Maybe just had a bad server but nearly got glutened and was served dairy (also allergic). On top of that, the food wasn’t fresh and had little flavor.

Loved this place! The server was knowledgeable, helpful, and gave us some wonderful recommendations. The food was delicious, and as a sensitive Celiac I had no issues.

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.

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!!

They had items marked on the menu as ‘gluten free’ that had been fryed with gluten containing items. Very scary watch out!

They still have a lot of gluten free items available that were not fried.

Menu clearly marked and have tons of options. But, the label fries gluten free—they share a fryer so careful there and as always make sure to tell your server you’re celiac to avoid some of the marked items. Had gluten free crackers for the dips, really delicious food!

The staff clearly does not understand cross contamination. The falafel is not gf due to a shared frier! I found this out the hard way as I was sprinting for the bathroom in DSW and doubled over in pain within 20 minutes of eating here. If you are Celiac, run far, far away!

Fantastic food! Menu clearly marked. Manager came out to talk to me and thoroughly answered my questions. I got the watermelon-feta-mint salad and lamb. Both were amazing. Walked out in a food coma.
