    Was very excited to try this restaurant because of the great reviews and thorough menu/info on the restaurant's website, however I don't think I will be returning. As always, i said we are gluten free, celiac, allergy, many times to make sure the message got across. Unfortunately there must've been a miscommunication, due most probably to the language barrier. The food was delicious and made me feel as though I wasn't eating gluten free, and now I'm pretty sure I wasn't. No special plates were used (which they said on their website would be), and I should have been more cautious when each time I asked about gluten free throughout the meal, I was brushed off and weakly assured. But now, I am quite sick, with symptoms that I know occur only when I have been glutened. If you are going to try this restaurant, please be careful and try to get more confirmation somehow on the gluten free status of the food, but I would not recommend this restaurant to any celiacs based on my experience. 2 stars because the food tasted good, but I am sick.

    The General Tso's chicken & Crispy Beef were gluten free and delicious!! Pretty jazzed to add this to our list of safe bets!

    Good for celiacs. Average quality Chinese and decent sushi. Popular but maybe because there aren't many Chinese places in town. Big GF menu.

    This was the first time in 7 years I was able to eat gf Chinese food in a real restaurant! And actual shrimp tempura in a sushi roll! The food was fantastic, there was no shortage of choices, and the staff was diligent and very careful. I went back twice to try as many different things as I could while I was on vacation for a long weekend.

    so many options here! it would be great if they used cane sugar instead of corn syrup (?) in the sweet dishes. They offer tamari, sauces, fried foods and great noodle/rice dishes. Eating here made my son giggle as he ate. fyi- they made all our dishes dairyfree too. Will go back whenever we're in the area.

    Greenleaves is so good that we often head up to York from right outside of Boston and it's worth the trip every time. Huge GF selection (I highly reccomend the coconut shrimp), friendly and knowledgeable staff and ownership. Why are you still reading? Go already, it's the Chinese food that us celiacs have been missing!!

    It was a cute restaurant, the decor was very nice, the staff was super friendly, and they didn't keep us waiting long. The menu is certified gluten free which I was ecstatic about! It took away the worry of cross contamination so I was able to sit back and not wonder how I'll feel later. And the menu is a full two pages! They have everything, and the best part is it's all gluten free! I can't wait to go back!

    Sooooo good! We've been three times in 10 days while on vacation. Loved everything, Especially the coconut chicken. My only odd observation is that despite ordering all GF they still deliver fortune cookies to the table and included regular soy sauce with takeout (they brought me GF sauce upon request).

    I had a safe GF meal. It was obvious they were careful. The food was only okay as boneless and beef teriyaki were very fatty. Fried rice is made white without soy sauce.

    Awesome restaurant with great service. They use water chestnut flour, which is not actually a nut at all, to bread their dishes. Food was excellent especially since I have allergies to both wheat and nuts. Great variety of gluten free items that you can't usually get.

    I've eaten here a number of times, and never had a reaction. Especially love their beef and chicken teriyaki. Takeout service is really fast, too!

    This is the best gluten free Chinese restaurant I've been to. While I was in the area I went three times. I was able to have fried and battered GF offerings like general tsaos which I haven't seen this at any other Chinese places with a GF menu. I never got sick and I appreciated how quick their service was.

    Awesome restaurant. The gluten free menu is separate, so make sure you ask. The soup is the best. The beef was a bit tough, but there was great flavor.

    Has options you can't find at most Chinese restaurants. You can even get General Tso's chicken!!!! Update: Their GF fried rice is amazing! My fiancé who isn't GF even says it is the best he has had. I have now tried quite a few dishes that you can't normally get GF because they are fried and they all have been awesome. They use chestnut flour instead of wheat flour.
