Review of The Halal Guys

15 White St, Cambridge, MA 02140

Overall Rating


I was really nervous about eating here but I was pleasantly surprised! Only the falafel and lamb are gluten-free. The falafel and French fries are the only things that are fried (French fries are gluten free as well), so the oil is safe.

The person serving me (maybe the manager)? Was super knowledgeable about allergies/gluten and brought up the fryer oil before I could ask. I asked him to change his gloves which he happily did, but he also mentioned that everything was served using separate tongs so there’s no cross contamination. (All the toppings have their own serving utensil kept in the bin.)

The rice is gluten free so you can get a falafel or lamb plate with French fries!

Pretty much all the toppings, including the white sauce are gluten free (except for the tabbouleh obviously). Halal Guys also has an allergen list on their website you can check.
