Says GF, but it's not. Lots of cross contamination. Messy meat and veggie bars, menus and table tents had sauce left on them from previous diners. over from
The staff is very accommodating of any allergies or sensitivities. Simply tell them that you have an "allergy bowl", and they will cook your food on a separate grill so your food doesn't mix with anyone else's or get touched with the same implements. You build your own bowl, so there is risk of cross-contamination, but you can see what items are stored next to what you're serving. And you can always ask for them to bring an ingredient fresh from the back: just let them know you have a dietary restriction.
They are not careful what so ever for gluten intolerant or Celiac disease. I have Celiac and i did not want to chance it. Cross contamination is going to happen or has happen for others. A depressing place for gluten intolerant and celiac disease population.
Very helpful staff, and celiac friendly. They prepare allergy bowls on a completely separate cooking surface in the back, not on the main grill. Good selection of meats and vegetables to choose from. Two things that keep me from giving them a 5-star. First, very limited selection of GF sauces, and the GF sauces they did have were somewhat unusual. None of them were made with GF soy sauce as far as I could tell. Second, they couldn't tell me which of the seasonings (spices/salts/peppers/etc.) were GF, so I didn't use any of them. Because of these two issues, my bowls came out tasting pretty bland. But BD's might be right up your alley if you're GF and don't like spicy food.
Super nice staff! They will cook your food separately! If you are just sensitive like I am they will give you the option to cook it in back or they will clean the grill very well and put in dividers. I went for the grill and watched them the whole time. They were very careful even using separate utensils!
This place is a disaster waiting to happen. Actually eating there was a disaster. Cross contamination galore. The gluten free sauces are next to and/or in front of non-gf sauces. So who knows what was dropped in each sauce!!?? The salad bar was the same. Croutons by the lettuce and other fresh veggies. The soup, which is included with the meal along with the salad, was not gluten free. The place was disorganized and chaotic, but it was a Saturday night. I'm doubled over in pain now. If you go BEWARE.
I was a bit skeptical of the whole thing when I first arrived. But after talking to the chef in the allergy area, I felt pretty comfortable with the separate cooking area. The buffet prep area gets pretty hectic and sloppy, so that could be an issue.
Nasty, dirty, dedicated allergy area absolutely not even if the sign above the area says so, the considerations for cross contamination are no where to be found at the buffet area or cooking area. My husband and I ending up with the worse headaches 1 hour after we left and my digestion system hasn't recovered yet and it's been weeks. I will never ever eat there again and I warn everyone even those with no allergies to stay away just because of the filth. Need proof take a stroll through there. Can't believe this place isn't on a health inspectors list.
This is an excellent restaurant that is very allergy friendly. It's a "fix it yourself" kind of buffet where you can pick different things to throw into a stir-fry. All you have to do is tell your server that you have an allergy and they will give you an allergy ticket. They have some gluten free sauces up there and all you have to do is read the stickers. When you get all of your food, you go up to the grill and hand them your food, sauce, and especially the allergy ticket. Then they will take it in the back and cook it for you so that you don't have to worry about cross contamination with the foods on the front grill. I don't know for sure if it's Celiac friendly or not, but they take food allergies or special diets very seriously there, so I would ask.
Very helpful and friendly. They have an allergy zone for allergies and food is cooked separately. We let the manager Matt know of the allergy when we came in. They let us pick out the meats, sauces and spices we wanted first and then got everything fresh from the back to avoid cross contamination. Rice noodles were cooked well. Create your own gf Mongolian dish! Gf beers and drinks too.
There were no problems with gluten being in the food we had a quick great meal. They cooked the gluten free meal in the back.
Food was ok. Most of the "menu" is naturally GF, just ask which sauces are. What I did not like was that they had to take your food into the back to cook on separate grill.
