    Love this place but when you order don't forget to ask for corn tortillas.

    The menu had very few options and the staff did not understand what gluten free is. Not celiac friendly either

    We are gluten sensitive and also dairy allergy . Have eaten here a couple times with no issue. They have gf menu. Servers have been very helpful and always check with the kitchen if we have concerns. Will definitely go back.

    good food - if you eat meat. there are practically no vegan options. our whole group was gf and we customized a salad to fit our allergies that four of us got... we had to send two of them back cause they messed it up and one of the salads had to be sent back twice. it was definitely a quality control issue. and, the gf menu is extremely small and the Mexican rice had gluten in it. overall, I was not impressed and I would recommend going to Ruby's across the street instead.

    If you are truly gluten intolerant or celiac this is NOT the place for you. My stomach hurt even before the bill arrived at the table. Having the usual gluten reactions. The food was not even good, so that adds insult to injury.

    Great food, great service, great location. Wish they had just a few more options and a dedicated fryer.

    Really not a fan of this place. I went here a couple of years ago so I hope that this place has changed since my last visit. Most of the people there didn't know what gluten free was, and had a serious attitude about it when asked. I felt very unwelcomed, and was there with my wedding party for a casual hangout spot. You would be better off at one of the many other spots in Maui that accommodate.

    Terrible food. My husband and children who do not have celiac said the food was tasteless. Will not be back.

    OK but if you are looking for killer fish tacos on a GF menu, go a few miles up the streets to Coconuts for only a dollar more. Nice for a group o friends if you are only GF though.

    Excellent food. Very accomodating for food allergies and intolerences. They have an ingredient list they can show you. They have a green sauce (suiza) thst is gluten free. Wonderful service and you can actually eat more than a salad here if you are eating gluten-free.

    Good food and drinks but they serve soft tacos on flour so make sure to ask for corn

    Tacos were very good, although for my personal taste I found the beans a little too spicy! Overall the food was tasty though!

    The only thing "gluten free" on the menu us shrimp or pork tacos. Manager refused to modify the tortilla chips to make them gluten free (leaving off the additional seasoning sprinkled after they are cooked). Then put tortilla chips on the gf order. I will not go back.

    The person at the counter had no idea what I was talking about when I asked about gluten free.
