Our comments: Explain to the staff that you are vegan and do not want any animal products, including butter ghee, in your order. The nan bread contains milk but you may be alright with the roti, paratha and chapatti breads; check with the staff.

Informed our researcher they do not cater for vegans.
Nothing suitable for vegans.
The pizza bases sometimes contain milk and other times not. If they are informed in advance they can make vegan pizzas, without cheese. Sadly kebab meat has been found on pizzas ordered as vegan, so clearly cross contamination is an issue.
No vegan food.
Unwilling to provide pizzas without cheese as "The sauce will burn."
The chips are cooked separately from the fish but the pans are alternated. The pans are skimmed in between but the chips will have been cooked in oil that has been used for fish, in most cases.
