Ate here without issue or reaction. The only things that they have with gluten are the sandwiches. Everything from the line is gluten free. Only thing they could have done better is with changing gloves. Didn’t see how they cleaned the cooking surface.

I eat here all the time. They are very careful with gluten and I’ve never been disappointed or sick from their healthy, tasty foods. 95% of their offerings are gluten free. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Wonderful experience. Everything is gluten free except wraps and bread which are isolated from all other food.

Hands were washed. Gloves were changed. See pic below of mac and cheese and bowl with tofu avacado greens and fixings. Absolutely delicious! Will return again and again. I saw prior review. Worse scenario when order tell them gluten free celiac, remind them to change gloves

Placed the order (one wrap non-GF, one bowl GF that included a note about celiac) and then watched them make it. Employee did not change gloves after making the wrap or ever the whole time I was in the store. Do not eat here.

Everything is gluten free except the tortillas and the naan bread, which are kept separate.

Food is SO fresh! No gluten items are out front and staff will wipe everything down and change gloves if you tell them you have an allergy. We have never had any problems and find that we feel really healthy after eating here.

The girl taking our order didn’t seem to know if the tortillas were gluten free. Another girl went to ask if the spinach ones were and she said yes. I don’t think they were. We asked for the manager because we didn’t trust the food on the line, as they run flour tortillas along the line and touch them with the utensils. We asked if they could get food from the back that hadn’t been cross-contaminated. She looked at me like I had two heads and she had never had anyone ask her to do that before. How can you say you’re a celiac-safe restaurant if you don’t understand the basics of cross-contamination. If they want to be a safe place for those with Celiac, then they need to do better.

I was so excited to find this place, but now so disappointed after having a pretty severe reaction. I had the Korean bowl. I was told it was all gluten free. Either there is a cross contamination or maybe something in the sauce? Wondering if they use soy sauce? I still plan to call and ask but haven’t had time during their open hours.

Do not eat here. It is no longer safe for Celiacs. Since they introduced bread...it is all contaminated. They grab the bread and then the salad mix. Handle avacados, swipe the food run and then serve the food. I spoke to the manager and came back in and it was even worse. Bummer they have great salads.

Website said everything was made with gluten free ingredients, so I was excited to try it. First thing I saw when I walked in was that they now had flour tortillas and felt a sense of dread. Sure enough, got gluten'ed.
