Incredibly delicious GF Afghan food. I’m also dairy free and was able to order the mini tasting menu with 4 meat dishes, 4 vegetable dishes and two flavors of rice. They used an almond milk vegan yogurt wherever yogurt is used. The only thing we couldn’t eat was the bread (they provided sliced cucumbers and carrots instead) and the famous dumplings. Highly recommend! Cozy, elegant ambiance too. Unfortunately GF not marked on menu, but it’s virtually all GF. Vegan and vegetarian items are marked. Excellent choice for vegetarians. I’d go just for the vegetables!

Excellent handling of Celiac awareness and accommodations for gluten free dishes: knowledgeable about cross contamination. Complementary chutney and bread for table to start, but brought out a separate plate of the chutneys with sliced vegetables instead of the bread. Most of menu is gluten free, you do need to ask though since the menu at the restaurant is not labeled (but it is online). In addition to safe for Celiac, the food is delicious!!

Food was excellent. They have many gluten-free options and I had no negative reaction to my lamb shank dinner. Unfortunately, you need to do a bit of research ahead of time because the gluten-free options are listed on their website menu. They have the same options on the in-house menu, but they aren’t labeled gluten free. The servers are helpful, but I would prefer it if they would label the gluten-free options on their in house restaurant menu. It just makes it more of a hassle when you have to ask all these questions and draws more attention to oneself than one might like. Also, time spent answering questions that could’ve been addressed in a menu, take away from time spent with other diners.

Delicious Afghan food. Most dishes are naturally gluten free and full of flavor. The vegetarian combo dish was amazing.
