    Shared the falafel and chicken schwarma plates with hubby- had my own gf pita which was a 1st! Very tasty...just wish the falafel wasn't as dense and had some parsley.

    I told our waitress I have Celiac and all my food needs to have no cross-contamination, she said I was safe. She gave me the regular pita bread with no hesitation. I asked if it was the gluten free version as requested, she said no. I ate the lamb stew later to discover I got glutened. I will not return and do not recommend Karam for fellow Celiacs. The kitchen is too risky with full wheat flour and gluten free flour and staff does not understand the seriousness of Celiac.

    Really yummy and gf knowledgable. My celiac daughter enjoyed the gf pita and French fries from a dedicated fryer (though our order was a bit soggy). The hummus was creamy and delicious. Great gf lentil soup.

    Good service, good food. I'm not too enlightened on Lebanese dishes but it hit the spot and ordered excess so I could have lunch the next day, made solid leftovers. So exciting to have pita again! If you're thinking about it, say yes. :)

    The gf pita is awesome. It is not quite like traditional pita (it's flatter, denser) but tastes delicious. I had the lamb kabob and was blown away with the delicate balance of flavors. The rice was fluffy and fragrant. The staff was helpful and kind. An all around excellent meal. I am not positive it would be celiac friendly depending on how sensitive you are, however, the staff did take care to check with me about it. They delivered a group salad to the rest of the table and had a separate plated salad for me (there are crunchies on the regular) and the gf pita had its own basket.

    Fantastic food, super friendly and helpful staff. Almost anything can be made gluten free. They are knowledgeable enough to know that tabouleh would be a bad idea because of the bulgar wheat. Once they knew I was gluten free, they kept the crunchy wheat stuff off my salad, without me even saying anything. I felt safe eating there, and I did not get sick! Yeay, Karam!
