The menu was clearly labeled. Food was delicious.

The first time I ate here, the woman I gave my order to was a bit confused when I asked for gluten free but she waved the manager over. He gave clear directions to someone preparing my meal to wash his hands and take care with my order.

Ate here twice with no problems.

Lots of GF options available, it’s a fast food restaurant and so not sure what cross contamination is like behind the scenes but they list all allergens clearly on their menu. Lots of rice bowls, warm salads, vegan options. The staff here didnt hear well when I said I couldn’t eat gluten but they did say “gluten free” when they brought out my order. It’s fast paced so I don’t always feel like they have time to chat but I’ve never gotten sick after, not that that’s any evidence of anything!

OMG. loved the food. Haven’t had a fried chicken sandwich ever. The minute we walked in the staff was super nice and answered all our questions. Everything is gluten free there except the pitas. The food was amazing and I will be returning. Absolutely amazing food and service

Limited menu, but will expand in the future because it’s a new restaurant. Everything is clearly marked. Staff is very knowledgeable. Everything is baked, so no issue of contaminated fryer. There’s a location in DC I frequent, so I was thrilled to see one closer to home. Really delicious and I recommend the spicy chicken nuggets!

GF chicken nuggets! Very high quality “fast” food. All sandwiches can be on GF bun. Chicken is baked in a nut and sunflower seed encrusted coating, delicious.

Good nuggets. I’ve never had a more tasteless, dry chicken burger. Don’t spend your money on that. The bun was dry, like old bread. The burgerbun simply fell apart. The french fries were cold. Save your money.

Such great options! They have breakfast pots with poached eggs, bacon, mushrooms etc. that are gf, and for lunch they have hot boxes which are all gf and include different kinds of chicken or meatballs! They also have a few gf pastry options which didn’t look as good. Everything is clearly labeled and the server asked if I had any allergies. So happy to find this place and so awesome that they’re a chain with so many locations!

Yes they offer gluten free options but honestly I found this place very disappointing! Ordered a gluten free chicken burger they brought me a veggie burger...and then apologized and sent me a chicken one but honestly at that point I didn’t trust them. All the rest of the food was cold and tasteless and honestly for what it is it’s pretty expensive. Wouldn’t visit again.

So many gluten free options. I think only a small part of their menu isn't GF, which is nice because it's normally the other way around! I got gf chicken nuggets, fries and a brownie. They also have salads and burgers too.

Airport food is always tricky for me even though I vigilantly advocate for myself in trying to stay gluten free. Leon at the Amsterdam airport offers many nutritious gluten free choices. And, although it’s not a gluten free facility, it was safe for my consumption. Good food, and many options.

I have been eating at Leon's for about 10 years and have never had a reaction. The food is really good value for money. Gluten free options are very clearly marked. It is a life saver at railway stations like Kings Cross.

I’ve eaten at a few branches of Leon, including this one and the one in Brighton and Heathrow successfully as a Coeliac with a dairy allergy. I find the staff extremely knowledgeable about allergies and I’ve never had a reaction from eating there. The gluten free chicken nuggets and vegan Aioli are so good! As are many of the curry/rice boxes. Very good fast food at decent prices for London, plus the children enjoy it too.

As a traveler visiting London from the US, my comment is that Leon is a Godsend. Clearly marked items as GF and a knowledgeable staff make Leon a worry-free place to eat breakfast. Infinitely better than US take away for those who need GF.

Great knowledge of allergy’s Great to have the option of gluten free chicken nuggets! However it is essentially a GF form of takeaway and therefore I think a bit over priced

Tons of healthy, gluten free options, including dessert (obviously not as healthy). Ask if you have food allergies up front and menu is clearly labeled. Had the sweet potato falafel and the kale salad. I didn't love it, but would come back to try other things on the menu. Came in around lunch time and it stayed busy.

The food was so good! When I saw it was takeaway fast food I was a bit skeptical but this far exceeded my expectations! Almost everything on the menu was GF. Had the chicken satay and Thai curry and my husband and I shared the two. Both delicious! Went at lunchtime and it was busy but very fast. Also lots of vegetarian and vegan options. Very well marked menu. Good prices. About 6.50-8.50 pounds per entree which was a perfect sized portion in my opinion. Would go here again in a heartbeat if I’m in the area. Very close to both Westminster abbey and buckingham palace (kind of in between).

It’s fast food but different. I had gluten free chicken nuggets and a Thai Curry. I did not have a burger but the have them and other dishes like meatball etc. It’s food in a box and you can take away or eat in. They have wine. It was pretty good overall.
