    This place is quite tasty. I had a great experience. They were very conscious about gluten and helped me out tremendously !

    They were very knowledgeable--the host took a takeout menu and marked off everything that was naturally GF and which chould be made safe by alteration (they have San-J GF soy sauce, my fave) I had the vegetarian spring rolls, and chicken chili "ramen" with glass noodles, along with a side of lovely fried tofu that I soaked in the super tasty broth. I felt fine both immediately afterwards and several hours after, so they successfully kept me safe. :) Since I still break out in a rash that then bleeds if I get wheat flour based stuff on my hands, I make a decent mine canary, and I'd say that as long as you are clear they will happily show you the options here. (Note: there were also a lot of 'small plates' and sides that are naturally GF and a meal of those would also be awesome. I just super wanted soup) So, a solid four stars, because if they had a km enu pre set up it would have made ot easier on both their on location staff and me :p Dear corporate, just make them a little sheet, ok?

    There's one sauce that's gluten free... I ended up with plain rice, plain broccoli, and plain chicken, a horribly bland meal.

    No gluten free menu. The server sometimes marks those items that are gluten free and then sometimes they tell you that they can make almost anything gluten free. So then you proceed to ask about certain dishes and then they say, oh, not sure, let me check on that, they disappear for a while and come back to say no, or to tell you that they can make it without this and that. There has to be a better way.

    On paper it seems like a great option for gluten free people. In reality, not so much. I went recently and was basically told I could eat rice. Not quite what I'm looking for when dining out. I'd say skip the place and go somewhere else. not worth it.

    There is not an actual gluten free menu. The server circles The gf options on the actual menu. That's all right but i think some options actually do have gluten on it. So it makes you think if they actually know what gluten free means So i ordered a mango chicken something and they Brought me something that tasted like hospital food. No salt on it. Flavorless. It made me feel like a sick person. Not an allergic one They're probably good on their regular menu, but i wouldn't recommend the place for a celiac.

    Nice to have a decent sit down place at Quincy market. The menu is circled by staff to designate gf. There are some things that come with gf noodles instead of wheat. The mango sauce in the mango curry has gluten in it....Thus becoming a very boring dish. The other options are good. The waitstaff will ask if it's gf due to allergy or preference.

    Waiter was very nice about picking out everything on the menu that could be gluten free.. However I ended up with grilled chicken, brown rice and steamed broccoli. Boring.

    Ate here with my vegan daughter. No GF menu but there are some GF entrees. The wait staff was polite not knowledgable. The foods I tried did not make me ill, but I thought they tasted like soap. I ate very little and drank a lot if water, hoping my table companions were enjoying themselves enough to not notice.

    Although staff seemed very attentive in the beginning, I found a regular ramen noodle in my GF ramen! Be careful.

    All orders for the table were handled by the manager to ensure everything was done properly. Gluten free menu, staff was very accommodating. Not the best ramen in New York, but tasty nonetheless.

    The staff was very helpful and acknowledged. Our server took all non-GF orders and the the manager took care of the GF order, making it clear that all the food would be cooked separately in order to avoid as much as possible any cross contamination. The duck wraps were really good and the Ramen was nice.

    Good food! Not a huge variety of options. They knew about gluten intolerance to an extent. I would suggest, stating that you can not have gluten because of an allergy! Will make the ordering process easier. They also had gluten free soy sauce.

    Pleasantly surprised by the GF menu & because I have other allergies they gave me notebook that listed all the menu options & what allergens they contain. It made eating out feel a lot more straight forward & enjoyable. Will definitely go back!

    Wagamama offers a detailed allergen list with the specific instructions for them to make an item safe. when you order, the kitchen will specifically clean their tools and workspace before preparing your order. Your options will be a bit limited, but you can get rice bowls, curries, ramen (with rice noodles), etc.

    really tasty soup and they had an allergen menu. I did feel it was it was a tad expensive, mostly due to the fact the the GF options were available mostly if you subtracted stuff (I.e. get the ramen without all if the stuff that is tasty), but I would recommend. I didn't feel sick after so that was enough for me. Also, it can take a little longer for your meal to come as they are preparing the surfaces to cook it on. Be patient it's with the wait for yummy food and no contamination :)

    There is an extensive menu a small part of which is gluten free. On the gf menu there is statement about how careful they have been in the kitchen to avoid any cross contamination.

    The gluten free items were not clearly marked in the menu and while the staff understood how to handle the order, my food came out SIGNIFICANTLY later than the rest of the table. And the vegetables didn't taste cooked enough. Not to mention, I waited another 5 minutes or so for gluten free soy sauce. Also, no one apologized for the extra long, 20 minutes or more after the rest of my party had been served, wait. The food sucked and the wait staff was mediocre, at best. I wouldn't recommend wasting your time with either unless you have the time and don't care about any of the reasons for going to a restaurant!

    While good was excellent and they seemed knowledgeable (they have a menu to show what needs to change to make it gluten free) however I do not think the kitchen takes appropriate precautions. My husband ended up getting sick after eating here.

    There is only one gluten free sauce, so you better like that one. I ended up with horribly bland plain chicken on plain rice.

    I love Wagamama, but the fryer is shared and the staff is not trained to point out which menu items come from the shared fryer. I stick to rice and steamed veggies after getting sick a few times.

    Wagamama used to have gluten free options listed on the menu and they decided to take them off. The only gluten free options are 1 soup with rice noodles or a stirfry dish made without soy sauce. The staff are accommodating, but the food is very bland without any flavoring.

    Haven't eaten here, but the dietary filter on the website says only "cereals",..not gluten, not rice, not wheat...and then it takes you to items that contain noodles, possibly rice noodles...I'm sorry, is rice not a cereal grain??
