Truly excellent food, safely gluten free (am coeliac) but for non coeliacs they would not notice. Tried the vegan options this time and I was bowled over by how good it was. I’m not local so don’t visit often but try to get here once or twice a year. If I lived in London it would be by go-to restaurant. Can’t praise it enough.

Good food in a totally gluten free environment. Ridiculously expensive drinks and the food was a little overpriced for what you got but as a one off it was really nice. Recommend if only for the total piece of mind it offers to the gluten intolerant. Pleasant waiting staff with friendly efficient service.

Thanks for your kindness but the food was not at the price level (ribs with a lot of grease and potatoes without salt). Also, the Cote du Rhone red wine was not tasty (very acid).

The food was excellent. So great to have a full menu of Gf food to choose from. Portions were a little small. A bit pricey.

This was our first time at Niche. Looking at the reviews and being gluten free, I was very excited about our dinner. The service was very good and the waitresses very nice. The food is ok but nothing special and very pricey for what you get. Maybe I was not lucky with the sausages and mash and the sides.

Absolutely fantastic experience. My first time in a fully gluten free restaurant, which as a coeliac is absolute heaven! My non coeliac partner enjoyed it just as much as I did.
The beef short rib was sublime and the puddings were just spectacular!

The food tasted good considering it was all gluten-free but it was very overpriced for what it is.

The most disappointing part of the meal was that it states on their website and their physical menus that their full "menu is available at lunchtime (12-2.30pm)" (taken directly from their website). We had a table booked at 13:30 specifically for this reason as we wanted to be able to try the full menu and we were told the full menu was not available, which was disappointing as we had travelled all the way into London from Hampshire for this restaurant specifically as family members that we were with were GF.

The staff did manage to provide my family member with the option that they wanted from the full menu, but it came across like it was our fault for not knowing that they weren't offering their full menu. Why advertise that you offer the full menu until 14:30 if you cannot provide customers with these options when they sit down to eat at 13:30?

The only other thing I would suggest is that the meals should be served on hot/warm plates as the food cooled down very quickly on stone cold plates.

Room for improvement but I hope this encourages more fully gluten-free/Coeliac UK accredited restaurants in the future.

Lovely food, really nice to be able to eat here knowing it's all gluten free so I won't get ill and the added bonus of having dairy free options! Staff were very friendly and food came out very quickly. We'll be visiting again! Thanks

Niche Gluten Free Dining was nice but expensive. The prices prohibited you from choosing more exciting menu options. Niche in food but niche in price. I know it's London but felt it was prohibitive to the whole experience e.g only had a main course and desert is one of the things that you usually can't have as a coeliac. It's not that difficult to cook gluten free so not sure why it seems to be a premium. Understand restaurants can charge what they want/need to make the business viable, but this experience is more of an occasion rather than a regular haunt.

The food was really good and the restaurant is really lovely.
We had the burger with great fries and the mash potatoes and sausages.
The mains were fantastic but the deserts were even better!!
Overall we had a great time and I wouldn't be able to tell its gluten free.

Absolutely wonderful place. One definitely needs to book in advance, even just for lunch. There was only one person serving all the tables during lunch time, but she was amazing!! So lovely, remembering about us, making sure that we are comfortable at just the right times.
Food was divine. It’s is rare that I can relax completely about what I eat due to lactose and gluten intolerance, but in here- absolutely heavily food, and no worries at all that I would have any reaction :)
Very happy with this place, highly recommend

Delicious Gluten-Free dining and an additional bonus by having a Low FODMAP menu as well, which is not easy to come across. Great food, great staff. Highly recommended
