NOT AT ALL GLUTEN FREE OR FRIENDLY. DON'T RECOMMEND AT ALL.
The rice has pasta. The manager 100% guaranteed it didn’t have gluten. It obviously had gluten. You could get meat and veggies.
I work here and I have celiacs. All of the meats and veggies are really good options. Yes the rice is not gluten free because it is mixed in with little bits of pasta and you can get double veggies in place of rice with no extra charge!
We wanted to try based on the other rating but were told upon arrival that they could not accommodate gluten-free and that even the rice contained gluten. Not sure if that was true or if we just got unlucky with a staff person who didn't feel like dealing with us, but I can't recommend Arabesque because of that.
the base of the menu is completely gluten free (excluding the breads) and the hummus and lamb were some of the best in my memory. dedicated fryers and fresh ingredients make this place stand out. great bar serving several gf alcohols and a staff that is happy to help make sure your meal delicious and safe.
