    Gluten free options labeled on the menu and the waiter checked with the chefs about items he was unsure about and to ensure no cross contamination. I had the hummus sampler with rice crackers and Shwarma chicken salad. Delicious and no reaction after!

    They were willing to make substitutions, even on a dish they don't normally do substitutions on, to make it possible to get what I wanted. Many places won't do this!

    This place is delish! Even before I went gluten free the menu here was always full of options it was hard to decide. After going GF I took my mom to eat there one day and was just gonna stick to kabobs n hummus but saw they had a gluten free menu. I was surprised to see just as many options and even find all my favorite items in their gluten free version. Best place to go to fill up on new gluten free food! Yummm

    Great food, good service. The lamb was delicious. The bread delivered to the table was incredible according to my husband and he was happy with his dishes too.

    Can't speak to the food because I ultimately decided not to dine here, but I was surprised to find the manager so uninformed and unaccommodating regarding celiac and cross-contamination concerns given all the positive reviews from others on this app. When I arrived and asked to speak to the manager about their GF options and what kind of kitchen policies they have to prevent cross-contamination with gluten containing items the manager did not understand what I was talking about at all. I tried explaining what I was asking in different ways but he could not even tell me if they use separate/clean cookware for GF/allergy sensitive dishes. He was very rude and condescending during this exchange and kept pointing to the GF symbols on the menu as if that explained everything. He said others come in and order GF items and just eat it, they don't ask all these questions. At that point I decided it wasn't worth the risk to my health and we left. Very disappointing experience.

    Notified staff of severe gluten intolerance. They still put a pita in the bag, which dusted flour all over the lids of our food containers.

    All GF items were marked on the menu plus additional items could be made GF. Our server was well aware of Gluten and cross checked on who required GF once the order was taken and when food was served. My GF daughter received GF crackers when we received normal bread. My daughter had lamb tenderloin with rice and vegetables which she said was exceptional! The whole family enjoyed our meal!!

    Hummus comes with rice crackers instead of pita if you let them know you are gluten free. We tried the hummus trio of traditional, garlic and spicy all of which were great but the garlic was my favorite. The menu is clearly marked with what is GF and there are many great options for meals and starters. Everyone of the four in our party loved their meals. This was a hit and we will be back.

    Terrific food! however I still had gotten sick after eating there. Not sure how come, could have been cross contamination. Be sure to speak to a wait staff to confirm. Our waiter had changed out, first one did not understand English very well, not sure if the cooks took all precautions.

    Delicious food, much of which is naturally gluten free. And they will bring out veggies and rice crackers instead of bread to go with your mezze.

    Several GF options. Waitress brought pita and olive oil blend to the table. When I asked if she had a GF alternative, she didn't bat an eye, warned me that the olive oil wasn't GF, and hurried over some rice crackers. Really good experience with them. Oh, and yeah it was delicious!

    They have a solid set of nice gluten free options. They also provide rice-crackers with the hummus, which is a surprisingly nice alternative to the bread, and works as an appetizer. A little pricey, and fancy, though still fairly kid-friendly if you go early.
