Tias is a long standing restaurant in Durham, but it retains very positive standards. A straightforward menu, reasonably priced and good service. Always good for a meal before going to the theatre nearby.

Unfortunately not, we only have a separate fryer for gluten free dishes. However, not all of our vegan dishes are fried.
