Not sure what's up with all of the negative comments. I've been eating here a long time (before and after my celiac), and I've never gotten sick once. They've always taken great care with me and we have many other food allergies in my family. The food is very pricy but it's a good place for a celebration.
great food, great service. I thought I'd never be able to eat Chinese food again after my celiac diagnosis (I am first generation Chinese, too!). but this place has great authentic food and most importantly, they understand how serious celiac is. I go at least once a month and they always have so many good suggestions! The authentic Shanghai menu is an absolute treasure and they can do almost everything gluten free.
Never Again! They have a "Gluten Friendly" menu ( meaning they cannot guarantee no cross contamination). But, BEWARE, the queso and tortilla chips listed on the appetizers list is not gluten free. The chips are actually made of corn meal and wheat flour. When I questioned the waitress about the chips (because it was noted on one of the salads to not order the accompanying chips) if these were the same chips and were gluten free, she said that they were different chips and did not contain gluten. I found out the hard way that she was wrong! If I could give 0 stars I would. Never again!
This place is AMAZING! The staff is super friendly and they ask you if you have dietary needs/preferences (GF, Paleo, Vegan, etc.) and guide you through their wide variety of choices. They have specials every day in addition to their regular menu. Everything they have to offer is completely organic and home made. Quite simply the best restaurant food I've ever had, period. This was the first time my husband has ever said that someone cooks better than me! And I was proud to admit that he was right! A definite regular hangout and repeat restaurant! You just have to try it for yourself to believe it!
This is my new favorite restaurant in NYC! Bistango was the high of me and my boyfriend's weekend. I am gluten free and dairy free and the restaurant was already accommodated to them both. Scott, our waiter, was excellent! He provided us with recommendations that were phenomenal. I cannot preach about this place more!
Glutened, most likely because of a common cooking surface or utensil. Even though we were paranoid and made sure they understood celiac disease was more than just an upset tummy and that common utensils are enough to contaminate.
I totally understand that in any kitchen where there's gluten, cross contamination can happen – but as a business that labels itself as being totally understanding to people with celiac disease and gluten intolerance, this was a huge disappointment. The facts that their floors haven't been mopped in probably years, and that the menu was a confusing mess – should have been big red flags, but we wanted to give them a chance.
We used to go in to Papa's quite a bit, but due to his location and our work schedule it hasn't been possible for a while. Well we finally got over there and so glad we did. New Menu was excellent to be able to tell what was okay or could be done gluten free. If it doesn't have Bread, Wrap or Roux it's probably good to go! We had the chicken po boy over rice, red beans and rice, coleslaw and applesauce. Yumm!!!! Thanks Papa and Mama for training your staff. They actually asked when we ordered Gluten Free: "Is this a preference or allergy". We said allergy and they said we ask because the allergy requires special handling, changing gloves, getting items from another area, etc. Wow thank YOU!!!!!
Amazing food, atmosphere, and staff at all of their locations. Their gluten free menu is extensive. Their queso is delicious and I've had almost all of the gluten free tacos and I havent been disappointed! My two favorites are the one with the mushroom, and the one with the barbacoa.
Just so you know, the one with the mushroom, and the one with the avocado, have the mushroom and avocado covered in cornmeal. It freaked me out when I got it, but then saw it was just cornmeal so it's safe to eat, and it was nice to have some change like that!

This is a nicer burger joint than your typical fast food place. Its pretty much on the same level as a Smashburger. You can get the burgers lettuce wrapped, so that is a nice convenience. I enjoyed this place and will definitely be back.
Zio's has an extensive gluten free menu. When I asked my server about some things, like if the gelato was gluten free, he tried to go get the answer and someone told him that it wasn't, but he wasn't too sure of the answer. It was plain chocolate gelato, with no cookies, so it was fine. my point is that I do agree with another reviewer's comment about the staff not being able to answer questions. However, the sheer size of their menu is good enough for me. You will not be limited to a salad or burger with no bun here!
