Celiac friendly

At the beginning the young waiter did t know what GF is. After we explained to him, we were able to directly talk to the chef who was pretty knowledgeable. We had kebab and the food was amazing. We have celiac. The hot sauce they use are also gluten free.

This is among the best if not the best middle eastern restaurant I've ever been to. All the dishes are simple and are clear about what is in them: dairy, wheat, etc. Don't be shy about talking to the owner/cook about the food, he's also great at heping with deciding what you're ordering. The menu is quite short, but there are some things that aren't on the menu like dolmadas (stuffed grape leaves), so don't be shy about asking.

Great authentic Middle Eastern mom and pop restaurant. The daily special was written in both English and Arabic. The waitress/presumed owner was really nice about pointing out what I could eat on the menu (I can't have gluten, dairy or legumes). I was able to have any of the meat dishes since they are not marinated in yogurt, unlike some other Middle Eastern restaurants I've been to. I had the kefta kebab plate that came with rice and a mixture of tomato, cucumber and tahini. The waitress made sure to point out that the mixture was safe for me and did not contain any yogurt. The food was really good and I did not have any symptoms of hidden gluten/dairy exposure. I will definitely return.

Was able to order a combo platter of Middle Eastern meats/kebabs over rice and did not issues with my Celiac Disease. Even their Kefta Kebab that in many restaurants contains bread crumbs does not here. I really thought I was was going to have to give up having such good Middle Eastern food, very happy to have found that this place has plenty of options for me. Great hummus here too and very reasonable prices.
