Symptomatic Celiac

Review


The food was excellent and the workers were able to point out what was safe and what was not on the menu. They let me know that the cheese for the saag paneer was fried in the shared frier, so none of the dishes with fried cheese were celiac safe, but most of the other main dishes were.

Anything fried is contaminated by the samosas, so stay away from pakoras, papadums etc... Otherwise, only the naan is off-limits. We had different curries and loved them all. They were not extremely spicy, which allowed us to taste the different flavors layered in each sauce. Loved it!

Great cheap (~$10) Indian buffet lunch. Lots of options. You can ask what's gluten free.
