    I would have given it 0 stars but the app wouldn't let me. My husband and I brought our two daughters here on July 30th. They have celiac disease and we saw they had a few good ratings for being good for gluten free. NOT TRUE!!! They teenager at the counter when we enter and asked about GF told us that everything there was GF. I asked her in shock multiple times to clarify and she insisted it all was. We were so excited, thinking the owner must have celiac also. We ordered the food, again clarifying that it would be GF. She said yes, then later when I asked about the won ton soup she said, "oh, not that". As was the same for other items. So much for Everything being GF. My daughters ordered sweet and sour chicken and pork which we were told would be made GF with corn starch instead of wheat flour. My 9 year old was SO sick after this. When I called them the women told me that it is actually made with one part corn starch to two parts wheat flour. I am so furious am disgusted that they would lie to people. DO NOT trust this place!!!

    I recently discovered this restaurant, despite living in town for over 15 years. Food quality is excellent overall. They are very accommodating when I let them know about my celiac disease. The only reason I don't give them five stars is that their soy sauce (Kikoman) is NOT gluten-free, so you will want to avoid any dishes that contain soy sauce. They will tell you if you ask which are "safe" in this respect. However, I just learned that you can request that they cook your food with carry-out soy sauce packets, instead of the Kikoman sauce. These packets are Kari-Out brand, and from what I can determine, are gluten-free. This restaurant is a very good option for people with gluten issues who enjoy Chinese food.

    I come here all the time and I've never had a problem. They'll make anything with gluten free soy sauce if you ask, and it tastes amazing! They also wash all cooking utensils after each use, so there's no need to worry about cross contamination.
