So good interesting food not just your regular items. Sweet potato fries and corn ribs were amazing - separate gf fryer can have almost anything on the menu.

Very limited menu, most of it vegan. I got the beef bowl, and the beef was melt in your mouth tender, but the brussels sprouts were very undercooked and practically inedible. Overpriced for what you get, but very celiac aware.

I had one of their bowls, very tasty. Great cocktails too! Gluten-free items were not marked, other than the availability of a GF roll substitute, our server verified if something was GF. As of July 2021, they have GF rolls available— veggie burger is NOT GF.

A little too trendy for my taste, millennials and zoomers galore. Food was good, but no waffles or pancakes to be found. Did have a very tasty GF banana bread that I enjoyed. Other main brunch/lunch options for celiac diners are a variety of bowls with sweet potato, kale, avocado & egg in various options. Tasty and felt very safe ordering, but not my cup of tea ambiance and menu-wise.

Basic Kitchen was amazing! We sat outdoors on the patio. The hostess and server were both very knowledgeable about gluten and cross contamination. She walked me through the entire menu of what I could and couldn’t have and what could be substituted to be made gluten free. She marked my order with GF and said she would communicate to the chef. She stressed that they took food allergies very carefully. I was so pleased with my meal. I had the basic bowl with chicken, and the flavors were so delicious. I went back a few nights later and had the steak bowl which was also good. I would highly recommend this place for a fellow celiacer. I felt so safe and welcome eating here.

My husband and I ate here today, the food was delicious. The staff was knowledgeable about gluten free dining and cross contamination. I had the basic bowl and it was excellent. My husband had the green curry and it was also very good. Would definitely go back!

Great food! Staff is aware of cross contamination and will take precautions. Menu isn’t marked with gluten free options but they will go over what is GF and also tell you what is cooked in a shared fryer. They are also good with modifications like roasted sweet potato instead of wedges as side and offer gluten free buns for burgers!

Basic Kitchen is one of my favorite restaurants. The staff is VERY knowledgeable, so kind, welcoming, and happy to accommodate. There isn’t information on the menu, but when you ask they are very clear about what is safe and what isn’t. And MOST of the food here is gf. Which is amazing (none of that “I guess you could have this over greens” crap) All that to say, I always feel safe and at ease eating here. And the food is DELICIOUS. So good I stopped on my way out of town to get some gf/df chocolate tart for the road.

This one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been in terms of being gluten-free...but more than that, it’s also one of the best in Charleston for any dining experience.

The dining room is also gorgeous...their amazing sensitivity to food allergies is a huge bonus. Lunches can be crowded but their dinners is where I really think they shine. Regardless, I’d eat here no matter what as it’s consistently amazing.

I had the gluten free biscuits for an appetizer, which were delicious! I also had the conscious cowboy cauliflower “grits” bowl and it was delicious and filling. The waitress was very knowledgeable about gluten free and made a point to specifically inform the kitchen about cross contamination.

I’m grain and nut/legume free in addition to gluten so I struggled with the menu. They did accommodate me with some creative solutions and it was tasty, but I left hungry. Also there are no gf donuts anymore (which was the reason I went there. Lol). 😩
