Very interesting Vegan and totally gluten free. However, do they actually, knowingly purchase gf corn meal to make the tortillas? I got sick, don’t know if it was chilies, I don’t eat nightshade vege’s, or something else. My reaction was short and not my usual long term , throw me against the wall Celiac reaction. That said, food was interesting, good. I might try it again but not real soon
This is a dedicated GF restaurant, so it’s celiac friendly. If, however, you have concurrent allergies, as many celiacs do, please use extreme caution. I informed the server, and even double checked with him, that my taco would be dairy free as well. It was not. It was not until my daughter asked again, that they admitted they made the wrong taco. This place is highly rated, so I’m hopeful this was an aberration and will be used as a learning experience for them in the future.
Found this gem while in town on business. Never thought a taco without meat could taste this good. Tried all 4 of their tacos, wow. You can tell the ingredients were in carefully selected harmony. Something you would expect at a fine dining establishment. Clean environment, fresh food prepared behind glass you can watch. A co-worker is vegetarian and I am gluten free. We both left satisfied. Most importantly the vibe here was overall healthy food. The staff was so confident about the fact everything is gluten free, they were almost nonchalant. That gave me confidence. Fast and easy to take out. Order food an stand while its prepared. Only a few tables. Highly recommend.
This place is outstanding! The service is great; it's very clean and safe for people with celiac disease. I did get the chocolate bar sold at the cash register and it said it was produced in a facility with wheat. However, the cashier offered to refund me and instead gave me an coleslaw free of charge. So great and the food seems to be seasonal which is healthy as ever. My dad's only concern was the corn tortillas were not chewy as wheat tortillas are.
The tacos at Chaia were so delicious that I was speechless (only oohs and yumms)! And I had to go back a second time to try the other 3 kinds. Everything is delicious and filling. Totally gluten free, healthy and reasonably priced. Great location in Georgetown. Quaint house with lovely atmosphere. The staff are very knowledgeable and caring. You can see them making the tacos and filling them. I plan to return often.
