    Very good food, and informed the staff, but menu items marked Gluten Free turned out to have the Indian spice blend hin, Which contains wheat flour. They do not have a dedicated fryer, and have no intention of getting one. Things you might not think or fried, such is the cheese in SAG paneer, have been cross contaminated. It is run by very nice people, and I would like to recommend it, but in truth there’s almost nothing safe to eat on the menu, and in less you quiz carefully those things which are marked Gluten Free are not safe for celiacs.

    SO good. Their menu says that they try really hard to make everything safe but they do share a fryer for some items. I took a handful of digestive enzymes to be safe.

    I don’t understand where people get this idea that gluten evaporates at high fryer temps, but that’s what the staff member told me after trying to convince me it was okay to get the fried chickpea noodles. I declined anything fried but I got glutened somehow

    Through the fryer is contaminated, they will clean the grill when a gluten free order comes through. I had the mixed veggie uttapam and it was SO GOOD This celiac didn't get sick. :)

    They do mention the dishes are 99.9% gluten free. So they understand the risks of cross contamination. The waitress was nice enough to ask me if I had celiacs, and let me know the dishes that were probably not a good idea - even if it was labeled GF

    Very awesome menu for the GF. Most items listed as sandwiches are fabulous in a bowl over rice or eaten alone. Thali can be GF and all pakoras are GF! Kale, chicken, okra fries, sweet potato, etc..all delicious!
