Evelyn’s Café Bar
 
Based in Manchester’s trendy Northern Quarter neighbourhood, Evelyn’s Café Bar focuses on serving delicious, healthy food packed full of flavour and nutritional benefits. A lot of the restaurant’s menu is gluten-free and its menu clearly defines what is and what isn’t suitable for its gluten-free customers. The food served here is modern and classic, and many of the dishes have an Asian twist to them. Evelyn’s dishes are packed full of big, bold flavours that take gluten-free dining to the next level. Korean fried chicken, seared mackerel with black rice and veg, and lamb with pomegranate salsa are just some of the many delectable options on offer here, and with their generous portions, you definitely won’t leave feeling hungry!

Mowgli
Based within Manchester’s Corn Exchange, Mowgli is one of the best Indian restaurants in the city centre. Specialising in authentic Indian street food, Mowgli provides both a separate gluten-free menu as well as a vegan menu to enjoy. Traditional Indian food usually favours gram and chickpea flour over wheat flour, and as Mowgli is all about traditional Indian fare, their menu is perfect for gluten-free customers. From dahls to lamb keema and Mowgli’s special sticky wings, you’ll be delighted by their wide variety of eating options and wowed by their big flavours and mouth-watering spice combinations.
