    This place is great! Very GF friendly, even had fries and no reaction. Went back for a second time during our 5 day stay nearby, because it was so good!

    Zorba the great! We loved the gf pita, which we had never seen before. Gluten free items are clearly labeled on the menu and everything was tasty! Don't miss the round fried potato item. Like a French fry, but with an exciting shape.

    I ate here a few days ago, i am GF and DF and both options are on the menu, just make sure to say no cheese on the salad. They have GF pita bread!!! (it was a small up charge but worth it) the food was really good. I will definitely be back! The cookstaff was very nice and were as excited as I was about the pita bread lol it can get very busy in there especially for happy hour, but the hommus is half price then so get there early, I think happy hour is 4-7

    Been there twice while visiting D.C. Plenty of GF options (fries are great!). The first evening I was quite impressed since we ordered 2 separate meals with my husband (credits card reasons). He asked for GF fries. When we got the tray 'his fries', since GF were moved on my tray with GF food. Very impressive to avoid cross contamination. The second evening, probably different kitchen staff, less acknowledged, added some 'bread' in my dish..... Luckily I asked for confirmation and it wasn't GF. They cooked again and safely my meal with an extra salad per side. Well it can happen but always be cautious and ask if not sure. Anyway the whole feeling is positive and I would return again.

    Pretty good food. Menu has gluten free items marked. Chicken kabob was yummy. I got extra salad instead of a dinner roll, which was nice.

    A lot of delicious gluten free options (they even made me gluten free pita bread!) clearly marked and the staff is very knowledgeable. Will definitely be returning to eat again!

    Not only is their Greek food delicious, but I love how the fries are free from cross contamination and they always offer something to make up for GF accommodations, like extra salad in place of the pita bread. Such a nice change from places where the GF accommodation is only 1/3 of the regular entree but for the same price!!
