    Good food and they're very accommodating with cleaning the grill and using clean spatulas. Most of the really good sauces have gluten in them, but the Not So Sweet and Sour was really good.

    Make your own stir fry! And customize your sauce! The grill guys scrub down the grill and use specified spatulas for your food. They are very nice about it. Tons of options to make a great meal. You won't leave hungry!

    You receive a different color bowl that identifies you as an allergy. They also notify the griller to clean an area of the grill for you. They use different spatulas and they're very careful about cross-contamination.

    I am shocked that anyone finds this place safe to eat when they are gluten free! We went in so hopeful and our hopes were raised even further when they mentioned the care they go to in making sure it was gf. The special bowls, the dividers, scrubbing down the grill etc. But then the server mentioned no cross contamination of shell fish. That was the first red flag. Shell fish are not a worry for people who are gluten free. Perhaps he just mentioned it because of shell fish allergies not meaning to imply that it had anything to do with gf. They were careful to bring us a soy sauce that was gf, but then told us it was safe to eat their sauces; most contain regular soy sauce. What the server and manager told us are different than what it says on their allergy guide that can be found on line. They said their potstickers were gf; they clearly have wheat! Their allergy guide claims that all wheat on their menu has been processed to meet FDA guidelines. WHAT?! Anyone, who knows anything about gluten and gluten free knows that is IMPOSSIBLE! Their menu is laden with gluten and is NOT safe for people with celiac and gluten intolerance. When we talked to the server and manager about this they just shrugged and said that's how they were trained and no one has ever gotten sick there. There are no FDA guidelines for restaurants; only processed foods marked gf. We chose not to eat here; we want our daughter to have a good first week at college and not be dealing with being glutened. I'm only giving one star because it has to have at least one!

    the restaurant does its darnedest to accommodate celiac patients. you do have to tell your server that you have celiac! also the fish is next to the nongluten free noodles... you can ask the line attendant for safe fish or any product. all the sauces are safe. you can also watch the cook scrub the cook surface to bare metal, set up barriers and use new spatulas just for you. I caught 1 cook messing up, and he apologized and we started over. I eat they at least 3 times a month!

    I am a very sensitive celiac and have not had a problem here anybof the 5+ times we have eaten here. Once you make waitress aware of gluten . you will receive a yellow bowl to alert staff of allergy. Note: they have one tepan grill surface, but they do clean it and partiton it off when they cook gf food.

    HuHot has quite a few gluten free options. My waiter offered to make my lunch in the back and pull all of the toppings from the original container to ensure there was no cross-contamination. All meats except for crab are gluten free and all sauces are gluten free. HuHot is an all you can eat Mongolian buffet. I have Celiac Disease and loved HuHot.

    They thoroughly clean the grill and ask if you are satisfied with it before they cook your food on it. You also get a colored bowl to specify you have an "special diet" so the cooks know. They never treat you like you are inconveniencing them.

    When I notified the cooks that I'm gluten free, they cleaned the grill with a pumice, kept my food separate and had dedicated utensils just for my order. I really appreciated the steps they took to avoid cross-contamination. They don't have Tamari sauce, just regular soy sauce, so next time I'll bring my own.

    I agree with the other review. It's phenomenal! Stay away from the crab and meatballs and noodles. Manager will bring out the rice noodles that are gluten free. Otherwise, all is gluten free including sauces. They clean the grill extra and use specific spatulas while cooking and serving. I really appreciate this place and their attentiveness!

    Love HuHot! This is one of the few places I feel confident eating at. All of the sauces are GF and they happily grab fresh rice noodles from the kitchen when asked. They make sure the grill is clean and use spatulas to protect your food from splatter. The more sauce you add the better it is. I always grab two bowls the first time and usually only go through once, but the cooks are always great about making sure the grill is safe for people with allergies.

    Food is great, and the experience is neat too. The men on the grill clean, wipe down, and use clean utensils for allergies. So they are really trying! HOWEVER, the setup of the bar, where you choose the uncooked food and sauces, has the GF foods and the non-GF foods right next to each other... meaning easy cross-contamination. They are trying, so maybe a simple letter to them asking to rearrange the foods would help:)

    They were very good when I went a couple of days ago. They clean the grill on request of allergy. I'm very sensitive so I need absolutely no cross contamination and they were very accommodating. They grab food directly from the fresh containers to ensure no cc. I didn't get sick!! :) Definitely going back since I'm getting limited on where I can go and am happy they are doing such a great job!

    They've recently redone all their sauces to be gluten free so the only things you need to watch for on the buffet line are the noodles and some of the meats. They did a great job scouring the grill when we told them we had a gluten allergy, marked the spots, scrubbed with extra care, even divided off our section with giant metal bars to prevent any splashing. Ordering from the menu would be trickier but the bar itself was great. You can skip the noodles entirely and just use the rice they bring to the table to avoid any noodle contamination. Great job and really appreciated all the effort they put in!

    my understanding is the owners wife has celiac s, and this is a gluten aware place. ask the staff. they will provide you nutritional guide and it's easy to not choose the few and obvious gluten containing ingredients. tell the cook you are gluten free, they will clean the grill and give your food space. they have a gluten free sit sauce you can use. they are helpful. cannot guarantee 100% no cross contamination, like all places.

    Menu and separate allergen list. Confusing to cross reference. Then. you have to carry the big allergen list with you as you select your ingredients. Those should be labeled.Then you tell the cooks you need your order Gluten Free. They scrape and scrub a section of the grill, and then partition it off and cook your ingredients. Not good enough for celiacs, they should have a separate grill or a section they can put on top that is dedicated to gluten free only.Wait staff friendly and curteous, and appear to be trained by corporate, but their procedures are not adequate for celiacs or the very sensitive. I will know in less than an hour, but until they improve their procedures, they are not quite there yet.

    After going here several times, I feel that I have it down. The first time I went there, I got sick- very sick. The rice noodles are right next to the regular noodles and cross contamination is VERY high. After speaking to a manager, he was kind enough to tell me that they have no problem getting noodles from the back at request. Now, I ask my server to get my noodles from the back and have not had issues. Another poster here said that all the sauces are GF which is not true. They only have several that are gluten free, so be sure to get the allergen paper from your waiter so you know ahead of time what you can eat. Now that I have sorted that all out, I do not get sick. The chance for contamination is high, but cutting those major things out has helped me avoid the stomach ache.
