NOT Celiac safe, all food cooked on shared equipment with shared utensils.

Be careful here. Things marked GF are not always GF. Baja tacos say GF on the menu but are made with an ingredient that has "trace" gluten. Also fries and other things are marked GF but are fried with everything else. Read the fine print.

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked their food. I didn't know it was a vegan restaurant. I had the Bangkok bowl and it was delicious and satisfying without the meat. My husband had the portabella burger and that was good too. I could become vegetarian if I could cook like them.

Some gluten free options are marked but they don't have a gluten free fryer so many things that are marked gf are not actually safe.

Very friendly and helpful service. Explained the restaurant does not a dedicated fryer - so some of the items marked as gluten-free are not celiac safe. However, there were options on the menu that could be made gluten-free with a high degree of confidence there would not be cross contamination.

This used to be an amazing place with friendly staff to eat a safe meal. Now not only are there less GF options, but it seems there are no longer any extra precautions taken to ensure the meal is safe for Celiac when requested. The quality of service in general has also deteriorated greatly in the past 5 years or so. I’m sad that this place we used to love is no longer recognizable.

A bunch of things on the menu (fries, etc) are listed as gluten free but are made on the same fryer as gluten items. Make sure to double check if your food is actually gluten free!

Amazing food! I've never tried to eat vegan but I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious this all was. Seriously tasty and really filling. I spoke to the woman at the counter and she said they would change gloves, utensils, and work surfaces when preparing my food; I have celiac and am very sensitive but I didn't have a reaction to anything. However, some of their gluten free menu items are fried in a non-dedicated GF frier so be careful when ordering!

UPDATE: I tried eating here again on my last trip and I was very sick. I wouldn’t risk it when there are so many other gluten free options in the city.
