    The service was good and the food was pretty tasty, but both me and my boyfriend ended up with stomach aches afterwards. I don't necessarily think it was because of gluten cross-contamination because the bf is not Celiac, but the food is REALLY spicy. I don't think I'll be able to eat here again, in spite of its convenient location.

    I ordered a hot dog on a gluten free bun. I could see the guy making it in the kitchen, RIGHT NEXT TO my bf's regular hot dog. He wasn't taking any precautions to prepare mine separately. When it was delivered, I noticed the bun was toasted. I asked if they toasted it in a separate oven, and they said they use the same toaster oven for both regular bread and gluten free bread. I decided not to eat my meal, opting to avoid getting sick from cross contamination.

    The baked goods were delicious, but I think they're using the Rice Dream brand Rice Milk in their products, because I definitely had a reaction to everything I tried here. Rice Dream uses a barley enzyme which a lot of Celiacs react to. I cannot drink their products, even though they're labeled "Gluten Free". They're only gluten free below 20 PPM, but that's still too high for me. :(

    The only restaurant aside from Mariposa Bakery that I can feel 100% comfortable eating at. Not to mention the fact that the food is delicious! I wish I lived closer to this place.

    This restaurant doesn't even know what the word "gluten" means. They did not know that soy sauce contains wheat until I explained this to them. I got glutened very bad from this place, and should have walked out the door after discovering that this is NOT a gluten-free friendly establishment in the slightest. I ate here because it showed up in my Find Me Gluten Free app for restaurants located in the area of the city I was visiting, and the other review implied the Bibimbap was gluten free if you didn't add the additional sauce. However, they used soy sauce in the Bimbimbap on the meat. They were accommodating enough to replace my order with a veggie Bimbimbap, but there was clearly hidden sources of sauce on the tofu as well, and they take no measures to separate their preparation of gluten-containing and non-gluten-containing food. The food was delicious, but if you're a sensitive Celiac, do not eat at this place unless you're willing to make the sacrifice for a taste of authentic Korean food.
