    if you are celiac, don't go here!! there is GF all over the menu, but there are no options that are not contaminated. we left after talking to the waitress and hearing that there was no way for them to accommodate our needs.

    I ordered the Chicken Makhani to go and it was good, but definitely had a bad reaction to it.

    The lunch buffet is the bees knees! Everything is clearly labeled GF or not. I have Celiac and ate there with no problem except not a big enough stomach!

    Good, but did not feel it was the most authentic tasting based on the many Indian restaurants in our area. Still good though.

    Food was good. My waitress had celiac as well, so was a helpful guide. Only 2 appetizers and the bread/nan dishes were off limits. The waitress indicated that not many wheat-related items were fried in the frier, as most things with flour use chickpea flour. She said she can eat things fried there without a problem, but I am wary of that still. The hostess was clueless, and things aren't marked on the menu, but it was still a lovely and flavorful meal.
