    Great food and drink choices for anyone who is GF, vegan or vegetarian. Peruvian food in a fast-casual atmosphere. (No table service) Fairly priced. Extremely knowledgeable and friendly staff.

    Very flavorful. Eaten here three times without issue. Staff are knowledgeable of GF so just let them know when you order and they can advise.

    Got sick from eating here. Cross contamination and lack of caring about allergies is an issue. Great for the gf fad people who are just trying to eat healthier.

    Lists all menu items gf if so and puts an asterisk next to the items that can be made gf! Their potato loaf isn't gf but the menu item has the * so it can be made gf!

    First off, the people that work there are very nice even if not exactly knowledgeable about gluten free for Celiac folk. I've eaten here before and been disappointed, and yesterday was no different. To start, their menu lists this item "whole wheat purple potato toast" as gluten free. When I called to say this and ask if I can trust anything on their menu to actually be gluten free, they basically killed me with kindness and said they were constantly working to better their GF offerings, but made no move to change the menu to be accurate. It makes me nervous and so I ordered something naturally GF to be "safe". Within 10 minutes of eating I felt like shit. Had explosive you know what and my stomach still is distended and feeling horrible now 24 hours later. I call BS on their "celiac friendly" vibe and see that it is for the trend and not those who actually suffer.

    Pure luck that we stumbled on Culture on our way back from a wintery day trip to Assateague Island! Was thrilled to open the app and find a nearby spot with a celiac-friendly rating, and then again by the warm welcome and huge range of regular and seasonal menu items. Landed immediately on the Surf n Turf Avocado Bowl (as did my husband, who can have all the gluten he wants, so he opted for the tempura-style avocado rather than the grilled as I had). Lovely people, a delightful atmosphere, and fantastic to know that I'll have a go-to spot for super-flavorful, fresh, reliably gluten-free food when we return for a longer trip.

    My son has celiac, he was so excited to be able to eat popcorn shrimp made from coconut flour and French fries in a dedicated fryer.

    The food is soooo good! Many gluten-free options, aware of avoiding cross-contamination. Gluten-free options are clearly marked on the menu.

    This place was fantastic. Most of the menu was gluten free and the food was unbelievable! It's rare that I can eat most of the menu in a restaurant...this place was a true treat. Highly, highly recommend it.

    Excellent chicken and lots of other options. The yuca fries were some of the best I've ever had. A casual place where you can have a great meal for a very affordable price.

    Wonderful Peruvian ceviche! Best we ever had. Sweet potato soup and fries are amazing. Hidden gem, you would never know it was an eatery. Kids had gluten free chicken finger and loved them. Will definitely go again soon.
