    Really good casual Asian food. Very comparable to chipotle in how it's set up. Everything is gluten free so no need to worry about cross contamination.

    Oh thank goodness this place exists! Think “Chipotle meets amazing diverse stir fry” in the very best gluten-free and dairy-free sort of way.

    Healthy, delicious and spicy. I’ve eaten here 3 times now. Love the coconut curry sauce and earth curry and fire bowl. Also being able to build my own. Seasonal Napa lettuce wrap made it to my list of favorites. This is likely going to become a staple on my go-to restaurant list.

    Trendy pan-Asian restaurant which is wholly GF. You pick your dishes and/or ingredients, and they stir fry it for you, and item at a time. Very good food, but ask about the level of spiciness if you don’t have a taste for hot foods.

    I'm dying! This was the best gluten-free, dairy free, Paleo food I have ever had at a restaurant! Grass-fed meat!!! They even have vegetarian options for my husband! Very impressed! Will probably go back again tomorrow. Please come to Grand Rapids Michigan. We need you!

    Very good food. Chose your meat, sauce and veggies to be stir fried. The spring rolls were cold- not fried which was disappointing. Celiac safe!!

    Everything here is gluten free! Great to not have to worry about cooking noodles in the same pans or if the sauces are safe. Good prices too. Quick and easy! Highly recommend

    I've eaten here several times and never got sick. Educated on Celiac. Most of their sauces are GF and you can make your own stir fry rice bowls. It's like Chipotle for stir fry. Always fresh and delish, love the Teriyaki bowl.

    Agree with the cashew sauce possibly having gluten. The food was soooo delicious! But I did have a reaction about an hour later 👎🏼

    100% GF restaurant with very knowledgeable staff, so it's hard to say anything bad! Food was really good. You can choose your base of rice or noodles, and add proteins/veggies/sauce as you like, with add-ins like fried egg as well. Everything is cooked fresh and right in front of you. Place is large, lots of tables and VERY clean. My mom and I both enjoyed our bowls. They also had GF spring rolls (nice change for those of us with celiac) however they were just OK.

    Completely dedicated gluten free facility. Vegan options. Very clean. Plenty of tables and seats. Food was cooked fresh. The meal was hot fresh and extremely delicious! I will definitely come here again next time I am in downtown Chicago. It is close enough to the Art Institute to walk there.

    Loved this little gem! Great concept and friendly staff. My daughter and I both had the cashew sauce, but chose different starch, protein, and veggies. I thought the sauce was amazing, but my daughter thought it was too strong. The portion was generous and I was sad to leave mine behind since taking it with us wouldn't have been practical.

    Wow! Amazing concept. Pick your base (rice , rice noodles or greens), pick your sauce , pick your protein and veggies. Three of the five in our group were gluten free. Everyone enjoyed their food. It was so quick. Line was long but moved really quick. Staff was very helpful with our first time visit. Would go back again in a heartbeat.

    Was told everything was gluten free, but my my reaction an hour later suggests perhaps the cashew sauce or something else has some gluten. 😪Tasted wonderful though!

    We took our 3 and 5 year old boys here for dinner as we checked out the xmas lights on State St since we have 2 Celiac/dairy free people in the family. Nice selection of food and everything is gluten and dairy free. Kids love their meals which came in a monkey bowl and a cup of fruit ice tea. Too bad they don't have a suburban location near us!
