Call in advance to request GF Injera (all teff flour). They are family owned and absolutely lovely. I recommend getting one of the platters so you can sample a variety of different dishes. Every one of them are delicious.

Family run place, very friendly and accommodating but not knowledgeable about celiacs. They make their own injera (the bread base that Ethiopian food is served on, and what is used to eat with). If you call ahead they can make gluten free injera, which was delicious. Great for gluten free, but not celiac friendly. I had a reaction, likely because they cook with wheat flour in their kitchen which makes it nearly impossible to not cross contaminate.

Celiac friendly?
