Some items are celiac safe, some might have cross. Definitely a place to be there in person and judge the situation. But eaten there consistently and not gotten sick!
Knowledgeable staff. Very tasty salads and proteins.
Everything that is GF was marked as so and was delicious, though, I’m pretty there is the possibility of cross contamination just because of the way the line is set up. Will come again, but I am also not celiac, just intolerant!
Mango chicken bowel without mango sauce. Delicious and Nima approved!
Communication was incredibly difficult in a rushed buffet style. Lots of utensils moving from item to item with guaranteed cross-contamination.
Decent food for the airport. Staff knew what changes to make to dishes to make gluten free.
Everything clearly marked. We had Mango a Chicken without the mango sauce!
Staff were amazing, so many gluten free options from salads through to meats etc and even chocolate brownies! We found the staff knowledgeable and so helpful and so so friendly! This is my new favourite place. The yummiest and fresh food!
WARNING: they have changed ALL their gf recipes to include RUE. We are no longer safe there and can only eat the chicken with no sauce. Very sad, this place used to be great for celiacs/gluten intolerant people.
Yeah they have gluten free ingredients. Great. But they're right next to and being spilled on by glutenous items. And being served with the same utensils.
Is no one in the world aware of cross contamination?
Since their main service is their line, I called ahead to see if they can prepare my meal separately due to gluten intolerance. Their wonderful manager, Dustin, not only reassured me that they could but that if needed he would personally oversee he preparation of my food. I arrived with a few coworkers the same day. When I went to order, not only was my food being prepared but Dustin met me and said he had already placed the order for me. He also informed me that the macarons are gluten free but may be exposed to cross contamination, but the vegan brownies, which were individually wrapped are completely safe. The staff were also awesome and helpful, price was great. The salmon avocado salad arrived and it was incredible- salmon was perfectly cooked and cold, dressing was made with fresh dill and the cucumbers were lightly pickled in a refreshing vinegar which maintained its crunch. Portion was so large, I only could get through half the bowl! Brownies were sooo good! While we were eating, Dustin came by and checked to see how I liked my salad and I told him it was great. An all around excellent experience- amazing food and PHENOMENAL customer service! See you all again soon! (This review was also posted on Yelp)
Everything was cafeteria style so I didn’t eat from the bar to avoid risk of cross contamination. I called in advance and they told me they had many items labeled gluten free, which looked generally okay but was right up next to other non gluten free items. For celiacs, this is generally unsafe, but may be fine for less sensitive people. I did however order a lemonade, which was gluten free and tasted good!
The staff was pleasant and knowledgeable, however they serve from a line. Half way through my GF chicken and veggie bowl I found a glob if macaroni and cheese. They offered to make another meal. I opted for a refund and their sincere apology. It’s not that they don’t know or care; they just are serving a whole lot of folks in a hurry.
Everything is clearly labeled but staff is extremely unknowledgeable and somewhat rude. Thy told me “almost everything” is “basically” gluten free, even though I’d say more than half the items contained gluten. Would avoid if super sensitive.
Fast food buffet line with clearly marked GF options. (Different salads etc, but also mains: gf short ribs and Gf mashed potatoes and amazing looking gf macarons and brownies)
Patient and helpful staff, tending to my gf needs. Delicious food. Pricey, but so is every restaurant in the airport.
A lot of options that taste good and are good for you! They’re not dedicated gluten free but everything is labeled.
Went in and saw all of their food was served cafeteria style. I was concerned about cross contamination risk, since a scoop from a gluten free item could touch a non-gluten free item on a plate. I told the server about my concern and asked if it would be possible to get food directly from the kitchen. I got some attitude, an eye roll, and an under the breath comment to her co-worker about how hard I was making this. We decided to leave at this point since they obviously didn't seem interested in accommodating my gluten allergy. I'm hoping this was just the attitude of the one employee and not systemic.
The choices for gluten free items was very limited. I was sad because there were no gf salad options other than green salad. I added poached salmon and it's delicious, but $17!? No gf soups, and the soups looked amazing.
Lots of great gluten free salads, hot dinners, and desserts.
After a culinarily disappointing trip, finding Lemonade at my terminal was a real joy. I have Celiac Disease and they easily accomodated my needs. A selection of foods are served in portions from a cafeteria-style line, but this is better than cafeteria-style food--I had seared Ahi, mushroom soup, and tomato, basil, and mozzarella stacks. Foods are clearly marked for allergies and vegetarian, but make sure to also tell them that you have Celiac, as some of the add-on sauces are not gluten-free.
I love all the fun salads & vegetable dishes here. Good options for GF/dairy-free/nut-free/vegan and everything in between. And if you need something sweet they have several flavors of tasty lemonade, French macarons, & flourless cookies. Everything is clearly marked & the staff is very helpful.
Well labeled food choices including a dessert! (Macarons). definitely glad they were in my terminal and would be back. Tried the curry butternut squash salad and it was delicious.
Excellent option when traveling thru LAX. Well worth going to Terminal 5. High end cafeteria style. Well labeled gourmet salads, soups, fish, meat. Price reasonable for LAX.
I have celiac and ate here and did not get sick.
I had chicken jerk soup and sautéed veggies in olive oil.
Great buffet restaurant in LAX terminal 5. I won't eat at chipotle because of possible cross continuation but this place does it right. They are very careful to label. Prepare and serve the gf food separately. What a treat!
At the LAX airport. It is cafeteria style with multiple well labeled choices to pick from.
