Staff were unsure of which items were gluten free. They also didn’t understand the concept of cross-contamination.

Notes


ALL of our menu items are gluten-free EXCEPT for the pita bread and Tabouleh Salad. Next time you visit, you may ask for "No Bread" on the 'Chicken', 'Plate', or 'Side' items. All wraps are made with pita bread, and therefore contain gluten.

such good chicken!

I have no immediately noticeable reaction to gluten, so I can't say anything about cross contamination.

but it's nice that they have gluten info on their website.

Love the food. Super sensitive Celiac hubby has had reactions when we don't ask them to change gloves. However, they will change gloves if you ask and won't give you any grief about it. They use organic eggplant for the muttabal. GF falafel too! We have brought our own chips in to the restaurant to dip in the hummus, etc and no one has ever said anything. It's a super casual, Formica table type joint. We usually just get it to go.

Excellent food. Everything gluten free except the pita bread and the tabouleh. Our 9-year old daughter who has celiac and eats like a bird ate an entire plate herself. She can’t wait to go back. Staff very knowledgeable kept our plate with pita separate from hers. It’s our new go-to!

Wonderful experience here. First time is always a little nerve racking but felt super safe after the manager helped explain how things are prepared. Feel great after this meal. Got chicken kabob, rice, hummus, and tatziki! Will be back

I was hungry for Mediterranean food. We called around to a few local places and this place was the most knowledgeable about gluten free foods. Pretty much everything is naturally gluten free. Not the pita or wraps obviously. Lots of choices with delicious sauces. I got a bowl with chicken, rice, cucumber salad, hummus and sauces. So good and very fresh tasting!

The allergen guide says that the only items with gluten are the taboulleh salad and the pita. The server was very aware of this and had a copy of the guide next to his cash register. They were extra careful not to even put pita on my plate. Everything was yummy, and I had no bad reactions.

According to the information on their website, everything is gluten-free except for the taboula salad and the pita bread. I stayed away from both and had a wonderful, filling meal without any bad effects.
