I really enjoy the Roasted Wok Veggie Salad. I add chicken too but need to remind the cashier to add GF chicken. They failed to do so once but fixed it immediately.
Pei Wei does have a dedicated GF menu, I eat there at least once a week with no problems. Love their GF Vietnamese Rolls with the Sweet Chili Sauce, Yum! When in the mood for a little more, I like their GF Sweet n Sour Chicken with white rice, very filling and lots of flavor. They even have GF soy sauce. Check out their website, you'll see they have a GF menu!
while visiting from out of State, I brought family here thinking they could accommodate gluten free needs. Our group offered to leave when the cashier informed me they don't have any options then handed me a card with 2 salads minus any flavor (standard gf fair) and a sweet & sour option as well as a singapore noodle type option. Instead of making everyone else change, I ordered the gf sweet and sour. Yuck. They really should not advertise that they have a gf menu. They do not. The spring rolls are fried in the same oil as everything else so they are not gf. offering lettuce with no options at an asian place is not appealing at all. Save your money and frustration and skip Pei Wei, Orlando.
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 :(
Have a small gluten free menu not sure all cooks are aware of cross contamination.
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.
Very disappointed as well, food was mediocre and pricey, prob will not go back. Not many GF options either
Finding a decent GF place poses a challenge, especially while traveling away from familiar home locations. My wife and I both just ate there and let's just say the food was...... Delish! The wait staff was familiar with our dietary needs as well as the GF options the restaurant offers. There is nothing worse than getting the "deer in the headlight" look when you mention that you don't eat gluten. If we all take the time to post feedback on this site all of us GF's will have an easier time finding good safe places to eat. Wherever our travels take us.
Extremely limited GF menu, but at least it exists. There were literally only 2 or 3 GF entrees, so not a good choice if you're a picky eater. (Which is disappointing when it's SO EASY to make Asian food GF.) I was ready to give them just 1 star, but a few things changed that as I was leaving with my to-go order. First, they had GF soy sauce in packets, which is hard to find and a definite plus. Secondly, their order receipts have a good GF distinction in bright red letters. And my to-go order had a GF sticker on it. So while I was totally disappointed in the GF menu options, it did seem like they had a strong GF procedure in place. Not sure I'll be back, but it isn't altogether a horrible choice.
I've verified that my receipt says GF. The person who brought the order to the table specifically said it's gluten free. Yet the shrimp was battered. I just thought they used corn starch like they do with the chicken. It tasted really good... maybe that should have been a red flag? Well, then it's my fault too. Yesterday and today have not been enjoyable. :(
This celiac truly appreciates the safe dining experiences I have had at Pei Wei in Stuart ,Florida. Limited, but delicious GF offerings, knowledgeable and extremely friendly staff and a place to enjoy a meal that won't kill me. :) Especially yummy Vietnamese chicken salad rolls.... Thank you, Pei Wei!!
last 3 times there I have gotten sick. Someone doesn't take gluten-free seriously. And the last time I had a dead bug in my meal.YUCK!!!! They did give me a refund for my meal.
Good food. Ask for the GF menu. They have a handful of items. I had GF edemame, spicy chicken and spring rolls from the gf menu. All great. Ask for gf soy sauce packets. They are prepared to serve GF and it's not a problem. We fed a family of four for $45. Best gf Chinese food experience I have had.
I got the gf sweet and sour chicken and it was horrible. It tasted like cleaning products. The only reason I gave it two stars was because I didn't get sick. My wife got the dynamite chicken and ended up throwing it away because it was so terrible. I was very disappointed and we definitely will not be eating here again.
Everyone seemed very skeptical of my request to make sure it was cooked in a clean pan. We'll see how I feel....
You have to ask but they have gluten free soy sauce.
I had the Pei Wei spicy chicken - the only entree marked GF. Rice, chicken, carrots, and pea pods. It was good. A bit expensive at $9.40, but it is at the airport. It took about 10 min for them to make. I heard them communicate it was GF, but didn't watch the prep to see what that meant for them. You can see the cooking area if you want to monitor.
Had the spicy chicken. It was crunchy and savory. Delish! I can eat Asian food again!!!
5-6 item gluten free menu. friendly staff and chefs
They have a small gluten free menu, my advice is to ask for the manager to take your order so it is done right. I have gotten very sick before called the restaurant to let them know, a manager called me back and urged me to come back and ask for a manager to take my order. I really enjoy this place, fast and decent food.
Small gluten free menu, but it tastes delicious! I'm just thankful that they were thoughtful. :-)
