I love this place. It’s the only spot I eat at that isn’t 100% gluten free. The food is amazing, and the staff is wonderful. We go there for every special occasion. I haven’t gotten sick. I only order things that are 100% gf and not fried. No naan. The servers know what’s safe!

Disclaimer: I have eaten here about 5 times with no issues before. This review reflects a negative experience; it is not representative of each visit.

I ate here and ordered the GF labeled paneer mykanwala as I always do. The server was diligent to label my order so the kitchen would know I have a gluten allergy and take extra precautions. As I was eating my food, I came across a piece of paneer that had a dry texture like it had been cooked longer. I noticed a line through it as if it had been cooked on a kebab stick/skewer. Within an hour of eating, I began feeling symptoms. My guess is that a piece of paneer from the tandoori menu (which is marinated with gluten and not GF) must have been used in my dish. I’m not sure if it was intentional on the side of the kitchen or not. I am disappointed that such a tasty restaurant that has always been very accommodating to serving customers who can’t have gluten doesn’t feel safe for me anymore.

Delicious!!! Not for celiacs but if you just have a sensitivity there are lots of great options! Parking is a nightmare though.

The staff is very knowledgeable about celiac if you mention it. Food is fantastic but they do not have a dedicated fryer.

Was in downtown Durham at arcana and needed a bite to eat. Saw this place had a good rating and was well mentioned on GF apps so stopped in.

Gobi suka and Bhaji with chaat were great flavor and the kabobs were good as well. So chickpea breaded cauliflower, a scallion type cake with roasted chickpeas all well seasoned and flavored. The kabobs were a good assortment.

Great Food -- But Don't Trust All Their GF Claims

Viceroy is a great new Durham restaurant that combines the food of South Asia with the ambiance (and food) of a late Victorian British pub. The ambiance is charming -- at the same time whimsical and monumental, ornamental and plain. Our service on a Sunday night was outstanding. Two of our three cocktails were really special.

My party of three shared several dishes. The Siam Salad (papaya mainly) was perfectly prepared and dressed very much as one would get in a Thai restaurant, the Rogan Josh was everything you want in that dish, and the kabob platter was particularly impressive -- with several varieties of meat each cooked just right.

So the food was great. We also ordered some Indian fritters and fried battered cauliflower, which the other two members of my table said was wonderful.

Happily, many of Viceroy's dishes are gluten-free, and -- even better -- they mark them on the menu. Sadly, however, some of them are falsely marked. The fritters and cauliflower I mention above, for example, are marked as GF on the menu -- but are instead cooked in a fryer which our server said (and I had her confirm this with the kitchen) is not restricted to GF foods.

I would have given this place five stars easily, because they do feature several truly GF menu items to choose from. However, because of the false info -- very dangerous for those of us with celiac disease who are not supposed to consume more than 20ppm gluten -- I marked them down.
