A design-your-own dish restaurant, with a lot of options. Most of the ingredients are GF, and are clearly marked as such. I had a rice bowl with chicken shishkebab and tzatziki sauce; very tasty! I recommend it.
Loved this place! They had a dedicated gf station and provide me with gf pita. I'm a sensitive Celiac and had no issues.
Delicious meal in D.C. The menu is all clearly mark what is GF. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I food was awesome and I did not get sick. Highly recommend and will return the next time we are in D.C..
Very friendly for GF folks - most of the menu qualifies, and they also have GF pita that they toasted on separate equipment while wrapped in foil. Falafels were a little small, but tasty and had plenty of chickpeas. Quick, easy, and tasty.
they separated my GF from everything else despite being busy. did not get sick so is good!
Came here twice during our stay in DC. Great options for our family member with Celiac. GF pita option. All of the protein options were delicious, but my favorite was the salmon.
Found the staff to be knowledgeable and helpful with suggestions food was good had gluten free pita bread. Well worth the visit
My wife and I came in during our trip to D.C. They heated up the gluten free pita in a separate area and made us feel at ease with their knowledge.
Gluten free pitas were fixed by separate personnel, changed gloves without us asking. Food is excellent, highly recommend.
I was so happy when I found out that a Mediterranean restaurant was gluten free because they usually aren't. The employees are very knowledgeable and they cook the gluten free food in a separate area and insured there was no cross contamination. They even have gluten free pita bread, which was a nice surprise! I would defiantly recommend this place for people who need to be gluten free!
My husband got so sick immediately after eating. Not sure if it was cross contamination or what. But he is not loving this place.
The food is incredible! I'm not extremely sensitive to gluten (even though I am medically diagnosed CD), but I did not have issues with the food.
Very friendly staff. Bread is individually wrapped and kept separate. May be some cross contamination issues with the spoons but I felt fine after and have sensitive celiac. Very nice staff.
They have a separate food prep area for GF. Go to the last register and that cashier will take care of you.
Despite advertising their gluten free options and warning of the risk of cross contamination, my initial server refused to change his glothes before preparing my meal. His colleague begrudgingly did. However. clearly a lack of education regarding gluten at this location.
It has its own GF station! Unreal!
Separate area to prep for GF options. Just go to the last register and the employee will set you up and wear fresh gloves. Lots of options for GF.
We went a couple of times to Roti on our recent visit to Washington. It was terrific and the staff was quite knowledgeable about GF. They had gluten free pita available and took care to prepare it properly. Most items were gluten free and super tasty.
Carmen, the manager, was the unbelievably accommodating and knowledgeable. He used new gloves and cleaned the grill before preparing our salmon, without even being asked. He prepared our meals personally every time we were there - once even staying late (he saw us in line as he was leaving and came back into the kitchen to prepare our meals himself). This is our new favorite restaurant. Most items can be made gf, including salmon, chicken, steak, salad and rice. The gf pita is heated in its own 'toaster'.
Very knowledgeable of GF foods. Everything, but 2 items were GF. They also have GF pita for a $2 charge. My daughter, who has Celiac Disease, had the chicken kabobs with cucumber salad, rice, hummus and salad with GF pita bread and loved it. The woman preparing the food knew to change her gloves before preparing her food and stayed with my daughter's plate from start to finish.
I loved this place! I've had gluten-free pita bread before but this was hands down the best. when I asked for gluten-free pita (because it's not really advertised) the waiter asked if it was preference or an allergy. When I told him it was an allergy he directed me a completely different preparation area. This way only one person was preparing my food with fresh gloves and my own blissfully uncontaminated toppings. The chicken roti on gf pita w/ all the fixings was phenomenal! Extra $2 is annoying but worth it. Delicious, filling meal.
Visiting DC and found this on FMGF. Awesome find! The gf pita was surprisingly delicious. I had a pita 'sandwich.' The meat (Roti chicken and steak schwarma) were so good and I'm picky about meat. The garlic sauce rocks. Was not a fan of the mixed veggies- they were ok but didn't care for the flavors and especially didn't like them on the sandwich. I'd eat them again but in the side next time. Right when we walked in the door, Manny noticed we were bewildered and gave us red carpet treatment. He was super nice, answered all our questions and was patient. Because we're gluten-free he took us over to the place in the kitchen that's dedicated to preparing the gf items. What a professional individual who made our trip here so worth it. Definitely would come back.
I just learned that Roti has gluten-free pita available - they also have a listing of all their gf menu items available online. I tried the pita yesterday; the flavor and texture was good, and they have a separate area for storing and heating them (separate from the regular pita). There is a $2 charge (boo) but I am hoping once they see there's demand for the gf option, that will go away.
All gluten free options are clearly marked. Workers are glad to switch to clean gloves for you and they have a delicious gluten free pita.
While this Roti is very clean and staff are so nice and efficient, there is an ongoing issue with couscous mixing in with the other sides. As I am only gluten intolerant and not celiac, I can tolerate a few mixed in pieces of couscous. But this would make a celiac very ill I’m aware. I don’t understand this either as simply just rearranging the order of the sides and making couscous the last item could rectify this issue. Management please take note the seriousness of this problem.
This is a fast casual Mediterranean spot with delicious food! Fresh, healthy, and tons of gluten free options. The only thing that does have gluten on their menu is the couscous and pita, and they offer a gluten free pita as well. Absolutely recommend!
Not celiac safe. I have eaten at other Roti locations and have been ok. While I was waiting I saw them making a pita wrap for the people in front of me. They touched the pita wrap and then touched spoon for the cucumber and tomato salad and squeezed the extra juice back into the container with the hand they had just touched the pita with. Not safe at all for those of us with celiac. I walked out and didn’t order food.
Not very clean saw them touching things containing gluten and then going for the products that were gluten-free my daughter has celiac and my husband this place would be very dangerous I don’t even think it was clean I walked out after walking in and just looking at what the place look like upsetting I don’t know how anybody could give it a good review. Second morning went over to the place again dirty dirty dirty and not celiac friendly cross-contamination everywhere they shouldn’t even have gluten-free pitas because nothing else is in there not doing it safely they need to get retrained
I had a bad experience here. Bad customer service and I was given attitude. They have a GF menu but uneducated staff. They made me feel like I was a burden for wanting my food to be safe. Anyone who says it’s celiac safe has not watched how their serving utensils touch other people’s toxic flour tortillas then goes back into the food before they serve you. Cross contamination all over this place. I left upset without eating here. But it would be fine for those who are not celiac.
Loved this place and as sensitive Celiac had no issues!
Great food, clearly labeled. Jason and Hugo were very accommodating, changed gloves without even asking. Great experience overall. GF Pitas are individually wrapped in foil.
I ordered a pepperoni pizza. It was amazing! The crust was the best part! The manager came out to check on me to make sure everything was okay and assured me that they are very careful with the cooking process.
Very gluten free / celiac friendly. If you tell them before you go through the line that you have a gluten allergy, they’ll wash their hands and change gloves and take you all the way down the line. Most toppings are gf and everything is very well labeled. This is a go-to for me!
The have a regular menu clearly marked with gf options and also a dedicated gf menu in stores. Most of the food options are naturally gf and all of the gf options are clearly labeled as you walk through and complete your order. They also offer gf pita, which they will warm on the grill wrapped in tin foil.
Frequented the chain's Washington DC locations. One of my favorite spots. They have delicious gluten free pitas on request. The Roti chicken is amazing. Quick food, customizable while they prepare it with all ingredients cued behind customer facing glass. Large selection, very high quality.
This place had all good reviews. However, I am super sick and glutened within an hour and a half of eating. I got the rice bowl, cucumber salad, beef, hummus, garlic sauce and roasted red pepper. They changed their gloves and all but still did not work out.
Clearly labeled and they have made improvements as GF has moved more mainstream. Pita bread is rare to find so I give them an extra star. Issues here are consistency of employee practices and cross contamination.
The food is really good and I would recommend any location but this one. This jerk with the long hair rolled his eyes at me and gave me attitude when I asked him to change his gloves. Totally not worth it. I will never come back to this location.
First time eating here I got the chicken roti rice plate. No issues. Second time eating here (today), I got a falafel salad. Totally sick tonight, incredibly sick. Sickest I've been since being diagnosed three years ago. Other reviewers say the falafel isn't GF, but the Roti menu says it is. I didn't even ask about CC because of the big GF labels on everything -- silly me. It's a bummer cause the food is amazing.
I got a sandwich and it was amazing. The waitress made sure to be the only one to touch my food to avoid cross contaminations. And she was very knowledgeable about what was and wasn't gluten free. Would highly recommend for those who are gluten free, but my mom who isn't gluten free enjoyed her meal as well!
You have to have someone help you. A lot of the food is gf , be careful around the yellow couscous and pita. They do have a gf pita that my daughter described more like a pancake. But everything is gf to go on top except the couscous. She had chicken and rice but they had a lot of salad options. Overall a good experience !
Servers change gloves, gluten free pita is delicious and price isn't terrible. Good lunch option. Potential for cross contamination with sauces since the spoons touch the non gluten free pitas, but overall they are cautious. Haven't gotten sick from eating here. Will definitely keep going back!
