This is a gluten "friendly" restaurant. They do not care to celiacs and were very clear they cross contaminate. I appreciated the honesty!! There are two items on the menu for a celiac: 1) Edamame, 2) Rice. So if you are hungry, you may want to try somewhere else.
Few options and I got very sick despite being really clear .. If you have to go, stick to the edamame - but be sure they steam it in water b/c sometimes they use chicken broth which is not GF (a line of questions reveled this). I went here for a work function and would not go again.
Stopped in at a time when they were not busy to ask questions. It was rather discouraging and they said they do not have any kitchen procedures to avoid cross contamination & that folks with Celiac probably were not safe. They emphasized that the GF on the menu just means gluten friendly NOT gluten free & they would not guarantee that any item was gluten free. Quite disappointing and misleading. I decided to go elsewhere.
Waiter was super nice, but had to ask if my dipping sauce on the eggplant had soy sauce ( and it did). Hostess gave lots of disclaimers. I would go again and stick to shrimp dumplings (labeled gf and tasty).
waitress very helpful in checking with chef on ingredients. dumplings are made with rice as is batter that eggplant is fried in. no gf soy sauce though.
They say they have a GF menu, but many of the items on it are fried in a cross-contaminated fryer. I had the shrimp chips, the fried calamari (which is pan fried with GF batter), lemon chicken and steamed rice. That's about the extent of the truly GF menu. But the food was good and the staff is knowledgable and very helpful.
