I’ve successfully eaten the gluten free Penang curry and pad Thai on multiple occasions without getting sick. When getting takeout, my entree container comes wrapped in a sealed plastic bag to help avoid cross contamination from gluten-containing entrees, with a hot pink allergy sticker.

The 2 last times we’ve ordered we’ve tested with our Nima sensor and both times it came back positive for gluten. We’re so bitterly disappointed.

Had the lettuce wraps and Thai pepper basil dish. Lettuce wraps were not what I expected, still good, but more like chicken in brown sauce served with bibb lettuce. Been sick for over 12 hours, was fine before eating here.

Love Big Bowl! I have been eating there about once a month since 2015, and the food is always consistent. Knowledgeable staff (waiters, managers, chefs) about celiac, and they take precautions against cross contamination. Highly recommend if you have never been to Big Bowl before.

The server was very knowledgeable on cross contamination and kitchen practices. They have a separate kitchen space to prepare the meal and use special allergy plates. The manager brings out all allergy meals. The food is good, not great, but it was a safe meal so I’d go back.

Just ate here last night. Mongolian beef was yummo as was the pick your own stir fry. Food comes out in "allergy" bowls. The stir fry was made with it's own pan, utensils, etc... Very attentive to cross-contamination. My husband ordered a gf beer but they had run out. They usually do have one on hand though. Great option!

I had the green curry with chicken. Had some heat to it, but was some of the best seasoned food I’d had at an Asian restaurant recently. Service was great

I felt extremely safe eating here. When we were sat down i asked my waitress for the gluten free menu. she knew what to do and gave it to me. after i ordered, she assured me they deal with gluten free needs all the time. I have not gotten sick and i had a great experience.

As someone GF DF. - I had the Mongolian Beef mixed with the rice noodles vs rice. The sauce was very flavorful but the dish was made with excess oil so that was disappointing. The beef was a bit tough and required chewing. The mushrooms were quite tasty but the dish was heavy on the scallions. My husband had the chicken fried rice. He enjoyed the dish but it had remnants of peanut oil smell. If you have allegories to nuts or peanuts you probably need to be careful or ask if your dishes can be prepared in a separate place.
