About Me

I have been gluten and corn free pretty much my entire life thanks to my parents who diagnosed me very young. I recently also became whole foods vegan and I absolutely love it!! Although it can make restaurants difficult.

    Although gluten free isn't advertised, the staff and chefs are very knowledgeable as to what products contain gluten and are willing to adapt most items on the menu. They also serve gluten free desserts and even the egg rolls can be gluten free (a first for me)!

    I just went here for the first time today. The owner greeted us at the door and was immediately accommodating to gluten free by walking me to the buffet and pointing out which menu items were vegetarian and gluten free. The buffet is split down the middle of meat and vegetarian, so it is easy to choose that even if you aren't familiar with the dish names. He said they do not use wheat flour in anything typically, but pointed out one item that did have it-chicken poppers I think he said. Everything else was gluten free! (I am also intolerant to corn and he said corn or corn starch is never used). When I got back to the table he brought over a basket of lentil bread, I think it was to replace the pita but it was much thinner and crunchier. Still the first time I have ever been served gluten free bread. I am very impressed with the menu options and service at Coriander and would definitely go back.

    I love love mad mex. I always get a bare-itto which is just the fillings in a bowl. They give very large portions. The chicken is marinated in beer so don't order that, I think the other meat is okay but I would double check with your server.

    I love this place. The menu is huge and if you tell your server you need gluten free they will go over menu options and will accommodate by using gluten free sauces. I was surprised at just how knowledgable and accommodating this place was--it even had gluten free on my receipt!

    If you tell the servers you are gluten free they will give you a full salad instead of a spring roll and will use all gluten free sauces in the dishes they make. I was surprised at how knowledgeable the staff is!

    Lots and lots of GF options both on regular menu and dessert menu. Staff was very knowledgable and accommodating to check items for other intolerances I had as well. Sandwich bread was great, held together well (I would guess its Rudi's sandwich bread). Oh, tea selection is great too :)

    Great options for gluten free. Menu is very clear about how to order to be sure it is gluten free. And gluten aside, I love the option of subbing pasta for vegetables. I had the Jalapeno Garlic Tilapia with garlic spinach instead of pasta.
