Chef came and spoke to us and detailed all their steps to avoid any cross contamination, and the waiter was very knowledgeable as well. Menu was clearly marked, though the waiter clarified which items labeled GF have cross contamination risks and which did not. All the food was delicious and the staff was super accommodating!

What a gem! Kitchen is able to change many items to gluten free and some also are dairy free. Beef Shawarma was delicious! So we're the stuffed grape leaves. I had a yu.my ri e pudfing made with coconut milk for dessert. The kitchen makes everything from scratch. The chef will talk to you about your food allergies!

Incredible food. Great service. Family owned. Celiac family member, no poisoning on the visit (many shared plates, as well). Greater than 50% of the menu can be made GF (well labeled).

Food was great. So many options for GF they also marked Vegan items on the menu. They even had GF/V dessert items which was really nice to see. Service was great, would definitely go back. It was expensive but worth it in my opinion.

They have GF items clearly marked on the menu, along with vegetarian/vegan. Their falafel is marked gf! We went for lunch and they do not have a lunch menu. It’s expensive but it’s on King Street. We had the chef’s hummus with pomegranate seeds, and even though the waiter said it came with crudités they brought it with ours, then charged extra for crudités. We had the lentil soup, falafel, and fried halloumi. Everything was very good, but it ended up being $80+ for lunch. It’s small, clean, with clean bathrooms. I’m not sure I’d go again, but it is very nice that they have an adequate number of marked GF items.

The food was absolutely phenomenal. We had the grape leaves, hummus, baba ganoush, beef shawarma, and haloumi cheese. They were all amazing, especially the hummus, cheese, and shawarma! They will bring the hummus out with cucumbers and carrots instead of pita. GF items are marked on the menu and they take extra precautions when you tell them it’s celiac. It is quite pricey though.

Excellent food and they prepare everything without cross contamination if you mention you have celiac or a gluten allergy. Most of the menu is GF and they will replace the pita with veggies for hummus, labneh, other dips. Falafel, potatoes, other fried food have a separate fryer if you request it.

Phenomenal food and very informed staff for gluten free/celiac. Menu is clearly marked to what is GF and the majority that isn’t marked GF can be modified by not including the pita bread. The owner is very attentive to allergies and even supervised much of our food preparation to ensure there was no cross contamination.

I grew up eating Lebanese food (grandparents) and this is some of the best I have ever had. We had 5 different apps and 3 entrees and all were great.

Everything is very clearly labeled and everyone is beyond accommodating! Anything that’s served with bread, they’ll replace with sliced vegetables. I’ll be back for sure!

The staff & owner were very knowledgeable about gf items & most were marked on the menu. However after talking with the owner, many other items could be made gf because all food is made from scratch. I have been there twice & it was very good both times. You could also tell they use high quality ingredients in their dishes! Will definitely go back every time we are in the Charleston area!
