Always a really great selection of gluten free options and very yummy food. I've been here maybe 3-4 times and usually have a great experience. However, I feel like I should note that the last time I was here, I had an extremely negative experience with bad service. First of all, we were seated in the basement--which is dark and claustrophobic, definitely not as nice as the upstairs dining room--and placed next to a large group with lots of young, loud children. Secondly, I know waitstaff have a hard job and I'm generally not bothered by slow service, but the service we received was unacceptable. It took more than 2 hours to eat (we were a group of 3). Our waitress kept disappearing for long lengths of time, and we had to flag down a second waitress (who was much better than ours) several times to check in on our food, retrieve our credit card after our waitress disappeared with it for 15+ minutes, etc. Our waitress never apologized to us or explained the delays. The second waitress did apologize and told us (after we had given our credit card) that we'd be comped for our meal due to the poor service, which was nice of her, but the manager was also MIA and we'd been there for hours so we ended up just paying and leaving. I have no idea what was going on, but it was very disappointing especially as I had an out-of-town guest with me and wanted them to have a nice meal. The GF food is good, and I've had a positive experience here the other times I've been, but I'm bringing my rating down to 4 stars because of the poor experience. I'm hoping it was just a one-time thing and they were having a particularly bad night, but I have not been back since so it's hard to know.
Our waiter Candido was wonderful - great GF menu and thoughtful service
I was actually very disappointed with their GF offerings, especially items that should have been GF naturally that were on the regular menu but were not on the GF menu. When I asked about one item in particular, I learned that it is because they use pre-packaged sate indian spice mix. I expect more from a restaurant of this caliber.
excellent food! I went to the one in the south end and it was great. huge menu, very knowledgeable staff - loved it!
Great food. Gluten free menu is not that much smaller than the normal menu and seems just as delicious. The curries are delicious. They have cooking classes that are designated as gluten free also (and a great time). Highly recommended.
what a great experience. the atmosphere and the staff were great. we went on a surprisingly busy tueaday night. i had been before and tried items off the gluten feee menu, so i decided to try a new app and main course. i also have an allergy to casein/dairy, but this didnt hinder my ordering as their ethnic recipes use no butter or other dairy. curries are made butter free with coconut milk. the flavors of everything ive tried here are amazing. will return, often.
The food was very tasty, and the gluten-free menu is extensive. The puffed rice appetizer is amazing! The downside was that a gluten-free dish was served with gluten! Luckily my boyfriend, who is not gluten-free but had ordered gluten-free so that we could share, noticed that there were fried, battered scallions on his fish before I took a bite! These scallions were the difference between the fish dish on the regular and gluten-free menus.
Been here twice & both times it was a very good experience. Unique delicious gourmet meals presented beautifully. Gluten Free equals variety and spice here.
One of the best gluten free friendly places wee been to. Upon arriving we asked for their gluten free menu and were told "oh, it's the right hand side of our REGULAR menu!" they had TONs of options and our waitress even had celiacs herself so she was incredibly helpful!
Nice selection of GF dishes including appetizers, entrees and desserts, very tasty
Nice selection of GF food and the grilled steak was amazing.
Although the food was very yummy and over 2/3 of the menu was gluten free/gluten free on request, I found the service frustrating. I stated before ordering any food that mine would need to be gluten free and also reminded the server after each order that it would need to be gf by when I got my main dish (lemon salmon), it was made with breadcrumbs! I sent it back to the kitchen and waited 15+ minutes for a new dish to be made for me without the breadcrumbs. I expected the server to at least discount my check due to the mess up but he barely even apologized for it. Unrelated to gf: the same server never asked if we needed anything more of it if we would like more drinks, etc. To:DR: yummy gf uuu
Excellent food. Items are listed as gluten free or available as gluten free. The waiter explained what changes would be made to a dish that had to be modified. They have a 'taste two' (dishes) option at lunch. Had the naiting (which is a starter but technically not on the taste two menu) and the avokat dish. I will return.
This is one of my favorite restaurants to go with a group of people! The menu has normal enough items for the picky eaters but interesting items for the adventurous eaters. Many restaurants I find myself saying needing to say "gluten free means no bread, croutons, wheat, soy sauce..." But they need no education here. Every server is well versed in the ingredients and will always check/work with the chef to be sure (I have allergies to wheat, nuts, and dairy). The best part - their gluten free selections aren't simply chicken or salmon with no sauce but dishes designed to be gluten free (my favorite is a coconut milk seafood dish steamed in banana leaves).
No issues with glutening, had a delicious fresh-tasting meal. GF options listed in a separate section of the menu, many vegetarian options as well. Edit: above original review from 5/30/13, have eaten there 2 more times since then, and each time was delicious & safe for celiacs.
