I used to love this place but they have gotten pretty careless if you are celiac or very sensitive. Nice that they are knowledgeable but almost everything has cross contamination from getting stuffed in pitas. Got very sick

Delicious food that is Celiac Friendly! They have a printed out allergen list if you ask. Only three things on the menu have gluten (Couscous, pitas, And baklava.). Friendly service and very welcoming. I will be coming back again.

Celiac should be careful for cross contamination. The hummus spoon is vigorously rubbed onto pita bread. Be careful.

Good GF options. Lots of items are served with bread, so you need to avoid that.

Ok...I had high hopes about Naf Naf because their website has a clearly marked allergen menu and only a few items are not gluten free: the steak, couscous, tabbouli, desserts, and pitas. However, there is absolutely no way that the food is safe due to the high and unavoidable amount of cross-contamination. The chicken is cooked on the same grill and right next to the gluten-containing steak. The falafel and Naf fries are cooked in the same fryer as the gluten-containing “chicken schnitzel,” a specialty item not on the regular menu. All of the other ingredients are so close together in the service bar that some cross-contamination is inevitable, and all of the tongs, spoons, etc. touch the pitas. If you’re just gluten sensitive then maybe you’d do ok but I don’t suggest Naf Naf for celiacs.

I wouldn't recommend coming here if you have Celiac. I spoke to the manager who was knowledgeable about gluten free, and directed me to go to their website to see their allergies information. He had staff pull food from the kitchen rather than the line (similar to chipotle serving style), but I still had a moderate reaction. Food was pretty delicious but too bad they weren't able to avoid cross contamination.
