Delicious gluten free donuts. They have a mochi like texture on the inside and crispy fried dough on the outside. The donuts are gluten free and are marked on the menu. The cream puffs are not gluten free.

I didn’t realize the place was Asian but it didn’t matter. The donuts wore the best gluten-free donuts I’ve ever had. We got the strawberry and crème brûlée doughnut. I believe it was called. And they were fantastic. The second one tasted like a funnel cake. We ended up going back to get more. Highly recommend and I would go there next time I’m in New York City

I’ve had this place on my radar for a while and finally made it! These donuts are delicious and so gorgeous! All donuts but the cereal donut are gf. We tried the brûlée and onyx donut, both of which were unbelievably good. They were soft and chewy and had a delicious flavor. I can’t wait to go back and try the other flavors! The cream puffs do contain gluten, but I had no issues with their procedures and did not get sick.

Incredible donuts. Loved the taro donut holes and every flavor of donut we tried. Interesting flavors and just such a good texture! The chai tea was spicy and delicious too.

Fun donuts (not traditional but yummy and pretty). Went with a group and I enjoyed a bit of strawberry mochi donut & the black sesame. Also has tastes of the taro and double chocolate munchkins (think donut hole sized). The teens I went with all loved them. I double checked the mochi and munchkins were GF and all but the cereal mochi was. They made sure to get my name to make sure my donut was handled with care.

Mochi donuts made with rice flour. Chewy and delicious. (Not traditional cake donuts.) I’ve had the dark chocolate Onyx donut and the black sesame seed donut. I plan to eat my way through the donut menu. Caution: cream puffs are not gluten free. Also, they serve the spiciest chai I’ve had maybe ever. Note: there’s only seating outside.

Oh my god. I’m sitting outside in 30 degree weather eating the best doughnuts I’ve ever had. Amazingly, they happen to be gluten free. Additionally, the Chai tea with Turmeric and the Dexox Lemonade are incredible too. This place is amazing. Can’t recommend them enough.

DELICIOUS !! so so good. warm and fresh and out in less than five minutes. I will say- the menu is NOT marked- you’ll have to ask the staff for specifics (or do what I did and look on here haha!). But all of the donuts (excluding the cereal one) and the munchkins are gluten free. so good. and cheap!!

The taro-flavored munchkins (donut holes) were one of the best things I’ve eaten this year. Made to order and so hot and chewy. They were one of the very few dairy free options here.

Any of the mochi donuts or munchkins are safe except the cereal one (because of the cereal they put on top). Tastes like a GF funnel cake!
