    This place is amazing! Even with most GF Chinese places I don't feel great but this place! The food was delicious and so many options for gluten intolerant. Even options for celiac. The service was the very best! Neighbourhood gem!

    Fantastic! The chef came to our table and explained what could be made gluten-free and what could not. He made a special dish for both our Celiac kids and a different one for me. It was delicious snd safe. Our new favorite Chinese restaurant.

    Worth the drive to finally get GF Chinese food! They can make gf fried rice and general tso chicken! Eaten here multiple times and never any issues. Staff is very knowledgeable; though careful they do throw in non-GF soy sauce and fortune cookies in the bag.

    Called my order in an hour ahead and it still wasn’t ready when I got there. When I asked how long it would be the owner came out of the kitchen and literally yelled at me that “they were cleaning the woks out just for my order and it would take another 20 minutes”. He was incredibly rude and was clearly annoyed that I dare ask for GF food. Obviously they don’t use separate dish ware for the gluten free dishes - they just wash their regular woks. This is not acceptable. I left without my food since I would never risk my kids health eating here. Add to that the horrible customer service and I don’t know why anyone would eat here.

    The manager was very helpful and thorough about what what gluten-free on the menu. I'm not celiac, so I was able to eat the gluten-free sesame chicken with no issue. If I'm in the area, I would definitely come back again!

    I have celiac so I was a little nervous going in, but they take amazing care to not cross contaminate anything. The breaded things cannot be eaten by someone with celiac because although the food is gluten free they told me they use the same dryer. They understand celiac disease and how critical it is to not have a spec of it in our food. The guy (think he may own it) sat down and went over the entire menu and what I could/couldn't have and what has a chance of cross contamination. He also recommended things by how flavorful they were. I will definitely be back here when I am in this city again. I waited for a day to do this survey to make sure I would not be sick. Oh and I had Mongolian beef. A little expensive for the amount of food you get, but since I never get Chinese food I was happy to pay it.

    Staff seems knowledgeable, and food is delicious. However, be cautious! The first two times I ate here with no problems. Unfortunately on the third time I got dreadfully sick, as did my daughter (we both have Celiac). I'm really not sure about trying it again.

    I grew up in Annandale & always loved Duck Chang's. I've lived iut of the area for the past 13 years, and have since stopped eating gluten b/c my children were diagnosed with Celiac. I was just in town for the day & was so excited to see that they offer good gf options here. We had the gf General Tso's Chicken & the gf Sesame Chicken, and both were great. I only wish we had these options closer to where we live, but we'll definitely come back whenever we're in town!

    Love this place! Have eaten here several times with no problems, so I know they are careful about cross contamination. Their General Tso's Chicken is delicious and tastes like the real deal! I am bummed that their fried rice and sweet and sour chicken is not GF, but still incredibly grateful to have any sort of Chinese takeout - especially something as yummy as this- available to me as an option! Thank you, Duck Chang's!!!

    I haven't even received my food yet, but just had to post how kind and awesome the service is here. Owner/chef came out himself and walked me through the menu. He is able to make General Tsao Chicken gluten-free! Some things are obviously not able to be GF, but they make extraordinary attempts to have a lot of options. I really expected there to be only a few choices.

    The manager's daughter has many food allergies, wheat included. They are very careful about preparation of food & can make many of the dishes gluten free. Horray for Chinese food!

    The owner's child is celiac and they can make several dishes GF. I usually get the sweet Sesame Chicken, Hunan Chicken, Chicken Curry, or Szechuan String Beans.
