I have talked to the owner. They make sure that GF foods are made separately. They have GF sushi. The counters are cleaned, gloves changed, and new mats are put down before making sushi. They even have GF soy sauce if you need.
The food is amazing and the portions are big. I always have enough leftovers for a second meal. About half of the regular menu is GF so there are a lot of choices between the hot dishes as well as their sushi.
8/2/20- Since Covid we have driven an hour to do pickup about 4 times ( once a month) . Ordering is easy on line and the food is as delicious as always.
12/23/19- another awesome meal. Crouching Tiger roll and crispy salt and pepper shrimp.
10/19/19- Amazing meal. Sashimi roll and orange chicken.
9/7/19- again an awesome dinner. They even had GF soy sauce.
Check them out.
Ate on 5/26/19. What a great meal. Spicy tuna roll and a philly roll were amazing. The orange chicken was so good! I asked questions and they even had GF next to my meal on the receipt. My food was also brought out separately.
Ate at Asuka on 12/30/18. What a great meal. I was nervous at first because I wasn’t sure that the waitress understood my concerns with cross contamination, but she let me know that clean pans were used and gloves were changed for my fried rice and no soy sauce was used. For my sushi roll, Three Musketeers, she let me know that the chef was cleaning the area and changing mats as well as gloves. It was the first sushi I’ve had in two years, and it was amazing! The pork fried rice was great! I would recommend this place, but I would also recommend that you ask questions as let them know how to keep you safe.

The ownerhas a family member with celiacs, so they fully understand the precautions needed.
I was thrilled to find out that I could still eat Chinese take out even though I get terribly ill from eating gluten. I almost always order their chicken and broccoli (brown sauce) and have shared it with other family members who can't believe how good it is. You can't tell you're eating gf. I eat here fairly often.

Awesome selection of gluten free options. I had food I haven’t had in a long time, from quality sushi to Chinese dishes. I have high expectations and was very surprised. Will definitely be back. Thank you Asuka!

Awesome gluten free options all so tasty. Ate multiple times here and take out never had reaction just make sure to say gluten free
Update 4-2020 Had reaction to take out food option also found cross contamination with lo mein noodles.
Great food, good about GF and cross contamination
So good... clean and so tasty!
Been here many times. You may need to be a little specific, no crunch, but if Garry is there just let him know your needs and you'll be good.
So good! Tastes just like non gf Chinese. Double checked with us to make sure everything was correct and that they were gluten free. Super nice staff and super worth the 30min drive
Simply one of the BEST gf places around. Hawaiian fried rice is superb & my staple order. Sometimes I order other things too & I’ve never not liked what I’ve gotten. I have also never had a reaction (I’m celiac)
So knowledgeable and careful about GF. They really make you confident that they are doing their best by Celiac sufferers. The menu is huge, the staff is lovely, and The best part, the food is soooo good! I’d really been missing Chinese food, but no more!
A few specifics: sesame chicken, firecracker shrimp, the pad Thai is spicy but so good. They also have lots of gf sushi.
Love this place and go on the regular!
Food was excellent and staff were very friendly. They were knowledgeable about gluten free menu.
Stopped here on my way to Philly. Had General Tsos chicken and pork fried rice. The serving sizes are huge and everything tasted amazing. First time having Chinese food in years, definitely would recommend.
Seriously the BEST gluten free sushi and chinese food in the area. Have yet to try their vietnamese food but I bet it is the bomb also. I am an extremely picky eater when it comes to buying food that I am not preparing myself.... this is the one to choose. We have never gotten a celiac reaction, the restaurant is always SUPER clean.
This place is great, my fiancé and I have become regulars there. He is able to get sushi and his favorite, general tso’s chicken and has never had an issue of feeling sick. We go there all the time and can’t wait to go back!
Fantastic find! Chinese food is something I've greatly missed, and not easily replicated at home. Not only were there many options, but staff was well educated. Had the General Tso's and shrimp fried rice, and didn't get sick. Can't wait to get back and try out many of their other options!
Awesome gluten free menu! Celiac safe and super tasty!
Guys, this place is the type of place to make a gluten/dairy free person SCREAM for joy. Multi page gluten free menu, lunch and dinner specials with fried rice and soup.. sushi, Chinese food, appetizers. It’s amazing. I go at least once a week. For someone who has sought out gluten free Chinese food/takeout for years.. I am in love with Asuka. They also have great fried foods that are gluten free.. sesame chicken, general tso, my favorite.. walnut shrimp. Fried and topped with candied walnuts and a creamy dairy free sauce. Go there :)
Love, love, love this place. So many gluten free options. My daughter and I are celiac and have never had a bad reaction. You should definitely try this place. Very friendly staff. They never seem to be bothered by my gf requests. Great food!!
I love this restaurant. They have a wonderful gluten free menu. Everything is so good. Managers and staff are very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
The only Chinese food we can and will trust to eat at in philadelphia area. Amazing variety and taste
The food is delicious. It is 100% gluten free! A must try!
GF Menu and soy sauce available upon request. The food is delicious and extra care is given for gf clientele. We were told there is a separate prep area/fryer for gf items. I was shocked when my daughters orange chicken came out fried and crispy. I inquired to double check that it was gf and was told they coat fried items in potato starch. Genius point! My daughter was over the moon excited that she could have something fried like she remembered before going GF.
I have celiac disease. I got the general tso's on my bday and was mildly terrified because it is fried. But no stomach ache and no after effects. I've gotten other items ever since and it's becoming a routine.
Very friendly and gf knowledgeable staff. The food is excellent. This is my family's favorite restaurant!!
they were very knowledgeable about gluten. knew which menu items were safe, could be modified, and could not. we called 3 times before ordering, and every person was educated on gluten free.
Extensive menu. Initially I was nervous about cross contamination. I had soup, sushi and Kung Pao Chicken. The food was savory and I wanted more. The service was excellent and the server was knowledgeable about GF and cross contamination. The server didn't seem annoyed by my GF menu questioning and quizzing. Going back tomorrow.
Love this place - great food and very understanding about the interrogations we often put our servers through to be sure we don't get glutened. GF menu and willing to make alterations to things that are not on it, and will explain the differences as well as offering alternatives to make it better with the alterations.
fantastic Chinese food that's is GF!!
I was SO excited to go out for a date night to Asuka after reading about their dedicated GF menu which is hard to find in Asian restaurants. My hostess and waitress were very well aware of my gluten allergy and I ordered the lettuce wraps off of the GF menu. They were fantastic, but before I could even finish them I started feeling sick. I was unable to eat my GF entree because I was so uncomfortable. When the hostess noticed my distress she said, "You ordered the lettuce wraps gluten free, right?" I said, "Yes". She responded, "You didn't eat the sauce with them did you?" I responded, "Yes, I did". She then proceeded to tell me that the sauce is NOT gluten free. That might have been helpful to know before I ate it considering I specifically ordered them GF. She took the $8 appetizer off of our bill, but still charged me full price for my entree that I was too sick to eat which in my opinion was terrible customer service. Overall we spent $30 for me to get sick. It was terribly disappointing and I would not go back for fear of being sickened again. I give them two stars only because the food actually tasted great, but if you're concerned about contamination, I wouldn't risk it. Clearly their staff is not well-educated on GF.
wonderful experience for my birthday. my husband is gluten free and he had a wide variety of options to choose from. the staff was also wonderful and understanding with my kids. we will definitely be back!
Gluten free sushi & soy sauce, Chinese food, Japanese dishes. Very reasonably priced. Take out or eat in.
