    What a mess it looks like burnt food thank Goodness I didn't take my husband and daughter here to eat they have to be gluten-free there is just bread and everything the meat looks burnt and is not very clean in there I would not trust this place if you are serious a celiac avoid not very nice servers either and they're much better options out there!!!!! Very disappointed because other reviewers said it was safe and he was touching everything and asked me if I wanted to take on a gluten-free Pita to my husband right with the same gloves he used to touch regular bread so buyer beware

    Not celiac friendly, great food tho. When they make a pita, they stuff the serving spoon into the pita shell, covering it in bread crumbs, then right back in the food. Couscous also gets into all surrounding food. So much potential but bad cross contamination. Food great.

    While I will still head in for a gluten free pita once in a while, while I was there for lunch I witnessed one of the servers dump the meat off of a wheat wrap back into the meat bowl when a customer changed their mind. When I spoke to the manager she indicated she would re-train the employees, but may not be worth the risk to celiacs.

    As soon as I said that I have celiac and would like the GF pita, the food preparer changed his gloves so there would be no cross contamination! Was very good and they separate GF foods so it's very safe.

    The menu is clearly marked with GF items. Without prompting, as soon as I ordered the GF pita, the staff changed gloves. The pita was double wrapped in aluminum foil before it was placed in the warmer. It was very good for GF fast food.

    I was so happy when I found out that a Mediterranean restaurant was gluten free because they usually aren't. The employees are very knowledgeable and they cook the gluten free food in a separate area and insured there was no cross contamination. They even have gluten free pita bread, which was a nice surprise! I would defiantly recommend this place for people who need to be gluten free!

    Rice is always half burned/dried out. Really ruins the meal. Meat is good. I alway feel tired and irritated after eating here though. Massive risk for cross contamination. Couscous spills into surrounding containers. The workers often jam the spoon of each ingredient into the pita when making sandwiches. It's not safe like chipotle where they dump it. They will throw the small pita on your plate so make sure to ask them not to.

    Delicious food. The person who put my plate together informed me that she would wash her hands and change her gloves before making my meal. I think there's some risk of cross contamination because when they scoop the food out of the containers to put into a regular pita pocket, the scoops can touch the bread. I'm very sensitive though and I didn't get sick.

    Roti is great and very accommodating for those with gluten allergies or Celiac disease! The manager comes over to make your meal to insure the safety of it. If you get the GF pita they wrap it in foil and then grill it so there is no contamination. There is possible contamination with the items that are next to the couscous, but just be aware and don't choose those things or ask if they have any that are not on the bar yet.

    Despite advertising their gluten free options and warning of the risk of cross contamination, my initial server refused to change his glothes before preparing my meal. His colleague begrudgingly did. However. clearly a lack of education regarding gluten at this location.

    They serve gluten free pita bread that tastes like the real thing. Extensive gluten free (and dairy free!) options, but they were out of several toppings when I ordered from them. I ordered online through their website, and it was a good experience overall. The website warns that there is some risk of cross-contamination.

    If you are sensitive to cross contamination, do not go here. The serving spoons often touch pita that is full of gluten, then they put it back into the food dishes on the assembly line. The only way to avoid this would be to avoid this is if the made a new batch of everything just for you.

    Carmen, the manager, was the unbelievably accommodating and knowledgeable. He used new gloves and cleaned the grill before preparing our salmon, without even being asked. He prepared our meals personally every time we were there - once even staying late (he saw us in line as he was leaving and came back into the kitchen to prepare our meals himself). This is our new favorite restaurant. Most items can be made gf, including salmon, chicken, steak, salad and rice. The gf pita is heated in its own 'toaster'.

    My favorite place by far!!! When I lived in Northbrook I went there multiple times a week. They are really good about being gluten free friendly. When you order and say that you are gluten free they wash there hands and change their gloves to avoid cross contamination. The same person takes you through the line to be extra cautious. They also have gf pita, which is delicious that they heat in a separate place from the regular pita.

My daughter, who has Celiac Disease, had the chicken kabobs with cucumber salad, rice, hummus and salad with GF pita bread and loved it. The woman preparing the food knew to change her gloves before preparing her food and stayed with my daughter's plate from start to finish.

    let me started by saying they have a GF pita. when I walked up I asked and they said they did so I ordered that. I asked if the falafel was gf too cause I am vegetarian. the guy said it was so I continued down the line and then a lady said it wasn't they all went back and forth for a little bit and came up with the final decision that it wasn't gf. so because I didn't want just rice I walked a way. it could be a fine place if you eat meat. I will not be back.
