Had an excellent, filling meal here. The menu is very clearly labeled as to what is gluten free and what isn’t. I will note that if you’re not careful, the dim sum menu can be confusing as to which column the symbol is marking as gluten free. My friend made a mistake initially, and I corrected her. I ordered off the gluten free menu and the dim sum. It’s unfortunate that the gluten free menu doesn’t have any lunch special options, so you’re forced off the bat to pay twice as much as everyone else, but I guess we have to be used to that already lol. The soup I had was memorable and delicious (spinach mushroom). Will definitely be going back.
I got glutened here last week. My boyfriend’s mom spoke to the waitress in Chinese to ask about gluten and contamination, and we ordered everything for the table to be gluten free. We did dim sum and 2 entrees from the gluten free menu. The waitress said that they share the fryer with gluten items, so we asked for items to be sautéed instead of fried. I still got sick. This may have been a one time thing, but a mistake was definitely made. I was very disappointed since the reviews had been so positive.
Great food! Safe to eat at! And the people were really nice too???? What a concept!!! Haha but seriously this place was GREAT. I had the ginger pine nut fried rice and it was so good. My boyfriend (not gluten free) was really happy with his food, and he said if I hadn’t said anything he wouldn’t have noticed the chicken wasn’t real. Fair warning though-the food is very filling and the servings are huge! You could easily share a plate with someone or just have leftovers. Make sure you use silverware as wooden chopsticks that are reused can often lead to cross contamination.
Went here for Dim Sum - was impressed to find a menu with tons of options - and dumplings!! Make sure to specify gluten free when you order the starred options and they will bring you GF Tamari. The mock meat leaves a bit to be desired taste wise so I would recommend sticking to the veggie/mushroom based dishes which were more flavourful.
When I saw a vegetarian Chinese restaurant with numerous gluten free options, I knew I had to try it! We went there on a Sunday for brunch and it was packed with a line forming out the door. There was a tall crabby guy with a bad attitude that was seating people. When I called to make a reservation, they said they don't take any. As food was whizzing by to tables, my husband asked the same tall guy what one of the deserts were and he was very curt and just said the name of it in Chinese. Like we understand Mandarin or Cantonese or know what he said?!?! So we finally got our table and placed our order. 1 small appetizer arrives after 30 minutes at the table. And about 50 min-1 hr after we sat down, all the food we ordered comes out all at once! So we ask for hot sauce and they come with a tiny container containing about 2 tablespoons hot sauce for 4 PEOPLE! So we ask the waiters again for more hot sauce & they didn't bring us any! We were all so hungry that we scarfed down the food only to realize they never gave us water or refilled the teapot! We ask for the water and it comes to us as we ask for the check. All in all, poor customer service, but GOOD food. There were only 3 waiters running around and I can understand it's difficult! If a restaurant is that busy during Sunday brunch, they need to hire more help! In conclusion, the food was good and I would recommend the jellyfish and seaweed wrap appetizer as I only ate the gluten free dishes. The coconut dessert type thing is really good but make sure you have water nearby because it is dry! TO SUM UP: ORDER TAKEOUT or don't do Sunday brunch there!!!!! I can't speak for the rest of the week and how crowded it is, so maybe service is better during the week. Food is good but poor customer service means I wont be visiting here again.
The gluten-free items are clearly marked on the Dim Sum list, and they have a separate gluten-free menu for kitchen items. However I didn't order any kitchen items so I can't speak to cross-contamination, but I have celiac and had no problems eating there today. The owner (or manager, or whoever I spoke to) was very understanding. Great dim sum, and not to mention cheap.
Mom and I ate here today, since it was one of the few "near me" locations that didn't involve pizza or pasta. I was skeptical of the vegan/vegetarian part, since I have allergies to some veggies. The food we ordered was great. Mom got the 'chicken' with Chinese broccoli in black pepper sauce and watercress dumplings. I got the spicy 'meat' with green peppers. Very delicious but I can't say yes/no on if it's celiac - friendly because I don't know how their kitchen is for cross - contamination. Overall a great place that I would recommend.
100% vegetarian Chinatown restaurant. This is not Americanized Chinese food. They have fake meat for all dishes much of which is made with wheat gluten. However, they do also have a bunch of GF items. Food was interesting and not what I was used to. It's also Kosher. I'm not sure how much I trust their kitchen for CC but it was certainly an experience.
