They have a separate gluten free and vegan menu. Specify they have a dedicated fryer however, only 2 dishes in the appetizer plate came back gluten free - Ragda patty and black chickpeas. Tested the main entree plate (different dishes) and that showed gluten. The 2 dishes that tested gluten free were extremely good.
Had a fantastic meal here. As other reviewers have stated, both the host at the front and the waitress were careful to note that cross contamination was a possibility. As a sensitive celiac, this would have scared me off if it wasn’t for the confidence of other reviewers on the app (thanks for that). I ate everything they served me on the fixed gluten free menu, which they further modified to remove onions. I felt full but not sick after.
The server mentioned one of the owner’s daughters is celiac. Seems they take it seriously.
Will be going again.
We were very excited to see that they had a dedicated gluten free fryer. The manager did warn us when we walk in that the kitchen is not 100% gluten free so there is cross covtami action risk. We tested 5 items with our Nima and no gluten was found in anything.
When I walked in, I asked if they had gluten free options and he hesitated to say that they can accommodate, but also made sure to tell me that they do not promote themselves as a gluten free destination.
Incredible ambiance though!
Vatan offers authentic Gujarati food along with a unique ambience.
