I’ve eaten here twice now, both times felt completely safe. They have no gluten ingredients so no room for error. I also emailed them in advance and they told me their soy sauce is GF too. Lots of yummy options!

We ordered three different selections. All three meals were delicious. The brownies were yummy as well. We will definitely order from Grainmaker again.

Beware the delivery option on their website. They offered delivery to my address, but it has taken 2 hours.

Delicious, great service, build my own options, and everything 100% gluten free. What a delight to feel safe, well fed and normal. I didn’t have to ask about ingredients or cross contact. Just order anything, eat everything, and live my best life! Can’t wait to come back!

I really want to like this place because it’s conveniently located and a dedicated GF restaurant. For the price, I’d expect the food to taste a little better, but it’s good enough in a pinch. I’ve heard the tacos are good and I’ve ordered the bowls in the past, which are fine.

Everything is GF so it's completely safe. The food is good - I usually get the tacos or poke but the bowls are also decent. They even have GF desserts. It's a fast casual/counter service place so more of a spot for takeout than a sit down meal.

Caveat if you have other allergies. They told me everything has soy in it. There was a language barrier so I am not sure if this is true. My companion enjoyed his meal at least.

All ingredients (and there are many options) are gluten free, so you are free to choose anything you want to create your bowl/taco to customize your flavor. Very good food and no reaction afterwards. Highly recommend!

This place has AMAZING food. They say everything on their menu is gluten free and I think dairy free too. They have a super helpful allergen chart in their website (but it’s not accessible from a phone) so you can see allergen information by individual ingredient. I’m obsessed.

As a family new to gluten free life, Grainmaker has been wonderful. Having a dedicated gluten-free facility takes the anxiety level down.

We've had some issues with online ordering not getting processed, but never an issue with contamination or with the food itself.

Most importantly, they have gluten-free dumplings which my daughter loves.

Delicious and safe! I've been a customer of both establishments and both are easy and convenient to meet a friend for a quick bite. The bowls are a LOT of food but very tasty, and I'm also a big fan of the tacos. 10/10 would recommend!

Their advertisement stating, “all ingredients are 100% dairy free & gluten free” was so exciting to me! I felt safe, normal, and like I didn’t have to explain my restrictions ordering there. It was refreshing. The food was delicious, and surprisingly filling. Definitely recommend the mango salsa and plantain chips. :)

Food is what you’d expect for this type of quick service restaurant. Completely gluten free, although I didn’t ask about the sourcing of all ingredients. Didn’t get sick and their take out has been helpful on multiple occasions!

Unfortunately outdoor dining wasn’t set up for lunch when we went, but ordered pick-up thru website and found a park nearby. Lots of great and tasty options. Maybe influenced by how hard it is for us to ever find them anywhere else, but the dumplings were terrific. Would definitely go again if in the area.

Yay, a dedicated gluten free restaurant in Somerville!! So nice to order anything and not worry about a shared fryer or cross contact. The dumplings are AMAZING! Many vegan and dairy free options as well. The rice noodles are great and they even have gluten free desserts!

Service has definitely improved since when they first opened. Support this 100% gluten free and Celiac safe space!

Ordered tuna and salmon poke bowls for delivery. The food was good and filling, and I had no reaction. It's a relief to be able to order from a place and know that there is no chance I will be glutened.

I’ve heard so much about Grainmaker as this is the second location for this local Boston concept. The food is amazing and they even serve cider on tap if you’d like a beverage to compliment your meal. Sometimes the line is long but it moves quickly. My wife and I absolutely love this place 10/10

We had two of their bowls last night, and both tasted off-putting. The tofu tasted sour and was definitely past its prime, and some of the vegetables (kale and bok choy) tasted foul too. I wish I could give a place that’s totally GF a better rating but serving food that’s clearly not fresh anymore is pretty bad.
