Naturally Chinese Restaurant offers food lovers a unique dining experience: is currently the FIRST and ONLY CoeliacUK certified Chinese restaurant in the UK, offering authentic Chinese cuisine and dim sum, free of Mono Sodium Glutamate (MSG) and artificial food colouring.

The combination of skills between husband-and-wife team, Chiu and Amie, with over 30 years’ experience in the food industry between them, can reassure you that this restaurant is not like any other.

Using only the best ingredients to achieve great taste, customers regularly notice the clean taste of Oriental origins as how it was traditionally served. All dim sum and ‘ho fun’ served here are prepared on site.

Prioritizing the wellbeing of our customers, “Feel Good” menus were put together by the collaboration of a top nutritionist and head chefs, creating balance and delicious meals.

Listening to customers’ frustrations, menus have been fine-tuned to suit vegetarians as well as those with wheat allergy (coeliac disease).

Great cooking skills and recipes are meant to be shared, so regular cookery classes are hosted to teach students the secrets of the trade. The chefs take pride in the 100% success rate of achieving perfect results by students.

Naturally Chinese is not just about making profit: engagement in charitable events and contributions to support the local community and business is an on-going pursuit.
