    The food is delicious, the portions are good & the atmosphere is nice as well. I have a problem with their saag paneer which should be traditionally gluten free but I am always a little sick the next day after eating it so I'm not convinced it is gluten free. Recently I got sick from their Channa Masala (Punjabi Chole), and the next day I tested the leftovers with the Nima gluten tester and it came back positive for gluten.Their baingan bharta is delicious and confirmed gluten free by my Nima. I tried to contact the owner via email to discuss how to ensure next time the chole is gluten free but my email was ignored. Now I see they are telling people they can't prevent cross contamination. Such a shame for a cuisine that everywhere else usually has dishes safe for celiacs. I wish this restaurant would step up and address this because it really is a great restaurant, sad.

    As soon as I said that I have celiac the server called the manager over and he said they can’t accommodate the allergy because of cross contamination.
