Great that there are tasty choices but I think they could do better. I would expect that it would be so easy to have many more options than they offer. But the Vietnamese salad rolls are awesome!
Pei Wei is a fusion restaurant that is owned by PF Changs. Gluten free menu shown online is more extensive than what the staff will show you at the restaurant. My advice is to look at the online menu to see what items can be made GF. The staff's knowledge of GF is not as good as PF Changs.
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.
If you're looking for a quick place to get gluten free chinese, this place usually does the trick. Not a whole lot of options, but the price is right and it cures the craving. Plus their soda machines are just FUN!
Great GF options and friendly staff
The few GF options are good but a bit pricey. But I feel safe eating here. Met an chef that worked at a Pei Wei & he was trained regarding cross contamination. Lots of restaurants don't even know what that word is so the cook/chef reassured me they are aware & he was impressed in the efforts we make regarding safe eating.
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!
Really good food but the staff is USELESS. They were out of white rice and brought me a plate with noodles that the guy said the manager said was totally gluten free. While looking it up on my phone the hostess runs over and takes them saying they're definitely not gluten free. I've eaten here twice and never been glutened but you have to be all over them if you want to walk out ok. Expect to spend half your calories dealing with the staff. That said I'll be eating here again, food's great.
I'm severe celiac. I've had the gf spicey crispy shrimp with extra shrimp and sometimes I add peanuts. like always, I let cashier know that I am not just choosing to stay away from gluten but severely allergic and let the kitchen staff know..and I have never had any issues. when I do go to places I take advantage of the opportunity to educate staff about being celiac. too many times I have heard people comment that they knew they gabe something witj gluten contamination to people and they comment "see, they had no reaction" Seems the general public ecpect something so quick as a peanut allergy for them to acknowledge if someone is truly allergic. little do they know how sick we can be for DAYS! Just because our reaction happens throughout digestion and not anaphylaxis. This place has been great to me!
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.
My food was contaminated and the selections suck. If you don't like sweet or spicy you're out of luck.
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 have never had a problem at this Pei Wei location.
We have eaten here for at least six years, sometimes once a week, and I have only gotten contaminated once. James is knowledgable, as are all the managers. 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.
They have great choices on the menu. I love the new gluten free rolls!
My son is celiac and very sensitive. We eat here all the time and he has never reacted. The people that work there are really friendly and don't act like you are crazy when you ask them 14 times if it is gluten free.
Great food, horrible service.
Very limited menu for GF and not flavorful at all. I used to love their regular menu items, but unfortunately their GF food is just not great. Also, thy will only give you 1 GF soy sauce packet at a time and you have to request it. Apparently that is their policy due to cost of gf soy sauce. However, it is nice that they have options for GF so friends and family can enjoy the good stuff.
Great food, I just wish they offered as many gluten free options as their "older sister" PF Chang's. I always feel a little disappointed that I am limited to so few options.
Not a lot of options but yummy food and Tamari available. I prefer PF Chsngs because they have more options. (PF parent Co of Pei Wei.)
My family loves going to Pei Wei. Their GF options are tasty and I've never felt sick after eating there. Definitely one of my favorites!
do a good job with GF. eatten there many times with out cross contamination. gf soy sauce available.
awesome. really quick service, great flavor. and gf soy sauce! wont complain ill eat there again.
LOVED IT!!! NO GLUTEN REACTION!! My husband and I are both extremely sensitive to cross-contamination, like a couple of crumbs from an accidental crouton causing a severe reaction kind of sensitive. Last night, we experienced Pei Wei in Lubbock, TX for the first time, and it was amazing. The food was very, very fresh, there were several g-free selections, and the staff was very knowledgeable about Celiac. I highly recommend this location to anyone who is gluten intolerant or Celiac.
Very limited GF menu; a bit pricey. Food is OK; a solid B. May try again. It's so easy to do GF Asian that they really should do more than dip their toe in the water.
Eat there all the time and love it. I never get contaminated.
The last 3 times we've gone in, we have found noodles (not gf) in with the rice when my wife has ordered gf. She's very allergic. We won't give Pei Wei a 4th chance.
Love the Vietnamese spring rolls which I order without peanuts, simply because I don't like them. The last time I went in for carry out, the young woman taking my order told me they were made in the morning and couldn't be made special. There were 5 people waiting behind me and it was dinner time so I didn't ask for the manager. I will next time.
Decent GF options....not as many options as PF Changs though.
When I went into the Woodland Crossing Dr restaurant I was told to "Have a salad" I was not offered a separate gluten free menu nor I was made to feel welcomed. Will not go back.
I came here alil scared. . due to fact I was feeling weak all day and didn't feel like having a reaction. . I ordered the pei wei spicy.. with shrimp. I admit the portion size was a bit much but once I started eating it was like I couldnt stop!!!! best asian place to dine if ur gluten intolerant. . the staff was very friendly!!! and the menu was very clear on what u can and cant eat.. a bouns was when the waiter came by and give us a free sample of their crab wontons , of course I couldn't try it but my boy friend was pleasantly surprised at how delicious it was.. he gluten friendly.
Pei Wei basically has two gluten free entrees, the Spicy Chicken and Sweet and Sour Chicken. Both are very good. However the choice is really limited. They do offer gluten free soy sauce. However, I do wish that they had more to offer. Before going gluten free we really enjoyed eating here. It seems like they could make more of their menu available in gluten free options.
I love the GF sweet & sour chicken!
Rice was brittle and dry, asked for new batch, replacement was same. Plate not designated as GF, but waiter mentioned that it was as he set it down. Did not feel bad after eating, so cross contamination was non-existent or low. Eating here is fine, but not preferred if only because of the low quality of the food at this location.
They have a gluten free menu with several options and what I order is the sweet and sour shrimp with sauce on the side. They also have if asked, GF soy sauce. I go there regularly and I am extremely Gluten sensitive and I don't react there. Recommend it!
About 5 things on separate menu. Tastes great!
3.5 stars - this is fast food and tastes like it. They do offer a gf menu but it is limited, so the desire to return is just as limited. Service at this location is good. Other locations place a sticker on the plate that says GF so you feel like it has been treated as such. This location does not so you are left wondering if it is a truly gf plate.
Very limited GF menu. But they took care with the food. Celiac friendly.
The staff is trained in celiac. Great experience!
Several gf choices
My son is 11. He was sooooo excited to have oriental food again. as some of the other reviews said...GF has different colored plates. While there's not a huge selection, it's really good. He had no reaction from exposure. We will be eating there goo
You order their GF chicken. And they didn't cook it in a different area. Didn't use new pans or silverware. Used the non gluten free breaded chicken. Was sick for days after this one.
Service is a little slow but the food is awesome. Love the spicy chicken salad! Eaten here many times and have had zero gluten issues!
I love eating here! Never gotten sick! I would like a little more options, but I'm honestly just happy to eat some Asian food!!! Num num!
I get the GF spicy chicken EVERY time w/ brown rice, two servings worth of food, would never know it's GF
Love the Vietnamese rolls and the Pei Wei spicy chicken.
GF daughter loves Pei Wei. Never had a problem ordering GF.
Limited GF menu. But what there is , is very tasty!! Had no problems after.
Gluten free menu and prepared in a dedicated pan. The food tastes great however it would be great if there was more of a selection. They also have gluten free soy sauce.
Ordered Gluten Free sweet & sour & I got glutenized. I was sick for days. Something was contaminated.
Food is always excellent and the staff is always nice. I love that they keep my orders in the computer so the next time I call, they can remind me what I like :) I will definitely eat here again.
Always been a safe option. Hopefully they expand their menu
We eat here a lot. They are very careful, just make sure you're paying attention and double checking them. I ordered the exact same as a gluten customer and they swapped our food out. Terrible night of sickness. Only happened once, I make sure they are careful now. They've done fantastic since then.
Contamination (almost) guaranteed.
An ok fast food Chinese place
Limited choices, but good food never had a problem
Served me sweet and sour tofu after I asked the staff if it could be made gluten free. On my next visit requested the same and this time the chef said the tofu on its own is NOT gluten free.
They only have two options, but when you are hungry at the airport it's better than anything. They cooked it in a clean wok and were understanding of my gluten allergy.
Very limited gf menu but the food is consistently tasty and I never have a reaction after eating here. If we don't have time for PF Changs, we go here. I love their drink machine too.
This is my run-to for carry outs and fast meals. Love Pei Wei.
one of my favorite restaurants. love the sweet and sour chicken.
very accomodating. food is good for a chain, service is fast.
I change up Changs's spicy chicken by ordering half chicken, half shrimp...order sauce on the side, stir in 1 tsp hot mustard and two packets of g/f soy sauce into the heated sauce, then spoon over dish as needed. I have asked for different veggies as well, but enjoy pea pods the best in this dish. : )
Many GF items to chose from.
Not the biggest gf menu but a good go to when u want to eat out. They don't cook with gf soy so when I order gf it won't be a soy dish. The pei Wei spicy is way too sweet my taste. I wish they used gf soy like pf changs The cabbage salad is good get dressing on side they put much on it
Only 6 choices on the Gluten Free Menu
Always good... Consistent and I never have problems getting sick... They do gluten free well.... Good chicken and shrimp options just no beef... I eat their frequently
I have eaten here several times w no issues until 2 nights ago. The food is always good but thus time I paid dearly in symptoms all the next day. I will be hesitant to go back. Too bad......
Safe place for celiac and GI people. However, the food tastes way too sweet.
Small GF menu, but the spicy chicken is great!
You can ask for sweet and sour non-breaded chicken over rice noodles.
It's great to be able to have sweet & sir chicken or shrimp. They use potato starch to bread chicken. So good.
Great variety for Asian food and excellent gluten free menu!
They have one dish (spicy chicken) that can be made gluten free.
Love Pei Wei. They have a good selection of gluten-free Asian food. I always get their spicy chicken and some Vietnamese chicken salad rolls. Make sure to specify gluten-free in you order though. Never had a bad experience here.
We love Pei Wei. Their food is the second Chinese option we ate after going gluten-free (the first was PF Chang's, their parent company!). Their selections, for us at least, and right one. I love sweet & sour, and that's what I get. My husband loves Seschwaun, and so he gets their spicy chicken. Here's where they lose two stars - consistency and service. I am CONSTANTLY triple-checking to make sure my husband's food is actually gluten-free, since his reactions are WAY worse than mine. Multiple times on phone-in orders I've received the wrong order completely, non-gf order, and had the manager come chase me down to tell me the order was wrong. Also, you ALWAYS get the bag that contains fortune cookies and regular soy sauce thrown on top of the bag. Eating in, we've only ONCE had a problem. There's a different plate (it's black) from "regular" customers (theirs are red), so that helps. We usually get eyerolls when we order gf, and the cashiers are total arse-holes. The servers are 50/50 though. The rice is almost always undercooked. My husband's spicy chicken is sometimes very bland, and sometimes so hot he asks for extra rice. You have to ask for gf soy sauce, because they never offer it. All that being said and done, I really like their food and it's totally worth it as long as you're a little more watchful.
Love this place. Once the mgr informed me that they may have accidentally cross contaminated my food so they were going to remake it just in case. Love the honesty!
Awesome experience every time!!
I love Pei Wei! Great gluten free menu and the staff is always helpful and quick.
Very great restaurant! Food was very fresh and it was a great experience! Servers were very friendly and knowledgable about gluten free.
me and my wife are Always looking for a great restaurant to eat at, plus gluten free is a must for us. the food was not bad here, but we expected a better taste blend.. I am a big sesame chicken fan but everyone makes their different, so places should offer samples before you eat.. we gave it 3 stars because the floors were dirty clearly and the clean plates on the table had food particles in them. plus only 2 big items thats gluten free except for different salad.
Let them know - PeiWei Spicy is excellent no issues at all
Not my favorite Chinese place of all time, but the separate GF menu is very helpful. It will always work when I am in need of some Chinese food.
One of our favorite places for healthy, quick, and affordable gf food. Ask for their gf menu.
Good food, but choices are too llimited.
Good call on the sweet-and-sour chicken!
Very good! Had the sweet and sour chicken with rice noodles which tasted so fresh and delicious! Would go there again, though it is a slight bit pricey.
Had the gluten free sweet and sour chicken. It was great! I liked that they had a little gluten free menu to look at.
Great gluten free food and menu selections.
Love the gluten free sweet & sour chicken! Just wish they had a few more gf options.
Good food and their careful.
Very good food, restaurant could have been cleaner, only reason for 4 star. Great write up of GF order though.
I find the GF menu very limited, and strictly speaking to my experiences at this location, every time I've ordered I've had a reaction. If you're choosing to eat GF then maybe not a problem, but if you have to, there are plenty of other better spots.
Pretty good food. Not a whole lot of options but I have eaten here many times and never had a problem. I always get the Pei-Wei spicy.
Small menu for entrees and had problems after
great place!... only problem i had is when i tried telling the cook i was celiac and couldn't have any cross contamination she rolled her eyes, muttered something and just walked away... i was almost afraid to eat! but the food was good and i didn't have any problems with being sick afterwards.
The food is great. You order then sit down and they bring you your food. It is quick and delicious. I have been there more than 5 times and never had a reaction. I love their selection as well.
Love you Pei Wei! You fill my bill for tasty Chinese food. Like the little sister of PF Chang, you sport some of the same charm, minus a few frills, and also a few sheckels cheaper. Pei Wei spicy, half chicken- half shrimp....you know what I like! Thanks Pei Wei, you never disappoint.
This review is base on their sweet and sour chicken on their gulten free menu. we order and the cook knew it was supposed to be gulten free as well they handled my son dish carefully . Yet it made my son sick. The chicken can be crispy or grill . He chose crispy they said they make it crispy in rice flour. so we though it would be okay. still not sure what made him sick in the ingredients.
Pei Wei in the Gilbert Arizona area was extremely disappointing. They no longer offer a gluten-free menu. They had only two gluten-free items on the regular menu. They had some salads that were recommended as gluten-free. They served my gluten-free chicken wraps with butter lettuce along with a side of dipping sauce and it was clearly not gluten-free as I have been sick all day. My family only went to this location in order to accommodate my gluten-free needs. I recommend that you AVOID Pei Wei. Love, HypFoods!
Staff was very helpful and the food was great.
Didn't like at all!!
got to try the spicy chicken it fabulous
I have tried this location several times and the servers rarely get the order right. Last time I ordered a GF dish and it tasted different than usual. I got really sick afterwards. (Gluten wise not food poisoning wise.) Other Pei Wei restaurants I have not had problems with, just this one.
First time to try Pei Wei and first time to dine out since being diagnosed. Take out staff at the restaurant was fabulous - he assured me every thing was carefully prepared and the food would be delicious - he was right.
The gluten free selection is very limited. We had the sweet and sour pork and Vietnamese salad rolls and both were delicious. The only other entree options were salads.
Good GF food with moderate range of choices on menu. My kids like the sweet and sour chicken without the ginger. 5 star for adults, 4 star for kids because of the GF food options and slightly small portion sizes (takes 2 meals for me, 2 and 6 year old)
Love this location for fresh, delicious food, great service, hip atmosphere, and secure g-free eating. Eat there about 2x a month, g-free. The g-free spicy chicken dish (i order it with extra vegetables) is my favorite, and a very generous portion. The management is great, and are very careful with the gluten issue. It's nice to feel normal and relaxed going to eat at restaurants, and that is how I feel at Pei Wei. A meal and a soft drink with tax is about $10-11, and I think it's worth it!
Always easy to order here and handled well. Menu could be expanded, or updated a bit more often, but always a good standby option.
Not very many options, and the options they do have are not very tasty. The staff seemed irritated that I would even bother asking for a gluten free menu.
Very delicious ! Staff was knowledgable. My first time at this location an enjoyed the spicy pei Wei chicken.
Pei Wei has a special station to make all the gf food & special gf plates. One of my favorite take out places. I like the online ordering for take out so you can see that the gluten free was added to the order.
Have eaten there several times with my daughter (who is super sensitive celiac) and we both were fine. Fast casual type restaurant where you order at the counter and they bring the food to you. Wish they had a larger selection and GF lettuce wraps like PF Changs.
very small gf menu maybe 6 items of chicken/shrimp, rolls, salad, edamame... love the chicken spring rolls and their spicy chicken
good food service is decent
Great food high on calories though.the staff seem to be trained well.
Middle of the road but decent food. GF menu has 6 items. I had spicy Pei Wei salad and my son had spicy Pei Wei chicken. When I said the chicken looked battered, I was told they use potato starch. It had a nice texture. Mildly spicy. I would do it again even with limited choices.
It doesn't get much easier than this! Separate gf menu and solid flavors.
they could possibly deserve a 5 star rating, however they have a very limited menu. give me a third entree possibility and they get that the fifth star. or make the lettuce wraps gluten free like PF Changs and it would be 6 stars easy. yum!
My daughter has never has a problem with their gluten- free selections. A favorite of the whole family.
Only a Very limited choice of GF items.
I like Pei Wei - it's fast and cheap and satisfies my craving for Asian food. They're very accommodating with the gluten-free diet. They even make sure the edamame is cooked in a broth w/o gluten. I get the sweet and sour chicken every time. I believe they cook is separate woks too! I've always been treated so well there. They even have stickers to note that it's GF. However, they have a very limited gluten-free menu, so that's why I can't give them 5 stars! Go to PF Chang's (their big brother) for more variety.
I was not pleased with the options. I ordered the sweet and sour chicken and the spring rolls. I didn't enjoy either option and just from that experience I don't plan on going back to try anything. The only reason I ordered what I did was because I read about it in a review and had been looking for decent chinese type food.
I gave this a four star due to the tastiness of their food. They're GF menu is very small, like 4 items, but I haven't gotten sick. They're GF options are carefully planned, as they go so far as to cook the veggies in water instead of veggie broth because the broth contains some barley. This is a sister restaurant to PF Chang's, so they have a decent amount of training, although, not as much as PF Chang's does.
Have dined here numerous times since I was diagnosed 2 years ago and never had an issues!
the gluten free shrimp tastes like shrimp it is amazing
Excellent gluten free & soy free menu items!!
I only trust the chicken salad rolls which are delicious. I have had the sweet and sour dish and have gotten sick. Not sure if it was the chicken or the rice.
Pei Wei does the best job of being gluten free! They use a separate wok and do a good job keeping the food separate. They use individual packets of gf soy sauce so you know you're getting the right kind. The best thing is the price!! We always get a take out box and have leftovers.
Good spring rolls but sweet and sour was lacking
I ate there last month and got so SICK, the front end people kept discouraging me about using the GF soy sauce; saying it was too salty...well I have no other choice and I use it at home, so it works for me!! The options are so slim, not even 1 noodle choice, and with tbe contamination problem; I won't be back!! :(
Love the Vietnamese chicken salad rolls!!!!
Although the options are limited, I have never gotten sick at pei Wei. I also always ask for gluten free soy sauce packets, which I then carry in my purse. I always clarify when I order what cross contamination is.
I love the sweet and sour chicken here and love that they also have gf soy sauce. I have yet to get sick with that meal, but haven't ventured to any of their other options.
The worst place to go it is not gluten free at all its HORRIBLE
Nice menu, lots to choose from. No "special attention" needed- they understand what you need, why you need it and the food is fast & terrific!
Ask for gluten-free menu when you arrive. Look it over in line and order at register. They will give you a table number to put on table, so they know where to deliver your food. Food was excellent. They have sauce subsitutions so your meal has all the taste it should. I was very pleased with such good tasting, large portions, and REASONABLY priced. Win-win.
good food. We eat here frequently and I haven't been dosed which says a lot.
I love pei wei but at this location I ordered a gluten free dish and found noodles mixed in with my rice.
It is GF friendly but unfortunately has a very very very limited selection. Maybe 2 choices for meals.
I reluctantly visited here on vacation but was so thankful I did. The staff was so helpful and had the chef prepare my sweet and sour chicken that I have not eaten in almost 5 years, with potato starch. I enjoyed it and did not get sick at all.. highly recommend this place.
GF menu a little limited, but still a variety. Employees were very aware of GF needs.
I come here about twice a week. Always fantastic food & service! The employees really know about the gluten free menu .
awesome gluten free sweet and sour chicken!!
Everything on the GF menu is fantastic! i love this place! I thought I'd never have sweet & sour chicken again!
It was such a treat to have a gluten free menu, delicious food, friendly service ... And all at a good price! I will definately return.
The Pei Wei spicy chicken is amazing!!
Good, but could use a few more options for gluten free.
very GF conscious! only negative is the GF items aren't marked on the menu.
they totally understand. CEO of Pei Wei (PF Chang) has celiac
I give PeiWei credit for having a "gluten free" dish, but it made me sick. I find it hard to trust chains.
I would have given it 5 stars if they had more than one GF dish.
Limited gluten free menu. They have rice noodles but boil them in the same water as regular noodles :(.
sweet & sour chicken is amazing
I had the spiced chicken salad. Excellent!
Gluten free sweet and sour shrimp is the best. I love this place. They even do the fried rice with gf soy sauce. Go eat there!
consistent. narrow set of selections. tasty. sweet and sour available.
Some more options would be nice, but I'm in love with the Vietnamese Chicken Rolls.
Limited selection; very few options.
Pretty good food--I wish the selection was slightly larger. PF Chang's has spoiled me.
Disappointed in selection for gluten free offerings.
They do have Gf soy sauce
short on g/f menue options but what is available is delicious. So greatful to habe a chinese food option. check this place out; good food, reasonable prices.
GF menu is very limited but they are very willing to make something GF if possible.
Great flavor. Consistent product.
good fast food. they do a good job of preparing gf food never gotten sick from them. good prices as well
