Following their simple guidelines will help to keep allergy sufferers safe: Firstly, let the person taking your restaurant booking know about your food allergy or intolerance. Ask them to check with the chef if they can provide you with a meal that doesn’t contain the food or ingredient you react to. Secondly, make sure the waiting staffs know about your allergy or intolerance and how serious it is.
