I’m a big fan of Asian cuisine, so the fact that nearly any dish can accommodate celiac needs makes this a favorite of our family. From sushi to fried rice, we have tried many dishes from Cafe Asia and are always pleased with the result.

We found this place in Dec 2022 and they made FANTASTIC GF orange chicken. No symptoms/issues with GF CC. (My son had the red snapper Nigiri and got violently ill- not from GF issue, but food poisoning).

We were passing through the area again Jan 9, 2023 and (minus the Nigiri) were excited about the GF Orange Chicken again. Idk what they served and the waitress and cook even said it wasn't right, so they tried to "add something" to see if it fixed it (that makes no sense and doesn't instill confidence in competency), and it was disgusting. Waitress apologized and removed from bill- I didn't go for 3rd try.

What a disappointment, we won't be back.

On a side note: waitress said they can make any menu item GF... idk how that is possible, I didn't press my luck further than dinner.

They always seem very accommodating and haven't had a problem yet! Always ask! They can make most dishes gf but they have told me when they can't.

I'm not sure how many of their items are gluten free, but their Pad Thai and Fried Rice entrees can be made with gf soy sauce. Other than that, super delicious sushi & great staff!
