    CELIAC BEWARE! The one star is for the nice server I had and also because their peanut sauce was decent. Unfortunately, that's it. I have celiac disease and have to eat gluten free so I seek out restaurants with dedicated gf menus. I don't want to trouble anyone because of my situation but really appreciate places who make the effort. Like many celiac, I'm an excellent tipper and I'll happily pay more for food that doesn't make me sick! This restaurant has a dedicated gluten free menu. Unfortunately, my experience was horrid and I can't recommend this for any celiac. When my peanut chicken arrived the first time, most of the noodles were egg noodles. They looked yummy but I asked and they were not gluten free. They apologized and brought me the rice noodle version. They were not busy at all at time. More than halfway through the dish, I found a few of the gluten full noodles in my bowl. Most likely, they cook noodles in the same pot. I also ordered a drink and they completely forgot. The peanut sauce was good...not outstanding but certainly solid. I watched the sushi being made and it looked just ok. If you are gluten free (particularly celiac) please avoid. To the owner: please specify on your gf menu that there is cross contamination and food is not suitable for celiacs. We won't hate you for being honest, but we will hate you for being disingenuous. I was sick all afternoon.
