Grabbed takeout and everything was delicious! Pretty much all but a few items on the menu are gluten free. We got the chicken tikka masala, the butter chicken, and chicken krahi with a side of the roasted papad. Amazing!

This is our go to place for Indian with our daughter with Celiac who also has to be dairy free. Menu is labeled GF and Vegan. Daughter has her favorite Lamb Curry and owner knows when we walk in what she is getting and how she likes it. There are other items, but typically we are going because she wants the curry.

The rest of us have no dietary issues, but if we order something that is safe for our daughter owner will highlight it and ask if we want to order it less spicy so she can have some. On things that one might think is safe (if not reading the menu) owner will highlight it isn't and why (usually it is a cross contamination with preparation on how potatoes are cooked in oil).

Much of the menu is gluten free. It all tastes great.

The absolute best Indian food we’ve ever had! The owner came out and helped us with recommendations. Trust her! She also asked what dietary restrictions there were before offering anything, and thankfully about 95% of their menu is gluten free. And the food! Wow!!!!!! So good, attentive service, and did I mention how friendly the owner is? Don’t let the location of this place fool you, it is a diamond in the rough, and we will be back whenever we pass through again!

The menu was clearly labeled with GF and there were many choices. The lady that took our order was knowledgeable about Celiac's Disease and even helped my family of 5 navigate nut and seafood allergies, too. The food was spectacular! We ordered Palak Paneer, Chicken Tikka Masala, Ginger lamb, Punjabi chicken and Butter Chicken. The service was super friendly and a little slow, but 100% worth it! So happy with this restaurant!

The majority of the menu is gluten free. Very knowledgeable about what is gluten free, was warned that anything fried would not be due to shared fried. The food was excellent and spiced according to my preference.

This place is amazing! Gluten free options clearly noted on the menu and the proprietor was very knowledgeable about Celiac Disease and cross contamination. Ate here at both lunch and dinner, ordering off the menu both times to avoid cc. Food was delicious and both my dad and I (we both have Celiac Disease) were just fine. Fantastic service and very tasty food.

Dinner menu has gf options marked. I went for the lunch buffet and the manager was very knowledgeable about which items might have ingredient or cc issues. Another celiac overheard the conversation & said he eats everything on the buffet except naan at least once a week and has never been sick. Food was fantastic.
