Almost everything on the menu is GF or can be prepared GF and is vegan or vegetarian. I substituted veggies for the flatbread that came with hummus. They don’t have a dedicated fryer, I didn’t react to anything. The menu has changed since I was here a few years ago. Serving sizes are smaller for the hummus, skewers are new, the shrimp skewer was 4 pieces, and ridiculously $$$. Dishes were very flavorful, falafel is always a favourite, we also had sprouting broccoli , smashed potatoes, beef kafta skewer (comes with the whipped goat cheese). A delicious meal overall but very expensive for what you get.

Celiac

Review


The food was incredible, and my server went out of the way to make sure all of my food was prepared intentionally. Most of the menu can be prepared GF except the flatbread, but they give you crackers instead. I felt great after eating there.

When I called the restaurant to ask if they could accommodate someone with celiac disease, the hostess warned me that they do cook their flatbread in house. But, she (and our server) told me that many celiacs eat here and return, so it must not be an issue unless you are extra sensitive to flour in the air.

Never had a problem here and they have always taken it seriously when I mention I have celiac. I don’t eat here much lately because the prices have increased 50-100% over the past few years. But the food is absolutely delicious.

Got horribly sick here even though they assured me it would be easy to accommodate me because most of the food was naturally gf. They were careless, and a dish got sent out with breadcrumbs in it.

Celiac friendly?

No
