Our waitress knew what celiac was and brought out a separate gluten free menu. We asked how the food was prepared and she said there was a separate area of gluten free cooking. You can see the kitchen so we could see everything going on. I have very bad celiac and I didn’t get sick!
We got an appetizer of muscles and I got shrimp Alfredo for dinner. It’s some of the heartiest food I’ve had in awhile. Absolutely delicious and I didn’t get sick.
This place has a great atmosphere and very friendly and knowledgeable staff. It was a little pricey but worth it for sure!
— Separate gluten-free menu
All the dinning options here have a gf menu. However it’s listed as “gluten sensitive”. So definitely not safe for anyone with celiac
I ate at B-Lux Burger and the chef came out to my table to go over options. I didn’t get sick! Many of the restaurants at Kalahari had gluten free designations beside items on their menus. I didn’t see many options in the “to go” stores, but the room had a microwave and a refrigerator, and I brought my own snacks.
We ate at the Ivory Coast Restaurant in the main lobby. They display a gf menu at the hostess stand. The staff was very knowledgeable and the chef himself brought out my daughter’s meal. Our waitress, Heather, was super attentive and made sure that I didn’t share my meal with my daughter because the teriyaki sauce on my dish was not gf. We felt very at ease because of the staff’s attention to detail.
Sorentinos - with an unadvertised gluten free menu, we lucked out here. Concerned staff and really, and surprisingly, fabulous food made our stay. Apparently the gf pasta was homemade and it tasted that way. Our antipasti and mozz was great too.
Had breakfast at Ivory Coast. The waitress was very knowledgeable. They had gluten free toast even though it wasn't on the menu. Food tasted good and I didn't get a reaction.
Stay away from the buffet! The manager went through the limited options they had and both my kids got sick. Ugh! Ivory Coast Restaurant is the only safe choice but, limited menu. No one here really understands food allergies. We had a good but expensive ($16) pizza for lunch, but it wasn't crowded and it took forever for them to make. Just not an easy place to eat with Celiac. Sad.
Spoke to food manager before we arrived and he did a GREAT job going over their food preparation techniques and he was very aware of cross-contamination issues. We ordered from the pizza pub and even the person on the phone was aware of cross-contamination, when it was delivered to our room the delivery person had the boxes separated too. We ate at Ivory Coast and my daughter was thrilled to have a GF grilled cheese and (baked) fries. Very happy!
gluten free is an after thought. they do have a gluten free bun but didn't bother trying to make it look or taste good. Will bake fries or tater tots for you. I think cross contamination is an issue. I didnt get completely sick after but had some mild symptoms and didn't feel very good.
I ate at the buffet for breakfast and it was very satisfying. they made me gluten free pancakes but they did not taste good. I suggest they change to hungry man or Biscuit brand. They need a fryer for gluten free only.
The staff was very friendly and they have a gluten free menu at the Ivory Coast but it is limited. Waitress had no problem asking them to change gloves before making my food and did warn me that they do not have a dedicated fryer.
This resort has several restaurants but not one has a gluten free menu, nor are staff aware of Celiac disease and the risk of cross-contamination. One restaurant employee even told me I should bring my own food to the resort. Great resort otherwise, but don't plan on eating well here.
