NOT Celiac safe! Despite the fact their website AND menu says all food is gluten free, it isn't! Fortunately, I asked before digging into the bread they put on the table. I spoke to the owner, who then proceeded to tell me they had desserts with gluten, plus the bread "of course" had gluten and they couldn't guarantee that my food wouldn't come into contact with gluten. He was very nice and very apologetic. But, their website and menu is completely misleading. Why state all of your food is gluten free when it's not? However, my husband (who can eat gluten) ordered some food to go and said it was very good. So, if you're gluten sensitive, you'd be fine. Celiac, don't waste your time coming here.
I was in town for a conference and had dinner here. Everything on the menu is gluten free except for the bread, so there were a lot of choices! I shared a roasted eggplant appetizer, and had the black cherry chicken for my entree. Both were extremely delicious, and the entree portion was huge. I had enough leftovers for 2 lunches. Highly recommended! I have celiac, and did not experience any adverse events after eating here.
I'm not one for Ethnic restaurants, especially Middle Eastern (I don't know why, just not my favorite tastes). But, I found myself in San Diego without my enzymes that I need for CC issues that many restaurants have when serving both gluten and gluten free foods. I read up on this restaurant and saw all of their ingredients (except for their bread) do not contain any gluten. Out of safety sake, I went here. It was for lunch, so I wasn't excited about the $$$ designation, but I planned on sucking it up. First, I got a nice seat outside, which I was happy to see they offered. I ordered the chicken with black cherry dish. Prices were reasonable for lunch. I asked to keep the menu, as I planned on ordering something to go. I am a BIG eater and typical "lunch" portions NEVER fill me up. I was surprised to see a nice salad included, so used to a la carte everything at restaurants. And then they brought out my main course EXTREMELY fast. HOLY COW, the portion was, by far, the largest I have seen for any lunch, and most dinners. The chicken was tender and it all was delicious. I even brought some back to the hotel (which I promptly ate as soon as got in there, so not sure what my point was.) My belly was FULL and I did not get sick. Waitress was super great, and someone else (manager?owner?) came by to check on everything during. Although, dinner prices are more expensive, you can seriously get two meals in one. Trust me on this. I will ABSOLUTELY return here.
exquisite delicious Persian cuisine. The only gluten they use is on the bread they serve in baskets. The bread is not made by them in their kitchens. I have multiple food sensitivities (including, gluten, egg, tomato, citrus, and egg plant) and they were able to accommodate me effortlessly. It was an incredibly pleasurable dining experience! I would come back here in a heart beat! Only reason I did not give 5 stars is because they are not certified GF nor did I see that they completed training in food allergy.
