    A little hidden but so worth the hunt! The food was very good and the staff was friendly and asked if I had celiacs. The menu was clearly marked with what items were gluten free. They even provided a bottle of gluten free soy sauce.

    Authentic dim sum but there are really only a few items that I feel confident are gluten free- only the rice rolls are truly safe (and you have to be very clear that they cannot put soy sauce on them). All other items marked gluten free are fried in the same fryer as non-GF food. Their rice rolls are delicious and filling though and they have GF soy sauce.

    The menu looked fun but after seeing the reviews I figured it was celiac safe. Once we asked the server they said nothing was safe to order and they didn't recommend eating anywhere in the area if you have a gluten sensitivity.

    Definitely knowledgable about celiac vs gluten allergy. Just because it says no gluten doesn't mean it is gf off the menu, it means they can modify it so it is gf (ie leave off the sauce and give you a bottle of gf soy sauce).

    It was very exciting to see a gluten free menu here, however it is unique and different but my taste buds weren't satisfied. And the almond cookie says gluten free on the menu so I ordered one and then the waiter came to our table after eating half the cookie and said oh sorry that's not gluten free, even though the menu says gf. I appreciate his honesty however I had already eaten half the cookie.

    Gluten free soy sauce and menu labeling which items are gluten free. They use rice noodles for most of the dishes, so it seemed like there was a lot to order. The waitress understood what gluten was, so I wasn't scared to eat anything. Definitely a great option in Chinatown when gfree eating can be tricky.

    Really good dishes dedicated soya sauce, you need to take care in understanding what dish will arrive on the table if you eat with nonGf people. But really good !

    While a number of items on their menu are marked gluten free, only 5 items are truly gluten free. Those 5 things are all based on the same concept...plain wide rice noodles with a bit of shrimp or vegetables. Even when desperate for Chinese, the food was bland and gross. Be careful at this place!

    Great Dim Sum with lots of GF options. The rice rolls are particularly delicious.
