Very disappointed, the woman taking orders thrust a tiny gluten free menu at me. I was surprised the lettuce cups were not available gluten free based on what was in them. I then asked if they had gluten free soy sauce. She looked at me as though I had two heads and said "we have gluten free sweet & sour sauce". Ugh (we left and went next door)
I haven't had anything here I didn't like! And it offers different food from its sister chain, PF Changs.
Really good GF menu. My daughter had the sweet and sour chicken and she loved it.
Great GF options! Lettuce wraps, just about any meat in a noodle or rice dish. Also have GF soy sauce on request. They have GF sauces as well. My non-celiac spouse can't taste the difference between the GF plate and the gluten plate. One of my top 5 GF places. Owned by PF Changs, but cheaper and faster. Most dishes with meat are $6.50-$9.00. 2 meals, 1 appetizer, 2 drinks would be $25 give or take. Very good value. They have normal sized dishes (plenty for one person), or a smaller portion with half the meat.
I always order the PW spicy salad GF with sauce and dressing on the side. They use potato starch on the chicken.
Disappointed that I must have received a gluten version after ordering GF. Not a wide menu.
Everything was fresh and delicious!!! The Chicken Salad was really tasty and we loved the lime vinaigrette! The sweet/sour chicken was so much better than what we used to eat (pre Celiac) since it wasn't breaded. Shrimp items good too. Previous review was not accurate - there are 6 entrees and many salads on GF menu.
I wish they had more to choose from. What they have is okay though.
I was there with some friends for take out that were not GF. We all ordered our food and I ordered my gluten free of course. They didn't label any of the plates, and I had never eaten there. I took the food back to the people and asked them to label the food for us. They incorrectly labeled the dishes, and I was up all night with vomiting and it took me a few days to recover. They were not real careful. I will not go back.
I have eaten here several times and have never been sick. They even have gluten free soy sauce! The gluten free menu is much smaller than I would have liked but it is all so very good :) I'm eating here aging tonight!! Try their sweet n sour chicken - you won't be disappointed :)
Tasty gluten free options ( not too many to choose from but sufficient ). Also MSG free. Staff careful and polite!
We have eaten here for at least six years, sometimes once a week, and I have only gotten contaminated once. James is knowledgable, as is Audry ( manager). Very accommodating to GF. Ask for double coated meat if you want it crispier. Love the Pei Wei spicy chicken salad, mild! Six options on the GF menu. If very sensitive, ask for them to burn the wok twice. 20 or so GF options!
Have a small gluten free menu watched cook and he used all clean pans spoons etc.
Semi-fast food. A few GF options but I have been here a few times and had the sweet and sour chicken each time. It's good, affordable and fast with a clean dining area. Freindly ordering staff
We visit Pei Wei often for a delicious gf meal. The spicy chicken with brown rice or the sweet and sour chicken with brown rice are our favorites. The Vietnamese chicken salad spring rolls are amazing also. We eat here weekly and my husband has never gotten sick.
This place is very good! I have only ate there 2 times but they are really good for gluten free people and celiac.
They advertise a large gluten free menu but in reality their "gluten free menu" is 5 small items that barely constitutes a meal. They do not make special gluten free items, instead they merely point out the items that were already gluten free to begin with. When I asked a question about an item I received an ear full of sass from the cashier about my request. They have gluten free soy sauce on available to appease those suffering with this good allergy but they will not cook with it. I am extremely disappointed in my Pei Wei experience and will not be coming back any time soon.
The food is really good but it's hit or miss if I get sick there. If you have Celiac go to PF Chang's instead. They are very careful.
Celiacs beware! Although the gluten free options are delicious, I asked how they prepare their gluten free items and was told they do not have separate cookware for gluten free meals. They wash the pot and change gloves. If you're celiac that may not be the best option as there is cross contamination but if you're just gluten sensitive it might be ok. Unfortunately I'll have to scratch this one of my list :(
I had Pei Wei for the first time 2 years ago. The food tasted good. But I was unable to make it through the whole meal with out getting sick. I make sure every where I go that I express how it is an allergy not just a diet choice just so there is no misunderstanding. Today I went back to Pei Wei and had the exact same experience! I was sick almost immediately. I am an avid hand washer and even used chop sticks that were packaged just in case. I still managed to get extremely sick. I hope they are able to figure out exactly what could be contaminating the food. Because it is rare to find good gluten free Asian food.
I've eaten here several times and never had a problem. Menu is limited but I can enjoy it on occasion.
I eat here a lot, they are usually pretty good. However, one time I found a noodle in my rice. I took it back and got a new meal
It is very tasty. The food is not pf changs comparable but my sister and I enjoy coming here when we want a faster Chinese meal. I definitely recommend!
One of my favorite restaurants: -Many GF options that taste like the original version -several Celiac employees -GF extras like soy sauce packets at no extra charge I usually get GF sweet & sour chicken with white rice and veggies. It's excellent.
Great choice, I regularly eat here and get the Pei Wei Spicy Shrimp every time. Delicious and haven't gotten sick out of the many times eating here for lunch
Gf menu is very limited but good. I agree there is better gf Chinese out there. But this at least a safe consistent fast option for celiacs.
While they have some vegetarian items on their regular menu, they have absolutely no vegetarian options on their gluten free menu. I asked the woman working the counter if they could sub out the ingredients to make something that was both gf and vegetarian and she said it wasn't possible. The only option was edamame. Lame.
They do have a GF menu however they don't like to actually read the tickets so your chances of getting what you ordered are about 50%. Watch very carefully and never ever leave without checking your bag if you order to go. I went with not celiac friendly simply because they can only get an order right about 50% of the time so you can't really trust them.
I recently went with a large family group and as stated before the gf menu is small, and I had the orange chicken and it was made with some sort of sweetner which wrecks havoc on me and didn't taste well. But no gluten symptoms, staff didn't seem knowledgeable when asked about other items so I didn't risk it. The rest of the family enjoyed and over all not a complete disgust, but I was put a little of by the lack of options
Not a lot of choice but the food quality is great!
There are 6 gluten free items on the menu, one of which is hardly edible. The sweet & sour chicken is just awful -- imagine cooking chicken in vinegar and adding some orange colored gel and you've got it. The vinegar taste ruined the whole plate. I won't be back.
