Special Diets:

Listed below are some Vermilion dishes on this menu that cater for people with special dietary requirements. If you have any food allergies or restrictions that we have not covered, please ask any of our waiting staff for assistance. We will always endeavour to provide you with a delicious meal to suit your particular needs.

Lower Fat

Many people’s perception of Indian food can be of a very high fat, high calorie cuisine. However, there are many lower fat, lower calorie options to choose from. At Vermilion we use a minimum amount of high quality vegetable oil in our cooking. If you’re counting your fat/calorie intake avoid the buttery/creamy dishes or dishes with coconut milk and stick to drier dishes or dishes with a tomato based sauce. Of course, choosing a lighter size portion will also help keep the calorie count down. Here are some suggestions:

Lower Carb

For a lower carbohydrate option we have many meat/fish only starters. Most of our main courses if eaten without rice or bread would have a fairly low carbohydrate count with the exception of dishes made with coconut milk or sweeter dishes like Chameen Mango Kolambi. If you’re not being too strict about it most of the tomato based curries above would have a fairly low carb content if eaten without rice or bread – you could ask for a side-order of spinach to accompany it.
