Buffet was all gluten free, mostly vegetarian which was great for me. I did not have any reaction. My concerns are about cleanliness. There is no sneeze guard over the food. Is this not a R.I. health department regulation? I was shocked to see a guest taste the lentil dish from the serving spoon and then place it right back into the serving dish! When he saw my mouth agape in disbelief, he said oh, I’m sorry, I’ll take the spoon out. He handed it to someone who worked there, and I’m sure he didn’t explain why. I was disgusted and no longer hungry. I told them I would not eat from that dish, that it should be removed. I did not follow up to see if it was.
I was so disappointed when this ended up not being as safe option- I don’t think I’ve had authentic gluten free Indian food since I was diagnosed 14 years ago and when we went in, a staff member informed us it was only the head chef who could safely cook for celiac people, and he wasn’t there when we went in. Super disappointed, their menu looked fantastic but not always safe.
They absolutely cater to celiac, offering a chickpea naan (very similar to a dosa), and clearly marking every meal as celiac safe or not. I have never been to an Indian restaurant that was so conscious and I loved being able to enjoy my meal without worry. Also, first pakora in 3 years!! It was awesome :) staff was super friendly and the owner or manager was incredibly welcoming. Service is 5+ stars!
The first time I went there (for dinner) I had no issue. The second time I went for lunch and was delivered a plate of rice with naan on it. I had specified my gf needs as a Celiac when I first ordered. I asked for new rice, explained my issue but ended up with a gluten reaction regardless. It's disappointing because the food is delicious.
I was in for lunch yesterday with my boyfriend. I have been very nervous eating out in the six months I have been diagnosed Celiac, but the menu was so clear and easy to understand. The staff understood my allergy and I had no reaction aside from a bit of uneasiness due to the spice palette being unusual for me. No hint of a Celiac reaction now 24 hours later. Try the gluten-free chickpea bread! I ate almost the whole basket!
