I ate here a few years ago and was fine. Today they have verbiage on their menu about likely cross contamination and the staff shares that as well. I’d say their menu is friendly for those on an optional GF diet but no Celiacs or gluten allergy.
I have a gluten allergy and basically just the salad was the only thing I felt safe to order. The manager was pretty helpful to explain my options and posible cross contamination in the majority of the products that are naturally gluten free. I'm thankful he was honest.
The menu was upfront about possible cross-contamination since many things are made in-house, but when I mentioned having sensitivities to both gluten and dairy they sent out a manager to speak personally with me about all my options and the manager took my order separately from my party. Wait staff was super attentive. Delicious food. Great experience!
The staff was knowledgeable and helpful. They took it seriously and were very up front regarding their kitchen and the likelihood of cross contamination. They had meal suggestions but were clear the kitchen has flour everywhere. I appreciated their honesty and willingness to handle my food as safely as possible. I ate the chicken kebab and veggies, no rice because it’s cooked with noodles. I did not have a reaction after.
Menu says gluten friendly but also warns about possible cross contamination. My server seemed knowledgable so i went with it. I should have listened to that menu warning. I don't have a severe allergy, but I haven't felt this bad in a long time. Wish I did not eat there!
Went for dinner. Informed our server. Kitchen manager came out to check if I had a severe allergy, as they are "gluten-friendly" but cannot guarantee no cross-contact (let's be honest, no restrestaurant can and if you think they can, you are fooling yourself). After speaking with my server, he strongly suggested the chicken kebabs as they are cooked farthest away from everything else and would be the safest for me. They were delicious. The rice has pasta in it, so instead he had my kebabs served on spring mix lettuce along with their shredded carrots, red onions, and pickled beets. Had chocolate mousse for dessert.
Told the server couldn’t have gluten and she said ok the manager will come out. Manager said there is flour all over the kitchen and there would be cross contamination.
Though they are very aware and conscientious, they made a point of saying they have a very small kitchen and that cross-contamination was almost certain...even for a salad. At their suggestion, we ate somewhere else.
Very attentive to food sensitivities. They worked around mine and provided delicious meal alternatives.
Awesome! Staff was very knowledgeable, and a manager came over to check on us multiple times and verified that my food was prepared separately. We will be back!
Exceptional care & attention to my needs!!!
My favorite restaurant! Service tends to be a little slow at times but the food is worth it. I love the hydari and esme dips.
The chicken and lamb adana are amazing! You can read my full review here.
Server was very helpful with me ordering a gluten free meal. Even told me the jasmine rice had pieces of pasta in it, so I should order a different side. Had yummy Lamb Ka-bob with vegetables. Good size portion for lunch!
