    It's good that they show all these values, and they're available to download off their website, also.

    But when I looked through the menu a couple of months back, I could only see a couple of dishes that I'd have regarded as low carb. And everything did come with chips!

    I emailed them saying that I thought they were missing a trick, and that they should have a low carb section/symbol.....but never got a reply!

    And I'd like them to show the carb contetnts of their beers, too!

    Agreed but I would give them time for the low carb symbols. One step at a time. I still think they have done a great service to us all. I haven't tried to ask for extra salad or veg in lieu of chips. I just don't eat the chips. I'll try that next time I go in, which isn't that often.

    I have never really thought about the beer. I just have a couple of pints and just accept that my sugars will probably spike. Every now and again is not a problem anyway, in my opinion. I guess we could always stick to red wine!

    The Wagamama noodle chain are supposed to be doing something similar to Wetherspoons.
