My husband and I are just passing through and saw the great reviews for this place. So glad we stopped! It’s a very small but clean place with knowledgeable and nice staff. We had a combination platter for 2 with beef, lamb, and chicken. Meal came with salad and different flavors of rice, all delicious. Everything was amazing! Highly recommend. I feel great after eating there and I’m very sensitive. They do bring out bread at the beginning of the meal with a couple of interesting sauces. They brought me cucumber slices instead. Both of the dipping sauces are amazing on the meat as well. I hope you’ll try it. There are plenty of vegetarian options too if that is your thing.

Knowledgeable owner and staff. Food was excellent! Will be going again soon... Was so distracted by the good food forgot to order drinks. I can not stress enough how good this place is!!! One of the most celiac friendly restaurants I have ever been in!

Nearly every dish is gluten free. The staff is welcoming and very knowledgeable about their ingredients and what is not gluten free. The kabobs are tender, rice varieties are tasty, and portions are generous. I would highly recommend the restaurant to someone who has celiac or chooses to be gluten free.

95% of their offerings are gluten free so there is very little gluten in the kitchen to begin with. Very informed and conscientious. I eat here weekly and the food is always amazing and I’ve never had a reaction. Worth noting: I am VERY sensitive/ reactive to cross contamination. My favorite eatery in the Hampton roads area.
