Staff was not familiar with what gluten free is. The buffet line serving utensils we're swapped, and lots of opportunities to cross contaminate on the buffet line...also no lamb or beef in the buffet line, and judging buy how bad the buffet tasted I would not waste my money on ordering anything from the menu either.
I have been here four times now, and this last time I became ill by the end of the meal. as before I asked a lot of questions and was told that some dishes "might have a little bit of flour" in it. I was, as before, directed to the large curry section (away from breads and apps) as this was safe. My party ordered 3 dishes and mango lassis which were all good. At the end of the meal I was very naseous and 20 minutes later once home I was sick. I'm not sure what happened as each dish was confirmed to be safe and I have ordered them previously. I probably will not go back. It's sad because on their menu they state gluten free available, but I am not sure they know what they are doing.
Just ate here at the recommendation of other reviewers. Summary: The 3 items I ate were awesome, but beware that there is a little bit of misunderstanding what GF truly means or requires... Due to Gluten sensitivity for both I and my daughters I ask A LOT of questions before ordering at restaurants. The host/server asked me if I was a GF allergy or dietary choice. I said allergy, but not full blown celiac. The server said "well we do have a GF naan bread, but we do we have to use the tiniest amount of gluten to help it stick to the oven." Wow. That floored me. By definition the GF is no longer GF. I said no, I'll pass on that. +1 for admitting and knowing what they do, - 1 for not fully understanding the meaning of GF! They recommend samosas which are deep fried. Sounded good but guess what - they use a common fryer that also cooks gluten stuff. So Celiacs and others can't have deep fried stuff here without chance of reaction. After we had this all sorted out he did steer me to a wonderful cheese and onion appetizer and I had the chicken tikka masala and it was FANTASTIC! No reactions 12 hours later so it would appear to be GF. They serve a pappadom (chick pea flour) that is oven baked with 3 GF toppings and they were excellent. All curries are claimed to be GF. I would definitely eat here again, and encourage others to do so. They can adjust the heat (spice level) of each dish so you can go mild to OMG. I went with a 3 (medium) and it was great.
I just walked in off the street to this place with no idea what it would be like. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that just about everything's gluten free except for the flatbreads. And here's the kicker: they will specially make gluten-free flatbread for you upon request. The food's great. I will be a repeat customer for sure.
