I have celiac and order from Asian Outpost Hawaiian Hideout every week. I have never had any issues, as ALL items that indicate GF I stick with. There was this one time, that I wanted Mongolian Chicken and asked if they can prepare it GF, they were able to accommodate as it was not busy at the time.
They have an entire section dedicated to mostly GF items.
a wide variety of options
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
This is worth noting for any hermits who want to dine in the comfort of their own home. I've ordered from Asian Outpost several times (and everything's generally pretty tasty for their having a pan-Asian menu), but this was a bit of a bummer.
Friday night, I was looking to get some takeout for my sister and BIL (who has celiac) who were visiting from Cincinnati before we hit the town for the evening. I was feeling pretty sanguine about our chances, given the good reviews, and we put in an order for pad thai using their online ordering system, taking additional care to note on the item and on the order that the dish was intended for someone with celiac and asking them to be careful.
Unluckily for him (or half-luckily for him and the rest of us), his half-hour waiting period had elapsed as soon as we'd pulled out of our parking garage and he bailed to take care of business, never to return. The rest of our party would go on to complete an escape room, and he was fortunate enough to escape the bathroom and pass out on the bed for the rest of the night. My sister and husband stopped razzing me about trying to kill him after an incident-free brunch the next morning, but I'm still feeling guilty.
Hate to give this a complete thumbs-down for celiac-friendly, but so it goes. You're probably in good hands when having dinner on-site, but I would proceed with caution where it comes to delivery and pick-up orders. Or at least try to phone them in, since I couldn't say that the order notes get read.
Wonderful food, friendly staff. The manager was so concerned about making sure we enjoyed our meal and had enjoyed the selection of gluten friendly food. The food was delicious - some of the best I've ever had. The manager was also so kind in giving us a complimentary mango dessert that she made specifically for people with celiac. Will definitely come back if I'm in the area again
Delicious! Gluten friendly items clearly marked on menu. (Not sure if it’s 100% celiac friendly, but was great for me who is gluten Intolerant). I had the Cantonese Vegan Kow (But i added chicken- has a yummy sauce with mixed veggies). I went back two days later to have fried rice & the Thai Panang curry. Yum! Reasonably priced as well. AND they deliver!
Everything was freshly prepared and delicious. GF menu. Waitstaff totally accommodating. I got to enjoy dishes I hadn't had in years.
They have a GF menu. Staff are also knowledgeable about what can be adapted. I usually get the pad thai which is quite good.
They have a separate GF menu & knowledgeable staff. The miso soup, lettuce wrap & pad see ewe as well as my husband's glutinous dish were very good & filling.
The food at Asian Outpost was delicious! One of the best meals we had when we visited Chicago. Unique options with lots to choose from. The menu has clearly marked GF items, and the waitress was also very knowledgeable about the menu as well. She brought us a bottle of GF soy sauce, which was a treat for us since no restaurants where we live have GF soy sauce.
I 100% recommend this restaurant!
Visiting Chicago and went out to dinner with friends. Asian Outpost recently opened and the owner Lois was amazing! She walked me through the menu which has identified GF items. She even altered menu options to make sure they were GF and dairy free. I will definitely return to Asian Outpost on my next visit to Chicago!
