    They can do pretty much everything GF and it's pretty tasty! However, getting GF falafel is a little bit of an ordeal as they have to go get separate ingredients from the back, so I would not recommend coming here during a peak dining time if you need dietary accommodations.

    I have been here twice, once when busy and once when they weren't. Each time they took care and precautions to ensure my food wasn't contaminated and offered me any topping from the back. Their falafel is amazing and I have never gotten sick here!

    Went with my girlfriend during dinner time. Like the commenter before, they said they can't really accommodate strict gluten free diets when it's busy. The toppings for the falafel are self serve and there is mixing between gf and non gf items. They said that they do keep cross-contamination free ingredients in the back but that they wouldn't be able to help us while it was busy.

    Told me they were busy and that it would take a long time to accommodate me, then made no attempt to accommodate. I awkwardly stood there and then left. Unprofessional.

    Very accommodating and kind. I told them I have celiacs and they brought out containers from the back of all toppings I wanted. Loved it and will definitely be going back!

    I have a severe celiac and never have I been to a place that's more accommodating or knowledgable. This place is the best. I highly recommend it. The food is fantastic and the staff is awesome to talk to and great to work with. I love this place!

    My favorite gluten free food in Davis square. Buffet style (gf) falafel (in a dedicated frier) and toppings by weight but they will use supplies from the back to make one up separately if you have an allergy/celiacs. Always responsive and have made separate meals for me no matter how busy though it sometimes takes a little longer.

    so good! They were very helpful with cross contamination and had a lot of knowledge of how eat safely for people with gluten allergies.

    Got a falafel bowl and everything was so tasty! The girl that helped me even went and got all my toppings from new containers that had not been used yet to minimize the risk of cross-contamination! I will definitely be going back there! Great place and awesome gluten free friendly experience.

    Extremely tasty falafel! Everything in the restaurant is GF -- except the pita bread, of course. This is also a great place to get fries that are 100% safe (i.e., have not been fried in the same oil that is used for breaded food).
