    Very good braised garlic tofu and larb served in lettuce cups. The server chose most of the dishes for us which was ok but I didn't love everything. A good way to try new things though. He says everything on the menu is gluten free with the exception of the garlic noodles.

    Very delicious shrimp tacos though I'm a bit worried about the gf status. The menu claims food items are gf. Upon questioning the cashier I discovered that they do not know what gluten is. I asked if the tacos were gf and she replied "yes, all but the crema because it's made with sour cream." I explained what gluten is and got a blank look. The shrimp is grilled and not marinated in soy sauce and the tortillas are corn, so I decided to take a chance. Here's hoping!

    I stopped here twice today - once on our way to the beach and then again on the way back. Lots of pre-packaged gf options. This evening I tried a pre-made turkey sandwich. It was a bit limp but tasted pretty good. It is labeled gf but includes a warning that it is made in a facility that also produces wheat gluten. I was so hungry tonight I took a chance. Fingers crossed I don't get sick.

    This market carries a surprising number of pre-packaged gluten free products (Udi's, Glutino, etc.) including cereals, crackers, pasta, and cookies. Excellent find in a relative gf desert. Thanks to Marie of Sweet Marie's for the heads up.

    Everything we had was super delicious! My chicken salad sandwich was perfect as was the cheese pizza my husband got. He's not gluten intolerant so I know it's a good place when he wants to come back just as much as I do! We stocked up on some granola, muffins, and cookies and will definitely come back for a meal before we leave. Marie is lovely and a wealth of information about eating gf on Kauai.

    The hostess said most everything can be made gluten free. The server was not quite as generous though he did give me several options. He said they could make fried chicken in rice flour but it would take an extra half hour. I got the shrimp and grits. The grits were great; the shrimp was bland. My companion also ordered shrimp and grits and hers came with a delicious sauce (so she told me) that must be gluten-full and add a lot of flavor. Next time I'll try the salmon.

    I ate here yesterday with a non-gf friend. My turkey cranberry sandwich was pretty good but had too much turkey and not enough sauce for my liking. The salad was good. The server told me everything on the menu can be made gf. It was clean and nice inside and I'll definitely try it again.

    We had a decent dinner here tonight. We both loved the lemongrass shrimp appetizer and the apple goat cheese salad. We ordered both the fish tacos and the filet tacos on corn rather than flour tortillas. Our waitress seemed really knowledgable and recommended keeping the sauces on the side so my husband could enjoy them but I'd be safe. When the food was brought to the table, the gentleman who delivered them told me one sauce was gluten free. I tasted it and thought it must contain soy sauce so asked our waitress who confirmed that it did indeed contain soy sauce. Bummer. The manager came over to apologize and gave us a free dessert. Today's lesson for me is to confirm with the actual server rather than taking the possibly less-informed opinion of the busser. Decent food and I think they were trying to keep me safe but need to educate more of the staff.

    I've eaten here a few times when I've had tickets to a show at the nearby Orpheum Theater. The food is decent though the gf options are limited. It's a quick in and out served cafeteria style. The menu was changed today and my favorite chicken was no longer listed so I had a red curry salmon. The sauce was good but the fish was very dry.

    Really good french fries. Yummy portabella mushroom curry appetizer. My fish tacos were disappointing as they tasted very strongly of mayonnaise and the rice and beans were covered in a sesame dressing (made with tamari they said). Many menu items are gluten free. My husband's mana meal (described as vegetarian comfort food) was really good. I'd try this restaurant again but next time order a salad.

    The last few times we came here it was so crowded we left without eating. Tonight we were seated right away. I had a pretty good vegetarian sandwich on gf bread. I asked for extra mustard and was given Sierra Nevada Porter spicy brown mustard - most likely not gf with porter in the ingredients list though I was not able to immediately confirm this. I alerted the server and asked him to find out what mustard was already on my half-eaten sandwich. He said it was just plain brown mustard. Here's hoping I don't get sick tonight!

    Very good kebabs, rice, hummus, and delicious lentil soup. The waiter indicated many of the menu items are gluten free and pointed out which weren't. He said they grill glutenous foods on one side and keep gluten free meats to another side but it did sound like there could be some cross contamination.

    I ate here yesterday while visiting family. I had a very good turkey gf flatbread sandwich and salad. I was impressed by the number of choices on the gf menu. My gluten-tolerant family liked it too. Too bad the sweet potato fries were not on the gf menu though. They sounded really good.

    Chipotle is my go-to fast food when traveling. I was happy to find this one here just when it looked like I'd have to go hungry today. You gotta watch for cross contamination with the gloves but bowl ingredients are served with tongs or spoons.

    Our meal was just ok. I got a salad and the grated cheese was coated in white powder (mold? anti-caking agent?). When we asked about it we were told that is just the way it comes. The employee said all the sauces are gf except for the sweet one and all the meats are gf except for the beef.

    Super delicious food with most items on the menu gf. I tried the spicy fried chicken (rice flour), the Thai steak salad, and the green curry. We also had sweet potato fries. Everything was delicious!

    Super delicious ceviche. I've eaten here several times without a problem. They serve corn tortillas with almost everything. I love the tacos surtidos.

    I had a delicious grilled prawn and spinach salad and sampled from the curries my husband ordered. We started with vegetarian samosas - GF for me and regular for everyone else. It was all yummy!

    Tons of GF choices. The waiter said they can make most things without gluten, but sadly not the coconut shrimp. :( We tried the clam chowder, a delicious seafood salad, scallop risotto, and the fried calamari appetizer. Yum! The bread was GF focaccia and was fine.

    I talked to the chef directly and he made me a super yummy roll with cooked shrimp. The waitress was also very helpful and looked up the miso soup ingredients for me (contains barley). They had GF soy sauce. I would definitely come back.

    Pretty good sushi. This was our first trip here. We tried a couple rolls and the seafood noodles. Both were fine. They have several gluten/wheat-free menu options. I didn't ask questions about cross contamination though.

    I love getting sushi here. They are very accommodating with substituting cooked shrimp for the tempura shrimp in their rolls and always have gluten free soy sauce available.
