    We ate here three times on our trip and I never had an issue. Very knowledgeable on gluten. Had stacked chicken enchiladas which were amazing. Can't eat chips because of common fryer.

    The food was great! I only have a gluten intolerance so I don't have to worry to much about cross contamination, but the waitress asked all the right questions. We will defiantly go back!

    I love Verde! I have celiac disease and am sensitive to cross contamination. I will be honest 50% of the time I am okay eating here, however there have been a few times I have gotten sick after eating. It's usually when I will sample a chip or two or am not super specific about the fact that I cannot 100% have any gluten. In any case with celiac disease, be sure to be explain and reiterate that gluten cannot touch your food. The open faced chicken burrito with corn tortillas underneath is very good. The flavor is on point and the service is wonderful. Very caring and accommodating staff. Their margaritas are delicious too, I always opt for the one with Li Hing plum powder on the rim. Verde staff and kitchen take their time with food allergies/ just be sure to mention yours.

    This place was really good....GF options on the menu. I had the Fish Tacos and they were to die for. The staff was very accommodating and made me feel confidant that I would not be cross contaminated. The food was really good. I am a highly sensitive Celiac. I would go here again.

    Personally I wasn't impressed with the food, but regardless I was sick before I finished my meal. The server was nice and seemed somewhat knowledgeable, but when I asked about the fryer he said they only did gf and "he's got me covered they specialize in gluten free", but I could see fried flour bowls so I was hesitant since it is a very small place and he didn't say they had two dryers. I only ate a few of the chips and had shrimp tacos for my meal. I know I am on the extremely sensitive side of celiac, but I've never been sick this quickly. I don't know if the other reviewers aren't celiac or just aren't sensitive, but you really shouldn't eat here if you are celiac.

    Super good food! Ever one there knows what's gluten free and what's not. I had Garlic shrimp tacos that were to die for. The staff seems very concerned when you tell them you are celiac. She made sure to tell the cooks to be extra careful and when she delivered my tacos she repeated it was indeed gf.

    The food here was delicious, and I felt safe because they have a separate deep fryer for any wheat products. The signature margarita is also a winner! We ended up eating here 3 times during our 6 days on the island and loved it each time.

    Super tasty! Everyone was friendly and helpful. Our server, Yuki, was awesome about ensuring that my dietary restrictions were accommodated (gluten, dairy, egg, legumes, avocado, vinegar). She even double checked after my food arrived and consulted with the chef. It's not everyday that I find servers who go above and beyond to accommodate my dietary restrictions!

    Great food and energy in this place. A must visit for Celiacs when in Kauai. From the get-go they let me know that they were ON IT with GF. I had the Verde Verde Burrito and my wife had an amazing chicken burrito. They serve GF beer too. A fun place with a great vibe. It is small (we had to sit at the bar) and very popular... but they served us very quickly and made some amazing margaritas as well. Don't miss Verde. Next to Big Save in Kapaa

    Best food on the island. I ordered the verde verde burrito and they were more than happy to tell me my options of how to serve it GF. It was incredible. My husband (non GF) loved his tacos Al pastor. Pleasant staff, all were so proud to work there...overall an A+

    Very good Mexican, had the most amazing gf chicken enchilada. Large portions for decent prices, just tell them you need gf and they're happy to accommodate!
