Most of the staff was knowledgeable about those of us who need to be totally gluten-free. However, not all the staff. The menu was marked well with LOTS of GF options. However, when my meal came out...they said it is normally served with the rice. They advised I not eat it. Later we got to talk with the main person, who did indeed say it was GF
This is one of my favorite restaurants in the area for gluten-free vegan options. I've eaten at Indus dozens of times since May 2012 and never had a problem. The entire vegetarian menu is gluten-free so even the lunch buffet is accessible. My favorites are the okra (I haven't had a problem like previous reviewer, perhaps it was the meat dish), Chana masala (chickpeas), Baingan Bharta (eggplant) and spinach dosas. I have Celiac and have always left with a happy belly after eating from the many vegan options.
Not reliably celiac safe. I'm giving Indus 2 stars rather than 1 because the first time I ate here in July 2013 I both enjoyed my meal and didn't get sick. This time, however, after trying again and again to confirm gluten free, I got really sick from eating Bhindi (okra) and lamb vindaloo with plain basmati rice. Both dishes are listed as GF on their menu. They are NOT. Our server appeared to have no idea what gluten was, the first sign I shouldn't have relied on prior experience.
What a find. I love this place. The food is delicious. The GF menu is extensive. For the non-GF diners in your party, the weekend buffet is excellent and affordable. Classy staff and atmosphere too.
