Warning: this is written by a Celiac who NEVER eats sandwiches, even gluten free ones. First, the prices are right (from NYC ao everything here feels cheap). Second. The staff is so kind, clear and knowledgeable about Celiac. Had the egg salad avocado and the tuna salad avocado sandwiches and I swear to god they were thee best sandwiches I have ever had! Going to eat here again for sure!
The Oriental has one of the best gluten free menus I have ever had. As a sufferer of Celiacs disease- I am always a little bit afraid to go out to eat based on proprietors' lack of knowledge as to what a gluten allergy entails. I also never thought I'd be able to eat Chinese again (outside of what I could prepare myself). Not only was Mimi, the owner, well versed in gluten free details, but she was so helpful and accommodating in her recommendations. In addition, the large majority of her menu is able to be made gluten free including egg rolls (the wrappers are made of bean curd)! The salt and pepper squid are the bomb.com. If you get one thing- get that dish. The seasoning is perfect, the squid tender (fresh!) and eat it fast before the other members of your group get to it first. In addition, we had a red curry and grand marnier shrimp that were equally as delicious. I will definitely becoming back to try more dishes off this extensive menu.
FYI- it's tucked away in the Marlboro plaza on the north bound side of route 9. The proprietor has been told it's hard to find. If you call for directions- she's more than happy to guide you to gluten friendly shores.
So delicious. Grass fed beef. All menu items are clearly marked. Dedicated frier. Yummy fries. There are gluten containing shake mix ins (Oreos for ex) so when I ordered a shake I made sure to tell them to clean the shake mixer of any gluten ingredients. I don't know how careful they are if you don't ask. I'm not going to check the Celiac Friendly box till we've eaten there at least a couple of times without a reaction.
The waitress was coeliac and helped us a lot. There were many gluten free cakes. We had eggs Benedict on a gluten free toast and it was amazing. Just thought the guy at the front of the restaurant very rude. We asked him twice if we could order coffee while waiting for our table, and he said he would come to us but never did. He did serve a group of people that arrived after us though...
Wow! This place is a treasure. Definitely one of the best gluten free meals I have had in years. I NEVER thought I would have a rubin like this. The bread was delicious and fried. The place was extremely busy but moving efficiently and the service was good. Can't believe they serve breaded gluten free chicken! REAl gluten free! I felt very safe. can't wait to visit New York again and have another meal.
