I have come to this location in Mira Mesa a few times now. The employees are very friendly and willing to investigate my questions. There are plenty of options that are naturally GF as well as others than can be modified (no Pita bread). I've enjoyed the Falafel Starter, Falafel Plate, and Bistro Beef Kabob. Can't wait to try the Vegan Luna Vida Bowl. I normally react at restaurants but not here!

I went in and asked about gluten free options and the employee was VERY knowledgeable and was immediately able to tell me everything I could/could not have. The falafel and gyro cannot be made gluten free because they are premade with something that has gluten (a spice I think?). But aside from that and the pita bread pretty much everything is gluten free, all of the signature plates, bowls, etc. I informed him of my celiac and asked about cross contamination and he said he can notify the kitchen staff to sanitize the prep area and change their gloves. I ordered one of the signature plates and did not get sick! Definitely recommend to gf people including celiac :)

I stopped in, downloaded the app, went in to order. When I asked the guy of the crispy chickpeas were in a shared fryer he said it was in a fryer with meat but it would be OK because only other vegetarian food was in the fryer.

Clearly this guy doesn’t understand gluten free. The app is hard to tell which food items are safe, there’s no gf menu. I left immediately this place is definitely not safe to eat at if you have any allergies.

Only good for vegan or vegetarian food.

I am a symptomatic Celiac. Talked to the manager Steve about GF food. They were aware and immediately responded to accommodate GF food. They take enough precautions changing gloves and preparing food in separate area. You can enjoy their yummy chicken, fish , salad etc with rice. Don’t order any bread and you will be fine. Also thy have a dedicated dryer for fries and falafels. They are safe to consume. I tested with NIMA tester too. Will highly recommend this place for CELIAC.

They have fresh & delicious food! I do have to double check what they give me (but I do that at all places). Sometimes there is a disconnect between the kitchen & people taking g the order. They are very accommodating when errors are made! I Am also allergic to many other things including egg, sesame, dairy…
