the potato curry instead as I thought it would be a better lower fodmap option than the bean based curry. When ordering the Thali you are given the option of having regular, gluten free or vegan.

The staff are always understanding when it is explained that I have Coeliac disease, in the many years I have been eating there I have never had gluten-related adverse effects. It isn’t easy to find restaurants that are low fodmap so I always try and swap certain things if I can to lower the fodmap content.

For anyone suffering from Coeliac Disease, a gluten allergy, or simply avoiding it for health reasons I cannot recommend visiting this little restaurant more!
