I would pass it by this place is a total tourist trap. The wait staff was friendly kind of understood what we were looking for. There are not a lot of items on the menu that are safe. they use flour in all the sauces and everything that is fried is off limits. To be safe I stuck with a salad which was mediocre. My girlfriend had pork entree which was good and she didn't get sick although she's much less sensitive than I am.
Absolutely incredible food our waitress was very friendly and very knowledgeable its not a 100% gluten free facility but close enough they have a few items that contain gluten but they're not used in what they normally make. The food was incredible very creative menu I highly recommend and we will go back again before we leave Miami Beach. I am super sensitive and felt perfectly fine after eating here. It's slightly pricey but worth every dime.
**Cross Contamination Risks**
I had high hopes for this restaurant when I went a month ago (Jan. '15) and was told I could get the Sesame Chicken and Fried Rice made gluten free. I was sick for almost a week after but did not initially think it was from here because I had been assured my food was safe and thought maybe I just ate too much.
I went back on 2/18 and told my waitress I could not have gluten. She asked on a scale of 0-100%, how much could I not have it and I told her 100% no gluten. She said she could help me through the menu and I told her I would like the Sesame Chicken and Fried Rice. She told me she could not let me have the Sesame Chicken because although the ingredients were gluten free (cornstarch to fry instead of flour), she knew that they were fried in the same "fryalator" as the gluten containing Sesame Chicken. I told her that I had ordered it here before and how could patrons not be made aware of this and she said it was probably because most servers think it's gluten free just because the food itself is gluten free and don't think about cross contamination. I asked if I could have a grilled version instead and she said they don't have a grill, so it was not possible.
I am so glad I got her as my waitress and spoke with management to let them know they need to either fry in a different location or stop telling people it's gluten free. Had I had an allergy, and not Celiac, I could have died the first time I dined there.
I ended up not eating dinner there because the friend I was dining with felt bad so we went somewhere else, so I cannot comment on that but wanted to get the word out because maybe that's why it is a "hit or miss" or why some have gotten very sick and some haven't. After reviewing my food journal from the week the first time I went, I saw the pattern of eating that meal and getting sick all 3 times (I had 2 days of leftovers).
Super convenient just off highway- my call ahead on the way home/ gf pizza is consistently great- protocols are great- love the Madeira salad too/ just ask for no bread- yummy!!! Specials available- just ask.
I have had major problems here the last three times I visited. I ordered one type of GF pizza all three times, and they bring me the wrong GF pizza. Then they seemingly rush to fix the problem and bring me what I actually ordered - and I get really sick. I ordered a regular GF cheese pizza (trying to make it easy for them), and they brought out a GF vegan pizza. At least they got the GF part right, but last week was sadly the last time I'll eat here.
Love blue kangaroo- my celiac teens love having a gf safe place to eat and hang out w their friends- the baked goodies are always amazing. The bagels are great and reasonably priced. Gluten free sandwiches are good too. Love the muffins and cookies!!!!
