They were really kind and attentive to my needs as a celiac. They had a bunch of sections of the menu that were gluten free because of the traditional preparation, so there were a lot of options. I was actually a bit overwhelmed! The food tasted amazing both times I went, and they adjust the spice leve to your comforts.

The food is SO good. GF distinctions on the menu and most of the menu is naturally GF. The staff is welcoming and attentive & the restaurant is spotless. Definitely going to make this a weekly stop.

The chicken tikka masala is gluten free and delicious. Comes with free naan for the table which is separate, so it shouldn’t cause any cross contamination.

My favorite place in Norfolk as a celiac. Almost all of their dishes are completely gluten free and the free naan bread is served separately. I have never had any issues here even with the buffet. The first time I came here, the chef came out and reassured me that the dishes are safe. Really good option if you like authentic Indian food.
